Volleyball opens with win over Fairfield

The volleyball team opened its season at home on Saturday with a 25-18, 25-21, 21-25, 19-25, 15-6 victory over Fairfield.  It was very exciting for the lucky fans who got to see the match in air-conditioned comfort.

The team seemed to be cruising to victory after the first two games, only to see Fairfield mount a fierce comeback and take games three and four.

Taylor Weis immediately gave the advantage to the Cowboys in the decisive fifth game with her strong serves. 

Next up: at Madeira on Tuesday the 31st, JV at 5:30, Varsity at 7

Car Wash for a Cure follow-up

The Roundup was forwarded this note from Emily Oscarson, who headed up the Car Wash for a Cure.
Good Morning,
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you regarding the 'Car Wash'! It went so well, and we had at LEAST 20 Boosters stop by... many of them even just stopped to donate, which was amazing. I appreciate your help in getting the word out, and supporting the event. Your help truly made it a success!

Go Cowboys

Seyfried's three TD passes propel football team to season-opening victory

On as nice a night as one could hope for in August, Wyoming opened its 2010 football season last night with a 21-7 victory over Edgewood at Mason as part of the Crosstown Showdown.

The game got off to a rather inauspicious start.  I assume it had to do with the fact that the game was televised and hence the officials weren't sure about the TV timing, but their signal to start the game was, I'll say charitably, less than demonstrative.  By the time we understood that we could kick off, we were penalized for delay of game.  Has anyone ever seen a delay of game on the opening kickoff?  I'm not sure if I've ever seen a delay of game on any kickoff.  Anyway, Tyler Cornelius then delivered a 59 yard kickoff and the cover team only allowed a 7 yard return.  In two plays the defense had pushed Edgewood back from its 13 to its own 7, third and 16 - the rout was on. 

Not so fast my friends.  Edgewood picked up the first down and went on to a 21 play drive that consumed all but 9 seconds of the first quarter.  Luckily for the Cowboys, on fourth and five from our ten Edgewood attempted a field goal which we blocked.

The offense then proceeded to march 90 yards, capped off by a 2 yard TD pass from Kyle Seyfried to Max Kadish.  The drive was highlighted by a 22 yard Drew Perry run, a 21 yard run by Kyle, and 3 receptions by Max.

On its next drive, Edgewood faced third and 10 after picking up one first down, and hit a 64 yard pass and run to tie the score at 7.

After a 21 yard Jaleel Allen kickoff return, the offense came right back with a 64 yard TD drive.  The score came on a 41 yard Kyle to Jonathan Tighe pass completion.  Halftime score - Wyoming 14, Edgewood 7.

The defensive coordinators must have done some good scheming at halftime because neither time did much offensively in the third quarter.  Wyoming punted twice and Edgewood once.

Trailing by only one score, Edgewood's first fourth quarter possession started at its 37.  Max then made a key play, intercepting a second down pass, setting up the Cowboys at our own 37.  It took the offense just four plays to score, including a 17 yard run by Drew, a 13 yard Kyle to Phillp Schuholz completion, and a 30 yard TD pass from Kyle to Jonathan.  The Cowboy faithful could finally breathe a little easier.

The offense didn't do a lot after that but the defense made the 21-7 margin stand by forcing a punt, recovering a fumble, and then closing the game out with Chris Campbell's interception.

We only outgained Edgewood 269-262, but the defense's four takeaways (2 fumbles, 2 interceptions) made a big difference. Except for Max's two yard TD reception, the scoring plays were home runs - 30 and 41 yards for us, 64 for Edgewood.

Drew picked up 47 yards rushing on just 8 carries. Kyle was 15 of 24 for 184 yards and 3 TD's (no interceptions). Receiving leaders with Jonathan with 6 receptions for 114 yards and 2 TD's and Max with 8 receptions for 57 yards.  Tyler Cornelius was 3-3 in PAT's.

On the strength of his two-way performance Max was selected as the Wyoming MVP.

