On Saturday, September 7th, the Hawk's Cross Country Team traveled to the largest High School Cross Country Meet in the country in Tiffin, OH. Our small school was represented in a BIG way lead by Senior Patrick Lyell's 5th place finish out of 250 runners! Freshman Emily Porter's took a 3rd place finish out of 303 runners, and many runners achieved personal best times as well. Congratulations Hawks!
Congratulations to Niladri Aich ‘19 for his commitment to play tennis for Lourdes College next year. Niladri is the first International student from Maumee Valley to sign to play in college since they have been able to compete at the Varsity level last year. Great job, Niladri!
Congratulations to MVCDS basketball players Zeb Jackson & JR Lumsden who were recognized as part of Steve Taylor’s High School Stars of the Week. This program choses four students each week based on their performance both on and off the field, on a stage, in a classroom or on a court. Students are then highlighted in a weekly video, acknowledged in the local Toledo Blade newspaper, a “shout out” on their local sports radio station The Ticket.
Congratulations to our Upper School Winter Track athletes who have worked hard this season. When possible, the team trains outside. However, on many afternoons you will find them in the athletic wing or school hallways working on their strength, endurance, and form. Under the leadership of Tara Morrin and Jack Dias, Winter Track is an adaptable team! Two athletes, Niladri Aich '19 and Patrick Lyell '20, qualified for the state meet. Niladri placed 21st in the triple jump with a jump of 34'1". This is impressive since Niladri only participated in triple jump twice before the state meet and had to practice in the hallway due to weather. Patrick placed 9th in the 800m run, one spot away from making the podium. He was close to a personal record with a time of 2:03.11.
