The Spring athletic season has come to a close and it was a tremendous success! Over (250) Sells students represented their school on the Baseball/Softball diamond, Tennis court, Lacrosse field, and the Track this Spring, and we are proud of them all. Almost 40% of the eligible 7th and 8th Grade student population participated in Spring Sports. Close to 65% of all students participated in at least (1) sport this school year! It is great to see a majority of our students benefit from the life lessons that can be learned through sport in our athletic program.
Our Spring athletic season is highlighted by the play of our Lacrosse program. Our 8th Grade Boys team won 10 games, and capped their season with an Ohio State Division 4 Lacrosse Championship! The 7th Grade Boys team had a solid season, winning 5 games. Meanwhile, our 8th Grade Girls Lacrosse team went 9-4-1. The 7th Grade Girls team won 3 games. Congratulations to our Lacrosse program for a great season and continuing our strong lacrosse tradition!

Our Boys Tennis team had another terrific season. They finished with an 7-5 record against our area’s top competition. Great season, boys!
Our Track and Field program had a fantastic season. They worked hard every day to improve. Many of our athletes finished the seasons with personal best times and distances. The girls team finished with 2 dual meet victories, while the boys team won 3. Notably, we had an outstanding showing at the OHSAA State Track Championships. 6 different athletes qualified for this meet by being among the top 24 competitors in the state of Ohio. Tessa Grady, Ava Krumpak, Hannah Schober, and Angeline Savage qualified for the 4 x 200m Relay, Will McGraw for the 1600m, Tessa for the 200m, and Kylie Feeney qualified for the 1600m and 800m dash.
