The Varsity Cross Country Bombers headed to Christ's Church in Mason, OH on Saturday for the 2017 GCL Championship Meet.  St. Xavier entered the meet with 6 straight GCL Titles and looked to extend the streak to 7 straight on Saturday.  The Bombers would have to overcome one of their top runners being forced out of the race due to injury but they were ready.

St. Xavier started the race strong as senior Peter Dauenhauer and junior Joe Doogan led the race just before the one mile marker and the rest of the team closely behind them.  The Bombers continued to run strong as Dauenhauer pulled away from the field and was all alone by the 2.25 mile mark and seniors Michael Holly and Jack Hands moved up in the pack to get into top 5 position.

Dauenhauer finished the race in the top position to win the individual GCL Championship in a time of 16:26.8 which was 15 seconds ahead of the next finisher.  Holly ended up in 4th place with a time of 17:01.5 while Hands finished in 5th place with a time of 17:07.9.  Senior Jonathan Stansbury finished in 8th place with a time of 17:11.2 while junior Nick Mills finished 13th with a time of 17:28.5.  Other finishers for the St. Xavier Varsity included junior Joe Doogan in 15th (17:32.7) and sophomore Thomas Walters in 16th (17:37.4)

The Bombers team score of 31 was good enough to win the 2017 GCL Title and claim the program's seventh straight title.  Elder finished 2nd with a score of 68 points while Moeller finished 3rd with a score of 93 points.  LaSalle rounded out the standings with a score of 120 points.

The Varsity will turn their sights to the OHSAA Division I SW District Meet on Saturday, October 21 at 10:00 am at Voice of America Park in West Chester, OH.  The Bombers will look to advance to the OHSAA Div. I Regional Meet on Saturday, October 28.

St. Xavier took first place in the GCL Open Race as they were led by sophomore Griffen Paul who finished 2nd overall with a time of 18:08.7.  Right behind him was junior Ryan Devlin-Bergman in 3rd (18:08.8), junior Brian Mauch in 4th (18:15.16), senior Jack Brinker in 5th (18:24.8), junior Aiden Soberano in 6th (18:28.6), senior Alex Klas in 7th (18:36.2), junior Chris Moll in 9th (18:53.3) and senior Jackson Klotter in 10th (18:53.4)

St. Xavier also claimed the JV GCL Title with freshman Connor Bohrer leading the JV team as he finished 1st among all JV runners in the Varsity race with a time of 17:08.8. Freshman Nathan Mountain finished 2nd among all JV runners with a time of 17:23.4 who was followed by sophomore teammate John Dillon with a time of 17:31.8.  Sophomores Michael Hazel and Andrew Gebhardt were next, respectively, among JV runners as Hazel had a 17:43.5 and Gebhardt with a time of 17:46.2.  Junior Michael Srinivasan ran a time of 18:05.3 and junior David Reeb ran a time of 18:39.6 to round out the JV team's 68 points in the Varsity/JV race to finish 1st among all JV teams.

The Bombers also ran very well at the Freshman level in the 2 mile race and finished with 20 points to claim the GCL Freshman Title.  St. Xavier was led by Jack Thompson who finished 1st overall in a time of 11:24.3 followed by teammate Colin Sorensen who finished 2nd overall in a time of 11:26.7.  Brady Mahoney finished 4th overall in 11:31.7 while teammate John Mountel finished 6th overall with a time of 11:37.5.  Ryan LaCrosse finished 7th overall with a time of 11:39.6 and Jonathan Vonderhaar finished 8th overall with a time of 11:43.9.

The Varsity Football Bombers entered Week 8 with a new confidence after winning three straight over Moeller, Elder and LaSalle in the GCL South to win the league title outright for the first time since 2012.  St. Xavier also entered 7-0 overall and with a program 13 game winning streak dating back to last season where they won their last 6 games.  The Bombers welcomed Football North via Clarkson Secondary School out of Ontario, Canada.  Football North entered the game with a 2-4 record with wins over Cleveland Heights and McDowell HS (PA).

