Girls Golf will be the first Greater Miami Conference championship to be contested this year. The two-day tournament will take place at Walden Ponds Golf Course on September 17th and September 18th. The GMC defending girls golf champions are the Mason Comets who have won 5 of the previous 7 titles.

In addition to the normal weekly head to head competition in Ohio's best athletic conference, the month of September is proving to be quite an active month for a number of league events:

GMC Student Leadership Summit being held on Thursday, September 19th at the Wilks Center on Miami's Hamilton Campus. Presented by Beacon Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine features keynote speaker Alan Stein.

GMC Girls Golf Championships being held on Tuesday, September 17th & Wednesday, September 18th at Walden Ponds Golf Course.

GMC Girls Tennis Championships being held at Mason High School on Thursday, September 26th and Saturday, September 28th.

GMC Boys Golf Championships being held on Wednesday, September 25th & Thursday, September 26th at Walden Ponds Golf Course.

To say the least, September will be an interesting month of activities and interaction for the Greater Miami Conference.
