11/3 State Championships @ National Trails      

The amazing cross county tandem of Kelly Burrows and Abbie VanFossen represented Lakota East and themselves very well at the State Meet this past Saturday.
Burrows ended her Lakota East career with an exclamation point producing an All-Ohio performance at the National Trails Course. Her 18:31 for the 5k was a 15 second personal record to finish 18th overall in the girls race. Kelly leaves Lakota East cross country as the 5th fastest female runner in school history.
Sophomore Abbie VanFossen earned a spot on the State podium Saturday after placing 14th overall. VanFossen ran a personal record of 18:19 for the 5k race to earn All-Ohio recognition status. Abbie sits alone as the 2nd fastest female runner in Lakota East history. With two more years to go, great things can be expected of this super talented runner.


Congratulation to both of these outstanding young ladies on all their accomplishments this season!

8/24 Western Hills won 42-7 1-0 0-0

East Football notched an opening night 42-7 blowout against Western Hills. The game was never in question as the Thunmderhawks scored 4 TD's in the first quarter. East generated 366 yards of total offense.

Senior RB Will Mahone had a big night rushing for 143 yards and 3 TD's. The Defense held WH to just 217 yards. Chamada Palmore ran for 47 yards and a TD.

Next up East will host Winton Woods next Friday at the Hawks Nest.

 
8/31 Winton Woods lost 25-20 1-1 0-0

The Football team fell to Winton Woods last Friday by a score of 25-20. Winton Wood held a lead of 25-14 with just under 5 minutes to play. The Lakota East offense, lead by junior quarterback Eric Eichler, orchestrated a phenomenal late-game drive that resulted in senior running back Will Mahone’s third rushing touchdown of the contest, this time on a four-yard scamper with 1:34 remaining in the game and all three timeouts. The two-point conversion attempt was unsuccessful, making the score 25-20. The Thunderhawks knew they needed to recover an onside kick to have a chance at winning the game, and they did just that. Unfortunately for Lakota East, their luck ran out as a fourth down pass attempt fell harmlessly to the turf, giving possession back to Winton Woods to allow them to run out the remainder of the clock.

Lakota East also had a productive night on the ground, lead by Mahone’s 133 yards rushing and three touchdowns, his second consecutive 100+ yard, three touchdown game. Eichler picked up 73 rushing yards himself on 19 carries.

Next up East visits Northmont on Friday, Sept. 7th.


 
9/7 @ Northmont won 17-14 2-1 0-0

Lakota East sophomore kicker Grant Smith made a short field goal as time expired in a 17-14 win at Northmont Saturday night. Smith finished the game by making all three of his field goal attempts.

Overall, the Lakota East offense dominated the time of possession battle – winning 30:28 to 17:32 – but needed every second in the 4th quarter.

Trailing 14-6 entering the quarter, the Thunderhawks blocked a field goal, scored a touchdown on a 2-yard run by junior quarterback Eric Eichler, converted a two-point try and saw Smith make his game-winning field goal.

For the game, Eichler finished with 80 rushing yards on 16 carries. He also completed 5-of-10 passes for 65 yards and had an interception.

Helping the Thunderhawks out rush Northmont – 213 to 50 – on the ground were running backs senior Will Mahone (40 yards on 15 carries), senior Chamada Palmore (35 yards on 10 carries and junior Bobby Brown (58 yards on 10 carries).

Defensively, junior defensive lineman Sam Stephenson led Lakota East with 6 total tackles and 2 sacks. Also, senior linebacker Blake Bostick and senior DL Ben Bostick each recorded a sack in the win.

Leading the Thunderbolts’ offense was senior quarterback Cameron Belton, who completed 12-of-19 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown. East visits Oak Hills next Friday.

 
9/14 @ Oak Hills won 40-20 3-1 1-0

Lakota East raced to a two-touchdown lead four minutes into the game and held on for a 40-20 win at Oak Hills Friday night in the Greater Miami Conference opener for both football teams on Friday night.

