National Hispanic Heritage Month
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th. This month-long celebration is a time to honor the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The timing of Hispanic Heritage Month deliberately overlaps with several Latin American Independence Day celebrations. September 15th was chosen as the kickoff date since it coincides with the Independence Day celebrations of five countries (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua).

Last week was a busy week for the girls golf team! They played Marysville on Monday and came home with a win! On Thursday, they lost a tough one to Big Walnut to finish the regular season with 9 wins and 4 losses. On Saturday, the girls played in the Central Ohio Middle School Golf Championship.

The girls Flex Volleyball team has been on a roll lately, winning their last 4 games. In their last game against Patriot Prep they won the game in the just 2 sets. Addie Nadler and Avery Puffer led the team in serving aces. Jade Studer and Vivian Tangman played awesome on the net. And Kelsey Hickman and Selah Wellman were fantastic in the back row. All of the girls are improving greatly and really growing as a team. This week they play away at Marysville and at home against Heritage.
The 8th grade football team defeated Dublin Sells Thursday by a score of 22-6. The offense scored their first touchdown with a long run by Noah Johnson followed by a converted 2 point try by Charles King who also scored the 2nd and 3rd touchdown of the game. The defense played a physical game, holding Sells to only 6 points, capped off by an interception by Cassie McCue.
The 8th grade team will travel to Dublin Davis next Thursday. Go Cats.
The 7th grade football team had a big win Wednesday night, defeating Dublin Sells 46-6.
The Cats dominated the game on both sides of the ball. The offensive line stepped up their game, led by Gryffin Fraker, Kellan Bullen, Colby Haupt, Oliver Huff, and Colt Ewing.
Defensively the Cats stopped the run game almost every play and recovered a fumble. Brayden Moore had an interception to shut down their passing game as well. This was a great team win! Go Cats!
The Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country teams both earned wins over Dublin Sells on Tuesday!
For the girls, shoutouts go to Katherine Jacobs and Stella Somerlot for HUGE improvements on their Personal Records! On the boy’s side, Will Harris continues to drop time and Drew Hiestand ran a very impressive personal best time! More races to come! Go Cats!
The boys’ soccer team played 3 games last week. Against Heritage, they won 1-0 on a goal scored by Dominic Collura. This win claims the title for the champion of Hilliard middle school soccer teams! In a tough match against Grandview, they lost 2-1 in grueling fashion, as they were very close to earning the win. In their match against Hastings, they jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half on goals from Sebastian Sanchez, but became complacent and allowed Hastings to score twice before the game was called due to weather. The Cats enter their final week of the regular season before seedings are finalized for the tournament. Go Cats!
Last Saturday, the girls’ soccer team won against Heritage, 4 to 1. Lucy Drobik scored all four goals as the attack held possession and Lucy took advantage. Monday was a different story when the girls hosted a talented Grandview team. Sydney Coates gave the Cats the lead early, but the Bobcats unfortunately dominated from there. On Wednesday against Hastings, the Cats scored 3 goals and gave up none! Lucy Drobik scored twice and Dani Fleming also did. The second half goalie Olivia Sykes was aided by Miley Dusseau, Lila Shriver, Presley Abbot, and Olive Hoctor in preserving the shut-out. The Cats return to action Monday when they host rival Jones. Vamos Gatos!
The boys’ golf team played well Wednesday against Grizzell, but dropped a close one.
