Some excerpts from Coach Edmond's comments:

Nikki McKee – wow what a year this young woman had. This was Nikki’s break out season. She lead our league in scoring and steals. She developed an outside shot and continued to shut people down on the defensive end. Nikki is a great talent. She has developed into one of the best players in the state of Ohio. With continued work she will be one of the best to ever come out of WHS. She will break 1000 points next year and be one of the all time steal leaders at WHS. During games this year she always drew the other teams best defender, sometimes they put 2 people on her but she still got the job done. She has matured both physically and mentally and has become an all-around player.
Christine Tzeghi – this is Teeny’s second year as our team manager. She continues to do a great job for us. She is in charge of laundry and helping out with things at practice. She has become an essential part of our program.
Jenni Marck – Jenni was our first guard off the bench this season. Jenni is a really good defender. She often was asked to defend the other teams best guard and she always did a great job. She has good feet and quick hands and was able help us a lot on our press. She was able to get lots of defensive touches which caused steals and turnovers. Jenni also has a nice outside shot and when she steps into her shot she is really able to knock it down. Jenni was a good senior leader for us this year.
Alexa Levick- boy did we miss Alexa this year. We knew going in that we were taking about 18 points a game out. But that was not the hardest part of Alexa to replace. Alexa is a natural leader. She leads by example. She was always the first one to dive on the floor for a loose ball, she was a great rebounder, she just has a presence about her that is impossible to duplicate. We missed her so much. I admire Alexa’s dedication to our team. Even though she knew she was not going to play a single game this season she came to every practice and game. She was there every day like a true unselfish leader is. She gave more of herself this season than I thought possible. She was our leader on the sideline.
Jane Streeter- Jane has had a great career at Wyoming High School. Jane has been a steady and consistent player for our basketball program for the last 4 years. Jane always defends the other teams best post player. She typically shuts them down. She is a good defensive rebounder and this year added offensive scorer to her game. She hit some very timely shots this year which helped us big time. Because Jane picked it up on the offensive end of the floor she made our team more difficult to defend. Jane also was a great leader for us on the floor this year. She showed her teammates what it means to play hard and to give 110% all the time. Jane is really going to be hard to replace next year. She has helped our team to be a top 10 team in the city consistently for the last 3 years and her presence on the floor is going to be missed very very much.

Sudy Graham – Sudy had a great senior year and career at Wyoming High School. Sudy improved greatly this year. Sudy is a delight to coach. She works hard and is very interested in winning. Sudy improved both offensively and defensively this year. She was much stronger going to the basket and finishing around the rim and she developed a nice outside shot. Defensively she worked hard to box out and rebound. She was good at defending on the perimeter and worked hard on her help defense. She developed into a total player. She was also a great captain. She kept her teammates on task and focused. She was the captain on the floor reminding them what defense we were in and encouraging them to work hard. Sudy is going to be missed next year not just because of her floor presence but because of they type of person she is.

Somewhat slow issue for Wyoming sports (as we are between seasons).  Spring sports preview issues begin April 7 with baseball.

There is a picture of the Trollz.  There is also a picture of Connor Wetzel, Wyoming '07, who plays basketball for Christian Brothers University in Memphis.  A group of their players who hail from Cincinnati are pictured showing off their Division II Elite Eight rings.

Does anyone have contact information for Connor?  If so, e-mail me at wyoroundup@gmail.com and I'll try to get an interview with him.  Thanks.

Issue is here.


Varsity Tennis, MS Tennis and Varsity/JV Baseball all canceled today. Lacrosse is still on as scheduled for today, Thursday.

For the record, we'll post cancellations as soon as we get them but can't guarantee that it will be before the blog e-mail goes out.  On iffy days it's probably worth popping open the blog to see if there was a late notification, such as today's.

Cincinnati Hills League All-Sports Trophy

For those who weren't at the Winter Sports Awards last night.

The CHL has an All-Sports Trophy.  This is determined by assigning points by final standings in each sport - first place gets you nine points, second is seven, third six, and on down to 1 for eighth (assuming all eight schools partipate in that sport).
The trophy was established in 2000.  Here are the winners by year:

2000 - Indian Hill
2001 - Wyoming
2002 - Wyoming
2003 - Wyoming
2004 - Wyoming
2005 - Wyoming
2006 - Wyoming
2007 - Wyoming
2008 - Wyoming
2009 - Wyoming

At the end of the fall season, we held a nine point lead over Indian Hill.  The winter teams extended that lead by 2.5 points, giving us an 11.5 point lead going into the spring.  Go Cowboys!

Full point listing here.


Wyoming Ultimate Frisbee

The Wyoming Ultimate frisbee team is entering its 11th season in the Cincinnati Youth Ultimate League.  This co-ed team, which is a club sport (not an official varsity school sport), plays in the Cincinnati Ultimate High School league, which now includes almost 20 schools.

George White has coached the team since its inception and three other Wyoming residents help with the coaching duties.  Three of the coaches have gone through the national coaching accreditation process, while the fourth, Phil Roebuck, was a player at the high school who went on to captain the Ultimate team at Harvard.

Ultimate is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, combining the speed and agility of soccer with the hand-eye coordination of basketball and football. Teams of seven players seek to advance the disc up a soccer-sized field by passing and catching the disc; players may not run with the disc, but can only advance it by passing to a teammate. Goals are scored by catching the disc in the end zone. It is a non-contact sport, with constant action, as an incomplete or intercepted pass results in the defense immediately becoming the offense, with no stoppage in play. As a result, the sport also requires tremendous endurance.

