4/11 Lasalle lost 9-1 11-2 8-0  

Mason Baseball fell in a non-conference affair to Lasalle on Thursday, by a score of 9-1.

After winning two tough league games earlier in the week, Mason came out flat today in every phase of the game (pitching, offense, defense) and it cost them dearly as they suffered a convincing 9-1 defeat to the visiting LaSalleLancers out of the GCL Conference.  Four Comets pitchers combined to surrender nine walks on the day.  The defense committed three errors.  And, the offense generated only four base hits.  All combined, the team performance was simply not good enough to compete with a solid LaSalleball club.

The Comets (11-2, 8-0) will travel to GMC foe Lakota East TONIGHT in a battle of conference undefeateds.

4/12 @ Lakota East won 11-9 12-2 9-0  

Mason Baseball produces a signature 11-9 victory on Friday at Lakota East in a battle of the GMC powerhouses. The win was one of the more agonizing then thrilling games in recent Mason Baseball history. The Comets tailed 9-2 in the fifth inning before storming back to win the game in extra innings.  Both teams entered the game tied in the GMC Conference with a perfect 8-0 record, so Mason grabbed a one game lead heading in to Monday's re-match at Mason.


Early on in the game, five defensive errors by the Comets did not provide much support for Mason starter A.J. Kraus, who turned things over to Nick Niehoff in the third inning.  Niehoff turned in a gutsy performance out of the bullpen, keeping Mason in the ballgame through five innings of play.  Evan Kemp (4-1) took over in the sixth, and completely stymied the Thunderhawks as the Comets offense finally came alive.  Kemp picked up his fourth win of the season, allowing no hits and no runs over his three innings of work while striking out seven.


On offense, several Comets contributed to the comeback win.  Cole Hartingcontinued his solid season - belting both a home run and triple in the game.  But, today was truly a total team effort as Coach Bly presented the game ball to the entire team, in appreciation for the investment every player on the roster made in helping the team grind out the win.


Mason (12-2 overall, 9-0 GMC) hosts Lakota East (9-2 overall, 8-1 GMC) at 5:00 on Monday, April 15th in what should be another dogfight for the top spot in the conference.
4/15 Lakota East lost 7-4 12-3 9-1  
Mason falls to the Hawks on Monday. Leading 4-2 heading in to the top of the 7th inning at home, Mason surrendered five runs in the top of the 7th and lost to Lakota East by a final score of 7-4.  The Comets and Thunderhawks split their two game GMCseries for the second season in a row, and both teams head in to the final eight games of league play tied with identical 9-1 GMC records.  Mason dropped to 12-3 overall.

The Comets overcame some early adversity in this one as starting pitcher Dade Hensley had to leave the game due to injury after throwing just eight pitches.  Evan Kemp, after his impressive performance in relief last Friday, took the ball again and gave Mason a heroic effort - leaving the game after six innings of work with a 4-2 lead.  Kemp is now tied for the GMC lead in wins (4) and strikeouts (46).  

After an off day on Tuesday, Mason hosts Hamilton (5-5 in the GMC) on Wednesday, April 17th for the first of their two game series vs. the Big Blue.  Game time is 5:00 PM.
4/17 Hamilton won 8-4 13-3 10-1  
Mason bounced back from the tough late inning loss on Monday with an 8-4 conference win over visiting Hamilton.  With the win, the Comets kept pace with Lakota East, who also won today.  Both teams sit atop the GMC with a record of 10-1.

A.J.  Kraus moved to 3-0 with the win today, pitching 6 2/3 innings.  He allowed four earned runs and struck out seven.  Collin Brown entered in relief with one out in the seventh to nail down the final two outs of the game.  The big blow of the game offensively for Mason was a 2-run home run from senior Jack Buckley, his first career home run.  Other leaders on offense for Mason included:

Jack Buckley:  home run, SAC Fly, 3 RBI's
Liam McFadden-Ackman:  3 for 3, double, RBI
Cole Harting:  2 for 3, RBI
Jaxon Orlando:  2 for 3, RBI

Mason drew the late game on Monday at Marge Schott Stadium on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.  It was a couple of UCBearcat baseball commits who stole the show on their future home field as Mason defeated Fairfield 3-1.

Evan Kemp moved his season record to 5-1 with a complete game no-hitter.  Kemp allowed no earned runs, walked six, and struck out fourteen.  For his efforts, Evan was named the MVP of the game by the staff at the Cincinnati Reds Futures Showcase, who sponsored tonight's game.

