Dewine Invite @ Cedarville (boys only)

Loveland Invite


After a week's delay, the Mason Boys Cross Country season got off to a great start on Saturday. Proving their #2 state ranking is no fluke, the Comets dominated two different varsity meets.

The top varsity team won the Loveland Invitational taking down the host Tigers 36-50, as well as 16 other teams. The Comets' depth was on display as nine runners broke 16:40 on the Home of the Brave Park course. The Green and White was led by Senior Aiden Markich who finished 4th followed by Isaac Schachleiter in 6th, Jerry Xu in 7th, James Mroczka in 9th and Keith Neuburger in 10th.  Rounding out the top ten Comets were Max Liao, Brady Messer, Aiden Markich and Jacob Messer.

Meanwhile, the other varsity squad took on Thomas Worthington High School at the Dual at DeWine's. This dual meet was held on the farm of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. The governor was in attendance and spent time with our Comets. What a great opportunity for our kids! The Comets also lit up the course taking down TWHS 24-33. Junior Braedon Fedders garnered individual honors with Sophomore Noah Kelly hot on his tail. Brendan Roe, Joseph Schuessler and Patrick Theisen were the next Comet scorers. Displacers in the 6th and 7th man slots were Grady Wilson and Austin Vetter.

9/11 Mason Invite 1st  

This past Saturday, the Mason Comets Boys CC team won the 47th Annual Mason Cross Country Invitational sponsored by Buckeye Running Company in fine fashion. The Comets invited top competition from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, sending them all home with something less than first place.

Running a smart early race with a blistering finish, Senior Aiden Amshoff led the way for the Comets with a 5th place finish overall. Aiden was followed closely by teammates Isaac Schachleiter, Alex Deroussel and Jerry Xu in 7th, 8th and 12th respectively. 

A gap had formed between the Comets' fourth and fifth runners only to be ably filled by a late run by Max Liao finishing in 19th place. The two displacers for Mason were Brady Messer in 23rd and Keith Neuburger in 24th.

The Comets will next travel with a limited squad to the Cedarville Friendship Invitational next weekend. 
9/18 Cedarville Invite (Boys only) 1st  

The Mason boys cross country team journeyed north to the Friendship Invitational at Cedarville University on Saturday. Running on their fantastic, dedicated course, the Comets came home with a one-point victory against 12 other teams. The Comets held out their top 12 runners for training purposes. Still, the next level stepped up, showed their depth, and pulled out the victory by one over Columbus Grove and the rest of the field.

Sophomore Noah Kelly led the Comets with a spectacular 7th place finish. Then the Comet pack came roaring in.  Senior Patrick Theisen showed great leadership in bringing the pack along as he finished 11th. Then came Grady Wilson in 12th, Brendan Roe in 14th, Charlie Cooper in 15th.

That's five scorers, but Mason's sixth man Alex Follmer sealed the deal in 16th place as he added points to Columbus Grove's score finishing ahead of their 4th and 5th guy. Seventh man was Joseph Schuessler who finished a fine 21st.  Overall, a great day for the second tier of the Comets.

Next Saturday, Mason will venture to the prestigious Culver Invitational while others will go to the Fairmont Invitational.
9/25 Culver Invite 1st  

The Mason Boys Cross Country team journeyed to the Culver Academies in Indiana for the 12th time. Only this time it was different as the varsity championship trophy came home with the Comets.

Running on the spectacular Culver course on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee, the Comets took the early lead and never looked back, scoring an astounding 24-56 victory over second place Lyons Twp. (IL). The rest of the field was far behind.

Isaac Schachleiter continued his great story by taking individual honors. Isaac moved hard at the halfway point and no one in the field had an answer. Isaac is only 11 months removed from a disastrous full fracture of this femur. With 3 long screws in his leg, he has worked hard to gain this form and become a champion.

Schachleiter was followed by Aiden Amshoff who finished a remarkable third. Next in was Jerry Xu in fifth, Keith Neuburger stepped up to 6th place and Alex DeRoussel finished out the scoring in 9th.  Displacers were Max Liao in 11th and Colin Cambell in 13th. 


Next Saturday the Comets will send the top varsity to Centerville's Saturday Night Lights while the rest of the squad will take on Miamisburg in a dual meet at Kingswood Park.
9/25 Fairmont Invtie      
10/2 Centerville Saturday Night Invite 1st  

The Mason boys cross country team continued their winning ways, emerging victorious at the Centerville Saturday Night Lights meet. The Comets scored a low 56 points to take the victory.

Running late at night under the lights, Senior Captain Aiden Amshoff led the way with a stellar 4th place finish. He was followed by Isaac Schachleiter who finished a fine 9th place while Brady Messer, Alex DeRoussel and Braeden Fedders rounded out the scoring. Jerry Xu and Colin Campbell served as the sixth and seventh man displacers. 

Earlier in the day, the Comets Varsity B and JV teams took on Miamisburg in a dual meet at Kingswood Park. The Vikings' A varsity was too much for the Comets as they fell 24-33. Nevertheless, the Comets battled well with Sophomore Noah Kelly leading the way in 4th place. He was followed by Grady Wilson, and Jason Xu.  Will Buckalew and Joseph Schuessler rounded out the scoring for the Comets with Jacob Messer and Brendan Roe serving as displacers. 


Next up: The Comets will send a limited varsity team to the CHCA Invitational on Tuesday, October 5th at the VOA Park.

Boys CC 2021 GMC Champs!

The Mason Boys Cross Country team recaptured the GMC title on Saturday at VOA Park. The title is their programs 10th overall since entering the GMC in 2007.

Running on a cool, blustery day, the Comets not only claimed the title but did so in unprecedented fashion by sweeping the top five places for a perfect score of 15 points.

Senior Aiden Amshoff took individual honors with a personal record of 15:45 to be proclaimed GMC Runner of the Year. For the 6th time in his career, Head Coach Tom Rapp earned the GMC Coach of the Year.

The Comets raced as a tight pack and finished that way as well. Isaac Schachleiter garnered the runner-up position just five seconds behind Amshoff. He was closely followed by Jerry Xu and Keith Neuburger who both had breakthrough races.

Alex DeRoussel completed the sweep for the Comets nailing down the last scoring spot for the Comets with a blazing kick over the last 300 meters. Braeden Fedders and Brady Messer also ran fine races for the Comets as 6th and 7th runners respectively.

The Comets hope to continue their undefeated season at the District Championship at VOA Park next Saturday. It is the first round of qualifying for the state championship. Mason boys were District Runnerup last year and have won the event 12 times out of the last 13 seasons.

Teams will place themselves in either Race A or B, determined by seed placement. In Race A, 15 Teams, the top four (4) finishing teams will move to Regional Competition, and the top finishing team will be declared District Champion, and the next finishing team will be declared District Runner-up. Individuals that finish in the top sixteen (16) qualify to Regionals. In Race B, 15 Teams, the top four (4) finishing teams move on to Regional competition and the top finisher will be the District Champion while the next finisher will be District Runner-up. The top sixteen (16) individuals will move on to Regionals.

10/29 OHSAA Districts @ VOA 1st  


The Mason Comets Boys Cross Country team punched their ticket to Regionals by winning their 13th District title in 14 years at VOA Park on Saturday. The Comets continued their undefeated season even though they held out several of their top runners to help them prepare for the next round. The replacements performed admirably, taking the "next man up" approach seriously.

