Football- So far the Varsity football team has a record of 5 wins- 5 losses. The boys are shooting for a better overall record. Our team is planning to win the Hatchet on the 11-2-12. On Friday night our boys did a good job they beat Ravenswood to 17-16. We got the Hatchet back finally. Good job Ripley Varsity.
“We’re going to win because I’m Andy Mellert and Andy Mellert does not lie,” senior Andy Mellert said.
Volleyball -The girls’ volleyball team has won 10 games, so they have won 10-27. They have tied three of their games. The team has become a better stronger team as they learned to work together. The only senior on the team is Lyndsay Anthony; it’s her last year playing volleyball. Good year volleyball team.
“Hustle and heart set us apart,” sophomore Katie Stover said.
Girls’ Soccer- Our Lady Vikes finish the year off with winning three games this season, one against Point Pleasant. They got to play sectionals against South Charleston that is one of the games they have won. The girls won one of their conference games which also were against South Charleston.

“Even if the team is down we play like score board is 0-0,” sophomore Brooke Randolph said.
Boys’ Soccer- The boys have won two games against Ravenswood and the other game against Pike View. The boys tied against Riverside. The boys finish their season off with two wins this season. Boys’ soccer has done a good job this year.
