         Getting a new program off the ground doesn’t come without a few bumps in the road. Take Clay’s boys lacrosse team, for instance.

        Last year, the Eagles finished with a 2-11-2 record, “which was what we expected for being a first-year program,” according to coach Joe Kiss III.

        Clay entered this week’s games with a 3-4 record, and the Eagles are eligible this season to compete in the state tournament. They are in Division II, Region 5 with the likes of Central Catholic, Bowling Green, Southview, Northview, St. John’s Jesuit and Ottawa Hills.

        “You can see that our record shows improvement,” Kiss said, noting that the Eagles have already beaten teams that beat them handily last season.

 Siena Heights University women’s soccer coach Scott Oliver knew he had a good one when he signed Genoa senior Marissa Young.

        “First and foremost I think she is a great student and great kid,” Oliver said. “We obviously recognize her potential and her ability. She scores a lot of goals and had a lot of assists, and those types of playmakers are really hard to find. Those are probably the three attributes that we really like about her the most.”

        Young scored 20 goals and had 14 assists last fall on her way to becoming Northern Buckeye Conference and Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Co-Player of the Year. She was first team all-conference and second team All-Ohio.

        The team MVP, she led the Comets to a 10-6-1 season and then got to play in the district senior all-star game.

        Genoa senior golfer Reagan Guthrie had a breakout season last fall, and now she is reaping the rewards.

Guthrie will golf and attend college at Trine University, an NCAA Division III school in Angola, Indiana next fall.

As a senior, golfing for her grandfather and third-year Genoa girls coach Don Colyer, she improved her average by six strokes — from 50.7 strokes per nine holes to 44.6 and was a Northern Buckeye Conference first team selection.

She was also first team as a sophomore and second team as a junior and is a four-year letter winner.

 

abortion

The Ohio legislature has passed a bill that would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. In practice, that would make abortion illegal after six weeks.