The course was running fast and Mason's first five runners all ran lifetime bests. Senior Aiden Amshoff and Junior Keith Neuburger pushed each other to the runner up and third place positions respectively. Aiden Markich and Max Liao finished 6th and 7th while Colin Campbell was the final scorer in 11th place. Braeden Fedders in 15th and Brady Messer in 17th were key 6th and 7th man displacers.  Mason won the race with a low score of 29 points to second place Lakota East's 122.

The OHSAA Regional Championships will be held Saturday, Oct. 30th at Hobart Arena in Troy, Ohio. The top 5 teams and top 20 individuals will qualify for the State Championships at Fortress Obetz and Memorial Park, Obetz, Ohio on Saturday, November 6th.  The Division 1 men's race will begin at 4:00 p.m.

OHSAA Regional @ Troy HS


The Mason Boys Cross Country team punched their ticket to the state championship for the 15th year in a row on Saturday, winning their program's 6th OHSAA Regional Championship.

The Comets emerged from the mist, fog, rain and mud with a Regional Title on Saturday at Troy. And they did it making a strong statement by taking down their rivals and #2 ranked St. Xavier 51-99.

Mason continued their undefeated season by using the same team-first approach they have used all season. Senior Aiden Amshoff led the way for the Comets using a ferocious kick to run down two St. Xavier athletes in the homestretch and finish 4th overall.

Alex DeRoussel turned in a stellar performance as second man in 9th place. He was followed closely by Keith Neuburger in 13th place and Aidan Markich in 18th place. Jerry Xu rounded out the scoring in 20th with Isaac Schachleiter right behind him in 21st. Max Liao served as an important displacer in 34th place.

The #1 ranked Comets will seek to win their third state cross country championship this Saturday at 4:00pm at Fortress Obetz near Columbus. 

In the past four years, the Comets have finished 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 10th at the state championships. The Mason boys CC team has won two state titles (2008,2014).



OHSAA State Championships @ Fortress Obetz

Fortress Obetz, Columbus, Ohio




Mason Boys Cross Country magical season ended this past Saturday at Frotress Obetz near Columbus, Ohio where only a few teams can only dream. The Comet boys brought home a Division 1 State Title, making their 6th trip to the state podium as either champions or runnerup and adding a third state championship to their boys storied program.

Mason sealed their undefeated season with a solid 38-point victory over runner up Dublin Coffman and the rest of the state of Ohio on a sunny, but chilly fall afternoon.

The Comets found another way to win a state title in 2021. Mason won in 2008 behind their ace runner Zach Wills. Their 2014 state championship was helped by top ten finisher Nick Grismer and a host of Comets scoring behind him.

This year the Comets were able to achieve a first place finish with strong team depth. It is a rare occasion when a school wins a state championship without a top ten finisher, but that was key for Mason this year.

The Comets had the best 4th, 5th and 6th runners in the race. That kind of depth turned out to be the difference making their statre title truly a team vicotry.

The Comets handled the pressure of being heavy favorites with calm and poise. They got out the gate well and established a lead by the mile mark which they never relinquished. Five of the six Mason finishers improved their position over the last mile as well. 

The Comets were led to the finish line by senior Alex DeRoussel in 19th place. He was followed closely by senior Aiden Amshoff in 20th. Both of these Comets earned All-Ohio honors with their finishes.

Next to finish for the Comets was junior Keith Neuburger in 41st place. Mason's 4th man was sophomore Jerry Xu in 44th. The all-important fifth man was sophomore Max Liao in 56th place. Sixth man and displacer was junior Aidan Markich in 62nd place. Junior Isaac Schachleiter struggled with an injury and did not finish. However, Isaac contributed to the Comets' success greatly throughout the season. 

In addtion to the team's athletic prowess, seven Comet runners earned Academic All-Ohio awards for their efforts on the course and in the classroom.

8/27 Moeller Primetime Invite    

The Girls CC team did not compete Saturday due to the cancellation of the season-opening meet at Moeller.

Next up, Mason Girls will compete on Saturday, Sept. 4th at the Loveland Invitational.  

9/4 Loveland Invite @ Home of the Brave 2nd  

The Mason Girls XC team was in action this weekend at the Loveland Invitational.  After a short bus ride to Home of Brave park, we arrived to find a beautiful course in pristine condition.  This particular course is very nice with great terrain and a fun vibe.  The meet had most of the local competition including the Loveland Tigers, who are now ranked #1 in Ohio.

Our team has been somewhat "dinged up" and we elected to sit a few key runners.  We were led by Sophomore Carlie Condit who logged her season best time of 19:14, after Carlie was freshman Addie Stehpens and then Kennedy Rader just behind her. 

For our 4th and 5th runners, we had some new faces on the varsity scene.  Ashley Robey was our 4th runner (her first time scoring in a varsity race) and she was followed by Ava Orlando, who ran the whole race with one shoe. 

The team took 2nd behind the Loveland squad, but held our own, all things considered.  We had some season best times, and many other personal bests.  Overall, it was a good showing and I think the Comets took a nice step forward. 

Next week we prepare for our home meet, and look forward to a big crowd to cheer us on. 

9/11 Mason Invite 2nd  

The Mason Invitational was a great event this past Saturday.  The meet boasted over 3300 athletes, and nearly 100 teams from 4 states.  There was a very strong field this year, including the #1 team in Ohio, and the #1 team in Kentucky.  The meet had nearly perfect weather and the course was in great shape, thanks to Tom Rapp and crew. 

The Mason girls lined up with nearly our full varsity for the first time this year, and ran pretty well.  We were led for most of the race by Macie Radciffe, until the last 100 meters when Addie Stphens passed her in the homestretch. 

After those two runners, Senior Kennedy Rader finished her last Mason Invite with Ava Orlando and Carlie Condit not far behind as our final 2 scoring runners. 

The team took 2nd overall behind a very strong DuPont Manual (KY) team.  The girls were able to beat Loveland, but it was not their normal full complement of runners.  The team ran well on this tough course, and even managed to have some season best times.  Overall, it was a step forward as this team continues to improve.  

Next up for the Mason Girls CC team is the Milford Invite on Saturday, Sept. 18th.

9/18 Milford Invite (Girls only) 2nd  

The Comets traveled to Milford this weekend for a great meet at the friendly confines of Valley View Park.  The day was hot, and the course was a bit mushy, not quite what we were hoping for.  That being said, we had some positives out there.  Lots of season best times, and lots of girls racing hard. 

For the Varsity Race, we actually tied through 5 runners, and then got nipped on the tie breaker. We were sad, but that is cross country, every runner counts!  Walnut Hills (winning team) had a nice day, and we were not quite on our game.  We will get them next time!

The Varsity Team was led by Carlie Condit, with a nice time on a hot day, followed by Addie Stephens and Macie Radcliffe.  After Macie, was Kennedy Rader close behind and then Advika Sumit (aka Vicky) who was our 5th and final scorer for the day. 

In the JV race, Naina Kaur lit it up and took the win, with Betsy Areddy, Avery Legault and Gracie Hicks not far behind.  We actually took the first 16 spots in the JV race, and looked very strong in the process. 

Next up, Mason girls race at the Culver Invitational on Saturday, 9/25. Mason will also send a squad of athletes to compete at the Fairmont Invite that same day.

9/25 Culver Invite 1st   This week the Girls XC team traveled to Culver Indiana with their varsity and Fairmont with their B team.  

The Varsity girls won their first race of the season, with just 54 points in this field of mostly Indiana teams, but a race that also included some teams from Illinois and Ohio.

  The team ran in a tight pack for over half the race, with Carlie Condit pulling away to lead the team for the day taking a top 5 spot in this race with over 200 runners. 

