Let's Look At That Again

We reported on the Girls' Lacrosse lumping of McAuley on April 27th.  But such a big win deserves a second look, a double-take if you will.  And in making it a true double-take, we have double the pictures for you.
The pictures above came from Peter Levick.

Cowboys clawed by the Wildcats.

Friday, May 26th, the Girls' Softball team were defeated on the road by a tough Finneytown team 2-12.  They are now 3-6 in the CHL and will stay on the road as they are hosted by Madeira on Monday, April 29th for a 4:30 game.  Come out to watch the win!
Compare the picture above with the one below - just like Sesame Street - one of these things is not like the other...
Before you think I'm picking on the Finneytown catcher, know I'm not.  I admit I couldn't do it.  I would get tossed from the game for distracting the batter as the plastic knee guards knocked together.  But it helps to really show the bravery of our own catcher.  Noticing the Cowboy catcher's intent gaze and calm confidence is pretty inspiring.
Thanks to Rod Apfelbeck for the great pictures.

Girls Win Nail-Biter

Skip Koesterman sent us the Softball mid-week in review:
On Monday, (April 21st) the Cowboy’s played a tough game (featured in today’s Cincinnati Enquirer) versus Reading. In a close contest, Reading prevailed 2-0.
Today, (April 23rd) the Cowboy’s played New Richmond. New Richmond had a 5-2 lead into the latter parts of the game, however are Cowboy’s continued to fight back and tied the game in the very last inning of regulation (the seventh inning). In the ninth inning, Clara Merton drove home Olivia Munneke with the game winning run and a 6-5 Cowboy victory.
The Girls host a strong Finneytown team this afternoon, Wednesday, April 24th at 4:30. 
Come out and show them your support.
Thanks again to Skip Koesterman for the report and the great pictures.

Clean Sweep In Miamisburg

From Coach Denson

The MS boys lacrosse team traveled to Miamisburg on Tuesday April 23 and won both games, 8-5 in the first game and 6-3 in the second. In both games the Cowboys jumped out to an early lead and then played tough defense down the stretch. Grant Mellott and Brooks Brunke both saved fifty percent of the shots on goal. In the first game, Cole Engel and Connor Yauss each posted a hat trick, and Max Frankel and Nick Denson each scored one. Cole Engel, Alex Thompson, and Max Frankel contributed assists. Connor Yauss led the team with 8 ground balls. In the second game Christian Robles, Max Frankel, Jackson Klug, Declan Dunehew, Brayden Matlin, and Nick Denson each had a goal, with assists from Christian Robles, Cole Bradley, Declan Dunehew, and Cole Engel. The final Cowboy goal showed why lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet, with Brunke passing to Dunehew passing to Robles leading to a score in four seconds. Daniel Shapiro and Christian Robles led the team in ground balls with five each. The Cowboys face Centerville at home on Thursday April 25.

Football Meeting

I posted a picture of someone preparing food for the masses at an outdoor sporting event yesterday.  Sure they were pancakes and not hot, juicy burgers, but I think I awoke the Football gods.  Coach Hancock sent word about the upcoming Football Parent Meeting. 

I'm not sure if refeshments will be served, but there will be lots of Gatorade come Fall.

Football Parent Meeting:
Thursday, May 9th at 7pm in the Pendery Auditorium at the High School

Reading Ruined at The Ranch

Varsity DOBO, John Brown has a knack for delivering the good news

Today (April 22nd) was a big win over Reading, 4-2. This was our first win over Reading in 3 years, thanks to the pitching of Michael Kelly. Kelly pitched a complete game, allowing 5 hits and just one walk. Henry Moore went 2-3 with 2 RBIs, and Will Marty went 1-2 with 2 runs scored.

Max Power

The Wyoming Living article about the 5K Fun Run was great.  We noticed that the overall 5k Winner was Sophomore Max Hoffman.  Max is off to a great year.  It's only April and he's already earned 4 season or personal best times this year (according to Milesplit). 
In an exciting "Look What's Around The Bend", the Female Overall 5K winner was 8th Grader Kamaria Walton. 
Successfully smashing all stereotypes about "those who can - do, and those who can't - teach", Wyoming Track Coach Greg Knickle took top honors in the Mens 60+ class. 
Not to be outdone, our own Wyoming Ultimate Frisbee Coach George White sailed in with the best time in the Mens 50-59 class.
Is there any sporting event where Wyoming doesn't try to cook outdoors?

Also, there was a blurb for the Boys Track win at the Coaches Classic that included a sweet shot of Junior Terrell Dailey.

Not to be left out, the Girls' Lacrosse Team got their props for the 7-2 whipping of Indian Hill.

Finally, the Boys' Lacrosse team got a write-up for their heartbreaker against Milford on April 10th, that included a nice shot of Junior David Moody.

Jackrabbits Unstoppable in Ultimate

From Coach George White
The Wyoming High School varsity Ultimate team, known as the Jackrabbits, shook off prom cobwebs Sunday to beat a previously undefeated Turpin team, to run their record to 6-0, winning 11-10 on a sparkling "Universe Point" grab in the endzone by senior Khafra Flynn on a long throw from Senior Eric Reichwein. It was Khafra's fifth score of the day, and Eric's seventh scoring throw. The Cowboys turned in a solid team effort, with strong defensive play from seniors David Weinrich and Katie Scholles, among others.
This year, the co-ed high school Ultimate program, which competes in the 28-team Cincinnati high school Ultimate league, has more than 50 players, and has a varisty and reserve team. The reserve team dropped a 12-5 decision to Moeller/Mt. Notre Dame today (April 21st) to drop to 2-4.
Wyoming will complete the regular season next Sunday (April 28th), with the varsity playing Clark Montessori at 1 and the reserve playing St. X/Ursuline Academy at 2:45. Both games are at the Rec Center, and the public is invited. The season-ending tournament is Saturday, May 4 in Lebanon
