The Varsity basketball team took on Moeller in the first round of the OHSAA State Tournament at Fairfield High School on Friday, Feb 27. This was the final game of the year, as SHS lost 55-19. Moeller is the sixth seeded team in the tournament, and is the favorite to come out of the Southwest district.

The Varsity Basketball team played their final game of the season on Friday, Feb 27 against Moeller at Fairfield High School in the first round of the Ohio High School Athletic Associaton (OHSAA) State tournament.

Moeller proved their sixth seed in the city, and outplayed SHS. The final score was 55-19 in a hard fought game.

“Struggled but competed. Played for each other. Battled but never quit. Represented SHS and the community well. In the end, that is everything,” Head Coach David Moss said via Twitter.

It was the final time on the court for seniors Matthew Green, Eric Stepp, Nick Gehrlich, and Jalen Shropshire. This was their last game in an SHS uniform.

“It is sad to see them go. I enjoyed watching the seniors throughout their careers,” said senior Jeffery Ferrell.

Attention will now focus towards the spring sports season:

  • The boys tennis and girls lacrosse teams will look to repeat their state title runs,
  • The baseball and softball teams will pitch for first in the Greater Miami Conference (GMC),
  • The Track and Volleyball teams will look to build from their past successful seasons.
