2016’s Top 10 Moments in Tiger Sports

With the year coming to a close, we take time to reminisce on the past year in sports. 2016 has been filled with countless games, memories, and championships that have added to the legacy of St.X’s athletic excellence. Now, as the crystal ball counts down to midnight, WSTX Sports would like to do a countdown of our own over the next few days. Let’s countdown the Top 10 Moments in Tiger Sports for the year of 2016!

Starting with #10… Tiger Swimming wins their 28th straight title.

2016 Swimming and Diving State Champions

For the 28th consecutive year, the Tiger Swimming and Diving team are Kentucky High School Swimming and Diving State Champions. The last time Tiger Swimming lost State, Ronald Reagan was the President of the United States.

The 200 yard medley relay team of current seniors Martin Nitzken and Keefer Barnum, graduate Matt Steiden and Clayton Forde, who now swims at Georgia, got the day started off right for St. X. They broke the state record in the event by .59 seconds and won by 3.14 seconds over Covington Catholic’s relay team.

Over at the 1 meter Diving competition, now graduated Michael Miller won with a score of 437.05 and beat Evan Brungs of Convington Catholic by 13.65 points. The only other individual winner on the day for the Tigers was Barnum in the 100 yard breaststroke. Barnum won the event with a time of 55.31. In the prelims on Friday, Barnum broke the state record in the event with a time of 54.69.

The Tiger Sharks look to capture a 29th straight title next year, which would tie the national record for most consecutive titles.

State Meet Preview


Today, the Tigers will race at the Lexington Horse Park to compete for the 3-A state title. The Tigers should win with dominating fashion as they are currently ranked 12th in the nation by milesplit.com and first in the southeast region. The Tigers toughest competition should once again be Manual’s Yared Nuguse, who won the regional race 3-AAA regional race last week, and Tates Creek’s Alex Mortimer who both currently hold the best two times in the state, respectively.

“We’ll be chasing Yared Nuguse and Alex Mortimer,” says senior Ryan Guenthner. “I know we’d love to beat them, but I think as long as we’re chasing them and we run our race we should be fine. As long as we get the team win we’ll be happy .”

The Tigers will be looking to win their second championship in a row and four in the past five years.

img_6344-1

On Saturday, the Tigers will race in the Region 3 AAA meet at Tom Sawyer Park at 1:45. The Tigers are predicted to sweep the race even with senior Ryan Guenthner and Patrick Schaefer not racing due to injury precautions.

The Tigers toughest competition will be Manual’s Yared Nuguse whose best time is 15:19.10 which is currently best in the state. However, while Nuguse will be the toughest competition in the Region, St X should have no problem winning the race overall. The Tigers are still one of the best teams in the nation that can run as a pack. Even with only three of the top five racing on Saturday, the time between all of them finishing is within only seven seconds.

Junior Cooper Marchal is currently the fastest with a 15:37.70 and followed closely by sophomores Zach Larkin and Grady Shiftlet. The top three runners for St X on Saturday could all place in the top five with juniors Thomas Knepshield and Eric Portaro closely behind.

The Tigers should have no problem winning the region with their depth, ability to run as a pack, and runners who could score in the top 5. Do not be suprised if all of the Tigers’ scorers  finish before any other team has three runners finish.

Tigers Place Second at Palatine

(Left to Right) Zach Larkin, Ryan Guenthner, and Cooper Marchal

The varsity cross country team placed second in the Palatine Invitational this weekend which had heavy competition from across the country. The Tigers were led by junior Patrick Schaefer, sophomore Grady Shiftlet, and junior Cooper Marchal who placed 17th, 29th, and 30th respectively. Other scorers for the Tigers were sophomore Zach Larkin and senior Ryan Guenthner.

“I thought we did pretty well,” said Guenthner. “Our goal at every meet is to win because we feel like we have the talent, but Palatine is a big meet with a lot of strong competition that we’re not used to, so getting second is a pretty good accomplishment.

“I think that for my first race back [from a strained calf] I did well, but I’m not where I want to be. I was only 5th for us, and I know I need to improve a lot more if we’re going to win state and have a shot at making it to nationals. Plus, my goal is to be my absolute best, and I don’t feel like I’m anywhere near my best yet.”

The junior varsity dominated the field with a score of only 24 points. Senior Andrew Edwards won the race and was followed by junior Johnny Vaughan, sophomore Eoin Corbett, junior Clint Sherman, junior Joey Schrepferman, and junior Nick Poole who placed third, fifth, sixth, ninth, and 22nd respectively.

“I thought I had a pretty good chance to win this race.” said Edwards. “I wanted to go out a little fast to see if anyone could hang with me. I knew the competition would be stronger and I knew that the results would help give coach a good idea of what our state team would look like, so I had even more motivation than usual.”

“I think we’re really starting to show our true strength and depth,” said Guenthner. “We have a lot of guys who are in great shape and still improving. It’s not just the top seven. This is starting to look like a national caliber team, and we’re only just scratching the surface.”