With the game tied 1-1 in the seventh, Liam McFadden-Ackman led off the inning with a sharp single up the middle.  Two outs later, Cole Harting launched his GMC-leading sixth home run of the season - a two-run towering shot to left center field that traveled well over 400 feet and gave the Comets the cushion they needed.  Joe Powell added two hits for Mason tonight as well.

4/29 @ Lakota West won 6-1 19-3 15-1  
On Monday and for the second game in a row, the Comets relied on some late inning offensive heroics as they defeated Lakota West on the road 6-1 to move to 15-1 in the GMC (19-3 overall).

Trailing 1-0 in the top of the sixth inning, J.P. Sponseller lined a two-run homer to deep left center field to give Mason a 2-1 lead.  That hit seemed to settle and lock in the Comets offense, as Mason went on to score a total of three runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh.  A.J. Kraus was solid as the starter on the mound for Mason today, pitching four and 1/3 innings of one run baseball with two strikeouts.  Evan Kemp (7-1) came on in relief with one out in the 5th, and closed the door on the Firebirds offense the rest of the way.  Kemp also struck out two.  Leaders on offense for Mason included:

3/23 Kings Mills Relay 1st place


On Saturday, March 23rd the Mason Boys Track and Field Team opened their season at the Kings Mills Kings Relay meet did quite well. The Comets took home the team trophy and did so in strong fashion.  The Comets swept the sprint races, and split the distance races.  They also had some surprising showings in the field events.  

Highlights below:
Akari Porter was dominant in the 4x400, 4x200 and SMR relays.  With great splits, he opened these races up.  
Braedon Killion was also great in the 4x800 and 4x1600 distance relays.  

Cage Tatman did well, winning the pole vault, and Josh Wright and Jaymon Penn tore up their relays as well.  We got a pleasant surprises from newcomer Ben Lampe in the High Jump and Nick French looked strong as well.  The distance guys did great with Jack Troy and Brendan Pitcher holding their own, along with Alex DeRoussel in his respective races. 

Overall, it was a strong day with lots of great efforts and a nice starting point for the rest of the season.   

4/4 Moeller Invite    
4/5 Clash of the Titans @ Sycamore 1st This year the annual Clash of the Titans occurred this past Friday night at Sycamore high school.

The Comet Boys Track team did quite well winning the annual event over some top area talent in the GMC and GOC, making it a very nice start to the season.

The team scored some in the field with Cage Tatman having a great night in the pole vault.  After that, the boys of the 4x1 (Penn, Wright, Porter, French) did great and won in commanding fashion.  Akari Porter won the 200 with a blazing time!!  We had great production out of the distance runners as well.   

The boys won the 4x800 and Braedon Killion placed a strong second in the 1600, as did Jack Troy in the 800 and Isaiah Kelly in the 3200.  At the end of the night the 4x4 squad capped off a great event with a resounding victory. 

Next up for the boys team is the Waynesville Invite and Centerville Relays on Friday, April 12th

4/12 Waynesville Invite    
4/12 Centerville Relays 1st

The Boys of the Mason track and field team had a great night at the Centerville Elk relays this past Friday night.  The Comets boys came away with another first place finish. The team was in great form and came together for a true whole team effort. 

The boys of the 4x 200 won their race with the second fastest time in the state, as did the men of the 4x 400.   Both of these relays included Akari Porter, who is running at another level. The high jumpers did well, placing third with Keegan Mullins leading the way.  The hurdle crew is coming along nicely with Nick French running personal bests each week, looking to challenge for a state berth. 

After a few slip-ups by the dominant Wayne team, the Comets were somehow able to pull out a narrow team victory at the end of the night.  It was quite a pleasant surprise and a fun evening.  On top of the Centerville victory, our B team secured the win at the Waynesville meet as well.

This Friday and Saturday, Mason Track and Field will travel to Louisville for the prestigious Eastern Relays. 

4/17 Elder Skyline Invite    
4/19-4/20 Eastern Relays, Louisville, KY  

This past weekend Mason boys track and field had the epic meet in Louisville, the Eastern Relays.  Unfortunately, it rained cats and dogs, was 38 degrees, with 20+ mph winds. 

In the best interest of our athletes, Mason pulled 90% of their runners for fear of injury.  The Comets did run some distance runners and got a few races in Friday night.  Those that raced, did well, and actually had a few good times. 

Alex DeRousell had a great time in the Distance medley relay that placed 2nd overall, and the long jump went on with Josh Schimpf doing well having a season best jump.  The 4x800 guys did well and placed 4th with Rajan Singh having a great split during his leg of the race. 

Overall, the men represented themselves well, with a few good performances and no injuries.  It was a shame we could not race as hoped, but the team will now reload for the Wayne Invitational this Thursday and Friday. 

