The Indian Hill Cross Country teams returned to Voice of America Park on Saturday for the 2014 Southwest District XC Championships. The boys were seeded 1st and the girls 2nd coming into the race, and both teams raced like champions, living up to their lofty seeds.
The Braves' men are the 2014 SW District XC Champions for the 2nd year in a row, edging out Clark Montessori's strong team by 6 points.
All 7 varsity members ran great races, led again by sophomore Ben Warstler who set another career PR by taking 4th in the District in 17:05. Equally impressive was the performance of junior Trent Geyer, now fully back from recent injury. Trent shattered his career PR by finishing 5th overall in 17:12. Both are fully capable of going sub-17 at next week's Regional Championships. Sophomore Devin Heffernan set another career PR of 17:32, finishing 9th. Senior Captain Wells Coalfleet made the biggest week to week move, taking 10th place in 17:38. Sophomore Patrick Giroux has completed his comeback from summer illness, breaking through the 18 minute barrier for the first time with a career PR of 17:55, finishing 19th overall. Freshman Joe Murdock and sophomore Ben Mendelsohn both ran very solid races, finishing in 18:28 and 18:31, respectively.

INDIAN HILL – It is never just a two-team race, but over the last 10 years the Cincinnati Hills League champion in girls soccer has either been Indian Hill High School, Madeira or both.
This year, like last, it's both.
In their regular season finale Oct. 8, coach Amy Dunlap's Lady Braves scored early against Madeira, then watched as the Amazons added a goal in the end to tie 1-1. With Madeira's win over Deer Park Oct. 13, both teams finished 5-0-2 in the CHL to share the crown a second consecutive season.
Over the past decade, Indian Hill has won five titles and Madeira, six.
Dunlap's crew now starts another tournament run in Division II, while Madeira is now Division III. Unlike 2010, when the Amazons ended Indian Hill's undefeated season in November on penalty kicks in overtime, they can't meet again.

The Varsity Girls tennis season officially ended last Saturday at the State tournament in Columbus. Meredith Breda and Caroline Andersen, last year's 1st team all-Ohio doubles players dropped their match to Adrian Young and Alissa Nakamoto of Pepper Pike Orange. It was an unfortunate early match-up of two of the best doubles teams in Ohio. However, Meredith and Caroline have a lot to be proud of after winning the District title for the second consecutive year. In this year's District finals, Breda and Andersen defeated the eventual State Champs, Hawley and Showalter of Kettering Alter.
Our team finished the season ranked #1 in Cincinnati and #3 in Ohio and had a 19-3 record. It was a great year even though we were not able to overcome the loss of key players due to injury in our attempt to win back-to-back state championships.
