Athletic Campaign

Mornings are noticeably colder and the days are growing shorter which can only mean one thing; Fall sport athletes are ready for the postseason. So grab a cup of coffee, or a hot chocolate, and come out to see our Fall athletes as their hard work and dedication pays off.

  • The Boys Golf Team of Brad West, Silas Horton, Carter Ramoneda, Lane Hughes and Logan Reynolds all braved the cold and rain as they competed in the OHSAA sectional tournament last week. Although we did not have any individual qualifiers for Districts, they all posted solid scores.
  • Miranda Kintz competed as an individual in the OHSAA Girl Golf Championship. Miranda is only a Freshman so she will have a few more years to help grow the sports at CLHS. If you are interested in joining Miranda on the girls golf team, you can get information from the Athletic Office
  • Volleyball won their second consecutive KMAC Championship Thursday night by beating Centerburg 3-1. They will host Mount Gilead Tuesday before entering tournament play.
  • Cross Country had a solid showing at the Crestline Invitational Tuesday with seven runners posted season or personal best times. They will run at Marion Harding this Saturday before rounding out the regular season in the KMAC Championships.
  • Football looks to turn the ship around as they play their final home game Friday and then travel to Fredericktown and Mount Gilead to round out the season.
  • You can get information on all your favorite athletic teams at or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
