Boys basketball downs Mariemont

The boys basketball team won at Mariemont by a score of 45-43 last night, despite shooting just 28% from the field.  The win improves the Cowboys to 8-5 overall and 6-3 in the league.  That puts them in a 2 way tie for 3rd with Reading, behind Indian Hill (9-0) and Madeira (7-2).

The Cowboys took a 30-22 lead into the fourth quarter and hung on as Mariemont scored 21 in fourth, nearly half of their total points.

Eric Price led the way last night with a symmetrical 12 points, 6 blocks and 12 rebounds.  Tony Davis contributed 10 rebounds and seven points, and Jacob Allsop had a very strong all around game with 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and eight points.

Next up: at CHL 2nd place Madeira, Freshmen at 4:30, JV at 6 and Varsity at 7:30.  The Varsity will be trying to avenge a 45-42 loss at Wyoming in the third game of the season.


Cameron Merton wins CHL boys diving, Katie Horn 3rd third in girls

In the CHL diving championships held last night at Mariemont, Cameron Merton took the boys crown with a total of 223.65, more than 5 points ahead of the second place finisher.  The Cowboys were also ably represented by Andrew Wolf who took 6th, David Weinrich in 7th and Andrew Tamenko who finished 8th.

On the girls side, Katie Horn took 3rd, and was just 1.5 points back of the 2nd place finisher.  Brett Miller took 5th for the Cowboys.

I have pictures, but the computer I use for my photos is displaying what is apparently known as the "Blue Screen of Death" so it may be a little while before I can post those.

Next up: CHL swimming championships tonight at Powell-Crosley.

Girls basketball mangles Mariemont

The girls basketball team improved its record to 11-3, 8-2 in the CHL, with a 54-25 win over Mariemont at home last night.  Nikki McKee again led the way for the Cowboys with 23 points, 21 of which came in the first half.  More impressive still was that she went 10-11 from the field, 7-7 inside the arc and 3-4 beyond it.  She also had six rebounds and five steals. 

Joining her in double figures were sophomores Michelle Jolson and Emily Fraik, each chipping in 10 points.  Jane Streeter was Ms. Windex, grabbing 10 rebounds.

Next up: Monday at home vs. Loveland - JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30

Boys basketball upsets Reading

The boys basketball team went into Wednesday night's game ranked #14 in the Enquirer Coaches poll for Divisions II-IV.  They were taking on the #9 ranked Reading Blue Devils.  In a very quick game (the Roundup got there late and almost missed the whole thing), the Cowboys prevailed 44-40.  The win moves the Cowboys into a third place tie with Reading at 5-3 in the league.  Overall it drops Reading to 9-4 and improves Wyoming to 7-5.

Reading took a 34-29 lead into the fourth quarter but the Cowboys outscored them 15-6 in the final period to garner the victory.  Tony Davis scored 10 of those 15 points to pave the way.  He totalled 25 for the night in addition to snagging 10 rebounds.  (Apparently he is over the flu.)  He and Jacob Allsop were each 2-2 from the free throw line in the last minute to preserve the win.  Jacob had 8 points on the night, with Eric Price chipping in 9 and Evan Aleshire (back in action from a concussion) contributed a pair.  Interestingly, over half of Reading's points came on threes.  They made 7, accounting for 21 of their 40 points.  Wyoming did not record a three-pointer.

Next up: Saturay at Mariemont - Freshman at 4:30, JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30

Girls basketball downs Reading

The girls basketball team won at Reading on Tuesday night 70-26.  The game was never close with the Cowboys jumping out to a 24-6 lead at the end of the first quarter and a 44-14 halftime margin.

The win improves their record to 10-3, 7-2 in the CHL.

Nikki McKee led the scoring with 22.  She also had 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals.  Also coming up big were Michelle Jolson and Hailee Schlager, who each scored 12 including 2 three pointers a piece.  Rounding out the scoring were Emily Fraik with 10, Jane Streeter with 8, and Jenni Marck, Clara Rodrigue, and Shannon O'Hara, each with a deuce.  Emily led the team with 10 rebounds.

Next up:  Mariemont at home tomorrow night - JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30.


Boys bowling knocks down Norwood

The boys bowling team took advantage of new lanes and fresh oil at Stones Lanes and defeated Norwood by 434 pins this afternoon with Nick Burns rolling a 200 followed by Joe Meier with a 194, plus Josh Hite and Chris Belleman each with a 190. The boys team is now 10-5 with 5 games remaining. 

Next up: Summit on Thursday at Brentwood lanes.

Football recruiting videos

There's probably a real/better name for them, but I'm referring to the videos that we mentioned yesterday with Jibreel Black and a week or so ago with Jonathan Tighe.  You can go to ScoutingOhio.com and see any of the Wyoming players' videos.

Along the right side, under "Quick Search" are a series of search possibilities.  Type "Wyoming" in under School and you'll be taken to about 25 videos.

Eric Price, Tony Davis offered scholarships by Toledo

Wyoming juniors Eric Price and Tony Davis have received football scholarship offers from the University of Toledo, according to head Coach Bernie Barre.  Tony is a 6-4, 250 pound defensive end and Eric is a 6-5, 220 pound linebacker/defensive end.

