High School Wraps Up Successful Fall Sports Season

Fall Sports Review 2015
 
Lady Wolves Tennis
The 2015 fall season of Lady Wolves Tennis proved to be a very productive and noteworthy
season. The ladies had high turnout (16 players) as opposed to previous seasons, and all 16
players finished the season admirably. It should be noted that 6 of these ladies were trying
tennis out for the first time, and another 5 players were in their second year of playing. The team finished with two wins, and several very close matches against Willow Springs and Clever.
 
Our lone senior, Delaney Mattix, ended the season on a high note, finishing 4th in the district
doubles tournament with her teammate Lauren Hustead (Sophomore). Another highlight was
Freshman Kennzie Cockrell, who started the season with no experience and played her way up to varsity as one of the top 6 players. She has shown an incredible ability to play consistently and be coachable in tough situations, as much of the team has also displayed throughout the season.
 
The tennis program seems to be gradually growing, with all of the current players stating
they are joining the team next year. Furthermore, next year’s five juniors who play will likely
have a good showing in our district as seniors, both with the experience and added camaraderie they bring to the team. The ladies have shown a tremendous amount of positivity and determination despite the lack of tennis facility access, and many have dedicated themselves to preparing off-season for another effective year in tennis.

2015 Cross-Country
The 2015 Cross Country season maintained its level of interest within the high school with 29
runners in the program, 17 boys and 12 girls. The high school girls’ team was made up primarily of young runners: 4 freshmen, 4 sophomores, 3 juniors and 1 senior. The team being young meant that times early on were not as competitive as they were later in the season with more experience in racing.
 
As a team they had solid finishes of 3rd in their COC meet and 4th in their District meet, as well as sophomore Rachel Bagg placing 10th at the Conference meet and qualifying for the state meet with a medal in the district race, earning All-District as well as All-Conference honors. As a coach I am excited about the future of girls cross country, we have some strong young ladies who are determined to push themselves to be even better next season. Given the breakthrough season they had this year I am hopeful that next season will prove to be even more successful.

The high school boys finished a solid, middle-of-the-pack season with a young team. The
boys garnished a solid 4th place out of 10 in the conference meet and a 6th place out of 11 in the district. Finishing 6th as a team in a very tough district, this year’s team shows depth and a promising future in the years to come. Having won some JV races, both with individual
performances as well as team performances, I would expect the runners coming up will
challenge for top three finishes as a team.

Due to some significant injuries we played more kids at the varsity level than previously
planned. I felt that our young kids that were needed performed well against a very strong
schedule of opponents. I am very proud of how our kids performed and handled adversity during our season. With an aggressive off-season conditioning program and competing against good summer competition, the coaches feel we will see more significant improvement from our program.
 
The team is very excited about the renovations and additions that are being planned for the
softball/baseball complex. As a coach, I see this as something that will only allow our program
to continue to attract talent and set a standard for our conference. I am very proud and pleased with how this group handles themselves on the field and in the classroom!
 
2015 Reeds Spring Volleyball
The 2015 Lady Wolves volleyball team had 28 players, five of whom were seniors. Nine of those players were returning varsity letter winners from the 2014 season. The varsity team ended their season in the first round of districts in three sets against Seneca. The scores were 20-25, 25-16, and 22-25.
 
Overall, the varsity record was 13-16-2. Ashley Hill was nominated to the all-tournament teams at Camdenton and Hollister; she was also nominated first team all-conference and second team all-district. Caitlin Gault was nominated second team all-conference and Madison Bauer was nominated second team all-district. The JV team ended their season with a record of 12-9. The Lady Wolves plan to continue their improvement through strength training, open gyms, camps, and leagues in the coming months.
 
2015 Reeds Spring Football
The 2015 season was one that saw the 2015 Wolves tie for the most wins in school history with 10. This year’s team finished 10-2 losing in the District Finals for the second straight year. (Something we will work to get corrected over the next 12 months). This year’s Wolves were led by an excellent senior class that provided tremendous leadership and helped to strengthen the foundation that has been built within the program the past four years. We finished the season with 76 players 9 through 12. The overall HS program record was 17-6.
 
The future is bright for Wolves Football! The program has compiled a 36-10 record over the last 4 years. We have not yet added a conference or district title to the list of accomplishments the program has earned, but we truly believe that if we stay to the mission established over the last couple of seasons we will get over the hump!
