 Dustin Horter Sets Regional Record

On a cold, windy day in Troy, OH, fast times were not being churned out.  However, that did not stop Lakota East senior, Dustin Horter, from destroying the Regional and course record by 9 seconds this past Saturday.  Dustin covered the 5k (3.1 mile) course in 15:02.54, more than 25 seconds ahead of the next finisher, Conant Smith of Middletown.  Dustin has won 3 straight Regional titles.  He will attempt to win back-to-back State Championships next weekend at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH.  The Lakota East men’s team unfortunately did not qualify to the State Championships but the Thunderhawk men gave it their all.  Seniors Logan Stumpf, Ryan Jones, Joe Mislansky, and Adam Johantges gave the race everything they had and they will truly be missed next year.  The East men placed 11th in the 17-team field.

HORTER WINS STATE AGAIN!

SENIORS FINAL CC RACE "ONE FOR THE AGES"!

Lakota East senior Dustin Horter put an exclamation point on his high school cross country career this past Saturday at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH. Horter etched his name into the OHSAA Cross Country record books by becoming the fifth male athlete to win back-to-back Division 1 State titles (modern day records). Dustin joins an elite group of individuals who have accomplished this tremendous feat; JJ White (91,92, Dublin), Allen Bader (00,01 LasSalle), Jeff See (03,04, Middletown), Zack Wills (08,09,10 Mason) and now Horter (16,17).

With all eyes on him, expectations and intentions to win, and the weight of the world on his shoulders, Dustin had to battle Middletown junior Conant Smith down to the very last strides of the 5k (3.1 mile) race to defend his crown.  From the starting gun, it was a 3-man race between Horter, Smith, and Matt Scrape (Pickerington Central). 

At the halfway point of the race, Horter and Smith broke away and battled side-by-side for 1.5 miles.  Once the two athletes entered the grandstands with 200 meters to go, Dustin fended off two passing attempts by Smith.  On Smith’s third attempt, Dustin surged ahead to win by 0.4 seconds.  Dustin’s time was 15:03.4 to Smith’s 15:03.8. 

To cap it all off, it was also Dustin’s birthday and most of the crowd joined in on the chorus of “Happy Birthday” in a magical moment while he sat atop the podium one more time. 

" For the past four straight seasons at East, Dustin has been a perfect blend of talent, work ethic, and sportsmanship," said ecastatic head coach Adam Thomas.   "No one deserves this honor more than him.  It has been an honor and a privilege having him as a member of the LEXC Family."

CONGRATULATIONS DUSTIN! HAWK PROUD OF YOU!

9/30 Midwest Meet of Champions @ Hilliard Darby, Ohio      

The Lakota East women’s cross country team competed at the highly competitive Midwest Meet of Champions this past Saturday at Hilliard Darby High School.  The cool weather and fast course conditions led to some lightning fast performances by the Thunderhawk ladies.  The varsity team placed 3rd out of 26 teams despite not racing with two of the usual varsity runners.  Leading the charge for East was sophomore Danielle Horter, who placed 17th overall in the 186-runner field.  Danielle’s personal record of 18:49 for the 5k course placed her at #7 on the all-time Lakota East women’s cross country performance list.  Bouncing back from recent injury and running #2 for the Hawks was junior Ali Neumeier, placing 25th overall in a time of 19:02.  The next two East runners had breakthrough performances, junior Lindsay Isom placed 28th overall in a time of 19:08 which is a monster personal record and the 10th fastest time all-time at East, and senior Holly Thompson placed 50th overall in a time of 19:34 which is the 14th fastest time in school history.  Rounding out the scoring for Lakota East was junior Kaitlyn Smith who placed 75th overall with a season-best time of 19:54.  Sophomore Hailey Wilson led the Freshmen/Sophomore team to an impressive 2nd place team finish with her 4th place overall finish in a personal record time of 20:34.  Next up for Lakota East Cross Country is the G.M.C.

GIRLS CC FINISHES 2017 SEASON 10TH AT STATE!

A YOUNG TEAM BODES WELL FOR EAST GIRLS CC!

The Lakota East women’s cross country team had a goal of finishing in the top 10 in the young group’s first trip to the OHSAA State Cross Country Championships.  They achieved that goal.  The Thunderhawk women placed 10th out of 20 teams at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH. 

