Lakota East Class of 2004: Soccer
Parrissa is the greatest Lakota soccer scorer of all time having totaled 64 career goals and 52 career assists, both numbers unmatched by the approximately 500 soccer players, boys and girls combined, who have ever worn a Lakota uniform.
Her 25 goals and 15 assists in her senior season won her national acclaim leading to her selection to the 2003 All American Team as determined by the national Soccer Coaches Association of America.
In that same year she was selected as the GMC Player of the Year, the Cincinnati Player of the Year, and to the All State First Team.
A four year varsity starter for the Thunderhawks, she was named to two All GMC First Teams and three All GMC Teams total.
Her personal success also translated into team success. She led Lakota East to GMC co-championships as both a sophomore and a senior. She was the scoring leader on both of thse teams as well as team captain and MVP of the latter team.
Lakota East Class of 2000: Soccer
Casey routinely controlled games from his midfield position on the soccer field enabling the Hawks to win the GMC, District, and the Regional Championships in 1999. This was the first Lakota team to ever reach a State final four, an advancement that has never been exceeded by a Lakota boy's team.
Among his many individual honors were All State First Team and Butler County Player of the Year in 1999. In that same year he finished 2nd in the voting for Cincinnati Metro Player of the Year.
He was recognized as one of the best players in the GMC, first by his selection to the All League Second Team as a sophomore, followed by two selections to the All GMC First Team.
A decade after he last played for Lakota East his school single season and career assist records still stand as evidence of his leadership on the field and uncommon skill as a playmaker.
Lakota East Class of 2004: Wrestling, Football
Tony, whether on the wrestling mat or the gridiron, was truly a man among boys.
He won the State heavyweight wrestling Championship in 2004 dispatching his hapless finals opponent in a mere minute and twenty-nine seconds. His 2004 appearance at the State meet was his third. He had previously placed 5th and 3rd in this meet.
Following the 2004 State tournament he went on to win the National Senior Heavy Weight Championship defeating five of the best wrestlers the country had to offer.
For four years he ruled the GMC heavyweight division winning the championship as a freshman, taking runner-up honors in his sophomore year, and then adding two more championships in his final two seasons.
In all four years he was a placer in both the Sectional and District wrestling tournaments, a rare feat. Five of these eight placements resulted in gold medals; three Sectional gold medals, and two District gold medals.
A Lakota district record, 91 of his 130 wins were by pins for an incredible 70% pin rate.
He was a punishing runner and blocker on the football field. A two year starter, he was virtually unstoppable in short yardage situations where he scored 18 career TD's and led and way as other runners followed him into the end zone for many more.
Lakota West Class of 1999: Football, Basketball
Matt was selected as an All Ohio First Team linebacker in 1998. Only the third Lakota defensive player ever so honored.
After the passage of 12 seasons his single game, single season, and career tackling records (both solo and total) at Lakota West still stand. These marks also remain unmatched within the Lakota district.
His recognition within the GMC consisted of an All League First Team selection in his senior year following a Second Team selection as a junior.
In Lakota West's first football season he was on the field for nearly every play, a full back when the Firebirds had the ball and a linebacker when they didn't. He was an acknowledged team leader for these fledgling Firebirds, having been selected as a team captain for both his junior and senior seasons.
Although his primary sport was football, he also lettered in basketball. His West record for most consecutive basketball field goals made, nine, stood for nine years.
Lakota and Lakota East: Track and Cross Country Coach
Jason coached two State championship teams and is the only Lakota coach to have two State championships to his credit. His 1983 boys cross country team brought home the district's first State championship, and his 1984 girls cross country team captured the district's first State championship in girls sports.
He also coached athletes who won nine State individual championships, a number unmatched by any other Lakota coach. These individual championship winners were in both boys and girls cross country, and boys and girls track and field.
His teams won conference championships for both boys and girls, in both cross country and track and field, at both Lakota and Lakota East, in both the Mid Miami League and the Greater Miami Conference. The first came in girls cross country in the Mid Miami League in 1978 and ending with girls cross country in the GMC in 2002. these championships were won over four decades (the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's). The teams he coaches brought home the remarkable total of 32 Conference championships, a total unlikely to ever be matched.
Long recognized for his achievements by his coaching peers, his previous honors have included his being inducted into the Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches Hall of Fame, Class of 1997. He's achieved inumerable Coach of the Year honors bestowed at the league, county, and state levels.
He coached for 30 years plus one season. In that span he coached or was co-coach for 120 teams, the first being freshman football in his first year at Lakota. Considering the squad sizes of the sports coached he has in all probability coached more Lakota athletes than anyone in district history.
Lakota West Class of 2004: Softball
Keir was the first Lakota softball player to be twice selected All State First Team and is still one of only three. There have been just eight other single sport double All State First Team honorees' from among the thousands of athletes who have represented our schools.

Her seven no hitters were the most by a Lakota pitcher at the time of her graduation. Amoung them was a seven inning perfect game. Another came in a District championship game against one of the best hitting teams in southwest Ohio.
A gifted all around player, she was often the lead-off hitter and played first base when not on the pitching rubber.

Mike won team MVP honors in back-to-back seasons, in both football and basketball, in the 1967-68 school-year. He was selected as All Conference in the Mid Miami League (MML) in both of these seasons.
