The 39th annual Mason Cross Country Invitational last Saturday was a perfect day as the Comet Boys ran a strong race finishing first among an excellent field of teams and runners. Mason finised 50 points ahead of its nearest competitor, Trinity of Kentucky.

He was followed closely by senior Tom Clark in 3rd overall. Senior Zac Thompson finished 3rd for Mason (9th overall) followed by senior Dylan McElhenney and sophomore Justin Koehler who finished close together to round out the top scoring places for Mason.

9/14 Covington Catholic Invite     B race only
9/21 Lousville Trinity Valkrie Invite 6th place  

The boys' cc team competed in the Trinity Valkyrie Invitational at Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville, KY on Saturday, September 21.

This was a midwest showdown with many of the best teams in the region present to run on arguably the fastest course in the area. Steady rain over the 12 hours prior to race time left a few muddy spots and several puddles on the course but overall the course remained in great shape and maintained it's reputation for giving runners fast times.

With several nationally ranked teams out of reach, Mason set it's sights on being one of the top Ohio schools in the race. The top 4 ranked schools in Ohio would compete against each other for the first time this season. Defending state champions, St. Xavier, Dublin Jerome, Mason and Hilliard Davidson all finished in the top 10 schools overall. The Mason boys finished a very respectable 6th place behind St. Xavier (3rd) and Hilliard Davidson (5th). The other schools in the top 6 were from neighboring states.

Every Mason runner ran their fastest time of the season thus far. Nick Grismer, Tom Clark and Zac Thompson were the first 3 Mason finishers, who all finished below the coveted 16 minute mark along with past Mason greats like Zach Wills (2011), Matt Kahl (2011) and Chris Rapp (2007). It was not the first time for Grismer or Clark but was the first time ever for three Mason runners to finish under 16:00 in the same race. Rounding out the 5 for Mason were Dylan McElhenney in 16:34 and Ryan Sanders in 16:36.

Next up the Comets participate in the Culver Invitaional on Saturday, Sept. 28th.

9/21 Cedarville University Invite      
9/24 Kings Invitational      
9/28 Culver Invitational 3rd place  

Mason has traveled to Culver Academies in Culver, IN since 2009 to compete against the best of Indiana and other area schools. Mason finished better this year than ever before earning 3rd as a team behind Carmel and Columbus North. Both are strong distance programs year after year. While the times were slower than normal, Mason finished very well and had the depth to beat out other schools.

Of note on the individual level were Mason performance leaders, junior Nick Grismer and seniors Tom Clark and Zac Thompson are consistently in the top 3 for Mason and did so again at Culver this year. Senior Lucas Sagraves filled in the very important 4th man spot for Mason and sophomore Jake Bauer completed the top 5 scorers for Mason. These guys stayed focused and got the job done in the tough part of the race.

It was a great step forward for the Mason boys' program at Culver. Below is a recap for the Mason runners:

Name     Time      Pace     Place


11 Grismer,Nick        16:00      5:09         7

5th place  

It was a bittersweet day for Mason Boys' cross country at the State Meet. The "sweet" was finishing the season as the 5th best school in the state! A tie with 6th place team Twinsburg was broken in Mason's favor as 6th man, senior Lucas Sagraves, was better than Twinsburg's 6th. St. Xavier repeated as the Division 1 Champion winning by an almost 60 point margin. Mark Hadley of Boardman was the overall individual winner with a time of 15:10.

Mason continues it's strong state placing tradition with this 5th place finish. For the 7th year straight, Mason has finished in the top 10 at the state meet, sharing that feat with only St. Ignatius. However, a quick glance at the team results reveal that Mason only had 6 runners cross the finish line, instead of 7. Mason's #1 runner all season, junior Nick Grismer, was unable to complete the race. This significantly crippled Mason's strength. But senior Tom Clark stepped up huge, finishing in the coveted top-16 overall group, in 13th place. He ran an incredible 15:49.

Mason's second finisher was senior Zac Thompson, also a veteran state runner. Next was junior Tommy Stewart, who while it was his first state meet performance, ran like he'd done it before, keeping a level head and moving up 6 places in the last mile. Fourth for Mason was senior Dylan McElhenny who did a great job maintaining position over the last mile. Fifth and sixth for Mason were sophomore Jake Bauer and senior Lucas Sagraves. Jake Bauer finished as the 16th best sophomore distance runner in Ohio and Lucas, in his first state appearance, made the difference for his team helping them secure the 5th place finish.