Freshman Carly Spletzer continued her comeback from injury to lead the team with her 50th place finish in an impressive time of 19:04.6 for the 5k (3.1 mile) course.  The next Hawk across the line was sophomore Danielle Horter who placed 61st overall in a time of 19:15.5.  Freshman Kelsi Harris tied her personal record time of 19:19.5 to place 64th.  Junior Ali Neumeier came in next 70th place in 19:27.8.  Rounding out the scoring for East was junior Lindsay Isom who placed 92nd in 19:49.7.  The 7th runner for the Hawks was junior Kaitlyn Smith who placed 130th in 20:24.9.  The number 6 runner for Lakota East at State was the lone senior on the team, Holly Thompson, who placed 110th overall in a time of 20:03.4. 

"The LEXC family welcomed Holly over with open arms from soccer this Fall, and she provided the one missing piece of the puzzle to this amazing girls’ team, a true leader both by example and voice," said East head coach Adam Thomas.  "Her impact on this team will echo for years as her leadership skills have been taught and passed down to the younger athletes on the squad.  The LEXC Family will miss you Holly, but more importantly, THANK YOU for all you did for us this Fall."

With so much young talent, the Hawks have a lot to look forward to in the coming years. Congratulations to all the ladies and their coaches on a memorable 2017 season!

8/25 @ Walnut Hills won 24-21 1-0 0-0

The 2017 Thunderhawk football team opened their 2017 season with a 24-21 win at Walnut Hills this past Friday night. East's offense outgained the Eagles 303-146 in total offense on the night and possessed the ball by a 34:12 to 13:48 margin. The Hawks allowed WH to stay in the game committing 4 turnovers.

Running back Jack Debrozsi statistically was a big part of the East scoring rushing for 186 yards on 33 carries with 3 TD's.

The Hawks will be on the road again this coming Friday when they visit Kings. The Knights will come into the contest also as winners last Friday, defeating Lebanon 37-31.

 
9/1 @ Kings won 34-27 2-0 0-0


East's junior running back, Jack Debrozsi, rushed for 5 TD's last Friday night to carry the Hawks to a 34-27 win at Kings. Debrozsi's 5 touchdowns in a single game is a new Lakota East school record and tie's him with 5 other Lakota players who have accomplished the feat. Jack carried the ball 37 times and rushed for 217 yards on a miserable weather night. QB Dylan Fry and Jeffrey Garcia also piled up big yardage evenings with 75 and 79 yards, respectively.

The Hawks jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but Kings battled back to even the score at 21-21 at the half. East would strike twice again in the 2nd half and then hold off the Knights in the final minutes of the game.

East goes to 2-0 on the season and will host Princeton in their home opener this Friday night in the Hawks nest. The Vikes are 0-2, losing to West Clermont and Springfield.

TONIGHT IS FUTURE HAWKS NIGHT!

Lakota East's annual Future Hawks Night begins at 5:30 p.m. Eastside early childhood and elementary schools will be providing music, games and giveaways for some pre-game fun. At 6:10 p.m., students will have the opportunity to gather with their school community for a Future Hawks parade around the Hawks Nest. Admission is free to pre-game festivities and the football game for feeder school students in grades K-6. Students must attend the pregame festivities for free admission to the game. There is a general admission fee of $7 for adults and students in grades 7-12. 

Lakota High Schools Celebrate 20th Anniversary with Fireworks

This year marks 20 years that Lakota High School split into Lakota East and Lakota West high schools. 

All week long, Lakota East students and staff have been celebrating this milestone. A special spirit week had staff members dressing in black tie apparel, wearing outfits from the decade they graduated from high school, and more.

The festivities will culminate tonight at the Lakota East vs. Princeton varsity football game. The fun will include Future Hawks Night before kick-off, and after the game there will be a Rozzi's fireworks show.

 
9/8 Princeton won 24-14 3-0 1-0

On a beautiful evening last Friday night the Hawks Nest was filled fireworks on and off the field. East celebrated their 20th anniversary with a 24-14 win over visiting Princeton to go to 3-0 and secure their first GMC win of the young season. It was all about the running game again in the Hawks win over the Vikes. East piled up 293 yards on the ground as junior RB Jack Dobrozsi rushed for 113 yards and 2 TD's. East RB Jeffrey Garcia also had a big evening rushing for 110 yards on 10 carries and a TD.

The Hawks ran out to a 11-0 lead at the half and built on the margin in the final frame at one point leading 24-7. The Vikings scored a TD in the last few seconds, but the contest was out of reach most of the game for Princeton. Brady Wilson and Jackson Leahy both wrapped up 7 tackles on the evening.

