Everyone wonders how their school’s sports teams are doing and The Milestone Online is here to report the mid-season stats of all the sports. The winter sport’s teams are in the midst of their games, practices, and competitions and here are their results.
As of Jan. 3, men’s varsity and JV basketball teams both hold 3-5 records. The freshmen team, however, holds high spirits after having a near-perfect 7-1 record.
“We’re coming together more since the beginning of the season. I was disappointed with our performance early on, but we are progressing,” men’s varsity basketball player Aaron Albrink said.
Women’s Varsity Basketball is in a rebuilding year, and as of Dec. 28, holding a 2-8 record. The JV team is looking up with a 6-1 record, and the freshmen team is still striving for their first win with a 0-9 record.
“We have a young team this year, but we’ve made a lot of improvements since the beginning and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know all of the new girls,” women’s varsity basketball player Ali Miller said.
Men’s wrestling, under the new leadership of head coach Mr. Jason Babinec, currently holds a 3-1 record with wins over Northwest, Roger Bacon, and Mariemont.
“I hope my team wins King of the Hill this year. We haven’t won it in a while so it would be cool to win it this year,” varsity wrestler Joe Daly said.
At mid-season, men’s bowling has a winning record of 7-5 with wins over Badin, Goshen, Summit Country Day, CJ, and Turpin. The team has also set a new school record of highest team score for a single game: 1,035 between five bowlers.
“We are doing really well this year. We are a lot more cohesive this year and we have a lot more team spirit,” men’s varsity bowler Tristan Dumont said.
Women’s bowling currently has a 3-5 record with wins over CJ, Fenwick, and Summit Country Day.
“The girl’s bowling team has a losing record, so it’s not a great feeling, but we have improved over the season. Every girl is getting more confident, so I think we will get some more wins under our belt,” women’s varsity bowler Allison Hickman said.
The swimming teams have competed in four meets. At the Mason Invitational, Olivia Fitzpatrick finished 5th overall in the 100 yard individual medley and 6th in the 100 yard backstroke. The girls’ 400 relay team finished 9th overall. McNick’s swimmers have also competed against Dayton Carroll, CJ, Mariemont, Purcell Marian, and Summit Country Day.
“Our season is going well this year. We lost early on some guys that were going to swim, but we should do well in the end. Individually I am getting better and so is my team,” senior swimmer Patrick Rehl said.
Cheerleading and Dance:
The dance team and cheerleading squads have been busy practicing and performing for McNick during the men’s basketball games. The dance team competitions begin on Feb. 5 at East Central High School in St. Leon, Indiana.
“Everyone on our team loves our new coach. Her choreography and our new costumes are great this year. I’m really looking forward to performing at the basketball games this year,” dance team member Courtney Dunne said.
