The Comets opened the 2018 season on the road in a GMC matchup at Middletown on Monday, March 26th.   The Mason offense plated three runs in the second and three more in the third before erupting for eight runs in the fifth en route to a 15-2 win over the Middies.

Rollie Sheriff (1-0) got the ball for Mason and was impressive in his four innings of work, allowing no runs and three hits while striking out seven.  Evan Kemp pitched the final inning for Mason and struck out the side after the Comets defense allowed a couple of unearned runs to score.

@ McCracken County

TN

won 2-0 3-0 2-0  
Mason kicked off their 2018 Spring Break trip in Murfreesboro, TN on Friday night, March 30th and things could not have gone much better for the Comets.  Behind a dominating performance on the mound from senior Will Pfennig, Mason defeated McCracken County, a 2017 Kentucky State Regional Champion, by a final score of 2-0.  Pfennig tossed a complete game 2-hitter, recording 13 strikeouts on the night.

The Comets scored both of their runs in the fifth inning.  Mason Holloway led off the inning with a base hit, was advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Harrison Johnson, and moved to third on an infield ground out. After a walk to Max Johnson, Joe Powell ripped a single to left field to score Holloway.  Nick Northcut followed with a another single to left field to score Johnson.
3/30

@ Riverdale

TN

lost 3-1 3-1 2-0  
The Comets faced another tough opponent in the nightcap of their doubleheader on Friday night, March 30th, facing the tournament host Riverdale, TN on their home field.  With the game tied 1-1 in the fifth inning, Mason committed a couple of costly miscues on the infield in the fifth inning which ultimately led to their 3-1 defeat.

Nick Northcut started on the mound for Mason, pitching the first four innings. He allowed an earned run on just two hits while striking out four.  Despite pitching well, Rollie Sheriff (0-1) suffered the loss for the Comets.  He allowed an earned run on two hits while striking out four.

Like the host Riverdale Warriors, the Comets could only scratch out four base hits on the night in a well-pitched game by both clubs.  Following walks to Max Johnson (who stole second) and Nick Northcut in the third inning,  J.P. Sponseller delivered a one out sacrifice fly to drive in Mason's lone run in the game.
3/31

@ Munford

TN

won 9-7 4-1 2-0  
Mason closed out their 3-day Tennessee Spring Trip with 9-7 win over Munford (TN) to finish 2-1 on the trip.  

Kevin Uth (1 and 2/3), Kenyon Abbott (2 and 1/3) and A.J. Kraus (3 inn.) combined to limit Munford to seven hits on the day.  It was Abbott's (1-0) varsity debut on the mound and he came away with the win. Kraus earned the save, his first as a Mason Comet.

The Comets jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and were in control throughout, scoring three more times in the fourth, one in the fifth, and two in the sixth.  A balanced attack on offense by the entire Comets squad was highlighted by:

Max Johnson:  3-4 QAB's, 2 RBI's
Joe Powell:  3-4 QAB's
Colin Crowe:  3-4 QAB's, double, RBI
Ben Kraus:  3-4 QAB's, RBI
Nick Northcut:  4-4 QAB's, RBI

4/2 Princeton won 9-1 5-1 3-0  
Thanks to the generosity of the baseball staff at Miami University, the Comets were once again able to avoid a rainout on Monday and play their home game vs. Princeton on the Redhawks home turf field in Oxford, OH.  After scoring one run in the first inning, Mason exploded for six runs in the second and coasted to a 9-1 win.

Patrick Lantry (2-0) got the start and win for the Comets, pitching the first five innings.  Lantry allowed four hits and no earned runs while striking out six.  Nick Niehoff pitched the final two innings in relief, allowing one earned run on two hits while striking out three.

Weather permitting, the Comets (5-1, 3-0) travel to Princeton TODAY (April 3) for game two of their two-game GMC series with the Vikings.
4/5 @ Princeton won 8-2 6-1 4-0  
The Mason offense struck quickly on a cool Thursday afternoon, plating four runs in the top of the first inning as the Comets coasted to an 8-2 win at Princeton to complete a two-game GMC series sweep.  