Tiger Sports’ Weekend in Review

Hello, Tiger Nation! The Fall Sports teams had a full schedule this weekend, with every team having events. We will be highlighting how every team fared over the weekend. First, lets take a look at how the Tiger Golf team did:

Tiger Golf traveled to Persimmon Ridge Golf Course for the Battle of the Bluegrass Tournament. The team has taken some hits from injuries with two of their top golfers. Drew Doyle (freshman) and Shawn DeWeese (senior) will both be out for the rest of the season. However, the Tigers still are optimistic as Regionals approaches in nine days. Next, we will look at the Tiger Cross Country Team.

The Tigers won the Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational, one of the most prestigious regional races, with a score of 96. The runner-up was nationally ranked Carmel high school with a score of 105 points and Trinity placed third with a score of 139. The Tigers were led by junior Patrick Schaefer, sophomore Grady Shiflet,  junior Cooper Marchal, and sophomore Zach Larkin who placed eighth, 12th, 13th, and 25th, respectively.

“I just went out with the guys I knew from in-state and tried to keep with them during the race,” Schaefer explains. “Everyone stepped up and filled their positions and it felt like freshman year (2014) when we beat them by one point. It was just so exciting to be around all my teammates and be able to share a victory with them.”

Other major contributors who stepped up for injured top five runner senior Ryan Guenthner were junior Eric Portaro, who also scored for the Tigers’ seeded team, and Thomas Knepshield, who was the sixth to finish for St X. Both Portaro and Knepshield had personal records of over 20 seconds. Portaro ran a 16:20.40 and Knepshield ran a 16:26.56.

“I had the same positive mindset I have going into every race,” Portaro says,”but when coach told us this would determine who would move back to JV, I knew I had to do something different than usual. I kept Grady [Shiftlet] in sight for the first two miles to get a good start and I hung on for as long as I could and let it all out.”

The team will begin competing out-of-state over the next two weeks at the Palatine Invitational and the Great American meet.

“I don’t think I could be happier about how things went today,” Guenthner says. “I thought everyone raced really well and showed what they are capable of. I feel like we have a great chance to win both of these huge meets and really get some good practice for NXR (Nike Cross Regionals).”

The Tiger Football team was firing on all cylinders in their clash with traditional powerhouse Highlands on Friday night. The Bluebirds spotted the Tigers 38 unanswered points in the first half before ending the scoring run near the end of the second quarter.

On offense, the presence of senior wide receiver Blake Roshkowski was felt for the first time since last season. The coaches had been easing him in the last few games, but this past game was the first time they really cut him loose. Roshkowski proved he was ready to go, rushing for 45 yards and one touchdown and caught two passes for 40 yards and a touchdown.

He was not the only contributor, however. The Tiger Offense rushed for 300+ yards in their victory. Sam Taylor, celebrating his 18th birthday, was given a nice present of 134 yards and a touchdown. Will Ginter added 43 yards and had an ankle-breaking touchdown run as well.

Defensive play was highlighted by an interception by junior DB Jake Netherton, and a 41-yard fumble return by senior linebacker Chandler Simpson. The defense allowed 331 yards, but much of that came with the second-stringers in during the second half. The first team allowed only one touchdown towards the end of the first half.

The game ended with the Tigers winning by a score of 45-18. The team now host PRP at home next Friday. The Panthers are coming off of a 29-10 loss to Trinity.

The Freshman and JV teams both notched huge wins over Ohio powerhouse Moeller on Saturday. The freshman team won 6-0, scoring on a punt return for a touchdown. The JV team won 49-31, led by wide receiver Brycen Harkins and running back Anthony Moretti, who eached scored twice.

Last but not least we least we highlight the Tiger Soccer team. Coming off of being upset by Manual last Thursday, the team had to do some soul-searching over the weekend. They traveled to Indiana to play powerhouses St. Louis Marquette and Quincy Sr. High Schools.

Both games resulted in 1-1 ties. Goals were scored by Sam Graber and Alex Piscrita, respectively. Tiger Soccer has also been plagued with a few injuries, with midfielders Trent Ennenbach, Bennett Moorman, and forward Brad Middleton all on the sidelines.

The question now is who is going to step up to create some offensive firepower. That will need to be answered soon as postseason play looms. For now the Tigers will hold steady, and look on to a district matchup against Brown on Tuesday.

Tiger XC ranked 1st in Preseason Rankings

The Tiger Cross Country team has already picked up some early season recognition. KY Milesplit ranked the Fastest Returning XC teams and unsurprisingly, the Tigers were ranked #1 in the state. By A LOT. Seriously, the gap between #1 and #2 is scary. Based off of last year’s season times, St.X leads over rival Trinity by 110 points. To put that into perspective, on average, every runner finished over 24 seconds faster than Trinity runners.

The team returns five of seven runners from the State Meet (which they won). The team will be led by Ryan Guenthner who is ranked the 4th best runner based off of last year’s times. Not far behind, though, will be Junior Patrick Schaeffer and Sophomore Zach Larkin. All three of these runners placed in the Top 11 finishers at the State Meet last year.

Their first meet is the Tiger Run on Saturday @ River Road Country Club. If these rankings are accurate, look for the team to completely blow out the field. At this point, the Tigers look like a good bet to win their 22nd title this Fall. Stay tuned, Tiger Nation.
