On a warm first day of fall, Wyoming boys' golf team won the Cincinnati Hills League Championship tourney, clinching the overall league title.  For the Cowboys, it was their 4th CHL title in the last 5 years and their 11th overall in the CHL.  Wyoming had a score of 315 for the 18 hole tourney at Glenview Golf Course.  Mariemont was 2nd with a 328, one stroke better than 3rd place Indian Hill.  That also gave the Warriors 2nd place overall in the league standings.  Cooper Hausfeld of Wyoming was the medalist with a score of 72.  Alex Major of Indian Hill was 2nd (76) & Dylan Stevens of Wyoming was 3rd with a 78.  Besides Hausfeld & Stevens, the other members of the Cowboy team are Jack Fisher (81), Thomas Stickney (84), Zach Van Fossen (87), and Max Randman (88).

Team scores and individual results will be posted by Friday.  Final league point totals are under the Final Standings link under Boys' Golf.

We have a new link under Boys' Golf.  As many know, the golf champion for the CHL is determined by points, not the win-lost record.  One point is awarded for each team you beat at the preseason tourney.  Two points are awarded to each team you beat during the regular season.  And finally, two points are awarded to each team you beat in the CHL Championships.  The new link under boys' golf is Final Standings.  You can check out where the teams stand on points.  The final points to go on that link will come Thursday after the CHL Championships are finished.

Soccer & Volleyball are in the 2nd half of their seasons.  Golf is the first to be in post season.  Stat leaders are posted on the front page. Season stats can be found under each sport's links. 
Red means league title has been decided.

Two schools in the league will have new athletic directors this coming school year.

Eric Taylor is the new AD at Deer Park but he is not new to the district.  Taylor is a 1996 Deer Park graduate.  Not only will he have the duties of athletic director, he will also be the head varsity football coach for the Wildcats.  The last eight years, Taylor was the head football coach at CHCA.  As a coach at CHCA, he received many honors including Ohio AP Coach of the Year (2013), MVC Coach of the Year twice, and Enquirer Coach of the Year 5 times.  Taylor is not new to the CHL.  Before coming to CHCA, he served as head football coach at Finneytown and spent six years as head wrestling coach at Finneytown & Indian.  Taylor has a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Northern Kentucky University and a Masters in Sports Administration from Xavier.  As the new Deer Park Athletic Director, Taylor will work with Dr. Stace Orso, Deer Park Junior/Senior High School principal, and the District Leadership Team to grow the athletic department, encourage more students to participate in sports, and to build relationships with parents and students at the elementary schools. "I'm very excited about the opportunity to come back to Deer Park as the athletic director and head football coach. As a Deer Park graduate, this community has always been a very special place to me.  I'm eager to lead the Wildcat Athletic Department and be a part of building leaders in the school, on the field field/courts, and throughout the community," said Taylor.  Taylor and his wife Leah, also a 1996 Deer Park grad, have two children Averi and Cael.

Like Deer Park, Reading also looked to the north for a new AD.  Jon Payne will do double duty for the Blue Devils.  Payne will be the athletic director and assistant principal at the high school.  Payne comes to Reading from Bishop Fenwick High School where he has been the athletic director since 2013.  This past school year, he also was the high school assistant principal. Payne has had 17 years of administrative experience. He was director of athletics at Fairborn, Chaminade Julienne, West Carrollton, & Monroe. Payne was also the Faculty Manager of Athletics in Middletown/Monroe schools. He also has taught physical education and has coaching experience in football, track & field, & basketball.  Payne has had experience in managing Division I,II, III athletic tournaments.  He has received numerous awards and honors from the Southwest Ohio Athletic Director's Association, including Athletic Administrator of the Year.  Payne has a Bachelor of Science in Education from Miami of Ohio and a Master of Education from Xavier.  He is also a Certified Master Athletic Administrator.  According to Payne, "I am very excited to be at Reading. I have heard great things about the community and schools.  It is a very exciting time to be a Blue Devil coming off of the successes of the athletic programs last year and the new building on the horizon."

Welcome Eric and Jon to the Cincinnati Hills League!
