In the playoffs, the boys beat Wickliffe, Bedford, and Gilmour to become District Champs. They defeated Louisville St. Thomas Aquinas at the Canton Memorial Fieldhouse, which led to an off-shooting night in the Elite 8 vs. State Ranked Warren LaBrae. The girls cruised to a district championship and also made it to the Elite 8, before falling to Orrville.[citation needed]

The boys soccer team has made a name for themselves after years of winning the Chagrin Valley Conference Metro Division.[9] In the 2014-15 season the bison, led by Head Scout Josh Lowe, surpassed Kirtland to win their first Division 3 District Championship in 30 years. [10]