Congratulations to all 114 Mason runners who share a part of this accomplishment! We could not be more proud of you all for your efforts that made this accomplishment possible. Thanks to so many of you that made the trip to cheer on your team!

This weekend the Lady Comets saw their first race in the 2nd annual OHSAA preview meet. This is a meet that give athletes a chance to test their legs on the state course. This is a rare opportunity, although it is early in the season.

This year the schedule was very stretched out and our varsity group did not run until nearly 4:00pm. It was hot and sunny, but they fared well. The girls were led by our a young sophomore in Maegan Murphy. She lead the way with her third place finish, and was followed by another sophomore, Leah Ford who took 6th.

The girls also saw great production out of Kinsey McBeath and Nicole Steinbicker, both seniors who placed highly and helped lead the Comets to a strong win by nearly 80 points. Two freshman also represented well, newcomers Ailee Henderson and Ellie Brush both ran great and completed their first HS 5K in strong fashion.

This year the girls scored just under 50 points and had a nice pack of runners in the top 20. The team looks strong again, and is hopeful that they can pick up where they left off last year.

MASON GIRLS CC ADVANCES TO STATE!

The Mason Girls competed Saturday at the Regional meet in Troy. They were facing their toughest competition in Ohio in 2 years, as the Centerville, Beavercreek, Springboro and Ursuline Girls teams all were very loaded this year. The Lady Comets runners battled it out valiantly and had some great races, while some girls who had a what coach Dobson described as a "tough day at the office." Mason secured one of four spots that will advance to state by finishing 3rd overall.

Mason was led by Ailee Henderson for the first time in her HS career. She was followed by Ellie Brush, and Maegan Murphy. The team struggled across the line after a very fast start, but was able to hold off the charging Beavercreek and Springboro teams to hold onto 3rd place. Centerville was the overall winner, followed by Ursuline, with Beavercreek finishing fourth.

The Comet effort was helped greatly by the stellar races from Kinsey McBeath and Bethany Agnstadt who both placed in front of most teams 4th and 5th runners.

The team is healthy, focused, motivated and ready for the challenge as they head into next Saturday's State Meet at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.

MASON GIRLS CC WINS BACK-TO-BACK STATE TITLES

It was a great day to be a Comet on Satuday, November 2nd! With only two girls returning from last years team, the Mason Girls Cross Country Team won their program's 2nd consecutive Division 1 State Championship at the 36th Annual Girls Cross Country State Meet at National Trails Raceway.  The Lady Comets rebounded from their tough day last Saturday at the Regioinal competition (3rd) to finish "lights out" when it counted at the State Meet.

Mason girls ran fast times on the soft and slow course and were able to hold off the charging ladies from Beavercreek (2nd place). Mason came in first overall by a margin of over 30 points to beat out what many thought would be a battle with Centerville. Saturday was Mason's day though, as the Elks (4th) though did not quite show up. Annie Heffernan from St. Ursula (3rd place) was the individual winner with a time of 18:13.90.

Mason was led by Leah Ford, who ran to a strong finish and made the podium in 14 place.  Just behind her was the hard finishing Ellie Brush who also made the podium in 15th place.  

Saturday's championship was a total team effort.  The ladies had a great pack time (time from 1-5) and just kept coming across the finish line one after the other. Not far behind Brush was Ailee Henderson and then Maegan Muprhy, who fought through a challenging year to help her team out once again.   

In a fitting way, the Comets last and final scorer was Mason's only senior, Kinsey McBeath. Kinsey had a great race and helped her team by finishing ahead of every other school's 5th runner by well over 15 places. This was huge and helped seal the deal over the competition.   Erin Brush and Bethany Angstadt also did their part by
displacing several runners. In fact they were ahead of every other team's 5th runner at the entire meet.  

The Mason girls State Title was achieved by a total team effort. Each runner did their part, stepped up and helped the Comet cause.  This years team came together in an awesome and wonderful way to achieve an unbelievable 2nd State Title! Congratulations to all the Mason girls and coaches on a tremendous achievement!

The Mason Football Team got back on track in a big way last Friday night with an overwhelming 41-14 defeat of Middletown. Mason scored through the air, on the ground and on special teams in a game that started ugly and never got prettier.


