Without cheerleaders, what would a game of St. Paul football be like? Who would get the crowd going? Who would get the student section pumped up? The cheerleaders are the heart of all the cheering that goes on at the games. Senior cheerleader Maggie Simon says that there is so much more to cheerleading than just cheering. You build such strong friendships during cheer season. Maggie says that is the best part about being a cheerleader. “You’re with each other all the time. The practices and the sleepovers are always fun,” she added.
We would like to congratulate Megan on her successful season. She made it all the way to districts and we are proud of her. As Megan said she is proud of her accomplishments this year in golf, especially being the only girl golfer. She practiced on men’s tees all season which in the long run ended up helping her reach a score of 82 on the women’s tees. Megan did a great job in preparing herself and getting mentally ready. She had the support of the school and we continue to congratulate her in her success.
The St. Paul Lady Flyer volleyball team took on three games last week, coming out on top in two, and losing just one. The Flyers played against Monroeville on Tuesday, Findlay on Wednesday, and the Crestview Cougars on Thursday. Not to mention, the weekend before, the went to the Convoy Crestview Tournament where they played three matches (nine games), placing second in the whole tournament. Though the week was long, it only helped the girls to improve and get ready for whats to come...post season!
Everyone was ready for this much anticipated game with the Flyers taking on the Huron Tigers at Kalahari Field, but the game did not go as the Flyers would have liked. The final score was 48-21 as the Tigers took advantage of Flyer turnovers to take an early lead that the Flyers were not able to overcome. The Flyers, however, did a great job on Tiger standout and Division 1 football recruit Cody Thompson, holding him to about 25 yards rushing. Therefore, the other players on the Tiger roster had to step up, and they surely did. The Tigers took a 7-0 lead on the first play from scrimmage, as Spencer Maddox sprinted 80 yards for a touchdown. On the Flyers second series, they tied the game at 7-7. It was downhill for St. Paul from there. The game was 28-7 at halftime and the Flyers just could not overcome that deficit. Coach John Livengood was not happy with the final score, although he thought his kids played very hard.
St. Paul sports are insane. The football team is predicted by Fandy to win it all and when I mean it all I mean STATE. Football has a pretty tough schedule this year which includes Tiffin Calvert, Huron, Western Reserve and their biggest rival and most trash talk week is the last regular season game every year and that is Monroeville Eagles. This year's volleyball team is also supposed to be one of the best in their division. Their games will be just as tough as the football teams with games against Monroeville and Findlay and the Convoy Crestview Tournament. But you can't forget about our cross country and golf teams who also are competitive. Our golf team will be competing as one of the best teams in Division 4 and our cross country team will be running their butts off all over, from the John Speer Invite to the most rugged track around in Plymouth.
