With the World Series upon us, it is time to be encouraged about the prospect of a near future New York Mets’ team that will include on its roster a Clermont countian.
Clermont County’s varsity girls tennis season has come to a close following the confrontations in the respective conference tournaments and the sectional tournament. Glen Este and Milford, two of Clermont County’s Division I tennis squads, turned in somewhat respectable records overall and in their respective conferences.
The two West Clermont squads in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference (FAVC) boys soccer races are not faring as well as they’d like. Glen Este is 3-10-1 overall and 1-3-1 in the FAVC Buckeye Division.
Batavia easily gained the SBC-N crown. After the five-round tournament, the Bulldogs had taken 923 strokes, Georgetown 1,069, and Blanchester 1,090.
Glen Este was handed its first loss of the season, Goshen’s winning streak was ended, Clermont Northeastern won its fourth game in the last five weeks.
Clermont County has been blessed with several very talented varsity girls soccer teams. Milford is in the thick of the Greater Miami Conference (GMC) race. Williamsburg is one of the most improved of the county’s programs. Milford is 12-3-1 overall and 6-2-1 in the GMC.
Clermont County’s varsity cross country teams are focusing on the upcoming conference and sectional/regional meets.
Goshen’s varsity volleyball team has been playing pretty solidly of late. “They’re starting to play together. They’re playing with more consistency,” said head coach Lisa Smith.
Glen Este keeps on keeping on as does Goshen; and New Richmond joins the winners’ column this week in Clermont County high school varsity football action. Glen Este (7-0) clobbered the Comets of Mason 35-13 on the winners’ turf.
New Richmond avenged its only Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC) setback that took place in Mount Orab earlier in September by paying back Western Brown’s Broncos 3-2. The Brown and Gold’s loss was their first in the SBC and ties the Brown countians with the Red and Black for the conference’s American Division leadership position.
