Wyoming volleyball coach Julie Plitt has announced she is stepping down from her head varsity position. Plitt has been a head varsity coach in the CHL for 17 years at two different schools. She started her coaching at Reading where she spent 10 years. The last 7 years, she has coached the Cowboys. Plitt has had 12 CHL championships in those 17 years, 7 at Reading and 5 at Wyoming. Her 5 titles at Wyoming have been the last 5 years. During that time, the Cowboys have won 70 straight league matches which is a CHL record. The previous record was 69 in a row set between 1997 and 2001 when Plitt was at Reading. Her CHL record is 208-19 including 92-6 at Wyoming. Her overall record is 338-78. Plitt's 2013 team made it to the regional semi-finals, a first for Wyoming volleyball. The 2014 team was 7th in the state in the final Division II coach's poll.
Overall, Julie Plitt has achieved some great milestones being one of the most successful coaches in CHL history. Now she will spend more time with her family. Congratulations Coach Plitt and good luck off the court!
As of Tuesday, the fall all conference teams are posted for all of the sports. The winter schedules are almost completed. Basketball & wrestling are done. Swimming & diving will be done by Thanksgiving weekend, although there will be some changes made in the coming days.
Back in the first week of August, the golfers started the season with the league preview. On Friday, November 14th, Wyoming football lost to Alter ending the 2014 fall season for the CHL. Many teams and individuals had great seasons. We crown eight league champs:
Football - Wyoming, for the 2nd straight season. The Cowboys have won 14 straight league games over two seasons.
Volleyball - Wyoming, for the 5th straight season. The Cowboys have won 70 straight league matches, a CHL record.
Boys' Soccer - Wyoming, with a 7-0 league mark.
Girls' Soccer - Indian Hill & Madeira, the 2nd year in a row the two teams tied for 1st. The 3rd straight for the Amazons.
Boys' Cross Country - Wyoming, for the 3rd straight season.
Girls' Cross Country - Wyoming, first title since 2010.
Boys' Golf - Madeira, first title since 2008.
Girls' Tennis - Indian Hill, their 18th title in a row. That is currently the longest league championship streak in the CHL and the second longest ever. The Braves have not lost a league match since the 2003 season.
All Trophy has been updated for the fall (see related story).
Cross country all conference has been posted since it was based on the standings at the league meet. The rest of the all conference will be posted starting Sunday evening through Tuesday. The order of postings will be: boys' golf, girls' tennis, volleyball, girls' soccer, boys' soccer, football.
So now we turn our sights to the winter season. Basketball schedules are posted. Wrestling and swimming & diving schedules will be on the website before Thanksgiving. Bowling & indoor track & field will be non league sports and will not have schedules on the website. So when Deer Park & Norwood girls' basketball tip the ball up on Friday, November 28th, we will begin our winter sports season!
When the SID was doing some research on the wrestling & swim/dive meets, he got curious on the longest league championships in the different sports. There have been 13 championship consecutive win streaks of five or more in 10 different sports. CHL league competition began in the fall of 1985 for all sports except boys' & girls' swimming & diving. Their league titles started during the 1999-2000 school year. The all time leader is Indian Hill boys' tennis. They won 23 straight tennis titles from 1986 to 2008. The Braves also hold the record for most league titles. They have 27 of 28 titles (Wyoming won in 2009). The longest current streak is Indian Hill girls' tennis. They have won 18 in a row.
Here is the list of 5 or more consecutive league championships:
1. Indian Hill boys' tennis 23 (1986-2008)
2. Indian Hill girls' tennis 18 (1997-present)
3. Indian Hill boys' golf 12 (1985-1996)
Wyoming girls' basketball 12 (1989-2001)
5. Wyoming boys' track & field 9 (1991-1999)
