Boys Basketball 
The Spartans won all their games over break. During their game against Goshen, they were down until 3rd quarter when they took the lead and ended up with a win. All games were non-league except for Dixie. Although Dixie attempted to make a comeback, the team fought hard and maintained their lead. Their record this season is an impressive 9-2 as they continue to seek a league title. 
Last Saturday, the swim team traveled to Miami University for a large invitational meet. Despite some time out of the water, the Spartans swam extremely well. The girls team ended up 3rd in a field of 11 teams that included many strong D1 teams. The boys finished 6th out of 12 teams. It was a competitive, successful meet in a fast pool. On Saturday the 11th, the team will go to Princeton High School for another huge meet and compete against many DI teams. They also have a dual meet with Bishop Fenwick on Sunday. 
Wrestling has been on a roll lately, having individual placers at almost every meet they have competed in. Off the mat, they recently volunteered their time at Quaker Heights over Christmas Break. They took various board games to the residents and spent quality time with chatting and simply enjoying each other’s company. The Spartans return to the mat on Saturday January 11th at the Wilmington Invite.
