Logan Elm Volleyball

logan-elm-volleyballThe Logan Elm volleyball program has five teams.  They are the seventh grade, eighth grade, freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity teams.  The volleyball program is very fortunate to gain a new head coach, Kris Kern, this year.  Here is a look into Logan Elm volleyball 2016.

The seventh grade team is coached by Michelle Fraley and ended the season with a record of 7-9.  The eighth grade team is coached by Kim Glick and has finished with a record of 1-15.  There are fifteen girls on the seventh grade team and twelve girls on the eighth grade team.

Currently, the high school teams are still playing their season. The freshman are coached by Kris Kern with a record of 10-2.  Katie Hammel coaches the junior varsity with a record of 12-6.  The varsity team is also coached by Kris Kern and they have an outstanding record of 20-0.  The varsity team is the most successful of Logan Elm’s volleyball teams this year.  The high school players can play on multiple teams or on just one, depending on their skill, but they can only play up, not down.  For example, a freshman can play for varsity, but a senior cannot play in a freshman game.  There are seven girls on the freshman roster, twelve on the junior varsity roster, and thirteen girls on the varsity roster.  Most of the girls will be coming back next year to play volleyball for Logan Elm, except for the five seniors:  Tabi Pontious, Rhianna Lucas, Baylee Hartman, Savanna Cheadle, and Erika Hayes.

So far, the varsity team is guaranteed co-champions of the Mid-State League Buckeye Division with a very good chance of being sole champs.  They are currently ranked number four in the state in Division 2.  They are the highest ranked public school in our division.  No one can doubt the success is shared by the players and their new coach, Kris Kern.  He is the winningest high school volleyball coach in the state of Ohio with a coaching career record of 753 wins and only 81 losses.

In conclusion, it is safe to say Logan Elm volleyball has been exciting to watch at every level, especially the varsity.  All the fans are wishing the high school teams good luck this week as they finish out their regular season and looking forward to watching them play in the tournaments.  A big “thank you” to all the coaches for their time and dedication to Logan Elm volleyball.  See you at the game!

Professional Soccer Highlights-Scores-Results

download298059ca723b94f8e1ac564b611a48bcHey reader today I will be talking about Professional Soccer.  In this I will tell you scores, highlights, and results of Professional Soccer. Some of the teams I will tell you about are The Columbus Crew and LA Galaxy. Those teams are in a league called MLS. I will also talk about teams that are not in that league. The league these teams are in is called Barclays Premier League. For example Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester United.  You will hear me talk about more of the teams not in MLS because the teams that are not in that league are from out of the country and are more skilled at soccer.

First off I will tell you some of the teams that are in the Barclays Premier League. Real Madrid: finished 6-0-4, Barcelona: finished 10-2-1, Mancester United: finished 4-3-1. Now I will tell you about some of the main highlights of this season. Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo does bicycle kick in to the goal against Levante.ronaldo9

First off is there records… The Columbus Crews finished 6-0-5 and they didn’t have as good as a season as last year. Now is LA Galaxy. They also didn’t do so good this year but their record was 2-7-3. One more teams record I want to talk about that I didn’t monition is The New York Red Bulls. This team had surprisingly no losses! Their record was 6-7-0.
