Catching up

The long weekend has given me time to catch up on the last photo galleries from this season.

The first are the long lost photos from the CHL swimming championships.  (My hard drive crashed after that which is why they are so long in coming.)  Missy Horn was kind enough to help me ID some of the swimmers so I've left her signs in the gallery.

The second is the JV girls' lacrosse game vs. Dayton.

Girls' lacrosse awards

Congratulations to the girls' lacrosse team award winners, who were recognized at the Spring Sports Awards on Tuesday:

(All quotes from Varsity Head Coach Anne Murphy)

Junior Varsity

Most Improved - Brooke Duncan and Ali Vamosi
Not only did these girls begin playing this year and show an aptitude for the sport, but they took on additional challenges, with Brooke learning to play center and Ali jumping in goal for us.

Most Improved - Allee Martin

She stepped up not only her skills but her dedication to the team, being there for JV home games to help set up before hand, and offering to play wherever we needed her on the field - even when she wasn't so sure it was where she wanted to be.
Most Goals - Laura Cress
Laura Cress was our top goal scorer with 31 goals this season! (Deserving honorable mention is Julie King who was just below Laura with 30 goals! I'm sure that will be a rivalry for all years they are playing together!)
Highest Save % - Maddie Schneider

Maddie Schneider had our highest single game save percentage in goal with a save rate 64%!  She is one of our 3 seniors this season - all of them goalies!  We will miss Maddie, Arris and Yashira for their dedication on the field and for the joy and positive spirit they show wherever they go.

Wyoming wins CHL All Sports Trophy

For the 10th consecutive year, Wyoming has won the CHL All-Sports Trophy. The final margin was 11.5 points over second place Indian Hill. In fact, we were first or tied for first in each of the three seasons, winning fall and winter and tying Indian Hill for first in the spring.

The CHL All-Sports Trophy 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 participate 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
2010 - Wyoming

Congratulations to all of our athletes for contributing to this achievement.

Boys' lacrosse season ends, part II

A game and season wrap-up from our lacrosse stringer:
The number of goals scored in the Wyoming verses Turpin second round playoff game showing up in the stat book came up in pairs of three, two, one. James Edwards and Austin Hughes had three goals apiece. Daniel Liesh and Harry Meisner had two goals apiece. The final pair was Travis Courtney and David Zanoni with one goal apiece. To add to his great effort and top scoring in the game, James Edwards demonstrated unselfish senior leadership with four assists while also racking up five loose balls controlled. Other assists in the game came from Tyler Hughes, Austin Hughes, and Will Irwin. Tyler Cornelius handled the majority of the face-offs for the Cowboys, winning twelve possessions throughout the game. Cornelius also had the highest ground balls controlled with nine. Adding to the ability to keep the ball off the ground and in the possession of the Cowboys, Senior John Colton had seven grounds balls and led the defensive team as Michael Sagan made twelve goalie saves during the game. While the outcome of the game was not desirable for the Cowboys, it was nevertheless a great game. Best of luck to the Turpin Spartans in the rest of the playoffs.

Wyoming Boys Lacrosse Coaches Keith Hughes and Barry Porter are going to miss the graduating seniors next year. James Edwards #3, Matt Fisher #16, Tyler Hughes #22, John Colton #33, Harry Meisner #49, Daniel Leish #5, Matt Ames #10, Nik Tamanko #25, Will Irwin #23, and Josh Benner Team Manager have added great value to the team and provided excellent leadership throughout this season.

A Great Season:

The Wyoming High School Boys Lacrosse season ended Saturday with eight wins and six losses in the regular season. The Team made it to the second round playoff game where they lost in the first period of overtime. Coaches Keith Hughes and Barry Porter were proud of the growth of the team over the season and are looking forward to next season. The Cowboys have several returning players with great stick skills and have matured throughout this season as well as a bunch of players coming up to the High School level next season. As one of the fastest growing sports in America, Lacrosse has taken hold in the Wyoming Community at all ages for boys and girls. Just last weekend Wyoming hosted a game against Springboro at Lewis Stadium for second graders! It was awesome to see so many young players picking up a stick and being coached by knowledgeable and dedicated coaches. For boys and girls interested in playing the game of lacrosse during the off-season, there are numerous opportunities to play at the club level and indoor leagues in the summer, fall, and winter months.
As a recap of the Wyoming High School Boys Lacrosse season, sixteen games were played including the playoff games for a record of nine wins and seven losses. Goalie Michael Sagan had a total of one-hundred and forty-four goalie saves in fourteen games as the Cowboys goalie. The three starting attackmen Austin Hughes, Tyler Hughes, and Daniel Leish had the highest goals scored with an impressive fifty-two, thirty-seven, and thirty-one respectively. Mid-fielder Tyler Cornelius scored twenty-three goals in the season. James Edwards and Austin Hughes led the team in assists with twenty-three apiece. Daniel Leish had sixteen assists with Harry Meisner and Tyler Hughes having fifteen assists apiece. For the loose balls controlled or ground balls Tyler Cornelius had sixty-nine with Harry Meisner and Nick Kamphaus racking up sixty-one ground balls apiece. Defenseman (long pole) John Colton led the defensive end with fifty-eight loose balls controlled.  For for face-offs - Tyler Cornelius had 72, Nick Kamphaus 44, and Corbin Guggenheim 23.
As a whole on the season the Cowboys had one hundred and ninety-nine goals, one hundred and thirty-four assists, six hundred and eighteen loose balls controlled, and one hundred and seventy goalie saves. Great season Cowboys, looking forward to next year.

Boys' lacrosse loses 2nd round playoff game in OT

From our lax-man in the field:
The Wyoming Boys Lacrosse Team took the field at Anderson High School on Saturday, May 22nd to play a second round playoff game. The opponent was the Turpin Spartans who beat the Cowboys in the first game of the season, however today's game was much different. In the first period the Spartans came out shooting and scored four unanswered goals to take the lead. In the second period the Cowboys scored five goals and the Spartans three for a half-time score of Wyoming 5 - Spartans 7. With a never quit determination the Cowboys scored four goals in the third period and defensively held the Spartans to one goal ending the period Wyoming 9 - Spartans 8. The fourth period was a nail-biter as the Spartans scored within three minutes to tie Wyoming and within another two minutes scored again to take the lead. At the six minute mark Wyoming tied the game and Turpin immediately answered to go back up by one. With two minutes and sixteen seconds left in the game Wyoming tied the game and forty-five seconds later scored another goal to take the lead. With 15 seconds left on the clock and the Cowboys leading by one point, the Spartans scored, tying the game and sending it into overtime. In overtime, Turpin won the faceoff, called a timeout and formulated a play. When the whistle blew the Spartans executed flawlessly to win the game. Fans on both sides got their money’s worth and really turned out to cheer on their teams.

Congratulations to the Wyoming Boys Lacrosse Team on a winning season and for taking the tournament to the second round playoffs in style. These young men give great effort in the classroom and conduct themselves in a manner that leads to a positive image of their team, the Wyoming High School, and their families. They prepared themselves to win and honored the game in what has been an outstanding season.

I would like to endorse the fact that this was a great and exciting game.  You're missing out if you're not checking out some lacrosse games.  Watching Tyler Hughes flatten the other team's goalie was easily worth the $6 all by itself.

Congratulations to the coaches and players on a great season.  Best of luck and thanks for the memories to seniors: #3 James Edwards, #5 Daniel Leish, #10 Matt Ames, #16 Matt Fischer, #22 Tyler Hughes, #23 Will Irwin, #25 Nik Tamanko, #33 John Colton and #49 Harry Meisner.

I'd like to send a big thanks to our lacrosse stringer, who I believe wants to remain anonymous.  Great job Kevin Cornelius!

Boys' lax wins first round playoff game

From our indispensable lax reporter:
This evening the Wyoming Boys' Lacrosse Team played its first playoff game, against Miami Valley. Within the first 30 seconds of the game the Cowboys won the faceoff and moved the ball quickly and effectively down the field for a goal. Good passing and stick skills racked up an additional seven goals in the first period which was answered by Miami Valley with one goal. By the end of the first half Wyoming led Miami Valley fourteen to one. The officials of the game required a running clock for the second half as the Cowboys added an additional six goals. Miami added one more goal in the fourth period for a final score of Wyoming 20 – Miami Valley 2.

