Men’s Soccer

Although the varsity men’s soccer match against Euclid was postponed a day due to weather, that did not stop the Raiders from crushing them 12-0 Thursday. Junior Josh Reape had three goals and junior Tivaughn Robinson and senior Dominic Cirillo both had two as Shaker cruised to the victory.  Shaker’s next opponent is Mentor on Tuesday, where they will be playing away. 

Field Hockey

The Shaker field hockey team defeated Hawken on the road 3-0 on Wednesday. Senior Lora Clarke, junior Eliza Bennett, and junior Hilary Shakelton all scored as the Raiders shut out Hawken. The field hockey team’s next game is away on Thursday, where they will face Theodore Roosevelt.

Women’s Soccer

The women’s soccer team finished off a strong week Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Brecksville, in which senior Kenzie Trotter scored Shaker’s lone goal. On Wednesday, the Raiders coasted to a shutout win 6-0 against Euclid, and on Thursday they beat Eastlake North 9-1 . They will look to continue their good run this week as they play Medina on Wednesday at home.


The varsity football team got the job done in two overtimes against Garfield Heights in the Friday twilight game. With Shaker down 10-7, Carson Fowler hit a clutch field goal to send the game to overtime tied at ten. After a scoreless first overtime, senior Victor Ford broke the tie with his second touchdown of the game, giving the Raiders the win. After getting out to a 1-0 start, the Raiders’ next opponent is Benedictine this Friday on the road.
