Athletes of the Week

The ECC is recognizing Athletes of the Week at the middle school level.  Like our conference high schools, coaches will submit their student-athletes and each recipient will be posted here weekly. 

WEEK OF MAY 2-8

From the Loveland girls track teams, seventh grader Caroline Murnan has been an integral part of our 4x200 and 4x400 relay teams that are both currently ranked in the top eight in the state.  Caroline is a great kid with tremendous mental toughness.  Seventh grader Evy Scott battled an illness at the beginning of the season which caused her to have a late start to the season.  She came to practice every day once she became healthy enough to run and worked hard with a smile on her face.  She closed her season by running PR's in both the 100 and 200 meters.  We are very proud of her!  Eighth grader Kenzie Dunlap is closing the season on a high note as she PR'd in the 100 hurdles with a time that placed her in the top 10 in the state.  She is also the anchor of our 4x100 relay team which became our fourth fastest in school history and is currently ranked fifth in the state.  Fellow eighth grader Sophia Loomis is a coach's dream.  She is a hard worker who comes to practice every day with a smile on her face and who always thanks her coaches.

From the Loveland boys track team, seventh grader Jake Molas is having a spectacular season as he continues to improve in the 400.  His last run at the Little Miami Invitational saw him break the 57 second barrier for the first time. Seventh grader Michael Piposar is a kid who brings a smile to everyone's face.  A teammate of his put it best when she said, "How can you not smile around Michael?  Every team needs a Michael."  We couldn't agree with her more!  Eighth grader Gabe Albrecht has had a great year as a thrower but recently showed off his sprinting and jumping skills at the Kings All Run.  Gabe is a great kid who the coaches can always count on.  Tyler Jordan stepped in at the Little Miami Invitational when one of his teammates couldn't run.  He PR'd in the 200 meter dash and ran the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.  We appreciate you, Tyler!

The Nagel girls track team finished second at Little Miami Invite on Tuesday. Bridgett McKee was first in the 1600 meter run (5:44.82) and second in the 800 meters (2:35.62)- both PR's.  Claire Iaciofano was first in the pole vault with a vault of 7 feet. Emma Campbell was second in shot put with a PR throw of 31 feet 5.5 in. McKenna Johnson took second place in the 400 meter dash (1:04.58). The 4 x 400 relay team of McKenna, Harper Lehman, Marin Davidson, and Amina Divanovic finished second, beating their seed time by 9 seconds, finishing in 4:41.00.  The girls are looking strong heading into ECC this week! 

Nagel softball would like to congratulate Caitlyn Dehan, Bailey Funk, and Kennedy Compton for their awesome performances this past week. Caitlyn not only had one home run, but she had three home runs in one game. This also included a walk-off homer to win the game against Walnut Hills! Not only did she bring the bat, but she also pitched a great game. Bailey has shown outstanding leadership for our program by giving up her playing time in order to allow for other girls opportunities to play and supporting her teammates the whole way. She is the epitome of a great teammate and leader. Finally, Kennedy has made some tremendous catches in centerfield! She continues to work hard everyday, lifts up her teammates, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get better. Great job girls!

The Lebanon Maroon softball team Athletes of The Week are Sophia Sheidler, Ella Teubner, Jane Leuzinger, Skyler Perfetti, Lauren Buck, and Addison Lawley.  Sophia had another fantastic week on the mound for Lebanon Maroon with 40 strikeouts, with Skyler adding 19 additional strikeouts this week.  Sophia is cool under pressure and gives it her all, especially this weekend where she dominated both the semi-final and final games of the Gold Bracket End of Season Tournament.  Skyler brings a smile and enthusiasm to the mound while bringing her fastball.  Ella’s bat was hot this week, with three home runs, a triple, two doubles, and 16 RBIs.  Jane also had a great week at the plate with 11 hits and seven RBIs.  On and off the field, both Lauren and Addison display great sportsmanship.  Both young women hustle on and off the field, can be heard lifting up their teammates, and are an example of gracious winners toward their opponents.

