HHS Triumphs against NCC in the District Championships Finals


The HHS Boys Varsity soccer team rushed to get into their defensive positions.

On Tuesday October 8th, the Highlands High School boy’s varsity soccer team won against the Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds in the 36th District Tournament with a final score of 4 to 1, becoming the overall champions in the District.

The 36th district is made up of Bellevue High School, Dayton High School, Highlands High School, Newport High School, and Newport Central Catholic High School. The only way to make it to the regional tournament, and eventually state, a team must either win the district tournament or be runner up. This win against NCC brings the Bluebirds one step closer to Regionals.

Two of the goals were scored by senior Caymon Stevie. One goal was scored by senior Alex Foubert, and the other goal was scored by junior Ben Fischer. The goals were assisted mainly by seniors Alex Foubert and Porter Hedenburg.

Junior Jack Banks, a member of the varsity soccer team, was ecstatic over how the game went. “We came out and pretty much dominated,” Banks explained. “It seemed like in the second half we found a good energy and hopefully we can keep that up for later games.”

Not only did the Bluebirds score well as a team, but individuals got recognized for their stunning efforts.  Stevie and Foubert were recognized and named for the District Tournament team and senior Nick Fischer was named the District Tournament MVP.

The Bluebirds’ next game will be on Tuesday, October 15th at 7 pm at home. Their opponent will be determined on Saturday night.
