City council candidates

GOP committee decides not to endorse By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard’s Republican Central Committee unanimously decided not to endorse candidates for city council in May’s primary election. “We have collectively decided that we have five well-qualified candidates and will allow the democratic process to determine who represents the party on Hilliard council,” wrote committee member and council president Brett Sciotto after the screening. Those candidates are incumbents Albert Iosue

comment, but Iosue wrote that he was disappointed not to be endorsed, and understood the committee had a difficult decision. “I believe in the citizens of Hilliard and trust they will select the most qualified and trusted candidates to serve the community,” Iosue wrote. The private screening lasted two hours Feb. 17 Tim Brett Stephanie at the Hilliard Public Library, and the decision was Roberts Sciotto Kunze made, Sciotto wrote, “after careful consideration and Bill Uttley, and newcomers Joseph Erb, Nathan and thorough debate” by himself and fellow comPainter and Cornell Robertson. The five are vying mittee members Susan Bogan, Stephanie Kunze and Tim Roberts. The latter two are council memfor three council seats. Uttley did not respond to an e-mail request for bers.

“We’re looking for the most qualified Republicans to do that job,” Kunze said of the screening process. “It’s a little more focused on how you would run your campaign, how long have you been a Republican, what are your conservative values, some of those things that maybe didn’t come into play during the council interviews.” Erb, Painter, Robertson and Uttley were among those who were interviewed last year by council. Uttley, a former councilman, was chosen to replace Dan Nichter, who resigned.

Patience key for future of Hickory Chase

“Things are happening, and then they’re not,” Hilliard economic development director David Meeks said of Hickory Chase. Hickory Chase, a proposed retirement community bounded by Davidson and Leap roads and Britton Parkway, still sits empty, guarded and maintained. “We’ve had a few meetings now over the last couple of months with the whole team from Hickory Chase. And it’s a big team,” Meeks said. “There are five different banks involved, the attorneys for the receivers and the company and the bondholders. We’re trying to get together and push the ownership end along so that they can get the property sold. So hopefully we’ll have some progress by the end of the year.” Construction on Hickory Chase ceased in May 2009, and builder Erickson Retirement Communities filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy two months later. There was interest, though: more than 2,000 people requested information on living in the $288-million, retirement community, which would have been the largest project of its type in the country, and more than 100 people had made reservations to move into the first phase. “Erickson was probably the only in the country that did communities that size, 2,200 residents,” Meeks said.

A piece of bacon tops some of the mini-cupcakes made by Hilliard resident Scarlett Kilzer. “It tastes like breakfast,” Kilzer said. “We put maple syrup in our frosting, batter and cinnamon to make it taste like a really yummy pancake, and then add the bacon and the nuts on top.” Other cupcake flavors resemble Zingers, Oreos, Orange Creamsicles, Caramel Macchiatos, Boston Banana Cream Pies and cookie dough. “We had decided we weren’t going to do regular-flavored cupcakes,” Kilzer said. “I love to cook, so we incorporated different spices and different flavor combinations. We’re working on a curry chocolate. The new flavors don’t come out unless we’re all in agreement that it’s the perfect flavor for the spice.” Kilzer is the owner, founder and baker for Cupcake Yum.Yum, a Hilliard-based business specializing in creative cupcakes and other confections. Cupcake Yum.Yum got its name from Kilzer’s dad, Doug Grassel, who is the guitarist of the Ohio Express, a bubblegum band out of Mansfield that once graced the pop charts with such infectious hits as Chewy Chewy and Yummy Yummy Yummy (“I’ve got love in my tummy” rhymes the latter song). “He’s still playing,” Kilzer said. “He’s in Germany right now and they’re touring in Europe….

‘EverGreen Team’ will join forces with sustainability group By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard’s EverGreen Team is about to be recycled into the city’s Environmental Sustainability Commission (ESC). According to the city’s website, the ESC “shall review exist-

ing green policies and advise city council, the mayor, and city officials in the initiation and or development of programs that will create or enhance sustainable practices within our community.” The ESC will be separate from the Shade Tree Commission. Council is expected to approve

formation of the ESC at its Feb. 28 meeting. During the ordinance’s second reading, council president Brett Sciotto said forming an ESC came out of an initiative at last year’s retreat. “We met with Carrie StanleyDavis as a representative of the Hilliard EverGreen Team and had

posed an initial question to them,” Sciotto said. “Did they want to continue in their separate capacity, or did they want to merge these two efforts?” Stanley-Davis said the EverGreen Team was a project of the Leadership Hilliard development program.

GOP committee decides not to endorse for council “My impression is that the members of the Central Committee in Hilliard deKunze and Brad Sinnott, chairman of cided not to endorse, believing that there the Republican Central Committee in was a strong field,” Sinnott said. However, the committee did unaniFranklin County, both said it’s not unusual mously endorse Don Schonhardt for reto not endorse a candidate for council.

8-11 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 26) at the Makoy Center. “There’s still an opportunity, I suppose, for somebody to challenge me in the fall,” Schonhardt said. Although he may not need the funds

raised from the breakfast for this election, Schonhardt said fundraisers are something that politicians do. When asked if he might seek higher office in the future, Schonhardt replied, “never say never.”

Continued from page A1 around, but he’s the only original within the group right now.” Cupcake Yum.Yum started eight years ago. Prior to that, Kilzer worked at Handke’s Cuisine, did a lot of catering and made wedding cakes. “Then I got married and had kids, and I was thinking these wedding cakes are huge. They take hours and hours – I better do something else. We got down to three-inch cupcakes that were really huge and cool-looking, but people wouldn’t finish them. So we finally ended up at the mini-appetizersize cupcakes. That works really well, especially for special events. I think we found our niche.” Cupcake Yum.Yum’s products are all natural and organic, Kilzer said. “We use a lot of local farmers. We want local, fresh, ripe berries, and we’ve been scouting for the best butter we can find. We really go into detail about what ingredients we use because of so many preservatives and chemicals. We just thought, if we’re going to do this, we’re going to do it right.” Baking is a science, Kilzer said, and that her variations of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were the most challenging for her to perfect. “When we have a new recipe and it’s not working, it can drive you crazy! You’re like, what is wrong with this?” The cupcakes are made either in Kilzer’s home, or at a commercial kitchen in Dublin, but she is looking for a production facility in Hilliard. She’s recently did a pop-up, selling her products at Kitamu Coffee on Hilliard-Rome Road. “I think it’s good because it brings in more walk-in traffic for the actual retail space. I know with Kitamu Coffee, he had the highest numbers he’s ever had. That’s what we’re going to continue to do each month, is pop into a retail space.” Kilzer said she gets help from her husband Paul Kilzer, as well as some of her brothers. “It’s become a wonderful family business, which I love.” From 6-9 p.m. Tuesday (March 1), people can sample some of Kilzer’s cupcakes (and many other types of cakes) at the “Cakes for a Cause” contest at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, 3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City. Tickets cost $27, with the proceeds going to the Foodbank and Operation Feed. “It’s a great cause,” Kilzer said. “Anyone who’s a fan of cake should definitely come. We’re definitely going to enter our bacon, and our coconut is one of our most popular flavors.” For more information, visit cakesforacause2011.eventbrite. com or cupcakeyumyum.com.

