Wrestling Kicks Off!
Kathie Lucas

Both Junior High & High School wrestling gets underway this weekend.

Valley View Junior High will host their annual wrestling invitational coming up this Saturday, December 3, 2022.  This event will be held at the High School. In addition to volunteers running this event, we are in need of a couple food items which will be used in our hospitality area.  The hospitality area is set up as a way to thank volunteers, coaches and those officiating the meet.  Proceeds from this invitational go back into the wrestling program. We ask that items be brought to the High School by at least 10 am the morning of the invitational.  

Our High School varsity wrestlers will be competing in an Invitational at the Franklin Invitational on Saturday, December 3 and our JV wrestlers will compete at the Wilmington JV Invitational on the same day. Both events begin at 9:00 AM.

At the High School, First Semester Final Exams will be taken the two days before Winter Break. There will be a modified bell schedule for Monday, December 19 and a half-day of classes for Tuesday, December 20.

Students will receive a form to complete for permission to arrive late or leave early either day. On Tuesday, December 20, any student with their own transportation can leave once exams are completed provided they have completed this form.

Students who have a non-academic (e.g.: Study Hall) class first, second, sixth or seventh period can fill out the form to arrive late or leave early. Buses will be running at the regular times for both days. Students who do not have transportation to leave after midday on Tuesday may stay in a study hall until 2:38 PM. HOWEVER, we strongly encourage students to find a ride!

Here is the period/exam schedule for exam days:

The fall season came to an end on Friday when the Football team lost in the state semifinal game to a tough Ironton team. Although leading at halftime with scores from Jake Clark (1 yard TD run) and Austin Stidham (40 yard TD catch from Henson and a 3 yard punt block for a TD), the Fighting Tigers scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to end the game 35-21. We are beyond proud of the toughness our Spartans showed throughout the game. A huge congratulations goes out to the entire program on a fantastic season.

The winter sports season began November 19th when the girls basketball team hosted Miamisburg. The Lady Spartans dropped a hard fought game 50-47 and were led by Ellie Reed (19 points) and Riley Hodson (11 points). After 3 games, with losses to Talawanda and Oakwood, the Lady Spartans are led by Ellie Reed, who is averaging 19 points and 10 rebounds per game. The JV team finished the week with a record of 2-1 with wins over Talawanda and Oakwood.

The boys bowling team is off to a 1-1 start with a close loss to Newton (1839-1833) and a commanding victory over Alter (2004-1849). Andrew Albright currently leads the way with a 188 average followed by Jack Handy who has a 172.8 average.  The girls bowling team (currently 0-2) are led by Leah Adkins (107.3 average) and Kim Braden (106.5 average).

The rest of the winter season kicks off with a bang this week as JH boys and girls basketball, swimming, and JH and HS wrestling all get started with competition.
