Busy fall sports season continues for Mason

The fall sports season at Mason marches on.

The football team is in the playoffs, the boys cross-country team is heading back to state and the girls soccer and volleyball teams were two wins from the state semifinals.

The boys cross-country team slogged through the muck and mud on the levee banks of the Great Miami River in Troy in claiming the Division I regional title with 61 points.

Mason placed four runners in the top 15, paced by a third-place finish by Abel Nijakowski in 15:52.1.

The girls soccer team advanced to the regional semis with a 1-0 win over state-ranked Beavercreek in the district finals.

The Comets were slated to play defending Division I state runner-up Springboro in the regional semis.

The volleyball team cruised through the sectional and district finals without dropping a set.

The Comets defeated Lakota East 3-0 in the sectional final before eliminating St. Ursula 3-0 to claim the district crown.

Mason played Ursuline Academy in the regional finals Thursday.

The Mason girls cross-country team, however, saw its season end with a seventh-place finish in the regional meet with 195 points.

Rue Whitmore was the top runner for Mason, finishing 30th in 19:28.2

The boys soccer team was upset by St. Xavier 1-0 in the district finals

Lebanon: The boys cross-country team finally broke through the barrier.

After missing out on advancing to the state cross-country meet in the past, the Lebanon boys punched their ticket with a fourth-place finish with 181 points.

Lebanon had two runners in the top 15 with Sam Duncan leading the way with a 10th-place finish in 16:22.0.