Macie Radcliffe continues to improve with a strong showing and a season best time.  Addie Stephens keeps rolling, and once again was our top Freshman, with a nice race. Next up was Advika Sumit and Kennedy Rader finished out our scoring runners. 

The team ran well, and continues to improve. 

For the B team at Fairmont, we actually put them in the small school race since it was our number 27-37 girls, and they were still able to pull off the win. (whoops) Our top finisher in this race was Mia Kinross who had a great day and a personal best time. 

Mason Girls CC will race at the Centerville Saturday Night Invite Oct. 2nd.
9/25 Fairmont Invtie      
10/2 Centerville Saturday Night Invite    

At the Centerville Saturday Night Lights Meet, the Mason Girls CC team ran very well.  This meet has the "blessing" of seeing the splits at the mile, 2 mile and finish, and the Comets looked strong.  There was a team from Michigan (Pioneer) that is ranked in the top 15 nationally, so everyone was shooting for second. 

The Mason Comets came through the first mile in 2nd place, looking strong.  We had some issues in the 2nd mile, but were hanging on by a thread to 2nd place, until the last mile when we slipped a few points and fell to a respectable third place finish overall in this epic meet with nearly 50 teams, and 100s of runners. 

The team was led by Carlie Condit who had her lifetime best of 18:44, and took 14th overall.  After her was Advika Sumit who ran strong with only 1 shoe, and next was Kennedy Rader who came about 150th place at the 1/2 mile point, to 47th overall in this huge field of talented runners.  After Kennedy was freshman Addie Stephens, and then our final scorer of the night was Sharanya Nair. 

Many girls had season best times, and many had lifetime bests on this fast course.  3rd was a strong showing overall, and the team continues to make progress. 

The girls also took 1st place in the Varsity A race (our next 10 runners) and the Varsity B race, our 21-30th runners.  It was a fun night and the girls did very well. 

In the "JV" races we had great efforts by Ashley Robey, Magdalena Frelek, Grace McKay and Gabbi Janis.  Overall, the meet was a great success, with a few things to continue to improve upon.   See team scores below:

1. Pioneer, Michigan - 45
2. Centerville  - 152
3. Mason -164
4. Beavercreek - 175
5. St. Ursula -198
6. Lebanon - 212

10/2 Kings Duals 1st    
10/16 GMC Championships @ VOA 1ST  

On Saturday at the GMC meet the Mason girls ran well and were able to notch their 10th overal GMC Title. The conditions were true Cross Country, blustery, crisp and somewhat raw.  The girls started off well, with 7 girls running nearly together, shoulder to shoulder, just like the coach likes. 

However, after about 1.5 miles, the team began to falter somewhat.  One team member had to step off the course, and one got somewhat sick and faded badly, but the team rallied. 

Advika Sumit stepped up, and was our number one runner for the first time this season!  Kennedy Rader was our 2nd runner, and had a season best time, and Addie Stephens continued to impress with a solid effort placing third overall for the Comets. 

After these three, we had some changes from past weeks;  Ashley Robey took her game up a notch and was our 4th runner, and Carlie Condit took the 5th and final scoring position.  The girls were able to notch the win with 30 points, and log our 10th win in the last 15 years of GMC competition. 

Six of our top seven girls were named 1st team all GMC and several of the runners were in the top 10 overall. All in all it was a great day, and our JV ranks had great performances as well, including Grace McKay who would have placed 5th for us overall in the varsity race with her time. 

The Comets now move on to districts where they face Oak Hills again, and Walnut Hills.  It should be a good battle, and the Comets are ready for the fight.  The District CC Championships will be held Saturday, October 23rd at Voice of America. Mason Girls CC are the defending District Champs and have won the title 12 out of the last 13 seasons.

Mason Girls CC Wins 13th District Title

Saturday at the district meet at VOA the Comet ladies of Mason ran very well.   We were so proud of their effort and how they competed as a team. Mason girls were able to win their 13th District Title in the last 14 years and send the team on to next weeks Regional Championship.

This week the team got the sad news that one of their top runners was out for the season, but the girls stepped up and filled the hole.  With a crew of six girls who had never been to the district meet or beyond, the team stepped to the line and took charge immediately.  

Carlie Condit got out well, and battled with a small pack of frontrunners.  

The rest of girls team ran nearly shoulder to shoulder for much of the race. 


Advika Sumit and Addie Stephens, led the charge.  Kennedy Rader brought her crew along nicely just behind them, and Grace McKay was Mason's 5th and final scorer. 

Ashley Robey and Naina Kaur turned in nice races as well, both with personal best times.

Overall it was a great day for the Comets, besting the next team by over 20 points. 

The OHSAA Regional Championships will be held Saturday, Oct. 30th at Hobart Arena in Troy, Ohio.

OHSAA Regional @ Troy HS


The Mason Girls Cross Country really stepped up Saturday at Regionals.  This year the Comets have had some tough blows.  Just a few weeks ago they lost their #2 girl to injury, and the girls were devastated, but somehow rallied and pulled off a big win at the District meet. 

Last Friday they learned that the team's top runner, Carlie Condit, was out sick and would not compete at the regional meet in Troy.  The girls somehow rallied once again and made Saturday at Regionals their finest hour. 

Considering the losses, the team traveled to Regionals at Troy this past Saturday knowing that there were some schools competing that would be very hard to beat, But, the Comets got out hard and formed the best pack they have had all year. 

Four girls ran shoulder to shoulder for nearly 5000 meters, and moved through the muddy conditions with purpose and focus.  Kennedy Rader shepherded her crew and led Addie Stephens, Advika Sumit and Grace McKay to an awesome finish well in front of their predicted placing. 

Ashley Robey ran tough and was just behind them, with Naina Kaur (also somewhat sick) and Betsy Areddy (alternate call up) doing their part as well, and stepping up to the challenge. 

As the results came in, it was clear Loveand (ranked #1) was the winner, but the Comets were just behind them in our closest finish to the Tigers this year. 

Beavercreek managed to sneak in just in front of us, but we were 3rd overall, Mason's best regional finish in a long time, and in front of Centerville, the defending state champions. 

It was a great day to be a Comet, and the coaching staff could not have been more elated and proud.  The team truly came together and achieved at a level no one predicted because of the recent setbacks. 

The Mason Comet Girls Cross Country team is thrilled to be moving on to the State Championship at Fortress Obetz this Saturday for the 17th time in the last 18 years. 

The Division 1 women’s race will be at 3:00 p.m Mason Girls Cross Coutnry will be seeking their third state title, previously winning back-to-back state championships in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.


11/6 OHSAA State Championships @ Fortress Obetz 8th place  

Mason Girls CC finished their season at Saturday's state championships at Fortress Obetz. The lades program was making their 17th appearance at State in the past 18 seasons. A remarkable accomplishment in itself!

The girl's XC team did well this year, far better than most expected.  Just a few weeks before the state meet, it was a long shot to even make it to the meet, and the meet in 8th place is a great achievement for the Comets.

The team was hoping to surprise at State, and run with the top teams, but were just off the mark. The course narrows very quickly and the team got squeezed badly in the opening meters, and fell behind early. 

There is live scoring at different split points on the course, and at the 450 meter mark the girls were in 13th place, and back deep into the pack of strong runners. 

At the mile spot tje Comets moved up to 8th place, and then to 6th briefly at the 2 mile point, but fell back in the last meters to 8th again. 

The team ran hard, and gave a great effort on a chilly but sunny day in Columbus.  Grace McKay continues to amaze, as she went from deep in our depth chart to our number 1 runner on the day. 

