Stuttgart gets ‘pumped’ about Halloween

Firefighter Manfred Hees hands a pumpkin to his colleague Matthias Künast, both of the USAG Stuttgart Fire Department, during the annual Pumpkin Drop on Patch Barracks Oct. 23. Each year, elementary and middle school students donate “cushy” material in an attempt to save pumpkins from a drop of more than 30 meters high. Patch High School students record the “survivability” data as part of a physics project.

he Stuttgart Theatre Center on Kelley Barracks has figured out the recipe for artistic success, and it includes a Greek goddess, musical numbers and roller skates. Army officials found that mixture irresistible as they awarded the theatre with 14 awards for their production of “Xanadu” at the 2012 U.S. Army Festival of the Arts. The Festival of the Arts is an annual awards program designed by U.S. Army Family Morale, Welfare and Recreation which allows garrisons with theatre programs worldwide to showcase their work. A panel of theatre professionals travels to Army theatres throughout the year judging productions and performances. The theatre teams competing in the program do not get

Community engagement needed to ‘Keep Stuttgart Clean’ Commentary by Col. John P. Stack USAG Stuttgart commander

L

ike most service members in Stuttgart, I was very happy to learn I would have the opportunity to serve here. Stuttgart has an outstanding reputation as a center of innovation, engineering and culture. It’s also known as one of the cleanest and safest cities in the world. With critical Department of Defense activities here, there is no doubt that it’s a great place to live and work. Likewise, our U.S. military bases in Stuttgart are well maintained, safe and secure. We have first-rate infrastructure to support our first-rate mission. Recently, however, one can easily notice a significant Col. Stack amount of litter in and around our streets, facilities and fields. It’s challenging for me to understand how this can be when one considers, that in the military, we pride ourselves with good order and discipline. Fact is, that while the vast majority of us are very conscientious about how we process our trash, we have too many residents who are careless with their trash. People are willing to toss trash on the ground, and walk right past litter on the street.

Clearly, there is a need to renew our efforts to get after this problem, which has many layers. Therefore, our response is also multi-layered. We are conducting a review of installation-wide refuse efforts, unit and community engagement and involvement, enforcement of dumping and littering violations, and education to ensure everyone understands the significant cost of litter on our bases. That is why during the week of Nov. 13 to 16, U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart and the Directorate of Public Works will execute our post-wide Recycle and CleanUp Week. During this week, we will have a series of educational, hands-on events across the community: Nov. 13, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Patch Barracks’ J-Mall Food Court; Nov. 14, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Kelley Barracks’ Subway Parking Lot; and Nov. 15, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Panzer Exchange. The weeklong program will culminate Nov. 16 when all units, housing areas, schools and other organizations will take a few hours to clean up their areas and target known trouble areas. There is a clear need for education and communication on this topic, so we designed “Your Home, Your Work, Your Litter - Keep Stuttgart Clean” – an awareness and action campaign. Experience has shown that keeping the litterprevention message in the public eye is essential to addressing litter problems.

the

You can help put a stop to littering by: • Setting a good example for others by not littering. All organization and units working and living on our installations should develop and maintain an enforcement program and campaign within their ranks. • Discouraging others from littering. At all levels, hold people accountable for their actions. • Conducting clean-up and educational programs to educate people, units and organizations about the damage caused by littering. • Trash. Garbage. Waste. No matter what you call it, litter is detrimental to Stuttgart installations for many reasons. It poses health risks, effects water quality and wildlife habitat, it looks ugly and costs lots of money and time to clean up. The Stuttgart military community spends thousands of dollars annually to clean litter from its installations, money that would be better spent improving our roads and infrastructure. Litter is a serious problem in Stuttgart, as you may have noticed while walking around the community. It’s a problem we can solve, but only with your help. For more information on our anti-litter and recycling programs, and to find out ways you can help, contact the Directorate of Public Works Environmental Division at 421-6134 or civ. 0711-729-6134.

Roses to: Ron — a Patch Shoppette employee, who went out of his way to help me and my 2-year-old child Sept. 26. I was pushing a stroller along the sidewalk near the shoppette headed to the commissary when it collapsed. This angel not only offered to help, but went and got his tools to fix the stroller. Thanks to Ron, we were back on our way with a working stroller in just five minutes. A big, heartfelt thank you to Ron, you made my day.