4/25 Little Miami Invite  


4/25-4/26 Wayne Warrior Invite  

This weekend the Mason Boys Track and Field Team traveled north for the annual Wayne Invitational.  This is arguably the biggest, most high powered meet in Ohio.  Forty-eight teams scored, and several more were entered that did not.  With all of that in place, the Comets did quite well,placing 3rd overall, just a few points out of 2nd. 

Relays led the way this weekend, with top 3 finishes from the 4x800, 4x200, 4x400 and 4x100 relays.  The individuals that stood out had to be Brendan Pitcher in the 800, Isaiah Kelly in the 3200 (3rd) Akari Porter in the 400 (3rd) and Josh Wright in the 200. 

Nick French also had a strong weekend as did Chris Zhang in the triple jump.  Many other athletes had great times, great efforts and did well.  It was encouraging to see how the team stacked up in such a loaded field, and it buoyed their confidence moving forward. 

The team will forward now to another night of great competition at the Mason Invitational this coming Friday night at Atrium Stadium. Track and Field Seniors will be honored and recognized on this special evening.

4/30 Kings Invite  

The Mason Comets ran a split squad of throwers and jumpers and runners at the Kings Invite last night.  The team was led by a few strong individuals who were tasked with running one event well.  Akari Porter won the 400 dash, Jaymon Penn was second in the 200 dash and Cage Tatman, Josh Schimpf and Abhishek Jakkula all placed well in their events. 

The team "nickled and dimed" in the relays, distance and field events to come up with enough points for 4th place, but kept most of their top runners at home to workout and rest. 

It was a great night, and strong showing by some young athletes who will be our top competitors next year.  

5/3 Mason Invite (senior night)

Mason Girls Lacrosse headed to sunny and warm Alpharetta, GA to kick off their 2019 season on Friday, March 29th. Mason girls played well but fell 15-13.

Alpharetta HS, a consistent top 10 school in the state, came out fast to net three goals. The Comets settled down and put home three of their own from Ellie Lefton, Cate Millard and Julia Block. All knotted up, now we have a game! After a long stretch of back and forth scoreless play Alpharetta pops in three. Relentless in the pursuit, Mason dings their three with a laser shot from Kate Cooper and a pair from Julia. This second goal marked a milestone for Julia Block who tallied her 100th career goal. 

Mason takes the lead on a Cate to Ellie feed but can't hold off the Raiders who even it up again. With one minute remaining Megan Carroll on a free position slides a nice little pass to Julia who pops it in for the 8-7 halftime lead behind 11 solid saves for Sara Grove in the cage.

Same action right out of the gate in the second half. Raiders tie it up, then Mary Ann Colangelo finds the net. Comet defense holds strong behind Megan Elko, Madisen Bangs, Brighton Ecoffey, Amanda Well and Sophomore Tess Krugh. Sammy Connors lights it up for the 11-9 lead but Raider nation isn't done and come back to within one. it's back and forth with two from Cate and knotted at 13 with 5 minutes to play. Mason again with solid defense battle the Raiders who work a patient offense get squeaker to hit the back of the net. On the ensuing draw an unfortunate bounce leads to an Alpharetta fast break putting them up by two. Comets try but can't gain draw possession and Alpharetta drops into a 3 minute stall to close it out. A tough fought game on both sides, Mason Girls showed relentless spirit and GRIT to start the season.

Lilly Burke found the net followed by a sweet Ellie Lefton to Megan Carroll feed and shot combo. Cate danced and put one home, followed by Ellie to Megan again before the Titans could get one on the board. A two combination from Sydney Minick to Mary Ann Colangelo got it 7-1. Cate tapped another, Mary Ann fed Zoe Krugh then Zoe split the pipes for her second.

Sara magnificent in the goal and outstanding defense from Megan Elko, Amanda Wells, Brighton Ecoffey, Madisen Bangs, Tess Krugh, Riley Brannock and Bri Cobb.

Second half starts right were we left off. Cate to Julia. The Titans found a seam and netted a couple before Julia reciprocated a pair of her own. Finishing out Sammy had a nice dish to Cate to get it to 19-5. Erika Eller stepped in for Sara who finished the day 8 saves.

On the rare occasion a shot got through Sara Grove stepped up big to preserve the first half NO-NO. 


The 2nd half was much of the same. Relentless pressure, draw circle possession and winning the 50/50 ground balls gave Mason a huge advantage. Shooting the white in the second half was Lilly Burke for two off some sweet feeds from Megan Carroll. Ellie Lefton jumped into the fray with her own then it was Megan Elko with a crushing defensive play and caused turnover bringing it back the other way and Julia nets a free position. Off the draw middies, Bianca Soper and Sophie Neuhaus controlled the ground balls keeping possession in our favor. Quickly it was Lauren Stone again followed by Sammy Connors, Sydney Minick and Mary Ann for a 21-0 lead. West looking to erase that goose egg, mounts a last ditch effort with solid resolve and is able to capitalize on a free position late in the game with Mason Comets winning 21-1.

