The Fairfield Girls Bowling squad finished an undefeated season, besting second place Hamilton Big Blue by one game in the standings to win their fourth consecutive Greater Miami Conference title.  In the head-to-head showdown the Fairfield contingent tallied 2468 pins to Hamilton's 2219.  Congratulations to the Fairfield team for an outstanding season and the continuation of a bowling dynasty.

Fairfield Indian Girls Bowling - 2020 GMC Champions

As in all GMC competitive activities, the world of the Academic Quiz Teams is no different.  This year's conference schedule saw the Fairfield Indians and the Sycamore Aviators end the season with identical 17-1-0 records, but by conference by-laws, the conference crown goes the team who tallied the best point differential in their head-to-head meeting.  Based on those points, the Fairfield contingent walked away with the coveted GMC Championship by the slimmest of margins.

DICK's Sporting Goods appreciates outstanding efforts across the conference and congratulates Fairfield's Mark Bramm as the GMC "Coach of the Year" and Nathan Taylor, also of Fairfield, as the GMC "Academic Athlete of the Year".

When the pins settled after the last GMC frame was bowled, the conference found itself in a three-way tie for first place between the Middletown Middies, the Oak Hills Highlanders and the Mason Comets.  All finished with identical 7-2 conference records along with impressive non-conference slates.  Leading the charge were the Middies with an overall record of 16-2.

Congratulations to all these outstanding bowlers. Best of luck in the OHSAA Tournament.

The Lakota West Firebird Girls Basketball Program put together a spectacular 15-1 GMC record to edge the talented Princeton Viking contingent who finished with a strong 14-2 slate. After splitting a pair of regular season contests, the league title was ultimately decided by Princeton's 1 point loss to Oak Hills. This was the sixth consecutive year that Lakota West either won outright or shared the conference title.

Final Standings reflected the overall competitive balance of the conference as demonstrated by the standings below:

Lakota West 15-1, Princeton 14-2, Mason 12-4, Sycamore 11-5, Oak Hills 8-8, Lakota East 8-8, Fairfield 7-9, Colerain 3-13, Middletown 2-14 and Hamilton 0-16.

Lakota East Boys Bball came roaring out of the gate on Tuesday night in their 2nd meeting of the season against Oak Hills. The usually always tough Highlander defense didn’t know what hit them as the Hawks went on 15-0 run in the first quarter, effectively putting OH in a hole that they would not be able to climb out. East endured a third-quarter come-back effort and put the game away in the fourth quarter, going on to win 48-34.

The win left the Thunderhawks with a two-game lead in the conference and one to play – at Lakota West on Friday.
