On their home course, the Mason men came out on top. For some, this was their debut race of the season. That includes junior Zach Wills, who ran the race practically alone, finishing 20 seconds faster than he did last year on the same course. Mason was competitive in the last mile and that made the difference. Senior Matt Kahl gained 2 key places in the last mile, moving from 6th to 4th. Matt Kincaid and Alec Schlosser both beat out LaSalle’s 4th man, doing their part to seal the win. Senior Eric Hauser also ran very well on this tough course, improving his time from last years Mason race by 36 seconds. The course features straw-bale jumps, a creek crossing and the famous “mulch hill.”

Zach Wills Mason 14:54

The Mason Comets traveled to one of the best cross country venues in the Midwest. They competed against the best of Indiana’s cross country programs (and incidently some of the best programs in the Midwest), namely, Columbus North, Carmel, North Central. Also at the meet was rising OH power, Sylvania Northview.

Mason had it’s hands full and lacked some of the sharpness that will come as the season progresses. However, outstanding performances included senior Eric Hauser, who was Mason’s 3rd man in the race. He finished in 16:28 in 33rd place—a season and personal best.

Everyone was talking about the matchup between Zach Wills and Futsum Zeinasellassie, a sophomore that finished 7th at the Foot Locker National Meet in 2008. Wills gave him a race from the gun, putting 30 meters on him before the mile mark and never looked back. He finished the course in a near-record time of 14:54, just 7 seconds off the record. That is a season and personal best time for Wills.

Even though Mason put all 7 guys in front of West’s 5th man, it wasn’t quite enough to counteract West’s top 4. The Comets will refocus for the district, regional and state meets ahead.

Saturday the Girls Cross Country Comets were in action at the hilly confines of Harbin Park in Fairfield. The team was strong to say the least!!The girls occupied 10 out of the first 25 spots in the race.

The A team placed first over a very strong Sycamore team, and the B team (our next 7 runners) placed 3rd overall in the team scoring. This depth is unprecedented in Mason Cross Country and very rare. Our B team actually beat the Colerain A team, along with about 20 other teams from around the city. It was a great showing, and the girls should be quite proud.

Chelsea Hoffmaster led the Comets, with Jessica Harrison not far behind. Mackenzie Jensen, Cari Caprio and Alyssa Ross rounded out our scorers and made a strong statement about the strength of this team.

The Girls Cross country team had a great outting at the first annual St. Ursula Running Spot Classic. The teams were divided into Fresh/Soph races, and Jr/Sr races. This is a very different format, but it didn't matter to the girls who dominated both races! The teams both won their races, and did so very convincingly. In the Freshman Sophomore race, the team was led by Mackenzie Jensen who had a season best time, and ran toward the front placing 5th overall. She was followed by an awesome pack of girls coming in very close together including newcomer Tori Martin, Freshman Maddy Baehre and veterans Alyssa Carman and Bridget McElhenny. It was a great showing, and the girls looked very strong.

In the JR/Senior race the team was led by a pack of Jessica Harrison, Chelsea Hoffmaster and Cari Caprio, and not far behind was Brenna Hallum and Alyssa Ross. This squad looked great too, and saw many personal and season best times. Jessica Harrison was the top runner for mason overall, placing 2nd overall.

The Girls’ CC Team finished 2nd to St. Ursula (same as 2008) on Saturday.  The Comets looked to be in a commanding position after 2 miles of the 3.1 race.  But in the last kilometer (.62 mile) things didn’t go well as SUA rallied and took the lead winning by a scant 2 points.  Jessica Harrison led the way for the Comets with a season best time of 19:54, followed closely behind by Chelsea Hoffmaster.  For the first time in her career as a high school varsity racer, Briget McEhlenny was part of the scoring team, as she raced to a great overall time, and a near personal best.

Both teams will be back in action next week as they face tough competition in the Alliance Invitational in Dayton.

he Mason Girls Cross Country faced their toughest competiton yet. The Springboro girls team is very talented, and they came to the meet ready for a fight. They clearly ran their best yet this season, and gave our girls a very hard time. The Comets ran tough, logging our best times of the season, and we put up a good fight.

The girls packed it in, and put 4 girls between 19:29 and 19:41, with one just a few seconds off the pace. This was our best pack running of the year, and a good team effort. Jessica Harrison led the way again, with a personal best time of 19:29. She ran tough from the gun, and took a top 15 place at this very prestigious meet. Monica Lake Returned to action, to fill the gap left by Cari Caprio who was on a college visit. Chelsea Hoffmaster continuted her stellar season just a few seconds back, and BRIDGET MCELHNENNY ran great. The fifth man (woman) is key in cross country and she did her part.