Mason scored on all three possessions of the first half, turned a Middletown fumble into a score and returned a punt for a touchdown in taking a 28-0 lead. Meanwhile, the Comet defense was holding Middletown to four first downs and 133 yards in offense with three of the first downs and 79 of the yards coming on the final drive of the half when the Middies were stuffed from the Comet 1 on back-to-back plays.


Middletown finally got on the board late in the third quarter when EJ Colson busted outside and scampered 27 yards to trim the deficit to 41-7.

10/8 @ Lakota West tied 0-0 13-0-1 8-0-1

The Comet boys (8-0-1) won their fourth GMC Championship last night with a 0-0 standoff versus the 3rd ranked Firebirds (7-1-1). The tight, low-scoring affair came as no surprise. The only goal Mason has allowed this season was Sept. 12 at Hamilton. Lakota West has allowed only five goals. Mason has won six of 11 regular season and postseason meetings with West since 2005.

Mason got its first shot on goal at the 24-minute mark of the first half, but Jack Clark’s shot sailed high. Moments later, Comets junior Jude Iroh caromed a shot off the right post. The second half began in much the same manner, with neither team able to take advantage of its few scoring opportunities. After Mason was called for a high kick, a West player delivered a free kick toward the center of the goal, but it was deflected away by Mason senior keeper Spencer Parrish (6 saves). Iroh narrowly missed again moments later with a shot over the crossbar. Clark’s bicycle kick with less than three minutes remaining was the Comets’ last chance, and it sailed high.

“To survive a battle like this will help us,” said Comets coach Paul Reedy. “You’re going to have games like this late in the season. Inevitably it’s going to happen. We accomplished our major regular-season goal, which was to win the conference.”

The Mason boys (13-0-1) celebrated its first GMC back-to-back title since joining the league in 2007. The Comets, ranked No. 1 in the city and state polls, will play at home on Thursday night against GWOC champion, the Lebanon Warriors. They close out the regular season this Saturday at Fairmont.

BOYS SOCCER ESCAPES TURPIN TO ADVANCE

Comet fans at last nights Mason-Turpin boys soccer Regional Semi-Fina at Lakota East can take a big sigh of relief...at least for now. The Comets escaped with a 1-0 win over an extremely talented Turpin squad who threw everything they had at the Mason defense. The first ten minutes of the contest, the Turpin offense launched a barrage of shots on the Mason defense, many that could have easily found the back of the neck except for the outstanding efforts of the Mason backline and goalie Spencer Parish (8 saves on the night).

“(Turpin) put us totally on our heels the first 10 minutes,” said Mason boys’ coach Paul Reedy. “They had four or five corner kicks, three or four throw-ins that pinned us in, and our goalkeeper (Spencer Parrish) made a good save in the very first minute of the match.”

The Comets weathered the Turpin storm and late in the first half began to apply their own pressure to the Turpin defense. The first half ended 0-0. The second half the Mason mid-field and defense limited the Spartan's opportunities and continued to apply serious offensive threats of their own.

With 7:32 remaining Mason senior Eric Liddell's service throw in found fellow senior Josh Grant in front of the Turpin goal who headed it in for the only score of the game. The ball snuck in just beneath the Turpin crossbar. Grant ripped off his shirt and pogo’ed toward his teammates to celebrate. Mason's defense turned away a tremendous Turpin effort in the final minutes to secure the win and help the team advance to the Regional Finals.

The shutout was the teams 16th of the season and set a new all-time season record for wins for the boy's soccer program (19). This Saturday's Regional Final will be a rematch of last years championship. Lakota West (16-2-2) defeated Beavercreek on Tuesday night to punch their ticket to the Great Eight against the Comets. Last season Mason advanced for the first time to the State Final Four after defeating West in a 2-1 shootout.

Saturday's game promises to be another high stakes meeting between two storied programs who battled for a GMC Championship earlier this season. On October 8th they played to a 0-0 draw with a league title on the line. The contest is slated for a 12:00 start at Lakota East High School. The winner will advance to next Wednesday's State Semi-Final contest versus Olentangy Liberty/Dublin Coffman winner at a site to be determined.

