Colerain Boys Varsity Soccer

Colerain opened up the 2010 season traveling to Northwest High School. Colerain won 3-0 on goals from Mitch Stehlin, Ricco Hanson, and Kevin Walker. The game was, for the most part, dominated by Colerain. The Cardinal defense did an excellent job at keeping the ball pushed forward and controlling the speed of the game. Patience and ball movement were the keys to this game for the Cards.

Colerain Boys Junior Varsity

The Junior Varsity played to a 0 – 0 draw. The Cards clearly dominated this game playing on the Knight’s side of the field and getting off numerous shots. The Northwest goalkeeper did an amazing job, keeping the ball out of the net.

2010 Cross Country Season Preview

By Brendan McDonough for

The Boy's and Girl's Cross Country teams have started practicing for a new season with high hopes after a successful run last season. Both teams finished 3rd in the conference and, for first time in 10 years, both the men's and women's programs qualified for the regional championships. This year, the programs are looking to accomplish something that has never been done in school history: send both teams to the State Championship. The boy's team is loaded with experience, led up front by senior Craig Sulken and junior Erik Tomczewski, both 1st All-Conference last season. Following them will be a strong pack of runners led by seniors Victor Zeinner and Brendan McDonough, both returning from injury-ridden 2009 seasons. Also contributing will be a multitude of upperclassmen including seniors David Friedhoff, Craig White, and Kurtis Marshall and juniors Austin Cox and Dillan Coulter. The girl's squad has a mixture of young talent and veterans alike. Seniors Allison Steinbeck, Sam and Alex Work, and Stacey Sulken have all participated in the state meet and hope to lead their team back again this season. Joining them this season will be sophomore Kristen Selier, who was an All-Conference track athlete in three events this past spring, as well as freshman Kaylee Tepee. Senior Lyndsey Yuellig, junior Tory Lekson, and sophomore Kabrella Clark also figure to make an impact this season. The team starts off their season at Harvin Park for the Fairfield Invitational on Saturday morning, August 28th. Come out and watch the team this season as they try to make history.

Recap from Harrison Scrimmage

Every long journey starts with a first step and the 2010 Colerain Cardinal Football team took theirs Friday night. After hitting each other all summer the Cards took on the Harrison Wildcats in their first contact scrimmage.

The expectation of the 2010 Cards is that they will be led by their defense. This showed early in the scrimmage when scoring for the evening was started by a 18yd fumble recovery by #55 Andrew Smith. This set the tone for tonight's contest as the defense shut down the Wildcats. Led by #21 Chris Dukes and #44 Jarrett Grace the first team defense played extremely well. The only score given up came late in the contest when many 2nd and 3rd teamers were playing.

Offensively it was Colerain football at its best. The O-line dominated the line of scrimmage leading the way for the show to begin. The first offensive score was a pass from #1 Tyler Williams to #5 Chris Davis followed by an 80yd run by #1 Williams. Then the Cards turned to the power game. Trayion Durham (#34) scored on a 7yd run, out of triple I formation, led by the lead blocking of #7 Joe Bolden and #50 Jake Blust. Williams scored again on a 20yd run and then the subs took over. Dustin Smith (#6) led the team down the field and scored himself on a 1yd keeper. The scoring was capped off by a 50yd run by #27 Chris Mimes. All of the TDs were followed by extra points kicked by #14 Tommy Budke, who was a perfect 7 for 7.

Overall the scrimmage was impressive. Offense, defense and special teams played with aggression, enthusiasm and togetherness. That is the foundation a successful season can be built on.
