Over the past six years, the Oberlin Preying Manti have started to build and focus their program. Between 2013-2018, the Manti have been to Nationals three times (2013, 2016 and 2018). In 2013, the Manti had a mixed showing in the regular season, but had a strong showing at sectionals and regionals where, aided by handlers Becca Kahn Bloch and Kayla Emrick, and cutters Ally Fulton and Sharon Cross, they did not lose a game. In the past two years, specifically, the Manti have evolved from a scrappy and athletic, but somewhat chaotic, style of play to a more organized and disciplined approach. Captain Abby Cheng’s (’16-’17, ’17-’18) drive and extremely adept organization skills have provided the team the push it needed to dominate the Ohio Valley section and region this spring. Her fierce love and passion for the game, combined with co-captain Emma March’s (’17-’18) ability to lead by example on and off the field and finding a dedicated coach in alum Ally Fulton, have pushed the team towards a higher ultimate IQ and their strongest post-season in years.