MASON SOCCER TEAMS RETURN TO FINAL FOUR

The Mason Soccer Teams achieved unprecedented accomplishments Saturday as both the boys and girls programs once again earned trips to the State Final Four for the 2nd consecutive season. Last year Mason was the first Division 1 school to send both their high school soccer teams to the State Championship round of four. Mason had to overcome opponents who appeared to have the upper hand in the regional title matches at Lakota East. The Lakota West boys and St. Ursula girls gave the Comets everything they wanted and more, despite tough resilient Mason boys and girls defenses.

Comet Boys Win Dramatic Regional Title Match Against West

The Mason Boys Soccer Team is headed back to the State Final Four for the second year in a row. Sophomore striker Gary Zhao placed a perfect shot into the West goal with 5:33 left in the first overtime to help the Comets claim a 2-1 win over GMC foe, Lakota West, and earn a second consecutive Division 1 Regional Title. Zhao's goal surprised everyone after the ball ricocheted off the cross bar, struck the far post and angled into the Firebird goal, giving his team a sudden death victory..

“I got the ball. There was one guy in front of me, so I took a touch to the right and shot it. It was a dream come true,” Zhoa said.

Early on it didn't like Saturday was going to be a good day for the Comets. The Mason defense endured a barrage of first half corner kicks and short sided throw-ins by the Firebird offense. The Comet back line and goalie Spencer Parrish did their job, as they have all season, giving up only the fifth goal scored on the team in 2013.

Senior Jack Clark's strike with less than 8 minutes remaining in regulation put the first goal of the game on the board. Five minutes later West countered with a goal of their own (approx. 3 minutes remaining) to tie the game and send it to overtime. Before Zhao's heroics in OT, the contest looked like it might be a repeat of last year's Regional match, which Mason won on PK's.

"It was a classic West-Mason battle," said Mason head coach Paul Reedy. "The players laid it all out there today. I'm just so proud of our guys finding a way to win today. It's a great feeling."

No. 1 ranked Mason (20-0-1) advances to Wednesday OHSAA State Semi-Final against a familiar opponent. The Comets get a rematch against unranked Olentangy Liberty (16-3-1) who defeated Dublin Coffman in 2 overtimes to advance.

Last season the Comets lost to the Patriots 1-0, who then went on to win the 2012 State Champioinship. Wednesday's contest will be played at Centerville HS, with a 7:00 pm kickoff. The winner will play for a State Championship at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, Nov. 9th.

BOYS SOCCER TO MAKE FIRST STATE FINAL APPEARANCE

The Mason Boys Soccer Team will play for the 2013 Division 1 State Title this coming Saturday at a special 12:00 kickoff in Columbus, Ohio (see time change alert below). The Comets knocked off the 2012 defending State Champion, Olentangy Libert,y 1-0 on a rainy Wednesday night in the State Semi-Finals at Centerville HS. Senior forward Jack Clark added another highlight to his stellar HS career scoring the games lone goal in the early minutes of the 1st half.

Clark slipped through the defense with the ball, moved left parallel with the goal line and fired a shot back across his body that beat the Patriot keeper to the lower left side for his 30th goal of the season and a 1-0 lead with less than two minutes into the contest. The Olentangy defense had their hands full all night with Clark as he almost scored on two other opportunities in the 2nd half.

It was the Mason defense though that really puzzled and frustrated the Patriot players. The Comets dominated play for most of the 80 minutes, allowing Liberty to get off just one shot on goal, a weak header right to keeper Spencer Parrish in the 71st minute. Mason had lost to Olentangy Liberty (17-4-1) in the state semifinals last season and evenge was certainly a factor last night for the Comets.

"We knew Mason's offense was spectacular, but we're surprised by the qualifty of their defensive play," said Olentangy head coach Rick Collins.

Ranked No. 1 in the final state coaches’ poll, Mason (21-0-1) has allowed a mere five goals this season and Wednesday’s shutout was their 18th. The Comets will face the No. 3 ranked team in the state, Mentor (18-0-4), this Saturday at Columbus Crew Stadium. They defeated Whitehouse Anthony Wayne 1-0 in their State Semi-Final match.

GAME TIME CHANGE ALERT.....DUE TO MENTOR PLAYING IN THE OHSAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS THIS SATURDAY NIGHT....THE BOYS DIVISION 1 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME HAS BEEN MOVED FROM ITS ORIGINAL START OF 7:00 PM TO A 12:00 NOON KICKOFF.

Finished Business!


