Matt Sexton has been the “voice of the Wildcats” since his debut as a Freshman in 1993.
In my estimation Matt would have announced over;
225 Varsity football games
1000 Basketball games
20+ wrestling tournaments
Matt does this with the professionalism rarely seen at the high school level. He prepares and executes night after night with a skill in which I am envious.
Even though we will miss his “Brayden Sipple for threeeeeeeee,” we wish him well as he pursues his broadcasting goals.
I am biased, but I truly believe he is the best high school announcer in the State. -Coach Pennix

PLAY MORE THAN ONE SPORT
Multi - Sport Benefits
The athletic department and administration at Blanchester Local Schools promote playing as many OHSAA school sponsored sports as possible. The benefits of being a diverse athlete far out weight the potential benefits of specialization.
The benefits of multiple-sport participation include better leadership and teamwork skills from cross-training, reduced risk of burnout in one sport, a variety of experiences from involvement with different sports and teams, reduced risk of overuse injuries in one sport and exposure to a variety of coaching styles.
"Coaches recognize competitiveness in players who play multiple sports"
