Girls' tennis "loves" Deer Park

The girls' tennis team beat Deer Park yesterday at love - every match was 6-0, 6-0 in favor of the Cowboys.

Singles winners were Tess Thoresen, Maddie Boster and Ellen Koesterman.  Doubles teams were Camille Wilson-Rachel (probably, could have been Ashley - the paper doesn't say) Berg and Rise Sakaguchi-Cecily Hedge.

Next up: this afternoon at Lakota West at 4 PM.

Boys' soccer defeats Mariemont

The boys' soccer team won its game at Mariemont 2-0 last night.

Senior Cory Macke scored both of the Cowboys' goals.  It was already 1-0 when I got there about halfway through the first half and the second goal didn't come until late (maybe five minutes to go in the game), so most of the game was a tense one goal differential.

Harrison Glover got the shutout.

Next up: Thursday at Princeton, JV at 5, Varsity at 7.

Football wrap-up

I received a link to the stats and got the pictures done for the Walnut Hills game.  Just the Wyoming stats are posted so one can't make comparisons.

Senior Dennis Austin, Junior Connor Hughes and sophomore Brandford Darlington led the team in tackles with twelve each.  Senior Mikey Gonzalez was just one back with eleven.

Senior Adam Chalmers and sophomore Casey Howell had picks, with Adam returning his 22 yards and Casey 14.

Senior Brian Anderson recovered the opening onside kick.

Sophomore Griffin O'Gara was credited with the safety that resulted from Walnut Hills snapping the ball past their punter and into the end zone.

On the offensive side, sophomore QB Will Marty was 16-32 for 194 yards and three TD's.

Seniors Max Kadish and Phillip Schuholz and junior Ben Kurtz each had four receptions including a TD.  Ben led in yardage with 63.

Our biggest deficiency was in the running game, where even after you factor out sack yardage we gained just 40 yards on 15 carries.

Next up: at Turpin Friday night at 7:30.  (Turpin lost its opener 42-28 to Loveland.)

Boys' JV Soccer Update

Thanks to Debi & Joel Varland for the following update:
Boys JV soccer won 1-0 Thursday night against Lebanon!
With a about five minutes to go in the game it was 0-0 and Wyoming got a penalty kick. Freshman Toby Varland was called on to take it and he buried it.

Exciting for all!

This Week in Cowboy Sports

TWICS here.


Tri-County Press 8-24-11

This week's TCP here.

Coverage includes football, football, football.

Nerdball test - if you think this is even somewhat interesting, welcome fellow nerdball: the middle cover photo is of Wyoming football action (Michael Travers making a tackle, to be precise).  It accompanies an article about the police and how they ramp up for Wyoming and Princeton home football games.  But our players are wearing white.  They're also playing on grass.  So this picture actually came from an away game at Oakwood - a game for which it is unlikely that our police had any extra concern.  I warned you.

Boys' soccer ties Lebanon

The boys' soccer team played to a scoreless draw last night at Bob Lewis Stadium against Lebanon.

Thanks to Doctors Julia and Laura Kinlaw

The Boosters and football team would like to send out a big thanks to local dentists Julia and Laura Kinlaw.  The Doctors Kinlaw have a practice on Wyoming Avenue.

They recently donated custom made mouthguards for each member of the football team.  Each of the players went to their office - they made impressions - and each player received a professional mouthguard for this season.

New Soccer Goals

From AD Scott Kaufman:

Thanks to the Wyoming Athletic Boosters, new soccer goals for the A-Field have arrived.

At my recommendation, the Boosters agreed to purchase soccer goals for the A-Field to replace the goals that were old, unsafe and beyond repair. The new goals are Kwik-Goals that are approved for High School, College and International play. They also come with a lifetime warranty!!

Since they come with wheels, it will be easy (and safe) to move them on and off the field.

My sincere appreciation to the Wyoming Athletic Boosters for their continued support of Wyoming Athletics. The first game with the new goals resulted in a girls 4-0 win against Princeton.
