We have had several issues come up since last week's update.  Because of the spiking of COVID 19 cases, many schools are returning to in home instruction.  As a result, some league schools have announced that they are postponing winter sports.  As of this posting, Finneytown, Indian Hill, & Reading will not resume sports till January.  Deer Park is postponing sports at least this week.  We are still working on the winter schedules.  With the changes that will have to be made, we will hold off on completing them until schools have decided what direction to take.  In all likelihood, basketball will be going to a league schedule only.
We will not start our weekly stats leaders till January.  Complete stats can be found under each sport's link.

COVID 19 has changed some winter schedules.  Be aware that contests can be postponed or cancelled at any time.

Mariemont boys' soccer team won their first ever state championship.  The Warriors defeated Youngstown Cardinal Mooney at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus 4-1 to win the Division III state title.
Mariemont got the only goal of the 1st half.  Jimmy Sauters scored with the assist going to Luke Brothers.  In the 2nd half, the Warriors scored three goals in a little over four minutes.  The first was by Brothers with an assist from Nick Comer.  Brothers scored again 40 seconds later.  Henry Buck finished off the scoring 90 seconds later.  Cardinal Mooney's only goal came late in the game. Mariemont struggled early in the post season.  In the sectional final they had to go to overtime to beat Cincinnati Country Day.  In the district final, they edged Yellow Springs 4-3. But in the last four games in the regionals and state, the Warriors have outscored their opponents 15-2.  Mariemont ended with a perfect 23-0-0 season.  You might say they were "wire to wire" champs.  They never lost a game and were #1 ranked all season in Division III.

Congratulations to Coach Erik Vanags and the Warrior players on their perfect season!

One state team champion, five teams making it to the state championship level, 15 individuals qualifying for state in three sports, and all CHL fall sports champions were crowned!  Not bad for the strangest fall sports season anyone has ever been a part of.  Back in the summer, there was some question on what the fall season would look like in Ohio high school sports.  During the summer months, schools were directed by state officials to implement COVID 19 prevention policies.  When it was time for the season to begin, athletes, coaches, administrators, & spectators started the implementing the preventive policies.  It made it stressful for all.  Events were held with few, and in some case, no spectators.  Special event restrictions for athletes, coaches, & officials were the new norm.  Most sports carried on with a normal season.  Football was the exception.  Their regular season was shortened to six games with all schools eligible for the playoffs for the first time ever since football playoffs began in 1972.  After a team was out of the playoffs, they had the option of playing additional games. All this paid off.  There was only a handful of problems with COVID 19 throughout the league.  Few league contests were postponed.  For all this, hats off to the athletes, coaches, & administrators for their extra work to make it happen.  And thanks also to the parents who helped with their support.  Here is the breakdown by sport for the fall season:
Field Hockey 
This is a non league sport with only one team from the league having a team.  Indian Hill had its best season in two decades as the Braves made it all the way to the state final four.

Boys' Golf
Indian Hill won the pre-season tournament.  Madeira & Indian Hill won the league championship tournament.  In both cases, Mariemont was right behind.  The Mustangs & Braves tied for the league title.  All three of the teams swept the top three spots in the sectional tournament. Brandon Conner (Madeira) made it to the state championship where he finished 5th.

Girls' Golf
This is the second year that girls' golf has been a league sport.  Wyoming has won the league tournament both years.  Wyoming's team plus Lainey Hurt (Mariemont) made it to the district tournament.

Girls' Tennis
Indian Hill won their 24th straight league title, an all time record for any CHL sport.  Five Braves players made it to the state championship; Brooke Arlington, Jenny Zhang, Lexi Larsen, Jessica August, & Hannah Pollock.  Indian Hill also made it to the final four of the state team championships.

Boys' Cross Country
Mariemont dominated the league championship meet with the 5th lowest point total (22 points) in CHL history.  The Warriors went on to win a district title and from the regionals qualified for state.  They finished 10th.  Ethan Henry (Madeira) qualified for state as an individual.

Girls' Cross Country
Wyoming won the league championship meet. Both Mariemont & Wyoming were Division II district champs.  Madeira was Division III district champs.  Lily Bauer (Mariemont) qualified for state as an individual.

Football
Indian Hill & Wyoming tied for the league championship.  In the playoffs, Madeira won it's first ever post season game.  Deer Park & Indian Hill also had post season wins. Mariemont won thee post season games making it to the regional semi-finals in Division V.  Wyoming went on to their 3rd straight state final four in Division IV.  The Cowboys go into the 2021 season with the longest current regular season win streak of any high school football team in Ohio (47 in a row).

Girls' Soccer
Mariemont won the league title.  The Warriors only lost for the season was in the Division III regional finals to Cincinnati Country Day.  Madeira made it to the D3 regional semi-finals.  Indian Hill made it to the D2 district finals.

Boys' Soccer
In Division II, Wyoming made it to the regional semi-finals.  Indian Hill made it to the district finals.  In Division III, Madeira made it to the district finals.  Mariemont capped off a perfect 23-0-0 season with its first ever state championship in boys' soccer.

SID note - Both Mariemont girls' & boys' soccer teams combined for a 30-1-3 record.  Warrior athletes Henry Buck & Martin Eisenhauer made it to the state championships in cross country & soccer within an 8 day period. 

So now we look forward to the winter sports season.  Our first winter update will be on November 23rd.

Wyoming lost to Van Wert in the Division IV state semi-finals 28-20.  The Cowboys were making their 3rd straight trip to the state final four.  They finished the season 10-1.  Over the last three years, Wyoming is 38-2 with their only losses coming in the state final four.  They still have the longest regular season win streak of any football team in the state. 
Congratulations to Coach Arron Hancock and his Cowboy players for another great run!