Kennedy Rader, the senior leader of this team, was Mason's #2 runner, moving up some 70+ spots from the 400 meter mark to the finish.  Addison Stephens did her best as a Freshman in this packed field of runners as the #3 Comet on the day, and Ashley Robey and Advika Sumit took the 4-5 spots for the Comets. 

Sadly Carlie Condit, the teams normal #1 runner was still ill and had a tough day at the office, while Naina Kaur held her own in first state meet appearance. 

Overall, the Comets did well, having a few best times, and holding on to our spots in the final kilometer better than in the past. 

The state meet is the best of the best in Ohio and the Mason coaching staff could not be more proud of the girl's efforts, and thrilled to be a part of it all.     

Congratulations to all the runners and coaches on a GREAT 2021 season!

Game Summary
813 Moeller tied 1-1 0-0-1  

Under new head coach Nate Baer, the Mason Comets opened their season Friday, August 13th against the Moeller Crusaders. The play on the field was as hot as the weather, as these two perennial HS juggernauts battled before an entusiastic, capacity crowd at the Mason Soccer stadium.

"We were thrilled to kick off the season last Friday Night in front of a high energetic army of Mason soccer supporters," said Coach Baer. "Opening the season to a top team in Cincinatti was important for us to understand where we are at as team in terms of ability to handle adversity, level of grit, ability to play under pressure and successfully play the brand of soccer we want to play against top teams. We are very proud of the boy's energy, fight and character to respond after going down 1-0 and it was clear in our analysis of that game that we controlled important moments of the game. Looking forward to seeing our growth and improvement over the coming weeks."

Tough defensive play from both teams led to a scoreless first half. Moeller got on the board in the 2nd half with a 30 foot shot into the upper left corner to grab a 1-0 lead. The Comets tied the game 1-1 on penalty kick by junior William Wettengal.

vs. Lasalle

@ West

won 3-2 OT 11-2-3 7-1-1

Mason Boys Soccer Advances to District Championship!

The Comet Boys took on Lasalle Tuesday night at West. The Lancer of the GCL plays one of the toughest schedules in the city and the night promised to be a big challenge for the Comets.


Lasalle plays Moeller and St. X twice each during the regular season. We knew they are an extremely hard working, high pressure, organized team with a strong core. We expected pressure with set pieces and dangerous long throws.

The emotion of the tournament game moved us away from the way we wanted to play from progressive, possession soccer to forcing transitional moments and too direct. Mason fell beind 2-0 in the first half.

At halftime - we discussed the type of soccer we have been playing this year that has supported our success and not to get away from it.

The Comets rose to the occasion. Leading the way back, Mason got goals from Kevin Ren (PK) then Will Wettengel (assisted by Dylan Santiago) to tie the game, midway thru the final half. Regulation time ended with both defenses holding tight to a 2-2 tie.

Early in overtime Erik Winterhhalter found the back of the net off an assist from Adam Enouen to send Mason to the District final.

"The boys were incredible in the second half showing so much grit, resilience, and character to fight back and ensure we get to play another round," said head coach Nate Baer. "So proud of this group! The district title has been one of our goals since March and we are excited to have earned the right to compete this weekend."

The Comet boys are the defending District Champs and will be seeking their program's 9th overall District Title.

Mason (11-2-3) will play #3 seeded Springboro (7-6-2) out of the Dayton Sectional on Saturday, 10/30 at Princeton HS, 7:00. Earlier this season the Comets and the Boros were scheduled to play but canceled due to weather issues. The winner of Saturday's contest will advance to the Sweet 16 Regional Semi-Final match on Wed. 11/3 vs. either Beavercreek or St. Xavier.


District Final

vs. Springboro

@ Princeton HS 7:00

won 1-0 12-2-3 7-1-1

Mason Boys Soccers Wins 9th District Championship!

Sweet 16 for the Comets!

The Comet Boys Soccer team earned their programs 9th overall Distirct Title on Saturday. Mason held off Springboro by a final score of 1-0. The Comets dominated possesion time in the contest but the game remained scoreless for the first 70 minutes. With 10 minutes remaining senior Gage Foster broke free and took a pass from senior Luis Rojo to punch the only tally in the game. Mason Junior, Zach Cochran notched his 101th shutout of the season for Mason.

Mason will play St. Xavier HS on Wednesday at Lakota East HS at 7:00 pm. The Bombers defeated Beavercreek on Saturday 4-3 (penalty kicks) to advance. Last season the Comets fell to Centerville in the Regional Semi-Final, 2-1 to Centerville.

Earlier this season St. Xaiver handed the Comets a 1-0 loss. Wednesday's winner will play either Centerville (Dayton #1 seed) or Anderson on Saturday for a Regional title and State Final Four berth, at a location TBA.


Regional Sem-Final

vs St. X

@ East

lost 2-1 13-3-3 7-1-1

Mason Boys Soccer season ended in the Regional Semi-Final at Lakota East last Wednesday night. The Comets fell to St. Xaiver in a tense postseason battle by a score 2-1.

The Bombers came out aggressively early, and their aggressiveness paid immediate dividends. A St. X player recovered a rebound off the crossbar and quickly struck back net for the opening goal, putting the Bombers ahead 1-0 in the fourth minute.

As the game ensued, Mason found its legs and amped the intensity against an aggressive Bomber defense. Though the Comets failed to score on a handful of shot attempts in the waning minutes of the first half, you could feel the pendulum of momentum swinging.

Just minutes out of the half, senior Levi Kelly took advantage after St. Xavier goalie batted away a shot attempt by a Mason Striker, which found its way to Kelly’s leg. Kelly punched in the game-tying goal, giving his Comets a fighting chance and setting the stage for a second-half nail-biter.

Both teams had a number of appetizing scoring opportunities in the second half, as they continued to absorb each other’s best shots. St. X was able to tack on the game-winning goal at the 77 minute mark off a Mason keeper deflection.

Suddenly facing the brink of elimination, Mason attempted to push the ball downfield, but failed to get many cracks at the goal. Their last best chance came as time expired, though the Comets failed to punch in a header on a corner kick as the clock read zeroes.

Both teams ended rather even, with the Comets (13-2-3) hoisting 18 shots to the Bombers’ 17.

The Comets say good bye to an outstanding senior class. Mason won their programs 4th consecutive GMC title in 2021 and 9th District Title. Congratulations to 1st yeaer head coach Nate Baer who received the GMC Coach of the Year honor.

Game Summary
8/21 St. Ursula won 2-1 1-0 0-0

The Mason Comets Varsity Women's Soccer Team opened its 2021 campaign with a 2-1 victory over the energetic St. Ursula Bulldogs at home on Saturday. It was pushing 90 degrees and the stands were full of fans who were clearly happy to be cheering on their team again after limited spectators were allowed last season.

The game was physical and fast from the whistle, testing the fitness of everyone on the field. Shannon Crogan opened the scoring 18 minutes into the game with a swift ground strike past the Bulldogs keeper. The Bulldogs didn't let up, but Tori Hopton and Jayna Searles were relentless in stopping attacks in the middle before they gained momentum. Thirty minutes in, the Comets threatened with a terrific cross by Searles to Crogan, but the shot went left. The stalwart defence of Carly Keuffer, Emilia Geren, Peyton Beach, and Emma Gecks -- and multiple terrific saves by goalkeeper Kylie Dahlgren -- kept the Bulldogs scoreless through the first half with the Comets up 1-0 at halftime.

