Shawn Contos, Penn State enjoy another wrestling title

Six years ago, Shawn Contos was coaching wrestling at Eastwood High School.

He is the grandson of the late Steve Contos, a Waite graduate and a member of that school’s athletic hall of fame for his football prowess. After a football career at the University of Michigan, Steve Contos once held NCAA Division I all-time receiving records. Steve went back to Waite to become principal. Shawn’s father, Mark Contos, is now wrestling coach at Maumee High School, and Shawn is continuing the family tradition.

Shawn is now part of the staff at Penn State University, where he serves as strength and conditioning coach. The Nittany Lions wrestling squad last month won its fourth consecutive NCAA D-I national title.

Wildcats’ hitting attack is back supporting Phillips

From 8-13 a year ago to a 6-0 start this season, the Woodmore softball team appears to be headed in the right direction.

Behind senior pitcher Madeline Phillips, Woodmore has won its games via a mix of clutch hitting and piching, something that's already earned them a 2-0 record in the Northern Buckeye Conference.

Despite finishing five games below .500 one year ago, the Wildcats were a little better than their record. Many losses were by close margins, a testament to the job Phillips, a two-time, first team All-NBC selection, did while accumulating a 1.59 ERA to go with 210 strikeouts in 140.2 innings.

With just two seniors on both the boys and girls teams this spring, Gibsonburg track and field coach Glenn Owens knows the Golden Bears have a lot of work to do if they hope to duplicate last year’s performance at the Toledo Area Athletic Conference meet.

The Bears’ boys’ team won the TAAC title, ending Toledo Christian’s nine-year dominance, while the girls’ team took second behind TC.

“Overall, our (girls’) goal is to win the TAAC title,” Owens said. “That’s what we set out to do the last couple years. We’re trying to find enough points to give Toledo Christian a run for it. We’re pretty young. Hopefully the girls who performed well last year come back again and some of these young girls can score so we can give Toledo Christian and some of these other teams a run for the title.
