The swim and dive team captured the GGCL crown last weekend, scoring 110 points more than the second-place team! Congratulations to all of the girls who have participated this crazy season and to Coach Albert, Coach Belza, and Coach Unthank for their work to keep the team active. Notable finishes from the GGCL meet include: Caitlyn Clements '21 who won the 50 freestyle and placed 3rd in the 100 freestyle; Natalie Gockerman '24 who won both the 200 and 500 freestyle; Courtney McKeown '23 who finished 3rd in the 200 freestyle and 2nd in the 100 butterfly; Sydney Herr '24 who placed 2nd in the 200 IM and 3rd in the 100 butterfly; Ellen Lange '23 who finished 3rd in the 200 IM and 2nd in the 500 freestyle; Sophia Dugan '21 placed 3rd in the 50 freestyle; and Mia Meinhardt '22 who finished 3rd in the dive competition.

Two SUA relay teams also won their races: Clements, Gockerman, Sophia Dugan '21 and Victoria Perera '24 won the 200 freestyle relay; and McKeown, Herr, Lang, and Gockerman won the 400 freestyle relay. The 200 medley relay team of Lange, McKeown, Clements and Amanda Serger '22 finished just 0.5 seconds behind the winning team.

Basketball and Bowling Continue to Play

The basketball and bowling teams continue to adjust to last minute game changes as they progress through the season. Both teams had victories on Monday leading into this week's match ups against GGCL schools. The basketball team defeated Taft 74 - 39 with each member of the team scoring in the game. The bowling teams swept Mason on Monday, with varsity high series set by Alli Shattuck- 407 (200,207) and Peyton Beard- 362 (155, 207), and reserve high series by Regan Saucer- 267 (124, 143) and Sara Salem- 253 (136, 117).

The HoopDawgs and BowlDawgs wrap up GGCL play this Thursday with their final GGCL matches of the season against Mercy McAuley. SUA senior Shamia Strayhorn will be honored that night and recognized for her four-year contribution to SUA basketball. Congratulations, Shamia!

The basketball team will finish the season with three road games before starting tournament play. The bowling team will compete in the GGCL tournament next Monday en route to their postseason tournament.

Spring Sport Registration

Parents should use their FinalForms account to register their daughter for a spring sport (lacrosse, softball, track & field). Selecting a sport in FinalForms does not obligate the student to tryout for the team or guarantee a roster spot. Registering for the sport simply indicates that your daughter in interested in receiving information about upcoming tryouts.

Use the Program Information on the Spring Sports page of the website to obtain specific information about each sport. Note that for spring sports, players have required activities during the school's Easter break. There are no required activities from Holy Thursday through the following Tuesday. Athletes are expected to be present for required practices or games on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

All spring athletes must have a current OHSAA preparticipation physical form on file in the Athletic Office. Parents should download the form from FinalForms prior to the physician appointment and have the physician sign and date the form. The signed form can then be uploaded in FinalForms or returned to the main office (ATTN: Athletic Department).
