On Monday October 5, Turpin took on the Madeira Warriors at Madeira in a big road game. It was Madeira’s senior night so it was a very emotional game for each team with the Spartans wanting to avenge last year’s loss to them.
The match started out back and forth between the Spartans and the Sevin Hills Stingers. While the Spartans were handling the pressure from the Stingers, late in the first half, Senior Luke Gonos took a touch off of a deflection and hammered it into the back of the net to put the Spartans up by one.
Turpin’s Lady Spartans continued their winning streak as they faced Glen Este’s Lady Trojans. The starting line-up was made up of Senior Ally Gormley, Juniors Claire Armbruster, Emily Cattran, Charlotte Kerregan, and Marisa Cerchio, and Sophomore Madi Hicks. With help from Natalie Makin, Lauren Kobasuk, Peyton Kennedy, and Sharadyn Ille the Spartans were able to secure a win in just three games.
Turpin’s Varsity Volleyball team has been quite busy. Last Thursday, Oct. 1st, the Spartans traveled to Withrow to play them for the second time this season. Turpin came home with the win with scores of 25-5, 25-2, and 25-8.
For the next 12 months, students and fans of Turpin High School will have bragging rights against their Forest Hills School District mates at Anderson. The Spartans shut out the Redskins 35-0 high on Turpin's hill. Friends and family are connected to the two schools separated by about three miles, but when it comes to football, all bets are off.
The Lady Spartans defeated #1 ranked Walnut Hills, 1-0, for their third straight ECC conference win following wins against Withrow and Kings.
On a chilly Thursday morning last week, the lady Spartans traveled to Mason High School to particpate in the Sectionals tournament.