Roads in the Stuttgart area can get treacherous quickly during winter. For up-to-date information on road conditions and operation status for all Stuttgart installations, community members can visit the garrison website at www.stuttgart.army.mil.

Stay informed on up-to-date road conditions, operational status USAG Stuttgart Public Affairs Office

W

hen winter weather strikes on an early weekday morning, U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart community members don’t need to be in the dark on cancellations and delays. The Installation Operations Center monitors weather conditions continuously. “Our goal is to always keep the installations open,” said John A. Kearney, director of USAG Stuttgart Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security. “However, if we believe the current and future weather forecast has the potential to impact the safety of our families and workforce, the garrison commander will make the decision to reduce operations or close facilities.” When decisions are made that impact operations due to weather conditions, the garrison utilizes several methods to keep the community informed. By 6 a.m., and throughout the day in case of early releases, notifications about road conditions and operations are posted to the garrison facebook page (www.facebook.com/USA GarrisonStuttgart). On the garrison website (www.stuttgart.army.mil), under the “Weather and Road Conditions” section there are links to a five-day forecast and a chart explaining the road condition colors. Announcements will also air on American Forces Network Stuttgart (102.3 FM and 1143 AM). The AFN website (www.afneurope. net) also links to the Installation Management Command-Europe road conditions page. Community members can also call the Weather and

Road Condition Hotline at 431-3744 or civ. 07031-15-3744. The decision to cancel or close operations is made by the garrison commander, after he is informed of the current road conditions by the director of emergency services. The report is based on input from police patrols. Only roads on Stuttgart installations and the main routes between them are surveyed. Each route is assigned a number based on its condition, all numbers are than averaged, and an overall condition is assigned to the community. Announcements regarding Soldier and employee work-reporting instructions during times of reduced or closed operations only apply to the garrison organizations and workforce. Service members and employees in other Stuttgart units should always check with their organization to determine their individual “emergency essential” work status. “We have the responsibility to maintain mission-essential operations and functions even when operations are reduced or closed,” Kearney said. “For example, the child development centers need to remain open for those employees who must work during those reduced or closed timeframes.” Those not in an emergency essential work status should always use common sense when attempting drive in adverse weather conditions. “If you feel it is unsafe to get to work, call your supervisor and let them know. By all means, do not travel if conditions are not adequate,” Kearney said.

Rodriguez nominated to succeed Ham at AFRICOM

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta announced Oct. 18 that President Barack Obama nominated U.S. Army Forces Command’s Gen. David M. Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter F. Ham as the commander of U.S. Africa Command. The Senate must confirm Rodriguez, who is currently commander of U.S. Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C. “He has served in a variety of key leadership roles on the battlefield,” Panetta said, in announcing the nomination. Rodriguez was the first commander of the International Security Assistance Force Joint Command, the corps-level command in Afghanistan. He was the commander during the surge into Afghanistan, “and was a key architect of the successful campaign plan that we are now implementing,” Panetta said. Ham has served as the AFRICOM commander since March 2011. “Under his leadership, AFRICOM has played a central role in some very important missions,” Panetta said. “From the NATO campaign in Libya that led to the fall of Gadhafi to successful counterterrorism efforts in Somalia [and] Yemen, to current efforts in Nigeria and Mali. Ham has really brought AFRICOM into a very pivotal role in that challenging region.” (This information was provided by the Armed Forces Press Service.)