Next up: the JV takes on Edgewood on home on Saturday at 10; the varsity has its home opener on Friday, September 3rd at 7:30.  Tailgate immediately preceding at 7.

Boys' soccer location

How many of you have driven to a school for an away game only to find out that the athletic venue is located elsewhere?  I have a number of times and it's really annoying.

So anytime anyone knows of that upcoming circumstance, please drop me a note by 1 or so on the day of the event and I'll post it here.

So...tonight's boys' soccer game against Lebanon High School will be played at Lebanon Junior High School, 160 Miller Rd., Lebanon, OH 45036.

Oh - and the football game is at Mason High School - 6100 S. Mason-Montgomery Road, 45040 - basically at the corner of Mason-Montgomery and Tylersville.  Mason Middle School is co-located with the high school.

Girls' tennis succumbs to the Lakotas

On Monday, Lakota West beat the girls' tennis team on 4 courts, but we were able to take a win in 3rd singles. Meredith Hennessy pulled off a close win - 6-4, 7-5. Ashley Berg at 1st singles (0-6, 1-6) and Tess Thoresen at 2nd (1-6, 2-6) as well as 2nd doubles team, Camille Wilson and Stella Fischer (1-6, 4-6) lost. The first doubles team of Maddie Boster and Ellen Koesterman battled for two plus hours before losing 6-7, 6-7.

Lakota East beat us today; again it was 4 courts to 1. For the sole win, it was once again Meredith Hennessy (6-3, 6-4). All the losses were in straight sets. Asheley (1,0); Tess (0,0); Maddie & Ellen (5-7, 0-6) and Camille & Stella (3,0).

These Division I schools were scheduled as opening matches to challenge our girls and to prepare them for the upcoming CHL matches.

Next Up:
Today, home, Seven Hills at 4:00

Today's Varsity Athletic Events NOT working

Thanks to those who have pointed out that the "Today's Varsity Athletic Events" section at the top of the blog home page is not working.  It is stuck on August 16.  While a Roundup family member did turn 19 on that date, we believe that other causes are behind the problem.  We have the crack Roundup tech team working on a fix.

The "Wyoming Sports Schedule (Month)" link in the "Other sites of interest" section along the right side IS working.

Boys' golf downs McNick, McNick & Madeira (that's not a typo)

On Tuesday evening, the Wyoming boys' golf team defeated McNicholas (Gold), McNicholas (Green) and Madeira at Losantiville Country Club.

Senior Joseph Dulemba was the match medalist with a 4 over par 39 on the front nine. Senior Brian Spitzig and junior Adam Crider also shot matching 41’s for the Cowboys who improved to 13 – 0 on the year in dual / tri-matches.

Next up for Wyoming is Reading on Thursday 8/26 @ Sharon Woods.

Panos leads Boys' Soccer to JV, Varsity sweep of Roger Bacon

Last night in the friendly confines of Bob Lewis Stadium the boys' soccer team opened its season in striking fashion.  The JV won 5-0.  Tony Gentry sang the National Anthem.  The Varsity won 6-0.  I'm guessing that's pretty much how Coach Thomas had scripted it.

For the varsity, senior captain Joe Panos and sophomore Nathan Meisner scored two goals each, while senior Jamie Meranus and sophomore Daniel Richtand tallied one each. 

Every bit as impressive as the goals were some of the assists.  Joe had two to go along with his two goals, and Daniel had one to go with his goal.  In addition, senior captain Aaron Linn served one up as did junior Daniel Zimmerman.

The defense was stout, led by senior captain JB Heisey, helping the keeper combination of junior Evan Handler (four saves) and sophomore Harrison Glover (five saves) pitch a shutout.

Next up: tomorrow night at Lebanon, JV at 5:30, Varsity at 7.

