Posted on 04/24/2024
Mason Creek Middle School’s baseball team and Fairplay Middle School’s girls and boys soccer teams recently won the Douglas County Championships in their respective sports.

Mason Creek’s baseball team finished the season with a 9-1 record and defeated Fairplay in the title game.

Mason Creek's Finnley Vandegraft was named County MVP and was one of three Wolves named All-Conference along with Ira DeBorde and Scott Segal.

“I am very proud of the Mason Creek baseball team for winning the county championship,” Coach Daniel Ewing said. “This was the school's first baseball championship so it meant the world to the team. A lot of the eighth graders had been playing on the baseball team since they were in sixth grade, so it was a long time coming for them to win it all. It’s a great feeling to put in the hours and days of work and practice and to be able to see the fruits of our labor. Go Wolves!”

Fairplay’s girls defeated Chapel Hill in the title game and finished the season at 9-0. Fairplay’s boys beat Turner in the championship and finished at 8-0-1.

In the girls championship game, seventh-grader Megan Nutter scored the only goal in the 1-0 victory. Coach Mackenna Dutcher said guidance and leadership from captains Caraline and Juliette also played big roles in the win.

“At halftime, the team came together to evaluate their performance and make necessary adjustments for a strong finish,” Dutcher said. “The positive atmosphere of support and motivation amongst the players contributed to the team's success, creating a sense of unity and camaraderie that extended beyond the game.”

Fairplay boys Coach Taylor Neufeld said the teams were evenly matched and “any win was definitely earned.”

“We came into the season with the following phrase on our soccer hoodies ‘no grass stains no glory, no bruises no story.’ After a long and hard fought season we ended up with the best story, County Champs!” Neufeld said.