Austin Hughes led the team with four assists and five goals. David Zanoni and Tyler Hughes had three assists a piece, showing the amount of selfless play among the Cowboys. Tyler Cornelius scored four goals and Will Irwin scored three. James Edwards, Tyler Hughes, David Zanoni, and Harry Meisner each scored two goals a piece. In the loose balls controlled department, Tyler Cornelius led with six, John Colton and Harry Meisner controlled four a piece, and James Edwards, Travis Courtney, Will Irwin, Harrison Wood, and Josh Sagan all picked up three ground balls each. In the fourth period Jack McCaslin took the two first face offs of his career, winning both and batting a thousand for the year. Andrew Tamanko and Jeremy Guttman provided some aggressive defense in the fourth period sucking up two ground balls each and hitting the Miami offense with solid checks. 

Thanks to all the fans that came out tonight, especially the #3 fans who certainly cheered the loudest. The next playoff game is scheduled for Saturday against Turpin at Turpin at 1 PM. It will certainly be an action packed game as always as the Cowboys take the road to do battle on another’s field of play.
****  Note that Saturday's 1 PM game time is a change from what was previously posted.  ****

The boys are in 7th place after day one.

Girls' district track results

Assuming I'm reading things correctly, the following girls qualified for finals at the Division II District track meet being held at New Richmond.

Nikki McKee - 6th place - 100 Meter Dash - 13.73
Michelle Jolson - 6th place - 400 Meter Dash - 63.55
Sammy Schwartz - 2nd place - 800 Meter Run - 2:29.21

The following is a final (again, if I'm reading this correctly):
Sammy Schwartz, Tess Thorensen, Emily Stites, Tabby Waxler - 2nd place - 4 x 800 - 10:21.48

By virture of the 4 x 8 being the only girls' event that is final, the girls are in, say it with me, 2nd place.

No field event results were posted, so I'm assuming they have not yet started.

Varsity boys' lacrosse salutes Richard Beck, downs Lebanon

From our lacrosse stringer:
On three.... one, two, three "Beck". All of the Wyoming Cowboys lacrosse players wore either the initials R. B. or the number 32 tonight to honor the life of Richard Beck who was killed this past weekend in a car accident. Rich played goalie for the Cowboys last season and wore number 32. He will be missed.

The Cowboys came out focused and played with intensity throughout the entire game, winning over the Lebanon Warriors 16 to 5. In the first period Wyoming racked up six goals and Cowboy goalie Michael Sagan shut out the Warriors. In the second period the Cowboys scored three more goals and Lebanon answered with one goal giving a half time score of 9 to 1. The third period was the hardest fought with Wyoming scoring five goals to Lebanon's four. The last period of the game allowed the Cowboys to score two additional unanswered goals giving a final score of 16 to 5.

At the conclusion of the game, the Cowboys huddled with sticks raised high … one, two, three – “Beck”. Rest in peace Rich.

The Cowboys kept the balls up off the ground accumulating a total of fifty-one loose balls controlled during the course of the game. Defensemen Matt Fisher, John Colton, and Tommy Campbell contributed to a large majority of the ground balls, with middies Harry Meisner, Travis Courtney, Tyler Cornelius, and Nick Kamphaus sweeping up what was left over. Attackmen Austin Hughes scored seven goals to lead the Cowboys victory with the two Tyler's (Cornelius and Hughes) scoring three goals each. David Zanoni started at attack for Daniel Leish who was under the weather and scored two goals and had one assist. Harry Meisner led the team in assists and also scored a goal.

While it was a little overcast the night was perfect for lacrosse. This week starts the playoff games for the Cowboys. This Thursday evening Wyoming will host Miami Valley at Lewis Stadium. The game starts at 6:30 PM. Also scheduled is a game against Turpin at Turpin on Saturday at 3:00 PM. This team has had an outstanding season ... come out and cheer on the Cowboys in the playoffs.

Girls' lacrosse loses playoff game

The girls' lacrosse team lost on Monday night, thus ending its season.

From Coach Anne Murphy:
Tonight's game was a loss, but with only 15 feeling up to coming after this last weekend's tragedy, that's to be expected. Bishop Hartley was very respectful, and gave a moment of silence for Richard before the game. Their girls also came up and gave personal condolences to our girls before we started.

Final score was 3-14 with our goals scored by Laura Cress (2) and Stephanie Lohman (1).

