Welling was rewarded for leading the Irish to a 20-4 season and TRAC championship with a 13-1 league record.

One of his former assistants, Clay girls coach Corey Slovak, was glad to see it. Slovak got the same award on the girls side of the ledger.

All sophomore Mollie McGhee and junior Alexa Encheff intended on doing at the end of soccer season last fall was lift a few weights to help prepare for the 2014 season.

McGhee, a forward, and Encheff, a defender on Genoa’s soccer squad, got more than they anticipated when they started regularly working out at the school’s athletic complex.

“We started working out after school to stay in shape,” McGhee said. “Some of the boys in the weight room suggested we try this Kenton state lifting competition. We didn’t know much about it. We thought about it and we knew no girls from Genoa have gone to this. We thought we’d try it.”
