A message from Mr. Crowe, Principal: MHS Students and Families, Recently at our football games we have had multiple students in possession of bottles of baby powder. Tossing baby powder is prohibited at all school events including football games. This has been getting on clothes, food and has negatively impacted the experience for numerous guests. These bottles will be confiscated and students may be removed from the stadium and face disciplinary consequences. Thank you in advance for ensuring all guests have a positive and enjoyable experience at our events. Respectfully, Jason Crowe Principal Mentor High School

The season ended for the Mentor Cardinals as Pickerington Central won the state title 56-28. The Cards end a fabulous season at 13-2 including a 12 game winning streak! Although it wasn't meant to be for the Cards, this group had an amazing chemistry that we all watched develop during the season. Congrats to all involved as you all did an outstanding job to entertain and make us proud as Cardinal fans. The championship game started on a solid note when the Cards scored twice to take the lead 14-7. Back and forth scoring continued leading to a 21-21 tie at halftime. The second half was the difference as Pickerington scored often pulling away the title championship opportunity from the Cards. Look for the football team to remain a powerhouse in NE Ohio for years to come. The foundation is there for sustained success. #onceacard

The Mentor Cardinals continued their 2017 amazing run by defeating the Olentangy Liberty Patriots 27-21 in the state semi-final game. Next stop ...Canton for the state championship game on Friday, December 1st at 8:00 pm! The Cards fell behind 6-0 halfway through the 1st quarter. But, before the quarter ended, they had taken the lead 7-6 on a Tadas Tatarunas to Matt Hartmann 23 yard TD reception. This was the same score leading into halftime as both teams didn't put up any points in the 2nd quarter. Mentor scored first in the second half on a Chris Edmond 2 yard run for which Olentangy answered with their own TD to knot the score at 14. The Cards found enough time to take the lead 21-14 before the 3rd quarter ended with a Tatarunas 3 yard TD run. In the final quarter, Mentor scored again to give the Cards a semi-comfortable 27-14 lead with only 5:40 to go in the game. Olentangy hadn't given up and scored another TD with only 3:06 left in the game. The Cards gave Olentangy one more drive but the defense held fast as the Cards came away with the 27-21 nail-biter victory. The state final game will be next Friday, December 1st at 8:00 pm in Canton. Hopefully you can join us to watch this amazing group of Cardinals play for the Division 1 state championship!

Wow! The Mentor Cardinals put together a solid second half and came away with an exciting Regional Final victory 23-21 in their rematch against the St. Ignatius Wildcats. Earlier this year, the Wildcats beat the Cards in a 41-31 victory at the JTO. Tonight was a different result. Mentor started the scoring with an Elijah McDougal 36 yard TD run. Mentor held this lead for 4:08 of game time starting the bookend scoring lead. After 2 Wildcat scores, Mentor responded with another McDougal TD run for 18 yards. St. Ignatius scored next giving the Wildcats a 21-14 lead with 3:10 left in the 3rd quarter. Tada Tatarunas next hit Luke Floria for a 32 yard score but the extra point was no good leaving the Wildcats ahead 21-20 with only 7:45 left in the game. Mentor was able to get the ball back for their final possession which resulted in a Conor McIntosh 27 yard field goal with only 37 second left in the game!!! Add the 37 seconds to lead at the end of the game plus the 4:08 leading at the beginning of the game and the Cards only led for 4:45 of 48 minutes in clock time. Mentor (12-1) will play Olentangy Liberty (11-2) next Friday at a site to be announced shortly. Stay tuned and come join us for the state semi-final game on Friday, November 24th. GO CARDS!

The Mentor Cardinals continued their playoff quest with a joyful victory over the St. Edward's Eagles 21-13. The win moves them to the Regional Final game next week against the St. Ignatius Wildcats. The Cardinals (11-1) didn't score much in this game as it was the defense who came up big contributing the win. Down 10-0 after the first quarter, the Card came back to score two TD's in the second quarter. Elijah McDougal ran an 8 yard score followed by a Tadas Tatarunas pass to Logan Shea for a 13 yard TD. The 3rd quarter saw no scoring from either team leading to a final score by the Cards on a Chris Edmond score of 2 yards. The Mentor defense held the Eagles to only 13 points in the game. But the telltale stat was the Cardinal defense holding St. Ed's to 2-13 on 3rd down attempts. In a game where Mentor was held to only half the normal points they score on offense, the defense deserves the shout out for their outstanding effort!!! Join us next week for a rematch against the St. Ignatius Wildcats (12-0) on Friday, November 17th at a site to be determined. The Wildcats beat the Cards for their only loss this season 41-31 on September 1st. GO CARDS!
