For the second consecutive year, our own Walnut Hills High School has been named Ohio's top public high school by the US News and World Report.  Walnut Hills offers a rigorous classical program, requiring three years of Latin for incoming seventh and eighth graders.  There is an Advanced Placement Program offering 3O courses, more than any other school in the nation – public or private.  

The 2,400 member student body is culturally and ethnically diverse, with students attending from every urban neighborhood in Cincinnati.  Eighty-seven percent of the graduates enter college with advanced standing, and students score especially well on the Ohio Tests of Scholastic Achievement.  Upon graduation, Walnut Hills High School students are accepted by the finest universities and colleges throughout America.  Read more HERE.

Congratulations to the students, parents and guardians, staff, and administration of the school for the rich academic tradition that is Walnut Hills!

In addition, Kings High School (#15) and Turpin High School (#19) also ranked in the top twenty in Ohio!

BASEBALL:  The Milford Eagles will look to defend their 2015 ECC baseball crown.  If the Eagles do, it will be their fourth straight ECC championship.  The Eagles find themselves atop the Conference standings again with a 10-1 ECC record.  Loveland is close behind at 9-2 and Kings sits at 9-3 entering the week.

SOFTBALL:  The Milford Lady Eagles will be gunning for their third ECC championship in a row this spring.  The Lady Eagles are 15-2 overall and11-0 in the Conference, while Kings enters the week at 9-1 in ECC action. 

BOYS' TRACK:  Loveland won the ECC boys' track title last spring, but that's no surprise, the Tigers have won every ECC title since the inception of the league.  The Conference Meet will be held May 11 and 13 at Anderson High School.

GIRLS' TRACK:  The Withrow Lady Tigers won not only the ECC crown last spring, but they won the Division I State team title as well!  The Conference Meet will be held May 11 and 13 at Anderson High School.

BOYS' LACROSSE:  Loveland advanced to the OHSLA sweet sixteen last spring and should be strong again in 2016.  Anderson competed in the OHSLA Club Division tournament last year and also fared well.  Look for more ECC teams to adopt the sport this spring.  The OHSAA will officially recognize lacrosse as a school sport in 2016-17.

GIRLS' LACROSSE:  The Loveland Lady Tigers advanced to the third round of the OSLA State Tournament last year.  Again, look for more ECC teams to adopt the sport this spring.  The OHSAA will officially recognize lacrosse as a school sport in 2016-17.