Mason Boys Achieve OHSAA Division 1 State Soccer Title
The Mason faithful displayed shirts that said "Unfinished Business" at the boy’s state soccer championship at Columbus Crew Stadium. After their 80 minutes of play last Saturday, they can now print shirts that read, “Finished Business!” The Comet’s achieved their school’s first State Championship in soccer with a thrilling 1-0 win over Mentor, before a large group of Mason faithful, at Ohio’s soccer palace in Columbus, Ohio. After losing in the final four in 2012 the team would not be denied this year.


As he has done all year, senior Jack Clark put the ball on his foot and made Mason soccer history. With 16:57 remaining in the game, Clark lifted a chip shot over the Cardinal keeper and into the back of net to score the game’s only goal. Clark’s goal was assisted by sophomore teammate Gary Zhao. But it wasn’t just Clark’s talents that sent the state trophy home with the Comets.


As they’ve done throughout the entire tournament and season, Mason’s defense shined as bright as Saturday’s crispy, but sunny Autumn day. The Comet defense and senior goalie Spencer Parrish allowed just one goal in the post season (5 on the season) and notched the team’s 19th shutout (school record) of 2013. As many expected Mason finished with an undefeated record of 22-0-1.


"I'm very proud of our players and how they represented our school, our conference and our city,” said Mason head coach Paul Reedy. “The city of Cincinnati hasn't had a state championship in quite awhile." 


The Comets had six shots overall and four shots on goal, compared to Mentor's two shots and only a single shot on goal. Both teams fought physically; Mason had 11 fouls and the Cardinals had nine fouls.


Mason is the first Southwest Ohio boy’s team to win a D1 State Championship since 1986 (Turpin, class 3A). They are also the first boy’s GMC soccer team to ever win at State. Lakota West won a girl’s D1 State Championship in 1999.


The senior class of Spencer Parrish, Sam Conkright, Charles Bramwell, Joshua Grant, Caleb Griffth, Conner Couchot, Harrison Taylor, Zach Lust, Eric Liddell, Marcin Zubrowski, Jack Clark, and Angel Tramontin finish their 4-year careers at Mason with an overall record of 67-11-5.


The All-Ohio Awards were announced and with no surprise Jack Clark was named Mr. Soccer and the Division 1 Player of the Year in Ohio. Senior defender Josh Grant earned 2nd Team All-State honors. For the second consecutive year Clark was also named the GMC Player of the Year (shared). Head Coach Paul Reedy received the GMC Coach of the Year recognition for the second consecutive season.


Mason was ranked by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America as the No. 1 team in the US in their final poll. The Comet’s were ranked No. 1 in local and state polls for the entire 2013 season.


Congratulations to all the players, coaches and Mason soccer fans on a season that will NEVER be forgotten!

About seven and a half minutes into the second half of the match, Knue found junior midfielder Jill Vetere, who dribbled to just outside the penalty box and fired a shot, over the outstretched arms of the Oak Hills goalkeeper and into the side net, making the score 2-0.

With about 3 and a half minutes remaining in the match, an Oak Hills player was fouled just outside the Mason penalty area and a free kick awarded. The free kick was taken from about 22 yards out and just left of center and placed into the upper 90 and beyond the reach of senior Mason goalkeeper Kelsey Harris, making the score 2-1.

Mason limited Oak Hills to five shots on goal, while taking eleven shots on goal during the match. Mason's goalkeeping tandem of sophomore Toni Bizzarro and senior Kelsey Harris combined for four saves in the match.

Fairfield (6-0-3) and Mason (7-2-0) will share the 2013 GMC Championship. Mason has now won or shared the GMC girls soccer title 5 of the last 7 seasons since entering the league in 2007.

In a match dominated by defensive and possession soccer, Mason managed eight second half shots on goal after only five in the first half while holding Lakota West to four shots on goal for the match. Both teams generated minimal opportunities to score in the first half, as both teams played solid defense and ball possession soccer and the first half came to an end with the score tied, 0-0.
 
Mason opened the second half with significant offensive pressure.  Almost seven minutes into the second half, junior Emily Calvani crossed the ball to the six where fellow junior Rachel Holloway headed the ball to the feet of senior forward Chloe Knue who quickly fired a shot for the only goal of the game and her thirteenth goal of the season. Junior midfielder Jill Vetere created several scoring opportunities during the game, particularly in the second half, only to be denied by solid goalkeeping from Lakota West.
 
