Panther achievements in October
October was an eventful and exciting time for staff and students at Darby.
The Darby Football team finished their season off strong by winning all of their games in October, beating Thomas Worthington 45-14, Worthington Kilbourne 17-3, Delaware Hayes 35-0, and Dublin Scioto 22-3, earning them a spot in the playoffs.
Great job to the students who were nominated for student of the month, keep on persevering and leaving a legacy at Darby.
Both boys and girls soccer became district champions, with the boys earning their first district championship in school history. The boys finished their regular season with a record of 6-4-6, and the girls finished with a record of 12-4-3.
The marching band finished an undefeated season on Saturday the 21st at New Philadelphia, and the color guard scored a 282, the highest they have scored in a decade. They continued their success by scoring all perfect scores at the state competition.
Freshman Zachary Ciriaco, who is a member of the marching band, was very excited for these incredible scores.
“It has been really fun, I have grown to love my band mates and they’ve become like family,” Ciriaco said, “We had a great season and I can’t wait to come back next year.”
The boys cross country team finished 6th out of 16 in their district race at Darby on the 21st. Earlier in the month, Senior Dylan Newport made it onto the top ten wall with an amazing time of 16:10 on the 7th, during the annual Darby Dash. Also at the district race, the girls cross country team placed 4th out of 16 and sophomore Daniella Santos ran an astounding 18:20.58, winning the race for Darby and becoming the girls cross country district champion.
Congratulations to all of the students and staff who made great achievements this month at Darby.