“Typically, you’ll find them more in the 300-500 range, maybe even 750, as far as residents.” Plans were to have 2,200 people living at 1,500 regular units and 250 assisted living and full care units at Hickory Chase.

Council is expected to screen applicants at a committee meeting Feb. 28.

Despite Hickory Chase’s closure, Hilliard “protected itself from all the downside risk,” Meeks said. Schonhardt has cited $17-million in road improvements in the area of the development. However, it is to the city’s benefit to see Hickory Chase occupied, and Hilliard can change the zoning somewhat for a potential

buyer, but kids would not be permitted. “We’ve got some nice interest in the property, so we’re very encouraged there that as soon as they’re able to get everything lined up so they can actually entertain a sale, that we’ll have a buyer,” Meeks said. “I know that the banks have heard from more than a dozen folks that have an interest in it. I’m hoping that in 30-60 days we’ll start to see some movement, and we’ll start to see some people going through the buildings. It’s just all those parts, with the liens and everything else. You have to work through all that be-

fore they can actually do all the marketing, and it looks like that’s painfully slow.” “We have been meeting with the banks,” said Mayor Don Schonhardt, and more are planned. “We finally got them to sit down with us and talk about what they were doing and where they felt things were. I think we’re all just trying to get our feet grounded in precisely what the remaining issues are, and what we need to do to move towards marketing the facility.” Calls to lead bank Key Bank and receiver Continental Real Estate were not returned.

Potholes proving to be ‘bigger problem than normal’ By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Potholes are a byproduct of bad winters, and Hilliard’s crews are working to repair them on a daily basis, according to public service director Clyde Seidle. “It’s been an unusual winter,” Seidle said. “We typically have potholes after winter, but it’s just not as severe as what we’ve had this year.” Seidle recently told city council that his crews will work hard to patch pot-

holes along hard-hit places like Alton & Darby Creek and Cosgray roads. It’s not anything they wouldn’t normally do, he said. “It is a bigger problem than normal,” Seidle said. “Because of the level of the temperatures and things like that, and the refreeze-thaw cycle, when you have ice that’s there melting in between the cracks, it’s kind of like the perfect storm for potholes.” Seidle said there are two ways to patch a pothole – hot or cold method. The hot asphalt involves cleaning out the pot-

hole and putting hot asphalt and limestone in place. The cold patch is another common method – the hole is cleaned and a bag of the cold patch is poured in. It can be used in any weather. “It doesn’t have to have heat that comes out of the back of a hot mix truck,” Seidle said of the cold patch. “It’s not any different than you see in other communities. Everybody’s using the same type of strategies. Larger communities have things where they have a heat welder, and we don’t have anything like that.” Although he and city crews are on the

lookout for potholes, Seidle wants citizens to report them, too, by calling the city at 614-876-7361 or by using the city’s online service request center at hilliardohio.gov. “If we someone calls us and says there’s a pothole on such and such street, we go out investigate if it’s something we need to do immediately or it can be put into the normal routine of when we go out to patch potholes. If it’s deep enough to cause damage, then we get somebody out immediately. That’s when they typically have cold patch.”

Although the pothole patchwork in winter is nothing new for Hilliard, sending out chipper crews this time of year is, thanks to an ice storm that happened at the end of January and the beginning of February. “This could go on another 3-4 weeks,” Seidle said of the chipper service. “Normally we start our weekly passes in the early spring, when people are doing their yard (work). It’s not typical for a winter here in Ohio.” gbudzak@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Residents can choose from three fun fundraisers By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Three future fundraising events in Hilliard will help support educational efforts in different ways. The Hilliard Kiwanis Club’s annual spaghetti dinner, is set for 47:30 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 26) in the Phyllis A. Ernst Senior Center, 3810 Veterans Memorial Dr. Admission is $7, or $4 ages 3-12, children under 3 free. A silent auction will take place. Proceeds will support the Hilliard Kiwanis Scholarship Fund for all three high schools. Kiwanian Don Parker said part of the appeal of the event is former

Hilliard Police Chief Rodney Garnett’s spaghetti sauce. “We call it Rod’s secret sauce because he puts a combination of herbs in his cooked-from-scratch tomato sauce that he won’t even share with anybody,” Parker said. “It is very good, I’ll tell you that.” Salad, garlic bread, dessert and beverages will also be provided. The next weekend, from noon6 p.m. March 5, will be the second year for a chili cook-off at the Joint Safety Services Building, 5171 Northwest Parkway. People can enter the contest ahead of time for $10, or sample the chili. Admission is $5-$7. The Hilliard Police

Department and the Norwich Township Fire Department are putting on the event with the Columbus College of Art and Design’s Art Explorer Post 407, which will create artwork for the lobby of the Services Building by year’s end. One of the 35 pots of chili cooked last year was by Officer Hyda Slone, who won for the tastiest entry. She wouldn’t divulge the ingredients. “Are you kidding? I don’t want the fire department to get my secret recipe!” For more information or advance tickets, visit Flyers Pizza, 5466 Roberts Rd. The Hilliard Education Foun-

dation will hold its Mardi Gras Masquerade at 6:30 p.m. March 5 in the Makoy Center, 5462 Center St. Tickets, $40, will support annual grants for teachers and staff in the Hilliard school district. “That program’s been around for 20-plus years,” said HEF president Christy Farnbauch. “We have funded author/artist visits and purchased some technology equip-

ment like smart boards, document cameras and iPods, with the ultimate goal of helping learning be interesting and meaningful for children. There are things that really aren’t in the district’s budget.” Hors d’oeuvres will be served. There is a cash bar and a Mardi Gras king and queen will be selected (although the dress is casual). However, the main appeal of

the event is its casino night, with play money issued for blackjack, craps and roulette. “It’s kind of a fun way for people to learn games they might not know,” Farnbauch said. “There’s no big thing you can lose here.” For tickets or more information, call 614-777-2222 extension 4333, or visit www.hilliardeducationfoundation.org.

