Coach Susan Savage's 24th edition of The Indian Hill Track and Field Team has completed its February conditioning program and now has the month of March to prepare for The Coaches Classic Meet, the kickoff to the 2014 season to be held at McNicholas High School on April 4-5.
While the Braves have some terrific returning talent, there are big shoes to fill with the 2013 graduation of several longtime IHHS track and field standouts, including Sara Lance, Jenny Blazic, Christine Canning, Austin Hughes, Mason McClay, and Johnny Stephen.
There are lots of questions to be answered by this team in March, including :
"Who are the team leaders and how will they lead?"
"Can the Lady Braves' "SuperJuniors" take it up another level?"
"Are there any "new-to-track" seniors or freshmen ready to contribute?"
Indian Hill Lacrosse will be participating in the American Heart Association's Heart Mini Marathon for the third year.
As of March 7th, the Indian Hill Lacrosse Team and its 77 team members have raised $5,220.00! The team comes together in honor of teammates and families fighting heart disease and in memory of a dear friend of the Indian Hill community, Caroline McKay. Her influence along with several alumni and current team members' own experiences has given the team a greater sense of mission to win the battle against cardiovascular diseases.
INDIAN HILL — For the second time this season, Norwood defeated the Indian Hill High School girls basketball team.
As 60-50 winners on Dec. 9, the girls from the 'Wood ended the Lady Braves postseason run Feb. 22 with a 47-38 victory. Only three Indian Hill girls scored, led by freshman Ellie Schaub with 18 points.
"We don't have a deep bench," coach Chris Arington said of his 16-8 squad.
The game brought to a close the high school careers of his oldest daughter, Jessica, and teammates Mary Ann Miller and Jessica Marsh. On the upside, four starters will return.
After teaming with younger sister, Sam, to lead the team in scoring in 2013, starter Jessica Arington took a supportive role to freshman guard Schaub this season. Schaub averaged 14 points for Indian Hill and scored in double figures in 22 of 24 games.
Her high game of 25 was on Jan. 9 at Finneytown, and she had 49 points in three tourney tilts at Withrow.
