WRESTLING:  Loveland won the 2017-18 wrestling tournament title, the school's fourth ECC title in the past five years.  This winter's ECC Tournament is scheduled for January 25 at Milford HS.

FOOTBALL:  Congratulations to Milford (seventh grade) and to Kings (eighth grade) for winning ECC gridiron titles this fall!  Both squads finished the season with perfect 7-0 ECC records.

BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL:  The Eastern Cincinnati Conference doesn't sponsor middle school baseball and softball, so check with your school's athletic department personnel for schedules and results.

BOYS' AND GIRLS' TRACK:  Loveland won both the boys' and girls' track championships in 2017 and repeated the feat this spring!  I believe the Tigers have won the boys' and girls' titles for six straight years!  Shout out to Walnut Hills (4x100 relay) and to Nagel (4x200 relay) for setting new boys' records.  Loveland's Jessie Gibbins set a new record in the 800 meters!
