Jacklyn has scored four goals in two games this season and has one assist. She has had an excellent start to the new season.

Chelsea Carroll

St. Bernard - Junior

For the first time in a long time, the Lady Titans have started their season with two consecutive wins. This is due in huge part to the amazing defensive play of junior defender, Chelsea Carroll. Chelsea controls the backfield, while containing the midfield and starting offensive runs. She also has an assist under her belt from the Lady Titans' 4-1 victory over Purcell Marian. She is one of the hardest-working players I know.

Turner Anderson

Seven Hills - Senior

In the Stingers' three wins last week, Turner had five goals and a pair of assists.

Janel Bond

Summit Country Day - Junior

Janel scored a goal in her second consecutive game. After scoring the game-winning goal in the opening match last weekend, Janel evened the game this past Saturday against Worthington Christian with seven minutes remaining in the game to preserve a 4-4 tie.

Kaitlin Harden

Cincinnati Country Day - Senior

Kaitlin had an impressive Saturday at CCDS. She ran in the CCDS Cross Country Meet, finishing as her squad's top runner and seventh place before playing 80 minutes of soccer in a 5-0 victory over Mariemont. Kaitlin is a four-sport athlete at CCDS - soccer, cross country, gymnastics and track.

David Higgins

Cincinnati Christian - Sophomore
Cross Country

David set a personal record at the Moeller Primetime Invitational despite difficult heat and humidity. He was the sixth overall finisher among Division II-III athletes with a time of 18:27.

Laney Saggar

Seven Hills - Sophomore

Laney worked hard the off-season to capture the coveted first singles spot on the Seven Hills girls’ tennis team. This past week, Laney beat the number one from CCDS in an over two hours' battle in the season’s first 90-degree day. The next day, she defeated the number-one singles player from Summit in another long, hard fought battle in the heat. Both matches showcased the great sportsmanship from all three schools. Though Laney’s wins helped the team, her great role modeling and sportsmanship were more valuable.

Alicia Jenkins

Alicia went 19-for-19 serving with five aces and also had 13 assists in the Lady Vikings' first win against CCPA this week.

Cincinnati Country Day -
Cross Country

According to head coach Merle Black, all the Indians runners ran well. "I was thrilled by freshman Bobby Flynn and sophomore Max Luebber’s races - their first varsity cross-country competitions. Max easily broke twenty minutes and Bobby was just over the twenty minute mark. Both varsity squads finished third out of five teams. Charlie Sachs and Connor Wiley, our captain, finished in the top ten out of 85 runners. Kaitlyn Harden completed the race of the meet - she is a strong 800 runner in track and she demonstrated her speed by blowing by a number of runners in the last 100 meters to finish seventh."

Mark Smith and Erik Kohlan


Mark, a junior, has three goals in the Silver Knights' first two games, including a short-handed game-winner over Yellow Springs. Erik, also a junior, has three goals and one assist in Summit's first three games (one goal per game), including one goal and one assist in a 3-2 win over Yellow Springs and one goal in a 2-1 loss to Dayton Christian.