Overall the Comets looked tough. The season is shaping up quite well, but many teams in the area are very good. It should be a tough battle this season, but the girls look ready for war.

Comet Comback!

The Mason Comet football team put together bookend quarters scoing ten points in the 1st and 4th quarter to win their season opener in the Skyline Crosstown Showdown agains Trotwood.

The Comets had to overcome mother nature and a sluggish restart on Friday when the contest was delayed by lightning on Thursday night. Mason led 10-0 when play was stopped during halftime. It looked like Trotwood had the upper hand when the game resumed on Friday, scoring 14 unanswered points on their way to a 14-10 advantage heading into the final frame. The Comets showed character and resolve on their next possesion, capping off a 73-yard scoring drive when QB Alex Farren passed to WR Ronald Swonger on a 4-yard TD catch making it 17-14 Mason.

Trotwood tied it up at 17-all on a 35-yard field goal with 5:55 left in the game.

Again, Mason responded. Farren’s sneak on fourth-and-inches inside the 15-yard line kept a drive alive. Andrew Grage’s 32-yard field goal with 1:45 remaining proved to be the difference, lifting the Comets to a come-from-behind 20-17 triumph over the Rams. Grage also had a successful 36 yard FG in the first quarter.

Nick Wehby picked off Trotwood’s Marcus Graham with 1:23 to go to seal the Comets’ victory. Notable stats included a 8-yard Farren to Ethan King TD on Thursday night. Farren finished with 16 competions on 26 attempts for 173 yards and two TD's. David Fulcher Jr. rushed for 78 yards on 15 carries.

10/9 HAMILTON won 17-7 2-5 1-3


It was a homecoming special for the Comets as they celebrated this special evening by knocking off the Hamilton Big Blue on a rainy, dreary night at Atrium Stadium. But the Comets made sure there was nothing dreary about the outcome of the game surprising the favored visitors with a final score of 17-7.

Hamilton drew first blood on a 39-yard run at the 4:48 mark in the first quarter. That was all the offense Hamilton could muster the rest of the evening. The Comet defense playing with intensity and focus held Big Blue to 192 yards of total offense.

Josh Dooley gave Mason field advantage blocking a Hamilton punt deep in their own territory in the 2nd quarter. Four plays later Gabe Shreve converted a fourth and 1 with a 15-yard TD run to tie the game. The halftime remained 7-7 going into the locker room.

Mason took the lead for good with 2:05 left in the third quarter when quarterback and homecoming king Alex Farren hit Nick Wehby with an 11-yard touchdown pass. Andrew Grage put the game out of reach with a 34-yard field goal with 2:08 left in the contest

Farren finished with 121 passing yards on 13 completions. Shreve was Mason's top rusher with 13 carries for 51 yards. Andy Porter made 5 solo tackles on the evening.

The win breaks a 5 game skid for the Comets who will entertain the Colerain Cardinals next Friday.

October 23, 2009


COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Mason girls’ golf team ended their season on Saturday right where they had hoped…as Division I State Champions and winning back-to-back state titles. The Comets put recent tournament disappointments behind them topping GMC rival Lakota West by 9 stokes carding a 316 team score.  St. Ursula finished third overall one stroke behind the Firebirds. 

“We battled Lakota West all year, and we also knew that a very talented St. Ursula team would be a formidable opponent,” said head coach Fred Reeder.  “I'm just so proud that the girls fought through all the adversity and proved they are indeed the best team in the state yet again.”

Three of Mason’s top golfers from last year repeated their performance this year. Junior Emily Wright shot a team-best 76, while junior Erin Michel and junior Jessica Zhang both shot 78.  Other Mason scores included senior Chelsea Sturtevant with an 84 and senior Deanna Mychalishyn scoring an 87. 

For the second time in state history the tournament was reduced to 18 holes after the first day of play was cancelled due to rain. The last time the tournament featured only one round was in 1996. Although still cold, the rain held off Saturday allowing golfers to finish the 40th annual event played at the Ohio State University Gray Golf Course.

“They exceeded my expectations with their play in the state tournament, and as a coach, no matter how the match or tournament turns out, that means everything,” said Reeder.  The Comets will look to “Three-Peat” in 2010 with a tested and talented group of underclassman returning.

