Although the season is off to a strong start for Loveland, the road ahead is still long. Fifteen more conference games are already scheduled. Currently, Loveland’s nearest conference competitor is West Clermont, with a record of 4-0 in conference and 5-1 overall. 

The team has defeated Sycamore, Harrison, Turpin, Milford, Anderson, Withrow and Kings so far.

“[The highlight has been] beating Turpin for the first time in all four years. We have a really good, positive energy about us. In addition, we have a new-found confidence from the messages the coaches give us,” Senior, Coleen “Jelly” Swift told Loveland Magazine. Swift was instrumental in the women’s soccer team winning the OHSAA state championship earlier this year.

“The best moment this season would have had to be the doubleheader against Kings. The energy and support from our community was more than what we could’ve asked for […] The entire program really got after it this offseason and held each other accountable for getting in shape. We were tired of being just alright and our coaches really push us to achieve our true potential,” Senior Madi McDermott claimed.
