Bella scored 29 points against the Lady Vikings and leads the conference in scoring at just under 19 points per game. She becomes the fourth girls basketball player in CHCA history to reach the 1000-point plateau.

Collin Murphy – Senior – Swimming
Collin is easily one of the hardest workers on the team. His incredible dedication to the team and to his training is paying off. Collin has been stuck just over a minute in the 100 free for several weeks; and finally this past meet, he dropped to a 59.2. I am so proud of Collin for this accomplishment, and I know it is not over. Any coach would love to have a team full of student-athletes like Collin. He is an incredible young man, and I cannot imagine the team this year without him. He is the heartbeat of this team.

Bella Answini – Senior – Basketball

CHCA Volleyball Setters
The dynamic duo of junior Carmen Soloria and senior Erin McDaniel is at the helm of this State Final Four team. Their poise and leadership on the court directing the attacking athletes and confidence in their passing athletes has not gone unnoticed. These two setters are ready to finish the season off this weekend in the State Final Four!

Katharine "KC" Clayton – Sophomore – Volleyball
KC, a sophomore libero, was a key factor in CHCA's District Final win against West Liberty-Salem. KC's 14 digs led the Lady Eagles defensively. KC has big shoes to fill next season and is absorbing all tips from our senior leadership this year. Her presence on the court continues to grow with each moment these Lady Eagles have together.

Jackson Davis – Senior - Cross Country
Jackson had a gutsy race at the Regional Meet race in Troy Saturday, finishing 14th and qualifying for the Ohio State Cross Country Championships.

Blessings to all for a season of challenges and triumphs!

Jackson, a senior, won the MVC Cross Country Championships individual title on Wednesday at Seven Hills' course in a winning time of 17:32.54. Congratulations Jackson! William, a sophomore, has been running as our number-two runner this season behind a strong senior (Jackson). William brings a toughness to our team and is working hard to move deep into the postseason. He has run twice at 19:00 and is looking to become an 18-minute 5K runner this week. He is a multi-sport athlete and helps the CHCA community with his quiet leadership and compassion. William is a blessing to have on our team this season!

Riley Sauer – Freshman - Cross Country
Riley, a freshman, has a senior sister (Sam, a past Athlete of the Week recipient) who is a strong part of our leadership team at CHCA, so following in her steps could be a little daunting, if you let it. Riley does not let it! She has been making great progress this season and is closing down time to finish nearer Sam. Riley is racing well and is looking to help the Lady Eagles move on past this weekend (District). She is a fun addition to our team and works tirelessly toward betterment! Riley is a blessing to her team and the CHCA community!

Katharine Clayton – Sophomore – Volleyball
KC, a sophomore libero, has filled big shoes with taking over the libero spot on the team. Her passing consistency in matches this week, ending with Lebanon, greatly impacted the team’s success. The CHCA squad will need this first-contact consistency leading into the postseason tournament. KC also leads an SOS group, Canines for Christ!

Amelia Arthurs and Saylor Brock – Soccer
Amelia, a senior, showed the ultimate sportsmanship this past week in our win over North College Hill. At the end of the match, one of the North College Hill players was injured. Amelia put the player on her back and carried her to the NCH bench. The sportsmanship exhibited is exemplary of what we strive for all players to show on and off the field. Saylor, a sophomore, was a key factor in our win over Seven Hills. Saylor's versatility and ability to shut down opposing key players allowed us to keep Seven Hills scoreless and to win the match.

Katie Gansle – Senior – Volleyball
Katie, a senior attacker, was a force at the net last week with 25 kills. Katie has a hybrid position on the court, playing all three front row positions, OH/MH/RS. Katie's mindset of team over individual has allowed her to embrace this difficult task.

Jackson Davis – Senior - Cross Country
Jackson is the Eagle cross country team's leader on the course and off. His win at the CHCA Invitational this past week is testament that his summer work is paying dividends. He is getting fit and fast at the right time. Davis is a person our team looks to for support and leadership. With a strong group of athletes vying for the MVC cross country title this week, we are excited to see what Jackson can do. CHCA Distance Crew has been blessed to have Jackson Davis lead our team.

Katelyn Bruns – Senior - Cross Country
Katelyn has been improving rapidly over the course of the season and is now chasing toward the front in many races. She is a well-rounded athlete and student being involved in a variety of academic and service clubs at CHCA. Her drive to get better and work smart is an awesome example for her teammates. Katelyn has personal and team goals and is able to rally our team in pursuit of the goals. CHCA is blessed to have Katelyn as a student-athlete, and we look forward to where her goals lead her over the next few years.