Industry made slow but steady progress in the city In the years before the beginning of the American Civil War in 1861, Columbus, the capital of the state of Ohio, was more than the symbolic center of state power and authority. Created by the Ohio General Assembly to be the new capital city in ED 1812, the town LENTZ had grown very slowly at first and as late as 1830, only had little more than 2,000 residents. Then the National Road and Ohio Canal reached central Ohio and by 1834, Columbus was a city of 5,000 people. But even that new and bustling city seemed to make most of its money in transportation and trade. Reading of the men who were the early successes in Columbus enterprise, one comes away with the distinct impression that the best way to earn money was to serve the Ohio General Assembly with room and board, move people and products from place to place, or meet the needs of the people who did such things. A few examples might suffice to illustrate this point. William Neil came to Columbus in 1818 and soon got into the stagecoach business. Leaving his wife to run a small tavern across from the Statehouse, Neil would eventually build an empire on wheels and become known as the “Stagecoach King.” Lincoln Goodale was a practicing physician who found that there was not a lot of demand for doctors in the new town. He eventually opened a store and made a lot of money. As a gesture of gratitude to his adopted town, he gave Columbus its first park — Goodale Park. And then there was Alfred Kelley. Representing Cleveland and then Columbus in the legislature, Kelley also found time to ensure the completion of the Ohio Canal, the reform of Ohio’s banks and the construction of more than one railroad. If we add to these examples the stories of bankers such as David Deshler and lawyers such as Orris Parish, one might conclude that Columbus was a place where people made their money providing services rather than making things. And this would be true — but only partly true. Like most capital cities across America, most of the economic history of the city is the story of a highly diversified economy with some people working in government, others in trade and still others in transportation. And composing another significant part of the workforce were people employed in manufacturing. When Columbus was an isolated frontier village, many of the goods people needed and could not make themselves were purchased from local craftsmen — the blacksmith, the gunsmith, the miller and that old frontier standby, the whisky distiller. But with the arrival of the Ohio Canal in the 1830s and railroads in the 1850s, it became possible to import raw materials such as iron and timber to a central place like Columbus and ship finished products from that place to a waiting world. It was not long before a number of people began to do just

that. Most early factories in Columbus were relatively small in size and employed dozens rather than hundreds of workers in a few sturdy buildings. It was no accident that most of them soon came to be located near a ready source of water — the Scioto River. The kind of products made by these early factories says something about the needs of the people of central Ohio. The oldest successful manufacturing company in Columbus was begun in 1822 by a man named Joseph Ridgway. Initially using horses to provide power to his foundry, Ridgway began to produce Jethro Wood’s Patent Plow. It was later said of Ridgway by a local writer in the 1850s that “… he made and sold an immense number. It was considered the best plow in use.” In 1830, Ridgway joined with a nephew to finance the conversion of his factory to steam power and begin the production of machinery, steam engines, cast iron stoves and other products. In 1849, the Ridgways joined with a man named Pearl Kimball in a new business making railroad cars. Joseph Ridgway died in 1850 and Kimball later operated the car company on his own. Ridgway’s foundry business passed in 1854 to another entrepreneur, Peter Hayden. Hayden had come to Columbus in the 1830s and begun a number of enterprises. He started a business making saddles and other equipment for horses, using the labor of prisoners at the nearby Ohio Penitentiary. At the same time, he opened his own foundry producing bar iron, hoop iron and wire from pig iron and scrap iron. Eventually, Hayden and his family would also invest heavily in the coal and iron fields of southeastern Ohio. In 1838, John Gill and others built Gill’s Foundry with about 25 workers on the west side of

the Scioto and developed a good business making stoves and other iron goods. In 1855, the company began making a combination steel plow that sold quite well and later began making railroad cars as well. In 1849, Charles Ambos and James Lennox started the Eagle Foundry with $8,000. When the business was sold in 1854, the foundry became a joint stock company under the name of the Columbus Machine Manufacturing Co. Employing more than 125 men, it provided the iron for the roof of the new Statehouse as well as all of the iron ceilings and railings in the building. And while all of this was going on, other factories were making other sorts of goods. Two men named Brotherlin and Halm began producing chairs and cabinetware by steam-powered machinery in 1853. Another company began making wooden hollowware — tubs and pails, primarily — in a factory along the river in 1856. By 1858, there were others. A local description reported that they included Ohlen and Drake’s steam-powered saw factory, Hines and Miller’s steam-powered paper mill, and Butlers’ coffee- and spice-grinding mill. And almost as an afterthought, the author noted that there were “two extensive breweries at the south end of the city.” All of these enterprises contributed importantly to the success of Columbus. In all, they employed several hundred men, many of them recent immigrants from Ireland and Germany who worked alongside recent arrivals — black and white — from rural Ohio. These new factories formed the beginnings of industry in Columbus and a pattern of industrial growth and success that has continued to the present day. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

‘Duel at Darby’ to feature running and bicycling By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The “Duel at Darby” is on and is set for April 10 at Hilliard Darby High School. This duel is a duathlon, an event that combines running and bicycling. Entrants can compete in a sprint duathlon, which is a 5k run, a 15.4 mile bike ride, followed by another 5k run; an Olympic duathlon, which is a 5k run, 30.8 mile bike ride, 10k run. Those who prefer to run can do a 5k (3.1 mile) or 10k (6.2 mile) run. “We don’t have water that’s readily available this early in the year,” said Carla Sokol, race organizer and the owner of Events Plus Racing. “For those of us that are triathletes, let’s do an early season duathlon because we’re chomping at the bit to get out and do something, so this is your first early season race.” Sokol, a triathlete, said she frequently bikes in Hilliard along the Heritage Rail Trail, and thought it would work for hosting a duathlon. “It seems that a lot of events that take place are not near home; you have to drive an hour,” Sokol said. “If we can do it someplace nearby, and showcase a nice area, that would be great.” The race starts and finishes in the Darby parking lot, with the run along the Rail Trail to the turnaround point at Hayden Run Rd., with the transition to the bike from Darby onto Leppert Rd. and looping around Scioto Darby Rd. with turns on Amity, Roberts and Walker roads. The race starts at 7:30 a.m. and the course will

