On Twitter, we found out that Indian Hill Cross Country and Track & Field Coach Sue Savage received a big honor.  She was recognized by the University of Chicago as an outstanding educator.  Coach Savage has always been a class act on the playing field.  She is equally the same in the classroom.  Congratulations Coach Savage!

Not many outside of the soccer community know that Bill Simpson of Reading is the head coach of both the Blue Devil girls' and boys' teams.  On September 15th, Reading girls' beat Goshen 1-0 to give Coach Simpson his 150th career win.  Congratulations Coach Simpson.

Sometimes, your SID can't get long stories complete in one sitting. An example would be the weekly update. So if you see "Story Under Construction" on a story site, come back later for more information.  When the story is done, it will have "Story Complete".

Current win streaks....
Wyoming Football - 25 regular season wins in a row (longest current streak for football in Ohio).
Wyoming Volleyball - 120 league wins in a row.
Indian Hill Girls' Tennis - 94 league wins in a row
Indian Hill Girls' Soccer - 30 straight games without a loss (27-0-3)

For the third week in the last four, it looks like Friday football games could be effected by storms.  Check Twitter throughout the evening.  If we have any postponed games, we will let you know when they will be rescheduled, most likely on Saturday.  Two schools, Deer Park & Wyoming have homecoming activities.

The Annual Tennis Coaches Classic will be held this Thursday & Saturday.  It will include almost every girls' tennis team in Southwest Ohio.  All five CHL teams will take part.  It is a unique tourney in that it divides the teams up according to the strength of the team.  That way everyone is competing on the same level.  Teams are divided into flights.  Here is the league teams flights/sites:
Indian Hill - Flight A, Mason High School
Wyoming - Flight B, St. Xavier High School
Mariemont - Flight C , Fairfield High School
Madeira - Flight E, Wilmington High School
Taylor - Flight H - Colerain High School

We hope to have the results later in the weekend.  Good luck to our league teams.

This how league schools are looking in the weekly Enquirer/Coaches polls, state polls, & Harbin Rankings.

The SID Game of the Week and ICRC broadcast turned out to be a great one.  4-0 Deer Park travelled over to Reading where the Blue Devils had won 9 of the last 10 contests between the two.  Reading started out fast scoring TDs on 2 of the first 3 plays they had the ball.  Cole Baker found Don'nek Patterson for a 51 yard score.  The first play of the next possession  Keonte Sanders scored on a 22 yard run.  Reading was ahead 13-0 after one quarter.  In the 2nd quarter, Jerry Heard got the Wildcats on the board with a 12 yard run.  On a botched punt, Reading got a safety.  On their next possession Sanders got his 2nd TD, this one on a 12 yard run.  Nathan Profitt PAT made it 22-7 Reading.  Deer Park closed the gap on Nore Johnson 5 yard run.  On the ensuing kickoff, Reading's Game VanSkaik brought it back for a 77 yard touchdown.  Rain led at the half 29-14.  The only score in the 3rd quarter was a Heard to Deshaun Mcentire pass for 54 yards.  The failed PAT made it 29-20 Reading.  In the 4th quarter a 25 yard field goal by Profitt made it 32-20 Reading.  Mcentire got his 2nd TD of the game on a 10 yard run.  Joe Hocker 2 point AT made it a 4 point game Reading.  Baker's pass to Alijah Vaught for 46 yards and a Profitt PAT  put Reading on top 39-28.  Hocker & Mcentire with jobs.  This time it was Joe who scored on 10 yard run and Deshaun who got the 2 point PAT.  Deer Park was back in the game down 39-36.  With 1:36 to go in the game Heard gave Deer Park the first lead of the game on 9 yard run.  Eric Hamilton's PAT made 43-39 Wildcats.  Reading drove deep into Deer Park territory but time ran out as the Wildcat defense held on to give Deer Park a 43-39 win.  Too many game balls to hand out in this one!

Indian Hill girls' tennis has been one of the most successful athletic programs in CHL history. So far this season, they have continued their success. Coach Gary Samuels has provided us with some information on this year's team.

Indian Hills girls varsity tennis team has been in the state finals of the State Team Championships 4 of the 5 past years.  Last year, they finished 3rd.  This year's squad is projected to match this successful run of great tennis at our school.  Currently, Indian Hill is ranked 2nd in the state in Division II despite the loss to graduation last year of two talented seniors.  Gracey Hirsch is a Penn State signee and Julia Yingling is attending Yale University.  

The team is off to a strong start with a 10-1 record as of this posting.  They defeated two top Division I schools Turpin & Mt. Notre Dame by identical 3-2 scores. The Brave's only loss was to Mason 3-2.  The Comets are currently the #1 ranked D1 team in the state.  The team played short-handed as #2 singles player Samantha Pregel was out with an injury at that time.  The Braves have won five consecutive matches since Pregel returned to the lineup. On September 4, Indian Hill overcame CHCA 3-2 to advance to the semi-finals of the OTCA District Team Tournament. Their opponent will be Oakwood.  The match will be played at Indian Hill on September 24.

This year's team includes six returning players.  The premier player is junior Hayley Hirsch who was named 1st team All Ohio in her freshman & sophomore years.  Hirsch was also last year's Enquirer City Player of the Year.  Samantha Pregel was a state singles qualifier as a sophomore and has continued to improve every year.  Also improved and returning from solid freshman seasons are Jessica August and Jessie Budde.  Both Jessica & Jessie will be keys to our success this year as they have been moved up higher in the starting lineup.  Nina Price returns for her 4th varsity season as one of the best doubles players in the state.  She was a state quarter-finalist last year.  Senior Madeline Major is back after being named 1st Team All City in doubles last year.  The team has been excited about the additions of Callie O'Dell & Jenny Zhang to the varsity.  O'Dell & Zhang will be counted on heavily throughout the season.

Indian Hill is attempting to win their 22nd straight CHL title.  With their 2 league match wins so far this season, they have won 94 league matches in a row.  Their last league loss was in October of 2003.  None of the current players were in school yet, and some weren't even born!  

Good luck to the Braves as they go for the league title and success at the singles and doubles state championships and the team championships.

Thanks to Coach Gary Samuels for the information.  Coach Samuels is in his 8th season as the Brave's varsity girls' tennis coach.
