The Fall Sports seasons are coming to an end, so it’s time for another Sports Update! Only here at The U Post can you get hard-hitting University sports news.
The Volleyball team has had a successful year led by captains Ellie Klemsz, Taylor Rodgers, Curissa Jones-Dabney, and Lillian Egloff. The team has had great wins over rivals Sheridan, International School, and Faith Christian. The team currently has an 8-11 record, after facing very tough opponents, going into the final leg of their season. The seniors have been leading by example with Taylor Rodgers leading the team in points (75) and assists (214), and Ellie Klemsz leading the team in attacks (152), kills (78), and solo blocks (17). I had the privilege, neigh, the honor to sit down and talk to Maddie “High Flying” Hoover, C Team sensation. Maddie reflected on her season by saying “There were some wins and some losses, but this rollercoaster of a season has been one to remember.” The team hopes to continue their success into Sectionals, which is soon to come.
Led by captains Trent Thomas, Julien Webber, and Noah Matthews, the Boys Soccer Team is having great success rolling into the home stretch. With a record well over .500, the team strolls into its Sectionals this week. The only losses come from state powers Zionsville, Bishop Chatard, and Guerin. Senior Captain Trent Thomas is currently tied with former Blazer Justin Bair for most goals in a season (11). When asked, Matthews had this to say about his senior season: “This year is different because we lost a lot of starters from last year and a lot of people who were playing JV last year have had to preform at a higher level. Those people are doing so nicely and have really bought in to the system.” Matthews said that his favorite part of the season was beating rival Park Tudor, and he really looks forward to the possible sectional matchup. Coming off of a major win against #15 Tri-West, the team will try to continue their success against Broad Ripple this Wednesday in the Sectional Semi-Final.
Led by captains Bailey Priest, Lizzie Berry, Emma Troughton, and Monica Chavan, the youthful team has a 3-6 record heading into their final two games of the season. The team has had great wins over Scecina (5-0) and Wapahani (9-0). Berry has had a nose for the goal this season, finding the back of the net 10 times. Monica Chavan leads the team in assists with 3. Senior goalkeeper Abby Troughton has recorded 66 saves in the net. International Superstar Marthe Staerkebye is in charge of an impressive line of defense for the Lady Blazers. When asked about the season, senior captain Bailey Priest said that “the season has definitely had ups and downs but we’ve all learned so much and grown together.” The team put up a good fight against a very good Guerin team and showed great adjustments at half time, severely limiting Guerin’s offensive production. The Lady Blazers start their Sectional run today at Bishop Chatard, taking on the home team.
Led by Senior captains Brian Pulawski, Ethan Giepel, Marvin Scott, and Andrew Lupton, the tennis team has had great success this year. For the first time in school history the team beat Noblesville High School. The team also took home first place at the Hot Dog Invitational. When asked to describe how the season has gone, Eric “Forehand Backhand” Metzman, a man of many words, said that “it went great.” That lengthy quote sums up the entire season. The team fell to a very strong Guerin team in their Sectional matchup, finishing off a very successful year.
The Girls Golf team was led by freshman Jenny Bruemmer. The Girls Golf team ended their season on September 20th at the South Grove Golf Course. The team managed to bring home two wins this season. Bruemmer’s lowest score for 9 holes was a 53 on the back nine at South Grove. When asked about her favorite memory from her first year on the team, Bruemmer said, “My favorite part of the season were the bus rides to and from the matches, but the whole [experience] was a lot of fun.” All of the girls consistently improved since the beginning of the year, and there are high hopes for next year’s team.