close at noon. Steve Mazer, director of recreation and parks, said Sokol contacted him a month ago and asked if Hilliard would be interested in setting up the duathlon. “I said absolutely, and with Police Chief Doug Francis, Fire Chief David Long and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, we were all able to sit down at the table and work out all the details,” Mazer said. “Hopefully this will be a great annual event.” Mayor Don Schonhardt said there used to be a corporate-sponsored spring run in Hilliard, and hopes the duathlon will replace it. Mazer said his department has sponsored 5ks in the past, but never has worked anything as large as a duathlon that may draw 500 entrants. “Our portion is to help them get the course set up, getting volunteers for whatever the event coordinator needs, and then making sure the police and fire fighters will be there to help out as well,” Mazer said. “Oftentimes, they’re looking for new and different activities to put on their calendar, and if I can help them with that, terrific,” Sokol said. “I think that Steve and everybody in Hilliard has been absolutely wonderful, and they’re so excited about it, which makes it that much easier for me to do.” Sokol said she’ll need 120 volunteers to help out, including registration, aid stations, course marshals, transition and finish line assistance. Volunteers will receive a t-shirt. For more information, call Sokol at 614-488-8001 or visit www.eventsplusracing.com.

Tuition and fees deduction WASHINGTON — You may be able to deduct qualified education expenses paid during the year for yourself, your spouse or your dependent. You cannot claim this deduction if your filing status is married filing separately, or if another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. The qualified expenses must be for higher education. The tuition and fees deduction can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $4,000. This deduction, reported on Form 8917, Tuition and Fees Deduction, is taken as an adjustment to income. This means you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). This deduction may be beneficial to you if, for example, you cannot take the lifetime learning credit because your income is too high. You may be able to take one of the education credits for your education expenses instead of a tuition and fees deduction. You can choose the one that will give you the lower tax. Generally, you can claim the tuition and fees deduction if all three of the following requirements are met: • You pay qualified education expenses of higher education. • You pay the education expenses for an eligible student. • The eligible student is yourself, your spouse, or your dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. You cannot claim the tuition and fees deduction if any of the following apply: •Your filing status is married filing separately. • Another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. You cannot take the deduction even if the other person does not actually claim that exemption. • Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is more than $80,000 ($160,000 if filing a joint return). • You were a nonresident alien for any part of the year and did not elect to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes. More information on nonresident aliens can be found in Publication 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens. • You or anyone else claims an education credit for expenses of the student for whom the qualified education expenses were paid. Student-activity fees and expenses for course-related books, supplies and equipment are included in qualified education expenses only if the fees and expenses must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance.

Community news Miracle Children shown in ad On Valentine’s Day, Nationwide Children’s Hospital unveiled a multistory wallscape advertisement in downtown Columbus featuring seven local “miracle” children who have received treatment at the hospital. The 150-feet tall wallscape, on the Atlas Building on E. Long St., was donated by Nationwide Insurance and will be on view until fall. The “Miracle 7” are: • Savanna Bartley, 7, from Pickerington (on the teeter-totter, right), received treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia; • Rylan Bell, 2, from Reynoldsburg (playing on the grass), who was born 19 weeks premature and weighed a pound; • Lucas Byers, 7, from Hilliard (on the monkey bars), who raised money from a lemonade stand as a way to thank the hospital for successful brain surgery on his sister Sophie; • Anna Hahn, 8, from Upper Arlington (on the teeter-totter), who received treatment for asthma and a collapsed lung; • Alison Hile, 10, from Hilliard (on the swing), cystic fibrosis; • PJ Lavette, 5, from Marion (on the swing), Type I diabetes; • Ian Sanchez, 5, from Washington Court House (on the slide), heart transplant; Members of the community can help Nationwide Children’s gen-

Hilliard Davidson Student of the Month: Carissa Zorich Presented by: David Stanley - Nationwide Insurance

Hilliard Davidson’s pick for this month’s outstanding student is senior Carissa Zorich. Carissa is involved in many activities such as French Club, Freshman Focus Leader, Yearbook and band. Carissa is a squad leader in marching band, which is her favorite activity. When she was asked why band is her favorite she said, “I love the fact that we are all a family. Having to spend so much time together over the years has brought the band closer.” Carissa is a very kindhearted, passionate person, and is not afraid to admit that her mom, Linda, is her best friend. Linda is very proud of her daughter for developing in to the woman she has become in terms of character and personality; she says Carissa is a very strong, independent person who works hard at everything. When Carissa was searching for a job, she was persistent and found one at Graeter’s Ice Cream. Even though she does not particularly enjoy having to work, she has stuck with it doing the best she can. Ms. Ciancio, one of Carissa’s favorite teachers, has nothing but wonderful things to say about Carissa. “Carissa is always well behaved and conscientious in class, but that’s only half the story. She is full of fun and wit and draws others to her with her humor, grasp of subject matter and sense of collegiality”. This is just another reason why Carissa was chosen as Davidson’s outstanding Student of the Month. After graduation Carissa plans on attending Miami University to study education and aspires to be a high school math teacher. With all the hard work she puts into school now, her work ethic will continue to help her fulfill her dreams. Written by: Sara Kassicieh

Davidson girls must rely on stout defense By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hilliard Davidson High School girls basketball team cruised to a 5033 victory over Groveport in its Division I district tournament opener Feb. 19 at Olentangy. The 12th-seeded Wildcats raced out to an 11-0 lead and built a 30-5 halftime advantage en route to their first postseason victory since 2008. “Our defensive pressure in the first half made the difference,” coach Jill Taylor said. “We tried full-court pres-

sure and threw some traps at them, and we forced them to throw the ball away, which led to some scoring opportunities for us, too.” But even though the Wildcats have won nine of their past 10 games, Taylor said it will take a tremendous amount of effort and focus to continue winning in the tournament. Davidson plays Dublin Jerome in the second round at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at Olentangy. The winner faces topseeded Reynoldsburg or Columbus West in a district semifinal at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 2, at Olentangy Liberty.

