The Fall athletic season has come to a close and it was a tremendous success! Over (220) Sells students represented their school on the Cross Country course, Football field, Golf course, Tennis court, Volleyball court, and the sidelines cheering this Fall, and we are proud of them all. 40% of the eligible 7th and 8th Grade student population participated in Fall Sports! This is an impressive amount of our student body benefiting from the life lessons being taught through sport here at Sells.
There were many accomplishments that highlighted our Fall sports season.
Our Golf program finished an outstanding Fall season. The Boys team finished with a 13-3 overall record. They earned 2nd place in Dublin Cup and 4th place in the Central Ohio Invitational. Great season, boys! The Girls team had equal success. The Black team finished with a 5-0 record, while the Gold team finished 4-1. The team garnered 2nd place in the Central Ohio Invitational. Great season, ladies!

Beyond the on-field success and accolades, the Sells MS Athletic program earned similar success off the field. Weekly, academic and behavioral performance was monitored by the coaching staff, yielding incredibly positive results.
The mission of Sells Middle School athletics is to provide a safe, fair, and inclusive athletic environment. The athletic experience is designed to bolster the educational experience at Sells Middle School offering fundamental skill instruction, life skill instruction, character education, and interscholastic competition.
We are looking forward to an equally as successful Winter sports season with increased student participation, and continuation of academic and athletic excellence from our student-athletes.
