Mathias Powell, Elizabeth Sims top runners in Apollo Conference

Mathias Powell and Elizabeth Sims couldn't be more different. Powell is the seasoned veteran for the Mahomet-Seymour boys' cross-country team. Sims is the young, bright-eyed freshman for the girls' cross-country team.

But they do have one thing in common: They're the best runners in the Apollo Conference.


M-S’ senior-laden soccer squad focuses on one game at a time

"Freshmen want to play, sophomores want to score, juniors want to start, but seniors want to win." — John Beilein.

The Michigan University men's basketball head coach's phrase couldn't be more applicable to Jeremy Davis' Mahomet-Seymour boys' soccer team. Regional play starts Tuesday at Champaign Centennial, and his senior-laden squad has completely disregarded individual accolades.


The best of the best: M-S recognizes three former athletes in second Hall of Fame class

Mahomet has seen its fair share of all-stars, but none rise above the ranks quite like this year's Hall of Fame athletes. Craig Buchanan, Sharon (Farley) Goff and Rob Porter are all household names in Mahomet and for good reason.


Bulldogs slip away from playoff hopes after a heartbreaking homecoming loss

MAHOMET — Mahomet-Seymour watched its playoff hopes slip away as Effingham rolled the Bulldogs 64-28 on Friday.

It was a disappointing homecoming as Effingham blitzed M-S with a 28-0 run and cruised to its fourth straight win.


Senior Brisa McGrath providing key leadership for M-S' girls' cross-country

Ever since seventh grade, Brisa McGrath knew that cross-country and track were the sports for her.

McGrath never had to question if she should play soccer or run cross-country — a decision that many of her fellow junior high classmates struggled with.

But McGrath didn't even love running. It had to grow on her.


M-S boys' soccer victorious over Champaign Central and Charleston

Outstanding performances from Ethan Mansfield and Austin Carr helped Mahomet-Seymour boys' soccer team notch two huge victories.

The 2-1 victory over Charleston was key for the Bulldogs' Apollo Conference championship hopes. Then, the Bulldogs pulled off their biggest win of the season, beating archrival Champaign Central 3-1 on Saturday.

 


Bulldogs looking for a win against Effingham after a tough loss to Mattoon

MATTOON — Mahomet-Seymour knows all about tough football losses. Against Mascoutah, it was a missed extra point and a fumbled snap on a potential game-winning field goal that ripped a win out of the Bulldogs' grasp.


M-S boys' soccer's Corey Cebulski credits fallen mentor for leading the way to his success

Corey Cebulski will be the first to admit it: He wasn't a good goalkeeper as a freshman.

"I was horrible," Cebulski said gravely. "I was absolutely terrible."

A couple years later, Cebulski has transformed into one of the top keepers in the area, and he has one person to thank: Jacob Hamilton.


Mahomet-Seymour volleyball's Josie Hess settling well into new role

Josie Hess wasn't supposed to play libero. The sophomore was an outside hitter, but when senior Hannah Buzicky unexpectedly left the team right before the season started, Hess slid into the important position.

Hess was originally slated to play as an outside hitter, but after 18 matches at libero, Hess looks like she's been playing the position her whole life.


M-S boys' soccer picks up a series of wins

Mahomet-Seymour boys' soccer is getting hot at the right time. M-S is 6-1-1 in its last eight matches, and Austin Carr has been absolutely on fire, notching seven goals over the past four matches.