Ask a JAG Editor’s Note: Do you have a question you would like to see answered in a future edition of The Citizen? If so, contact “Ask a JAG” at andrew.j.rouchka.mil@mail.mil. By Capt. Andrew Rouchka (U.S. Army) Stuttgart Law Center Q: I am a federal employee working for the Department of Defense, and have been closely following the upcoming elections. Are there restrictions on my involvement? A: Although serving as a federal employee does not prohibit a person from participating in our country’s political process, there are restrictions on how such employees may participate. A federal law passed in 1939, named after former Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico, prevents federal employees from conducting certain political activities on, and sometimes off, duty. The law, commonly referred to as the Hatch Act, prohibits federal employees from using their position to influence or interfere with an election. A federal employee may not solicit or discourage political activity from anyone who has business before the employee’s agency. Federal employees also may not wear political buttons while on duty or display political items such as posters, signs or stickers in the workplace. They may not run for public office in partisan elections, solicit or receive political contributions, or host political fundraisers at their home. More extensive restrictions exist for employees of certain federal agencies, such as the Defense Intelligence Agency. Although the Hatch Act does not apply to military personnel, DoD Directive 1344.10 imposes similar restrictions on their political activities. As with other federal employees, military personnel may not use their position to influence or interfere with an election. Additional restrictions exist, due to the differences between civilian and military life. For example, although a service member may display a political bumper sticker on his or her private vehicle, he or she may not display a partisan political sign at his or her residence if the residence is on post and the sign is visible to the public. Consequences for violating the Hatch Act can be serious. During the last election, a federal employee used his government computer to email co-workers and solicit funds for a particular political candidate. He was suspended from duty and pay for 120 days. A different federal employee under similar circumstances was terminated. None of this is to say, however, that federal employees may not participate in the political process. They may register and vote as they wish. They may also assist in voter registration drives, contribute money to political organizations, attend and participate in political rallies, and distribute campaign literature, among other things, so long as they do so outside the scope of their employment.

to choose which performances will be critiqued. The play being performed during the panel’s visit counts as the team’s submission. “‘Xanadu’ is an incredibly entertaining play and really highlighted what we can do here,” said Richard Roberts, Stuttgart Theatre Center’s artistic director. “It just happened that the judges came through during our performances.” The campy, 1980s-style musical placed in nearly every musical category of this year’s competition, hauling in three first-place, nine second-place and two third- place awards. Army Community Theatres annually stage more than 900 shows worldwide for audiences numbering more than a quarter of a million, according to the Festival of the Arts website. But to accomplish this, they rely heavily on community support and volunteers. “We only have a staff of four people, so all of the actors, musicians and builders in our productions are volunteers,” said Roberts, who personally won three awards in this year’s competition. “What we do here wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for them.” The theatre is about to embark on a new season of performances, and has five productions scheduled over the next nine months to include “Cinderella,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “The Women” and

“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” “These performances aren’t just entertainment, they’re meaningful,” Roberts said. “Especially overseas where the community doesn’t have access to Englishlanguage theatre like they would in the states.” The Stuttgart Theatre Center

is always on the lookout for volunteers, and that’s not limited to actors and actresses. The theatre also needs costume and set designers, light and sound technicians, builders and stage managers. People interested in volunteering for upcoming productions can contact the Stuttgart Theatre Center at 421-3258 or civ. 0711-729-3258.

Red Ribbon Week ties in drug prevention with fun activities By Sally Novak USAG Stuttgart Substance Abuse Program

C

hildren of parents who talk to their teens regularly about the dangers of drugs are 42 percent less likely to use drugs than those who don’t, yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations, according to the National Family Partnership. To help drive home that message, the U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart Substance Abuse Program, in conjunction with local Department of Defense Dependent schools, held the weeklong Red Ribbon Campaign, Oct. 22 – 26. The national Red Ribbon campaign began as a way to heighten awareness of drug prevention and commemorate the death of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique Camarena, who was killed in 1985 while investigating a drug ring in Mexico. This year’s local campaign paved the way in preventing substance abuse among youth with a program focused on engaging students in positive activities, clubs and hobbies, according to Marianne Campano, ASAP prevention coordinator. “Classroom instruction on the dangers of drugs isn’t effective,” Campano said. “USAG Stuttgart has embraced evidence-based research for our programs, and we’ve re-interpreted this year’s Red Ribbon week to enable kids to become active participants in creating a culture of good health and wellness.” A student-led committee of local middle and high school students met with ASAP personnel over the summer and formulated a plan to reach other students for this year’s campaign. “The Red Ribbon week’s festivities engaged youth in organized school activities, aimed at developing a sense of greater connection to their schools, teachers and families … all of which are effective strategies that have been highlighted in a recent report by the Institute of Medicine,” Campano said.

