One day a recently graduated high school senior at Eastwood, the next day Alyssa Shimel qualifies to play with the world’s best female professional golfers.
 
Shimel played in the weekend’s Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic LPGA Tour event after qualifying against three professionals and another amateur at a qualifying round at Sylvania Country Club. The top two qualified, and Shimel finished second by carding a 74 over the 18-hole round.
 
“It feels great. I’m really excited,” Shimel said. “I was just trying to keep calm and play it one shot at a time. I just thought I’d shoot the best I could and see what happened. I knew I could if I played well, and if I put in the time and the work at it, it was realistic.”
 
“(Sylvania CC) is a pretty difficult course. It has some tight holes and some pretty long rough, and some pretty slick greens. You have to hit the ball pretty straight.”

Mike Ackerman was awarded the James F. O’Brien and Meghan Scharer the

Leta Wescott Award as the top male and female senior athletes at Clay this past year.

Clay has presented the O’Brien every year since 1974 and Wescott since 1976. It goes to the athlete, who in the judgment of coaches and in combination with the athlete’s participation, scholastic, and individual achievements, merit the award.

This is the most prestigious award that is presented to a Clay High School athlete, Clay athletic officials say.  The winner is always a senior and is chosen by the coaches who rank their senior players in leadership, attitude, sportsmanship, commitment, grade point average, and value to the team. Number of years of participation in sports and individual accomplishments are also factored in.
