This Week (and Last) in the TCP

This week in the Tri-County Press there is a preview of the Boys' Basketball Team now under the direction of Matt Rooks. 

Check it our here  HERE

I also realize I missed posting about last week's TCP where there was a preview of the Girls' Basketball Team and their new coach Gerry Lackey.  Also included was a photo of Natalie Burchard

A Rose by Any Other Name

I have been told that the Middle School Swim team is called the Cowfish. If it's true, I think that is AWESOME, and I want a shirt! Before I start calling them the Cowfish, I need you (that's right, you) to confirm it. Otherwise, I need to figure out what I did to my so-called source to make him trick me like this.

And while you're at it, let me know if there are any other Wyoming teams with names other than the Cowboys.

Middle School Mercy Rule

Wednesday, November 28th, the Middle School Swim/Dive Team traveled to Oak Hills to open their season.  As Wyoming swimmers were finishing first and second in each event, the official scoring the event stopped after the 50 yd. events.  (It sounds like I am trying to funny, but that's the story I've heard).  So that's a win... no, it's more like a WIN!!

They swim at Mason on Monday, December 3rd. 

There are rumors that even though Mason should be a tougher team, our swimmers will be asked to swim in jeans and their shoes to make the meet more competitive.

Wyoming Flys Away With a Win

Wyoming Wins Home Opener
The Wyoming Men and Women's Swim Team won their season home opener on Tuesday, November 27th against Clark Montessori. Junior Cambray Smith (200 Free), and freshmen, Sara Washienko (50 Free & 100 Free) and Bailey Skidmore (100 Breast) were varsity winners on the women's side. The men's team had the following winners: Senior David Weinrich (50 Free), Junior Noah Hamilton (100 Breast), Sophomores Sean Gray (200 IM) and Abe Wickstrom (100 Back), and Freshman, Jonah Engelhardt (200 Free). The men's 200 yd Medley Relay composed of Sean Gray, Jess Wilson-Woodrow, David Weinrich and Noah Hamilton won with a time of 2:02.21. The 200 yard Free Relay with Jonah Engelhardt, Abe Wickstrom, Wilson-Woodrow, and Ben Fershtman also won with a time of 1:54.66.

The Men and Women will be competing this Saturday at the Mason Invitational.

Perry Wins!

Sometimes it can be difficult to break out of the shadow of an older sibling.  I didn't make it any easier for Eric Perry when his older brother Drew Perry was posted as the recipient of the Most Knockdowns Award from the Football Fall Sports Awards.  Drew graduated in 2011, so he was likely not eligible to play with the team this season.  Rest assured Eric; the Fact-Checking Division will suffer greatly for their sins.

So to reiterate - we here at the Round-Up now believe that Football team's Most Knockdowns Award winner was ERIC PERRY.

Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader for bringing this to our attention.

Cross Country 2012 Records

Two runners cracked the Cross Country's Top Twenty this year.

Sophomore Ben Stites hit the 5th spot with his time of 16:34 (just a mere 22 seconds out of first place)

Junior Ian Goertzen ran into the 11th spot with his time of 16:59 (just 1 second out of the Top Ten)

It'll be a loooong wait for next Fall.

Girls Varsity Basketball Opener

The Girls Varsity Basketball team began the season ranked 25th in the Enquirer's Ohio Girls Basketball DII-DIV Preseason Coaches' Poll.  Last night, Monday November 26th, they opened the season on the road against the 10th ranked Summit Country Day with a 29-45 loss. 

Thanks to our man, Graham Wadds, for the photo of the team during the National Anthem.
It's a great shot considering he was shooting blind, lefty, and one-handed, with his right hand over his heart, looking at the flag, and singing the whole time.

Wyoming Wrestlers Invited to the Party

Saturday, November 24th, four WHS Varsity wrestlers represented the Cowboys at the Graham Previews: Ethan Padnos, Ike and Asa Palmer, and Joey Gallick. The event is by invitation only and showcases the best wrestlers in Southwest Ohio based on record and qualifying for District or state.  

While not technically a meet, there were three one minute periods and no OT.  Ike won his match.
Thanks to Margaret Gallick for the report and the pictures.


Fall Sports Awards - Girls Soccer

From Coach Gruber

Defensive MVP - Abby Keller
Abby has been our anchor in the back for the past 3 seasons, often making difficult saves look easy with her athletic ability. She has verbally committed to play at Indian State next year.
- 5 shutouts (3 in CHL) for 2012 season
- 25 career shutouts (13 in the CHL)

Offensive MVP - Emma Klug
Emma is our engine in the middle and what we look to do almost everything through. Not only did she lead the team in scoring, but was often the catalyst for our offensive attacks that resulted in other scoring opportunities.
- 4 goals for 2012 season
- 12 career goals & 9 assists

Cowboy Award - Morgan Kremzar
This award is meant to embody the characteristics and values that our soccer program stands for. Morgan was an exemplary player with her coach-ability, positivity, hard work ethic, and team first attitude. As a defender, she is not someone who would ever appear in the stats in the paper, but her contribution on and off the field was integral in the team's progression this season.