Kings wins at the wire over boys' lacrosse

The latest report on the lacrosse team:
The Kings Boys Lacrosse team traveled to Wyoming High School on Wednesday to battle the Cowboys in what was a down to the wire win for Kings. Throughout the game the score ebbed and flowed until the end of the third period when the Knights had taken a commanding lead of 11 to 7. In the fourth period Wyoming scored the first goal at 11:36 and Kings answered at 10:30 making the score Kings 12 and Wyoming 8. Over the next ten minutes the Cowboys scored four unanswered goals tying the game 12 to 12 with one minute and ten seconds remaining. Thinking the game could go into overtime with fifty-eight seconds left in the game Kings scored a goal taking the lead by one point. Twenty-two seconds later and thirty-six seconds left in the game, Tyler Hughes scored and tied the game back up 13 all. Amazingly, with nineteen seconds left, Kings scored another goal taking the lead. During the next nineteen seconds Kings gained possession of the face off and the Cowboys battled to push the ball out of bounds on the side line. With six seconds left the Cowboys made a great attempt to get the ball to an open attackmen near the crease but the pass was not completed turning the ball over to Kings with one second left in the game. It was a great game with excellent sportsmanship on both sides.
The Roundup would like to encourage everyone to come out for the team's last home game this Tuesday vs. Lebanon.  The sport is really fun to watch and our team plays hard and represents the school well.  Here's the primer if you want to bone up a little on the rules first.

Boys lacrosse bombs St. X

Last night's report from our lacrosse man in the field: 
The Wyoming Cowboys traveled to St. Xavier's home field this evening. The threat of rain and potential thunderstorms turn out to be an excellent night for lacrosse. The Cowboys came out in the first period ready to play and scored three goals allowing the Bombers only one goal. In the second period Wyoming repeated the three goal run and St. X scored two goals bringing the half-time score to Wyoming six, St. Xavier three. The second half only produced two goals for Wyoming and one goal for St. X. Both teams honored the game with excellent sportsmanship and a competitive spirit.

The Captains for the Wyoming Cowboys, Matt Fisher, Harry Meisner, and James Edwards, led the way keeping the team focused and disciplined throughout the game. Harry and James each scored goals in the game and Matt rallied the defensive play to hold the Bombers to four goals. Six of the offensive goals came from the Hughes brothers, Tyler and Austin, three goals each.

Cowboy’s goalie, Michael Sagan, in an outstanding demonstration of skill and ability, had eighteen goalie saves on the night. The Bombers had four man up situations and Sagan denied goals during all four.

One of the deciding factors of the game was the number of loose balls controlled by each team. The Cowboys had sixty-four ground balls controlled to the Bombers twenty-six. Of the sixty-four, Tyler Hughes had ten, Harrison Wood had nine, and Nik Kamphaus had eight. Other significant contributors to picking up loose balls included Austin Hughes, James Edwards, Daniel Leish, Matt Fisher, Travis Courtney, Will Irwin, John Colton, Tommy Campbell, and Harry Meisner.

Coaches Keith Hughes and Barry Porter had good practices this week and orchestrated the right mixture of offense and defensive play for an exciting and fast paced game.
Next week the Cowboy’s host two home games against Kings Wednesday, May 12th and Lakota East Friday, May 14th. Both games are scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM at Lewis Stadium. Join the Wyoming LAX team next week for what will be two great games.

Random Sports Fact

The velocity of a pitched baseball is about 8 mph faster as it leaves the pitchers hand than when it reaches home plate.

Big Ups to the 'Zons

As most of you know, Jane Streeter was hit in the eye by a softball during Wyoming's game on Saturday, April 10th at McNicholas High School (and Jane's folks want you to know that everyone there did a great job in taking care of Jane after the injury).  She had fractures in three different places around her eye.  Initially there was concern that she might lose vision in that eye, but she is now expected to make a full recovery.  Vision loss would have been especially problematic for Jane, as it would likely have disqualified her from attending the United States Air Force Academy, where she is due to report on June 24th.

Shortly after Jane injured her eye, Madeira softball player Gretchen Staubach (All CHL in Volleyball, Basketball and Softball and dubbed by the Streeters as "the Ambassador of Goodwill") stopped by the Streeter house with her parents to deliver a bouquet of flowers and a get well card signed by the entire Madeira 'Zons softball team. According to Jane's dad Stan, "It was an example of the friendships and sportsmanship that occur because of interscholastic athletic competition, and demonstrated one of the reasons why I am such a big fan of the CHL. I thought the comments from Sarah Hammitt, last year’s CHL Softball Player of the Year, who is battling back from knee surgery were truly appreciated. It was obvious the gesture meant a lot to Jane."

For their great show of sportsmanship and compassion, the Roundup would like to offer a Wyoming Cowboys ten gallon hats off to Gretchen and the entire Madeira softball team.
