Written by Bruce Crawford on . Posted in Cross Country, DHHS

Race Update:  The Runnin’ Red Devils rode all the way to Arabia Mountain yesterday and made the long trip worthwhile. Several runners raced superbly, bettering their times from last week at Druid Hills Middle.   The whole lot worked hard.

For the boys, Ermais Tewolde won the race in 18:40.   Also scoring were freshman Ian Schunk, Juniors Yosef Medhin and Anderson England, Freshman  Celestin Yacta, and Sophomores Juan Garces and Ermais Genet.  Overall, the boys finished second. Fine job to all the boys who raced!

The girls won the race and were led by Junior Rachel Juieng in 26:15.   Rachel won the race!  Rounding out the top 7 were Sophomore Lydia Medford, captain Juanea Everett, Senior Caroline Olson, freshman Emily Burns-Kaurin, sophomore Emily Greipsson, and Senior Sarajane Crawford.  Fine work, Red Devils who raced.

In case you missed the results from the August 25th, here is a recap;

  • The girls team won and was paced by sizzling sophomore Lydia Medford who ran a varisty time of 23:49, second overall girl.   She was followed closely by Rachel Juieng, Morgan Rossi, Olivia Mountcastle, Junea Everett, Emily Burns-Kaurin, and Sarajane Crawford.

 

  • The boys team placed second and was paced by Junior captain Ermais Tewolde, 17:49, third overall boy.  Rounding out the top seven were Ian Schunk, Anderson England, Yosef Medhin, Opiti Daniel, Richard Kwimera, and Brendan Valentine.

What Carli Lloyd learned from DHHS Soccer.

Written by Bruce Crawford on . Posted in Girls Soccer

The DHAA staff stumbled onto a video clip from last years Girls Varsity soccer game against Clarkston that eerily resembled the amazing goal scored by Carli Lloyd of the US Womens National Soccer Team in their World Cup victory over Japan.

It looks like Carli took a play out of Annabelle Finley’s playbook by noticing the goalkeeper off their line.

Thanks to Craig Leathers Photography for capturing this awesome shot!
