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.

Jake Hart finished 3rd with 13’0” in the rain-shortened pole vault event.

3/23 @ Springboro won 14-9 1-0 0-0

Mason Girls Lacrosse Team began their 2021 season with two solid victories against Springboro on Tuesday, March 23rd. The Junior Varsity kicked off the away action, brought the hammer at both ends of the field and celebrated the 10-2 victory!


Mason Varsity carried on in the same vein, with a solid character-building victory, 14-9. Always an aggressive slugfest, Mason got it going with a fantastic save by Sara Grove, methodical transition passing culminating in Lyla Glinski shooting the white, to give Mason the first goal of the game. In your face action ensued with both teams grinding it out and trading goals. Mason saw Zoey Miller and Megan Carroll put away one each knotting it up at 3 before Josie Young sent a ripper Free Position shot into the upper corner. Scrappy action continued with Lyla adding another and Claire Davis getting into the action with her own FP bringing it to 6-6. In the waning seconds, player emotions escalating, Boro eked out a draw control and converted to a goal to gain a 6-7 lead at halftime. Mason Girls find their composure and regroup.


Starting half #2, Mason comes out in high-pressure again, flustering Springboro and picking up yellow cards. Mason capitalizes, is relentless on the GB’s and get a nugget by Sydney Minick bringing it to 7-7. Refs are trying to regain control, which ironically plays into your Comets hand, still Mason goes down a player for the rest of the game. Offense now concentrating and controlled sees Syd grab the draw, finds Lyla down low who bangs it home for the one goal lead.


Defense-defense- defense; OMG Mason girls are crushing it!!! Get a takeaway, zippy passing with a nice Meg to Ava Mahoney score. 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. Mason now controlling the game, spreading it out methodically moving the ball burns clicks off the clock. Meg seals the deal with Mason’s 14th and your Comets come away with their first victory of the season.

Livy Ohler passed to an open Ava Mahoney to follow up with a second goal for the Comets. Elle Cimini and Sammy Connors scored back to back for the Comet's 3rd and fourth points.

The Cardinals come out swinging at the beginning of the second half, netting two goals and tying the game at 6-6. 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. Carroll comes back again bringing the ball from just under the 30 straight to the back of the net for the Comet's 10th goal, making the score 10-7. 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. The Comets move the ball around the top of the 8, and Megan Carroll connects with Lauren Stone, who sends the ball straight to the back of the net, winning the game for the Comets!

In the second half the Comets Junior Varsity squad stepped up to the challenge to get some runs in at the Varsity level. The Comets gained possession first in the second half, but with a save from the goalie the Highlanders were able to turn it over. JV defender Lexi Allen marked up on ball, then passed it off to JV Captain Avery Tavella, who held off a 1v1 drive for over a minute. Young took a push from behind to turn it back over for the Comets, and passed 40 yards up field to Lockhart. The Comets swung the ball on the offensive end, and on a goalie interception the Highlanders turned the ball back over. The Comets kept up the pressure on the redefend, Krugh and Stone doubling the ball to force a pass. Grayce Banks, the JV Offensive Captain got the ground ball to take it upfield. Carroll got the ball on the 12, and passed to a wide open Banks cutting through to score her first ever Varsity goal. The Highlanders gained the next possession, and Young took another hit on the defensive end to turn the ball over for the Comets. Erika Eller also took to the field on attack, and got the ball from Young to bring it to the eight. The Comets moved the ball around and on a knocked pass the Highlanders turned it over. On the defensive end LaSala picked up ball, with JV players Mia Maldonado and Katie Berold shutting down all the cuts as they came through. LaSala gained possession and passed to Mahoney to get it upfield. With a goalie save the Highlanders brought the ball upfield, but LaSala got the turnover and Maldanado snagged the ground ball. Maldanado got the ball to Connors and Connors got it to Minick to bring it up. Ohler got the ball at the top of the eight and passed to Young on the crease for the Comet's 18th goal. On a delay of game call the Comets gained possession in the circle. Stone got the ball on the top of the eight and passed to Lockhart who bounced the Comet's 19th goal home, ending the game 19-0 Comets. 


A shout out to the Comets Junior Varsity squad, both to the players who stepped up to play on Varsity (Mia Maldonado, Katie Berold, Lexi Allen, and Captains Avery Tavella, Brooke Paciolla, and Grayce Banks), and to the squad as a whole, who continued their winning streak with a shut-out victory against the Highlanders.