In the Mason first, Joe Powell led off the game with a single, one of his three hits on the day - including a double and two RBI's.  Nick Northcut followed with a walk (his first of three in the game).  J.P. Sponseller hit a single to load the bases with nobody out.  Evan Haas then delivered the big blow of the day - a laser shot over the left field wall to put the Comets up 4-0.  Haas finished with two hits and five RBI's on the day.

Rollie Sheriff improved to 2-1 on the season with the win, pitching the first five innings.  He allowed no earned runs on just two hits and struck out seven.  A.J. Kraus came on in relief to pitch the final two frames for Mason.  Kraus allowed an earned run on two hits and struck out one.

The Comets, currently 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the GMC,  return home Friday, April 6th at 5:00 PM to begin a two game series with Colerain.
4/6 Colerain won 8-0 7-1 5-0  
For the second game in a row last Friday at home, Mason jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning.  The Comets rode another dominating performance on the mound from Will Pfennig to blank Colerain at home by a final score of 8-0.

Pfennig (2-0) delivered a carbon copy of his performance down in Tennessee a week ago, fanning 13 Colerain hitters as he pitched a three hit complete game shutout.  As Pfennig walked off the mound after striking out the side in the first, virtually everyone in the ballpark and both dugouts knew the Cardinals had their hands full today.

The Mason offense fed off of Pfennig's energy on the mound and went to work quickly.  Singles by Joe Powell and Nick Northcut, an RBI double by J.P. Sponseller, RBI singles from Evan Haas and Mason Holloway, and an RBI triple from Cole Harting highlighted the Mason first inning as the Comets sent eight hitters to the plate.  The Comets would go on to add single runs in the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth inning.

Mason remains at home for a key GMC matchup against Lakota East on Monday, April 9th at 5:00 PM.
4/9 Lakota East lost 5-4 7-2 5-1  
On a cold Monday afternoon in Mason, a bazaar first inning in which Lakota East scored four runs on just one base hit proved to be too much for the Comets to overcome as they dropped a GMC game at home to the Thunderhawks by a final score of 5-4.   

Nick Northcut (0-1) suffered the loss on the mound for Mason as he battled hard for five innings to keep his team in the game.  Northcut allowed two earned runs on just two hits while striking out eight and walking four.  Kenyon Abbott turned in another solid performance in relief, tossing two scoreless innings.  He allowed just one hit and one walk, and struck out two.

After the tough first inning, Mason battled back all day to make this a close game right to the end.  The Comets plated two runs in the fourth to cut the East lead to 4-2.  After East picked up a single run in their half of the fifth, Mason scored two in the bottom of the fifth to make it a 5-4 ballgame. The Comets had two runners on base in the bottom of the seventh, but could not muster a late rally.  Leaders on offense today for Mason:

J.P. Sponseller:  2 for 3, triple, two runs scored
Nick Northcut:  3 QAB's, double
Ben Kraus:  3 QAB's

The Comets travel to Colerain on Tuesday, April 10th to attempt a sweep in their two-game season series with the Cardinals.  Mason is currently tied with Hamilton for the GMC lead with a 5-1 record in conference play.
4/10 @ Colerain won 8-2 8-2 6-1  
The Mason offense continued it's trend of solid production early in games.  That, combined with excellent pitching earned the Comets a two-game series sweep over Colerain as the Comets won on the road Tuesday, on another cold spring day, by a final score of 8-2.

Rollie Sheriff moved to 3-1 on the season with the win, pitching 4 2/3 innings.  He allowed no earned runs and struck out seven.  Patrick Lantry pitched the final 2 1/3 innings, allowing just one earned run while striking out two.  Both Mason hurlers made great pitches in tough situations today to strand Colerain base runners, eliminating chances for big innings.

After jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first, the Comets continued to keep pressure on Colerain all afternoon as they gradually widened their lead.  Leaders on offense today included:

Joe Powell:  2 for 3, double, SAC Fly
J.P. Sponseller:  2 for 3
Cole Harting:  2 for 4
Harrison Johnson:  3 for 3
Max Johnson:  2 for 3
Evan Haas:  pinch hit double

The Comets travel to Lakota East on Wednesday, April 11th in search of a split in the season series with the Thunderhawks in what will be an important GMC showdown.
4/11 @ East won 12-1 9-2 7-1  
Following Monday's tough one-run loss at home to Lakota East, the Comets were definitely ready to complete last Wednesday as they rolled in to East with starting pitcher Will Pfennig for the back half of their two-game GMC series with the Thunderhawks.  Pfennig (3-0) and the Comets took care of business in pounding Lakota East in six innings by a final score of 12-1.  With the win, Mason took over sole possession of first place with a 7-1 record in conference play, 9-2 overall.

Pfennig pitched the first five innings today, allowing just a first inning earned run and one hit on the day.  He struck out ten.  A.J. Kraus pitched a scoreless sixth, recording one strikeout.  As a pitching staff, Mason's team ERA is an impressive 1.38 on the season thus far.

Trailing 1-0 through two innings of play, the Mason offense kicked in to high gear in the third.  Following walks to Harrison Johnson and Joe Powell, Nick Northcut delivered a big two-out single to left to tie the game at 1-1.  J.P. Sponseller immediately followed with a two-run double to deep right field to put the Comets up 3-1.

The Comets played long ball after that to pummel the Thunderhawks.  In the fourth, Nick Northcut hit a three run bomb that traveled half way to Middletown.  That same inning, Harrison Johnson lined a pitch over the 395 sign in straight away center, a two run homer.  After a single run scored in the Mason fifth inning,  J.P. Sponseller hit a towering three run homer to right field in the sixth to make it a 12-1 ballgame.

Mason next plays Hamilton (currently one game behind the Comets in the GMC) at 7:30 PM on Thursday April 12th as part of the Cincinnati Reds Futures Showcase Series.  The game will be played at Marge Schott Stadium on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.

4/12 @ Hamilton won 4-2 10-2 8-1  
Behind a solid pitching performance from Patrick Lanty and Kenyon Abbott, Mason held on to win a thriller over Hamilton Thursday night at University of Cincinnati's Marge Schott Stadium as part of the Cincinnati Reds Futures Showcase Series.  The final score was 4-2.  With the win, the Comets retained sole possession of first place in the GMC with a 8-1 record (10-2 overall) at the mid point of the GMC league schedule.

Patrick Lantry was the Comets starter tonight and got a no decision, as he left the game with one out in the fifth inning with the score tied 2-2.  Lantry's line on the night: four and 2/3 innings, two earned runs, four hits, and six strikeouts.  Kenyon Abbott (2-0) earned the win in relief for Mason, pitching the final two and 2/3 innings.  Abbott inherited a two on, two out situation in the Hamilton fifth.  After issuing a walk to load the bases,  Abbott got the next batter to ground out to second to keep the game tied at two apiece.  He would go on to pitch two more scoreless innings, allowing no hits while striking out three.

The Mason offense was stymied for much of the night due to a solid performance by Hamilton starter Eric Roberts, who came in to the game with a 2-0 record and a 1.17 ERA.  Trailing 1-0 in the third, Joe Powell reached on an error and Nick Northcut walked with one out.  An RBI single by J.P. Sponsellerand a SAC Fly from Evan Haas put the Comets up 2-1.  Hamilton tied the game at 2-2 in their half of the fourth.  And, that is where things remained until the seventh inning.