FIREBIRD UPSET SENDS THUNDERHAWKS TO THE PLAYOFFS


The Lakota East football team ended a seven-year losing streak to Lakota West on Friday night with a 33-21 victory over their District rival. A cold and and rainey evening didn't dampen the Thunderhawk faithful as they celebrated the upset of the highly favored Firebirds like it was sunny and 80 degrees. It was the Hawks first win over Laktoa West since the 2004 season. The West streak started the final game of the 2005 season, with a 30-27, overtime win . Ironically, that was the last season East finished with a winning record (7-3).
The drought against West ended on Friday with an exclamation point as East earned their first ever berth in the OHSAA Region Four playoffs. Previously, the Thunderhawks had only two other seasons in the programs 16 year history that produced potential playoff opportunities (2004, 2005). East (7-3 overall) finishes the 2012 regular season at 5-2 in the GMC, tied with Lakota West for 3rd place. The Thunderhawk win knocked West out of the playoff picture.
Springboro, the No. 2 seed, will host East in the first round this coming Saturday night at 7:00 pm. The game will take place at CareFlight Field on the Springboro High Campus. The Panthers finished the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record and were 5-0 in the Greater Western Ohio South Conference. East has never played Springboro.
After falling behind West 7-0 early in the first quarter, Lakota East senior running Chamada Palmore evened the score with a 25-yard touchdown run. Palmore finished with 69 rushing yards on eight carries.

Eichler also scored through the air when he found senior Keith Brady for a 26-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter that put East ahead 21-7. Lakota East got on the board first in the second half when senior safety Rob Harpring returned a punt 56 yards for a touchdown to give East a 27-14 advantage. Senior Nate Mays clinched the win for Lakota East when he intercepted Grove (West qb) and returned it 25 yards for the touchdown.

Lakota East Shocks Springboro
To Advance in the Postseason


It was a historic night for the Lakota East Football team and their program at CareFlight Field on Saturday. Playing their first postseason game in the 16-year history of the school, the Hawks produced a thrilling upset win that advances them to the second round of the OHSAA Regional Playoffs. East (#7 seed) shocked the #2 seeded Panthers with a mix of big plays on offense and defense. The Thunderhawks jumped out to an early lead against the Springboro Panthers and then hung on for a thrilling 45-38 overtime win.

Since Lakota split into two schools in 1997 (16 years) the Hawks had come close but never participated in a postseason game. East earned the No. 7 spot in the Region 4 bracket after upsetting district rival Lakota West 7 days earlier. Similarly, Springboro qualified for the postseason for the first time since moving from D-II to D-I in 2006. The program won all of its regular season games this fall for the third time in school history and for the first time since its jump to D-I.

If the Thunderhawks had any playoff butterflies it didn’t take long for them to disappear. Will Mahone took the first play from scrimmage 76 yards to the Springboro 4 yard line to set up East’s first score of the evening. Two plays later the senior running back rushed two yards to give the Hawks an early 7-0 lead. The Panthers tied things up 7-7 with 2:14 left in the first quarter on a 1-yard QB sneak into the end zone.
The two teams traded possessions in the first 12 minutes following their scoring drives. East intercepted a Springboro pass in their own end zone to start the 2nd quarter and deny the Panthers the lead. With 8:00 minutes remaining in the half, senior Chamada Palmore ripped off an 80 yard touchdown run to put East in front 14-7. East stunned the Panthers again when Eric Eichler hits Bobby Brown with a 25-yard TD pass with 5:32 left in the half (21-7 East). Springboro scored again on a short TD pass with less than a minute left the half (21-14).
The second started with a Nate Mays interception and the Hawks got underway on their own 20. The drive ends with a Nick Gasser 42-yard field to put East ahead 24-14 at 7:22 in the third quarter. The quarterback/receiver combo of Eichler and Brown struck again with less than 6 minutes left in the third on a 58-yard TD toss (31-14). The Panthers kept pace scoring on quarterback keeper to make it 31-21 with under 3 to play in third.

