CINCINNATI HIGH SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS
St. Ursula wins soccer title
The St. Ursula girls soccer team needed a win or tie with Seton Wednesday to claim the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet Division championship.
Relying on a strong defense and outstanding goaltending by Emily Bohart, the Bulldogs fought to a scoreless tie with the Saints at Saylor Park.
This was two defensive teams going after each other, Seton coach Dan Donovan said after his team recorded its fifth straight shutout.
It was St. Ursula's 10th shutout in the last 11 games and gave the school its first Scarlet Division championship. Until this season, St. Ursula competed in the GGCL's smaller Gray Division.
Ranked No.1 in The Enquirer's Division I poll. St. Ursula finished the season with an 11-1-4 record, losing only to Mercy 2-1 on Monday.
In other action, Mason clinched the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Cardinal Division championship with a 1-0 victory over Glen Este at Glen Este.
Rachel Minnich's goal with 15 minutes remaining off an assist by Tiffany Lawson was the difference.
They have great speed and played a good defensive game, Glen Este coach Julie McCaffrey said. We'll probably play them again in the sectional tournament.
After sharing the Cincinnati Hills League title last year, Wyoming's goal was to win it outright this season.
The Cowboys achieved that goal with a 6-0 victory over Deer Park, closing out CHL play with a 6-0-1 record and 10-3-2 over all.
Monica Hoyles, a junior striker and the team's leading scorer, scored two goals, raising her season total to 26 while Robin Fulton also scored twice in the victory.
Ross has been tough to beat in the FAVC Buckeye Division.
After falling behind to Norwood 1-0, the Rams tallied three goals with Sara Wertman scoring with four seconds remaining before halftime on a head ball to make it 3-1.
VOLLEYBALL: Turpin wrapped up the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye Division championship with an easy 15-3, 15-5 victory over Anderson.
Turpin coach Amanda Brant said it's the school's third straight league title; the past two years, Turpin won the Queen City Conference American Division.
