As another calendar year calls it quits, here’s a little look at what’s happening this winter in the Southwest Ohio Conference. 

Northwest (4-4, 3-0) and Mount Healthy (3-6, 2-0) are the last two unbeaten boys basketball teams (in conference play). The Owls visit Northwest on Jan. 5 in a very important league showdown. 

For the Knights, James Adleta (12.0), Kaleb Williams (11.4) and Isaiah Loveless (10.3) are all averaging in double figures scoring. Mount Healthy’s been led by Kaleb Taylor (14.0) and Brandon Lanier (11.8). 

Landon Angel, of Ross, leads the SWOC in scoring (21.0) and ranks second in rebounds (7.5). Ross is another team still very much in the conference hunt at 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the league. 

The girls basketball race couldn’t be any closer. Edgewood, at 5-4 overall and 3-0 in the conference, sits at the top right now, with Little Miami (7-3, 3-1), Talawanda (5-2, 2-1), Northwest (4-4, 2-1) and Mount Healthy (5-4, 1-2) all lurking nearby. 

Talawanda's Addie Brown leads the league in scoring per game (21.7). Northwest's Sante Williams (13.8), Little Miami's Sydney Kuritar (12.2), Mount Healthy's Gabrielle Barnett (11.6) and Edgewood's Cierra Lipps (11.0) each lead their respective teams in scoring.

Even though Edgewood finished the regular season 8-2 and won the outright Southwest Ohio Conference football title for the second season in a row, the Cougars were left out of the Division II playoffs after the OHSAA released the points early Sunday morning.

Harrison is the only SWOC team to make the playoffs this season. The Wildcats took the No. 8 seed in Division II, Region 8 and open up at No. 1 La Salle on Friday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m.  

The only football team yet to lose a conference game this season in the SWOC is Edgewood, meaning the Cougars have already clinched a share of the conference title heading into the regular-season finale this Friday at Mount Healthy. 

An Edgewood win would clinch the Cougars' second consecutive outright conference title and likely a spot in the Division II, Region 8 playoffs.
