Wildcats’ “determination to win” gives them push

Woodmore volleyball coach Julie Odenweller has one issue to face in every volleyball game, and that is “beating our opponents to 25 points first.”

In her second season overseeing the Wildcat program, she has five returning seniors from last season’s 5-17 (1-13, Suburban Lakes League) team. This is her first head varsity coaching job, but she coached the Washington Local junior team two years and was Whitmer freshman coach four years. In addition, she coached club volleyball for Toledo RAVE four years.

The coach said “our determination to win” will get the Wildcats through the Suburban Lakes League schedule.

“We want to compete and give it our all each time we step onto the court,” Odenweller said.

TAAC considering Gibsonburg as newest member

Many could say it is the “Bill Hrabak effect.” The coach who once was at Cardinal Stritch and Genoa was always known for thinking out of the box.
This so-called “effect,” as I term it, has an end result of Gibsonburg applying and being considered as a member of the Toledo Area Athletic Conference.
Why the Hrabak effect? Because Hrabak, once he became football coach at Fostoria St. Wendelin, was part of the movement there to get St. Wendelin out of the Midland Athletic League for football only. I’m not giving Hrabak or St. Wendelin a chance to defend themselves now because male enrollment is down there and the change can be understood. He has 22 players on his football team this year, and that includes two females who are listed as kickers.
