 Concluding Red-Out Week for the American Heart Association, on Feb. 5 the boys’ basketball team defeated rival Stow High School, ending with a score of 59-47. Hudson dominated and shot well throughout the whole game.  In the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs were in trouble, with the Hudson Explorers leading a 15-point advantage and finishing with a 12-point victory over the rival team.  Key players were seniors Zack Meder and Isaac McGillis, and junior Spencer McClure, each sending the Explorers to victory and continuing their record of 13-4.


The boys’ hockey team had a suspenseful game against Shaker Heights on Feb. 6.  The Explorers were in danger, with Shaker leading the majority of the game. The Raiders scored one goal in the first half of the game and in the third period with one minute left, until junior Max Cole scored two goals within the last three minutes of the game. This led to overtime with no goals, ending in a tied game of 2-2.


Unfortunately, the girls’ basketball team had a tough loss against the Twinsburg Tigers on Feb. 6. Emmy Klemencic led Hudson’s team, scoring 8 points, but the girls were defeated by the Tigers, 31-48.


The JV swimmers had an impressive weekend at the JV invitational on Feb. 6. Hudson’s team placed in the top eight for every event, competing against swimmers from all around Ohio.  Varsity will take on Sectionals this upcoming weekend.