Seventh grader October Von Bargen is making huge strides for the West Clermont Lady Wolves' softball squad.  In the past week of games (six games), October had four hits in 10 at bats.  She pitched five innings allowing only one hit and no runs while collecting 13 strikeouts.  October gives 110 percent during every practice and every game.  Her work ethic and positive attitude help to make her team stronger each day and every play of the game.

From the Lebanon White softball team, seventh graders Brianna Carter, Kaitlyn Burger, and Caitlyn Kober all had hits in the same inning boosting their team during a shutout win. Defensively, between the infield and outfield, the girls have had multiple putouts and assists. Carter, who made a comeback from an early in the season injury, has had two double plays and continues to always give her best effort with a smile. Caitlyn is one of the first ones to practice, works hard, has a “never give up” attitude, and has the loudest cheering voice. Kaitlyn is a leader on the field by calling the plays, keeping her team fired up, and off the field is so considerate by always checking on her teammates and coaches. All three of these Lady Warriors are amazing teammates and help make their team stronger every day!

From the Milford softball team, seventh grader Laine McCoy was picked as a team captain to start the season she has done everything she can to lead the team. She stayed true to her teammates in a season that had less victories than the team wanted, but she always stays positive. Laine led the team in all major offensive categories while playing great defense in the field at shortstop and third base.  Eighth grader Bree Newman is a pitcher for the team who has improved each time out on the mound. She has also improved offensively as the season has gone on. Bree is also a great team leader who leads by example with her hard work.

From the West Clermont track team, Gabe Bishop has worked so hard this year and has improved his time greatly and even hit a PR this past week in the 400 meters! Addison Gibbs really showed determination and grit when we had a team injury, she stepped up and filled the role without a complaint and did an excellent job! Peyton Korte is a great athlete, an encouraging teammate, and is always pushing himself. He continues to get better and better and he makes coaching easy with his optimistic attitude and desire to work hard every practice. 

WEEK OF APRIL 19-25

The Lebanon White softball team’s Athletes Of The Week are Kyra Heyser and Julia ThurstonKyra, a seventh grader, has earned and maintained the role of being the Lebanon Lady Warriors’ lead-off batter with her reliable plate presence this season. Her teammates can count on Kyra to get them started off right at the beginning of each game. Kyra adds solid defense at shortstop by having one of the highest fielding percentages on her team. Her relentless work ethic and positive attitude undoubtedly make her a prized teammate. Julia, an eighth grader, has had several putouts between left field and first base as well as assists. At bat, she has come through on key hits that produced valuable and timely RBIs. Julia exhibits toughness on herself, selflessness toward her team, and respectfulness toward her opponents making her a treasured teammate. Both of these Lady Warriors help make their team stronger every day!

This week against Little Miami, eighth grader Milford softball player Riley Biller was 1-for-3 with a home run and an RBI.  She also was 7-for-7 on putouts.

The Loveland girls and boys 800-400-400-1600  distance medley teams both broke school records at the West Carrolton Relays.  The girls' team consisted of Savanna Conliff, Caroline Murnan, Alyse Knapschaefer, and Suzie Cramer.  The boys' team was Luis Garcia-Saucedo, Jake Molas, Max Carver, and Nick Huff.  In more girls' results, seventh grader Ellie Tew has cut 14 seconds off of her 800 time since the beginning of the year and continually works hard every day. She is a great teammate who is always willing to step up at any time. Eighth graders Sammie Mason and Josie Cooper have shown tremendous work ethic and heart all season.  They are dedicated to improving in the 100 hurdles by asking questions about improving their technique.  We are very proud of them!  For the boys, seventh grader Gabe Dietz joined our throwers midway through the season and has quickly risen the ranks as one of our top discus throwers.  He's found a way to balance throwing and still find success in the 200 hurdles.  Fellow seventh grader Logan Shiverski has seen his 800 time drop by 13 seconds this season as he continues to impress his coaches with his hard work and dedication!  Eighth grader Wyatt Glassmeyer is a coach's dream.  He is hardworking, polite, respectful, and a great teammate.  Wyatt continues to work hard and has seen his 1600 time improve every week.  Great job!

