Dominating is the term one would use to describe the IH Girls MS Tennis Team this year. Forget that they only have 3 returning players from last year’s team or that one of the starting 7th graders is playing with a right hand filled with stitches or that their 1st match of the year is against Sycamore who beat them 5-0 last year. It just didn’t matter! The Braves came to play. They pummeled Sycamore 5-0 in the starting matches and 2-0 in the exhibition matches. Turned around the next day and did the same thing again this time it was CCD who got pummeled.

Varsity tennis singles players Gracey Hirsch, Morgan Coburn and Hayley Hirsch combined to win 2 out of the 3 singles matches against Mason High School, the #1 ranked Division 1 school in the state of Ohio. It was a remarkable performance led by freshman, Morgan Coburn's defeat of Mason senior Amanda Huser, who is being recruited heavily to play Division 1 college tennis. Freshmen Hayley Hirsch followed this up with a straight set victory over Santana Reddy of Mason. Unfortunately, our varsity team dropped 2 matches that went to the end of the 3rd set and Mason squeaked by and escaped with a 3-2 victory.I told our team that this is as tough as it gets in Division 1 and we had them hanging by a thread.

Braves cheerleaders have not only been working all summer, but working hard. Learning, growing, bonding and improving through everything from practices, coaching youth cheerleaders, to attending UCA summer camp at Miami University. The cheerleaders hosted a week long summer cheer camp for the youth cheerleaders to teach them the skills of cheerleading and the values and roles of being a cheerleader in your school and community. Throughout the summer the IH Lady Braves attended UCA summer camp where they won the banana (a top award given to the most spirited squad each day) and multiple trophies during the camp competition and also won camp championships out of 14 other teams.