Second half was more of the same back and forth.  13 Minutes into the second half, a kick from the back line by Carly Keuffer deposited the ball amid traffic near the goal, where Maddie Baird got her foot on it and slid it to the back of the net to make the score 2-0. St. Ursula managed to get a shot in about 14 minutes later, and seemed to give them new energy with multiple aggressive attacks. A few corners by St. Ursula thereated, but the Comets managed to get them out and hold the team to one goal.

Mason is the #2 ranked girls soccer team in the Enquirer's preseason poll. The Comets (1-0) will viist Loveland on Wedenesday, Aug. 25th.

8/25 @ Loveland tied 0-0 1-0-1 0-0
The first road game of the season for the varsity Mason Women's Soccer team ended in a 0-0 tie Wednesday evening against the always competitive Loveland Tigers at the Loveland turf. The game was delayed a half hour due to heat. 

It was a battle up and down the field the entire game, with both teams fighting for every ball. About 25 minutes into the first half, a long Loveland throw-in resulted in a loose ball just feet from the net, when midfielder Jayna Searles gained control a second before it went in.  A set piece by Loveland with 9 minutes left in the half resulted in another threat, but the Comets defense stopped it.

Just before halftime, the Comets mounted a quick attack that resulted in a stopped shot by Ella Madden with just one minute left before half.

Both teams came out strong in the second half, and a Loveland throw-in was met with a Loveland header that went just wide of the goal. A few minutes later, the Comets replied with a strong ground shot by Searles that was stopped by the Loveland keeper. Comets keeper Anna Knight saved another close one with 11 minutes left in the game when a Loveland throw-in resulted in a loose ball in traffic right in front of the goal. 

The Comets gained momentum with 10 minutes left, mounting several dangerous attacks. In one,  Maddie Baird took the ball up the side and sent in a cross to Shanon Crogan, but that attempt went wide. In another, defender Carly Keuffer got a  head on a Comet's corner kick, but that attempt went wide.

8/28 @ Strongsville lost 2-0 1-1-1 0-0
The Mason Comets women came away from two gritty contests this weekend in Strongsville with a loss to the defending state champions and a win against a perennially strong team. 

On Saturday, temperatures pushed 92 as the women battled the 2020 Div. 1 state champion Strongsville team end-to-end. Ten minutes into the game, Strongsville broke through Mason's defense and took a shot that was stopped by Mason goalie Kyleigh Dahlgren. The ball bounced back into traffic in the 18 and ended up on the foot of a Strongsville player. A Mason player inadvertently got her hand on the ball, giving Strongsville a penalty kick and the first goal of the day.

Mason's defense held strong against the Strongsville onslaught, with Jayne Davies making a save that looked like it might lead to another goal. Mason earned its first corner with 23 left in the half, but just missed converting. Shortly afterward, a sharp attack by Olivia Tull to Davies and up to Shannon Crogan ended with a shot that dribbled just left.

With 15 minutes left in the game, Strongsville took a shot that sailed just under the crossbar, making the score 2-0. Mason responded with a gritty offensive effort, including a close shot by Searles just above the crossbar and another on a cross by Rylee Curl into Crogan, who headed it just right of goal. The game ended in a 2-0 loss.
8/29 @ Hoban won 1-0 2-1-1 0-0
On Sunday, Mason rebounded to play Archbishop Hoban on the same grass field. Within minutes of the whistle, the Comets mounted several dangerous attacks that threatened goals. In one, Sofia Maine sent a ball to forward Elise Haller, who moved past a defender and slotted the ball to the back of the net. The half ended with a 1-0 score.

The Comets again came out strong after halftime. A cross by Curl to Haller resulted in a shot that hit the crossbar. Ten minutes later, forward Ella Madden shot a strong ball on the ground that just rolled left of goal. Another threat came with 13 minutes left in the game, when Maine crossed the ball into Crogan, who headed it just over the goal. Strongsville replied with an attack that resulted in a reaching save by Mason keeper Anneliese Knight. The game ended with a 1-0 score. 

Keeper Kylie Dahlgren had  4 saves and Anneliese Knight saved 3

Keeper Anneleise Knight with 1 save.

Overall 2-1-1

NEXT GAME: Thurs, Sept 2, 2021 (7:15pm) @ Middletown
9/2 @ Middletown won 5-0 3-1-1 1-0 The Mason Women's Varsity Soccer Team gave the Middletown goalkeeper a workout during their game on Thursday evening at Middletown, taking 24 shots on frame, resulting in a 5-0 road win.

It was a perfect evening on the pitch with clear skies and 70 degree temperatures. Shannon Crogan opened the attack just 8 minutes into the game, with a threatening shot just off goal.  For the rest of the half, various Comets created offensive opportunities. The score was still 0-0 with less than a minute left in the first half when Jayna Searles shot the ball into the box and Shannon Crogan headed it past the Middletown keeper. Seconds later, with an assist form Maddy Baird, Ella Madden shot a rocket from the left side of the 18 that hit the back of the net. The half ended 2-0 Comets.

Both teams came out strong in the second half, with Madden taking another strong shot 5 minutes in that was stopped by the keeper.  MIddletown didn't let up on defense even as the Comets kept the ball on their end for the majority of the game. At 67 minutes, a loose ball near the net resulted in an own goal by Middletown. Ten minutes later, a shot by defender Annalisa Brown was close but went right. Minutes later, Emilia Geren moved past a defender and got a ground shot into the net. Then, with less than five minutes to go in the game, Rylee Curl sent a ball to the box, where LIbby Sears took a hard shot into the goal. The game ended 5-0.

The Comets took a total of  43 shots, with 24 on target. Middletown took one shot that was saved by Keeper Anna Knight. 

The Comets are on the road again Sept. 9 @ Fairfield. 
9/9 @ Fairfield won 2-0 4-1-1 2-0

The Mason Women’s Varsity Soccer team won its second GMC contest 2-0 against the Fairfield Indians on Thursday in a game that looked even to begin but ended with the Comets dominating possession.

From the whistle, Fairfield worked to control as the Comets tried to find momentum in passing. Just 10 minutes in, Shannon Crogan rolled around a defender and took a sure and high shot over the keeper’s hands into the back of the net, giving the Comets a 1-0 lead that would stand most of the half.

The back line, and in particular Emilia Geren, was under pressure much of the game with a determined Fairfield forward, but she responded with fast and smart defending to keep attempts away from the net.

With just two seconds left in the half, a free kick by Maddie Baird from outside the 18 sailed just under the bar into the next, making the score 2-0.

The Comets opened the second half with possession on their mind. They kept the ball at their feet and worked it up the field again and again, creating several threatening attacks but no more goals.

Fairfield’s most dangerous attempt of the night was with 23 minutes left in the game with a shot that was just off frame.

The next matchup is tomorrow, Saturday 11th, at 7PM where the Comets (4-1-1) host Mount Notre Dame (6-0-0) at Mason High School. It will be a top ten state poll matchup with MND at #2 in the latest rankings and Msaon #9.

9/11 MND lost 4-0 4-2-1 2-0

The Mason Comets Women's Varsity Soccer team came into the Saturday night matchup against an undefeated Mount Notre Dame squad with high hopes, but left with a 4-0 loss. The Cougars are the #2 ranked team in the state polls.

The Comets came out quickly to match the Cougars energy, but just 5 minutes into the game MND scored on a shot from 25 yards out that sailed inside the near left post. Just four minutes later, the Cougars had a free kick from midfield that led to a successful goal shot from the top of the 18.  The Comets continued to work, diffusing multiple MND attacks for the next 30 minutes and earning one shot on goal that was stopped.

