News and Notes

HS Boys Basketball

The boys team won their first tournament game knocking off #7 seed Anna in the 2nd round of the OHSAA tournament by a score of 64-61. After trailing early in the second half, the Spartans battled back to take the lead late in the game. With timely free throws and good defense, the Spartans held on for the win. Leading the way was Brody Denny (28 pts. and 4 steals), Micah Valenti (13 pts. and 6 rebounds), and Anthony Valenti (10 pts.). Ty Fritz had a monster game with 13 rebounds and 5 blocks. The team next takes on Preble Shawnee in the Sectional Final on Thursday. They will be looking to avenge a close loss back in December in the finals of the Preble Shawnee Holiday Tournament.

HS  Bowling

At Districts last week, Kage Gierek finished 23rd overall as an individual bowler.

HS Wrestling

The wrestling team traveled to Covington this weekend for wrestling sectionals.   The Spartans had 7 placers: AJ Cordell (6th),  Draven Gierek (5th - district alternate), Aiden Kleinberg (5th - district alternate),  Jack Kerridge (3rd - district qualifier), Lucas Schreiber (3rd - district qualifier), and finishing as Sectional runner ups and qualifying for districts was Hunter Foss and Zeran Brady.  

Also this weekend Bella Close went to the girls wrestling pre regional meet and placed 3rd going 1-1 on the day. She will wrestle in the girls regional this weekend at Harrison HS..

HS Swimming

At the state swim championships this past weekend, Jameson Cooke came home with a 3rd place finish in the 200 IM (1:54.47 - new school record) and a 5th place finish in the 100 Butterfly (:50.33 - a new school record). Both relay teams fell short of making the Finals finishing 21st in each of their two events. Congratulations to the boys team on a fantastic, record breaking season!