Cadin Neuhaus pinch hit for Max Johnson to lead off the Mason seventh and drew a walk.  After Johnson re-entered to run for Neuhaus, Joe Powell put down a perfect bunt single.  One out later, a wild pitch put runners at second and third for J.P. Sponseller, who was intentionally walked to load the bases.  Evan Haas then hit a ground ball to short with the shortstop throwing to the plate for the force out - the second out of the inning.  Cole Harting then hit a chopper to a charging shortstop.  Hustling down the line, Harting beat the throw to drive in the go ahead run.  In the process, Hamilton's shortstop threw wide at first, allowing a second run to score on the error.

For his efforts at the plate tonight (2 for 3, RBI, walk) as well as his defense in centerfield, Cole Harting was named the game MVP by the staff of the Cincinnati Reds Futures Showcase Series.

It was a special day for the Mason Baseball team on Tuesday, April 17th. The Comets opened up a two game lead in the GMC and their head coach reached a career milestone.

It was another outstanding performance by the Mason pitching staff on a cool spring day, coupled with yet another productive first inning from the offense added up to a 5-0 shutout of Hamilton at home to earn the Comets a sweep of the two-game series.


Will Pfennig (4-0) was masterful on the mound again for the Comets, pitching six innings and striking out twelve.  Kenyon Abbott continued his solid season in relief, pitching the final inning and striking out two.

In the Comets' first inning, Joe Powell and Nick Northcut led off the game with singles.  J.P. Sponsellerimmediately followed with a 3-run homer.  Mason would add another run in the first to lead 4-0.  And, Pfennig and Abbott took it from there.  Leaders on offense for Mason included:

Nick Northcut:  2 for 2, 3 QAB's, double
Evan Haas:  3 QAB's
Mason Holloway:  3 QAB's, RBI

4/18 Fairfield won 14-4 13-3 10-1  
In a rather bizarre game on Wednesday that was tied 2-2 as the Comets came to bat in the bottom of the fifth,  Mason scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth and nine more in the sixth to overwhelm the visiting Fairfield Indians by a final score of 14-4 in six innings.

Rollie Sheriff (4-1) continued his solid season on the mound, pitching a complete game three-hitter.  He allowed just one earned run while striking out ten to drive his season ERA down to an impressive 1.17.  The Mason infield committed five errors on the day, allowing Fairfield to get within a run at 5-4 before the floodgates opened in the Mason sixth.

With the score tied 2-2 and two outs in the fifth, Mason Holloway delivered an RBI single and Harrison Johnson followed with a two-run triple to put the Comets up 5-2.  In the sixth, Mason sent thirteen batters to the plate, capitalizing on six walks to go with five hits in the big nine run inning.  Leaders on offense for Mason included:

Nick Northcut:  2 for 3, double, RBI
Joe Powell:  single, 2 RBI's
Mason Holloway:  2 for 3, 3 RBI's
Harrison Johnson:  2 for 3, triple, 3 RBI's

-The team won the 4x800 relay with a great effort from Ashraf, Goetz, Nijakowski and Troy.

4/13 Centerville Relays  

Mason boys track competed at the Centerville Relays last Friday night. The Comets honestly had a tough night.  The relay style format is usually good for Mason, but not on this night.

The team finished 4th overall, and pretty far back from 1st.  Mason did not score in a few key field events and took many 4th and 5th places.  The highlight of the night were the 4x400 of Porter, Nusser, Ashraf and Rojek.  They were able to notch a win, but the Comets were all saddened at the injury to key sprinter, Bryan Hudnell.  This hurt the team that night and will continue to be a tough barrier to overcome.  The boys did rally after his injury and we got great production from others filling in, but it was a tough blow to the whole team.  

Next up Boys Track and Field will compete at the Elder and Westerville South Invites on Friday, April 20th.

Game Highlights / Notes

3/20 Ursuline Academy won 14-4 1-0
Mason HS Girls Lacrosse opened the 2018 season Tuesday night against the Lions of Ursuline Academy. Mason was the one to come out roaring with a solid defensive stand resulting in a turnover leading to a quick transition culminating in a razor thin shot for a goal by attacker, Ellie Lefton. Your Comets continued to pour it on grabbing the next few possessions and building a quick 4-0 lead. It was Mason's tight defense, outstanding goal tending by Bee Kuehn and quick precision like transitions that kept the Comets solidly in front. By halftime Mason had the game well in hand 8-3. 

