Finally, thanks to everyone who helped make the 2017 FAB Affair at Great American Ballpark a fun-filled evening and a successful evening for our Foundation, Arts, and Boosters. This event helps support these three groups whose support is essential to our programs at the high school and junior high school as the cost of these programs continue to increase. Ticket sales can only cover so much, so the support of these groups helps us to continue to support the students and their interests. If you missed this year's event, hopefully you can join us next year for the FAB, the Boosters Golf Outing, or the Dad's Stag. For everyone who helped in any way, sales, preparation, decoration, planning,set up...THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Thanks for your support of Warrior Athletics! Go Warriors and #bebetter

Spring sports are now officially under way with tennis and track beginning today, and true to form, the nice, sunny weather we enjoyed late last week and over the weekend has turned in to a dreary, grey mess. But, spring is right around the corner and with that will be the games!
Congratulations to the Lady Warriors Basketball team who concluded their season last week with a 22-4 record, their second consecutive CHL Championship, a 28 game CHL winning streak, a sectional championship and a district runner up.
Congratulations to Riley Gullino who won two matches at the District Championship after finishing 3rd in the CHL and 3rd in the sectional championships.
Coming up, we have the winter sports awards night on Monday, March 13, beginning with snacks and drinks at 6:30 in the MHS Commons. We'll move to the gym for our larger presentation at 7pm.
Spring Sports Meet the Team Night will be Wednesday, March 15th. We'll have pizza and refreshments at 6:30 in the MHS Commons, and at 7pm, we'll meet all the members of the Spring teams in the Gymnasium. It's always a great night to see all of our athletes in one place at the same time.
Spring sports pictures take place after school on March 22. Look for order forms from your athlete's coach.
Finally, spring break begins on Friday, March 24th, and the whole school pretty much shuts down for the week. Before that happens, however, we'll have the following sports in action:

Usually when the tournaments start to roll around, the weather is getting colder, even though the days are getting longer. But this year, wow! One week it is freezing, the next week we're thinking about wearing shorts. Which all lays havoc on keeping our athletes healthy and playing. But is is nice looking out the window and seeing the bright sunshine.
Our swimmers opened the tournament season with the CHL Championships this past weekend. The girls swimmers and divers took their 4th coonsecutive league title, and are the 1st Mariemont team to win 4 consecutive league titles. A number of great swims were recorded, as the Warriors grabbed 5 relay 1st place finishes and 7 individual champions. Brooke Woellert, Ian Mikesell, and Cora Dupre had multiple individual championships. Cora Dupre was named female swimmere of the meet and Coach Kevin Maness was Coach of the Year. Next weekend, the swimmers head to Mason for the sectional championships. Boys on Friday, girls on Saturday.
The Lady Warriors basketball team wraps up the regular season this week. On Monday, we'll honor our seniors Carson Fields, Rebekah Justice, Audrey Theye, and Emma Worple as they host the Fenwick Falcons at 6 and 7:30. On Wednesday, the Lady Warriors host the Madeira Amazoons in a battle to determine the outright championship of the league. The Lady Warriors can capture sole possession of the crown with a win. Game times are 6 and 7:30. The squad defeated Deer Park, Ross, Reading and Finneytown last week.
The boys basketball teams have rebounded from their loss to Wyoming to defeat Deer Park and Goshen in tough wins Friday and Saturday. The team travels to Reading on Tuesday with the varsity and JV. The frshmen host Taylor on Wednesday at 430, and then the JV and Varsity are home on Friday for senior night vs Finneytown. The boys have a short turnaround before traveling to Seven Hills on Saturday at 4,530, and 7.

Yes, it IS that time of year when the winter season starts to wind down and the post season tournaments loom on the horizon. The Warriors have a lot to look forward to in the last couple of weeks of the season, and the swimming and diving Warriors have the post season this week. So let's take a look at where things stand today:
The diving Warriors host the CHL Championships this Friday in the home pool at 7pm. The swimming Warriors host the CHL Championships on Saturday starting at 11am. It will be crowded in the home pool, but the excitement should be at a very high level as the CHL excitement grows throughout the day. Both the boys and the girls teams are ranked 1st in the Enquirer poll this week.
The Lady Warriors basketball team had a great week last week, defeating Wyoming and Deer Park, and look forward to a busy week this week. The teams host Norwood on Jan 30 at 6 and 730, and with a quick turnaround, host Reading on Wednesday at 6 and 7:30 before traveling to Finneytown on aturday for a noon tipoff varsity only date. Senior Night for the lady Warriors will be Monday, Feb 6 against the Fenwick Falcons.
The boys basketball Warriors suffered a tough defeat at Indian Hill on Friday, and must recover in time to host Wyoming on Tuesday at 430, 6, and 730. The Warriors host Mason on the Freshmen level on Friday at 430 and the JV and Varsity host Deer Park at 6 and 730 in our GForce Coaches vs ALS game on Feb 3. The Warriors make the quick turnaround for Saturday as they travel to Goshen at 330,5, and 630.
Keep up with the Warriors on twitter @mmontad and for CHL action on www.chlsports.com. Be sure to catch a game or two, and see our great kids in action, being better.

Things are going well for our sports teams, and our athletes over the winter season.
Senior Joe Veeneman is a finalist for the National Football Foundation’s That’s My Boy Award for the Cincinnati Chapter, and is also a finalist for the Anthony Munoz Foundation Offensive Lineman of the Year Award. Jon Bezney was the last person we had nominated, and won the award. Hopefully Joe can as well. The recognition dinner for the award is Feb 28.
The girls basketball team is atop the CHL with a 9-0 CHL record and 12-2 overall. The team moved up a spot in the Enquirer D2 poll to 3rd, and is the highest ranked Cincinnati team I the poll. The team is at Ross tonight, Wyoming on Wed, and at Deer Park on Sat. Saturday game times are now 12 and 1:30.
The boys basketball team is in 2nd in the CHL after Friday’s win over Madeira. The team won the Patriot Invitational over Christmas Break by beating Eaton and Dayton Jefferson. The team has been flirting with the Enquirer’s top 10, and bounced up to 8th this week. The teams play Taylor at home on Wednesday this week,yes Wednesday, and travel to Indian Hill on Friday at 430/6/730. The team is playing very strong defense. We had a great crowd for Military Appreciation Night Friday, which was a statewide event, and we will have a Wipe Out ALS game on Feb 3 vs Mason (freshmen) and Deer Park for JV and Var.
The swimming and diving teams have been having sensational seasons. Divers Charles Schools and Kami Spang have set diving records this year, and Cora Dupre has broken 4 pool or school records so far this season. The medley relay missed the record by .07 of a second. The girls finished 3rd at the SW Classic, the highest finish ever at the Nation’s largest HS Meet, and are currently 2nd in the Enquirer poll by one point, and the boys have jumped to 3rd. Every meet, swimmers are setting personal bests and season best times. The CHL Championships are here on Feb 3 for diving and the 4th for swimming. It will be an outstanding meet.
The wrestlers had a good showing at Ross over the weekend with Drew Goheen and Riley Gulino taking 1st place. We have senior night here on the 12th with Madeira and Purcell Marian, and it was fun to have a match here, and to have senior night. The wrestlers have one more tournament and then have the CHL and Sectionals.
The Mariemont Sports Stag is February 2nd at the 20th Century in Oakley, and tickets can still be bought to hear Sean Casey. Contact AD Tom Nerl for details.
Come on out and see your Warriors in action and remember to Respect the Game!