The Mason boys’ soccer team finished their 2009 conference schedule on Tuesday with a 2-0 victory over Hamilton earning them their 2nd GMC title in the past three seasons. The Comets finished with an undefeated league record of 8-0-1 and overall mark of 12-0-2 with remaining regular season games against Loveland and on the road against Fairmont.

"As a coaching staff, we are extremely proud of our players," said head coach Paul Reedy. Year after year the GMC is considered one of the toughest soccer leagues in the state. This season was no exception as the city’s top five teams were all from the GMC, making the Comets accomplishment even more significant. Mason is currently ranked as the cities No. 1 boys soccer team and No. 3 in the most recent state soccer polls.

This season the Comets had to fight through more than their share of adversity according to Coach Reedy. "Tyler Galley and Corey Campbell, our senior captains, have led the way on the road to this years title effort." The Mason defense has shined this season producing 8 shutouts behind the Comet back line and the goal keeping of senior Dan Matthias and junior Cody Bowling. Senior Caleb Eastham is in the top three in scoring stats in the GMC.

The Comets have earned the #1 seed in the upcoming sectional tournament. They will face the winner of the Harrison/Princeton game on Saturday, Oct. 24th at Princeton High School. Game time is set for 1:00 pm.

won 7-0 15-1-2 8-0-1


On chilly wet evening at Princeton High School the Comets looked to advance to the District Finals against #11 seed Walnut Hills. On the line for both teams was a berth in the District Finals.

The evening started off well for the states 6th ranked Comets. Five minutes into the match Caleb Eastham struck a long shot from 35 yards out that found the back of the net, setup by a header by Adonis Vergara (1-0). Approx. 7 minutes later Corey Campbell hit a ball into the upper 90 (2-0). With 13 minutes remaining in half Mason Hoge nailed a goal off a direct kick from 33 yards out (3-0). With 2 1/2 minutes remaining Jay Ebersole scored off a goalie deflection (4-0).

Going into halftime the Comets led 4-0.

It didn't take long for the Comets to get things going after the break. Less than a minute into the 2nd half Caleb Eastham got his second goal of the night off an assist by Alexander Hamm(5-0). Two minutes later Eastham knocked home a hat trick for his third goal of the night (6-0). Alex Newport got an assist from Mason Hoge for Mason's final tally of the evening (7-0) with 32 minutes remaining.

Cody Bowling and Dan Matthias combined on the shutout with 3 saves a piece. The GMC Champion Comets extended their record to 15-1-2 overall. They will face the #2 seeded Centerville Elks (10th in state) coming out of the Dayton District who defeated Sydney by a score of 1-0. The Elks will enter the match with an undefeated record of 11-0-5 and finished second this fall in the always tough GWOC Central Division.

The #1 seeded Comets will look to replicate their 2007 District Championship on Saturday (Halloween) at Lakota West Soccer Stadium. Game time is set for 7:30 pm.

District Championship

Mason (#1 seed) vs.

Centerville (#2 seed)

7:30 @ Lakota West

won 3-1 16-1-2 8-0-1

October 31, 2009


LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- The Mason boys’ soccer team put on a scary performance on Halloween night earning them a District Championship against Centerville High School.  The Comets defeated the Elks 3-1 at Lakota East, winning with strong defense and an offense that was relentless all night long.  It was a “trick and treat” night for Mason senior forward Alexander Hamm as he scored all three goals for his team. 

“Our experienced really helped us tonight against a younger Centerville squad,” said head coach Paul Reedy.  “The early goal by Alexander, off a great assist by Mason Hoge, changed everything and you could just see our confidence build.” 

The Comets had the better of it most of the first half, although keeper Dan Matthias came up with some big stops. With 5:12 left the first half Hoge delivered a corner kick to Hamm who headed it to the back of the Centerville net putting the Comets ahead 1-0.  Hamm struck again at 5:03 into the second half on an unassisted goal (2-0). He completed a hat trick with his third goal of the night at the 51-minute mark (3-0). Matt Bond was credited with an assist on Hamm's third goal.

Centerville scored on a PK by Matt Spier with 18 minutes remaining in the contest to round out the scoring.

“Our defense was outstanding tonight against some very quick players,” Reedy said. “We were able to keep the play in front of us most of the night and not dive in.”

