The boys golf and girls tennis teams both captured Eastern Cincinnati Conference titles last week.
For girls tennis, it was a 10th league crown in the past 12 years. The team went undefeated in conference play and then won the ECC Tournament. The season highlight was the victory against rival Milford. “Last year we lost to them 0-5, and this year we won 3-2, so that was big for us,” said senior Katie Hoderlein. Katie is the last tennis player still competing for the Tigers after winning three matches at sectionals; she plays Saturday (Oct. 6) for the right to advance to districts.
Boys golf finished its regular season with an impressive 12-1 record, beating opponents like St. Xavier, Colerain, and Elder. It won the ECC championship at Glenview Golf Course, and three of the top four finishers competitors were Tigers, including medalist Isaac Vock (10).
Isaac said, “We were very dedicated during the preseason, and we played consistently well in competition. Not losing any seniors from last year was also a big help.”
On Thursday (Oct. 11), Isaac and teammates Reid Waddell, Brian Bullock, Perry Strong, and Zach Flege will compete at districts after coming in fourth at the sectional tournament.