The district final will be played at 7 p.m. March 5 at Liberty. Jerome beat New Albany 40-33 on Feb. 19 to improve to 12-8, as 5-foot8 senior guard Brooke Carrel and 510 sophomore guard Kaitlin Miller both scored 11 points. “The seeding and records don’t matter at this point,” Taylor said. “We’ve seen Dublin Jerome this year and they’re a very good team. A lot of people have been contributing for us, and we’ll need for that to continue to keep winning.” Madie Long leads Davidson in scor-

ing average at 9.8 points per game, followed by Lauren Bates (9.3), Maddison Blackwell (6.6), Katie Dymek (6.5), Samantha Bradway (5.4), Ashley Hurt (3.8) and Ashley Weethee (3.4). In order to stand a chance against Jerome and a juggernaut such as Reynoldsburg, Taylor said her squad must continue to play stout man-toman defense. Reynoldsburg routed Chillicothe 945 on Feb. 19 to improve to 20-1, as 56 junior guard Aliyah Zantt scored 18 points, 5-6 junior guard Adesuwa Aideyman scored 13 and 5-9 sophomore for-

ward Shiloh Murphy scored 10. “I’m confident in our defense,” Taylor said. “Sometimes shots don’t fall, but defense is just a matter of work. I’m happy with our defensive effort in the first half (against Groveport), but I’m not happy with the way we let down in the second half. “We can’t afford to do that in the tournament.” The Wildcats had a relatively easy time defending against Groveport, which dressed only seven players after See WILDCATS, page B4

Commentary

Darby’s Parsley eager for district One of the most exciting events of the year will unfold on Saturday, Feb. 26, at Worthington Kilbourne High School when the district gymnastics meet takes place. It is a showcase for talented athletes who combine mental toughness with physical LARRY strength and LARSON agility in an attempt to qualify for the state meet March 4-5 at Hilliard Bradley. As usual, central Ohio is blessed with some outstanding young gymnasts like freshmen Colleen McHugh of Olentangy and Becca Jaskot of Upper Arlington. Sophomores Kate Miltko of DeSales and Amelia Holt of Centerburg have great credentials, as do junior standouts Erica Rodriguez of Worthington Kilbourne and Hannah Ruddle of Dublin Jerome. Then there is the class of the senior class, Meghan Parsley of Hilliard Darby, who will try to earn a second consecutive trip to state. “I really love competing at the district meet,” Parsley said. “I truly enjoy being with all the best gymnasts in our area and I truly enjoy watching them compete. I feel very confident going into this competition. “My mental attitude has certainly changed a lot since I was a freshman. I was always super hard on myself when I was younger and sometimes let mistakes get to me when I was competing. Now, I know you have to be totally focused on what you are doing, be yourself and overcome the ups and downs that happen when you are performing. That whole attitude has simply come through maturity.” Discussing the physical side of gymnastics, Parsley said, “I really love the difficulty of gymnastics. The sport is so hard and requires so much hard work. My goal is always to achieve perfection and I know I may never achieve that, but the drive to reach my goals hooks me every time. “I have basically spent my entire life with this sport. My mom was a part owner of a gym when I was little and I started competitive gymnastics when I was in the fourth grade. I practice very, very hard and I believe I get the most out of my practices. I believe that, as a senior, I have the right attitude toward my sport. You absolutely cannot be hesitant. You have to constantly be aggressive and push yourself to succeed in learning new skills. “My older sister, Amber, who is a gymnast at Ohio State, and my mom have been a great support system for me as I have developed. They both understand what I am going through and have constantly given me good advice. They have been great and the work ethic I have learned from

Panthers boys upend Wildcats By SCOTT HENNEN

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It proved to be a memorable night for the Hilliard Darby High School boys basketball team. The Panthers not only got the chance to go through the pomp of pregame ceremonies on Feb. 19, but they had a raucous student section feeding them energy in a 50-47 win over Hilliard Davidson. “It was something, knowing that this would be the last time we would be playing on this court,” said senior guard Matt Cyrus, who scored 16 points to lead the Panthers. “The fans were great. It’s been a fast senior year and (was) an emotional game.” Brothers Brennan and Bryson Hook both scored eight points as Darby won its second consecutive game to close the regular season at 7-12 overall.

GIRLS •Record: 4-17 overall, 3-11 (seventh) in OCCCentral •Seniors lost: None •Key returnees: Annie Hilditch, Emily Krumpe, Sydney Palsgrove and Bri Rispress

The game was tied at 20 at halftime and Davidson seemed to seize control with a 36-28 lead entering the final period. But the Panthers outscored the Wildcats 2211 in the fourth quarter behind 10 points from Cyrus. Darby avenged a 52-45 loss to Davidson on Jan. 14. “It was a lot like the last game in that we played them well in the first half and then let them back in the game,” said guard Matt Allen, who added seven points. “But the seniors stepped up and made plays

down the stretch. “It felt good coming out and winning like that on senior night and winning on our home court, especially against Davidson. It really meant a lot because of who we were playing.” Upper Arlington and Dublin Coffman tied for the OCC-Central Division title at 13-0 followed by Thomas Worthington (9-5) and Davidson (7-7). Darby and Worthington Kilbourne tied for fifth at 5-9, and Central Crossing and Westland both went 2-12. The Panthers played Olentangy Liberty on Feb. 23 in the opening round of the Division I district tournament. The winner plays Dublin Jerome or Delaware in the second round at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at Jonathan Alder. Delaware went 14-6 in the regular season and did not play Darby. Jerome was 7-13 in the regular season and beat Darby

49-37 on Dec. 30. The second-round winner plays second-seeded Northland, Groveport or Franklin Heights at 4:15 p.m. March 5 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. •The girls team finished 4-17 overall after losing to eighth-seeded Newark 4432 in the first round of the Division I district tournament Feb. 16 at Olentangy. The Panthers led 27-25 entering the final period. “We tried to stress defense and take away their inside game and double down on (6-foot-4 sophomore) Paige Cashin,” said second-year coach Liz Lehman, whose Panthers limited Cashin to eight points. “We played well, but we got tired in the fourth quarter. They weren’t the No. 8 team in the district for nothing. They took advantage of us and we looked tired.” See PANTHERS, page B2