Girls lacrosse dropped a tough non-conference game at Loveland last Thursday night 8-13. Behind excellent defensive play, the Comets matched the Tigers with a flurry of back and forth goals.

Girls Lacrosse headed to Braves country Tuesday evening for a non-conference match. Mason gunning for a bounce-back win took the game 19-9. Less than a minute in Cate Millard started the show with her first. Indian Hill grabs the ensuing draw and gets their first. Mason appearing to be shocked by the event, rattles off 8 straight goals supported by stellar defense from Megan Elko, Madisen Bangs, Amanda Wells, and Brighton Ecoffey and the superior goaltending of Sara Grove. The 8-goal game-changing barrage was led by Megan Carroll with 3, Julia Block for two, Cate for another pair and Sydney Minick tacking in one before IH could muster up a good shot. Mason pressure caused a number of turnovers and picked up ground balls taking a 13-3 lead into halftime.

4/25 @ Sycamore lost 16-11 7-4 3-2
Mason Girls Lacrosse lost a tough, physical game against GMC rival Sycamore Aves, 11-16. Under threatening skies your Comets came out hard with two quick goals from Cate Millard and Sydney Minick before the Aves got one on the board. Turning right around Cate got her second to stretch a lead 3-1.Although the threatening skies were holding off, the play on the field was getting aggressive leading to hawkish sideline antics that would draw yellow cards in most other cases. The typical disruption and distraction took a toll and allowed Sycamore to rattle off 7 unanswered goals. Leave it to a couple of Freshmen, Sydney Minick to Lauren Stone, to re-calibrate the Comets attack. Ellie Lefton feeds Cate for her third followed by Julia Block getting two free positions between a couple from the Aves. At halftime your Lady Laxers find themselves down by six. 

Comets come out in the 2nd half with a barrage of shots and locked down defense. Goals from Julia, Sydney and two from Lauren Stone claw us back to a 3 goal deficit. Comets can't gain possession on the ensuing draw and the foes drop into an abhorrent stall with whispers from the crowd wondering why high school lacrosse doesn't have a shot clock. Mason stretching out and consuming resources is able to steal the ball and covert on a nice transition culminating with a feed from Cate to Mary Ann Colangelo. Although a huge effort to the final buzzer, your Comets succumb the energy draining stall losing what turns out to be the GMC title match, 11-16. A tough game by all accounts but one that builds character, makes us better and stronger, we live to play another day and anticipate a rematch in the regional tournament.

This past Saturday, Mason Girls Lacrosse won its 12th game of the season against a tough Olentangy team, 13-12. The action packed affair culminated by your Comets coming back from a 3 goal deficit with 8 minutes to win the match.


Solid team defense from Megan Elko, Madisen Bangs, Brighton Ecoffey, Amanda Wells, Tess Krugh and Riley Brannock backed up by superb goaltending from Sara Grove, kept the heat on the Braves all game long. When it came down to crunch time, it was the impact plays in the last 8 minutes that brought momentum to the Comets side. 

Offensively through 42 minutes of play Mason girls shot the white 9 times with goals from Kate Cooper, Sydney Minick, Julia Block with two and Cate Millard getting a fistful but your Comets still found themselves down by three. 


With 8 minutes remaining Lauren Statzer grabbed the ensuing draw, drove it down and dishes it off to Lauren Stone who hammered it home. Next two draws it was Sophie Neuhaus stepping up big with perfect directing of the ball to Sydney. On the first Syd spots Julia and right back for a nice give and go, The second Neuhaus herself gets the ball back, draws a free position and nets her goal to tie up the game at 12 with 2 minutes to go. 


The Braves get the next draw, work it down, but Mason defense holds firm, then it is Sara Grove who steps up with a HUGE save at point blank and calmly makes the clear down field. 90 seconds to go Olentangy is pressuring, Mason loses the ball and on transition Riley Brannock darts out of no where to intercept one of their forward passes, then pushes it up-field for the offense to take over. Methodically the Comets control the ball when it's Ellie Lefton, GMC assist leader, finding Cate Millard in the middle who gets it in the cage for a 13-12 lead with 1:36 to go. Braves get the draw and once again Mason defense stands like a barricade, Olentangy manages to get off a shot and again Sara is there.

The Mason Girls Lacrosse Team takes down Loveland, 15-13 on Monday, advancing to the region finals.
