What a start to the fall sports season! We are very blessed and excited to have sports again and our fall sports teams have not disappointed! Our Girls Soccer team has gotten off to an impressive start, going 5-4 through their first 9 games of the season. The soccer team has a great group of seniors and juniors to go along with some talented sophomores and freshmen. The upperclassmen have done an outstanding job in helping bring this young, but talented team along. They have a chance to compete for the NWC title this season and to make some noise in the tournament. Our Lady Knight Volleyball team has played one of the most difficult schedules in Northwest Ohio, playing 2nd Ranked Marion Local and 12th ranked St. Henry to begin their season. Our volleyball team is starting to find their groove as they are beginning to figure out how to mix in some talented freshmen, to a senior dominant team. The Lady Knights are currently 7-4 overall and 4-0 in the NWC. Our Boys and Girls Cross Country teams have had some really impressive showings in their most recent invitationals at Ottawa Glandorf and Spencerville. Our boys’ team finished 3rd at Ottawa and 4th at Spencerville. The girls’ team followed those performances by finishing 5th at Ottawa and 5th at Spencerville. Keep your eyes on this group of runners as they are poised to make a deep run in the tournament. Our boys and girls golfers have been in action since early August and are set to compete in their district tournament. Both teams have shown a lot of growth over the course of the season. Finally, our football team has gotten off to a great start, going 2-2 through their first 4 games and are set to play Spencerville for a chance at 3rd or 4th place in the conference tournament. The Knights are excited about the opportunity to make some noise in the playoffs this season, which are set to begin October 9th.
As we move into the tournament season, we are looking forward to our student-athletes having the opportunity to compete for championships! The Winter season will be here before we know it and as more information is available on how the OHSAA plans to move forward, we will be sure to pass that along. We are excited to have wrestling as a varsity sport this year and wish Coach Sawmiller the best of luck. Coach Etzler and Coach Gregory have been working hard to prepare for an exciting season.
As always, I look forward to seeing Knight fans and the Crestview crazies pack the stands again, but until then you can follow both our indoor and outdoor live-streamed events through the Crestview Athletic Webpage. I would like to thank the Knight Pride club for making sure that Knight Nation can still enjoy the game, even if it isn’t from the stands! As always, GO KNIGHTS!!!!