McKee, Jolson & Keller lead girls' soccer to victory in opener

The girls soccer team opened its season yesterday with a 2-0 win against Princeton. The Cowboys scored nine minutes into the second half on a corner kick from junior Michelle Jolson. Senior Nikki McKee headed the ball to the far post for the Cowboys first goal of the season. The second goal came with ten minutes remaining in the game when sophomore Carly Levick's shot was deflected out of the Viking keeper's hands. Michelle Jolson was there to put it away for the second goal.

The defense then held strong for the final 10 minutes of the game.  The Cowboys saw excellent midfield play from senior Hailee Schlager and junior Meghan McAllister. Sophomore keeper Abby Keller recorded 12 saves en route to her first shutout.

Next up: home opener this Wednesday vs. McNick - JV at 5, Varsity at 7.  Come out and support the girls as they begin their home campaign.

Bob Lewis Stadium plaque dedication

Most of you know that Wyoming’s stadium is named after long time head football coach Bob Lewis. Prior to the Little Miami scrimmage last Friday night a plaque honoring Coach Lewis was dedicated. It is meant to be a way to put a real person with the name Bob Lewis for those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to know him.

Coach Lewis’ family was on hand for the dedication.

Board of Education member Terry Marty offered some comments on Coach Lewis which I paraphrase below:
Coach Lewis and I had a friendship that stretch over the course of 53 years… He passed about September 24th of last year…I was in the first class that he coached, which was the 1956 football season…

Coach Lewis had one of the best records of any high school football coach in the country. He won state titles in both Ohio and Kentucky…I told him that he should have gone to Indiana to complete the tri-state…He never had a losing season in 22 years…He was 198-21-7 at Wyoming and 270-55-8 overall. He is in the Ohio High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame along with such coaches as Woody Hayes, Paul Brown, and one of his players, Bernie Barre…Bernie has followed in Bob’s footsteps and coached teams to over 300 victories…Wyoming has only had three coaches over the last 54 years – Coach Lewis, Gary Jump and Coach Barre. Their combined record is 440-109-12 for a winning percentage of 79%.

Coach Lewis left his mark on so many individuals…Records are fine, but great coaches and teachers leave a lasting mark – teaching students and athletes values such as loyalty, commitment and respect…All who coached Coach Lewis’ path are blessed with these memories.
Thanks to Arch Cunningham for the pictures.

Football tickets on sale

Tickets for the Crosstown Showdown football game on Thursday at Mason can be purchased for $10 at the high school during school hours. They are $12 at the gate. Wyoming gets $2 for every ticket sold at school pre-sale (and nothing at the gate) so it's a win-win.  Hopefully the team can triumph and make it a win-win-win.

Soccer rule changes

It's important that we all know the rules of the games we're watching so we can understand the game better, explain things to our kids, and yell at the refs with confidence.  (How many of us really feel confident about offsides?  I mean, if they had those cool graphics like at the World Cup, sure, but...).

Anyway, here are some updates to the Ohio High School Soccer rules for this year:

1. Either team may now substitute an unlimited number of players from the bench when a player is injured and removed from the field.

2. Any player who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion shall be immediately removed from the contest and shall not return to play until cleared by an appropriate health-care professional.
3. While a throw-in is being taken, an opponent must now stand at least two yards from the point at which the throw-in is being taken. Penalty: An official shall administer a caution for unsporting conduct if this is not observed.

Boys' soccer web site

Boys' soccer varsity assistant coach Richard Hartke has put together a web site for the team.  You can find it here.

I've also added a link along the right side of the blog in the "Other Sites of Interest" section.

Super Saturday

Remember that Super Saturday is tomorrow.  The athletes will be at school at 9:45 - they'll get a pep talk from Jim Barre and head out at around 10.  The drive-through will be open from 10-12 at the high school if you prefer to get your cards immediately.

The Roundup is now on Facebook

The Wyoming Roundup now has a presence on Facebook.

Although the blog/e-mail works for us old folks, the Boosters thought that having a Facebook page might be a good way to communicate with the kids.  For anyone as uninformed as I was a week ago, we have created a Facebook page (sometimes called a Fan Page).  That's different from a profile page, so instead of "Friending", you "Like" the Roundup Page.  Then when we post blog entries they automatically post on the Facebook page Wall and show up in your News Feed.

