The Camels were led by Connor Geiman (Discus) and Owen Ponting (110 Hurdles). Saturday, the Camels split up and went to 2 different varsity meets; Eastern Relays and Bourbon Co Relays. It was a cold and wet day but the Camels ran hard. This week is NKAC.
Girls- Campbell County Championships
In a fast-paced meet, the Lady Camels proved once again that we are a force with which to contend! In a close meet, we tied with crosstown competitor, Brossart, with 144 points each. We just edge NCC who ended the night with 143.5 points. In all the years I have coached here, this is the tightest finish I can recall! Coming off of tough competition on Saturday, the Ladies regrouped and many ran season bests again Monday. This is an exciting time of the season as we see our hard work start to show through our improved marks each time out.

The weather for this meet was less than ideal: steady rain, some snowflakes, cool, and windy. Our Lady Camels stepped up to the challenge and found ways to stay dry and warm up for their events. While our performances were not quite what we hoped, it was a day where weather affected the entire field and the overall meet results were not quite as competitive as usual. We finished 31st out of 56 scoring teams (many more teams than that represented). That sits fairly well considering we only participated in a handful of events.
Highlights of the Day:
· Weinberg- High Jump
· Weinberg-Triple Jump
· 4x800 (Meiser, Kramer, Kavanaugh, Florimonte)
The weather in Paris, Ky was dry, but still pretty chilly. Overall the girls ran well, bringing in a 7th place finish.

Girls- In the Donnie Carnes Memorial meet this weekend, the entire team took part in the day. Having our full team as well as beautiful weather made for a fun day. As for our performance, we saw many season bests so far and showed we can hold our own among the best in the area.
As a team, we placed 2nd (only 2.5 points behind powerhouse St. Henry) of 19 teams and it was a true team effort with points spread out among all events. Many of our athletes stepped up to sub this weekend in a pinch even when they weren’t excited about the events. That is a true example of team.

Girls- Boone Invitational (Friday Night)
Overall the Camels had a good night despite chilly temperatures and some wind. This was a great first meet for our new athletes to get a feel for a meet, and our experienced athletes to loosen up. We have been preparing for a long preseason, and it was great to see that work pay off. Most of our returning athletes had stronger performances in their events Friday night than this same week last year.
LaSalle’s meet always presents strong competition alongside some of Cincinnati’s strongest programs. Although the morning started out cold, as the sun warmed, so did our performances. Like Friday night, many of our athletes surpassed their last year’s first meet performances, and our newfound strength was evident in our strong finishes and solid form. The Lady Camels clenched a 5th place finish in a field of about 20 teams. We were only .5 point from 4th, and 11.5 points from 3rd.
First place finishes:
McKinlee Miller- 200 M Dash

Congratulations Boys’ Cross Country!! Noah Slone started our day with the AAA Boys State Championship. His early mile split was right on target, but a huge pack of competitive runners surrounded him at every turn. His final time of 17:47 and 94th place was a strong finish for a sophomore season!
Congratulations to the Girls’ Cross Country!! As a team we finished 14th of 37 scoring teams, placing us much higher than we have been in a long time. While this wasn't quite a goal, we couldn't be prouder of these ladies who showed true mental and physical toughness late in the season!
In Cross Country action this weekend, Noah Slone finished in 20th place, earning a state qualifying position. Jordan Hartig finished 26th. Scott Snedegar (33rd), Anthony Ronnebaum (34th), and David Howard (36th) rolled in as tight pack. Adam Ruschman (40,) and Corey Robinson (49,) wrapped up the Camels varsity squad. The Camels claimed the 6th place team spot, only 10 points from 4th.
Congratulations to the Lady Camels team who won the Regional Meet for the first time since 1995! Kylie Little led the pack with a 6th place finish, and Allie Franzen and Noel Slone clipped hot on her heels in 7th and 8th. This tight trio was the key to the day. Beam Kumkerd pounded the course with an important surge after the 2 mile mark to place 12th, and Devan Carrigan ran a personal best time to clinch 29th. Emma Hogle finished in 37th, and Savannah Krift in 40th helped displace runners from our competition. Great job Camels!
