Favorite Moments of the Fall Sports Season

Between boys’ tennis, girls’ golf, cross country, soccer, football and volleyball, Oriole athletes piled up more than 100 wins this fall. Those wins included a state championship by the volleyball team and sectional titles by the football and boys’ cross country teams. (The football team looks to extend its post-season run tonight in a regional matchup against Center Grove.)

In addition to those signature victories, check out the highlights that stood out for some of Avon’s athletes.

“Ringing the bell after the game against Brownsburg has to be the best feeling so far this year. Everyone loves winning games like that.”

  • Matt Bromm, 11, varsity football

“The highlight of my season was getting to know all of the girls. Each of the freshman have a different story and once you get to know them, the team becomes one big family and it’s amazing.”

  • Hannah Baines, 10, varsity golf

“The highlight of the season would have to be being able to play soccer golf with my team as a team-bonding experience.”

  • Jolee Sherman, 12, varsity soccer

“The highlight has definitely been getting to hang out with my awesome teammates and watching everyone improve so much.”

  • Lauren Meyers, 11, varsity cross country

“Winning the Cathedral Tournament again was the highlight of my season.”

  • Isabella Stallard, 10, varsity volleyball

  • Rafee Adnan, 9, JV tennis

“The highlight of my season is getting to play every Friday night with my best friends. Playing the game with them makes so much more fun every practice and every game.”

  • Alex Griffith, 11, varsity football

On winning the state title: “In the moment it was a rush of just pure happiness and relief–happiness for obvious reason but relief because after all of the hard work it finally paid off. I remember how much my cheeks started to hurt cause I just couldn’t stop smiling and laughing.”

  • Alayna Iles, 12, varsity volleyball
