BASEBALL WINS DISTRICT CROWN Comets Advance to Sweet 16

The District titles just keep rolling in for the Mason Athletic programs. The Comet baseball team made it four district titles (baseball, softball, girls and boys track) in 4 days with their extra inning 1-0 defeat of Wayne on Monday at Fairmont. The win was unexpected, but not surprising considering Mason's postseason performance this spring. As the #19 seed in the Division 1 sectional, few gave them a chance to go far in the tournament after compiling a regular season record of 8-18. But after 4 sraight postseason wins, including their first District title since 2006, the Comets can certainly be classifed as the "Cinderalla" team of the tourney.

Mason achieved their latest accomplishment with outstanding hitting, stout defense and timely hitting. Sophomore Josh Galloway threw eight innings of shutout baseball, allowing only two hits and striking out 7. The defense made the plays behind Galloway to stifle the Warriors and send the contest to extra innings. In the bottom the eighth Rhett Durbin (2-3,) led off with a double. Chris Grable running for Durbin later scored on a sacrifice line drive by Scott Klever for the games only run.

Mason will advance to the regional semifinals on Thursday and will ironically face the last team who swept them May 8th in a double header (Lasalle). Sixteen Division 1 OHSAA teams are vying for a 2010 State Championship. Game time is set for 5:00 p.m at the University of Cincinnati. Ticket prices are $6.00.

Game Highlights / Notes

3/27 at Dublin Coffman won 10-5 1-0

High scorer was sophomore Courtney Curtis who stepped up to score 6 points on 4 goals and 2 assists. A trio of Comet players, Jaime Swigart, Madi Gilmore, and Kristy Dezenzo, scored two goals each. Trista Kuehn logged her first win in goal with 4 saves behind the solid defense of Amari Agee-Bell, Chloe Colton and Jen Curry.

Next game will be in Washington D.C. against the Midwest Regions top team, Loyola Academy out of Chicago.

4/8 Washington DC Trip     2-2-1

The girl's lacrosse team spent their spring break in Washington D.C. where they played 4 contests.

Although not the record we would have liked (1-2-1), the objectives of the trip were met. The objectives were so baseline our performance against some of the best girls lacrosse competition we could find and we had to go to Washington D.C. to do that. In D.C. the best team we would face was Loyola Academy from Chicago ironically enough, Loyola was travelling and wanted good games so they asked us to meet them there to play. The girls fought hard and played well but in the end yielded to Loyola 12-5. Senior Captain Madi Gilmore led all scorers with 1 goal and 3 assists while fellow Senior Jaime Swigart (2 G), and Junior attack Sam Dunn (1 G, 1A), added two points each. Loyola Academy came into the game as the defending Illinois State Champion and currently undefeated and top ranked team in Illinois this year.

In game two we faced the top team in Georgia, Milton H.S. and came out strong in the first half of play leading 9-3 at the half but yielded that lead in the second half and lost 16-14. Senior Captain Madi Gilmore once again led all scorers with 6 points on 2 goals and 4 assists, senior Jaime Swigart was second with 4 points (4 G), and Sophomore Courtney Curtis added 3 points as well on 3 goals.

In game 3 the girls put everything together and defeated a very good Stone Ridge School 8-7 in a game that was characterized by heavy defensive pressure all over the field. The Mason redefend was solid as was the defense led by Juniors Jen Curry, Payton Laws and Amari-Agee Bell. Laws filled in nicely for Senior starter Chloe Colton who had been injured in the Milton game. Senior Jaime Swigart took over the scoring role in this game and led all scorers with 5 points on 4 goals and 1 assist, she was followed by Madi Gilmore with 4 points on 1 goal and 3 assists and Junior Samantha Dunn was third in scoring with 3 points on 3 goals. Trista Kuehn earned her second win in goal.

In game 4 Mason faced a solid Holy Child Academy team and came away with a tie that almost wasn't. In the final seconds Mason was awarded a penalty shot; however, the Holy Child goalies stepped up big and iced the game that ended in a tie 13-13. Senior Jaime Swigart showed why she is earned all-state and all-american last year by leading all scorers with 8 point on 8 goals. Senior Co-Captain Allison Cryder stepped up big from the midfield to add 3 points on 3 goals, and 5 others had one point each.

The trip met its goals because the players have now seen the competition level they can expect to see in the second round of the playoffs and beyond this year. The goal is still to make the final four and the team feels like they have learned what they need to do to make that goal a reality by competing as they did this past weekend.

Next up the Comets will visit Anderson on Wednesday, April 14th.

           
           
4/14 at Anderson won 12-6 3-2-1

Senior Co-Captain Allison Cryder also added 3 goals.

The Mason girls defense led by senior Chloe Colton, and Juniors Amari Agee-Bell and Jen Curry, maintained pressure on the Anderson attack all night while Goalie Trista Kuehn earned her 3rd win.

The Mason Girls Junior Varsity Team also won their game 11-6.

Next up the Lady Comets visit Loveland on Thursday, April 15th.

4/15 at Loveland won 16-5 4-2-1

Not the prettiest game of the year, but you wouldn't know it by the score. Mason soundly defeated Loveland 16-5 bringing the Varsity record to 4-2-1 on the season (no JV game was held). With 3 starters on the bench with injuries, co-captain Madi Gilmore stepped up again and led all scorers with 5 points on 2 goals and 3 assists, and as with the previous game senior attack Sami Peterson was right behind her with 4 points on 2 goals and 2 assists. Senior Co-Captain Alli Cryder and sophomore midfielder Courtney Curtis each had 3 goals for the Comets. 3 other players had 2 goals each (Jamie Lawson, Falon Manns, and Belle Teesdale), and the Comet defense stepped up to limit Loveland's star midfielder, Katie Jarvis, to 3 points on the night.