Wrestling

Wildcats send six sectional champs to district meet By JEREMY STEWART ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Hilliard Davidson High School wrestling team has a chance to win the Division I district tournament for the second time in three years after advancing 10 wrestlers from the Marysville sectional. “Overall, we wrestled well,” said coach Dominic DiSabato, whose team scored 239.5 points to win the sectional ahead of runner-up Marysville (219.5) on Feb. 19. “We had a couple of guys that on paper weren’t expected to make it through. That was good to see.” Two of the Wildcats’ pleasant See LARSON, page B4 surprises were Trent Gill at 103

pounds and Nick Lawler at 130. Both placed fourth and will making their first appearances at district on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 25-26, at Hilliard Darby. With six wrestlers making it to a championship final at sectional, Davidson should be set up for a strong district tournament. Reaching a championship match in a sectional means a wrestler opens the district tournament against a lower placer from another sectional. Those six — Jacob Davis (112), Chase Delande (145), Angelo DiSabato (119), Nolan Gill (140) Eric Hoffman (125) and Alex Mickley (152) — not only reached the finals, but won them. Kyle Ehrhardt (160) and Mar-

Davidson’s Eric Hoffman (top) was one of six Wildcats to win a sectional championship on Feb. 19 at Marysville. Hoffman won at 125 pounds. Also winning were Jacob Davis (112), Chase Delande (145), Angelo DiSabato (119), Nolan Gill (140) and Alex Mickley (152).

shall Knoch (215) were third. The top four in each weight class at district advance to the state meet March 3-5 at Ohio State. DiSabato, Delande, Gill and Mickley are seeking return trips to state. A year ago, the Wildcats sent eight wrestlers to the district tournament and scored 85 points to finish fourth behind champion Marysville (188.5).

•Darby advanced six to the district tournament as it placed fourth (127.5) at the Marysville sectional. “Six is a decent number,” coach Brendan Moody said. “We would have liked to have a couple more, but the kids that came out wrestled hard.” One of the biggest wins for the Panthers in the sectional came from Matthew Walker

over Watkins Memorial’s Joey Cameron in a consolation semifinal at 152. With a 32-2 record entering the sectional, Cameron was as a favorite to advance to district. Walker beat him 12-4 to secure a spot in a third-place match, where he lost to Marysville’s Tyler Miller 9-1 to place fourth. See WRESTLING, page B2

Consistency sparked surge by Bradley boys By BRAD EMERINE

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

It was mid-January when coach Michael Limbird felt a shift with his Hilliard Bradley High School boys basketball team. “I think the turning point was beating Worthington Kilbourne (63-49 on Jan. 12) because that was the first game that we were able to put four solid quarters together,” said Limbird, whose team went 7-4 from that point to improve to 9-11 entering the first round of the Division II district tournament against 11th-seeded Bexley on Feb. 22. “We had played well at times, but we hadn’t gotten much consistency, so you never knew what was going to happen. We began to limit our turnovers and we began to rebound much better as a team. “Trent Weaver has been great rebounding all season, but when we got Jacob Starinsky and Jerry Briggs in there it began to come together. Then we’ve also been able to get our guards, specifically Evan Bell, to stick their noses in there to win some 50-50 rebounds. With our defense being solid,

Below are the recent results and coming schedules for the Hilliard Bradley boys and girls basketball teams: BOYS *Feb. 18 — Defeated Watkins Memorial 8558 in regular-season finale. Trent Weaver (17), Jerry Briggs (15), Evan Bell (14), A.J. Dixon (11) and Jacob Starinsky (11) reached double digits in scoring. Feb. 22 — Played Bexley in first round of Division II district tournament. The winner plays Olentangy or Hamilton Township, 8 p.m. Feb. 25 at Grove City.

if we can limit teams to one shot, it starts our transition game. But if we allow offensive rebounds, it leads directly to easy stick backs.” In a 63-46 win over Olentangy Orange on Feb. 11, Briggs had 12 rebounds and the defense limited the Pioneers’ outside shooting and offen-

sive rebounding. The Jaguars had one consistency hiccup during their hot stretch, as they blew a big lead against Mount Vernon in a 67-64 loss on Feb. 4. Bradley was outscored 31-13 in the fourth quarter. It was a flashback to the inconsistency in the first half of the season,

All but Bowens and Longwell are seeking a return trip to state. •Bradley has six representatives at the Division II district meet at Columbus East on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 25-26. The Jaguars placed third at a home sectional on Feb. 19 behind champion Olentangy (292) and Jonathan Alder (199). Conor Driscoll (145), Andrew Higgins (152) and Austin Johnston (135) won sectional titles. Ricky McGrath (171), Devin Wohrle (130) and Jake Zoller (140) all placed second. Zoller is the lone first-time district qualifier. The others helped Bradley score 39 points at district last year to tie Big Walnut for 20th behind champion Olentangy (135.5). Higgins was Bradley’s lone state qualifier. Bradley also has several district alternates in Hunter Kidd (189), Tyler Kidd (heavyweight), Ryan McGrath (119), Sam Riggs (160) and Devon Smith (215). They all placed fifth and could receive an opportunity to compete should a district qualifier pull out before the tournament begins. “We had a great semifinal round advancing six wrestlers to the championship match,” coach John Riggs said. “We lost some very tough matches in the consolation semifinals, but to those kids’ credit they finished the tournament very strong, winning all five fifth-place matches.”

Below are the sectional results for the Bradley, Darby and Davidson wrestling teams: BRADLEY Feb. 19 — Finished third (186.5) in 13-team Division II sectional at home behind champion Olentangy (292) and Jonathan Alder (199).

PANTHERS Continued from page B1

Sydney Palsgrove, a 5-7 sophomore guard, averaged 3.2 rebounds and led the team in free-throw percentage by making 34 of 54 (63 percent). “We have a good group of juniors who are ready to lead us in the offseason and come back strong as seniors,” Lehman said. Other juniors expected to return are Nettie Benjamin (5-7 forward), Molly Bretz (5-8 forward), Alex Hoferkamp (5-6 guard) and Audrie Wolfe (5-6 guard). Sophomores expected back are Katie Espisito (5-6 guard) and Aaris Sheets (5-10 forward). Freshmen seeing varsity time included Erika Boyd (5-7 guard), Gabby Sarbaugh (5-7 forward) and Caitlyn Snyder (5-8 guard). “They came into the season needing to learn about the varsity experience,” Lehman said. “They needed to understand the level of competition and the speed of the game. It probably took 10 games to learn that and their roles were in flux at the beginning of the year. They understood what they were supposed to be doing more at the end of the year.”

