On a beautiful day to tee it up at California golf course, junior Connor Lambert carded a 4 over par 39 to lead the Spartan golfers to a 168-189 victory over the Mariemont warriors. Connor's score is significant as he matched shot for shot of Mariemont's Will Grimer (38) headed to Ohio State to play for the Buckeyes next year. Grimmer is one of the top golfers in the mid-west. This was the last match play event for our 3 seniors, Russ Heltman, Steven Jankowski and Matt Stockman. These fine young men have played on the varsity team for 4 years and have contributed greatly to a consistently competitive spartan golf team! Coach Price is very proud of each of your contributions to THS and Spartan golf. The team will now be focused on the ECC Tournament this Thursday at Glenview golf course, followed by the Sectional tournamnet back at Glenview on September 30. A strong finish by the team or individual performer will advance them to the District championships. Thanks again to Russ, Steven and Matt for your leadership and good luck at the upcoming tournaments.
In doing so, the Lady Turpin Spartans collected their 9th win of the season and 5th shutout to improve their record to 9-2-1 (ECC; 3-0-1). They remain tied for 2nd place in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference (ECC) with the Lady Loveland Tigers. Walnut Hills currently claims the top ECC spot with a 4-0-0 ECC record. The Spartans play both these teams in the coming weeks in which the outcomes of those games will determine the 2014 ECC Champion.
Turpin traveled to Lebanon on Saturday morning hoping for a win against the Warriors. After battling through four sets, the Spartans were successful! Set 1 started with Turpin giving up the first 3 points before really turning it on. With help from Marisa Cerchio covering the net, the Spartans took the match with a score of 27-25.
