Partnering with Positive Coaching Alliance
Seven Hills has entered into a three-year partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance, a nonprofit that works to provide all youth and high school athletes with a positive and character-building sports experience. Throughout the year, Positive Coaching Alliance will provide Seven Hills with training through live group workshops, online courses, and online resources. Workshops were held in August for all coaches and fall athletes. “The partnership will provide our coaches, student athletes, and parents with quality instruction information and resources that will positively impact our community not only in our athletics arenas but in our school community as well,” said Seven Hills Athletic Director Scott Willard.
Seven Hills Adds Girls Golf Team
For the first time in school history, Seven Hills has a girls varsity golf team. After years of practicing and competing as members of the boys varsity golf team, the girl golfers at Seven Hills are now able to compete as a team and took second place in the Little Miami Conference Tournament. They recently defeated Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy and sophomore Maggie Motch shot an impressive 39. The inaugural team’s members are Motch, freshmen Fiona O’Driscoll, Lucie Pease and DeHaven Quinn, sophomore Julia Zhu, and juniors Riley deBuys, Happy Quinn, and Emily Rosenfeld.
Fall Spirit Night
Seven Hills celebrated its grade 1-6 athletes during Fall Spirit Night on Sept. 2. Our young fall athletes were announced between the Upper School varsity soccer games on the Lower Fields. The 19 soccer and volleyball teams stormed the field as their coaches’ names were broadcast over the loudspeaker. The evening included food from Camp Washington Chili and lots of spirit gear.
Cross Country Team Starts Season Strong
The varsity boys and girls cross country teams both placed first at the Cincinnati Country Day Invitational. Senior Will Schneider came in first and sophomore Carter Stevens placed third in the boys race. For the girls, junior Annelise Hawgood placed third, freshman Addie Necco placed fifth, junior Abigail Li placed sixth, senior Riley Jones placed seventh, and junior Gigi Hawgood placed eighth. The boys team also placed first at the Bishop Fenwick Invitational with Schneider finishing fourth. The girls placed second overall with Necco finishing second.
Senior Commits to Swimming Powerhouse
Senior Corinne Kieser has verbally committed to study and swim at Emory University next year. “It has been fantastic to see Corinne’s dedication to swimming pay off with a commitment to a great program,” said Head Swim Coach Brandon Williams. “Corrine has put in so much work to get herself to this point and I know that Emory will be a great fit.” Emory has one of the most successful DIII swim programs, having won their 10th consecutive and 12th overall NCAA championship in 2019. Williams said he and the entire Seven Hills coaching staff are wishing her the best for next year. An official signing ceremony will be held later this year for all Stingers committing to play at the next level.
