Moments after emerging from the pool Jan. 24 after the girls 50-yard freestyle "A" final during the Chagrin Valley Conference meet, the sense of relief was clear from Kayla Korenowski. The Kenston senior walked past Bombers coach Amanda Boswell and simply said, "Finally."
The league breakthrough for which Korenowski had long been seeking was finally realized, and perhaps there's one more breakthrough on the horizon.
Korenowski won her first career CVC title in 50 free with a time of 25.37 seconds. Counting this final league meet, in her career in individual events and on relays the longtime Kenston sprint free and backstroke standout had placed second eight times at CVC, including each of the last two years in 50 free.

The Kenston varsity basketball season is in full swing. The team started their CVC schedule with a big win over rival Chagrin Falls on Saturday, December 13, with a score of 52-45. The Bombers have a 2-1 record with a win over a strong Euclid team and a very close loss to a top 25 Brush basketball squad. As we all know this is the last year Kenston will be in the CVC (Chagrin Valley Conference) so it's a big deal that we leave with a conference championship. Senior basketball player Luke Winovich said, "It was a great feeling to beat Chagrin my senior year and we hope to keep this momentum going." The boy's face a good Hawken team Tuesday night at home and plan on coming out with a W.
Many people in our community know the basics about the wrestling tournament our school hosts each year during winter break. However, many people do not know how how historic and long-running the tournament actually is. With the historic milestone of the 50th annual Kenston Invitational Wrestling Tournament fast approaching, I interviewed wrestling coach, Mr. Murphy, with a couple questions in regards to one of the longest running wrestling tournaments in America. Here’s what he had to say:
The 2015 lacrosse season is approaching soon. Workouts are at the training grounds for a one week trial. There are many opportunities for winter lacrosse like Force and Burning River. If you want to improve your lacrosse skills with stick handling and footwork then these leagues are great opportunities to participate in. The team store is open so you can buy any of your lacrosse spirit wear. If you haven't signed up for the team website then sign up for that. Winter workouts will be starting in late January and tryouts are in the month of February. This season will be a good one. Brandon Wenger said, "I can't wait for this lacrosse season to start, it is going to be a good one."
This Friday at our house at 7:30 the Lady Bombers Basketball Team will be fighting a battle against the Chagrin Tigers. This is the last year our girls will see Chagrin on the court. It's the biggest game of the year and always a close one and the girls are ready to play. Every practice these girls have been working very hard for three weeks and have been waiting all year for this game to come.
