OTCA State Finals

@ Reynoldsburg HS

       

COMET BOYS TENNIS WINS THIRD STRAIGHT STATE TITLE!

The Mason Tennis dynasty continued Sunday at Reynoldsburg HS. The Comets defeated New Albany HS to claim their programs third consecutive OTCA State Championship.

or the Comets, the day came down to one match against New Albany. After junior Vignesh Gogineni won first singles 6-2, 6-0, senior Sam King/ junior Varnshi Singidi won first doubles 6-4, 6-0.  New Albany split their state champion doubles team from the day before, so Ryan Mudre of New Albany took second singles 6-2, 6-1 over junior Akshay Joshi.

Then, the New Albany doubles team of Dhruv Chavan/Declan Freedhoff prevailed over senior Atharva Rao/junior Anish Gangavaram in three sets, leaving the third singles match of Mason senior Eric Tang and New Albany's Ben Belinko to settle the day's festivities. Tang had played doubles earlier in the day when Mason advanced past Findlay. 

"It was 2-all right as Tang was going into his third set," Mason coach Mike Reid said. "It was just really intense tennis. Everyone was yelling and screaming and it whooping it up."

At that point, everyone was gathered around one court at Reynoldsburg. Reid said Tang was pumped up and minutes later his efforts were rewarded. 

The senior brought it home for Mason, albeit in three sets over Ben Belinko 6-4, 5-7, 6-2, giving Mason the match 3-2. Afterward, Tang was hoisted up by his teammates.

"It was quite a finish to a great season," Reid said. "That's why the boys were carrying him. We kind of figured the season might come down to Tang at the end, at least I did. I was trying to inspire him in practice. Sometimes kids can get lazy where they don't see the future and that match when the whole state championship is on the line. I think he got the message. He played a pretty inspiring match."

3/27 Wayne Metric Relays 4th place
After missing the 2020 outdoor season the Mason Boys T&F Team was looking to give everyone a opportunity to race in the Wayne Metric Relays in order to see what we have for this year.

The boys scored points in all but two events on the day which showed good team depth and finished fourth place in the tightly contested team scoring. 

“The boys got over some nervousness of their first competition, experienced some of race pain which they don’t get in practice and learned some things about their fitness in order to better prepare for their next races” according to Coach Pitcher. 

Some note worthy events were the 3 mile relay (Aiden Amshoff, Kyle Harrison, Patrick Theisen & Jerry Xu) who won the relay. Jake Hart opened the season with a PR of 13-6 in the Pole Vault for second place. 

Next up for the team is:
Wednesday, April 7 - JV meet at Mason
Friday, April 9 - two meets..Waynesville Invite and the Coaches Classic at Ross

 

 

4/9

Coaches Classic

@ Ross

 

The Mason Boys T&F team split the roster and brought home two Champion trophies after the rain-delayed competitions on Friday night in Ross and Waynesville.


It was a solid season opener for the boys as many PR’s (Personal Records) were set in the first meet of the season.  “These new PR’s should give the boys a lot of confidence heading into their next races,” Coach Pitcher.


While we are a young and inexperienced team after losing last season due to Covid, we found that we have a lot of depth in many events which allowed us to bring home the two winner’s trophies as we competed against everyone else's full varsity teams.  This depth should help the boys develop at practice as “iron sharpens iron” and not rest on their past accomplishments knowing that there are others who are training for the top 2 spots for the postseason.

Coaches Classic Team Champions

Aiden Amshoff won the 3200m in 9:36 with a fantastic last lap of 64 seconds.

Brendan Pitcher won the 800m in 1:57 and Jacob Messer was 3rd in 1:59.

Brady Messer was runner-up in the 1600m in 4:30 after passing 3 opponents on the home stretch.

Kahari Land Brandon was runner-up in the 110H in 16.09 and 6th in the 300H with a 43.48.
Jake Hart finished 3rd with 13’0” in the rain-shortened pole vault event.

4/9 Wyanesville Invite  

 

4/16 Xenia Invite    
4/16 Centerville Invite  

The Mason Boys T&F team was busy at both the Centerville Relays and Xenia Invite last Friday night.  At the prestigious Centerville Elks Relays Mason was fourth as a team and just two points out of third place. 

The boys won the Distance Medley Relay (Brendan Pitcher, Kyle Harrison, Brady Messer and Aiden Amshoff) and the same four runners came back later in the evening and were runner-up in the 4x800 relay. The 4x400 relay of (Kahari Land Brandon, Mir Ashraf, Justin Fedders & Patrick Theisen) and the 300m and 110 Shuttle Hurdle relays of (Jack Carey, Max Liao, Bradley Hurst-Davidson & Kahari Land Brandon) each placed in the top 3.