In the final quarter the fireworks were just getting started. Eichler threw his third TD pass of the game on a 22-yarder to Jake Chestnut with 9:33 left in the game (38-21). Things looked good for the Hawks, but to their credit Springboro wasn’t ready to end their season. Two minutes after the Hawks took a 17-point lead the Panthers score on a long TD pass to make it 38-28 Hawks. A thirty-eight yard Boro field goal with 4:13 left gets the Panthers within a touchdown at 38-31.
Springboro comes all the way back to tie the came in final seconds of regulation on a 25 yard TD pass sending the game to overtime (38-38).
In overtime, Springboro won the coin toss and elected to play defense. Eichler then completed an 18-yard pass to Palmore, who was tackled on the 2-yard line. A play and a false start penalty later, Eichler gave East a 45-38 lead on a 6-yard touchdown. The Panthers then took it down from the 20-yard line to the 2, but failed to punch it in earning East their first playoff win in their first opportunity.
East rolled up 433 yards of total offense compared to Springboro’s 430. Junior quarterback Eric Eichler was 4/8 passing for 124 yards and 3 TD’s. Senior Chamada Palmore rushed for 129 yards on 11 carries and 1 TD. Senior Will Mahone carried the ball 10 times for 91 yards and touchdown. Bobby Brown caught two passes for 83 yards and two TD’s. Jake Chestnut had 1 reception for 22 yards and a score.


The win sets up a 2nd round match between Lakota East and the No. 3 seed Moeller Crusaders next Saturday, 2:00 pm at the University of Cincinnati. It will be the first ever meeting between the two schools. Ticket information is still TBA.

REGIONAL SEMI-FINALS

vs. Moeller

2:00 UC

lost 46-20 8-4 5-2

It was a beautiful fall afternoon for a football game on Saturday, November 10th as Lakota East faced Moeller in the Regional Semi-Final Sweet 16 at the University of Cincinnati. It had been almost 17 years since a Lakota District team played in a football game as big as Saturday's event. The Crusaders lived up to their storied tradition as a gridiron powerhouse going on to defeat the Thunderhawks by a score of 46-20 and end Easts historic season.

In the first quarter East took the opening kickoff and produced 5 consecutive first downs. The Thunderhawks stunned the Crusaders at 4:25 left in the quarter when Eric Eichler rushed 3 yards into the end zone for an early 7-0 East lead. Unfortunately, the Hawks wouldn't score again in the game until the closing seconds of the third quarter. Moeller's offensive machine was virtually unstoppable as they rolled up 6 scoring drives and built a lead that was never in question.

East proved their triple option offense could score against anyone in the post season, racking up 358 yards of offense on the day and producing 20 first downs. Leading East on the day was senior Chamada Palmore who gained 98 yards on 15 carries and scored a TD. Junior QB Eric Eichler rushed for 60 yards and two TD's. Bobby Brown caught 3 passes for 67 yards.

The season comes to a close, but not the memories. East finished with their best overall record since 2005 at 8-4 that included a 2-game post season run. East football is back in 2012 and the future looks very bright with a talented core of players who will certainly want another taste of the success this year's team experienced. Congratulation to all the players and coaches on a great, great season! See you in 2013!

East Tennis Qualify 5 to District Tournament
It was a successful weekend for Lakota East tennis at the Centerville sectional tournament qualifying 5 of their 7 team members. On Friday, all of the Thunderhawks won their first round matches. In the first round singles draw sophomore Paige Silverberg (#3 seed) defeated her Xenia opponent 0 & 0, sophomore Ashley Williams defeated her Lakota West opponent 1 & 5, and junior Katherine Zins defeated her Beavercreek opponent 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. After three weeks off due to injury, senior Taylor Holden joined up with sophomore Maddy Mueck in the doubles draw. Both Holden & Mueck and senior Leeah Floyd and doubles partner junior Haley Harrison had 1st round byes as the #2 and #4 seeds.