Arete Award - Georgia Smith
I stole this award from the basketball program (Thanks Angie!). Arete is a Greek word that when loosely translated means, "Be the best that you can be." Despite the personal hardships she has endured, Georgia's commitment to make the most of any situation has been evident throughout her 4 years with the program. She developed into an integral member, earning 4 varsity letters, contributing to 40 shutouts over her career, and raising her teammates expectations of success with her experience on the 2009 team that made the run to the State Final 4.

Congratulations to all of the girls on their awards and best of luck to the three seniors!!!


CHL All Sports Trophy

After the Fall season, Wyoming has sprinted to the lead in the CHL All Sports Trophy.  The teams have pulled together for 55 points. Mariemont is in second place with 48 points and Indian Hill and Maderia are tied for third with 47.5 points.

Schedule Correction

In my last post about the upcoming Winter season, I was incorrect about the High School Swim team's first meet.  It is on Tuesday, November 27th.


Oh, It's Coming...

Okay, the regular (insert your favorite sport here) season hasn't started yet, and it feels like it's been a lifetime since the last of the Fall sports wrapped up.  To avoid getting laid off right before the Holidays, I need to look busy.  So in a shameless attempt to keep my job and to ramp up some excitement for the upcoming Winter season I have been scrounging for something to give you.  So here you are, Middle School Swim Team time trials. 

The kids look fast; it promises to be a great season.  The Middle School and High School Swim teams have their first meet on November 27th.

High School Girls Basketball first game is November 26
High School Wrestling first Dual meet is December 1st
Middle School Girls Basketball first game is December 3rd
Middle School Boys Basketball first game is December 3rd
High School Boys Basketball first game is December 4th


Stites Goes National

Emily Stites ('12), earned All-American honors as she competed in the DI Women's National Cross Country meet in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, November 17th, 2012.  She finished in 26th place with a time of 20:05.8. She was the second runner for William and Mary to cross the finish line, as her teammate, Junior Elaina Balouris, finished in 13 with a time of 19:56.1. The William and Mary team finished in 21st.  Emily was the 4th fastest freshman at the meet.
Thanks to Coach Knickel for the heads up on the story and for the picture.

Kickers and Keepers Corral Copious Kudos

From Coach Gruber

At the recent CHL and All Southwest coaches meeting, several Wyoming Girls Soccer players received some post-season awards that were based on the votes of other CHL and DII coaches. The following awards are a true testament to the girls, as the CHL continues to be one of the strongest Girls DII leagues in the state. This year, the CHL had 3 District Champions, 1 Regional Champion, and a State Final 4 appearance. So a big congratulations to the following girls on their honors:

1st Team All-Southwest: Abby Keller & Emma Klug

1st Team CHL: Abby Keller

2nd Team CHL: Sarah Deutsch, Emma Klug, & Carly Varland

Honorable Mention CHL: Georgia Smith & Maddie Clark

Senior Abby Keller was selected to play in the Senior All Star Game last night on Wednesday, November 14th at Mason HS. Junior Emma Klug was also at halftime for her 1st team honors.

(I know, the alliteration is getting out of hand.  But after I did it for the first sport, I had to keep it consistent.)

Servers, Spikers, and Setters Score Star Status

I don't know if those are real Volleyball words, but I have to appease my alliteration addiction.  The Volleyball team had a great season and it seems like a lot of people took notice.  They should all be proud of what they accomplished.

Some of just can't let the season go.  You know it's bad when a Booster (to remain nameless) was seen last Friday night flipping imaginary burgers over an unlit grill at Bob Lewis Sadium.  So for those of you who can't go cold turkey, here is a gridiron step-down patch.  I'll give you a chance to relive the thrill-a-minute season that was 2012.  Here are the names that went into the record book

Team Competition

Wyoming JV - 2nd place
Wyoming Varsity - 4th place

Individual Awards
Middle School Jump Off - Yasmin Sherrod, 2nd place

I have some pictures (trying to capture the team as whole in action) posted HERE.
Rod Apfelbeck will have pictures (more close-in) to be posted soon.


Let's Cheer on the Ones Who Cheer On

The ladies below have been, and will be, cheering for everyone else all year long.  Let's return the favor and come out and cheer for them on Saturday.
Photos, thanks to Rod Apfelbeck, from the August 30th Football game vs. Turpin.

This Week in the TCP

This week in the Tri-County Press you'll find wrap-up articles for Volleyball, Football, and Cross Country.  There is also a great article about the Kick for a Cure event organized by the Soccer teams.It's not only a great article, it's a great big article.  There is a whole page dedicated to the story including lots of photos from the event.  We will have to ask for a correction to the story though.  There is a photo showing three girls keeping goal together, that was obviously meant to illustrate what opposing teams might as well have been facing all season long with phenom's Abby Keller and Harrison Glover blocking shots.  Not to question their up-bringing, but they were incredibly stingy with the goals this year.

Besides the Kick for a Cure event photos, there are photos of Senior Tatiyana Ali, Junior Natalie Burchard, Sophomore Ben Stites, Junior Ian Goertzen, Junior Will Marty, and Junior Dominic Vamosi.