The second half was much of the same, with MND running through balls and interrupting many Comet passes. A turnover just after the whistle turned into an MND goal just 15 seconds into the second half, and MND scored again a few minutes later. The Comets responded with effort and energetic runs, including some solid shots on goal, but they weren't able to convert. The game ended 4-0.

Saturday night was the annual Top Soccer Program showcase at Mason. As always, it was a wonderful opportunity to recognize some very special, hardworking and energetic young people who love the game of soccer. Congratulations and thank you to all the athletes and volunteers that made this evening so special.

The Comets face GMC competitor Oak HIlls at home on Tuesday, Sept. 14

9/14 Oak Hills won 5-2-1, 5-2-1 3-0

The Mason Women’s Varsity Soccer team won its third GMC contest 3-0 against the Oak Hills Highlanders on Tuesday in a game that looked evenly matched in the first half but ended with the Comets controlling the field and putting points on the board.

From the whistle, the Comets and Highlanders both worked to gain control and to find momentum in the first half. Both teams mounted attacks but fell short of getting the ball in the net. Comets ended the half with 7 shots on target and 3 on frame but all saved by the Oak Hills keeper.

The second half opened with the Comets securing possession and mounting multiple attacks. Seven minutes into the half Elise Haller went 1-on-1 with the keeper inside th 18 making a quick step to the right as the keeper dove for the ball and then easily sent the ball into the goal. The next goal came 3 minutes later with Shannon Crogan receiving the ball at midfield, navigating through multiple defenders and then taking a solid shot just out of the keeper's reach.  The third goal of the night came from Maddy Baird two minutes later from outside and right of the 18. Taking a few steps to avoid a defender, Baird fired off a solid shot that came in high and tight leaving the keeping little chance of blocking. 

The next matchup is next Tuesday,  Sep 21th, at 7PM where the Comets (5-2-1, 3-0)) host Lakota West (0-2-3) at Mason High School.

9/21 Lakota West tied 0-0 5-2-2 3-0-1

The Mason Women Varsity Soccer team kept the ball on the offensive side much of the game v. Lakota West at home on Tuesday evening, but West’s overloaded defense kept the ball out of the net – leading to a 0-0 score that puts Mason in a tie with Lakota East for control of the GMC.

In total, Mason took 27 shots with 11 on target (all stopped by the keeper) vs. West’s two total shots with one on target that was saved by Mason Keeper Anneliese Knight. 

Mason had a few shots the first half, including one just over 17 minutes into the game on a corner, when defender Payton Massa got her head on the ball and directed it toward the net. It sailed just right of the top bar. The few times that West got in the attacking third the entire game, Mason’s defense quickly dispensed the threat. More than once, defender Ainsley Schaufele held off an oncoming West attacker and turned the ball back. 

Much of the second half was an all-out attack by Mason. Despite some trouble connecting passes, they quickly recovered, and the defense and midfield had little trouble getting the ball up the field. But West had five defenders, and the numbers managed to stop Mason from finishing on direct attacks. Shots by Emilia Geren, Elise Haller, Sofia Maine, Peyton Beach, Shannon Crogan, and a header on a corner by Carly Keuffer were all off net or stopped. 

Mason Goalkeepers Kyleigh Dahlgren and Knight kept clean sheets, with one stop for Knight.

Mason is up next at Lakota East (3-0-1 GMC) on Thursday in a must-win game for control of the GMC.

9/23 @ Lakota East tied 1-1 5-2-3 3-0-2

On Thursday night, a gritty and back-and-forth contest between the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer Team and the Lakota East Thunderbirds ended in a 1-1. The statemate keeps the hunt for the GMC still up for grabs between three schools: Mason, East and Sycamore (all 3-0-2).


The Comets started the game passing strong, fast, and on target to create opportunities at the goal. The first real threat came 7 minutes in, when a quick sequence from Elise Haller to Emilia Geren ended in a shot by Shannon Crogan that barely missed the net. 

East was the first to score with a ground shot from the right while under pressure from the Comets defense. 

Two more close Comets opportunities came just before halftime when the keeper made a save on a Haller shot into the top right of the bar, and a few minutes later a shot by Maddie Baird went just above the goal. The Comets equalizer came 10 minutes into the second half, when Crogan took on a defender and sailed a shot past the keeper into the net. 

Goalkeepers Kyleigh Dahlgren had one save and Annaleise Knight had 5. 


The Comets are up next on Saturday at Ursuline..

Ten minutes later, Jayna Searles made the score 2-0 going into halftime.

In the second half, Hamilton struck first with an outside shot just out of the keeper's reach. Taking the score to 2-1. 35 minutes into the second half, Rylee Curl chalked up a goal taking the score to 3-1. The Comets mounted several other attacks, which kept the Hamilton keeper busy all game. With 8 minutes left in the game, a strong ground ball from the right ended in a goal by Elise Haller, making it a 4-1 game, a score that stood until the end. 

Up next, Mason hosts Mercy McCauley at 2PM on Saturday, Oct 2 at Mason High School.
10/2 Mercy won 2-0 7-2-4 4-0-2

After a downpour in the first few minutes cleared, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer team defeated Mercy-McCauly 2-0 at home on Saturday.

The first half was a well balanced game with a lot of back and forth possession and only a few shots. The first goal came in 35 minutes into the half on a header by Elise Haller assisted by a header from Gabby Speas. The half finished Mason up 1-0. 

The second half Mercy McCaluey came out more aggressively but the Mason defense was able to hold. Mason's second goal came in the the last minute of the game by Rylee Curl. On a cross in front of the goal from Gabby Speas, Rylee nailed it to the back of the net.
Keepers Kyleigh Dahlgren and Ana Knight kept a clean sheet with 1 saves each.

In an important GMC battle on Tuesday evening, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer team came out on top with a 3-1 win over the Sycamore Aviators.

From the whistle the Comets came out strong and did not let up. They controlled the field much of the battle, with the stalwart Comets defense turning back every Aviator threat. With a little over 12 minutes left in the first half, Gabby Speas earned her third assist in two games when she took a ball up the side and passed it to an oncoming Olivia Tull, who shot it into the goal. 

A couple minutes later, the Aviators struck back to make the score 1-1. RIght before the half, a shot by Maddie Baird was deflected by the Aviators' keeper and ended at the feet of a striking Sofia Maine, who sent it into the goal. Halftime score was 2-1 Comets.

The second half was much of the same, with the Comets taking multiple stopped shots. Ten minutes into the half, Baird took the ball up the left and sent it into Rylee Curl for the Comets third goal. The score held.


Next up, Mason (8-2-4) will visit Princeton on Thursday.

10/7 @ PRinceton won 7-0 9-2-4 6-0-2
On a warm but cloudy fall evening on Thursday night, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer dominated the Princeton Vikings with a 7-0 win at Princeton.

The Comets started the first half fast and strong, controlling the ball, posing multiple threats and taking 9 shots including a penalty kick in the first 20 minutes. It was at the 30 minute mark when Elise Haller crossed to Gaby Speas who easily planted the ball in the back of the net taking the score to 1-0 and earning Speas her first goal of the season. Despite several more solid attacks, the score would hold at 1-0 for the remainder of the half.

The second half started in a big way with an immediate attack and a goal in the first 20 seconds by Maddy Baird with an assist from Rylee Curl. Taking the score to 2-0. Mason lept the pressure on with several more attacks and then the third goal coming from Rylee Curl at 56 minutes.