Next Friday, East will invade Indian territory with an away game against a very good Fairfield team (1-2). Last week Fairfield defeated Lakota West 10-3.

 
9/15 @ Fairfield lost 48-14 3-1 1-1

The East Football team suffered their first loss of 2017 last Friday, falling at Fairfield 48-14. The Hawks were never close in this battle to a very good Indian team. After two quarters of play East was down 27-0, but to their credit held FF scoreless in the 2nd quarter. East got on the board in the third quarter on 13 yard pass from Dylan Fry to Evan Yablonsky. East final point on the night was a Jack Dobrozsi 37-yard run at 9:53 in the final quarter.

Statistically, East got out gunned 403-235 on the offensive side of things. Jeff Garcia led East with 88 yards rushing on 11 carries. Dobrozsi finished with 66 yards on 10 carries.

The Hawks (3-1, 1-1) will regroup this week and host winless Oak Hills (0-4, 0-2) on Friday night, Sept. 22nd. The Highlanders fell to Lakota West last week 31-24.

 
9/22 Oak Hills won 42-28 4-1 2-1

East Football stays among GMC's top teams this past Friday with a 42-28 win over visiting Oak Hills. East held a tight 7 point advantage at halftime then were able to salt the game away in the final two quarters of play. It was all about the ground game on the evening as the Hawks gained 441 yards rushing on a total offensive output of 476 yards.

East was led by junior RB Jack Dobrozsi's 202 yard effort on 23 carries. Dobrozsi's 5 TD carries in the game ties his own school record, which was attained earlier this season against Kings. QB Dylan Fry did some running of his own carrying the ball 12 times for 107 yards. Jeffrey Garcia had his best rushing night with 132 yards on 11 carries and a TD.

Next up its a mid-season, Battle of the Lakota's this Friday night! East will invade Firebird territory in the annual rivalry game between the two district high schools as the Hawks will be seeking their 2nd win in a row, winning last season 21-14. East comes into the contest with an overall record of 4-1 and 2-1 in the league. West whose record is just the opposite (1-4, 1-2), lost 28-0 at Mason last week. As usual you can throw out the records when these two teams get together. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as a large crowd is expected.

Date and Time 
September 29 2017 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Location  East vs West Football Game (at West)

9/29 @ Lakota West won 35-0 5-1 3-1

The Lakota East High School football team picked up its second consecutive win Friday night by suffocating Lakota West for a 35-0 victory inside a packed Firebirds Stadium. East makes it two consecutive wins over their district rival, also winning last season 21-14. The game didn't have its usual "end of season" meeting as 2017 marked a move to the mid-season for this classic game between the two advosaries.

The Thunderhawks’ triple-option rushing attack kept West off balance from beginning to end, accounting for 363 of East’s 437 total yards. Junior fullback Jack Dobrozsi, the Greater Miami Conference’s top rusher, collected 138 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 16 carries.

After a 0-0 first quarter, Dobrozsi opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown, capping off a nine-play drive.

Through six games, Dobrozsi is comfortably leading the GMC with 922 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. His 60-yard TD run, his longest run of the season, pushed the East lead to 28 late in the third.

East extended its lead to 14 with just over a minute left in the first half on the second Thunderhawk passing touchdown of the season. Junior running back Sean Church took a pitch from quarterback Dylan Fry and threw down the sideline, finding Evan Yablonsky for a 23-yard touchdown.

Fry, a junior, carried 14 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns, his first two scores of the season. Fry’s first TD pushed the East lead to 21-0 in the third quarter, while his second touchdown punctuated his team’s win.

Church and Jeff Garcia rounded out the rushing attack for East, running for 48 and 59 yards, respectively.

For West, which is 1-5 overall and 1-3 in the GMC, a costly turnover and untimely penalties barricaded the Firebirds from turning 334 total yards into any points.


West had promising drives end abruptly in the early moments of the game. Dropped screen passes and a costly holding penalty killed a drive as the Firebirds attempted to respond to falling down 7-0. On their very next drive, West squandered a first-and-goal opportunity by settling for — and missing — and 31-yard field goal try.

East (5-1, 3-1) now sits alone in third place in the conference behind Colerain and Fairfield. The Thunderhawks will travel to Colerain next Friday, while West visits Princeton.

