LOVELAND, OHIO - The Loveland High School girls lacrosse team finished the season with a 6-9 record. They fell in the second round of the state tournament to last years Division I state champion Sycamore after defeating Centerville in the first round. Head Coach Art Jarvis said, "We had solid wins against McAuley, Kings, Centerville, Milford and Lakota East during the regular season." The team was defeated by 4 top ten teams: Sycamore, Mason, Lakota West, and Ursuline. "As you always hear 'you have to play the best to be the best' and that is what this year was all about." Jarvis said that as long as the girls continue to learn from the tougher teams they will get to where they need to be, " soon enough."
From an individual standpoint sophomore goalie Steph Jacob was 5th in the state for total saves and 9th in the state for save percentage.
Junior Midfielder Katie Henke received Honorable Mention All District.
Katie Jarvis finished the season #1 in the state for assists and #1 for points per game at 6.62 PPG. She also finished the season as the 3rd top scorer in the state.

She finished her Loveland High School lacrosse career holding every game, season, and career lacrosse record possible, with the exception of the goalie records.

Being somewhat modest and trying not to brag to much about his daughter, Head Coach and father Art Jarvis said, "These records will fall quickly as this is a new sport to Loveland and there are many talented girls waiting in the wings to make their marks on Loveland High School girls’ lacrosse." The Head Coach cannot however downplay the national and state rankings Katie Jarvis has received.
Katie Jarvis will play Lacrosse next year for the University of Cincinnati, and will be the first Loveland High

He said that Memorial Day is "truly about those who have died in service to the country" and he will talk about a few of the people he knew, "who gave their life."
McCahan will also talk about the experience of taking his six-year old daughter to Arlington National Cemetery after she told him she wanted to know more about what Memorial Day was all about. Before the trip, "Memorial Day was about shopping at the mall and "Memorial Day sales."

When leaving to go home and taking the METRO out of the Pentagon station, his daughter struck up conversations with a military widow who had lost her husband in war, and a young boy who lost his father in war. McCahan said he will try to recount the moving subway ride.

for Loveland High School graduate Marine Capt. David “Seth” Mitchell

Local Group's Donation of 1,000 Fielding Helmets Gets National Attention
“Having every player at every position wear them at the youngest age
creates an acceptance,” said Scott Schlesner of Loveland, Ohio, Cole Schlesner’s father, and a club
coach. “As they get older, they won’t feel strange wearing them.”
The elite club team Schlesner played for, the Cincinnati Stix, now
mandates helmets for every defensive player through age 10 and for every
pitcher through the high school age group.
A year ago, the parents and friends of Cole Schlesner, a 14-year-old
from Loveland, Ohio, struck in the top of the head by a line drive,
started a nonprofit organization that recently donated 1,000
batting helmets for pitchers to wear in youth leagues across four
states. Read the full article below...
Summoning a blend of courage and lunacy only he can fully grasp, Matt
Hiserman of the University of San Francisco will take the mound Sunday,
his eyes locking in on a batter wielding the weapon that twice resulted
in a baseball striking his head. Five years ago, a line drive damaged
his sinus cavities, three months ago another fractured his skull and
caused his brain to bleed.
There is a touch of “The Hurt Locker” in Hiserman, a man on a mission
inexorably drawn to danger. And plenty of scared college kid in him,
too. A month earlier, before throwing a pitch for the first time since
the second injury, Hiserman retreated behind the mound for a moment and
went into a crouch. He breathed deeply and wordlessly recited the “Serenity Prayer.” Read on...