At Xenia, we placed 7th against some of the top teams in the Dayton area with a lot of Personal Records set by our boys.  We were runner-up in the 4x800 relay and 3200m with Dylan Plouffe (10:10.38). 

"We were pleased with the progression that we are seeing with all the boys this past week.  We need to see it continue as we focus on preparing our relay teams and identifying the individual events for the postseason," Coach Pitcher

The team will have a few days of training before Thursday's competition with the Varsity at the Anderson Relays while the JV competes at West.  Then on Friday night, the team will split between the Anderson Invite or at the Rally's Relays at Elder.
4/22-4/23 Anderson Invite 2nd

The Mason Boys continue their progression to the postseason with solid performances with a runner-up at the Anderson Invite and third place at the Elder Rally’s Relays.  


At Anderson, we opened the meet with a season PR in the 4x800 relay and set a great tone for the rest of the meet.  The 4x100 and 4x400 each cruised to victory and only a bad exchange in the 4x200 prevented us from the relays’ sweep.


Irasen Borders won the 100m along with Austin Erickson with a fifth place finish.  Alex Derousell finished 4th and Brendan Pitcher 5th in the 1600m with both setting outdoor PR’s in their season debut of the event.  Mir Ashraf continued his improvement with a nice PR in the 400m.  Kahari Land Brandon improved from his close runner-up finish in the 110 hurdles to win the 300m hurdles along with teammate Jack Carey grabbing the team some points with his 6th place finish.  Both Jerry Xu and James Mroczka broke the 10:00 minute barrier for the 3200 and added new PR’s. Aiden Markich continues to rapidly improve in the steeplechase with his 3rd place finish.


In the field events, Jake Hart had another solid performance with a 14’ clearing jump in the Pole Vault to set a new personal record.  In the Long Jump, Justin Fedders tweaked his leg on his first jump, but it was good enough for 6th place.  Ben Lampe secured some points for the team with his 6th place finish in the high jump and Ollie Carr lost the tie breaker and finished just out of scoring points.  Josh Stahlman continues to show consistency in the discus with his 7th place finish.


Highlights from the Elder Invite were winning the 4x800, coming in runner-up in the 4x400, Aiden Amshoff in the 800m and Justin Fedders in the High Jump with runner-up finishes and Braeden Fedders and Keith Neuberger finishing 1-2 in the 3200m.


Boys Track and Field will have a busy week as the JV finishes their season tonight at Sycamore before they travel to crosstown rival, Kings, on Tuesday.

After a wet and cold Wayne Invitational the Mason Boys walked away with many podiums over the course of two days along with many PR’s (personal records) throughout the various events.


Mason saw PR’s from Patrick Thiesen (400), Alex DeRoussel (800), Brady Messer and Keith Neuberger (1600), Braeden Fedders (3200), Justin Fedders and Kenntez Ware (Long Jump), Jackson Harper (Shot Put), DMR, 4x100, & 4x200


The team now prepares for the prestigious Mason Rod Russell Invitation where we will have four boys in the Bizzarri Mile which will have some of the nations top runners competing.

5/7 Mason Invite  

We had a great Mason Rod Russell Invite this past Friday night.  While the weather was spotty at various times the boys competed hard against some of the top competition in the state and our GMC opponents. 


The highlight of the meet is always the Angela Bizzari Mile.  We had the deepest field and saw many of our boys set Personal Records in the race. Brendan Pitcher ran a 4:18.16 and Brady Messer 4:22.00 which put them #3 and #6 on the all time Mason 1600m list.


We saw Ben Lampe have a breakthrough in the high jump with 5-10 along with Justin Fedders and Kenntez Ware (PR) both hitting 18-8 in the long jump.  We need points from each of these jumpers if we are going to win the GMC’s this week.


Our sprinters of Mir Ashraf, Austin Erickson, Irasen Borders, and Zach Rogers continue improving each week and the relay teams move up in the rankings.


We are now ready to defend our GMC title this week.  On Wednesday we start the prelims and the 4x800 final where we will compete against the defending Indoor State Champions.  On Friday, we have all finals to determine who the best in the conference will be. 

Mason Boys have won the GMC Title 12 consecutive seasons daing back to when they entered the league in 2008.

Come out and support the Mason Comets as we compete on our home track!

GMC

@ Mason

2nd place

The boys of Mason started off the GMC with a win in the 4x800 relay (Brady Messer, Alex DeRoussel, Jacob Messer and Brendan Pitcher) against the defending Indoor State Champions in a new GMC meet record time of 7:52.46 and currently the fastest time in the state of Ohio.