Not resting on it's haunches, Mason grabbed the first draw of the 2nd half and methodically worked it's offense for a goal by Julia Block and assisted by Ellie Lefton. Mason continued to dominate the ground balls and apply punishing pressure in their rides, capitalizing on many UA mistakes. Mason heaped on the goals to seal the victory 14-4. 

A great way to start the season. Bee Kuehn, confident in between the pipes, turned back 10 shots. Mason's defensive core of Megan Elko, Sophie Neuhaus, Madisen Bangs, Riley Brannock and Alana Vaughn smothered any attempt UA tried to muster. The Comets midfield six of Noorah Basher, Amanda Wells, Sophie Hoffman, Lilly Burke, Bianca Soper and Kate Cooper, owned the transition and draw circle with laser passing and relentless ground ball pressure. Finishing out the barrage were the five attackers of Julia Block, Cate Millard, Ellie Lefton, Ally Petrina and Mary Ann Colangelo who combined, scored 10 of Masons goals and led the redefend with ferocious pressure. Two big shouts go to Ellie with five assists and Ally with four huge ground balls.   

Mason has two home games coming up Thursday and Friday vs MND and St Francis Desales respectively. Both starts at 7:30 PM. Come out and support Mason HS Girls Lacrosse!

3/22 MND lost 12-5 1-1

Thursday night the Mason Girls Lacrosse team took on the Mount Notre Dame Cougars and came out on the short side, losing 12-5. On a beautiful weather night your Comets came out aggressive, but couldn't sustain a coordinated effort. Mason found themselves behind by a couple of goals before they netted their first of the game.

The Comet Ladies pressed into Cougars with quality re-defends and transition but could't capitalize. At halftime Mason found themselves down by a handful. In the second half, your Comets quickly closed the gap and after the first successful offensive wave,  found themselves again struggling to muster a consistent attack, MND's lead widen but Mason didn't quit and worked to get something going. In the end Mason found themselves on the down side against MND tough defense and goal tending. 

Mason Girls Lacrosse has another home contest this evening, Friday 3/23 against St. Francis DeSales, JV goes @ 6p  and Varsity starts at 7:30. Come out and cheer us on!

Mason controlled the game pace from the first draw with Noorah Basher seizing most of the possessions from the circle and came away with a 13-4 win.

From the opening whistle Mason didn't leave any room for the Spartans to breathe. Mason took a 7-0 lead into halftime. It was much of the same in the second half with your Comets dominating every aspect of the game. Turpin did rally a bit to net some goals but each was quickly matched by Mason quick goal.

Mason sealed the win 13-4 on goals scored by Cate Millard, Ally Petrina, Ellie Lefton, Julia Bock, Lilly Burke, Sophie Hoffman, Mary Ann Colangelo and Kate Cooper. Bee Kuehn 6 shots from the cage and we saw a dominant defense stand from Sophie Neuhaus, Alana Vaughn, Madisen Bangs, Megan Elko and Riley Brannock.

4/7 New Albany lost 10-7 2-3

Saturday, playing among a wintry mix, your Mason Girls Lacrosse team took on a tough New Albany Eagles team. The Comets matched up well, played solid defense while a couple of goals were traded back and forth, but it was a few untimely turnovers for Mason that gave the Eagles a four goal lead at halftime.

Never deterred your Comets challenged right at the start and finished with a flurry, but simply ran out of time. In the end Mason fell to New Albany 7-10. Bee Kuehn was again solid in the cage turning back 11 shots. Sophie Neuhaus picked up five ground balls and forced two turnovers. Goals for the Comets came from Julia Block, Ellie Lefton and Cate Millard.

