Fun photos from the Winter Sports Season


At first glance, it may look as if this wrestler’s head is turned all the way around. Actually, that’s Beavercreek’s 179 pounder Jordan Dillon recording a pin against Carroll’s Devon Younker.

Not that they’re superstitious or anything, but the Cedarville boys basketball team did this towel swirling ritual during a teammate’s free throw attempts, and the player made them both, in a recent home game with Greeneview.

Last week was a pretty good one for Gavin Gerhardt (35). The Xenia Buccaneer senior enjoyed a signing ceremony to play football at the University of Cincinnati, on one day; he then helped the Bucs win their first boys basketball game of the season, the next.

GREENE COUNTY — It seems like just yesterday we were all running around in shorts, doesn’t it?

Okay, maybe not. But it’s true that the winter sports season is nearly half over for some. And now just the “cool” kids (get it? Cool? …. because it’s cold outside? … nevermind), and showing up at basketball games in shorts.

And most of them are on the court.

Enjoy these photos that didn’t fit into our newspapers, during the first half of the 2018-‘19 high school winter sports season.