This is Mason’s 2nd District Title in the past three years and advances their overall record to 16-1-2.  The Comets will face Beavercreek in the Regional Semi-finals on Tuesday night at 7:00 pm.  The Beavers defeated another GMC foe, Fairfield, by a score of 3-0 to advance.  The location of the contest has yet to be confirmed, but most likely will be played at Lakota West.  The Firebirds defeated Sycamore 3-0 in an earlier contest to also advance.

The Mason Girl’s Soccer Team gave Andy Schur his first win as their new head coach while upsetting the country’s No. 1 ranked program, the St. Ursula Bull Dogs on Tuesday night at the Mason Soccer stadium.  The Comets defeated the two-time defending state champions 1-0 with senior forward Megan Frye scoring the games only goal in the first 10 minutes of the game off an assist by sophomore mid-fielder Haley Haffner. 

“The Comets came into the match as the clear underdog,” said 1st year coach Andy Schur.  “All of the ladies on our team were confident that they could compete with the highly skilled and very talented Bulldogs.” 

The contest was a back and forth affair with St. Ursula getting the majority of the possessions.  The Comets counter attack provided the offense with numerous scoring opportunities.  The Mason defensive unit shined throughout the evening led by senior goalkeepers Kimmy Connor and TIna Mathur, combining for the team's first shut out of the season.  Mathur had a key stop in the second half on a diving direct kick that she deflected over the bar.

9/17 COLERAIN won 6-1 4-0 3-0


An early goal by Liz Finley got the Comets off to a good start. Courtney Hoenicke had the assist on the goal and that became a common theme for the evening. Hoenicke assisted on three of the Comets 6 goals while playing a great game in the central midfield. The Comets would lead 4 to 1 at halftime on 2 goals by Kristin Leist and one goal by Megan Frye.

The second half saw the Comets extend their lead on a beautiful goal off a corner kick by Courtney Hackney on an assist from Jae Atkinson. The final goal of the evening was scored by Liz Finley off an excellent feed from freshmen forward Jami Pfeiffer.

9/19 TURPIN won 2-0 5-0 3-0

Saturday evening’s match up against Turpin (4-1-2) was to provide Mason with its biggest challenge of the season since the opening night match against defending State Champions St. Ursula Academy. Mason won that match 1-0 ending the 39 game St. Ursula undefeated streak.

The game began with Mason applying some offensive pressure gaining several corner kick opportunities in the opening 10 minutes of play. Three of those corner kicks found the head of junior Annie Beard as she went high above the mixer to deflect them towards the goal. On the fourth corner kick opportunity, Jae Atkinson bent a left footed in swinger towards the near post where senior Megan Frye redirected the ball with a glancing header into the back side net as Mason took an early 1-0 lead.

However, Turpin regained their composure and put together a solid first half as they connected and strung together many passes in the midfield area. However, they were to be disappointed late in the first half when Mason scored with 13 seconds remaining to push the margin to 2-0. Senior Kristin Leist picked up a ball at the top of the box and went to goal facing several Turpin defenders. Having the ball deflect off and around the Turpin goalie, Leist followed the Turpin defender into the goal where the Turpin defender left it exposed to a follow up attempt and goal by Kristin.

The second half saw a more aggressive Mason team begin to assert themselves in the midfield area. Midfielders Courtney Hoenicke and sophomore Courtney Hackney patrolled and controlled the pace in the middle while solid play out of the air by defenders Annie Beard and Heather Jung helped solidify the victory. Second half goal keeping by Kimmy Connor recording six saves and Tina Mathur’s first half efforts provided Mason with its third shutout of the season.

The Comets record now stands at 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the GMC. The lady Comets go on the road this week to visit GMC foes Middletown and Fairfield.

Shortly after that, freshmen Sami Rutowski found Megan Frye with a cross for a goal and 3 to 0 lead. The Comets surrendered a goal with about 8 minutes left on a really nice play from Middletown.
9/26 MILFORD won 3-0 7-0 4-0

The game started slow for the Comets, with Milford dictating most of the play in the first half. The Comets defense led by seniors Heather Jung and Stephanie Gort kept the shutout in tact for the first 40 minutes and the score at half was 0 to 0.

In the second half Mason found their offensive rhythm. Maddie Junge scored a goal from 30 yards out to give the Comets a 1 to 0 lead. Immediately after that, Liz Finley found freshmen Sami Rutowski for another Comet goal and a 2 to 0 lead. The final goal was scored off a corner kisk from Jae Atkinson to Annie Beard.
