Got Game Greater Cincy

1/15/2009

MILES SIMPSON

FOOTBALL — SIMON KENTON

Despite coming up short in the Kentucky Class 6A championships, the
junior back enjoyed one of the best individual seasons in school
history. Simpson spearheaded an offensive attack that
averaged 265 rushing yards a game. He churned out
2,309 yards and reached pay dirt 41 times. He
helped the Pioneers go 10-4 before falling to
Trinity, 48-0, in the title game. He finished
the season with 264 points, good
for tenth all-time in the state.

DANIELLE JANSEN

GIRLS' SWIMMING — MASON

Jansen had her fingerprints all over the Comets' successful 2007-08
season. The junior captured the state title in the 200 freestyle as a
sophomore, finishing with a time of 1:48.52, and was state runner-up in
the 100 freestyle (50.98). Jensen also competed in the 50 freestyle and
was an integral member of the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relay
teams. She was named Co-Swimmer of the Year in the Greater Miami
Conference and The Cincinnati Enquirer Division I Swimmer of the Year.

KATIE ALLEN

GIRLS' BASKETBALL — HIGHLANDS

As a sophomore, Allen led Highlands with 11 points, five assists and three
steals per game. She was named to The Cincinnati Enquirer All-Star first
team and returns as the offensive catalyst of the area's top-ranked
girls' team. She topped the 1,000-point plateau last year and remained
hot at the start of the winter. She nearly outscored the entire Holy
Cross team, tallying 19 points in a 64-19 win on Dec. 8. She followed that
up with a 24-point-performance in a 71-59 victory over Scott on Dec. 11.

TIM O'CONNOR

FOOTBALL — ELDER

Even in defeat, O'Connor had a record-setting
performance. In Elder's 28-20 loss in the
Division I championship, the junior receiver set
the state finals record for receptions with 15
and tied the mark for most receiving touchdowns
with two. He hauled in a 9-yard score
late in the first half and then added a 2-
yard TD reception to pull Elder within
eight later in the contest. He finished
with 184 receiving yards.