 

 
10/6 @ Colerain lost 38-13 5-2 3-2

The Thunderhawks held off perenial powerhouse Colerain for almost three quarters of last Friday's battle between the two GMC foes. After two quarters of play East held a 13-10 advantage over the Cardinals. A 19-yard third-down TD pass with 2:35 left in the third quarter gave the Cardinals the lead for good pulling away for an eventual 38-13 win at Cardinal Stadium.

Colerain raced out to a 10- lead in the first quarter but the Hawk battled back. Senior running back Jack Dobrozsi, who went into the game leading the GMC in rushing with 922 yards, sparked Lakota East’s first scoring drive with a 32-yard burst on the first play of the next possession, and he capped it with a three-yard touchdown run on fourth down with 10:33 left in the first half. Senior defensive back Peyton Bruce’s acrobatic interception at the Thunderhawks’ 23-yard line set up Lakota East’s go-ahead touchdown on senior quarterback Dylan Fry’s 67-yard post pattern to junior Evan Yablonsky for a 13-10 halftime lead. The fifth-ranked Thunderhawks actually outgained Colerain by almost 100 yards, 207-108, in the first half.

Colerain finished with 317 yards of total offense, 209 in the second half while limited Lakota East to 27 yards of total offense after halftime.

“A lot of it was hats off to Lakota East and coach (Rick) Haynes,” coach Tom Bolden said after the game. “We played more to their tempo. At halftime, we had to make adjustments in three areas – game, attitude and tempo.”

East QB Dylan Fry finished with 152 yards passing on 4/7 completions and two TD's. Dobrozsi carried the ball 11 times for 52 yards and a TD. Coby Boller and Jackson Leahy made 12 tackles for the East defense. Brady Wilson had 9 and Sal Larubbio had 7.

Lakota East (5-2, 3-2), ranked sixth in the region computer ratings, are scheduled to play Hamilton this Friday at home. Big Blue (2-5, 2-3) fell to Sycamore last Friday 24-13.

 
10/13 Hamilton won 30-21 6-2 4-2

Through eight games, the Lakota East High School football team’s hopes for a Division I playoff berth remain intact.

The Thunderhawks scored the game-winning points on a safety Friday night to earn a 30-21 victory over visiting Hamilton, setting up critical showdowns with fellow Region 4 playoff hopefuls Sycamore and Mason to finish the regular season. The game featured 580 total rushing yards. Senior Jeff Garcia led the way for East (6-2 overall, 4-2 GMC) with 114 yards and two touchdowns on just nine attempts. His first TD opened the scoring, and his second provided insurance late in the third quarter.

The contest was a close one in the first half, with neither team scoring until the 2nd quarter (7-7) at half. East's score came on a Jeff Garcia 25 yard rush.

In the third quarter East fell behind 14-7, but then scored two quick TD's and a safety before the 4th on a Michael Howard 35 yard run and Jeff Garcia 25 yard jaunt. Both of Tommy Capano's PAT kicks were good. Howard added another 7 yard TD run to round out the East scoring on the night.

Sophomore Michael Howard rushed 13 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Dylan Fry, the team’s second-leading rusher on the year, gained 90 yards on 16 attempts. He did not complete any of his four passing attempts.

The Tomahawks FB program was recognized in pre-game ceremonies on Friday night. See pic above.

The Thunderhawks are tied with Sycamore and Mason for third place in the GMC behind Colerain (6-0) and Fairfield (5-1). East will be at SHS next Friday. The Aves (6-2,4-2) pounded Oak Hills last week 42-6 and are also in the playoff hunt.

 
10/20 @ Sycamore lost 40-13 6-3 4-3

The Lakota East Football Team fell at Sycamore last Friday, 40-13. The Hawks got down early, fought valiantly, but couldn't stay with the Ave offense. East didn't get on the board till the fourth quarter. Sean Church provided a 65-yard punt return with less than 6 minutes remaining.

East will host Mason this Friday, for the final home and senior night. The Hawks still have a senario where they could reach the playoffs with an upset over the #5 ranked (Region 4 rankings) Comets. East is currentlly #10 in the post season rankings. The top 8 teams will qualify for the postseason.

Kick off is slated for 7:00 pm in the Hawks Nest...come out and support the team!

 
10/27 Mason lost 36-0 6-4 4-4

The East Football teams ended their season last Friday on a miserable evening weather wise and results-wise. The Hawks fell to Mason by a final score of 36-0 and thus conclude their 2017 campaign at 6-4 and 4-4. The Comets held a 29-0 lead at the half.

