Both East Golf Teams Capture GMC Title, Advance to Districts

Congratulations to the Lakota East girls and boys golf teams on capturing the Greater Miami Conference championships.  

The varsity girls golf team’s victory was its second in the last three years. The team shot a two-day team score of 612, which was 25 strokes better than their nearest competitor. They finished third at the Sectional tournament, qualifying for the District tournament next Thursday at Beavercreek Golf Course.

The varsity boys golf team earned their sixth consecutive GMC title. East finished one shot better than runner-up Mason, with a two-day total of 584. The championship trophy has now been in Hawk’s hands 10 times in the history of the program. They finished second at Sectionals, qualifying for Districts at Glenview Golf Course next Tuesday. 

Correction: OMEA All-State Jazz Ensemble

In addition to the names shared in the last edition, these musicians will also represent Lakota East in the Ohio Music Education Association’s (OMEA) All-State jazz ensemble: Ben Henderson (trumpet), Cooper Hettinger (trombone) and Russell Specht (tenor saxophone).  

Thousands of students audition for the All-State ensembles, which practice for several days in late January, working with some of the most renowned guest conductors and composers in the country. The groups will perform as part of the OMEA’s Professional Development Conference being held at the Cincinnati Convention Center Jan. 28 through Feb. 1. All student performances are free and open to the public.

Another Lakota West Senior Aces ACT

More than 1.9 million students took the ACT last year and less than 1 percent received a perfect composite score of 36. Lakota West senior Drew Kates is one of them. 

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. All major U.S. colleges accept ACT test scores and scores provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors of college coursework.
