    The varsity track and field team is continuing to stay focused and working hard in every practice in preparation of their first meet on April 1st at Piqua.


    3/25/22: Our first Fortnite matchup was on Monday, where the Wildcats took on the sinister Skyhawks of Fairborn. The match, as always, was played with the first team to get two winning sets would be the overall winner. 

    Our first set saw Beckett Swoll and Owen Hudson Bateson down early 0-2, but then swung back with two quick victories thanks to Hudson Bateson. Swoll and Hudson Bateson worked together like Wildcats on the prowl to a tie, but eventually came up short 4-3. 

    Christian Balhetchet and Caden Dill represented the Cats in our second thrilling first-to-seven set. The Wildcats started strong, and got out to an early 2-1 lead. The Skyhawks came back in 4 straight games to make the set Skyhawks 5, Wildcats 2. 

    Part of any young program is growing pains and the Wildcats were feeling it in our first Fortnite match this week. Due to illness, the Wildcat captain David Walton played a 2v1 final set against the Fairborn Skyhawks. Captain Walton was locked and ready to take on a fearsome duo of Skyhawks! Captain Walton gave a valiant effort with one victory, but was quickly overwhelmed by a flurry of feathers and wood scraps as he went down to fearsome Fairborn players.

    Our second match of the week took place against the Global Impact STEM Geese. We started with a 1v1 with Christian Balhetchet going against a member of GISA. After a quick first victory, our set ended with a 6-1 loss. 

    In the second match, Beckett Swoll and Owen Hudson Bateson took on one of the Gesse. The set started with a Wildcat victory and ended with a clean sweep of all seven rounds giving the Wildcats a set victory! 

    Our final set had Captain David Walton and Noah Woo facing off against two of the strongest GISA Geese. We started with a win, fell behind and quickly tied the set at two wins each. In a heartbreaking finish, the Geese pulled ahead with three more victories bringing the set total 1-2 in favor of Global Impact.

    Our team is always growing and getting better! We have next week off for Spring Break, but then will be back at it with Fortnite and Rocket League!