Caleb Miller of West Clermont track team has been an excellent competitor, an encouraging teammate, and an amazingly coachable athlete. He comes to practice every day with a smile on his face and with a stellar work ethic. We couldn't ask for a better all around athlete!  Alex Creager had a great week. He recorded PRs in two different events. He even got first place in an event he had not done yet this year. We are so proud of him!  Calista Binning also had a great week. At our most recent invite at Clinton Massie, Calista placed in the top three of all the events she ran and jumped in. Excellent job Calista!

In this past week of games, eighth grader Natalie Jones and seventh grader Sophia Crutcher both had huge weeks for the West Clermont softball squad. Natalie continues to show her strengths for the Lady Wolves both defensively anywhere we put her and for having five strikeouts while on the mound in one game.  Offensively, Natalie had four hits in seven at-bats in our two games this past week.  Natalie is one of many leaders and brings a wealth of knowledge of the game that she continues to share with her teammates.  She is constantly helping them broaden their softball knowledge with every practice and play during the games.  Sophia started the year telling us that she was a “third baseman” - but she doesn’t recognize her own strengths and she is becoming one of our go to utility players.  Sophia has played shortstop, made huge plays in centerfield, and most recently become a very reliable first baseman. Her stats at the plate don’t reflect that she is going to be a force to be reckoned with when everything comes together for this up and coming leader of the Lady Wolves' team.  Sophia leads by a quieter example, but her never-ending hustle and ability to have quick hands and feet make her a player that others notice.

From the Lebanon Maroon softball squad, Kamryn Roddy made a game-winning putout behind home plate as a catcher this past week, which was an exciting end to one of our games.  Kaylee Jones earned five runs and had three stolen bases with her speed as a baserunner.  Sophia Sheidler and Ella Teubner sent the ball over the fences for a combined total of four home runs this past week.  On the mound, Sophia was able to deliver 54 strikeouts during the week's cold snap, delivering four big wins for Lebanon Maroon.  Both Lexi Williams and Makenna Hensley also had hot bats, with a combined total of 13 hits and eight RBIs.

PJ Daly plays first singles as a seventh grader for the Nagel tennis squad against some of the toughest teams in the city.  He has handled this tough position tremendously well! He stays calm and thoughtful on the court while he methodically breaks down his opponents.  PJ does not win matches with a waiting for his opponents to miss strategy, he wins matches because he makes his opponents miss with a well thought out attack plan that materializes as the match unfolds.  PJ will become even more of a force next year in eighth grade and later in high school.  

From the Milford track team, eighth grader Charlie Vause had a great showing at the Little Miami Invitational this past week. Charlie was the meet champion in both the 1600 and 800 meter runs. His performance helped the team to a third-place team finish out of 14 schools.  Seventh grader Camille Hutzel also had a busy and successful day at the Little Miami Invitational. Camille competed in three events (400 meters, 200 meters, and long jump) and placed in all three. Her top performance was a third-place finish in the 400 meters.  Camille's performance contributed to a sixth-place finish for the Lady Eagles.

WEEK OF APRIL 12-18

In the second week of games, Teegan Hughbanks is the true definition of a utility player and a force to be reckoned with.  On the mound this past week, she threw five innings and struck out 12 batters.  Behind the plate, Tegan threw out one trying to steal and didn’t let any balls past her.  She plays lights out defensive wherever we put her:  shortstop, second, third, or outfield.  Offensively, in four games, Tegan went 5-for-9 with a double, a triple, and a home run.  She had three RBIs and seven stolen bases to add to her amazing softball skills. Tegan’s skills go far beyond the softball field. She not only has a natural ability for the game of softball that any coach would love to have on their team, but her leadership qualities and advice to her teammates make her an integral part of the Lady Wolves team.