The Mason defense, utilizing six different players and led by sophomore goalkeeper Toni Bizzarro (4 saves), limited Lakota West to one corner kick for the match and recorded their ninth shutout of the season.

GIRLS SOCCER RETURNS TO STATE FINAL ON FRIDAY


Tuesday night's Girls Soccer State Semi-Final match looked very much like a repeat of exactly what happened 12 months ago. Same team, location and same result....the Mason Girls Soccer team is heading back to the State Finals!
For the second year in a row, Mason scored in the first sudden death overtime period against Pickerington North to win a hard fought 1-0 victory and advance once again to play for their program's first state title.


In the 93rd minute of the match, junior forward Rachel Holloway beat her defender wide and took the ball to the endline quickly firing a centering cross that was slightly misdirected by senior forward Taylor Sheppard and directly across the path of the charging senior forward Chloe Knue. Knue, the leading scorer for Mason this year, knew exactly what to do with a ball crossing her path fifteen yards from goal - a one touch shot low and hard to the keeper's right and into the back of the net for the game winning goal.


The first half saw Mason talley five shots on goal, while limiting Pickerington to just three shots on goal. One of those was a penalty kick awarded for a foul in the box with about six minutes remaining in the first half that was saved by sophomore goalkeeper Toni Bizzarro. The first half ended as the game began, 0-0.


The second half was very much like the first half, with each team limiting the other's chances for quality offensive opportunities, with Mason again managing five shots on goal, while allowing Pickerington four shots on goal. After 80 minutes of soccer, the team's remained tied 0-0.


The first overtime period saw Pickerington create two solid scoring opportunities before Knue scored the game winning goal with just over two minutes remaining.
The Mason defense, anchored in the middle by juniors Meghan Grable and Dani Meyer and the midfield, led by junior Jill Vetere and sophomore Julianne Berry, played solid team defense throughout the match. They limited Pickerington HS North's quality scoring opportunities and held them to one corner kick on the evening. The defense recorded their fifteenth shutout of the year and Bizzarro recorded seven saves during the match.


The Comets advance to Friday’s championship game at Columbus Crew Stadium, where they’ll face Walsh Jesuit (19-0-3), which beat Rocky River Magnificat 1-0 in the other semifinal. Kickoff is set for 7:00 pm.

Mason (18-2-2) enters that title game with a streak of six consec­utive postseason shutouts and more than eight hours of playoff soccer without yielding a single goal.

2-0 18-3-2 7-2

Lady Comets State Runner-up!


The Mason Girls Soccer Team finish as the second best team in the State of Ohio in 2013, in what many thought would be a rebuilding year. The Lady Comets fell 2-0 to a very good Walsh Jesuit team on Friday night in the State Championship at Columbus Crew Stadium. The feat is a tremendous accomplishment considering the Lady Comets were the tourney underdogs and not expected to be back in the State Championship for the second straight year.
Jesuit utilized a combination of technical and physical ability to keep Mason on the defensive throughout much of the contest and limit the Comets offensive opportunities. The Warriors got on the board first in the 36th minute when Mason (18-3-2) could not clear the ball from danger and paid with the games first goal.

Set pieces set up the Warriors' second goal of the night in the 69th minute when a service was misplayed in the goal box giving Jesuit a 2-0 lead. In the first few seconds of the game, Mason had their best chance for a goal and early lead, but a hard shot went wide left. Mason had another great opportunity off a beautifully placed corner kick with 12 minutes left in the half, as a couple Comets had chances at it, but couldn’t finish it in. That would have tied the game at 1-1 and possibly changed the direction of the game.

‘‘They (Walsh) pressed us harder than anybody’s pressed us all year,’’ said Mason head coach Andy Schur. ‘‘Until you experience that level of pressure, it takes a little while in a game to adjust. They put us on our back foot a lot on Friday.’’

The Comets say goodbye to six special and talented seniors (Kelsey Harris, Lauren Harris, Chloe Knue, Alex Niehoff, Taylor Sheppard and Margo Walton) who accomplished so much over their four-year careers with an overall record of 69-11-7. A host of Mason underclassman got a taste of the “big stage” this season and will be ready and eager to bring their team back to the State Championships in the fall of 2014.

Congratulations to all the players, coaches and fans on a tremendous, never-to-be forgotten 2013 season!