The Bombers honored their 58 seniors before the game as it was the last regular season home game.  This special senior class has been crowned State Champions in their junior year and has started their final year with a 7-0 record.  The 58 seniors include: Chad Adair, Charles Adams, Blake Bacevich, Kameron Baxter, Jack Berding, Brett Berger, Michael Brown, Jon Carr, Will Childs, Ben Coffaro, Evan Deters, Jack Dirksing, David Donnelly, Liam Donovan, Matthew Fox, Michael Grause, Hank Green, Jonathan Gretz, Myles Hall, Drew Harsh, Jack Heyob, Andrew Hill, Ethan Hill, Henry Huber, Bobby Jefferson, Brian Kanitz, Joe Kemper, Andrew Kendall, William Kerby, Grant Kirby, Casey Klusman, Michael Kronenberger, Zach Littelmann, Jack Logsdon, Max Mahoney, Johnny Marrocco, Alex Masraum, Sean Mesue, Ethan Meyer, Christian Neidhard, Michael Prophater, Max Rueve, Tyler Sandifer, Greg Saupe, Nick Shamsi, Kiran Shanker, Brandon Smiddy, Cameron Specht, Daniel Spetz, Donny Stock, Connor Sullivan, John Taul, Max Tongdangjoue, Matthew Torbeck, Jared Tuerck, Aaron Wentzel, Andrew Wittrock, Chase Wolf.

St. Xavier did not leave any doubt as they jumped on Football North right from the start.  Senior QB Chase Wolf started the night with three straight completions to his classmates of Nick Shamsi for 17 yards, Cameron Specht for 13 yards and Andrew Wittrock for 20 yards as the Bombers moved the ball from their 20 yard line to the Clarkson 30 yard line.  Senior RB Matthew Fox rushed 7 yards on two carries and then caught a pass for 14 yards on the next three plays to move the ball into the redzone to the Football North 9 yard line.  Clarkson came up with a sack on 3rd and goal but committed a facemask penalty that kept the drive going.  Wolf found Fox again for a 5 yard touchdown pass and senior PK Donny Stock added the PAT to put St. Xavier up 7-0 with 8:23 left in the opening quarter.  The Bombers defense forced a three and out as junior Nathan Stockman came up with a tackle for a loss on 3rd down to force a punt.  The Bombers offense gained a first down on the first play after the punt return but stalled out and turned the ball over on downs.  On the ensuing drive, Football North committed two penalties and punted the ball again.  The Bombers started at their own 46 yard line and Wolf connected with Wittrock on 1st down for 10 yards.  Wolf then connected with junior WR Jared Kreimer for 12 yards after a holding penalty by the Bombers.  On the next play, Wolf found Specht for 23 yards and then Fox rushed for 18 yards in two plays to move the ball to the Football North 1 yard line.  Sophomore RB Kellen Newman finished the drive with a 1 yard touchdown run and Stock converted the PAT to make it 14-0 St. Xavier with 3:17 left in 1st quarter.  The Bombers' defense did not allow a first down on the ensuing drive and the St. Xavier offense took over on the Football North 45 yard line.  Two plays later, Wolf connected with Fox on a 43 yard touchdown pass and Stock converted the PAT to make it 21-0 with 1:03 left in the opening quarter.

The 2nd quarter started with a senior DL Bobby Jefferson sack and Football North was forced to punt yet again.  The St. Xavier offense took over on Clarkson's 43 yard line.  Wolf connected with Wittrock yet again for 12 yards and Newman rushed for 6 yards on the first two plays.  Wolf then found Specht for 12 yards and Kreimer for 11 yards on back to back plays.  Newman finished off the drive with a 2 yard touchdown rush and Stock added another PAT to make it 28-0 Bombers with 10:13 left in the 1st half.  Once again, the St. Xavier defense forced a Football North punt after three offensive plays and on the punt return, Wittrock took it to the endzone for a 69 yard touchdown return.  Stock converted the PAT and made it a 35-0 lead.  The Bombers scored 5 more points before halftime as they forced a safety on a bad snap by Clarkson and Stock added a 24 yard field goal with 1:24 left in the half to make it 40-0 at the half.  The Bombers' defense was dominant in the first half as they only allowed 2 first downs and Football North only gained a total of 7 yards.