From the West Clermont track teams, the 4x100 meter relay team of Bo Rickman, Julian Hinkston, Hayden Jones, and Bash Hedger continue working hard and it is showing. They had another dominant run at Nagel on Tuesday taking first in the meet.  Sur Patel continues to work hard and PR'd at Nagel with a mile time of 5:45. So proud of his great work ethic and positive attitude during practice! Layla Mays swept the 100 and the 200 meter hurdles on Tuesday. It's evident that Layla is putting in the time and working hard, as she continues to get better and better in these events. 

Nagel boys tennis player Will Castlin is an eighth grade singles player, but Will is a very versatile player!  He is also a force on a doubles court!  So far this season, Will has played one doubles match and one singles match - he is 2-0!  Will is going to be a great addition to his high school program.

The Lebanon White softball team’s Athletes Of The Week are Mackenzie Gibbons and Jenna Callahan. Mackenzie has stuck out 20 batters so far this season and also has made several great plays at shortstop adding to her team’s great defense.  She shows leadership by working hard to be her best and always encouraging her teammates.  Jenna has quickly become a respectable pitcher and has not given up any walks yet this season and has struck out more than 1/3 of the batters she’s faced.  At bat, she has had five singles and a double.  Jenna’s positivity and kindness to all and coachable attitude make her a winner on and off the field. Both of these Lady Warriors help make their team stronger every day. 

From the Loveland girls track team, seventh grader Meredith Sicking continues to improve every meet in the shot put and just entered the top 10 in school history with a throw of 30' 10" as she won the shot in all three meets last week.  Eighth graders Susie Cramer has been a girl who is willing to do it all.  She has had lots of success in the 100 hurdles, high jump, 1600 meters, 800 meters, and running the 4x400 relay at our five meets so far this season.  She is a coaches dream who always says that she will do whatever we need with a smile on her face!

From the Loveland boys track squad, seventh grader Ronan Wolfer stepped up big this week when one of our top eighth grade distance runners got injured the day of a meet.  Ronan stepped in and ran a strong 1200 meters in the distance medley relay and then ran a PR on his leg of the 4x800 relay.  He continues to work hard and improve daily.  Eighth graders Brandon Waple and Charlie Hammer are two kids who are tremendous leaders as well as strong runners.  They were both leading scorers at the Centerville Relays and were the fastest two legs of the shuttle hurdle relay that took first.

From the Lebanon Maroon softball team, seventh graders Karina Jiveden and Addison Lawley had an amazing week in the outfield this past week with a combined total of 7-for-8 catches. Eighth grader Makenna Hensley pitched a six-inning shutout, only allowing four hits the entire game.  In addition, Makenna and teammate Payton Engles demonstrate positive leadership, on and off the field, in every game or practice; keeping everyone's spirits up every inning this season. We are very proud of both of them.

Milford seventh grade tennis player Owen Blair is a second singles starter for the Eagles who won a very close match against Kings in a third-set tiebreaker.

In the first week of the season, Milford softball player Haleigh Prenger pitched 5 2/3 innings and recorded six strikeouts.  She had a great week on the mound and at the plate.
 

 WEEK OF APRIL 5-11

From the Loveland girls track team, seventh grader Ny'omi Hill broke a 19-year-old school record with an impressive long jump of 16' 01.5" and eighth grader Reagan Jones scored 30 points at the Loveland Invitational by winning the 400 meters, high jump, and anchoring the 4x400 relay team.

From the Loveland boys track team, seventh grader Tyler Schwinn cleared 5'-10" in the high jump putting him at number-two in school history.  He has started his track career by winning the high jump, long jump, 100 meters, 200 meters, and 400 meters at his first two meets.  Eighth grader Nick Huff has started off the season by winning both the 1600 meters and 800 meters at the Harrison Quad meet and the Loveland Invitational and was the anchor in the first place finishing 4x800 relay team.

