        Autumn Schmidt, a senior at Lake, signed her official letter of intent to golf at Ohio Dominican College in Columbus. Schmidt averaged 44.3 strokes in Northern Buckeye Conference play this year to finish as a first team all-league selection along with teammate Kimmy Zoltani (49.5). The Flyers were league runner-up.

        Ohio Dominican is coached by Chris Deibel, who in 15 years heading up the men’s and women’s programs has coached 22 individual champions, three NAIA All-Americans, 22 all-conference selections, eight GCAA All-Region student-athletes and led his teams to 21 team championships, three regional appearances and three national championship appearances.

       

        In four different leagues, the Eastern Maumee Bay Community saw four different prep volleyball teams contending for a championship.

        When all was said and done, only the two Oregon schools, Clay and Cardinal Stritch, came away with a league titles and both had to share. The Eagles shared the Three Rivers Athletic Conference championship with Notre Dame and St. Ursula and the Cardinals shared the Toledo Area Athletic Conference title with Toledo Christian.

        It’s quite an accomplishment for first-year Clay coach Carrie Wagoner, and her team did it with just three seniors — 5-foot-8 right side middle hitter/setter Madison Hornyak, 5-4 defensive specialist Kelsey Garcia and 5-9 right side setter Madi Vriezelaar.

        The Eagles finished the regular season barely over .500 at 13-12, but were 6-1 in the TRAC. The Eagles were young, but so was St. Ursula. Wagoner is this year’s Alan Miller Jewelers Coach of the Year and she already has her focus set on next year.

        Eastwood wrestling returns nine letter winners from a team that went 7-3 in dual meets last year, including 6-1 in Northern Buckeye Conference duals.

        The Eagles’ only league loss was to Division III state champion Genoa, and 12th-year coach Joe Wyant believes his team can fare well again in the conference.

        “We are young but would like to compete for the top half,” Wyant said. “We’re very excited to compete.”

        The Eagles proved it Tuesday night, losing to defending Division III state champion Genoa by only three points, 37-34.
