We are now three weeks into the school year and I wanted to write a brief coaches corner with some updates on the year so far. We’ve currently have had three open fields and the players who have been able to attend have done a really nice job and we have gotten some great work in. It is nice to get a look at some of the younger players outside on a field before the season since we are not guaranteed to get on the field in February and March. We will continue our open fields the rest of September on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00.
As for the Mum sale, I was never quite able to kick it off this year. With the school schedule, the mix of in person and remote students and other stuff going on I was unable to get information to all the players at school. I will be looking to do some fundraiser this fall but am looking at what is best for the program. We still plan to hold our usual spring L&M and Purse Bingo fundraisers.
Fall sports are in full swing and a few congratulations are due. The boys golf team captured another EOAC title on Thursday at Salem Hills and Clipper baseball players were very prominent in the victory. Tyler Andersen was the medalist of the tournament. Bayden Pipoly, Anthony Hall, Riley McElwain along with Rocco Crawford contributed in the victory. Our football team was victorious over Valley Christian on Friday night while our boys soccer team defeated Salem on senior night Thursday in a tough 3-2 victory.
The girls soccer team also picked up a 5-0 victory over Valley Christian on Thursday and the volleyball team continues their strong season with victories over Heartland and Valley Christian Thursday and Saturday. Lastly, the girls golf team had a great showing Thursday finishing 4th out of 12 teams in very strong tournament.
Additionally, a few Clippers are playing fall baseball this year including Zachary Pleska, Riley McElwain and Seth Spooner. The three kick off their season in the coming weeks.
This fall may be different due to the fact we all cannot attend games, but Columbiana continues to be very successful in many different areas. It is important for all of us to support the Clippers despite not being able to attend competitions.
A tentative varsity schedule has been posted under the schedule portion of the website or you can access by clicking here. I have just linked a .pdf at the moment since there are a few more dates I am trying to iron out.
I have been hard at work adding games for the junior varsity season. The schedule is very tentative right now as all EOAC teams are currently on the schedule, however there is a good chance we will not be playing all or even most of those games. I will post a tentative schedule sometime this month but as always it will definitely change.
I continue to look to update the website’s theme in order to make it more accessible for all devices in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for a new website “look” in the near future.

Thank you and as always Go Clippers!!
