    The McKinney School eighth grade girls volleyball squad isn’t used to losing. So when the players faced their first competitive loss to Troy Christian last week, after going undefeated as seventh graders and starting out the year 3–0, Coach Chris Linkhart didn’t know how they’d react. But not one player cried, and at practice the following Monday the team came up with ways to improve.

  • Not two-tired…

    The Antioch School held its recently-revived Anything On Wheels fundraising event Sunday, Sept. 23, where students, both present and past, ride from the school on Corry Street to Xenia and back for a total of about 15 miles on bicycles, unicycles, skateboards — anything on wheels. Experienced riders can choose to go the whole distance, while those new to wheels can ride around the path surrounding the school playground. Pictured above are, from left, graduate Jorie Sieck, Sam Linden (obscured), graduate Zack Brintlinger-Conn, Evelyn Potter, graduate Samantha Bold and Zenya Hoff-Miyazaki. Sieck and Brintlinger-Conn rode the entire 15 miles on unicycles, accompanied by Bold and Hoff-Miyazaki. They were met in the last stretch by their peers who had finished and circled back to bring them home. (Photo by Matt Minde)