Football North did get on the scoreboard in the 3rd quarter as they scored two touchdowns and added the PAT's to make it a 40-14 game at the end of the 3rd quarter.  Sophomore Wyatt Hudepohl threw his first career Varsity touchdown pass when he found senior WR Tyler Sandifer for a 23 yard touchdown pass.  Senior PK Jack Berding added the PAT to make it a 47-14 game which ended up being the final score.

The defense was dominant all night and everyone contributed on a night when the offense put up big numbers.  Seniors Matthew Torbeck and Andrew Kendall led the team in tackles with 5 each while Kendall also had 2 pass break ups.  Junior Carson Kiley had 4 tackles and an INT and senior Joe Kemper also had 4 tackles with 1 tackle for a loss.  Senior Chad Adair had 3 tackles and a forced fumble while senior Johnny Marrocco had 3 tackles as well with 1 pass breakup.  Juniors Trevor Potts and Will MacDonald each had 3 tackles while MacDonald had 1 sack and 2 tackles for loss and a quarterback hurry.

Wolf finished the night 13 for 17 for 204 yards and 2 TD to lead the St. Xavier offense.  Hudepohl finished 4 for 8 for 42 yards and 1 TD and rushed 2 times for 21 yards during his time on the field at quarterback.  Fox led the team in receptions with 4 for 74 yards and 2 TD and rushed 8 times for 31 yards.  Specht caught 3 passes for 48 yards while Wittrock also caught 3 passes for 42 yards.  Sandifer finished with 3 catches for 32 yards and a TD.  Newman carried the ball 3 times for 9 yards and had 2 TD.

The win gives St. Xavier an 8-0 record and clinched a spot in the OHSAA Division I State Playoffs according to JoeEitel.com projections of Harbin Ratings.  The Bombers have now won 14 straight games dating back to last season's 6 game win streak to end the season.  St. Xavier turns their sights to Cleveland St. Ignatius in a rematch of the 2016 OHSAA Div.

The Varsity Golf Bombers looked strong at the OHSAA Div. I SW West Sectional last week as they claimed the title at Miami Whitewater GC.  They looked for another strong showing on Thursday at Glenview GC in the OHSAA Div. I SW District Tournament.  The top 3 teams from the tournament would advance to the OHSAA Div. I State Tournament held at the Scarlet Course in Columbus, OH next weekend.  The Bombers won the 2015 and 2016 Div. I State Titles and have not missed the State Tournament since the 2012 golf season.

St. Xavier did not get off to the greatest start on the East Course at Glenview but quickly recovered as they posted a front nine total of 146.  Junior Oscar Zimmerman fired a three under 33 on the East course and senior Michael Prebles shot an even 36.  Senior Garrett Madden posted a two over 38 at the turn while classmate Cameron Frazier shot a three over 39.  Senior George Mitchell rounded out the Bombers lineup with a 40 on the front 9 East Course.  The Bombers led the tournament at the turn by 6 strokes over Lakota East who shot a 152 on the East Course as well.

