Genoa sophomore midfielder/forward Olivia Reeder says she owes all of her seemingly-inexhaustible energy stores to her many sisters-in-arms on her various GHS athletic teams; to her older sibling and recent Genoa grad Melissa; and to mom Chris, a seventh-year kindergarten teacher at Brunner Elementary.

She owes it to the Old Country of Hungary, which is where Olivia’s semi-famous grandfather Josef Nagy forged a rather distinguished career playing professional soccer for a number of years before breaking his neck in a match.

Coach: Mike May, first year, 0-0.
Last Year: 8-3 (6-1 Sandusky Bay Conference).

Forecast: May has the task of keeping the Rockets rolling after coach Gary Quisno, who is now at Sandusky Perkins, led the program to a 224-83 record in 29 years. Oak Harbor, which lost in the first round of the playoffs to Marion Pleasant last fall, made eight playoff appearances under Quisno.

"There's an old saying in football that you never want to follow a legend, but I saw it as an advantage," May said. "He left the program in such great shape. Everything was intact coming in. He and his staff did such a great job over the years. The kids already knew how to work hard and they are used to discipline and have been fundamentally sound over the years. There are a lot of advantages to following coach Quisno."

"Lake has made great strides," said Vicars, whose unbeaten Comets host the Flyers on Oct. 17. "Coming off 0-10 is as hard as anything to do and they have done pretty well. I know, in my first four years as a head coach, we were unlucky enough to go 0-10 twice. It is such a tough experience and such a humbling experience.