Silverberg kept her winning streak alive in the 2nd round soundly defeating Chelsea Hohenbrink from Miamisburg 6-0, 6-0. Both Thunderhawks doubles teams recorded wins in the 2nd round of the doubles draw as well with Holden & Mueck handily defeating Miamisburg 0 & 0 and Floyd& Harrison defeating Fairmont 0 & 4. Third Round victories would mean a spot in the sectional semi’s and qualification to districts. The 5 remaining East players would not be denied this opportunity. Paige Silverberg earned her semi spot and second trip to districts with another solid performance defeating Lakota West’s Danielle Clarke 6-2, 6-1. Our doubles teams followed suit with Holden and Mueck defeating Fairmont’s Coordonnier & Cooney 6-0, 6-0, earning Holden’s 4th trip and Mueck’s 2nd trip to districts. Floyd and Harrison had a little more difficult road to the semi’s as they battled against Beavercreek’s top doubles team, normally their 1st & 2nd singles players, Ostrow & Harron in a 3 set match. Floyd & Harrison came back from a 1-4 deficit in the first set to win 7-5, Beavercreek battled back in the second winning 6-3, but Floyd & Harrison came out determined in the third set closing out the match 6-0. This would be Floyd and Harrison’s 2nd trip to districts as well.

The semi and final rounds would determine seeding for the district tournament to be held this Thursday and Saturday, October 11th & 13th at the ATP Tennis Center. Silverberg was not able to fight off the #2 sectional seed Julie Brockman (Springboro) in the semi’s losing 2-6, 0-6 but rebounded in the next match to earn #3 seed in districts by defeating Fairmont’s Allison Bendel 6-0, 6-0. Floyd & Harrison found themselves up against Lakota West’s top 2 players, Tori Turner & Nicole Soutar, in the semi and lost 0-6, 4-6. Floyd & Harrison rebounded in the final match earning a #3 seed as well defeating Springboro’s Davis & Riddle 6-3, 6-1. Holden & Mueck defeated the same Springboro team in the semi round 6-0, 6-0 which earned them the spot in the finals against their crosstown rivals Turner & Soutar. After many hard fought points Holden & Mueck couldn’t hold of the Lakota West duo, 1-6, 4-6, and earned the sectional runner-up title and #2 seed going into the district tournament.

District Championship

ATP Tennis Center, Mason

        The Lakota East doubles team of senior Taylor Holden and sophomore Maddy Mueck has earned a trip to the OHSAA State Tennis Championships next week in Columbus.  The dynamic duo finished 2nd at Saturday's Southwest Ohio District finals to punch their ticket to the Division 1 State Tourney next Friday and Saturday. Taylor is the first East female tennis player to qualify for State all 4 years.  Mueck on the other hand is making her first trip to State, but is very familar with the territory.  Her brother, Zach Mueck (Class of 2012) was a three-time state finalist.  Zach and Maddy may be the first ever brother/sister combo to play in the state tournament. 

After the first two rounds of the district tennis tournament on Thursday, both Thunderhawks had already qualified for the "big dance".  East's opponent was on their heels from beginning to the end of both matches.  In round one Holden and Mueck defeated Kristen Behrens and Grace Kallenberg from Ursuline 6-0, 6-1 and continued to dominate in the 2 nd round defeating Haley Hopkins and Rhadika Pandit from Mason 6-0, 6-0.

The GMC was well represented in the semi and final rounds with all four doubles spots coming from GMC schools (Lakota East, Lakota West, Mason and Sycamore).  All four schools paired their regular season 1 st  and 2 nd singles players together to make a run at the district doubles title.

The Holden/Mueck duo were well in control of their semifinal round match on Saturday against Mason's Nina Cepeda and Lynn Kelly, defeating them by a score of 6-1, 6-2.  The semifinal victory setup a cross town match-up versus Lakota West (Tori Turner/Nicole Soutar).  East battled back and forth against the West team for three sets.  Each set included 4 to 5 service breaks. The first set found the teams in a 6-6 tiebreaker that went to the Firebirds (7-6).  East would even it up in the second set winning 7-5. The Lady Hawk duo continued to battle in the final set coming back from a 1-4 deficit to a score of 4-5. Lakota West ended up wining the District Title by a final of 6-4.

Next Friday's first two round will be held at the OSU Tennis Facility. Saturday's semifinals and finals move to Hilliard Davidson High School.  For information, seedings and results click here.
