The team was led by point guard Sabrina DelBello '21 who earned All-Tournament honors. Over the break, the deeply talented team was recognized by the Cincinnati Enquirer as the Team of the Week (Check out the article). The ladies return to action tonight in a MVC match-up against Clark before returning home Saturday for a game versus New Miami.

Varsity Sports Updates
Wrestling: Wrestling finished 2018 with a home meet two days before winter break. The wrestlers grappled with opponents from Western Brown, Schroeder, and Hughes. Every wrestler had a match, and we won each bout, a rare feat in this sport. Junior captain Noah Wise went 2-0 for the evening and recorded a 21 second pin in one of his matches. First-year wrestler Cader Rowe won the first two bouts of his career. It was a special night with everyone showing grit and grace in victory. Before school reconvened, the team traveled to Valley View High School for a tournament. Three-sport junior Keane Warner placed sixth. Warner made it to the championship semifinals before dropping into the consolation bracket. He showed a lot of heart as he lost his fifth-place match in a hard-fought overtime battle. Freshman Bailey Edmonson also placed sixth.

MS Athletic Team Spotlight: The middle school wrestling team may be small, but they are already making an impact. At their first invitational at North College Hill, Tristen Davis placed third and Noah Webb placed fifth in their weight classes. The team also came back to school earlier than other teams from winter break to practice and host their own invitational. On Saturday, Jan. 5, the team hosted 14 other schools and more than 100 wrestlers at the CCDS Wrestling Invitational. The day was filled with some great matches as wrestlers competed to earn top honors of the day. Tristen Davis went undefeated in the 116-pound pool bracket and completed the day with a second-place finish. Noah Webb pinned his opponent in his final match to earn a third-place finish in the 124- pound weight class. The invitational was a fantastic opportunity to show CCDS's wrestling pride and for our wrestlers to demonstrate that their hard work and dedication are paying off as they drive toward the MVC Championships on Feb. 8 at CCDS. Good luck in the upcoming meets.
Youth Program Spotlight:
The third-grade basketball teams kicked the season off with great energy and determination. The boys and girls teams have practiced since the beginning of December to build both team and individual skills. Their growth has been tremendous. Each team's selfless play has created some exciting games over the season's first few weeks. Under coaches Zimmerman's (boys) and Ross's (girls) direction, the teams continue to grow and develop their skills with smiles on their faces. The team's joy of playing is infectious, and every game demonstrates their Indian pride and the strength they have built as a team. We look forward to continuing to represent CCDS proudly over the rest of the season. Go Indians!
