Football (7-2 4-1):
· From Terry Marshall: It looks like the SWBL Buckeye division will end in a 3 way tie this season between Monroe, Carlisle & Waynesville. Devin King needs 61 yards to tie the single season rushing record of 1,357 yards. Ben Leahy has already tied the record for kickoff returns for TD's in a season (3). One more will set a new mark. The Hornets fell to 4th place in Region 12 and will need some good luck to stay there. View attachment for Terry’s stats.
· Written by Tim Kellis: Monroe went on the road this week and found the going tough as they were upset by a desperate Waynesville football team. Waynesville was fighting not only to defend their league title they were also fighting for their playoff lives. Waynesville took the opening kickoff and marched right down the field for an early 7-0 lead on a 7 yard run by senior tailback Seth Millar and extra point by Caleb Keeton. The Hornets answered with a drive that stalled at the Spartan 8 yard line, but a 25 yard field goal by senior Zach Eckert gave the Hornets their three points. Neither team could dent the scoreboard the final three quarters. Monroe threatened mid-way through the final stanza when Devin King carried the ball to the Spartan 3 yard line, only to have the play called back due to offensive holding. Waynesville missed a 25 yard field goal with 1:43 to play, giving the Hornet faithful one last hope but a 4th down pass was unsuccessful, and Waynesville simply ran out the clock. The loss by the Hornets, their first in league play, created a three way tie at the top of the SWBL-Buckeye Division between Monroe, Waynesville, and Carlisle. Monroe will play their final regular season game at home against Northridge as 18 seniors will play their final home game.

· Coach Meibers: “Our hats are off to them. They out coached us and they outplayed us. They deserved the win. We struggled to get any momentum on offense, but our kids battled to the end. They came out on top. We’ve been on the other side of that coin a few times this season. It happens.”
· Coach Oster: “Obviously it was a call I didn’t agree with. To me, I have no idea how that can be a penalty kick. The biggest thing is consistency. They let the kids play. It was a very physical game and then to decide it on that was tough. All I can really tell the kids is to take advantage of opportunities when you have them, because something can be taken away from you, unfairly or not. We had opportunities but didn’t take advantage.”
· Coach Burnside: “That’s what was so nice to see. We just kept putting pressure on them. It really shows well for the future. But we weren’t communicating very well in the beginning. We came in wanting to stop No. 20 (Neal) but we let her go, and you can’t let a talented player like that have any space.”
· Coach Meibers: “Seth Millar is a person we need to be accounting for in every situation, and they have an extremely talented QB in Cory Young, who is a very good player and is dangerous with the ball. They are a very strong, physical, fast and quick football team across the board.”
Seth Darrell: Seth is a 2006 Monroe High School alumni and is finishing his undergraduate degree w / double major @ Cumberland University. He is an Assistant Coach of the Women’s Cross Country and Track teams.