Annie Hilditch, a 5-6 junior guard, led the Panthers with 11 points and three 3-pointers, and 511 sophomore forward Emily Krumpe added 10 points. Darby went 3-11 in the OCC-Central to finish seventh behind champion UA (13-1), Coffman (11-3), Davidson (10-4), Thomas (9-5) and Central Crossing and Kilbourne (both 5-9), and ahead of Westland (0-14). Darby had no seniors and expects to return its entire roster next season. Krumpe, the only player with much varsity experience entering this season, led the team in scoring at 6.8 points per game and added 3.9 rebounds per contest. She shot 62-for-150 from the field (41.3 percent). Hilditch scored 6.3 points per game and was 30 of 99 on 3-point attempts (30.3 percent). Bri Rispress, a 5-10 junior forward, added 5.4 points a game and led the team in rebounding at 6.2 per contest. She was 44 of 109 from the field (40.4 percent) and 26 of 47 at the free-throw line (55.3 shennen@thisweeknews.com percent). www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Swimming & Diving

Jaguars’ Goldsmith, Wildcats’ Behrent head to state By PAUL BATTERSON

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Hilliard Bradley High School junior swimmer Kaitlyn Goldsmith is getting a little tired of racing against her friend, Granville’s Lori Davis. Davis placed first in the 50yard freestyle (24.27 seconds) at the Division II district meet Feb. 18 at Ohio State, edging Goldsmith, who was second in 24.97. Last year, the two tied for fourth for the last automatic statemeet qualifying spot in the 50 free with a time of 24.97. The two had to compete in a swimoff, and Goldsmith edged Davis by .04 of a second with a 24.84. “(Davis) is really nice, but there are times when I go, ‘Hey, I just want to beat you. Come on,’” Goldsmith said with a laugh. Goldsmith could get more chances to race against Davis when the two compete at the Division II state meet, which began Feb. 23 and concludes Friday, Feb. 25, at Canton’s C.T. Branin Natatorium. Davis is seeded sixth and Goldsmith is 21st in the 50 free. The swimming preliminaries will be held Thursday, Feb. 24, with the top 16 finishers in each event advancing to the finals the next day. Goldsmith, who placed 24th at state in the 50 free (25.38) last year, said it will take a perfect race to make the final.

Below are the state qualifiers with district result and state seed for the Bradley, Darby and Davidson boys and girls swimming and diving teams: BRADLEY Boys — None; Girls — Kaitlyn Goldsmith: 50 free (24.97, second, 21st) Others who competed at district: Boys — Jon Satre: 200 free (1:50.78, seventh), 100 back (58.43, eighth); Girls — Delaney Banda: 100 free (1:01.7, 29th), 100 back (1:05.78, 12th); Maggie Brown: 100 back (1:09.96, 26th); Shea Driscoll: 200 free (2:11.87, ninth), 500 free (6:01.86, 20th); Goldsmith: 100 free (55.0, seventh); Maddie McDonald: 100 free (1:00.76, 24th), 200 IM (2:44.42, 28th); 200 medley relay (2:03.01, 11th); 200 free relay 1:46.85, seventh); 400 free relay (4:08.69, 12th) DARBY Boys — None; Girls — None Others who competed at district: Boys — Alex Bean: 50 free (22.35, 11th), 100 free (49.46, 12th); Hunter Cook: 200 free (1:47.16, seventh), 500 free (4:44.41, fourth);

“There are still things I need to fix,” Goldsmith said. “I need to work on my turn.” “She’ll tell you she floated a turn, but any time you make the state meet, you had a good swim,” Bradley coach Brian Dickmann said. “She told me after the warmups she was having trouble with the turn. So you know that was in her mind. She just has to concentrate and not worry about it next week.” The Bradley girls finished ninth at district (82 points) behind champion Granville (368). The Jaguars boys tied AmandaClearcreek for 25th (23) behind champion Granville (256.5). Goldsmith was seventh in the 100 free (55.0) and joined Mad-

Sam Dignan: 50 free (23.08, 23rd), 500 free (4:59.32, 13th); Cory McLaughlin: 200 IM (2:15.70, 30th), 500 free (5:19.31, 27th); 200 medley relay (1:45.06, 10th); 200 free relay (1:43.91, 23rd); 400 free relay (3:23.93, 10th); Girls — Alex Caruthers: 500 free (5:49.58, 25th), 100 breast (1:15.44, 23rd); 400 free relay (4:09.30, 21st) DAVIDSON Boys — None; Girls — Sarah Behrent: 100 fly (58.47, seventh, 23rd) Others who competed at district: Boys — Vince Gill: 100 breast (1:00.42, fifth), 200 IM (2:01.09, ninth); Joe Stewart: 100 free (51.08, 24th), 200 free (1:52.60, 19th); 200 medley relay (2:05.59, 25th); 200 free relay (1:47.39, 26th); 400 free relay (3:39.99, 20th); Girls — Behrent: 100 free (54.87, 11th), 100 fly (58.47, seventh, 23rd); Erin Brooks: 100 back (59.72, ninth); Megan Schmalenberger: 100 free (56.05, 17th), 100 fly (1:01.95, 19th); Ellie Symes: 100 back (1:07.21, 30th); Megan Wittman: 200 free (2:02.87, 16th), 500 free (5:32.51, 17th); 200 medley relay (1:53.47, 10th), 200 free relay (1:53.31, 21st); 400 free relay (3:42.22, eighth)

die McDonald, Shea Driscoll and Rebecca Woodson in a seventhplace finish in the 200 free relay (1:46.85). Jon Satre, the lone boys entrant for the Jaguars, placed seventh in the 200 free (1:50.78) and eighth in the 100 backstroke (58.43). •Despite finishing seventh in the 100 butterfly (58.47) at district, Davidson junior Sarah Behrent was able to sneak into the Division I state meet. She is seeded 23rd overall. Pickerington Central’s Maddie Martin, the defending state champion, is seeded first (55.11). “In my 12 years in coaching in Hilliard, Sarah is the first girl to make it to the Division I state

meet,” said Dickmann, who coaches all three teams. “So for her to make it is quite an accomplishment. She’s been swimming on an injured shoulder all year, so she’s been swimming in pain the entire season. That just speaks volumes on her work ethic.” In the girls district meet on Feb. 19 at Ohio State, Davidson was 13th (68) behind champion Upper Arlington (505) and Darby didn’t score. In the boys competition, Darby was 11th (70) and Davidson was 20th (19) behind champion UA (432.5). In Division I, the top three swimmers in each event and the top four divers at district ad-

