In addition, a weekly look at the past week's top performers can be found in the MVC Athletes of the Week section. This is a very popular feature and all selections come from the head coaches themselves.
As Sports Information Director for the conference, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you come across any errors or misspelled names along the way!
Good luck to all of our athletes, coaches, athletic directors, administrators, and parents who make the Miami Valley Conference the premier small-school league in the state!
OHSAA Brings Back "Respect the Game" Initiative
The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has brought back the Respect the Game program due to increased incidents of poor fan behavior across the state. Bottom line, as fans we have to do a better job of how we treat officials, opposing fans and athletes, and our own athletes. Read more HERE. Visit the Respect the Game website HERE.
MVC Athletes of the Week
The MVC is recognizing Athletes of the Week at the middle school level. Like our conference high schools, coaches will submit their student-athletes and each recipient will be posted here weekly.
WEEK ENDING DECEMBER 10
Clark Montessori eighth grade girls basketball player Kristen Earley is recognized for her performance in our game against Cincinnati Country Day. She scored 22 points, dished out four assists, and grabbed nine rebounds (including five offensive). She is a leader for our team and a positive student who is an A-B student athlete!
MVCA Purple boys basketball player Hudson Sherf averaged 13 points per game in three wins this past week. He also played outstanding defense. Colton Pierson tallied 11 points per game for the MVCA Silver squad (all wins), as well as playing tough defense in the post.
Cincinnati Country Day boys swimmer Dima Chernovol sometimes considers himself a single event athlete as he is so strong in his 100 breaststroke, but as coaches we wished him to step out of his comfort zone and enlisted him in the 500 free and the 50 free. He got a PR in both events and especially showed prowess in the 50 free where he has now earned a spot in the top 4x50 relay team. Great work and hard-working attitude!
Cincinnati Country Day girls basketball player Gabby Santiago has shown great courage stepping into a major starting role as a seventh grader. In a tough, physical game against Clark Montessori, she did not shy away from the moment, but instead embraced the challenge playing well on both sides of the ball. She’s begun looking for her shot more frequently and grown in her communication skills on defense just through two games. We can’t wait to see how she continues to improve as the season goes on!
Norwood seventh grader girls basketball player Izzy Asher scored nine points and collected three steals against CCPA. Eighth grader Aniyah Henderson tallied eight points and three rebounds in a match-up against CHCA.
Norwood seventh grade boys basketball player Carter Callahan scored 10 points and collected five steals and six rebounds against Cincinnati Christian.
Norwood wrestler Damien Hunter went 4-0 with four pins during this week’s competition. As a second-year wrestler, Damien consistently works hard and is extremely dedicated to the sport of wrestling.
WEEK ENDING DECEMBER 3
Cincinnati Country Day swimmer Stella Riggs demonstrated excellent courage and compassion in the two swim meets last week. Stella is competing in swimming for the first time this year and showed great grit and perseverance in her events. She set personal-best times, and not only set the bar for herself to continue to exceed throughout the season, but earned points towards her team’s victory in a quad at home vs. Clark Montessori, Kings, and Miamisburg on Monday and placed in the top four in both of her events during the team’s victory in Wednesday's dual meet vs. New Richmond. Stella also showed great compassion for teammates and proudly represented CCDS when she was not swimming in her continual support of her teammates in and out of the pool.
MVCA Purple boys basketball squad downed Lebanon Saturday in its season opener. Player of the game was Garrett French with 12 points, two steals, and a pair of assists.
Eighth grader Hunter Gunter had 12 points and eight rebounds in Cincinnati Christian's season opening win against Summit Country Day.

Maddie is a dedicated wrestler and leader who also maintains straight A's in the classroom. CJ also went 4-1 with four first period pins to earn a second-place finish at the New Richmond. CJ works extremely hard on and off the mat and is a great example for his peers.
