Clay gymnastics coach Nick Distel co-coach of year
Clay gymnastics coach Nick Distel was named Three Rivers Athletic Conference co-coach of the year along with St. Ursula Academy coach Mike McKee, but the Eagles didn’t get the results they wanted.
In part because two Clay gymnasts were injured, the Eagles did not defend their league title. Instead, they finished third. Distel said the team had been dealing with injuries all season long.
Findlay won the title with 141.9 points, followed by Notre Dame (130.95), Clay (128.45), St. Ursula (119.55), Whitmer (106.36), and Central Catholic (94.2). The meet was held at Exceleration Gymnastic Center in Toledo.
Clay gymnast Emilie Roman is first team all-conference, Ashley O’Neal is second team, and Kayla Dickerson is honorable mention. Findlay’s Alexa Settlemire is Gymnast of the Year after winning all five events.
Roman finished second and O’Neal fourth in the balance beam, Roman was third in the all-around, fourth in the floor exercise, fifth in the vault, and seventh in the uneven bars.
“BCS Local Schools and Oak Harbor High School would like to urge all Oak Harbor and other local vendors to not participate in this scheme. The support of our community and local vendors is always tremendous, but we must reiterate that if a request for athletic related sponsorship comes from someone other than a BCS administrator, Oak Harbor High School Athletic Director Drew Grahl, an Oak Harbor High School coach, or an Oak Harbor High School Athletic Booster Club member, the request will not benefit student-athletes in our school,” says a statement released by the school.
“We continue to urge local vendors to place an ad in the fall and winter athletic sports programs as this is a great way to get your name out to the community and the money earned from these ads benefits Oak Harbor student-athletes through the Oak Harbor Athletic Booster Club.”
