The 2014 girls varsity tennis team finished the season as the #1 ranked team in Cincinnati and #3 in Ohio. With the kickoff to the 2015 season behind them, this year's squad is looking to match and surpass last year's accomplishments, and the current state poll in Ohio seems to justify that with a current #2 ranking.
The team returns their top 3 singles players; seniors Caroline Andersen and Meredith Breda, as well as sophomore Gracey Hirsch. There are only one or two Division 2 teams in Ohio with singles players this formidable. Also, returning to the Braves line-up after a year's absence on the courts is former #2 singles player, senior, Maren McKenna.

INDIAN HILL – It’s not surprising to hear a team from Indian Hill that plays in Tomahawk Stadium is named “The Braves.”
What many following Indian Hill High School football may not know is the team’s “other” nickname.
Last year, coach Tony Arcuri and staff did some research and found that elite Native American soldiers were referred to as “dogmen.” From there, an idea was born, complete with the obligatory shirts.
“Think of them as special forces when it comes to a Native American warrior,” Arcuri said. “It’s just something to give us distinction. We came out with it and within this community, that’s what our football team is known as.”
