Owens Community College will honor the legacy of former Express Director of Athletics Michael Rickard who passed away unexpectedly in December 2010 by hosting a tribute ceremony in his honor as part of a men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader against Edison State Community College on Wednesday, Feb. 16.

The tribute ceremony for Michael Rickard will begin at the conclusion of the Express women’s basketball game against Edison State at approximately 7 p.m. in the College’s Student Health and Activities Center on the Toledo-area Campus. Owens is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.

The Owens women’s basketball game will start at 5:30 p.m. followed by the Express men’s basketball contest against Edison State at 7:30 p.m. Admission to all home games is free.

“Michael Rickard will be warmly remembered for his dedication and passion to Owens Community College Express athletics,” said Chris Giordano, Owens Dean of Student Life. “His welcoming smile was part of his positive outlook on life and college athletics.  Michael touched thousands of lives over his three decades at Owens Community College and we are proud and honored to recognize him through a lasting tribute ceremony in his name.”

Wrestling moms promote prostate cancer fundraiser

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men.
The estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2010 is about 217,713 new cases will be diagnosed and about 32,050 men will die from prostate cancer. About one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer accounts for approximately 11 percent of cancer-related deaths in men.
Seeing those statistics, a group of Eastwood High School “wrestling moms” looked at their own sons and the coaching staff, and decided that because wrestling is a male-dominated sport, they saw the potential in holding a fundraiser to raise awareness for prostate cancer at the 10-team Claire Simpson Eastwood Duals on February 5.
The “Pin to Win Against Cancer” fundraiser will include the selling of t-shirts, a silent auction, a bake sale and possibly sticker sale, multiple 50/50 raffles throughout the day, and the sale of paper “pins” to put on the team’s memory wall. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.
