Congratulations to our September Student-Athletes of the Month, Kylie Scott and Ben Blechschmid.
Kylie Scott, a sophomore on the girls cross country team has been steadily improving on the course. She finished as the teams's #5 runner for the first three meets, then moved into the #2 slot with a PR performance at the Boardman Invitational, and then led the team to a championship at the Columbiana Invitational by finishing first. The girls cross country team is currently ranked 4th in the state, and won the district meet this past weekend. They will run on Saturday at Boardman High School for a chance to qualify for the state championship.
Ben Blechschmid is a senior running back and linebacker for the Badgers' football team. Ben had 113 carreis for 894 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. He also had 13 catches for 172 yards and three touchdowns during the month. Defensively, he had 33 tackles, two and a half sacks, one tackle for loss, one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery. Ben's total all purpose yardage for the month of September was 1,356 yards. Ben has since went over the 1,000 yard rushing mark, becoming just the 16th Badger all time to accomplish that feet.