Robinson Barracks Elementary and Middle School students cross the street on Robinson Barracks as Staff Sgt. Montrell Gipson, assigned to 52nd Signal Battalion, safeguards the crosswalk during the school’s “Walk Out on Drugs” Oct. 26. The event marked the school’s grand finale to this year’s Red Ribbon Week campaign that focused on drug prevention. Gipson, along with other volunteer Soldiers, served as road guards and cheered on the walkers while holding posters designed by students. One highlight of the week’s events was the Red Ribbon Rocks Stuttgart Fair held Oct. 25 at Patch High School. “The event introduced kids to fun activities that hopefully led to new interest and friendships … steering them away from drug and alcohol abuse,” said Jenny Sparks, a PHS junior and the fair’s student organizer. Robinson Barracks Elementary and Middle School used the motto “What Right Looks Like for Red Ribbon” for its program that showcased clubs and activities, and culminated with a “Walk Out on Drugs” Oct. 26. “The idea was to use the Army theme of ‘What Right Looks Like’ as a focal point for discussion and education on themes of bullying, doing the right thing and decision making … The belief, that one person can make a difference will be carried throughout the year,” said Randy Zamerinksy-Lussier, a RBEMS counselor.

T

wo new Eagle Scouts were welcomed into the fold Oct. 11. Boy Scout Troop 44’s Diego Williams, 17, and Thomas Greene, 14, achieved the rank of Eagle Scout – the highest rank in Scouting – following a board of review held at the Panzer Family Housing Scout Hut. Williams and Greene take their places among an elite group that includes Steven Spielberg, Donald Rumsfeld and Neil Armstrong, and closer to home, Gen. Carter F. Ham, the commander of U.S. Africa Command. To earn the rank, Williams and Greene had to progress through the Scouting ranks, earn at least 21 merit badges, serve in a leadership position and complete service projects, according to Lisa Minnich, the troop’s advancement chairwoman. The Scouting program encourages boys to learn and practice leadership skills, and the Eagle Scout service project puts those skills to the test. A Scout must plan, develop and document a project that benefits an organization

outside of Scouting and lead others in doing the project, according to Greene, who has been a Scout for four years. “You have to be very organized,â€? he added. He and Williams both happened to complete their service projects for BĂśblingen Elementary/Middle School. “I’ve always wanted to help the school,â€? said Greene, a Patch High School freshman who attended middle school at BEMS on Panzer Kaserne. Working with the school, the BEMS Parent Teacher Association and U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart’s Directorate of Public Works, Greene and several volunteers relocated a memorial that honors the short life of Brigitte Scheiderich, a BEMS seventh-grader who died in 1988 after a swimming accident. Greene moved the memorial from an unassuming location next to the playground, to in front of the school. But that wasn’t all. Each spring, the school awards the Brigitte Scheiderich Award to a seventh-grader for demonstrated academic and athletic excellence. Dale Moore, the BEMS principal, enlisted Greene to develop a script for the award presentation. “Thomas researched her life by contacting

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY America Recycles Day, Nov. 15, is a national awareness program that promotes the benefits of buying recycled products and recycling old ones. The purpose of the day is to learn about recycling, make a commitment to increase recycling activities, and to purchase more products made from recycled materials. Buying recycled, closes the loop, as recycled items (instead of virgin natural resources) are utilized to make new products. Stronger markets for our recyclable items are then created. Your attitude and actions can make a world of difference. Let’s do our part, because almost everything can be recycled…except the planet.

Exhibition highlights Celtic culture, identity Story by Carola Meusel USAG Stuttgart Public Affairs Office

