Summer is (almost) over, Summit County. It’s time for fall sports season.

For the first time in several years, there are hardly any shake-ups over at the Summit High School athletics department. John Shirkey returns for his second season as head coach for the varsity football team, while veterans Heather Quarantillo (cross-country) and Tommy Gogolen (soccer) are again at the helm of their varsity programs. Karl Barth plans on leading his girls rugby squad to an unbelievable 10th-straight state championship — that would be a decade of domination on the pitch — and Gary Sorenson is already hitting the links with the boy’s golf team. Annie Hettinger takes over as new coach for the girl’s volleyball team, but she’s hardly new to the sport and program.

Besides Hettinger, just about the only change is at the very top: Longtime athletic director Amy Raymond is stepping back into the classroom to make way for new AD Matt Erholtz. But enough with staff changes and introductions — on to the schedules.

Note: All times are for varsity games only. For complete schedules, including JV and freshman games, see the athletics tab at
