Athletes Of The Week

Week:

Katie Hallinan

Walnut Hills - Junior
Golf

Katie is the ECC girls' golf champion again, firing a three-under par 69 at Walden Ponds. The highlight of the day was her eagle on the par-four seventeenth, where Katie drove the green and dropped a fifteen-foot putt for the deuce. In an earlier match on Monday at Cedar Trace, Katie put up a stellar two-under 33 to help keep the Lady Eagles close against a tough Clermont Northeastern home team, 200-207. Katie's season average nine-hole score stands now at 35.67, quite possibly the best ever for southwest Ohio high school girls' golf.


Sofia Dillhoff and Kirstin Thomas

Loveland -
Cross Country

Sofia, a freshman, led the varsity A Lady Tigers, placing twentieth and running a PR of 20:54. Kirstin, also a freshman, ran the entire 5K with the shoe with her chip on it in her hand. Unbelievable. All five scorers were freshmen for the Lady Tigers.


Sam Ray and Billy Southard

Anderson -
Soccer

Billy, a senior, and Sam, a junior, have been tandem keepers for the Redskins all season. They've posted six shutouts and have only allowed two goals in four ECC games to help the Redskins to a 9-1-1 overall record and 4-0 record in the Conference.


Sean Vonderhaar

Milford - Junior
Cross Country

Sean helped pace the Eagles to a second place finish at the Harrison Invite on Saturday. Sean's career-best time of 17:34 placed him twelfth overall at the meet. It was the blistering early pace by Vonderhaar that helped push Milford to the front of the pack, despite a tumble down a hill at practice this week! Great effort, Sean!


Morgan Morrow

Anderson - Sophomore
Golf

Morgan finished sixth out of 36 golfers at the ECC Postseason Tournament. She shot a career low 95.

Jordyn Rhodes

Soccer

Jordyn scored one goal in the 2-1 victory over Mercy on September 17 and all four goals in Kings' 4-2 win over Glen Este on September 20. Five goals in three days for the sophomore!


Kennedy Hymer

Kings - Junior
Volleyball

Kennedy, junior middle blocker, helped the Lady Knights go 2-0 this past week. She has 29 kills and 22 blocks on the year.


Leah Maschino

Kings - Junior
Cross Country

Leah had a personal-record performance at the highly competitive Centerville Saturday Night Lights Invitational. Her time of 18:35 placed her eleventh overall in a race of top state performers. It also made her the third fastest girl in Kings cross country history.


Adam Spelic

Kings - Freshman
Cross Country

Adam performed well in the freshman/sophomore race at the highly competitive Centerville Saturday Night Lights Invitational. He was fifth man for the Knights in that race to round out the team scoring and ran a 1:14 personal record for his high school career. The team will look for him to continue to gain strength in the 5K races.


Emily Glassburn and Autumn Clark

Glen Este -
Tennis

Emily, a sophomore, and Autumn, a junior, defeated Deer Park first doubles in the back draw of the Coaches' Classic this past week.


Claire Beran and Brooke Harden

Loveland -
Soccer

After the team had a sluggish first half against Anderson, Claire, a senior, responded in a big way in the second half as she was active at winning balls defensively, especially in the air, and put away two early goals in the second half in leading Loveland to a 3-1 victory and a 9-0-0 overall record and a 4-0-0 record in the ECC. Brooke, a sophomore, was outstanding in her play in the midfield in minimizing the effectiveness of a very good Mount Notre Dame midfield. Not only did Brooke play exceptional defense, but was instrumental in distributing the ball to assist in Loveland’s attack in their 0-0 tie with the number-three ranked Cougars.


Sara Meek and Jessie Pierce

Turpin -
Tennis

Sara, a junior, and Jessie, a sophomore, fought through a three-hour battle at the Coaches Classic.