I think.

Anyway, the page is here or just Search for "The Wyoming Roundup."

Bob Lewis Plaque Dedication and Pre-Season Game “Jamboree”

Please join the Boosters and the Lewis family for a plaque dedication at the WHS football field in honor of Bob Lewis. Bob Lewis coached the Cowboys from 1956 to 1978 and in 23 years never had a losing season compiling an astonishing record of 198-21-7.

The stadium is named after Coach Lewis and the Boosters and Athletic Director Jim Barre wanted fans in the future to understand why the stadium is named after this legendary coach and mentor.

Following the plaque dedication our Wyoming Varsity Football team will scrimmage Little Miami in our last tune up before the season opener August 26th against Edgewood at Mason.

Plaque Dedication: Friday August 20th at 7:00 p.m.

Game Time: Friday, August 20th at 7:30p.m.

Note: There will be a $5.00/person charge for this Jamboree scrimmage regardless of age and super booster cards are not accepted. This jamboree is a fund raiser for the OHSAA Scholarship program.


This Saturday's boys' soccer alumni game needs...alumni

David Payne, WHS 2000 and Olympic Silver Medalist, to be inducted into UC's Athletic Hall of Fame

David Payne, WHS Class of 2000 and Olympic silver medalist, will be inducted into UC's Athletic Hall of Fame on October 27th.  From the UC web site:
David Payne (men's track & field, 2001-04) won an Olympic silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, competing in the 110 hurdles and posting a time of 13.17 in the event. He was a two-time all-American in the 110 hurdles at UC, and currently owns two school records in both the 110 and 400 hurdles. Payne collected another silver medal in the 2007 Pan Am Games and was a bronze medalist in the 2007 and 2009 World Outdoor Championships.

"Attending the University of Cincinnati was a journey that is now leading me to achieve my dreams," said Payne. "Using the skills I learned from the University has prepared me to be a great man, athlete and a U.S. ambassador on the world stage. It was my pleasure attending as it is now accepting this overwhelming nomination into the University of Cincinnati Athletics Hall of Fame."

Boys' Varsity Soccer plays to scoreless draw vs. Monroe

Coach Thomas was happy with the way the varsity and JV teams played last night in their first scrimmage:
Congratulations to both the JV and Varsity Teams for the two great games that were played last night. The JV played exceptionally well in the 6-1 victory over Monroe and the Varsity played well against a strong Monroe team which resulted in a 0-0 draw.


Letter from Iraq

Mary Lou Edgington received the following e-mail from Army Lieutenant Eric Baker in regards to the Care Package that we blogged about previously.
Mrs. Edge-

I got back from a mission last night at about 0300, and I saw those 6 huge boxes sitting inside of our office. When I saw they were addressed from you, I was pretty fired up. I cannot thank you and the Wyoming people enough for everything you sent. Needless to say, it was a great "pick me up" for my guys after a pretty long mission. Everything was distributed pretty quickly, as these guys were definitely in need of many of the things you sent. They are all extremely appreciative of your thoughts and prayers, and many of them wanted me to relay a big "thanks" to all of you.

It was also great to see the note from all of the Wyoming families, especially the Weiss family. You guys have all been such good friends to us. Wyoming was a great place to grow up, and things like this just make me miss you guys even more.

Everything is going relatively well over here. We are technically stopping combat operations at the beginning of September, but we are still on the road a lot due to having a very large operating environment. It will be a huge relief to finish this month and go on leave for about 2 weeks at the beginning of September. After that, it will be just trying to wrap things up over here and get these guys home safely. I'm hoping that all of my guys will be home by Christmas.

Thanks again Mrs. Edge -- Please be sure to tell your family hello for me!

Saturday Football Scrimmage Time Change

In order to avoid a conflict with Saturday's Car Wash for a Cure, the home football scrimmage this Saturday against Purcell Marian has been moved up to 9 AM. 