4/10 @ East won 9-5 3-3

Mason Girls Lacrosse went up against a feisty Lakota East team last night. Right from the start Mason took it to the Thunderhawks jumping on an early lead. It was a physical battle throughout the game and your Comets had a 6-4 lead into halftime. In the second half it was Mason who brought the thunder with locked down defense, solid goal tending, excellent draw control and patient offense.

Mason defense crushed it holding the hawks to just one measly goal in the second half while offensively we netted another three to finish with a 9-5 victory.

This was an outstanding team win capitalizing on the opponents weaknesses and making adjustments throughout the game to bring it home! Individual standouts include another consistent game from goal keeper, Bee Kuehn who turned back 6 shots. Goals were scored by Cate Millard, Noorah Basher, Julia Block and Sophie Hoffman. Mason won the possession game taking with Noorah Basher and Amanda Wells getting 80% of the draw controls. Team wide we picked up 17 ground balls, forced 6 turnovers and had two interceptions.

4/12 @ West won 19-3 4-3
Mason HS Girls Lacrosse made another go around in West Chester to take on the Lakota West Firebirds last night. Mason came out with a barrage of offense and a buttoned down defense that smothered the birds taking a 9-2 lead into halftime. Combine winning 75% of the draws, picked up twice as many ground balls, caused four turnovers, took two interceptions and saved five shots at the goal. Put it all together for a stellar team performance and solid win, 19-3. 

By the numbers Cate Millard had 7 goals, Mary Ann Colangelo netted 5, Julia Block had 3, Kate Cooper had 2, Noorah Basher with a goal and Sophie Hoffman putting one in with a pretty sweet BTB shot! Ally Petrina went on a feeding frenzy assisting in four of those goals. Noorah was clutch with 6 draw controls and four ground balls and Bee Kuehn once again took command turning back 5 of Lakota's shots. Lilly Burke took three draw controls, Bianca Soper got herself a draw control and nice interception while Amanda Wells was fierce on transition and added draw circle support like no other.

The Comets defensive core of Bee Kuehn, Sophie Neuhaus, Megan Elko, Alana Vaughn, Riley Brannock and Madisen Bangs have been playing lights out. Holding our opponents to their lowest goals per game output. 

Next up for your 4-3 Mason Girls Lacrosse team is a road trip to Olentangy HS on Saturday 4/14. Varsity starts at 11 am and JV draws at 12:30 PM!
4/14 @ Olentangy won 17-16 5-3
On Saturday, Mason Girls Lacrosse traveled North to Olentangy HS. Your Comets going in as the underdog, matched up well against the Lady Braves. Right from the opening draw, your green team brought the pressure and the Braves quickly found out that they had met their toughest challenge of the season. In spite of Mason's relentless pressure Olentangy found the back of the net for the games first goal but one minute later Mary Ann Colangelo knotted the game with her first. Olentangy fired right back with two quick ones taking the score 1-3. Mason, never dismayed, came back with their own barrage putting in six unanswered goals by Julia Block, Cate Millard, two more for Mary Ann and two from midfielder Lilly Burke.  Comets were up 7-3 but Mason spotted Olentangy 3 of their own before Julia found the back of the net again for a 8-6 Comet lead. Credit the Braves who fought back with three more taking a one goal lead with 30 seconds remaining in the half. Mason Girls would have none of that stuff, grabbed the next draw possession, marched it down and with 5 ticks before the buzzer, it was Mary Ann who found Noorah Basher in the middle to even it up 9-9. And we still had another half to play!

OHS came out with faster tempo and shot two goals before Cate netted her second, but the Braves countered with three more scores taking a lead 10-14. Now it was Mason's turn to light it up with Cate getting two more while Lilly added her third of the day. Olentangy fired back with one more before Ally Petrina snagged a critical ground ball of a tough redefend and charged the net for her first goal. The Comets now down 14-15 couldn't hold the Braves who scored to go up 14-16 with 12 minutes remaining in the see-saw game. 

