Announcements and Important Events
Here is your weekly update on our Clinton Community Schools'
It was a homecoming success for the Clinton Redskins on Friday as they defeated Britton-Deerfield 57-18 in front of an energetic home crowd! The team built an impressive 36-6 lead at halftime and never looked back. The team netted over 500 yards of total offense behind Noah DeShano's four touchdowns and Brayden Randolph's 100 yards on the ground. Dylan Settles had a phenomenal overall performance as well as he passed for over 50 yards, rushed for over 70, had over 30 yards in punt returns, and scored on a 42-yard fumble recovery on defense. At 6-0, Clinton has clinched a playoff berth for the 8th straight season!
The team can also clinch at least a share of the TCC Championship with a win on Friday against Whiteford at home. Whiteford enters this game with a 3-0 conference record having won the last three meetings against the Redskins. It is going to be intense this Friday night!
The JV team battled the freshmen team of Class A Allen Park on Thursday and came away with a resounding 60-0 victory. Everything was clicking for the Redskins as they will put their undefeated record on the line on Thursday at Whiteford.
The Middle School teams were also victorious this weekend! The 7th grade team handled BD in shutout fashion while the 8th graders beat Michigan Collegiate in a rout.
All good things come to an end and when the big news of the week is that the team actually lost a game, you know you've done something right. Clinton Soccer defeated Grass Lake on Monday to extend their winning streak to 9 games, but fell short to Brooklyn Columbia Central 2-0 on Thursday to see the streak snapped. The best news though? The season isn't over! The team finished in 3rd place in the ISL East Division and will travel to play the #3 seed in the West Division, Hillsdale, today at 5pm. Then, the MHSAA Tournament begins on Thursday as the Redskins will take on Ann Arbor Greenhills at 4:30pm at Greenhills.
The Clinton Varsity Volleyball team hosted Adrian Madison last Thursday and fell in straight sets to the perennial league champion. Though the team struggled, they will have another chance to redeem themselves Tuesday night when they welcome Britton-Deerfield to town for a Varsity Doubleheader. Then, the team goes to Whiteford for another TCC showdown on Thursday. They will also host their Cancer Awareness game on October 17!
The JV team also dropped their TCC contest to Adrian Madison last week and then travelled to Lincoln for an invite on Saturday. The team faced some tough Class A & B competition that included Ann Arbor Pioneer, Pinckney, Ann Arbor Huron, and Tecumseh. The team went 0-2-2 on the day. They'll battle Whiteford on Thursday.
It was the big Hudson Booster Invitational this past weekend and our Cross Country runners at all levels performed very well. Out of 22 Division 2 and 3 men's teams participating, the Clinton Boys finished in 5th with Gabe Nelson leading the way with a 25th place finish overall of 146 runners. The girls team finished 11th out of 22 with Alissa King crossing the line first for Clinton in 23rd place out of 151 runners. The team will travel to Adrian today for the Madison Invite and then back to Gerber Hill for counties on Saturday.
Perhaps the biggest news of the weekend at Hudson was the performance of the Clinton Girls Middle School team. Of 23 participating teams, Clinton took 1st in the Girls Middle School division in dominating fashion! The 2nd place team, Adrian, were a full 69 points behind our Redskins. Samantha Coots led the way with a 3rd place finish out of 259 runners! Allison Bowles finished 12th, Zoey Sierer 14th, Maliah Piatt 23rd, and Summer Chandler in 30th to round out the scoring for Clinton. The Boys Middle School team did well too. They finished in 6th place of 26 teams led by Max Hampel's 5th place finish out of 256 runners! The Middle School teams will compete at the Sand Creek Invite on Thursday and at counties on Saturday.