The back nine for St. Xavier was played on the South Course which most people consider the harder of the two courses being played.  That did not faze the Bombers as they posted the same exact score on the back nine of 146.  Zimmerman continued his steady play as he posted a one over 37 on the back nine to post a two under 70 for the round.  The round of 70 was good enough for co-medalist, however, he would finish 2nd in the individuals after losing a sudden death playoff on the second playoff hole.  Prebles continued his strong play as he recovered after three bogeys with birdies on South holes no. 6, 7 and 9 to post an even 36 on the back nine for an even par round of 72 on the day.  Frazier caught fire as he birdied the two Par 3's on the South Course by hitting close tee shots.  His tee shot on hole no. 2 was inches away from a hole in one and his tee shot on hole no. 5 was about 7 feet away that he calmly sank.  He fired a one under 35 on the back nine to post a total score of 74 for the day.  Madden was consistent as well as he shot another two over 38 on the back nine to give him a 76 for the day to round out the St. Xavier 292 team total.  Mitchell shot another 40 on the back nine to round out his score at 80.

The 292 team total earned St. Xavier the 2017 OHSAA Div. I Boys Golf SW District Title and a berth at the 2017 OHSAA Div. I Boys Golf State Tournament.  They finished 9 shots ahead of Lakota East and 16 shots ahead of Mason who both qualified for the state tournament next weekend.

The OHSAA Div. I State Tournament will consist of two 18 hole rounds, weather permitting, with the first round on Friday, October 20 and the final round on Saturday, October 21.  Each round will be held at the Scarlet Course in Columbus, OH at the Ohio State Golf Course.  The Bombers will look to win their third straight OHSAA Div. I State Title next weekend.

The Varsity Soccer Bombers traveled to Centerville HS on Saturday for a morning match vs. the Elks. St. Xavier entered the match with a 6-4-4 record while Centerville entered with a 10-1-3 record with their lone loss coming to Lakota East on September 5. Since then, they remained unbeaten in 7 straight matches. The Bombers were riding a 2 match win streak after wins over Walnut Hills and Elder.

The first half started all Bombers as St. Xavier continued to gain chance after chance but with no goal. Finally, with 4 minutes left in the opening half, junior Matthew Sutton played a ball to the middle to classmate Gino Geiser who found the back of the net with a strike. St. Xavier took the 1-0 lead to the locker room. The second half was much like the first as the Bombers continued to attack. With 29 minutes left in the half, St. Xavier converted a corner kick when junior Craig Wellens found Geiser on the cross who converted his second goal of the game. One minute later, senior Will Watkins converted a goal to bottom right of the goal on an assist from Geiser. Senior Lucas Marshall and the defense kept the Elks off the scoreboard and just before the end of the match, senior Conor Faulhaber found the back of the net after getting a cross from classmate Nathan Neal to seal the 4-0 victory to improve to 7-4-4 on the season. Senior GK Lucas Marshall recorded the clean sheet for St. Xavier.

On Tuesday, the Bombers welcomed GCL rival, LaSalle HS, to St. Xavier Stadium for a GCL match and senior night. Before the teams took the pitch, St. Xavier recognized their 16 seniors and parents who dedicated so much time over the past 4 years to the St. Xavier Soccer program. Those seniors include: Lucas Marshall, Charlie Stutz, Bailey Lach, Eddie Weber, Will Watkins, Nick Meyer, Josh Besl, Adam Scheidler, Nathan Iker, Conor Faulhaber, Adam Arar, Nick Bach, Nathan Neal, Marcus Bauer, Simba Mandizha and Andrew Warman.

St. Xavier entered the match with a 2-2-1 (7 pts) GCL record while the Lancers entered with a 0-3-2 GCL record (0 pts) with a 5-7-3 overall record. In the first meeting between the two teams at Kolping Park, the Bombers scored 3 goals and won the match 3-1 back on September 20.

The first half was controlled by St. Xavier as they forced much of the action in the LaSalle end of the field. However, the Bombers could not convert any of their 5 corner kicks in the half. Starting senior GK Charlie Stutz kept the Lancers off the scoreboard as well with 4 saves in the half along with help from Besl, Bach, Lach, Scheidler and sophomore Mike Scott on the defensive line for St. Xavier. With 6 minutes left in the half, St. Xavier had a flurry of 5 shots but once again could not find the back of the net after some great saves from the LaSalle keeper. The first half ended in a 0-0 tie.

