The varsity team went 1-2 last week, while JV went 2-0. Both teams had great GCC conference wins against Brunswick. Varsity had losses to both New Albany and Bay Village. Both of these tough teams reached the final four playoffs last year. We know playing a tougher schedule isn’t about focusing on wins but the process. Process over results! The hope is that these difficult games will help us grow and get us farther in the post season. It’s hard to believe there are only 4 weeks left in the regular season! The team is going to focus on being more consistent and maintaining our energy in this last half of the season. The team needs to finish like we started this season!

Brunswick gave us our first GCC conference win with a score of 17-3. Leading the team were Tori Wanat with 5 goals, 2 assists and Allanah Hagen with 6 goals. Sophie Adanitcsh had 3 goals and 1 assist while Addie Owen Kren, Hayley Huston, and Lexi Miller each got one goal a piece. Lilly Drenski and Delaney Dadas got into the action with 5 assists collectively. (Drenski 3, Dadas 2). Karson Filut had an outstanding 60% save % while the lady Mustangs got 14 caused turnovers led by Wanat with 4.

The New Albany just proved too tough returning back from Spring Break with a loss 17-5. Scoring for the Mustangs were Tori Wanat with 2 goals, Lilly Drenski 2 goals and Addie Owen Kren with 1 goal.

On Saturday, the varsity team lost to Bay Village 13-12. Box scores/stats show a very tight match as the Lady Mustangs just couldn’t come up with the victory. Leading the team was Lilly Drenski with 4 goals and 1 assist. Tori Wanat and Sophie Adanaitsch both with 3 goals. Addie Owen Kren had 2 goals.

Despite the losses, Wanat, Owen-Kren and Drenski played great games on both ends of the field against New Albany and Bay. In addition, draw controls and possession have been improving for our midfield team over the course of the season. Key players taking the draw include Lilly Drenski and Izzy Medrick, while a rotation with Wanat, Hagen, Adanitsch and Owen Kren on the circle has helped the mustangs improve their possession %. We plan to work more in depth on our draw strategies in this second half of the season.

Wednesday Recap:

Strongsville 96, Euclid 40

I wish I could say I have all the results from Wednesday’s meet. I have spoken to and received many of the results sheets from Euclid, but not all of the results survived the rain at the end of the meet and were illegible.HEREis a link to all of the results that I was able to collect. As a side note. It is important to understand that hand timing is not as accurate as Fully Automated Timing (FAT). The shorter the race the more inaccurate the time (not including human error). Therefore, a formula is applied to hand times to make them more accurate. A .24 is added to the short sprints (110H, 100M, 200M, 300M).

The Greater Cleveland Conference (GCC) will be raising admission ticket prices for all athletic events beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. In May, GCC principals approved the increase in athletic ticket prices after GCC Athletic Directors conducted a review of ticket prices for surrounding conferences in Northeast Ohio and found most to already be at these price levels. Ticket sales revenue generated from the events is the main source of funding used by member schools to cover costs for sports and the overall athletic department budget. While costs of game officials, security, sporting equipment, along with all the other costs associated with these events have increased and ticket prices have not. The increase is intended to help offset costs without sacrificing family, student and community experiences. This is the first price increase the GCC has issued since the formation of the league in 2020. The GCC consists of member schools Brunswick, Cleveland Heights, Euclid, Medina, Mentor, Shaker Heights, and Strongsville.
