Legislature honors Kylee Ault, national champions
State Representative Tim Brown (R-Bowling Green) honored the Bowling Green State University cheerleading squad with House Resolution 345 for their athletic achievements. The university is located in Rep. Brown’s district, which includes all of Wood County.

The BGSU cheerleading squad was congratulated with this resolution for winning first place in the Division I small co-ed category at the 2014 College Cheer and Dance National Championships.

Kylee Ault, a 2012 Clay grad, is a member of that squad, which finished second to national champion Hofstra University the year before. The Falcons turned the tables this year. Ault, a state placing gymnast at Clay, was not a cheerleader in high school.

Because of 93 wins, the American League Championship Series, and an AL Central Division championship, 2013 was a huge success for the Tigers.

Yet a team with the returning MVP, Cy Young Award winner and championship expectations finds itself at a crossroads. It starts with the retirement of longtime manager Jim Leyland, a Perrysburg native and former Pemberville American Legion Post No. 183 baseball player, where he teamed with current Pemberville Legion coach Don “Chopper” Schmeltz.

In addition, the Tigers made sweeping changes to its roster. After numerous trades, signings and injuries the Tigers have more questions than answers heading into the season.

The Cleveland Indians surprised a lot of people last year by finishing the season strong and qualifying for the playoffs, falling to Tampa Bay, 4-0, in their single-game wild card matchup.

Now, the Indians are looking to harness some of the momentum built up last season and make it back to the postseason.

This, despite the fact that the team allowed two of its starting pitchers, Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir, and relief pitcher Joe Smith to leave via free agency. The owners, the Dolan family, as they're accustomed to doing, decided not to spend the money necessary to keep the team's top free agents and time will tell if it comes back to haunt the club.
