Was it luck or just the law of averages that caught up with Thomas Schmeltz last

month at Hidden Hills Golf Club in Woodville?

The 18-year-old from Pemberville, who played on the golf and baseball teams at Eastwood High School before graduating last spring, has been playing lots of golf this summer.

"Probably five times a week," Schmeltz said. "Mostly at Hidden Hills, but we've gone to Tanglewood and we've gone down to Hillcrest in Findlay and at Detwiler in Toledo."

On July 21, Schmeltz grabbed his 7-iron and stepped up to the 18th tee at Hidden Hills. His target was 150 yards away.

Lucas Apel is the youngest of Jeff and Esmeralda Apel's five children. He's also

the most famous.

When Lucas, now 14, was 11 years old his father took him bow hunting for whitetail deer in Ohio and Michigan. Jeff Apel took a few cameras with him, and over the course of three years the footage of Lucas' outdoors experience was made into a DVD devoted to youths entitled “The Journey Begins.”

"I'm a bowhunter and my son, Lucas, when he was 11, asked if I would start taking him hunting," Apel said. "That was when the idea struck us that we could use his experiences as he begins his outdoor adventures as a way to chronicle his time outdoors and use that as the basis for the production."
The DVD was produced by Jeff and Esmeralda's new production company, Straight Arrow Productions LLC. The company's motto is “Share the Passion • Share the Adventure.”

The Cardinal Stritch girls’ basketball team took second place in the Toledo Area

Athletic Conference last year behind Ottawa Hills, but the Cardinals aren't waiting until official practice starts on Oct. 30 to try to reclaim the conference crown.

The Cardinals, who have won three TAAC titles in Coach Gary Lemle's six years as coach, have had a busy summer in an effort to build a new squad and jell as a team.

"We just wrapped up a busy June, when we did the Summer Slam out at the University of Toledo and at the UT women's team Shootout," Lemle said. "We do the UT Shootout every year, but the Summer Slam was new for us. We wanted to try that out because we didn't participate in Steve Mix (at UT). This year we're going to be pretty young, so we try to develop some of the younger players to gauge their ability."
