Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky night for the West Clermont Wolves, as they defeated the Loveland Tigers to extend their win loss record to 5-3! The varsity won 16-8 in a close game against the 1-7 Tigers.
“Winning is always a great reward for the long weeks of the season,” said Head Coach Nick Ayers. “We were disappointed in a few things.”
The Wolves were winning 7-0 through the third quarter after a Chayce Gambrell touchdown. “I thought the game was between two very similar teams,” said Ayers. “Both run a version of the Wing T and run similar defenses.”
The kicker for the Wolves made a season long 37 yard field goal in the 4th quarter to make the score 10-0. “I was very happy for Cameron Null, who made the kick,” added Coach Ayers. “We knew he was right around his range. He hit from 35 (yards) a few times in practice this week.”
Loveland then responded with a touchdown and a 2-point conversion that made the score 10-8. The home crowd booed loudly after the officials gave the Tigers a touchdown call though most in the stands thought their player dropped the ball.
Junior Ryan Cann caught a 49 yard pass to help the Wolves take a 16-8 lead. West Clermont ended up with 332 total yards, and the defense held Loveland to only 182 yards. According to the MaxPreps website, the attendance for the game was more than 5,000!
The Wolves next football game is coming up on October 20th. This is their final home game and senior night. “We are very happy for the kids and seniors to get the win before their senior week,” Ayers said. “The hard work has definitely paid off in close games.”

West Clermont High School swim team is diving into its first-ever season starting in November when they get to take the plunge into the school’s brand new competition pool.
The swim team wants to get up to 50 people on the team this year, and that will include students down to 6th grade. There are no tryouts for the swim team, so everyone will make the team.
Swim team member Lily Wilfert said all you need to know is how to swim to make the team. Lily was on the Amelia swim team last year, so she has some experience. “I am very excited for the season and can’t wait to start a new chapter for West Clermont,” said Wilfert.
Tori Bell agrees. “I am very excited for the season to start up,” she said. Tori also added that she made great friends as a swimmer last year and can’t wait to make more this year. Her opinion is that the Wolves will “do great this year!”

Starting on October 23, the team will host three days of swim clinics (at a cost of $20 each) to help students work on stroke technique. The clinics start at 3:15 and will last until 4:30 at West Clermont High School. Continue reading Splashing Into Season→
It was a sad weekend for both the West Clermont football team, and their fans. After losing Friday night to the Anderson Redskins, 34-42, the Junior Varsity team played Saturday morning and were not able to pull out a win either, losing just 30-48. West Clermont was tied for first place with Anderson and winning the game would’ve knocked the Redskins down to second place. The Wolves were down 27-6 at halftime, but fans never lost hope. “I thought we didn’t give our best in the first half and there needed to be adjustments. They came out at half like a new team and played much better overall. You could see the excitement in everyone when we made a comeback. We had their backs the entire game. We never gave up on our boys” states West Clermont fan, Jules Miller.

Fresh off a big Homecoming win in front of a huge crowd, the West Clermont Wolves football team is off to a great start!
The stadium’s home-side stands were filled Friday night as the team beat Withrow High School 37-7. The bleachers were filled with recent graduates, older alumni, parents and grandparents. And everyone could hear the students in the student section howling away and supporting their team.
“The wolf pack is the best student section in the city” said James Collins, the athletic director for West Clermont High School. Mr. Collins also said that West Clermont has one of the best crowds at away games.
The attendance at the Wolves’ first football game drew the best crowd yet. Local media estimated the crowd at between 4,000 and 6,000. That night they won against Princeton 28-13, it was a very exciting game.
West Clermont has been having great attendance ever since that game. Even when they played Winton Woods in the pouring down rain, West Clermont fans still came out in their raincoats and rain boots to support the team. The Wolves ended up losing that game and the next game but they did win the last three games after that giving them a record of 4-2!