Over the next 10 minute Elise Haller was able to chalk up 2 goals with one coming off an assist from Maddy Baird.

Girls Soccer 2021 GMC Co-Champs!

Mason Women's Varsity closes out the regular season on Thursday night with a definitive 7-2 win over Colerain, to defend their GMC title and honor the program's senior class.


In a near perfect evening, the Mason Women's Varsity soccer team kicked off the night recognizing it's seniors. The 2021 seniors include Lexie Abel, Annalisa Brown, Shannon Crogan, Rylee Curl, Kyleigh Dahlgren, Emma Gecks, Emilia Geren, Elise Haller, Tori Hopton, Carly Keuffer, Sofia Maine, Payton Massa, Sara Morris, Jayna Searles, and Olivia Tull. 

The night ended as hoped, with the Comets 9th overall GMC title (7 outright & 2 shared). Mason and Lakota East will share the 2021 league championship with identical 7-0-2 records. The Comet girls program has won or shared the most GMC titles in the leagues modern ten-team format (since 1997). Fairfield holds the record for most GMC titles ( 11 outright & shared) since the GMC began recognizing a league champion in 1977.

At the kickoff, the Comets started the attack with the first shot on goal in the first minute, but no goal that time. The pace of the game was fast with several attacks and counter-attack by both sides. Seven minutes in, Colerain was the first on the board, giving them at 1-0 lead. Mason continued with their game and landed points on the board with a solid shot by Rylee Curl 16 minutes into the half and the  next goals coming from Shannon Crogan,  and Jayna Searles with a free kick that placed the ball just outside the reach of the Colerain goalkeeper. The 3-1 score would hold until halftime.


In the second half, the Comets kept up the same level of intensity with Rylee Curl getting her second goal 6 minutes in. This was quickly followed with a goal from Maddy Baird a minute later taking the score to 5-1. About 20 minutes in, Colerain was fouled in the box which led to  their second goal off of a penalty kick taking the score to 5-2. The Comet's next score came with Shannon Crogan's second goal of the night with about 10 minutes remaining in the game. Elise Haller closed out the scoring for the Comets, taking the score to 7-2. This would hold until the end of the game.

vs. Talawanda

@ home

won 6-0 11-3-4 7-0-2

In a solid and swift showing, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer team opened its post-season tournament on Thursday night with a 6-0 win over the Talawanda Braves. It was a perfect evening on the pitch at Mason High School for the last home game of the season.

Shannon Crogan opened the scoring quickly, with a right side shot past the keeper just 2 minutes into the game. The Comets held most of the possession through the half, with 3 more goals coming from Maddy Baird, Sofia Maine, and Tori Hopton. Comets ended the half with a 4-0 lead.

The second half was more of the same, with the Crogan and Baird adding 2 additional goals to the total. Mason's strong backline did not allow the Braves any shots on goal and held the 6-0 score.

Next in tournament action, the Comets face St. Ursula Bulldogs on Monday Oct 25th at 7PM. The match will be held at Kings High School. During regular season play, the Comoets defeated the Bulldogs 2-1.

vs. St. Ursula

@ Kings HS

won 2-1 12-3-4 7-0-2

Overcoming a 0-1 deficit in the first half, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer Team bested the St. Ursula bulldogs 2-1 on Monday night in the latest round of the post-season playoffs. Mason advances to the District Championship game.


Both teams played to win, aggressively fighting for every 50-50 ball and not giving up on plays. St. Ursula opened the scoring 18 minutes in when a ball was shot from the right and a player headed it into the goal. The rest of the half was an equal contest with the Mason backline containing attacks. 


Down by 1 at half, Mason went on the attack immediately in the second half. Just one minute in, Maddy Baird headed the ball over the St. Ursula back line and Shannon Crogan sprinted to send it past the keeper to even the score at 1-1.

Several minutes later, Knight kept the score equal by stretching to stop a threatening St. Ursula shot that was headed high and into the corner of the frame.

Twenty-eight minutes into the second half, Janya Searles sent a ball up the right line to Elise Haller, who collected and passed it to an oncoming Crogan. Crogan took a step to the right and sent it just over the keeper's finger tips to give Mason a 2-1 final.


Anneleise Knight had 6 saves for the night.


Mason girl's are the defending District Champs and will be seeking their program's 9th overall district title this Thursday. The Comets will be playing Seton HS (11-3-3) at 7:00 at Hamilton. The winner advances to next Tuesdays Sweet 16 Regional semi-final.



vs. Seton

@ Hamilton 7:00


won 3-2 OT 13-3-4 7-0-2

District Champions--Sweet 16 for Mason Girls Soccer!

Mason Girls Soccer hoisted their 9th Southwest District Championship trophy on a wet and rainy Thursday night at Hamilton. The Comets outlasted Seton 3-2 in double overtime to advance to the OHSAA Sweet Sixteen. 

In what could be characterized as a game of Rock 'em, Sock 'em Robots, the matchup between the Comets and the Saints was anything but slow-paced and resulted in 23 fouls, 2 yellow cards to the players, and 2 yellow cards to the Seton coach resulting in a red card and an ejection from the game.

At the opening whistle, both teams started out fast and strong. The Saint's strategy was to play a shallow backline and catch the Comets offside which was effective in the first half and shutting down multiple Mason breakaways. The Comets on the other hand focused on possession and using the entire field to advance the ball. The first half ended 0-0 with Mason taking 4 shots and 1 corner kick to Seton's 2 shots and 3 corner kicks. 

The second half opened with Seton scoring in the first 2 minutes. 7 minutes later the Comets mounted a strong attack with Carly Kueffer to Jayna Seales to Maddy Baird who scored and took the score to 1-1. The game continued for the next 30 minutes with multiple attacks on both sides until the Saints picked up another goal and took a 2-1 lead. 3 minutes later the Comets responded with Rylee Curl scoring off an assist from Baird. The 2-2 score would hold until the end of regulation play and lead to overtime play.

Overtime consisted of 2 fifteen-minute halves but also playing for the golden goal... the first score wins the game. Both the Saints and Comets fought for an opportunity in the first OT half, but neither was successful, the score holding at 2-2. The second OT half continued the strong effort on both sides. In the 104th minute of the game, Elise Haller took a solid shot from the far-left side hitting the crossbar and dropping to Rylee Curls feet. Seton fouled Rylee Curl in the box leading to Carly Kueffer taking the Penalty Kick. Kueffer placed the ball low and to the left, just out of reach of the Saints diving goalkeeper. In double overtime, the Comets win 3-2 and advance to the regional semi-final.

Mason will advance to the Regional Semi-Final on Tuesday, Nov. 2nd to play Centerville (Dayton #1 seed) who knocked off Milford 2-1 in OT on Thursday. The Comets fell to the Elks last year in the same game by a score of 2-1. It will be a 7:00 pm start at a Bellbrook HS, 7:00. The winner will play either Beavercreek or Mt. Notre Dame in the Regional Final on Saturday, Nov. 6th for a Regional Title and State Final Four berth.

This will be the Comets 4th Sweet 16 appearance in the past 5 seasons. Mason is aiming at a run toward its fourth state Final Four appearance. The Comets captured regional crowns three consecutive years from 2012-14 and was state runner-up twice in that span. 



vs. Centerville

Bellbrook HS 7:00

lost 5-4 PK's 13-3-4 7-0-2

The Mason Girls Soccer season ended last night in a heart-wrenching Regional Semi-Final loss to Centerville at Bellbrook HS. The Elks were able to outscore the Comets 5-4 in penalty kicks to advance to the Regional Final. This marks the 2nd year in a row that Mason fell to Centerville in the same game.