Assuming Tony is over the flu, you can see both of them tonight in the Wyoming-Reading basketball game at home at 7:30.

Happy Australia Day

Australia Day is on January 26 and commemorates the establishment of the first settlement at Port Jackson, now part of Sydney, in 1788. It is an opportunity for Australians to come together to celebrate their country and culture. There are reflections on the achievements of the nation and explorations of way to make the country even better in the future.

What about Aussies and sport?  From Australia.com:

It's no secret that Australians are sports mad. With more than 120 national and thousands of local, regional and state sporting organisations, it's estimated that six-and-a-half million people in Australia are registered sport participants. Not bad from a population of just over 21 million! The number one watched sport in Australia is Australian Rules Football (AFL) with its high kicks and balletic leaps, while the brute force and tackling tactics of National Rugby League (NRL) reign supreme in New South Wales and Queensland. Australia’s national Rugby Union team, the Wallabies play on the international circuit and in the Bledisloe Cup, part of a Tri Nations tournament with South Africa. Australia is a nation of swimmers and Olympic medals attest to our performance in the pool. All summer we watch the Australian cricket team in their whites and in January, we flick channels to see the tennis Australian Open. Held in Melbourne, this attracts more people to Australia than any other sporting event. Football is a growth sport, we draw world-class surfers for the Bells Beach Surf Classic and on Boxing Day crowds gather to watch the boats sail out of Sydney Harbour for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. On the first Tuesday in November, the nation stops for the famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup while and in March rev heads converge in Melbourne for the Formula One Grand Prix. The list of sports we love goes on, and if in doubt about the rules just ask a passionate punter.

Girls basketball loses thriller to Indian Hill

You missed a great game and some fireworks if you weren't at the girls basketball game at Indian Hill yesterday.  Our girls lost, 61-51, but made a great comeback that was overshadowed to a certain extent by some questionable officiating.

Here's the Enquirer story:


One comment on that article.  Jeff Wallner writes: "Bell was fouled and hit the first three throw. But, Wyoming head coach Angie Edmonds, arguing that Bell wasn't the proper free-throw shooter, was assessed a technical.  The officials determined Edmonds was correct, but the technical foul stood."  But Bell wasn't fouled.  That's the whole point.  There was a foul, possibly the one called but possibly a moving pick by Indian Hill instead.  Leaving that aside, it is at least sloppy writing.  And come on, Coach Edmonds is an English teacher.  If you're going to write about her, bring your A game.  (And what's with the comma after "But"?)

The play with Sudy Graham at the end of the game caused quite a brouhaha (love that word - not that's writing).  Booster president Tom Horn offered the following obervation after the game:

"Sudy Graham, who provides tremendous senior leadership on the court and plays as hard or harder than anyone on the basketball floor, was unjustly called for that "flagrant foul" with 1.5 seconds to go in the game, and ejected from the game. Sudy continued to battle for a loose ball and happened to get tied up with the Indian Hill coach's daughter, who fell to the floor. This was nothing more than two players going for the ball and deciding who has possession.  The entire Wyoming basketball team, while playing on Indian Hill's home court, continued to grind it out with Indian Hill and pull within a two possession game, only to be rewarded for playing extremely hard to the final second of an intense game with a flagrant foul. This was a good basketball game that ended on a sour note for all the loyal Wyoming fans that attended."

The Roundup would add the comment that while Coach Edmonds received her first technical for "stomping her foot" (I was there, I heard the ref say it), even though the refs eventually acknowledged she was right, the Indian Hill coach, after the play with 1.5 seconds to play, came out on the court, well beyond the half court line, and the refs did nothing.  I won't say we got homered or it was sexism, but I will say it was inconsistent.

I want to make sure that we end on the right note.  The real story was that the girls, led by Nikki McKee, played a great game, didn't give up after being down big, and mounted a great comeback.  As the paper said, Nikki led the scoring with 26.  Sudy chipped in a season high 17.

Next up: Tuesday at Reading - JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30

Undermanned boys basketball team loses to Indian Hill

It's tough to go into the league leader's gym and win.  It's even tougher when 3 of your 5 starters are out.

That's the challenge the boys basketball team faced last night at Indian Hill.  As previously mentioned here, Kyle Seyfried is out for an extended period of time with mono.  In addition, Evan Aleshire was out last night with a concussion and Tony Davis, who leads the team in both scoring and rebounding, was out with the flu.

The team could not overcome those obstacles and lost to Indian Hill 56-34.  Jacob Allsop led the scoring with 15.

Next up: Home vs. Reading on Wednesday night.  No freshman game, JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30.

Girls hoops downs Woodward

The girls basketball team beat Woodward Thursday night at Wyoming 56-28. 

Nikki McKee led the Cowboys in scoring with 23, followed by Emily Fraik with 10, Sudy Graham with 8 and Jane Streeter with 7. 

The win improves the girls to 9-2 on the season.

Next up: Today at 1:30 at Indian Hill (no JV game).


Something I didn't know about our coaches and I bet you didn't either

Peter Tighe sent me this link to his son Jonathan's highlight tape, which was put together by Coach Keith Jordan.