The Lebanon Lady Warriors White softball team’s Athletes Of The Week are Kennedy Jauch and Emma O’Hair. Kennedy is a power hitter who collected five hits during our first games.  She is a solid defensive player at third base where she has made several outs. Kennedy is a great leader and is inspiring when she gives 100 percent effort during every practice and game.  Emma has not only made a comeback from a setback injury as the season was starting, but she has championed at the plate including key single and triple hits.  Emma is a valued defensive player at first base and catcher where she has thrown out a runner at second base. Emma loves to play hard and has a great attitude. Both of these Lady Warriors help make their team stronger every day!

In the first week of games for the West Clermont softball team, eighth grader Bella Floyd went 3-for-5 while at the plate.  On the mound, she struck out 13-of-31 batters faced, only allowing one earned run.  Not only does Bella have the skills on the field in multiple positions, she is an amazing leader to her teammates since the start of the season during tryouts and practices.  She helps to lead the team in stretches, gives support to players on techniques, and always is encouraging.  She helps model drills and is always on the fence cheering on her teammates during games.  Another leader for the squad comes from eighth grade catcher Allie Cunningham.  Allie went 4-for-8 at the plate in the Lady Wolves' three games this past week and made key things happen offensively at pivotal points in the games.  Allie has been a huge asset to the team, protecting behind the plate and leading the team during the season.  She is supportive to her teammates, helps to lead stretches, holds others accountable in their actions, and always wants to know “what can I do differently to do better.”

From the West Clermont boys track team, Bash Hedger had a great meet at the Loveland Invitational. He placed in the top three for three events with 13 teams competing.  He scored second overall in the 100 meter dash, third place as part of the 4x100 meter relay, and first place in the long jump. 

From the West Clermont girls track team, Anna Downs is a stellar athlete, but unfortunately was injured early in our season. Anna is showing her teammates resiliency as she continues to push forward with her exercises and continues to encourage and cheer on her team even though she cannot compete at this time. We are so thankful for her positivity and encouragement even when she can't compete!

Nagel had two seventh grade girls win events at Loveland's Invite on Tuesday, their first meet of the season. Bridget McKee won the 1600 (5:45.54) and the 800 (2:37.39) and Claire Iaciofano won the pole vault clearing 7-feet. 

Ella Hartley and Ana Luthy of Nagel softball have really stepped up to show their leadership this past week. The two pitchers proved that they are prepared to face anyone in the box and are always willing to do whatever it takes for the team. They are leaders in the classroom, they lift up their teammates, support each other, and even go in the game after warming up for 10 minutes! These two have shown what it takes to be a Nagel athlete, and we are very excited to see what else they have in store for this season.

Lebanon Maroon softball team pitcher Sophia Scheidler dominated the mound with 32 strikeouts in two games last week, and she had a great week at the plate, going 7-for-10 with two doubles and eight RBIs.

WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4

Lebanon eighth grade Maroon softball player Ella Teubner began the season with a home-run, a triple, two RBIs, and four runs scored during our opening game of the season.  

The Milford track team had a great first meet at Lebanon!  For the girls, Camille Hutzel (seventh) and Gabby Bussa (eighth) took first and second, respectively, in their first-ever competitive long jump.  Ali Maglecic (eighth) finished second in the 1600 meter run and was the champion in the 800 meter run. This will be the first of many victories in Ali's future.  For the boys, Paul Dumont (seventh) had a strong start to his junior high track career, finishing second in the 1600 meter run, first in the 800 meter run, and was a member of the winning 4x400 relay.  Nate Carnathan (eighth) led the boys long jump, placing fifth.  The boys came away with the team championship!

WEEK OF MARCH 22-28

Our first spring Athlete of the Week is Lebanon eighth grade White softball player Ella O'Brien for her leadership and strength behind the plate, on the field, and as one of the Lady Warriors' power hitters.  Ella's work ethic, positive attitude, relentless effort, and most of all sportsmanship help make her team stronger every day.

