BOYS ICE HOCKEY
The ice hockey team plans on demonstrating its improvement and strong team chemistry on the ice this season. Senior captain Alex West explained that the team has worked hard and has high expectations.
“Our close team allows for more natural play on the ice,” West said. “Everyone knows where to be and we can make some pretty dirty passes.”
The varsity team is scheduled to compete in the first game of its League Tournament, at home, the Dispatch Ice Haus, on Dec. 3, against Cincinnati Moeller.
With a goal to maintain its record of winning the OCC tournament for the second year in a row along with starting a new record of winning districts for the first time this year, the girls’ basketball team is showing their advantages on the court and through new strategies. According to senior captain Sarah Hobbs, the team’s small number of players is quickly made up by the speed the girls show on the court.
“We are a lot faster than last year. What we lost in size we make up in athleticism,” she said. “We also have strong perimeter players and good shooters. We work well as a team.”
The girls show off their new moves and speed in their first game against Thomas Worthington, on Dec. 7.
After a season of injuries in 2009, the wrestling team is looking forward to showing their improvement this winter, both mentally and physically.
As the upcoming season gets underway, senior captain Connor Pittman said it is crucial for the team to show commitment to lead to more wins and successes this winter.
“I’m thinking that once we get a little more commitment— a few more dedicated guys—that we’ll do a lot better [this upcoming season],” he said.
The wrestling team is scheduled to compete in its first tournament this winter season at home later this month. •
