Girls volleyball and soccer are successful in tournament action; Amelia kickers pull off major upset – boys are kicked around
Clermont County’s varsity volleyball and boys and girls soccer teams are now competing in their respective sectional tournaments. The major highlight of the tournament for county teams, thus far, was Amelia’s upset victory over seeded and city-ranked Mount Notre Dame in girls soccer.
It was a bleak week for most of Clermont County’s high school varsity football teams. Only Glen Este, Goshen, and Williamsburg emerged victorious. It took the Trojans (5-4 overall, 2-2 Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye) an incredibly exciting overtime period, but they won out over host Harrison 31-30.
Batavia, Milford, and Goshen’s girls varsity soccer teams have turned in the best showings of late. New Richmond has been above .500 in recent action. The Bulldogs blasted Blanchester’s Wildcats 7-2 in Southern Buckeye Conference National Division play. Sarah Smith netted four points and Holly Harris accounted for the other three in this victory.
The varsity girls golf season is coming to an end for Clermont County’s varsity teams. In the Division I Tournament that took place at Walden Pond Golf Course, Milford finished fifth among 12 teams with a total of 403 strokes. Mason’s Comets were the champions with 305.
Milford, the state-ranked and locally feared, boys soccer power heads the way for itself and several other very successful Clermont County high school varsity teams. Batavia and Bethel-Tate are also enjoying banner years and New Richmond is showing great and rapid improvement.
