  • Fall Sports Update

    High School Athletics
    Following an exciting opening match Win over Open Door Christian School, Varsity Soccer is still looking to regain the form they hit last season. Following two closes against Cornerstone Christian and Independence, first year Head Coach, Drago Dumbovic, will go into next week looking for bounce back results against Lake Ridge Academy and Canton Central Catholic. Andrews Osborne will look to regain their home field advantage against LRA on Tuesday (5 PM) before heading down to Canton for another 5 PM kick-off on Thursday.
    It's been a busy start to the season for our Varsity Volleyball girls. Playing 7 matches over the first two weeks of the season, AOA Varsity stands at 3-4 on the year. Two straight dominant wins over St. Martin de Porres and Cornerstone Christian turned the other way when they met Hawken and Wickliffe this past week. Going into the weekend, Coach Larmar Hicks will have his girls ready to host Hearts for Jesus Christ on Monday following the Junior Varsity match at 5:30. JV stands at 3-3 on the year.
    Coming off two hotly contested matches this week that both ended in 3-2 defeats, AOA Women's Tennis (1-5) looks to find their stride next week when they travel to Lake Catholic High School for a match at 4:30 PM.
    Cross Country
    Andrews Osborne put on a stellar display at last week's Lawrence Invitational. AOA's girls were the stars of the meet, finishing 2nd overall. Leading this charge were standout performances from Tai Roberts (1st), Jane Hammond (4th), and Aubrey Welchans (5th). AOA boys finished 4th overall at the meet, headlined by Yiyou Zhou (24th overall)
    With only one match under their belt so far, Varsity Golf (0-1) gears up for a busy week next week. AOA will face up with St. John School (Tuesday), Lawrence School (Thursday), and Lake Ridge Academy (Friday). All matches will take place at Briardale Golf Course. Jackson Okumura and Paden Ikeda were the standout performers in the first match against Lake Ridge Academy.
    Middle School Athletics
    Three games into the season now, our Middle School boys have found the back of the net twice in each of their games, resulting in one tie and two losses. Our boys will hit the field again twice next week, hosting Cleveland Heights (Tuesday) and St. John School (Thursday). Both matches will begin at 4:15.
    Pushing out to a strong start to the season, Allie Royer and Iris Parker were named Andrews Osborne Academy's Athletes of the Week. As a team, AOA's girls now stand at 3-1 on the year and look to continue their success into next week when they travel to Community Christian School on Thursday for a 4:30 PM match.
    Following two big wins to begin the year, our Middle School girls had their first taste of defeat against Perry Middle School, dropping by a close score of 4-5-4. AOA will look to exact their revenge against Perry when they play host to the Pirates next Wednesday on our home course.

    Overwatch (6v6 best of 5 matches)-
    Mondays @5pm
    Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter in which two teams of six go head to head. Each player selects a “hero” from a roster of over 30 characters, each of which has unique skill sets and abilities that fit within a general team role: tank, damage, or support.  Players work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.

    Fortnite  (1v1, the player with most eliminations during a Duo match wins) -
    Fridays @5pm
    Fortnite Battle Royale is a competitive shooter between 100 players as they air-drop out of a moving “battle bus,” then fight to survive as the play area slowly shrinks, forcing people into combat. Players need to find all of their weapons and equipment on the map, since they don’t land with anything other than a pickaxe.
    Players aim to harvest building materials from trees, cars and other free-standing objects in order to make their own walls, ramps and platforms, earning a competitive advantage over their competitors.

  • Cross-Country Lend's a Helping Hand

    At AOA teaching our students about community is very important.  On Thursday, Sept. 6th our varsity and middle school cross country teams, led by Coach Lariccia and Hall, spent some time immersed in a community service project that they won't soon forget. The team made 'Blessing Bags' for 'Little Annie's Hope Train', a non-proft that focuses on helping the hungry and homeless. Blessing bags are gallon-sized Ziploc bags that contain a variety of items, such as toiletries, food items, and other essentials. By working together, the team made over 100 bags to help the cause.  The bags will be distributed to homeless camps, hunger centers, and soup kitchens at local churches. 
    For anyone interested in finding out more information about this great cause, please search on Facebook or Instgram for Little Annie's Hope Train.
