Anderson Baseball Seniors

Anderson -
Baseball

The Redskins' seniors are all working hard. James Camden is an All-State three-sport athlete and very well-rounded young man. James is headed to UC to play football this fall. Ben Navaro is still looking for a college to continue his baseball career, but is going to pursue a career in medicine (doctor). Blake Hopkins is headed into the Army after graduation, good young man! Jack Huster is still looking for a college. He is also a basketball player and a good young man.


Milford Wrestling Eagle Scouts

Milford -
Wrestling

Three Milford wrestlers have earned, or are on the way to earning, the distinctive ranking of Eagle Scout. Juniors Chad Lynn and Connor Hawkins have already achieved the ranking of Eagle, and our third, Sophomore Cameron Pigg is working on completing his requirements as well. The leadership and citizenship these three young men have developed in the Scouts certainly carries over to the wrestling room as well as the classroom where they all find themselves on the Honor Roll. Chad and Connor both earned their second varsity letter this year wrestling 152 and 170 respectively. Cameron, making his way back from the IR list, worked hard to get back on the mats with some JV events by the end of the year. We commend him for his discipline making it back and being ready to compete. We are looking forward to an outstanding year in 2020-21 with these three EAGLES helping to leading the flock!

Sammie is already taking leadership opportunities in hoping to keep our girls motivated, program-wide. Keep up the good work, Sammie!


Winston Combs

Withrow - Senior

"Winston has been a leader at Withrow since I have known him. He is a three-sport athlete and goes above and beyond in the classroom everyday. He plays football, basketball, and baseball. I was lucky enough to coach him for both basketball and baseball and have seen what an amazing leader he truly is to his peers around him. When a player/team is down, he knows exactly how to lead by example and pick everyone up." - coach Robert Calder

Georgia Goering

Walnut Hills - Senior
Lacrosse

Georgia is a senior captain who for years has been a consistent leader and motivator, not just during the spring seasons, but throughout the year. This did not stop once school and athletics were suspended this spring. She has organized a wall ball/fitness challenge for all the girls on the varsity team. Girls earned points for different activities to keep themselves fit and to keep their skills sharp during this downtime. The challenge has now been expanded program wide to include JV and junior high girls having an impact on nearly 80 girls in our program. Not only is Georgia dedicated to the lacrosse program at Walnut Hills, she is dedicated to the sport of lacrosse as a whole; for example, coaching each year in the Eagles' youth lacrosse program.


Loveland Volleyball Juniors

Loveland -
Volleyball

"I've been really happy with my (future) senior class (current juniors): Maya Jepson, Diana Clark, Ellie Egan, Alex Miller, Abbie Miller and Faith Meece. They have really embraced their leadership roles during this crazy time. They have made an effort to reach out and connect with our incoming freshman to help ease the transition to high school and to welcome them to Loveland volleyball. They have been active on social media posting a "virtual" pepper with their teammates, competing in a baking competition, and posting baby pictures of current players and coaches on Twitter for fans to guess who it is. It has been great to see how they are taking control of this team in a very positive way." coach Brian Baugh


Zion Foster

Kings - Junior
Track

Zion is a true standout, on and off the track. During the 2020 indoor track season, Zion set the Kings High School record in the indoor 200 meter dash.

Anderson’s Unsung Heroes

Anderson -
Track

“Sometimes, some of your team leaders are the guys who do not yet have a medal hanging around their necks. I couldn’t be more proud of the leadership, work ethic, and dedication of guys like Luke McClain, Alex Ruff, and Alex Kowalak, just to name a few. Their day will come! Every real coach knows that it’s the “blue chippers” who get the headlines, but it’s the “blue-collar” leaders who make your program great. Thanks guys!” coach Andy Wolf


Emma Richardson

Volleyball

Emma brings empowerment quotes to focus on as a team bonding activity at our weekly Zoom meetings/workouts.


Loveland Boys’ Basketball Rising Seniors

Loveland -
Basketball

Our seven rising seniors have shown a great deal of leadership and compassion over the last several weeks. Sam Cox, Pete Craft, Zachary Danner, Drew Gleason, Caleb Herbon, Aaron Krabacher, and Casey McCluskey have put a plan into action in which each of them has taken a group of players representing each of our three underclasses, and helped them stay connected within our basketball program. They have provided their "families" of players with encouragement, as well as ideas on how to improve as basketball players. The coaching staff is very thankful to have these seven young men leading our program. They are making Loveland a better community for all of us.
