Noah Harrison

CHCA - Junior

Noah, a junior linebacker and kicker for the Eagles, went 5-for-5 on extra points and added a 34-yard field goal against Cincinnati Country Day Friday night.

Maya Purdie

Summit Country Day - Senior

This was Maya's first year on the varsity roster and she was a great leader all season. Summit's successful 15-6 season began with the teamwork the girls showed on and off the court this year, and Maya had a big role to play in that. She was supportive of her teammates from the sidelines and on the court, as she filled many different roles (setter and defensive specialist). She worked hard to improve her game and stayed after practice to work on her serve. Maya led through her actions and words of encouragement - a true role model for the younger players and a pleasure to coach. Great season, Maya. We will miss you next year!

Brady Abbott

Brady, a senior, ran his best race-time of the season at this past weekend's District Meet and captured the twentieth and final Regional-qualifying spot.

J.D. Ray

Clark Montessori - Junior
Cross Country

J.D. has only been running for a little over a year. He ran his second consecutive race under 17:25, and after missing All-MVC recognition by one spot at the Conference Meet, claimed an individual Regional qualification at Saturday's District Meet. J.D. Did his part in enabling the Cougars to move on to Regionals as a team for the third consecutive year.

Jayda Coleman

CHCA - Junior

Jayda led the team in postseason play with 11 kills and a .400 hitting percentage. She also had a couple crucial blocks in each match.

CHCA Boys' Soccer Trio


Jack Riley was the leading scorer this season for the Eagles; and more importantly, was a mentor to the younger players and a positive role model for the whole team both on and off the field. Colin Lutts was a solid defender in the back that would give his all every single game, no matter what the score was, and was also the Homecoming King for CHCA! Ben Whitman was a leader who came off the bench and was like a second coach both on and off the field. He has a very strong personality and gave everything to the team each day.

Devon Hicks and Noah Harris

St. Bernard -

Devon, a sophomore receiver, had a great game this past weekend against Lockland. He had seven receptions for 130 yards. This was a season-high for him. Devon is leading the Titan offense in receptions on the year with 24 catches for 324 yards. Noah, a senior linebacker, led the defense last Friday evening with 15 tackles. He has had a phenomenal year and is leading the Titan defense in tackles on the season.

Dominic Wilcox

Lockland - Senior

Dominic had a superb game Friday with four interceptions on the defensive side of the ball and two receptions for 72 yards offensively.

Julie Reutener - Athletic Secretary, CCS

Cincinnati Christian -

Julie is the glue to the athletic department office. She is a friend to the students who come to see us. She is the connection to the needs of other schools when they call the athletic office. Julie has several duties that she does that go unnoticed by a lot of people because she does her job so well. She is always looking to help others, even when it doesn't involve athletics. She brings order to the chaos that happens on a daily basis. I am so thankful for her, and I don't tell her enough! - Steve Gillens, Athletic Director

Jaquan Emerson

Lockland - Junior

Jaquan rushed 210 yards on 19 carries, scored two touchdowns, and also threw for a touchdown in the Panthers' Gray Division-clinching victory over St. Bernard.
