Thought of the Week

Being kind = being happy. Happiness is partially gained by contributing to the cycle of goodness. By being kind to someone else, you create joy in yourself.

As musician Jon Batiste says, “You’re never too important to be nice to people”.

7th Grade Volleyball:

The 7th grade volleyball team had another successful week with their last two regular season games. Last Monday, the Cats defeated Jones in their final home match with incredible defense from Addi Nadler and Lexi Tracy.

On Wednesday, the team travelled to their last away game against Dublin Sells. They brought home the win with excellent serving from Sophie Smith and Avery Asp.

And on Saturday in the tournament, the girls put up a great fight for the opposing team, but ended up losing the first game. But the cats had great hitting from Mia Garnett, and some great setting from Maddy Lahmers, and Katilin Chenalt. In the second game, the cats had some amazing offense from Zowi Murphy, and Leah Perez. Great job this season!

Flex Volleyball: 

The 7th Grade Flex Volleyball put up a fight against Heritage last Tuesday but unfortunately didn’t win. They had great plays from all the girls, great games Cats. They took on Marysville Bunsold last Wednesday but also fell short. They put up their best fight against them with great effort from everyone. Huge thanks to coach Baker for making this team possible.

This past Tuesday both Cross Country teams had a meet against Dublin Karrer. The girls kept their undefeated streak going! Finishing in the top five for the girls were Erica Kaulen, Sara Bettinger, Gemma Pusateri and Sofia Tartaglia. The boys fought hard but were defeated 38 to 21.

On Saturday’s meet at Thomas Worthington High School, the girls earned 2nd place behind Dublin Grizzell. This was the last full team meet for the season. On October 24th, the top 7 runners for boys and girls will compete at States. Good luck Cats!

Boys’ Soccer:

The Boys’ Soccer Team lost in the tournament quarterfinals against Wellington, who was the host of the tournament. The Cats played hard, but ended up losing by a score of 4-0. The squad for this year played excellently this season

Girls’ Soccer

Last week, the girls soccer team saw their season end in the semi-finals, where they were defeated by the number one ranked Grandview team. The Cats played their best in the first half, as Maria Feicht and Lucy Drobik lead the attack, but could not quite get the ball in the goal.

In the second half, a combination of injuries to Abbie Burroughs and Rose Hickey and the Cats pressing to score allowed Grandview’s skill to dominate the match, and they pulled away to win. It was a tough end to an excellent season. Thank you for supporting your Cats! Vamos Gatos!
