The Toledo Walleye welcomed Olympic Hero and former Toledo Goaldigger Mike Eruzione for his first visit to the new Lucas County Arena downtown. The appearance comes nearly 30 years after Eruzione helped Team USA win the gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y. and over 7,000 fans warmly welcomed his arrival. In this photo, East Toledo resident R.J. St. John, son of season ticket holder Ray St. John, is at the Walleye game celebrating his birthday alongside Eruzione. R.J. is wearing a Toledo Goaldigger jersey (signed by Eruzione in 2005) that Mike Greeder gave to him at the Goaldigger’s 25-year anniversary game at the Toledo Sports Arena in 2005. The Walleye defeated Elmira that night, 5-1.

Ohio Northern University 5-foot-10 junior forward Brittany Bogart (Northwood) led the team with a career-high 16 points and a season-high five rebounds in 23 minutes of action off the bench, but the Polar Bears lost to the No. 25 ranked Capital Crusaders 62-55.

Bogart was 6-of-9 from the field and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line. This was Bogart's highest point total since scoring 11 points against Marietta on January 26, 2008.

The Polar Bears did not score against the nationally ranked Crusaders for nearly the first eight minutes of the game. It was Bogart who broke the ice, converting a layup at the 12:09 mark to cut the deficit to 11-2 in favor of Capital.

Northern continued to plug away and eventually tied the game at 43-43 with just over seven minutes to go. Capital would score the next four points, but Bogart would respond with a layup and two free throws to tie the score at 47-47 at the 5:27 mark.

Third-year Clay wrestling coach Gerry Anthony had plenty to be happy about following his program's season-opening weekend.

"We're pretty excited," Anthony said. "We just picked up where we left off from last year."

On Dec. 4-5, Clay's Gold team took second place behind Bedford Chanel at the 24-team Comet Classic in Solon. That same weekend the Eagles' Green team finished third out of 10 teams at the Oak Harbor Invitational. The host Rockets scored 279½ points, followed by Kettering Fairmont (223) and Clay (190).

On Dec. 5, the Eagles' freshman squad crowned six individual champions en route to winning the Maumee Invitational.

"This is probably the strongest freshman group we've had since I've been here," Anthony said. "Both of our middle schools won tournaments the same weekend. It was just a great weekend for Oregon wrestling."

Clay's varsity program will once again play two full team schedules this season. The Eagles return 30 lettermen from a squad that last season claimed its first City League title in 45 years.