Throughout the championships the boys were setting personal records in many of the events like the 100m with Irasen Borders, the 400m with Mir Ashraf along with both of our sprint relays of 4x100 and 4x200.  Aaron Spears and Joshua Stallman went 2-3 in the discus throw,  Brady and Jacob Messer also went 2-3 in the 800m as did Alex DeRoussel and Brendan Pitcher in the 1600m.  We had runner-up performances by Jake Hart in the Pole Vault and Skylar Horn in the Shot Put. While Aiden Amshoff and Keith Neuberger battled for 3rd & 4th in the 3200m. 


But at the end of the day, the Sycamore Aviators scored more wins and points to break our streak of GMC Track and Field Championships of 12 years! With only a few seniors on the team next year looks very promising for Mason to reclaim the title and start a new streak!


Mason Boys Track and Field will be seeking their 12 overall District title today and Friday as Mason hosts the Southwest District Championships. The preliminaries begin tonight and finals on Friday.


Qualifiers from District to Regional: four (4) in each event, boys and girls. Qualifiers from Regional to State: four (4) in each event.

District

@ Mason

3rd

The District Finals is always a roller coaster of emotions as athletes see their season come to an abrupt end or extend another week and compete in the Regionals Track and Field Championships at Wayne High School.  This past weekend was no different as we saw state leading teams drop batons and Mason runners rising to the challenge!


The team had a very respectable third place finish 92.33 points in what is considered the toughest T&F District in the state of Ohio.


On Wednesday we saw the 4x800 Relay (B Messer, Alex DeRoussel, Jacob Messer and Brendan Pitcher) finish second with a 7:53 and advance to one of the deepest regionals for the 4x800 relays with over half the field already running under 8:00’s.


On Friday night, we saw Ben Lampe start the meet off with a PR of 6’1 and fourth place finish which qualified him on and Justin Fedder jumped 5’8.  Earlier in the meet Fedder’s had long jump 19’4.25 for seventh and Jacie Deaton was 8th with a jump of 18’10.75.


In other field event action Owen Summers Pole Vaulted to a new height of 11’6 while senior Jake Hart unfortunately rolled his ankle in warmups and was unable to compete.   In the Discus, Aaron Spears 129’2 and Josh Stallman 128’6. In the boys Shot Put Skyler Horn placed fifth with a PR throw of 46’11 and Jackson Harper was seventh with 44’7. 


Senior Kahari Land Brandon ran PR’s in both the 110 and 300m hurdles to win each race and advance. Jack Carey finished his season strong with a 42.80 for seventh place and a new PR.


While the 800m relay (Land Brandon, Mir Ashraf, Austin Erickson, Irasen Borders) was out leaned at the finish line and placed 5th, the 400m relay team (Jacie Deaton, Borders, Sayeed Garnett and Erickson) had a strong finish for 2nd and will advance to the Regional meet this Wednesday evening.


In the open events we saw some amazing performances.  Nathan Mountain of St. X set a new District record of 4:05.54 in the 1600m followed by Alex DeRoussel in fourth with a 4:19.21 to advance while Jacob Messer ran 4:38.  


In the 400m, Mason scored valuable points from Ben Comatas ran 52.10 for sixth place and Mir Ashraf ran 53.45 in 8th.  


The 800m saw a new District record by Alex Justus of Kings and Brendan Pitcher finishing runner up with 1:54.08 and Brady Messer was fourth with 1:55.38 and both Comets continued to set new PR’s each week.


In the 3200m Aiden Amshoff ran a smart race for fourth and advanced with a 9:45.34 and Keth Neuburger finished ninth in 10:04.

Next is the Regional Championships with state berths on the line. The Meet will be held at Dayton Huber Heights Wayne HS on Wednesday-Friday.


The first four individual or relay teams in each event in each regional tournament will qualify for state tournament competition. In addition, the next two (2) best times, distances, and heights statewide in each event (running and field events) will be invited to the state meet as well.

The OHSAA Division 1 State Track and Field Championships will be held June 4 -5 at Hilliard Darby HS.

On Friday night Brendan Pitcher battled the weather and the competition to finish runner-up in the boys 800m with a 1:58.40 and advanced to the State Championships on Saturday afternoon at 3:45.  Brady Messer made podium and earned team points with his 8th place and time 2:00.30


Kahari Land Brandon PR’ed in the prelims of the 300 m hurdles with a 39.76 and in the cold and windy finals placed sixth with 43.64 just outside of the top four automatic qualifying spots.


