Our web year goes from August 1 to July 31. But this time of the year, we look back at the actual year of 2017 and list some of our highlights for the year.

This is the 12th year for the CHL website.  We have come a long way from our first year in which we had 161,000 "hits". December broke a monthly record.  This makes 19 months in a row that we have set a monthly web visit record.  Between January 1 and December 31, we have had almost 3,170,000 web visits!

In 2017, we had three state team titles and five individual state titles.  Lacrosse became a recognized state sport this past spring.  Our league dominated Division II.  Indian Hill girls and Mariemont boys won state championships.  In the fall, Indian Hill girls' soccer was #1 in the Division II state polls most of the season.  The Braves capped it off winning the state title.  At the swimming & diving championships in February, three league athletes took home Division II state titles.  Noah Vigran of Indian Hill won the 1 meter diving with a state record 534 points.  Isabelle Murray of Taylor won the 100 Butterfly.  Her prelim time of 54.37 is a state record.  Cora Dupre of Mariemont won the 200 Freestyle.  In the spring, two more state titles happened at the Division II state track & field championships.  Anna Podojil of Indian Hill won the 200 Dash.  It should be pointed out that Anna had two state championships in 2017.  She was on the Indian Hill soccer team.  Justin Dreyling won the state long jump in a dramatic fashion. His final jump of over 23' not only clinch the state championship but broke the school record.  Noah, Cora, Anna, & Justin will all be back to defend their state titles in 2018.

Indian Hill girls tennis won their 21st straight league title.  Reading wrestling won their 12th straight title.  Wyoming won their 8th straight league in volleyball.  Indian Hill girls' soccer won their 5th straight league title.  Finally, Indian Hill boys' tennis won their 30th overall league title, the most of any league sport.

Indian Hill won the All Sports Trophy for the 2016-2017 school year.  It is the first time that Wyoming did not win the trophy as the Braves edged the Cowboys by 5 points.  Numerous other district & regional titles were won by teams and individuals throughout the year.

Overall, another great year for the Cincinnati Hills League!  Thanks you for your support and lets hope that 2018 will be even better!