Four unique aspects of the high school Ultimate team that make it a great experience:

1. The team is co-ed; each team must have five boys and two girls on the field at all times.
2. This year, for the first time, 8th graders who turn 14 by the summer may play on the high school team THIS spring, as 8th graders.
3. The cost is minimal—one $30 fee covers all player costs, and includes a free disc, team shirt, and national Ultimate Players Association (UPA) membership for every player; no other equipment required!
4. Ultimate is guided by one paramount rule--The Spirit of the Game—which in practice means players must call their own fouls and resolve any conflicts on the field, with no input from coaches or referees (there are no referees!). Players learn to value honesty and character on the field.

8th through 12th graders who may want to play on the team this spring, and/or want to learn more about the team and the Cincinnati High School Ultimate league, are welcome to come to a practice any Tuesday at Oak Park from 3:30 to 5:00.  Coach White also welcomes anyone with questions or who would like further information to contact him at gwhite15@cinci.rr.com or call him at 295-7555.  He said he is always looking for new players.

Games are Sunday afternoons from 3-5 at Sharon Woods Park, every Sunday (except Easter) through May 2, with a season ending tournament on Saturday, May 8. The Ohio state Ultimate championship tournament is May 22-23.

More information can be found here.

So come and get these cherished keepsakes.  Be done with Grandma's Christmas/Hanukkah shopping early!

Academic pursuits

Upon losing one of his ballplayers due to academic ineligibility when his latest report card reflected four F's and one D, longtime Texas A&M basketball coach Shelby Metcalf called the young man aside and remarked: "Son, it looks like you're spending too much time on one subject."


Higher Math

I can't find this on the internet anywhere but Dave Dierker sent it to me and it's hard to believe he's funny enough to make this up on his own:

When someone asked Takeo Spikes, a Bengals linebacker at the time, if he liked having a bye the first week of the season, he said sure, since no matter what they would still have a .500 record.  You know 0-0.  Same number of wins and losses. 

According to his Wikipedia entry, Takeo majored in liberal arts at Auburn.  Which, you know, explains a lot.


Hockey wrap-up

The Wyoming-Walnut Hills-Princeton hockey team (not a school team, see full explanation here) wrapped up its season a couple of weekends ago.

The team ended the season with a record of 18-15-4.  Full season results here (you might have to use the drop-down boxes along the top - choose "Fall/Winter 2009-2010", "CAHA High School League", and "HS5-Walnut Hills-Wyoming-Prin").

According to their web page, Wyoming players were 1, 3 and 4 in scoring - Brian Spitzig was first with 39 points (21 goals, 18 assists), Andrew Dunbar was third with 30 (19 goals, 11 assists) and James Edwards was fourth with 28 points (13 goals and 15 assists). 

Between the two goalies who played an appreciable amount of time, Joseph Dulemba led in both save percentage (88.7% vs. 80.9%) and in Goals Againtst Average (3.64 vs. 5.30).  Full goalie stats here.

Nikki was previously selected as Player of the Year for District 16 and First Team All-District.

A message from the BASH-Master

The following message is from Bash-Master (and Boosters Vice President) Jim Leish:

Thanks to all of those that came out and made the BOOSTER BASH a successful event again this year. Through your support and participation we were once again able to have some FUN and raise some FUNds!

Again thanks!

Tony Davis named District 16 Division II first team

As I noted the other day, I don't understand everything about what makes a district.

However, I do know what makes a District 16 Division II first teamer - Wyoming's own Tony Davis. 

For his junior year, Tony averaged 15.4 points per game while shooting 54.5% from the field.  In addition, he grabbed 12.3 rebounds, and had 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game.  That's not a typo - you can see it all here.

Congratulations Tony.


Neal Williams to wrestle in SWOWCA All-Star Meet

Senior Neal Williams will wrestle tonight in the Southwest Ohio Wrestling Coches Association Cincinnati area All-Star meet.

The sixth annual meet will be held at 6:30 PM at Sycamore HIgh School.


Nikki McKee District 16 Player of the Year

Now I know that I posted the other day about Nikki McKee making first team all-district.  However, the term "district" apparently has more than one meaning.  You know, like for politicians (from both sides of the aisle - don't get me started) "ethical behavior" means anything short of being caught red-handed committing some crime but for the rest of us it means something else?  Well, there's the district from the other day AND there's District 16.  So for District 16, the Division II player of the year is.....(you read the headline didn't you?):

Nikki McKee

Nikki averaged 18.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.7 steals and 2.0 assists per game this year as a junior.

Congratulations to Nikki who of course is on the first team, I guess by definition.

On the second team are Sudy Graham and Michelle Jolson

Sudy averaged 7.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 steal per game in this, her senior season.  She also shot a stellar 55.4% from the field

Michelle, just a sophomore, averaged 8.4 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 rebounds per game.

Dave Loper, Wyoming resident and Ursuline Head Coach, was named Division I Coach of the Year.

(Thanks to Coach Edmonds for the above information.)

Finally, Sudy will be playing in the Senior All-Star Game at St. Bernard High School on Wednesday, March 24th at 6 PM.  Also, Nikki will be presented the player of the year award at this game.  Come on out and support these fine hoopsters.

(Thanks to Julie Jolson for this info.)

From the Roundup:

Congratulations on a great season and continued good luck in building the program.
