Bulldog boys are district champs

The Bulldogs solidified another win against Botkins High School at Trotwood-Madison High School on Thursday, Oct. 27, 4–0, clinching the Division III district championship title.

Senior Eli Eyrich — currently ranked number one in the state for points scored and number two for goals netted this season, according to MaxPreps — brought in three goals, with Senior Henry Smith-Heston bringing in one. Senior goalkeeper Krishan Miller blocked four goal attempts from the opposing team, aiding the Bulldogs in racking up yet another win against a scoreless opponent.

After the win, the team returned to Yellow Springs to a waiting escort of YS Police Department and Miami Township Fire-Rescue vehicles, which led the team’s bus from Antioch Midwest to YS High School, where community members cheered them on.

At press time, the team is set to face off against Mariemont High School on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 7 p.m., at Loveland High School for the Southwest regional semi-finals; a win at the match will send the team to the Southwest regional finals.