LaSalle opened the 2nd half with an attack but could not convert on a free kick from 25 yards out as the Bombers cleared it out of danger with the help of Marshall, into the game at goalkeeper. The Lancers kept the attack on and missed just wide on a shot from about 5 yards out where Marshall forced a wider angle than desired. The Bombers forced the action and were awarded a corner kick 6 minutes into the half but could not convert. LaSalle then pressured the Bombers and received a free kick from 30 yards out but the header off the cross sailed wide. St. Xavier kept the pressure on the Lancers and earned two more corner kicks but came away empty and the game remained tied with 25 minutes left in the game. The Lancers came up with a couple of opportunities with 14 minutes left in the game but Marshall came up big for the Bombers as he made two saves to keep LaSalle off the scoreboard and the game tied. With 11 minutes left, St. Xavier was awarded a free kick from 35 yards out but the free kick sailed wide of the goal for a Lancers goal kick. The Bombers remained on the attack and earned their 10th and 11th corner kicks with 9 minutes left in the game but could not convert to keep it a nil-nil game. Finally, with with 6:31 left in the half Nathan Neal dropped a pass back to classmate Bailey Lach who snuck a shot past the goalie in the bottom left corner of the net from 25 yards out to give St. Xavier the 1-0 lead. The defense held the lead and the Bombers took home the 1-0 win on the clean sheet from Stutz and Marshall.

With the win, St. Xavier finishes the regular season with an 8-4-4 record and 3-2-1 (10 pts) in the GCL which is good enough for a 2nd place finish in the league. The Bombers turn their sights to the OHSAA Division I Boys Soccer Tournament. The draw took place on Sunday, October 8 and St. Xavier was voted as the #5 seed in the SW District which they took a bye into the second round. They will meet the winner of the #14 LaSalle/#23 Hamilton game at St. Xavier Stadium on Saturday, October 21 at 7:00. LaSalle will host Hamilton on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00 pm at Lancer Stadium.

The Varsity Football team welcomed their North Bend Rd rivals, LaSalle HS, to St. Xavier Stadium on Friday night.  The Bombers entered the game with a 6-0 record and 2-0 in the GCL while the Lancers entered with a 5-1 overall record and 1-0 in the GCL.  St. Xavier beat Moeller and Elder in the previous two weeks and with a win over LaSalle they would clinch the GCL title outright for the first time since 2012.  The Lancers beat Moeller the previous week and looked to keep their hopes for a GCL title with a win and then they play Elder in Week 10.  The King of the Road Trophy was also on the line which goes to the winner of the game each year.  St. Xavier held a 41-19-1 record in the game throughout the years going into the night. 

The Bombers' offense came on the field first and opened the game with a 6 play 65 yard drive that ended with a touchdown.  Senior QB Chase Wolf (Wisconsin commit) found senior WR Nick Shamsi for a 21 yard completion on the 2nd play of the game to move the ball to the LaSalle 32 yard line.  Senior RB Matthew Fox then carried the ball 3 times for 13 yards and then Wolf found senior WR Cameron Specht for a 19 yard touchdown pass.  Senior PK Donny Stock converted the PAT and St. Xavier led 7-0 only 2:22 into the game.  The LaSalle offense converted a first down on their first drive but could not get anything going after that and were forced to punt.  The Bombers took over on their own 41 yard line and on the second play of the drive Wolf connected with junior WR Jared Kreimer for a 61 yard touchdown pass.  Stock converted the PAT and St. Xavier led 14-0 with 7:23 left in the opening quarter.  The Bombers' defense forced a three and out from the Lancers' offense after senior DL Bobby Jefferson and senior DL Jack Logsdon came up with a tackle for a loss of 5 yards on third down.  After a short punt, the St. Xavier offense took over on the LaSalle 49 yard line.  Wolf found Fox on the first play of the drive for a 21 yard completion and then Wolf rushed for another 1st down on the second play to put the ball at the Lancers' 16 yard line.  Wolf completed three straight passes; two to Kreimer and one to Specht to pick up another first down and then on 2nd down and goal, he found senior WR Andrew Wittrock for a 3 yard touchdown pass.  Stock converted the PAT again and it was a 21-0 lead for the Bombers with 5:58 left in the opening quarter.  The St. Xavier defense was suffocating again as junior DB Nathan Stockman came up with a tackle for loss of 6 yards on 1st down and the Lancers were forced to punt after three downs.  After a punt of only 7 yards, the Bombers offense took over at the LaSalle 25 yard line.  Sophomore RB Kellen Newman took a hand off on 2nd down and gained no yards but the Lancers committed a personal foul penalty and the ball was moved to the LaSalle 12 yard line after the penalty.  Newman carried the ball 12 yards in two plays and scored on a 1 yard touchdown run and Stock converted the PAT to make it a 28-0 lead with 1:35 left in the 1st quarter. 