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 8-14

Congratulations to the Winton Woods eighth grade A girls basketball team for finishing the season with a perfect 12-0 record and for winning the ECC Tournament Championship in their first season in the ECC.  This is Winton Woods Middle School's first league championship for the women.  This team, like so many squads, had to endure COVID 19 (having to pause and restart) and injuries. Out of the 12 games, there were very few games where the entire team was healthy.  Congratulations to Heaven Sneed, Sydnee Short, Micala Reese, Kailee Bransford, Darriana Alexander, McKenzie Jones, Jasmine Sibert, Jamie Barnett, and Caleita Young.  Congratulations also go out to Lebanon for finishing the regular season undefeated in their first season in the ECC.  Due to COVID 19, they were unable to compete in the ECC tournament.  With both teams finishing the regular season undefeated (they were unable to play each other in the regular season due to COVID 19 affecting them at different times), the women wanted to play one last game of their eighth grade year.  Shout out to the Lady Warriors for winning that final contest!

Milford seventh grade Red girls basketball player Riley Davania brings a top-tier mix of skill, quickness, and overall lead guard instincts. Electric as a playmaking point guard:  she breaks down defenders with ease, reads defenses effortlessly, and constantly makes the right reads. Riley is lightning quick and fearless driving and dishing, with fantastic one-on-one moves. She has a mental toughness that is simply unmatched and she will be a force in the ECC for years to come!

Maddie applies constant on-the-ball pressure and continues to be in position off the ball leading to steals and defensive stops.  She is also a leader in rebounding and scored in all three contests.

Milford seventh grade Red basketball player Avery Cook rebounds well and is a top-tier defender who hustles constantly on both ends. She constantly makes heads-up plays and looks for her teammates first. Avery possesses great quickness and agility and uses those qualities to play excellent defense. She is constantly making the right play instead of chasing the highlight play.  Tatum Caldwell is fundamentally sound, tough as nails, and incredibly hard-working; always giving everything she has out on the floor, showing superb confidence in herself. She comes into practice weekly with the mindset to better herself as a player and as a teammate. Her work ethic is a recipe for success in any program!

Milford eighth grade Red girls basketball player Caroline Codner is an athlete who never quits. She comes to practice and games every day ready to work hard. She has made huge strides in the offseason putting in the time on her own working on her ball handling.  Hadley Robinson is one of the most respectful players I have ever coached. Her integrity and kindness is always noticed by her teammates. Hadley has continued to improve her position in the low post. She has also developed quite a mid-range jump shot.  We are excited to see what these talented young ladies will do in the future!

Loveland seventh grade Orange boys basketball player Chase Martin recorded 20 points, 19 rebounds, 13 steals/forced turnovers, and a pair of assists in his team's two victories this past week.

Loveland eighth grade Orange boys basketball player Benjamin Tibbs had an outstanding week, leading our team in scoring and rebounding and anchoring our defense with his effort and communication!  His versatility and toughness have been a huge asset to the team on the floor, and his leadership and positivity have made him a great leader off the floor.  Great job Benjamin!

WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17

West Clermont seventh grade Navy girls basketball player Layla Hale scored 21 points against Nagel Silver this past week and also had many rebounds on the week as well.  Layla is a force on the floor scoring and rebounding each week.  Great job LaylaMeagyn Riffle provides the team with a great amount of energy on the floor at every practice and also in the games.  As a point guard, Meagyn is great at running the floor and creating openings and great options for her teammates for shooting opportunities. Great job Meagyn!

West Clermont eighth grade Navy girls basketball player Calista Binning had great defense while also adding 10 points for the Lady Wolves.  Great job Calista!

Loveland seventh grade girls basketball player Lorelei Sundberg continues to provide points and, more importantly, speed for the team.

Kings eighth grade A boys basketball picked up two wins this past week and received strong performances off the bench from Vincent Giordano and Peyton Young.

Kings seventh grade boys basketball team had two tough games this past week with Walnut Hills and Milford.  The Knights were led by Sammy Evans with some huge offensive minutes in the win at Milford! Defensively, the team was led by Jaxon Frisk who’s leading the way in charges taken this year! 

Milford seventh grade Red girls basketball player Ella Crompton has an incredible ability to lead by example and has shown all season why her teammates voted her captain.
