Moeller, Seton win Princeton Invitational

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Moeller cross country team, coming off an impressive victory Saturday, easily won the 32-team Princeton Invitational on Wednesday, placing four runners in the top 15.

        Junior Kevin Schwarz, out last year with a stress fracture of the tibia, won the 3.1-mile race in 15 minutes, 42 seconds. Schwarz also took first Saturday at the Moeller Invitational.

        Seton won the girls division of the Princeton Invitational, eking out a 91-92 victory over Turpin. Juniors Karen Berling (sixth) and Karen Korte (12th) led the Saints.

        Turpin freshman Carolyn Rauen was the individual winner in 19:49.

        GIRLS SOCCER: A 1-0 loss to No.1-ranked Cincinnati Country Day in the season opener proved to be motivation for Mariemont.

        Matched against the Indians in the first round of the Madeira Invitational, the Warriors rallied for a 4-1 victory. Madeira de feated Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy 3-1.

        Madeira and Mariemont will play for the championship Saturday.

        “We played solid defense from the front to the back,” Mariemont coach Mike Haney said. “The defense turned into offense.”

        Senior striker Sarah Birkett scored two goals and assisted on another. Sophomore Brittney Rahn and junior Holly Kapela also scored for the Warriors.

        • In a battle of undefeated top-10 teams, McAuley beat Mercy 3-1. Lauren Giesting scored two goals in the first half to set the tone. Beth Rieman and Annette Anciello assisted on the goals.

        GIRLS TENNIS: Melissa McNutt improved to 8-0 at No.2 singles, leading No.9 Lakota West to a 3-2 upset over No.4 Anderson. Both teams are now 7-1.