M

any myths have circulated concerning the Celts and their way of life. Some may think of them as a barbaric and “headhunting” horde. In Stuttgart, visitors can find out the truth to the myths as well as historic facts about the Celtic civilization, its vibrant culture and identity during the “Der Welt der Kelten,” or “World of Celts,” exhibition. The exhibition runs until Feb. 17, 2013 in downtown Stuttgart. The exhibition consists of two parts: “Zentren der Macht,” or “Seats of Power,” located in the Kunstgebäude (art building) at Schlossplatz, and “Kostbarkeiten der Kunst,” or “Treasures of Art,” located at the Alte Schloss (Old Castle). The exhibition aims to recreate the Celtic way of life as well as the historic influence of the Celts in Europe, according to Dr. Heike Scholz, spokeswoman for the Landesmuseum Württemberg. More than 1,300 artifacts and recent archeological findings from all over Europe are displayed throughout the exhibition. According to a Landesmuseum Württemberg press release, the Celts were mentioned for the first time in Greek documents around 500 B.C. The ancient historian Herodotus localized the Celts in Central Europe. However, archaeological findings proved that the Celts had already settled in Southern Germany, Switzerland and Eastern France about 100 years earlier. During the fourth and third century B.C., Celts were traced in Italy, the Balkan region, Greece and parts of Turkey in search of new settlements. The tribal societies did not represent a Celtic nation, but its people embraced the same traditions in arts and crafts, religion and language. According to the press release, the Celtic culture originated in Southern Germany, Switzerland and Eastern France. The “Seats of Power” exhibition displays the evolution of the Celtic civilization in Central and Western Europe from the Iron Age until the beginning of the Roman era. Visitors can look at artifacts that depict the everyday life of the Celts to include trade, technical innovations, religion and the tribal societies’ structure, according to Scholz. The seats of some early Celtic princes, as well as large defended settlements, or “oppida,” are also on display. Visitors can fully experience some of the “seats of power” on three-dimensional media kiosks throughout the exhibition.

The drinking horn of the “Prince’s Grave of Kappel” is one of many findings that are featured during the “World of Celts” exhibition in downtown Stuttgart. The exhibition runs until Feb. 17, 2013 and consists of two parts: “Seats of Power” and “Treasures of Art.”

One of the exhibit’s centerpieces is the “Glass Bowl of Ihringen.” The bowl dates back to the early Iron Age and was found in the Breisgau Black Forest region. The drinking horn of the “Prince’s Grave of Kappel,” one of the most treasured Celtic graves in Central Europe, is another highlight. The excavated belongings of a Celtic princess also provide insight into Celtic culture. The Treasures of Art exhibition displays jewelry including colorful glass bracelets and golden necklaces, weapons as well as items for everyday use such as bowls, coins, belts and more. Patrons can see the bronze “Mirror of Desborough” with spiral and trumpet motifs that were typical for Celtic art in Great Britain. Findings from the grave of the Celtic “Prince of Hochdorf” such as golden footwear and the princes’ large coffin and a bronze cauldron are also featured. To get the most out of the “Celtic” experience, Scholz, the spokeswoman of the Landesmuseum Württemberg, recommends visiting the “Seats of Power” prior to the “Treasures of Art” exhibition.

With Daylight Savings behind us and longer hours of darkness ahead, motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are urged to be extra careful. As a pedestrian or cyclist, make sure you can be easily seen, especially at night, on dark days and in bad weather. • Bright or fluorescent clothes show up best by day, even in dull or misty weather. • In the dark, reflective material shows up best when shined by car headlights. Clothing with reflective patches

“Overall, the goal of both exhibitions is to clarify some of the common misconceptions of the Celts solely being barbarians,” Scholz said. Editor’s Note: During the “Seats of Power” exhibition, the Celtic “headhunting” ritual is also explained. Celts thought of the head as the center of power. Therefore, taking an opponent’s head following a battle became a common ritual. The exhibition is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday until Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibition is closed on Monday. Tickets cost €15 and include admission into both exhibitions. Visitors can tour one part of the exhibition and come back for a second visit any other day until the exhibition ends. Family tickets cost €30. Entrance for children five years old and younger is free. Audio guides in English are available and can be purchased for €2. For English-guided tours, call civ. 0711-89535-445. For more information, visit www.keltenstuttgart.de.

or reflective tape on coats or school bags help pedestrians, cyclists and children be more visible to drivers. • When walking at night, choose routes that are well lit by streetlights and cross the road at well lit intersections. • If you have to walk on the road, always face the oncoming traffic-this is particularly important in low light or dark times. • Motorists should slow down and use caution when driving in residential areas, around schools, kindergartens, playgrounds, bus stops or other areas where children and other pedestrians are common.

the family. They were thrilled that he was moving the memorial. He also presented the award to this year’s winner, Hannah Seely,” Moore said. PHS senior Diego Williams choose a project designed to brighten up the playground and teach geography through play. He and 12 volunteers sketched out and painted a map of the United States on the asphalted play area. With a little research, Williams found a stencil, which he said saved a lot of time, and the appropriate type of paint for the surface and local weather. “It should last for a long time – until the school closes,” he said.

