FOOTBALL:  Kings and Turpin look to defend their 2015 ECC co-championships.  Both teams finished last season with identical 9-1 records overall and 6-1 in the Conference.  In addition, the Knights, the Spartans, and the Glen Este Trojans advanced to the OHSAA playoffs.  The 2016 season enters week six, with only one team sitting at 5-0, the Turpin Spartans.

BOYS' GOLF:  The Milford Eagles will be shooting for their third consecutive ECC title this fall.  This year's Preseason Tournament title went to the Milford.  The Eagles finished five shots ahead of runner-up Loveland (307-312).  Milford's Nathan Arnold was Medalist with a 72 - two shots ahead of runner-up Cash Renfro from Turpin.  The postseason tourney is slated for Thursday (also at Glenview).

GIRLS' GOLF:  The Preseason tournament was held August 11 at Walden Ponds, with Loveland walking away with the victory.  Medalist honors went to the Lady Tigers' Alejandra Bonet, who shot an 83.  She finished just ahead of teammate Lindsey Bachmann (86).  The Postseason tournament was held September 22 at Walden Ponds, with the Loveland Lady Tigers coming away with the championship.  And, just like in 2015, Loveland will reign as your Eastern Cincinnati Conference winners!  Walnut Hills' Katie Hallinan was Medalist of the Postseason tourney, with Loveland's Alejandra Bonet and Lindsey Bachmann finishing second and third.

GIRLS' TENNIS:  Turpin walked away with last year's tennis title.  The Lady Spartans' Caitlin Fischer returns after advancing to the State Championships last fall as a freshman.  This year's ECC Championships will be held this morning at Lunken.

BOYS' SOCCER: If the script holds true, this could be the year for Walnut Hills.  The Eagles have alternated championship years with Turpin the past four years and the Spartans won the title last year.  Anderson and Turpin sit on top of the Conference standings with identical 4-0 records as of September 25.  The two teams square off Thursday at Turpin.

GIRLS' SOCCER:  Turpin knocked off Loveland in the final week of regular season play last fall to win the ECC title.  The Lady Tigers, however, went on to play for the Division I State title, falling 1-0 to the State's top-ranked team from Walsh Jesuit.  The Lady Tigers have picked up where they left off in 2015, compiling a fine 9-0-1 overall record (4-0 in the ECC) as of September 25.

BOYS' CROSS COUNTRY:  The Anderson Redskins look to defend their 2015 ECC cross country championship.  The ECC Championships will be held at Valley View on October 15.

GIRLS' CROSS COUNTRY:  Kings captured the ECC championship last season and Turpin came away with the District title.  The Lady Spartans feature Samantha Bush, who finished 17th in the State Meet last fall.  The 2015 ECC Championships will be held October 15 at Valley View.

VOLLEYBALL:  Last fall, Turpin became the first school to win two ECC championships in the sport of volleyball.  This fall, Loveland and Turpin are each 7-1 in Conference action, with Anderson one game back at 6-2 (as of September 25).
