The End of the Fall Sports Season



A successful Fall Sports season came to an end

The fall sports season is now over for the Menchville Monarchs after the football team was eliminated by Churchland high school, and the girls cross country team did not qualify for nationals. The football team qualified for playoffs for the first time in over two decades, surprising many Monarchs by finishing with a 4-8 record, and sneaking into the playoffs as the seventh seed. They came up against a tough opponent in the first round, facing the 9-2 Churchland Truckers, who won the game 41-8.

The Menchville girls cross country team also traveled to the state competition along with two runners from the boy’s team who were able to qualify. The girls placed 12th out of 12 teams. Their top runner Jaelyn Windham ran a 20:57 and finished in 51st place. Bj Diogzon and Chris Ware from the boys team were also able to compete, but competed as solo runners, rather than with a team due to only two runners from Menchville qualifying after the Monarchs couldn’t finish top three in the division. Chris Ware finished 79th overall, and ran a 17:55. Bj Diongon came in a few seconds later, and run an 18:18, finishing in 88th place.

The fall sports season was filled with many ups and downs. A historically good season for football, and more outstanding performances by volleyball, field hockey and cross country. Next stop, winter sports season!