For the second consecutive game for both teams, the game required an overtime period. On this night, they played two extra periods with both defenses holding the other down.

Mason's girls battled all night long and kept the pressure on Centerville much of the night. However, after 80 minutes of play, neither team had scored. Even with two more 15-minute overtimes, no balls reached the back of the net. 

The game came down to penalty kicks with each squad given five tries. Through four, each team scored. But, on Mason's fifth, Centerville's goalkeeper was able to stop the Comets last shot and then win the match on their final try.

Mason finishes 13-3-4 with their first loss since paying MND on Sept. 11. The 2021 season will be a memorable one for the Comet seniors: Lexie Abel, Annalisa Brown, Shannon Crogan, Rylee Curl, Kyleigh Dahlgren, Emma Gecks, Emilia Geren, Elise Haller, Tori Hopton, Carly Keuffer, Sofia Maine, Payton Massa, Sara Morris, Jayna Searles, and Olivia Tull. 

Mason was the 2021 GMC Co-Champions with Lakota East. The Comet girls program has won or shared the most GMC titles in the leagues modern ten-team format (since 1997). Fairfield holds the record for most GMC titles ( 11 outright & shared) since the GMC began recognizing a league champion in 1977.

In additon, Mason earned their program's 9th overall District Title, making their 4th appearance in the Sweet 16 in the past 5 seasons.

Shyla Aggarwal Captures Division 1 State Ttile

Becomes First Mason Girls Tennis Champion

Junior Shyla Aggarwal capped off a tennis season "like no other" on Saturday winning an OHSAA Indiividaul State Championship. Aggarwal's win captures Mason Girls Tennis first-ever title for their school's storied program.

Aggarwal handily won her semifinals match earlier in the day, beating North Canton Hoover's Tess Bucher, 6-1, 6-1. Then it was on to a rematch of last year's D1 state semi-finals.

Last year, Aggarwal fell 4-6, 6-2, 5-7 to the eventual state champion and was the 2020 state runnerup. She made sure the outcome was different in 2021.

Aggarwal faced Whitehouse Anthony Wayne junior Lilly Black in the Ohio High School Athletic Association's Division I state championship match and won the state title in "come-from-behind" fashion 6-7(7), 6-3, 6-2. Shyla capped off a perfect season with a 26-0 overall singles record.

in other Mason state matches, the doubles team of Anna Tonkal and Risha Chada lost their semifinals match against Rocky River Magnificat's Kayra Koprulu and Caroline Moritz, 5-7, 6-3, 6-1.

The Comet doubles team of Danielle Reid and Danielle Lebedev fell in their opening match 6-1, 6-0 to the doubles team from Rocky River Magnificat, the eventual state runner-up.

Congratulations to Shyla and all our Mason Girls on their outsstanding 2021 accomplishments!


OTCA Girls State Tennis Championships

@ Upper Arlington HS


Mason Girls Tennis Wins Fifth Straight State Title

The Mason Girls Tennis Dynasty continued Sunday at Upper Arlington. Mason won their 5th straight OTCA State Title in a "miracle" come-back achievement. The Comets rallied from a 2-0 deficit to outlast Magnificat HS and bring another state title home to Comet Country.

The Comets are the first girls team to win multiple consecutive titles since Upper Arlingtion won 6 straight from 1998-2003. This one though, proved not to be so easy.

The Comets faced Toledo Notre Dame in the semifinals and cruised to a 3-0 win.  Winning their matches were Harshita Uppuganti at #2 singles, Rashi Loni at #3 singles and the doubles team of Danielle Reid and Danielle Lebedev at #2 doubles. Shyla Aggarwal, playing #1 singles, was leading 6-0, 5-0 and the #1 doubles team of Anna Tonkal and Risha Chada were up 6-2, 4-0 when the match was clinched.

In the other semifinal, Magnificat defeated Upper Arlington 3-0, setting up a rematch between the #1 ranked Comets and the #2 ranked Blue Streaks of Magnificat.  Mason had won an early season matchup in a nearly four hour marathon match, beating the Streaks 3-2.

When the lineups were exchanged, there were no surprises.  Mason put Shyla Aggarwal at #1 Singles.  Aggarwal had just won the OHSAA singles title the day before.  Aggarwal faced Audrey Smitek, who had finished third in the OHSAA doubles championship with her sister Natalie.  Natalie was in at the #2 singles position for the Mags.  The younger Smitek would face off against the Comets’ Harshita Uppuganti.  At the #3 singles position, Mason had Rashi Loni, while the Mags had freshman, Anna Mancino.  The two had played in an early season match with Loni winning a three and a half hour battle.

At one doubles, the Comets had Anna Tonkal and Risha Chada.  The duo had finished fourth in the state on Saturday in the OHSAA tournament.  Their opponents, Koprulu and Moritz had finished second in the state, taking out Tonkal and Chada in a three-setter in the semifinals.  Finally, the Comets had Danielle Reid and Danielle Lebedev at two doubles facing the same Magnificat team of Stoehr and Ospelt that they had beaten in three sets in the early season match.  

On paper the match looked dead even.

The Mags got the first point of the day at #2 doubles with Stoehr and Ospelt avenging their prior loss 6-4, 6-3.  Tonkal and Chada won the first set in a tiebreaker.  But the Blue Streaks were dominating the singles matches.  All three first sets went to Magnificat.   Aggarwal lost the first 6-4, Uppuganti lost the first 6-0, and Loni lost the first 6-4.  

The second point of the day also went to Magnificat.  Uppuganti battled mightily against Natalie Smitek, but lost the second set tiebreaker.

With Magnificat leading 2-0 and needing only one more match to sweep the Comets, things got even more grim.  Tonkal and Chada were trailing 4-1 in the second.  And Shyla was down 4-1 in the second, and looking like her incredible run to the singles championship the previous day, had left her too exhausted to stage one more heroic comeback.  Rashi was fighting hard to try to win the second set and get her match to a super breaker.  Super tie breakers (first to ten points, win by two) were used for this match instead of a third set due to the time constraints of playing indoors.

But then things started to turn for the Comets.  Chada and Tonkal stormed back from the 4-1 deficit and won their match 7-6, 7-5.  2-1 Mags.  The Comets had a pulse again. Aggarwal, playing with relentless determination, found another gear, and clawed her way back into the match with the elder Smitek.  Aggarwal erased the 4-1 deficit and won the second set 6-4 and forced the match to a super tiebreaker.  Smitek jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the deciding super-breaker and Comets, were again, on the ropes.  But Aggarwal stormed back and won the next nine points to seal the victory and tie the match at 2-2.

Just as Aggarwal was about to even the match, Loni won her second set 7-5, forcing a another super-breaker, this one to decide the State Championship.  Loni raced out to an 8-4 lead in the breaker.  The Comet bench gang was going wild, led by Junior temporary, co-captain, Riya Zutshi.  Then 9-5 Loni.  Comets are a point from the championship.  Zutshi and the gang were louder than ever.  But Mancino had other plans, as the Magnificat freshman kept bombing winners until she got the breaker back to even at nine all.  From there the two traded points, until the gutsy Loni finally won two points in a row for a 14-12 superbreaker win, and the OTCA championship. 

The Comet girls program threw down the challenge for the Mason boys who have won three-straight team titles for head coach Mike Reid. They will be seeking to continue the Mason Tennis Dynasty in the 2022 spring season.

Congratulations to Mason Girls Tennis...2021 State Champions!