Enough is enough and Mason defense held the Braves scoreless for the remainder of the game. It was your Comets tenacious rides, precision transition and timely saves by Bee Kuehn that allowed our offense to press in on Olentangy and tie it up at 8:25 by goals from Cate and Julia. Sound play at both ends of the field gave Julai another shot to take the lead with 3:16 remaining and it was Noorah who on the draw circle who grabbed that critical possession which allowed us to run out the clock, sort of. Befitting the excitement of the last 49 minutes OHS was able to steal the ball and gain a free position shot. It was Bee who came up with the key save allowing us to hold the ball as time expired. Mason taking the win 17-16 from #6 ranked Olentangy, an outstanding team victory! 

Next up for Mason Girls Lacrosse is Tuesday night at home vs. Kings HS. JV starts 6 and Varsity draws at 7:30 PM

We have two special occasions this evening: Mason Lacrosse Club Girls Youth Night and Maya Collins Tribute. Come out and support Childhood Cancer Awareness ,local girls lacrosse and your MHS Girls Lacrosse Team!
4/17 Kings (youth night) won 16-4 6-3
Mason Girls lacrosse continued to roll Tuesday night 16-4 over the Kings HS Lady Laxers. Although Kings did notch the first goal of the game, your Comets quickly matched it and that would be the last lead the Knights would have. Mason playing smothering defense, backed up by yet another outstanding game by keeper, Bee Kuehn, shut Kings down holding them to just four goals. The Comet's brought a tenacious ride that re-gained possession roughly 40% of the time keeping the ball in our end allowing us to control the game with our calculated offense. When things weren't settled it was our fast breaks with pinpoint passing finishing with laser shooting that put points on the board.

It was a special night on two fronts for MHS Girls Lax. First, we celebrated the girls lacrosse youth programs operated by the Mason Lacrosse Club. Local youth girls were involved in many aspects of the game including introductions, warm ups, a halftime game and facility tours. It was great to have the youth players participation. 

Second, was to remember Maya Collins with #MayaStrong Evening. In a sea of blue T-shits many folks remembered the fierce battle Maya waged to beat childhood cancer. Her legacy lives on in others through GRIT and DETERMINATION to eradicate this awful disease. Senior, Noorah Basher coordinated the event to help raise awareness and funds. Thanks to all who helped, donated and attended. Check out some pics of the evening at https://www.cincinnati.com/picture-gallery/sports/high-school/ohio-high-school/2018/04/18/photos-mason-kings-girls-lacrosse-teams-play-in-honor-of-mayastrong/33942409/

Next up Mason (6-3) will host Sycamore on Thursday, April 19th.

4/19 Sycamore won 13-9 7-3
MHS GIRLS LACROSSE BEATS SYCAMORE!!

Going into the 2018 season, Mason GLAX members set a number of team level goals. Last night they notched a biggie by knocking off GMC rival Sycamore, 13-9 bumping our record to 7-3 overall. This was an excellent team victory across the board, highlighting our resiliency and determination.

In spite of being down two quick goals, your Comets never flinched. Another one of our crushing re-defends led to an Aves turnover culminating in a goal by Cate Millard. The defense locked down, transition stepped up and the offense got fluid adding four more goals by a combination of Sophie Hoffman, Ellie Lefton, Kate Cooper and again Cate Millard resulting in a 5-5 halftime score. 


At the 2nd half whistle Mason girls ratcheted up their play taking the lead 6-5 on a goal by Noorah Basher and we never looked back. Tenacious defense led by Sophie Nuehaus, Megan Elko, Madisen Bangs, Riley Brannock, Alana Vaughn and Bee Kuehn in the cage held the Aves to just 4 2nd half goals. Cate, Ellie and Mary Ann Colangelo splattered the back of the net 7 more times to bring home the victory. A fitting end brought by Mary Ann on a last second "buzzer beater" shot from 25 yards out sealed the deal.

This was a great win for our team and MHS GLAX program!