The 4x100 relay team of Jacie Deaston, Kahari Brandon, Sayeed Garett and Austin Erickson earned some valuable team points as they saw their post season come to an end with their seventh place finish in the Regional Finals.


In the rain soaked 1600m, Alex DeRoussel contributed to the Comets total points with his seventh place finish.


Aiden Amshoff finished his season with a night place finish in the 3200m race in one of the deepest regions in the state of Ohio.

OHSAA State

@ Hilliard Darby HS

 

The Mason Boys T&F season has come to an end after competing at the State T&F Championships on June 4th and 5th at Hillard Darby HS.


While the boys 4x800 relay team (Brady Messer, Jacob Messer, Alex DeRoussel and Brendan Pitcher) came in with the second fastest time of the season just behind St. X both teams had problems in the often chaotic State Finals.  St. X saw their lead runner go down 600m into the race while Mason had an exchange problem between the first and second runners which was interrupted by another team that set us back behind the pack.  The boys fought back and made the podium with an eighth place finish.


In the boys 800m, Brendan Pitcher finished tenth in the state!  Brendan finished his Mason career #2 in the outdoor 800m with a PR of 1:54.08 and #3 in the 1600m with a 4:16.46.  He also anchored the #3 4x800 relay and leadoff leg in the #3 & #4 timed DMR’s. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE MASON ATHLETES AND COACHES!

Mason carrying big MO on her shoulders, has Lauren Stone speed in for a ripper. Mason leading 10-8 again sees the defense and goal tending rise to the occasion and shuts down Boro. The result is a nice series of clearing passes with yet another by Lyla. Meg garners another, while Boro picks up a GB that squirted free and slings a few times before getting their 9th. Sara groups, and steps up with another stellar stop, fires a clear 50 plus yards finishing with a Stone to Carroll to Glinski shot to extend the lead to 13-9.

The defense once again dominated the field, holding the Cardinals off for a solid 5 and a half minutes straight. The Comets get the turn over and take the ball down the field for a shot from Lauren Stone, making the score 7-6. Off the next draw the defense completely shut down a fast break, and were able to pass it up the field for Claire Davis to make the score 8-6. The Cardinals were able to get a shot off making the score 8-7. On their second attempt Grove makes the interception and the Comets get the ball up the field to Megan Carroll, who shoots the white scoring a 9th goal for the Comets.

The Cardinals are able to make another 3 goals before the clock hits zero, sending the Comets into Overtime. 

With 3 minutes on the clock it's sudden victory, the Comets hearts are racing as the Cardinals get the ball off the draw. Sara Grove makes an interception and passes it up the field, but the Cardinals regain control off of a check. Grove comes up with the ball again, and the Comets pass it all the way up the field, Grove to Katie Bangs, Bangs to Jenna Harris, Harris to Ashlyn Lockhart.

5/27

Regional Final

vs. Loveland

lost 11-10 18-4 9-1

Mason Girls Lacrosse bid to advance to state fell short last Thursday with a heart-breaking 11-10 loss to Loveland. The Comets (18-4) finish their stellar season as Regional Runner-up and GMC Co-Champs.

The game started and finished very back and forth. Just a few minutes into the game it was 2-1 Loveland. Then they were tied at 3. Every second of the game counted with Loveland and Mason constantly scoring a goal to tie or one-up the other team.

This proved true all the way to the final 5 minutes of the game with Carly Wilhoite (senior) scoring Loveland’s 10th goal and Mason scoring their 10th goal shortly after.

Josey Storm (senior) shot the team’s winning goal after the team ran the clock down to 2 minutes. These final minutes afterward were extremely frantic with Mason pushing for a goal to tie the game and Loveland trying to run the ball until the time would run out.

With just 12 seconds left, Mason’s goalie launched the ball to her teammates when Elly Steinbrunner (sophomore) jumped in from defense and intercepted the ball. Unfortunately, a time-out was called by Mason’s coach before Elly got the ball, so Mason still had the ball in their possession.

At this point, there were 7 seconds left in the game, but the time was reset back to the 12 seconds before the goalie threw the ball. Loveland and Mason huddled up to devise their strategies for the final seconds of the game. Mason still had a chance to tie the game up.

Mason ran straight to the goal, but unfortunately for them, shot the ball way too far. After being passed the ball, Maggie Nance (senior goalie) held it for the final 3 seconds. Thus, the Loveland Women’s Lacrosse Team beat Mason 11-10, winning regionals and moving on to the semi-finals.

The Tigers will be playing the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks at Mason High School on Wednesday, June 2nd. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE PLAYERS AND COACHES ON A TREMENDOUS SEASON!