With the wind and rain pounding the players and fans on senior night, the Hawk offense struggled to maintain any consistency held to just 126 yards on offense on the night. Chris Whitehead led East rushing with 42 yards on 10 carries.

 
           

FOOTBALL SEASON RECAP

The Hawk Football program had an up and then down season in 2017. A promising start at 6-1 ended with 3 out of 4 losses. The Hawks finished with a winning season at 6-4 overall and 4-4 (5th place) in the GMC. As always a highlight for the Thunderhawks this season was a 35-0 shutout of their District rival Lakota West. East will return in 2017 with a strong group of seniors and hope to challange for a league title and a return to the playoffs.

The course is world class, and the greens were very fast, and firm, resulting in some high numbers for all of the teams.  East shot 321---our highest score of the season, but finished 5th out of 11 teams.  Kyle Schmidt led the way with a 77.  Alex Dunaway and Brock Aten both shot 80's while Drew Mahon shot 84 and Peyton Houston 85.

10/12 OHSAA Districts @ Glenview 2nd      

Boys Golf Headed Back To State!

For the second consecutive season the Lakota East Boys Golf Team will return to the OHSAA Boys Division 1 State Golf Championship. The Thunderhawks turned in a tremendous performance Thursday at the Division I district tournament, finishing second at Glenview Golf Course.

East totaled 301 strokes and trailed only two-time defending state champion St. Xavier (292) on the par-72 course. Mason (308) also grabbed a team spot at the state tournament, which is set for the Ohio State University Scarlet Course in Columbus on Oct. 20-21.

Junior Kyle Schmidt paced the Thunderhawks at district with a third-place individual finish. He carded a 37-34—71 on an overcast, damp day at the Glenview links.

Seniors Drew Mahon (37-39—76) and Alex Dunaway (40-38—78) also scored for the Thunderhawks, as did sophomore Brock Aten (38-38—76).

There are 27 holes at Glenview — the East Course served as the front nine, while the South Course was the back nine. The back tees were used, meaning the event played more than 500 yards longer than the Greater Miami Conference tournament that was held at Glenview last month.

The Southwest District is arguably the strongest in Ohio, at least in recent years. The last three D-I state champions — Moeller won it in 2014 — have come from this area.

East finished seventh in the state in 2008 and last year. The 2016 tourney was shortened to 18 holes by inclement weather.

“We’re very excited. It’s so hard to get to Columbus," said East head coach Jeff Combs. “Getting back to state was one of the expectations of our year. We’ve played with the best teams in the state all year long. If we play our best, we can hang with them.”

The Thunderhawks have been GMC champions the last four years. Mason has been the runner-up each season.

The last time two GMC schools advanced to Columbus in the same year was 1994. Fairfield and Lakota were the state qualifiers.

“This is a great day for the GMC,” Combs said. “We were rooting hard for Mason. Our guys love all their guys, and we like their coach (Tim Lambert) a lot. They’re as good as we are. Anytime we beat them, we’re really excited.”

The 2017 season for the East boys soccer team (6-10-2 overall) (4-4-1 GMC) did not produce a lot of wins, but the Hawks were still noted by area coaches as a talented and tough team to beat.

Game Summary
8/26 @ Centerville lost 1-0 0-1 0-0

Women’s Soccer Falls to Centerville in Season Opener

According to Head Coach Tom McEwan, minimizing mistakes will be critical for the Thunderhawks this season if they are to be successful. On a roster where 12 players have zero varsity experience, mistakes are bound to happen.  

One such mistake, a misplayed ball out of the back, led to the only goal of the game.  Unfortunately, it was a goal for the winning Centerville Elks.  

“We knew heading into the season that inexperience would be a major hurdle for us,” said McEwan.  “We have a tremendous amount of soccer talent, we just need to figure out how to tie it all together.” 

“Our schedule is nothing short of brutal,” said McEwan.  In addition to the gauntlet of GMC foes, the Thunderhawks will face four of the nation's Fab 50, as determined by TopDrawerSoccer.  First up will be five-time consecutive Division I champions Walsh Jesuit, who will travel down to southern Ohio to play at the Hawks Nest on Saturday, September 2. 

But first up is a match at Turpin on Wednesday, August 30. “Turpin is playing some of the best soccer in Cincinnati tight now,” said McEwan.  “It's just another opportunity for growth under pressure,” said McEwan. 

GO HAWKS!