OK, it's really being moved to avoid the heat, but hey, it works out great this way.  As you remember, the Car Wash is from 11 AM to 3 PM at Spring Valley Bank.  So see the football team scrimmage and then swing through the car wash.  Remember to identify yourself if you're a SuperBooster.

Boys' soccer preseason under way tonight

The boys' soccer team travels to Lemon-Monroe High School today to kick off the preseason.  JV plays at 5, Varsity at 7.


Car Wash for a Cure Update

You remember the Car Wash for a Cure, right?

It's the car wash being held this Saturday from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Spring Valley Bank by assistant volleyball coach Emily Oscarson to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), in honor of Julie Galloway.  (If you don't remember, click on the link above for all the details.)

At their meeting Tuesday night, the Boosters decided to up the ante.  The Boosters will donate $5 for every SuperBooster that gets his or her car washed.  Just let them know you're a SuperBooster when you go through.  You will be helping a worthy cause.


Boys' golf off to strong start

The boys' golf team defeated Fenwick Monday at Weatherwax to kick off the season.  The score was Wyoming 337 and Fenwick 338 (18 hole match). Medalist was Colin Fogel, who posted a 78. His score was even more remarkable considering that’s the first match Colin has played in since Freshman year. He was the last player to post a score and made about a 3 foot putt on the 18th hole for the win.

Tuesday the team competed in the Batavia / Madeira Invitational at The Vineyard. They finished in 3rd place, one shot out of a playoff for first. Taylor and Indian Hill played off after finishing tied at 311. Taylor won the playoff to finish first and Indian Hill finished 2nd. Medalist for Wyoming was Adam Crider who shot a 75. Adam birdied the 18th hole for a strong finish and ended up 4th in the event overall, which included 14 teams (84 players total). Other notable scores from Wyoming were Sam Meyers who shot 78 and Joseph Dulemba who shot 79.

Next up: CHL Preview on Thursday afternoon.

Car Wash for a Cure

The Boosters encourage everyone to come out and support this fundraiser by assistant volleyball coach Emily Oscarson:

I am holding a Car Wash for a Cure on Saturday, August 14 from 11am-3pm at the Spring Valley Bank in Wyoming. 100% of the proceeds go to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) for cancer research.

I am lucky enough to have the help and support of the Wyoming HS Volleyball Team who will be out there with me washing cars and having fun, as we raise awareness and money towards a cure for cancer.

On May 15, I signed up with the Cincinnati chapter of Team in Training to run the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco on October 17. On top of the running, I have a goal of raising over $3500 for cancer research! I initially signed up for this event, because I was inspired to make a difference in my life. I wanted to do something that would push me physically and mentally, while also doing something positive for others. I will be raising money and training for this event in honor of Julie Galloway, an inspiring and motivational member of the Wyoming Volleyball family.

If you are unable to attend the car wash, but still want to help, please feel free to visit my fundraising website!


Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for cancer. More than 823,000 Americans are battling blood cancers. I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.

On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity.

Welcome new CC Head Coach Glendenning

The Roundup would like to welcome Travis Glendenning as the new Cross Country Head Coach for both the girls' and boys' teams.  Coach Glendenning takes over from Dan Flaute, who departed to take over the Xavier University track and cross country programs.

Coach Glendenning is a teacher at the high school.  His subjects include geography, history, and sociology.  He graduated from Ohio University in 2005 and completed graduate work in political science at Miami University (M.A) and Georgetown University.

He has worked with the cross country teams for two years and has also been the assistant girls basketball coach for several years.   "I am looking forward to working with a number of talented returning runners this fall," said Coach Glendenning.  "Also, I'm very excited that Molly O'Brien, an accomplished former Wyoming runner, will join me as the assistant coach this season."


And they're off...

The fall sports season is officially under way.  The football team started practice today.  The rest of the teams join them next Monday.  Where does the time go?
