Diving coach Scott TenEyck is confident that both of his pupils, Genoa’s Bailey Dipman and Lake’s Samantha TenEyck, can make it to the state meet in Canton this season. He said he sees a lot of potential in Dipman.

"It's just a matter of how much effort she wants to put into it," he said. "She's ahead of most freshmen. Her scores need to improve, but that will improve as we compete more and she gets more experience. Right now she's getting pitted against sophomores, juniors and seniors. She's definitely got talent."

Dipman placed third at the Solon Extravaganza and was sixth at the Knight Invitational. She placed fourth out of 37 divers at the Fremont Ross meet.

"She is just finally coming into her own," coach TenEyck said. "She's got a pretty tough (diving) list, so it's just a matter of cleaning it up. Her advantage is she has great lines. She's tall and slender with great lines for a diver. That highlights what she does."

Dipman, 14, has been diving for half of her life.

Woodmore's football team won its last four games of the 2009 season, but the


Wildcats will have a new head coach in 2010.

Lou Bosh was the Wildcats' head coach for the past 12 years, but the school has chosen to go in another direction.

Woodmore Athletic Director Shane Dyer did not return phone messages or reply to e-mails from the Press seeking comment on Bosh's coaching situation. Dyer sent out e-mails in December posting the school's opening for a new head football coach. The deadline to apply was Jan. 19.

Bosh, 42, said he would "prefer to not make any comments at this time." Bosh had a 54-67 record at Woodmore.

The Northwood School District has a youth football program for third- and

fourth-graders. So do other school districts in the area.

Oregon does not, but that is about to change next fall.

"Oregon is one of few communities around that does not have a youth tackle football program at the third- and fourth-grade level," Brad Morrison said. "Myself and some other parents in the community who have played or coached have kicked it around, but nobody really has stepped up."

Morrison, a 1987 Clay graduate, and his business partner at Maumee Bay Turf, P.J. Kapfhammer, are organizing a Maumee Bay Youth Tackle Football League for third- and fourth-graders in the Oregon School District. They also plan to have teams for youngsters who do not attend school in Oregon.

"This is geared more toward kids who want to be trained for Clay High School football some day," Morrison said. "There will be no cuts, and we will focus on footwork, quarterback drops and other fundamental things that any age can handle.