8/30 @ Turpin won 3-2 1-1 0-0

Thunderhawks Take Down Spartans 3-2

The Lakota East Thunderhawks traveled to Turpin Wednesday evening to take on the Spartans, currently ranked #3 in Cincinnati.  Turpin came into the match undefeated at 3-0-0, having not surrendered a goal in their first three outings. 

An extremely productive week of practice for the Thunderhawks showed on the field. Senior Abby Stoughton, junior Kate Larbes and freshman Meghan Creech, each scored for the Hawks, who pressed the Spartans continuously throughout the night and sustained intensity for 80 minutes.

“We knew playing Turpin at their stadium was a tall order,” said Coach Tom McEwan.  “They have a very talented group of young ladies and are extremely well-coached.” 

The rewarding aspect of the match was that all 21 rostered players played a hand in the victory, having made valuable contributions this week both at practice and during the match,” said McEwan.  “We have a young team with limited play at the varsity level, they are still learning how to play together. There are times when we play an incredibly poised game of soccer and other times when we are just frantic and disorganized.  The burden of bringing everything together rests squarely on the shoulders of the coaches.  It's our responsibility to maximize our deep pool of talent and find ways for everyone to contribute. There are some very solid players who have yet to make major contributions who will be called upon throughout the season.”  

“We are still far from where we want to be, but we are closer than we were yesterday. As a coach, that's all you can ask for, said McEwan.” 

It was a productive night across the board for the women’s soccer program.  The JV team found themselves in a quick 0-2 hole and managed to fight back, scoring the game winner with :06 seconds left, to come away with the 3-2 victory.  

“It was a beautiful night for soccer and we had a tremendous showing of support from parents who continue to make our program an incredible one to be a part of,” said McEwan.   

Next up East will host fiv- time consecutive state champion, Walsh Jesuit, on Saturday, Sept. 2nd.

9/2 Walsh Jesuit (Cleveland, OH) lost 5-1 1-2 0-0

Thunderhawks Fall to Nationally Ranked Walsh Jesuit

The Walsh Jesuit Warriors (ranked #5 nationally) traveled to Lakota East (1-2-0) on Saturday afternoon to take on the Thunderhawks. 

The evening started on a high note when Lakota East’s JV team beat Walsh 1-0, a rare loss for the Warriors.  “The intensity of the JV game was phenomenal,” said Head Coach Tom McEwan.  “They set the tone for the remainder of the evening.”

Unfortunately, the varsity team was unable to match the intensity and came up significantly short in a 5-1 setback at the hands of Walsh Jesuit.

“I will take responsibility for that loss,” said Coach McEwan.  “It's my job to have the team prepared and I fell short. We are a young team and I had hoped that we could figure out what it takes to play and compete with teams at that level, but our inexperience showed.” 

Coach McEwan noted, “Our first two losses this season have come at the hands of teams ranked in the Top 10 in the state, so we have nothing to be ashamed of.  We start GMC league play on Thursday with an away game against Sycamore and things don't get any easier.”  Walsh was the first of four Top 50 teams in the U.S. that the Hawks square off against this season.

The JV game at Sycamore on Thursday kicks off at 5 p.m., followed by the Varsity match at 7 p.m.

GO HAWKS!

9/7 @ Sycamore lost 1-0 1-3 0-1


underhawks (1-3-0) tallied 10 shots to the Sycamore Aves’ three shots last night, but came up short 0-1 in a league game. 

“It’s pretty simple,” said Head Coach Tom McEwan.  “We have to find a way to finish. We do some great things during the run of play, but for whatever reason we are reluctant to put balls on frame.”

The JV team continued to find the back of the net and finished a dominant performance 4-1. 

Next up for the Hawks is #4 state-ranked Springboro at Wade Stadium on Saturday evening. JV kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and the Varsity match is at 7:15 p.m.

9/9 @ Springboro tied 0-0 1-3-1 0-1

Hawks Play Tough Against Touted Springboro Team

The Lakota East Women’s Soccer Team faced off against the Springboro Panthers in an away game on Saturday evening and came away with a 0-0 tie.  Springboro, the #4 state-ranked and National Fab 50 team finished the 2016 season as state runners-up to champions Walsh Jesuit.  Returning the bulk of its 2016 team, the Panthers entered the game as heavy favorites.

"It's always difficult to travel and square off against a team the caliber of Springboro" said Head Coach Tom McEwan.  “The home crowd and student section was large and vocal.”

The Hawks knew that Springboro would be one the more challenging games this season, but they were ready for the challenge and held the Panthers to a scoreless tie.  “For soccer purists, a tie is often the same as a win,” noted McEwan. 