Emma Sauve and Ava Hoffman - Sophomores – Soccer
Emma, a sophomore, is the epitome of a team player. She works hard in practice every day and does whatever we ask of her. She is coachable and always puts the team first, even when it means playing keeper against CCD when she hasn't played keeper in a year. Emma's team first mentality is a dream to have as a coach and for her teammates. Ava, also a sophomore, has dramatically stepped up in practice over the last four weeks, and as a result she drives the work rate and training mentality we want as a team and it shows on the field. She works to set our team up for success and creates countless offensive opportunities. Ava's skill and vision are an integral part of our team and key to our success. Ava and Emma's team first and team pride mentalities were exhibited in the recent match against CCD, all the way to the 80th minute regardless of the score they worked every minute!

Sammy Vibberts – Freshman – Soccer
Sammy was nominated by CHCA assistant coach Meridy Glenn. Sammy has been a fearless, creative, and playmaking presence for CHCA and leading the team in assists. Against Badin (#14) and Summit (#4), both Division II teams, Sam's work rate both at midfield and forward created exciting attacking plays - like the one setting up a brilliant goal against Badin. Her defensive presence helped shut down Summit's strong midfield, limiting their shots on goal and kept CHCA in the game until the final seconds of the match. Her presence is not just with the ball, Sammy is the first one to check on an injured player even if that player is the opponent. She is quick to give them a pat, help them up, or just make sure they are okay. Sammy represents the quality of sportsmanship and team play CHCA strives to develop.

Rylie Wichmann – Senior – Volleyball
Rylie, a senior captain, tallied 19 kills this past week in matches against Columbus DeSales and Miami East. Her .356 kill efficiency is a force as an outside attacker. This defensive dandy also snatched her team 30 digs.

Suzanna Bruns – Senior - Cross Country
Suzie has been working and improving throughout the season. She has had significant time drops over the 5K distance this season. She is always the kindest athlete on the team and goes about her work daily. Consistent quality work over time brings about achievement. Suzie is a real blessing to have on our team!

Sebe Leni – Sophomore - Cross Country
Sebe helped with supporting his teammates this summer for conditioning and runs, and his season has been showing good signs from his preparation. He has been a teammate which brings fun and energy. Sebe has grown in leadership, trust, and is going to finish the season on a high note. Sebe is growing daily and is truly a blessing to all of us.

Kate McDonough – Senior - Cross Country
Kate is playing two sports this fall (soccer and cross country) and because she did her summer conditioning she is able to excel at both! She is a leader at CHCA for our cross country team, Student Organized Service, and is working to find the right place to make an impact next year! She has been running well and is ready to take it to the next level at the right time! Bless you Kate as you contribute to our team, school, and community!

Jackson Davis – Senior - Cross Country
Jackson is a driven student-athlete whose example of compassion, work ethic, and care for others makes him a very valuable team leader! He is racing well this season and is looking to finish his senior cross country season in Obetz on a high note! Bless you Jackson for your voice, compassion, and willingness to work hard and smart!

Katelyn Grimes – Senior – Volleyball
Katelyn, senior outside hitter/Libero, was honored in the final points of the fifth set during CHCA's match against Mercy McAuley, with her 1,000th dig. This 5'5" libero must play front row for the Eagles this season; however, she managed to tally this defensive milestone.

Colin Ames – Junior – Football
Colin, a junior quarterback, went 9-of-12 for 187 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions. He added a rushing touchdown as well in the Eagles' 56-19 win over Norwood.

Lexi Adams and Olivia Hahn – Juniors – Soccer
This dynamic duo of juniors are leaders both on and off the field. Lexi is a co-captain and Olivia is a captain in the making. Lexi has been a solid anchor for our defense and the entire team. Olivia has also been a solid reliable player in our midfield. They are being named Athletes of the Week for their support of the team but also their work off the field. These two started an early morning prayer group on Wednesdays on their own and the group grows weekly! These two put the team before themselves on a daily basis and strive to help others both spiritually and athletically. Congratulations Lexi and Olivia.

Mary Jones – Junior – Volleyball
Mary, a junior and a newcomer to CHCA volleyball, is taking CHCA's strength and performance training to a new level. Mary had an off the charts week in the weight room and is transferring this new strength and endurance into her game play. The coaching staff is looking for dynamic things out of Mary these next few weeks in her game play. Mary ended last week against Seven Hills with a dynamic .667 kill efficiency.

Bella Answini – Senior – Soccer
Bella battled back from injury to get back in the field and responded with three goals and an assist. Her competitive drive is second to no one! She is a vital member of our team and extremely versatile.
