Clay baseball coach Karl Knierim remains only the third coach in over three-quarters of a century of baseball at the school, and after 12 years his teams have gone 218-96.

His commitment to Clay remains strong, even though he once coached at Cardinal Stritch, too (34-17).

Under Knierim, teams have won district championships in 1984 (Stritch) and at Clay in 1997, 2006, and 2007. In 2008, Clay was 17-8 overall and 10-1 in the Toledo City League. In 2009, with five returning lettermen, the Eagles conquered another City League championship.

Some bad weather - and two poor throws - rained on Derrick Vicars' parade May 21-23 in San Angelo, Texas.

Vicars, a 2008 graduate of Genoa High School, qualified for the NCAA Division II National Championships in the discus for the University of Findlay.

Vicars was one of 11 UF men and women competing at the event, and he was one of only three freshmen competing in the discus.

"It was in the 80s all week and it rained on the Saturday I threw," Vicars said. "We had a two-and-a-half-hour rain delay before I threw. It affected everybody. All the throws were down. I just didn't perform well. If I would have made one decent throw, I would have made the final."