Teachers appreciate the addition. “I use the map with my kids all the time. We use it as a gathering place,” said kindergarten teacher Teresa Senna. Later in the year, Senna said she will use the map during a unit on the United States. “It’s been fun integrating it into my lesson plans,” she added. Williams’ map is also a resource for incidental learning. Moore said he watches students during recess have conversations about the states – where they have lived and where they were born. “Even without a formal lesson plan, it’s being used as a teaching tool, and that’s nice,” Moore added.

Panthers on the Prow

Patch claws its way into playoffs with homecoming By Mark J. Howell USAG Stuttgart Public Affairs Office

T

he Patch Panthers varsity football team dominated the Lakenheath Lancers during their homecoming matchup Oct. 20, winning 31-8 and securing a playoff berth in the process. The Panthers’ offensive line held off the Lancer defense and set up rushing touchdowns by quarterback Jack Smith and runners Andrew Mineni, Anthony Coltson and Curtis Hobson.

Defensive leaders for Patch included Brayden Lamb, who had 10 tackles, followed by Vince Stefano (eight), Connor Hartzell (seven), and Joe Logan and Dylan Stanko with six each. Stanko also contributed a safety, pulling down Lakenheath quarterback A.J. Ransom in the end zone to close out the game’s first half. The Panthers took their homecoming momentum to Vilseck Oct. 27, looking for revenge on a Falcons’ team that beat them earlier this year … and a spot in the Department of Defense Dependents School Europe Division I championship game. They achieved both goals, beating the Falcons 30-8

in a game played in the first snow of the season. The Panther defense used the weather to their advantage causing seven fumbles, five of which they recovered. The offense took advantage of the turnovers, scoring three rushing touchdowns, two from Mineni and one from Hobson. Jack Smith also added six points by running back a blocked punt. The Panthers will face the undefeated Ramstein Royals in the DODDS Division I championship game Nov. 3 in Baumholder.

Cross country

The Patch High School cross country teams turned in respectable finishes at their homecoming meet Oct. 20, with the girls’ team placing first and the boys finishing second. The Lady Panthers’ Morgan Mahlock led the pack in the 5k with a finishing time of 20:12, and teammate Baileigh Sessions following only 19 seconds behind.

Jacob Lindman and Tyler Gamble finished in second and third place in the boy’s 5k, but it wasn’t enough to secure first place for the Panthers. The DODDS European Division I cross country championship was held Oct. 27 in Baumholder, on a snow-covered route. The Lady Panthers, reigning DODDS Europe champions, brought home another title behind strong races from Sessions and Mahlock. Sessions took first place overall with a time of 20:20, and Mahlock picked up second with a time of 20:43. The boys’ team brought home silver at the championship, with Mitchell Bailey turning in a seventh-place finish with a time of 17:38, and Tyler Gamble came in 10th at 17:45.

Patch’s Rachel Hess led the way for the Panthers with a combined 29 kills, while teammate Mercedes Deets contributed with a combined 13 kills and eight aces, according to coach Mike Rubino. On Oct. 27, the Panthers picked up two more wins defeating Bamberg 25-13, 25-13 and 25-9; and

Tennis

The Panthers boys’ and girls’ tennis teams racked up impressive numbers during their homecoming match against Heidelberg Oct. 20. The Patch girls won 9-0, while the boys won 7-2. Ajdin Tahirovic, the top-ranked player in DODDS Europe, glided past his opponent in straight sets, 6-1, 6-0, and girls’ leader Eugenia Srodowki didn’t miss a

point, defeating her opponent 6-0, 6-0. The tennis season wrapped up Oct. 26-27 in Wiesbaden with the European championships, and Patch bringing home a Division I title. Srodowki came from behind in her match to defeat AFNORTH freshman Alexandria Bellas, 1-6, 6-3, 7-5. After three years of unbeaten play, Tahirovic lost in the championship match to second-seeded Dimitris Stavropoulos of SHAPE High School, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