His comment, "Thought you might like to see what he and the other coaches do for their players."

Pretty cool.


Big Weekend for WHS Sports

Come out and support the Cowboys this weekend.  Four out of our five sports have big events this weekend.

It starts with boys basketball tonight.  The boys travel to Indian Hill (6855 Drake Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45243) to take on the league leading (8-2, 6-0) Braves at 7:30 PM.  (Freshman play at 4:30, JV at 6).

The Wrestlers hold their annual Duals meet Saturday beginning at 10 AM in the gym.  Nine schools plus the Cowboys will be competing.

Then it's back to Indian Hill for the girls basketball team's game against the Braves.  Indian Hill's girls are also leading the CHL with a 7-0 league mark, but have an identical 9-2 overall record with our girls.  IH won the first game at our place.  Be there at 1:30 Saturday afternoon to see if we can even the series.  (No JV game.)

Finally, the swim and dive teams have a tri-meet at 3:30 PM at the Powell-Crosley YMCA against Indian Hill and Alter.  Seniors will be recognized during the meet.

Hope to see you at one or more of the events!

Boys basketball tames Taylor

The Wyoming boys basketball team overcame a slow first quarter and beat Taylor 34-29 in a low scoring affair at Taylor on Saturday night. 

Taylor jumped out to a 12-6 first quarter lead and still led 21-19 at the end of three.  But the Cowboys scored 15 of their 34 points on the night in the fourth to secure the victoy and move their overall record to 5-4, 4-2 in the CHL.

Tony Davis again led the scoring with 11, followed by Jacob Allsop with 7, Evan Aleshire with 6 and 5 each from Jonathan Tighe and Chris Campbell.

Tony dominated the boards, grabbing 15 rebounds.

Bowling had busy week

It was a busy week for the boys and girls bowling teams.  Monday the boys were unable to rally to beat the St Xaxier bombers but took out their frustrations on Summit CCD with an 800 point difference.

On Thursday, the boys lost a close match to one of the top ranked teams in the city, Colerain, by only 17 pins.  This is the best match the boys have shot in the history of the program rolling a 2,780 even with the short illness of starter Josh Hite.

On Friday the boys trounced Clark with both Brett Callaghan and Jack Meier bowling varsity due to illness on the team and doing a great job.

The girls team continues to rapidly improve and won their first match on Friday. Powerhouse Allix Hillenbrand continues to lead the girls team with a high score of 180, but Michelle Whaley is closing in fast with a 193 game. The girls also set a school record on Friday with a 221 baker game.  (Don't know what a baker game is?  You're not keeping up with the blog.)

On Monday the Cowboys go to the Baker Bash Tourney in Beavercreek and Tuesday face a top ranked Fairfield team.

Girls basketball defeats Finneytown

The girls basketball team defeated the Finneytown Wildcats last night 44-30 at Finneytown.

The Wildcats came into the game at 8-2 and ranked 11th in the Enquirer's coaches poll vs. Wyoming's #8 ranking.  The game didn't seem that competitive though.  The Cowboys built up a 26-16 halftime lead.  Finneytown seemed to make a little push early in the third quarter but a couple of late threes by Hailee Schlager and Nikki McKee actually extended the lead from halftime before the quarter was over.

Nikki and Hailee led the scoring.  Nikki put in 16 and Hailee added 11, followed by Sudy Graham with 7, Jane Streeter and Michelle Jolson with four each, and Clara Rodrigue with a deuce.

The following players are in the top 5 in the CHL for their respective category:
Nikki McKee - scoring - #2 - 15.9 ppg, steals - #1 - 5.3 spg
Michelle Jolson - assists - #4 - 3.0 apg
Sudy Graham - shooting percentage - #2 - 54.1%
Emily Fraik - blocks - #4 - 1.1 bpg

Boxing trivia

There have been great fighters in both earlier and later times. Mike Tyson's one-round knockouts electrified many boxing fans but Joe Louis still holds the record for one-round knockouts in heavyweight championship fights.

Tony Davis named to ScoutingOhio.com All-Ohio Junior Team

Tony Davis has been named to the ScoutingOhio.com All-Ohio Junior Team.  The article describes these players as those who will graduate in 2011 who are, "the tops at their position in regards to college potential and their likeliness to play major Division I college football."

Tony is making his mark on the hardwood as well.  He is fifth in the CHL in scoring with a 16.1 average, 1st in rebounds with 12.6 per game, and 3rd in blocks with 1.9.  (Wyoming's Eric Price leads the league in blocks with 3.0 per game).

Boys hoops team pummels Deer Park 57-32

The boys basketball team beat Deer Park last night 57-32, at Deer Park.  They are now 3-4 on the season.

The Cowboys were led on the offensive side once again by Tony Davis, who had 13 points.  Joining him in double figures were Evan Aleshire and Chris Campbell, who each added 10.

Bad news for the team - it looks like Kyle Seyfried may miss most of the rest of the season with mono.  We'll keep you updated if we hear any more on this.

Next up: Home against Finneytown next Wednesday (Freshman at 4:30, JV at 6, Varsity at 7:30)
