November 5, 2011

MINSTER — The good news in playing a Springfield Catholic Central team that is largely unchanged from a season ago when a 5-5 Minster squad stunned the top-seeded Irish is that the Wildcats knows what to expect.

“I think it helps having played them before,” Minster head coach Nate Moore said on Tuesday. “It’s kind of a been-there, done-that thing. We’ve been to their place and seen what the locker room is like, what the field is like. All those little things about going to new place? We don’t have to deal with those.”

Minster cross country, pair of Rangers head to state CC Saturday

November 4, 2011

The Minster girls cross country team looks to set a new OHSAA record for most state titles when it runs in the Division III state meet on Saturday at National Trail Raceway in Hebron.

The Wildcats captured their third straight state crown and 10th overall last November at Scioto Downs in Columbus. Now Minster will need to attack a new course after the OHSAA moved the state championships site after 26 years at Scioto Downs. A win would give Minster 10 girls state titles — breaking a tie with the Caldwell boys program.
