Boys Golf:

The boys golf team was inconsistent this season. In dual meets they underperformed but in tournaments they excelled. They had one win against McKinley in the seven dual matches they had this year with each of the Federal League teams. Even though their record did not show, they were still good competitors this season. 

“I think we performed good this year considering our top four seniors graduated last year,” senior Tyler Shapiro said. “So, this year’s Varsity team is brand new and we went out and competed well. I am really proud of how we performed and wouldn’t have wanted to spend it with another group of guys.”

When it came down to tournaments, it was a different story. In the Cardinal Mooney Tournament during the middle of the season, they beat all of the Federal League teams with a team score of 341.

Girls Golf:

The girls golf team ended the season 5-3. They showed a lot of signs of improvement this season. The team was young this year and are looking to come out strong in the next couple of years. 

“The team definitely has room for improvement. That’s not a bad thing. There’s always room for improvement,” senior Lauren Petro said. “We had five freshmen this year, and I’m confident that they will be great golfers. They’ve got big shoes to fill.” 

Petro and junior Maddie Reemsnyder made it to the District Finals this season. This was a big accomplishment for both golfers. Making the District Finals was a great way to end the season on a high note.

Girls Soccer: 

The girls soccer team started out strong this year, going 5-0 for their first five games, Overall placing 4th in the Federal League.

“We won our first five games in a row which was a great confidence boost and beat Green, a lot of people didn’t think we would come out as strong as we did at the start of the season. This motivated not only the team but me personally,” senior Sophie Burchfield said. “We did well overall considering all the sets back we had and tried our best every game, everyone showed up to play and gave it their all which is encouraging.” 

The girls soccer team showed up to play this year. They played hard at every game ending the season with a 8-4-1 record and will continue to give it their all as the tournaments start.

Boys Soccer: 

The boys soccer team had a successful season overall. With 16 graduating seniors, this was their final time ever playing soccer at Glenoak, and they finished strong. 

“In my opinion our biggest achievement was our record, finishing the season over 500. We did let a few games slip but overall our record was better than last year which many thought was impossible,” Senior Sebastian Melendez said. “At the beginning of the year, no one expected GlenOak soccer to be as successful as we have been this year. Everyone showed that they were here to play, and I couldn’t ask for anything else for my final high school season.” The boys ended strong with a 7-5-4 record. The team overall was ruthless this year and put up a fight for every team they played against.

Boys Cross Country:

The boys cross country team won the Federal League meet, which was a major accomplishment because it was the first time they have won since 2002. 

“Winning the Federal League was one of the best moments of my high school career,” senior Ethan Laughman said. “I was so proud of myself and the rest of my teammates because we have been working so hard all year and it finally paid off.” 

Ethan Laughman and Mitchell Amos are seniors and play a big leadership role on the team and are in the top seven. The team also has a very young core with Tommy Rice (sophomore), Tesfaye Young (sophomore) and Jake Nieporte (freshman), all being in the top seven. The future’s looking bright for the boys cross country team. 

The boys are heading to regionals this week and look to advance to districts.


The boys football team ended the season with a record of 0-8. They had a couple of close games losing to Jackson only by two points and Louisville by three points. The best part about this team is that they never gave up. 

“The team has been able to keep their heads up in rough games. I feel like we performed well this season despite our record,” senior Christian Lopes said. “I am very proud of our defensive players and coaches because we had a tough year and that side of the ball held strong until the end.” 

The boys suffered on the offensive side when their quarterback broke his arm in the first game of the season. Despite all the setbacks, the boys never gave up, which is something to take pride in.

Girls Cross: 

The girls cross country team placed 5th in the Federal League. The top five runners on their team were all under 21 minutes. 

“I think the team performed really well this year, everyone dropped times and pushed themselves very hard this year,” senior Jocelyn Boone said. “It was great to see that girls were running in bigger groups and passing more girls together this year. I really think that shows how close all the girls were.” 

The girls team were eliminated at the District meet, they made a strong run this season and aim to do the same next year.


The volleyball season started off rough, with the team being quarantined right at the start of the season, not even beginning able to play one game, as well as falling behind in school missing the first two weeks.

“In my opinion, our biggest accomplishment this season was coming back after being off for the first two weeks, everyone else was already 5-6 games ahead of us, and we still came out giving it our all,” Senior Brooke Pope said. “The way our team performed this year was good. We are a young team that has a lot of learning to do, but some players have stepped up.” 

The girls may have started off rough, but they ended strong. They came to every game ready to win, and they played their hardest.

Girls Tennis:

The girls tennis team did extremely well this year. All of the girls gave it their all. 

“Our team’s biggest accomplishment this year was winning our match against Massillon,” Sophomore Kennedy Mcguarie said. “All the girls worked super hard, and nobody gave less than 100 percent. We all have a close bond and couldn’t have done better supporting each other.” 

The girls tennis team has a very promising future. They are a young team this year and are going to come back next year even stronger than last.