“For our defense and keeper junior Madison Hart to secure a shutout is impressive,” said McEwan.  “Springboro has so much depth and they play with such urgency and creativity.  It was literally 80 minutes of action-packed soccer.” 

“The easier approach to the season would be to schedule softer opponents, but I have never seen the opportunity for growth in a schedule that lacks challenge,” said McEwan.  “Slowly we are starting to figure this game out.”

The JV team came away with an equally difficult tie at 1-1.  Much like the Varsity schedule, the JV team matches up week in and week out with some solid opponents.  “They continue to impress with the intensity of their play,” said McEwan.

Next up for the Thunderhawks (1-3-1) (0-1-0) is another away game against league opponent Hamilton on Tuesday.  JV kicks off at 5:30, followed by the Varsity match at 7:15 p.m.

The Lakota East Thunderhawks traveled to Annapolis, Maryland, to take on the Bruins of Broadneck High School on Saturday.  The team departed after school on Friday and made the trip via charter bus.  

First up on Saturday morning was a special 90-minute team tour of the U.S. Naval Academy.  It was a great educational opportunity for the players and coaches.  "It was impressive to hear the history of the Academy and just see the phenomenal campus and surroundings." said Coach McEwan.   The tour itself would have been reason enough to visit Maryland, but the Thunderhawks had games Saturday night, as well.

Broadneck High School women’s team won the Maryland 4A State Title in 2015 and were defeated in the Final 8 last season.  According to Coach McEwan, “We had more than a few people ask us once we arrived, ‘What are you guys doing in Maryland?’”

“Over the years, I've been fortunate to make some great connections in the soccer community and continually seek out challenges for our teams,” said Coach McEwan.  “I spoke with Coach Hamm at Broadneck High School last year and we were able to put the trip together.  Without question, this trip was not only the furthest distance from home, but also more of a logistical challenge.”

The JV team started the night, and started slowly at that.  It was a back-and-forth battle the first half.  The second half was all Thunderhawks.  The game ended 5-0 in the Hawks’ favor as the JV team dominated the remainder of the game.

The Varsity team came up short 1-3.  "Probably one of the most impressive teams we will play all season," said Coach McEwan.  “Without question, we gave up two preventable goals and that was unfortunate,” said Coach McEwan.  As per their usual, the Hawks kicked up the intensity the second half and made it a game, coming away empty on several scoring opportunities.  

“Am I disappointed in the loss? Without question,” said Coach McEwan.  “You always want to win, but trips like these are more than just about the wins and losses.  You hope that they bring players closer together and expose them to different styles of soccer.  The compliments we received throughout the course of the weekend on the demeanor of our players, both on and off the field, speaks volumes about the character of our program,” said Coach McEwan.

“If you would have told me we would come up short in the game before we boarded the bus on

Friday, I would have still made the trip,” said Coach McEwan.  “It was an honor traveling with this group; they represented the Lakota District with pride!”  

The Thunderhawks will be back in action on Wednesday at Princeton.  JV kicks off at 5 p.m., followed by the Varsity match at 7 p.m.

GO HAWKS!

 

9/20 @ Princeton won 1-0 3-5-1 2-2

Thunderhawks Victorious Over Princeton

The Thunderhawks traveled to Princeton on Wednesday to take on the Vikings in a GMC matchup and came away with a 1-0 win to even their GMC record at 2-2.

The JV team started the night with a 6-0 win over Princeton.  

The Vikings’ varsity team deployed a strong defensive strategy as they faced the Thunderhawks in the second game of the evening, putting nine players behind the ball and venturing over midfield only on long counter attempts.  

It took until late into the second half for the Varsity Thunderhawks to tally their lone goal, which was scored by freshman Meghan Creech.  Once the Thunderhawks scored, the Vikings launched a full-squad counter and the game was played full field.

"Any time a team ‘packs it in’ and plays for the tie, it’s frustrating," said Head Coach Tom McEwan.  “By the same token it's an effective strategy to limit the scoring chances of your opponent and it almost worked to their advantage.” 

Next up for the Thunderhawks (3-5-1) (2-2-0) is Olentangy Liberty on Saturday at the Hawks Nest.  JV kicks off at 11 a.m., with the Varsity match following at 1 p.m.