The 2nd quarter started much like the 1st quarter went as Jefferson came up with a sack on 3rd down and 4 and the Bombers' defense forced another punt.  On the punt, junior LB Thomas Kiessling came up with a blocked punt and it only traveled 3 yards.  The Bombers took over at the Lancers' 20 yard line and needed 4 plays to score another touchdown.  After an incomplete pass, Fox rushed twice for 14 yards and then Wolf found Wittrock for a 6 yard touchdown pass.  Stock converted the PAT and the Bombers led 35-0 with 10:14 left in the 2nd quarter.  LaSalle was forced to punt again on the ensuing possession but the Lancers' defense kept the Bombers' offense off the scoreboard for the first time as St. Xavier punted as well.  LaSalle took over on their own 34 yard line and marched down the field in 6 plays to get on the scoreboard with a touchdown and PAT to make it 35-7 with 4:37 left in the 1st half.  St. Xavier's offense picked up a first down on the ensuing drive but then punted the ball again.  The Bombers' defense came up with a huge play on 3rd down and 3 as senior DB Grant Kirby forced a fumble after a completed pass and junior DB BJ Ferguson jumped on it to get the ball back to the St. Xavier offense with 1:03 left in the half on the LaSalle 38 yard line.  Wolf then completed two passes to Fox for 20 yards and then on 3rd down and 1 from the 18 yard line, Newman took a handoff and found the endzone with 25 seconds left in the half.  Stock converted the PAT and the Bombers took a 42-7 lead to the locker room.

In the 2nd half, with a running clock because of the 35 point difference on the scoreboard each team could not get much going on offense.  The Bombers missed a 36 yard field goal in the 3rd quarter and the Lancers turned the ball over when Kiessling picked up a fumble for the St. Xavier defense.  Each team punted and turned the ball over on downs in the 4th quarter as the 42-7 score held up as the final score to clinch the GCL Title for St. Xavier and claimed the King of the Road Trophy back.

The St. Xavier offense scored on their first 5 drives to get the Bombers the early lead they never relinquished.  They gained a total of 306 yards on the night with 267 yards in the 1st half.  Wolf led the way as he was 16 for 21 for 194 yards and threw 4 touchdown passes.  Wittrock caught 2 TD and finished with 5 catches for 25 yards.  Kreimer finished with 4 catches for 75 yards and a TD while Fox had 3 catches for 41 yards.  Shamsi had 2 catches for 30 yards while Specht had 2 catches for 23 yards and a TD.  Fox carried the ball 10 times for 49 yards while Newman had 9 carries for 42 yards and 2 TD.

The Bombers' defense only allowed 181 yards on the night and kept the Lancers off the scoreboard while the offense scored on their first 5 drives to give St. Xavier a large lead.  Logsdon led the way as he finished with 6 tackles (1.5 TFL) and 1 QB hurry. Stockman had 5 tackles (1 TFL) and 1 pass break up.  Jefferson finished with 5 tackles (2.5 TFL) and 1 sack while junior DB Trevor Potts contributed with 4 tackles.