Check it out HERE

Amazing All-City, All-Southwest, All-Star Athletes Are Awesome

You can't have a season like our Boys' Varsity Soccer Team had and not expect some accolades to come your way.  Coach Thomas has relayed the following:

All-City Team: The following three players from Wyoming were named to the All-City Team by the Division II Coaches at the recent Southwest Ohio Coaches Meeting:
Harrison Glover, Daniel Richtand and Drew Wayman. Well Done! This is a great honor for these players! Both Harrison and Daniel will be playing in the All-Southwest Ohio All-Star Game on November 13th. Since only seniors can play in the all-star game, Drew will be recognized during the Pre-Game ceremonies but will not be playing in the game.
2. All-Southwest Ohio All-Star Game – November 13th – 7 pm. The game will be played at Mason High School located at 6100 Mason-Montgomery Road, Mason Ohio 45040. The following seniors will be playing in this game: Harrison Glover, Daniel Richtand, Todd Goodall and David Weinrich. Please come and support these players.
3. JV/Varsity Fall Awards MeetingThe JV and Varsity Soccer Fall Awards Meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 20th at 7 pm at the High School. The date for our Fall Awards Meeting had to be changed from November 13th to November 20th to allow four of our Seniors to play in the All-Southwest Ohio All-Star game on the 13th


The State of Ben Stites

On November 3rd, Ben Stites ran as an individual at the State Cross Country Meet held at the National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.  While there, he cranked out another personal best with his time of 16:34.10.  He was in 51st place at the 1 mile mark, and he was in 47th place at the 2 mile mark, and then moved up to 38th place by the finish.

Awesome job, Ben!

CHL Cheer Competition This Weekend!

From Jamie Gause

Practice makes perfect! The Wyoming cheerleaders may know a little something about this mantra. JV and Varsity cheerleaders are practicing their flips and splits, chants, and jumps faithfully in preparation for the CHL Cheer Competition that will take place this Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 10:00 am. In true cheerleading fashion, these young ladies are excited about representing are wonderful Wyoming High school and would love to see your faces and hear your voices in the stands as they work hard to obtain 1st place within the competition. The parents of these cheerleaders, the cheerleaders themselves, and the coaches have committed themselves to excellence and have worked tirelessly to host a wonderful cheerleading event within our very own community. We hope to see our community there cheering on our hard working, spirited, dedicated, and talented young ladies. Please join us this Saturday at the high school for an exciting sporting event.

HERE is a flyer for the event.


Boosters Bounce to Wednesday

The upcoming Wyoming Athletic Booster's Meeting has been rescheduled.  It was originally slated for Tuesday, November 6th, but has been moved to 7:00 PM Wednesday, November 7th at the High School Media Center.


Seen About Town

For those of us not able to make the trip to see Ben Stites take 38th place out of 150 runners at the State cross country meet today (Saturday, November 3rd), there was the Larry Lyons Invitational Swim Meet, where more than a few of Wyoming's athletes could be found pulling double duty for the YMCA's Tigersharks swim team.  I don't have any results.  Think of this as just a cheap marketing ploy to get you excited and ready to come out to cheer on the school's teams as they dive into action in the coming weeks.  Pictured below are Camille Wilson, Caroline Duke, and Brennan Burt.



This Week in the TCP

This week in the Tri-County Press you'll find the great article about the Volleyball team we pointed you to earlier.  There is also coverage of the Football loss to Maderia, the Soccer loss to Indian Hill, and the Cross Country Regionals.
Also included are pictures of Sophomore Asa Palmer, Junior Jessica Leish, Senior Daniel Richtand and the Volleyball team.

Sibling Rivalry?

Ben Stites is headed to the State cross county meet this weekend, and we are all pretty stoked for him.  His older sister Emily ('12) just couldn't let him have his moment in the spotlight though.  On Saturday she finished third in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Championships.  She was also named the CAA Runner of the Week recently.  From what little I understand, her school William and Mary is ranked 28th nationally, and 2nd in the Southeast Region and there is a good chance she will be seen tearing up the field at the National Championships on the weekend of the November 17th in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Here are a couple links to articles about Emily and her new team.

A Tragic End For Our Cowboys on Halloween

It was a dark and spooky night... Ooouuuuuu (use your best ghost sound here)...  Isn't that how most scary stories start?  We should have know that the dark forces of the universe wouldn't have let the good guys triumph on Halloween.  Our Cowboys fought bravely, however, undaunted by the foe that stood before them.  Alas, for the second year in a row, Wyoming fell to Alter in the Regional Semi-Final match.  The score ended at 14-25, 27-25, 14-25, 24-26.  They went 23-3 on the season.
Congratulations on a great run! 



It's always great to see the faithful out in force to cheer on the team.
Even Captain America, rumored to be Ali's brother, decided to spend the evening supporting our girls rather than spend the evening fighting that most heinous family of foes... "The Jawbreaker", his wife Dots and their sinister son Junior Mint.
Thanks to Rod Apfelbeck for these silky smooth, super-sweet (not semi-sweet) pictures from the match.
See even more HERE.