The Thunderhawks will honor Hillary Carter, who played at Lakota East and is now part of the Olentangy Liberty soccer staff, at halftime (INFO).  Hillary was part of the successful East teams in the early 2000s.  Her father currently serves as the Chief of Police for the University of Cincinnati Police Department and her family still has strong Lakota ties.  Please offer your applause for Hillary at halftime when we recognize her for being an outstanding representative of Lakota East as a student athlete and alumna.  

GO HAWKS!

9/23 Olentangy Liberty lost 1-0 3-6-1 2-2

Thunderhawks Fall in Close Matches to Olentangy Liberty

Lakota East Women’s Soccer Team hosted Olentangy Liberty on Homecoming weekend and came away with losses in both games.  JV lost 0-2 to an impressive Olentangy Liberty squad.  The varsity squad surrendered the lone goal of its game at the 1:15 mark and dropped the match 0-1.  Both sides had multiple chances to score, but failed to convert the remainder of the match.

The Lakota East program honored Olentangy Liberty coach and former Thunderhawk standout Hillary Carter at halftime.  Hillary graduated from East in 2004 and went on to play at Earlham College, where she graduated as their leading scorer.  Hillary was an all-Ohio player while at East and continues to give back to the game she loves.  Hillary was a teammate of current Lakota East coaches, Emily Kessler (Miller) and Lorrin Patrick (Bertsch).

The Hawks (3-6-1) (2-2-0) return to action at the Hawks Nest on Tuesday versus GMC rival Colerain.  JV kicks off at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Varsity match at 7:15 p.m.

9/26 Colerain won 2-0 4-6-1 3-2

The Lakota East Thunderhawks took on the Colerain Cardinals in the Hawks Nest on Tuesday evening, and both the JV and Varsity squads came away with victories.  

The JV team kicked off the evening with a commanding 5-0 victory. 

The Varsity squad struggled throughout the match to find a rhythm, but eventually settled down and started stringing together a series of passes.  

Sophomore Alexis Trammel put in the first goal from distance, with an assist from sophomore Jackie Amaya, to get the Hawks on the board.  Although the Hawks managed to put some quality balls behind the Colerain defense in the second half, they couldn't quite get on the end of them until freshman Reyna Mijangos managed to track down a through ball from freshman Sophia Amaya and beat the keeper to secure the second goal and the 2-0 victory.

Hawks Advance to District Semi-Final with Thrilling PK Win

There was plenty of action from the beginning to end at the Hawks’ second-round tournament game against West Clermont in Batavia last evening.  It took 90-minutes of regulation, two 15-minute overtime periods and penalty kicks for the Hawks to claim the 2-1 victory and move on to district semifinal round.

The West Clermont Wolves scored early in the second half of regulation.  With 18 minutes left in the match, sophomore Alexis Trammel scored off a perfectly placed ball from senior Abby Stoughton to equal the score at 1-1, which remained the final at the end of regulation.  Both teams played aggressive soccer throughout the two overtime periods, but some great defense and near misses kept the game locked up and ultimately headed to penalty kicks to decide the winner.

The Hawks’ PK shooters did their job, but it was junior keeper Madison Hart who came up huge for the Thunderhawks, with two fantastic layout saves to clinch the victory.

“We appreciated the fan support on Thursday evening and look forward to having plenty of fans in their Hawks gear in the stands on Monday to cheer us on to a victory,” said Head Coach Tom McEwan.

Girls’ Soccer Season Ends with Tough Loss to Mason in District Semi-Final Game

The Hawks season came to an end last night with a 1-0 loss to the Mason Comets in a Division I district semi-final game played at Sycamore High School.  Steady rain and wind made for some interesting on-field conditions throughout the night.  Both teams worked hard the first half, but neither was able to score.  Mason broke the scoreless tie on a breakaway midway through the second half to go up 1-0.  Although the Hawks had a few opportunities late in the game, they were unable to finish.

Congratulations to the team on its hard work throughout the season and a special thank you and nod of appreciation to seniors Alexa Bencic, Emma Collett and Abby Stoughton.  Much appreciation to our fans who supported us throughout the season.

GO HAWKS!

           

GIRLS SOCCER SEASON RECAP

The East Girls Soccer Program played one of the most challenging schedules of any team in Cincinnati this season. Although their overall record didn't reflect more wins (7-10-2, 4-4-1) than losses, the Hawks competed against some of the best teams inside and outside the state in 2017. East girls had 6 losses this season by one goal along with two ties. The difficult schedule will hopefully pay dividends going forward for the young and talented Thunderhawks in 2018.
