Lady Spartans Soccer Advance to District Semifinal in Tournament
Waynesville dominated in their opening round tournament game with an 8-0 win over Tri County North!  Junior Allie Freese started the scoring for the Lady Spartans with a cross in front of the net that was accidentally played into the goal by a Tri County North player.  Sophomore Brooke Woody followed up with a goal of her own, hustling to keep the play alive and finish Freese’s cross.  Then, sophomore Sam Erbach earned a hat trick for the game scoring 3 goals in a row before the end of the first half.  She was set up for those goals with assists from sophomore Kyla Harvey and freshman Baylee Williams.  Senior Emma Whitaker got the goals started in the second half with a strong shot from the penalty box into the side netting off an assist from Erbach.  Goal #7 came when a corner kick by Freese was headed past the keeper into the back of the net by Erbach.  The final goal of the game came when junior Alyza Camp found Williams open in the middle of the field.  After taking a touch to beat a defender, Williams found the back of the net with her shot from the penalty box.  Junior goalkeeper Gracyn Armstrong and the Waynesville defense earned their 9th shutout of the season with strong play and solid possession.  The Lady Spartans continue their tournament run Monday night at Springboro High School.  They will be taking on Botkins in the District Semifinal at 7 pm.  Tickets can be purchased at  Select Girls Soccer as the sport.  When you’re trying to find the game, we’re Division III, Region 12, Southwest 4.  Come out and support the Lady Spartans against Botkins!

November is "Explore the Warren County Career Center" month!  Counselors from Warren County Career Center (WCCC) will be coming to WHS on November 5th to speak to all the sophomores about program opportunities offered at the WCCC for their junior and senior year.

At the Warren County Career Center, there are many quality Career-Technical programs that will prepare students for an exciting career in a field of their choice. Some lead straight to work and others require post-secondary education in a college, university or technical school. Many of these programs will allow students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. WCCC offers 24 different programs to earn industry certifications, college credits and scholarships.

WHS sophomore students have the WCCC link and information in their Career G-Classroom. They are being asked to look over the programs prior to November 5th to have an idea of the programs that interest them. It is recommended that parents also research the programs with them to see if they may be interested in these opportunities for their Junior and Senior years.

On Friday, November 19th, ALL the current Sophomores will participate in the ‘Sophomore Explore’ half day (11:15- 1:45) visit date at the WCCC. Each student will be allowed to visit three programs on the main campus. If they would like to visit a program at the Green Tree campus they are still able to schedule one program at the main campus as well. This allows for travel time between campuses.

The application to apply at WCCC for the 2022-23 school year will open in Early December. It is recommended to APPLY EARLY, as programs do fill up quickly.

Manufacturing Power Lunch at WHS 
October is Manufacturing Month!  To help the students celebrate and learn about modern manufacturing WHS held a power lunch on October 8th.  The goal was to inspire the next generation of the many opportunities within the manufacturing field from the ground floor up. Areas of engineering and design, robotics, CNC technology, management, computer assemblers, IT, and material analyst are only a few of the careers within the manufacturing cluster. All fields working together to process materials into products.
Thank you to DRMA-Dayton Regions Manufacturers Association, HI-TEK Manufacturing, Henny Penny Manufacturing, Elite Welding, Cornerstone Research Group, and Sinclair Community College coming out to WHS and interacting with our students. By promoting this career exploration and allowing questions and shared information, the students gained valuable knowledge about so many different career fields needed to make one manufacturing company run efficiently. Sinclair Community College representative spoke to the seniors as well to educate them about Short Term Certificates, Associate Degrees, and the Articulated Agreements they offer to move on to other four year colleges to earn a Bachelor’s Degree with the possibility of their education being paid for by companies. The freshman class was also able to interact with a live zoom with Cornerstone Research Group. Thank you to everyone that made this event a success.
Students interested in Pre-Apprenticeships available in the Warren County area can reach out to the Warren County Workforce Initiative or to learn more about all the opportunities that exist within our area.