vanced to state Thursday, Feb. 24, through Saturday, Feb. 26, at Branin Natatorium. Additionally, 11 at-large berths were given in each swimming event based on times statewide. At district, the Wildcats girls team reached the awards podium three times but only should have made it twice. Sophomore Erin Brooks was called up by mistake after placing ninth in the 100 back (59.72). The awards podium is reserved for the top eight finishers. “I was getting into the pool to warm down and a friend of mine said ‘They’ve been calling your name,’” Brooks said. “I kept saying, ‘I don’t think I am supposed to be here.’” Officials later realized it was UA’s Claire Van Fossen who finished eighth (59.41) and corrected the error. At the end of the meet, Brooks was back at the podium after joining Behrent, Megan Schmalenberger and Megan Wittman on the 400 free relay that placed eighth (3:42.22). “The district meet has made me realize that I am not the best and I need to step it up if I went to get any further,” Brooks said. “It’s going to make me focus harder in practice.” Midway through his first 25 yards of the 100 breaststroke, Davidson senior Vince Gill noticed something was wrong. “Everything felt smooth, but

a little too smooth,” said Gill, who placed fifth in 1:00.42. “I didn’t feel like I was pulling enough water. I spaced out on my first 25 and didn’t pull as hard as I could. Then I started to really pull water in the last 50 because I was trying to get (back into the race).” Gill was the only member of the Davidson boys team to reach the awards podium. •Darby didn’t advance anyone to the Division I state meet. Freshman Hunter Cook was hoping for an at-large berth after finishing fourth in the 500 free (4:44.41), but the 500 free was the only Central District event that didn’t receive an at-large spot. “The 500 free has a lot of competition this year. It makes me train even harder when I am tired,” said Cook, who dropped 10.98 seconds from the sectional meet. Cook, who also finished seventh in the 200 free (1:47.16), was the only Panthers swimmer to finish in the top eight. pbatterson@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Commentary

Intrigue abounds in Division I boys tourney Much of what made the Division I district boys basketball tournament special last year should find its way back to the Fairgrounds Coliseum over the coming weeks. There might not be a dominating presence like 2010 Northland High School graduate Jared Sullinger, and Gahanna doesn’t have a high-profile senior duo as it did a year ago with 2010 graduates Rob Brandenburg and Anthony Jackson. But those two teams — as well as possibly a half-dozen others from central Ohio — possess the ability to advance to the state tournament. Second-seeded Northland has perhaps the area’s best player in senior guard and Michigan-signee Trey Burke. Although he doesn’t have Sullinger or 2010 graduate J.D. Weatherspoon to pass the ball to, Burke has elevated his offensive game while 6-foot8 junior post players Devon Scott and Jalen Robinson have continued to develop. Fourth-seeded Gahanna is led by a large group of seniors, including guard and Ohio University-signee Stevie Taylor, hungry to prove that last year’s statetournament run was no fluke.

And we haven’t even discussed the No. 1 seed yet. Westerville South followed a perfect regular JARROD season last ULREY year by losing in a district semifinal, but this year’s version is even better. Senior guard and Wisconsin-signee Traevon Jackson leads an attack that stifles opponents defensively. What makes this year’s district tournament intriguing is that that trio of teams doesn’t have a big advantage over the other teams seeded among the top seven. Upper Arlington received the third seed and has one of the area’s best shooting guards in Miami University-signee Brian Sullivan. The Golden Bears jumped into the same bracket as Northland even though an entire bracket remained open, setting up a potentially thrilling district final March 11 at the Fairgrounds. South may get another shot at Marion-Franklin in a district semifinal after the Red Devils

upended the Wildcats 66-57 at the same level last season. It wouldn’t be wise to bet against South coach Ed Calo if the rematch occurs. The problem for the Wildcats is that fifth-seeded Pickerington North also could be looming in a district final. The Panthers may be the ultimate workman-like team, with no standout but several players who can shoot well from 3-point range and a group of tall forwards who know how to play defense. And all of that is not to discount eighth-seeded New Albany, which used a similar formula as North to win the OCC-Capital Division. The Eagles potentially would face the Panthers in a district semifinal. Gahanna’s bracket, meanwhile, is characterized by depth. Joining the Lions in that bracket are sixth-seeded Walnut Ridge, seventh-seeded Dublin Coffman and ninth-seeded Westerville North. Walnut Ridge is a bit of an upstart, considering it advanced to the City League championship game for the first time this season. The Scots have a pair of players who are at least 6-8, and 6-4 senior Austin Traylor has emerged as one of the area’s best forwards.

Coffman and Westerville North are back among the area elite after making long tournament runs last year. The Shamrocks edged UA 5048 in a district semifinal last year and went on to win their first district title since 2004. Among their seven seniors are guard Christian Heine, who has been a regular since his freshman year, and guard Zack Riddle, a Watterson transfer who has become their leading scorer. Westerville North no longer has 2010 graduate Ralph Hill after being a district finalist last year, but the Warriors might have the area’s best sophomore in point

guard Jack Gibbs and they’ve shown explosiveness throughout the season. The district tournament is a place where players like Gibbs shine on a bigger stage for the first time, squads that play team basketball like Pickerington North step forward, and seniors such as Burke, Jackson, Sullivan and Taylor lead their teams to new heights. What could make this one memorable is that it’s hard to predict which circumstances will come to the forefront. julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

LARSON Continued from page B1 them and from gymnastics has carried over into the other aspects of my life. Gymnastics has completely shaped my personality and has helped me with time management and organizational skills. Gymnastics has really made me who I am.” Looking at the district meet, Parsley said, “Wow, what competition there will be out

there on Saturday. I think my experience and age will help me a little in that seniors are usually prepared for the pressures involved with this meet where, as a freshman, you can be harder on yourself and maybe stress over errors too much. But for me at the district meet, it is going to be very important that I have fun and enjoy the experience. It is my last year in high school and it is, conceivably, my last gymnastics meet, so I want to hit all

my events and get back to the state championship meet.” Parsley sounds like a winner. Good luck to all of this week’s competitors. I’ll see you at a meet. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.

The Stallions were 11-9 before playing the Lions, who were 13-7. DeSales defeated Sparta Highland 65-43 in the first round and Bexley had a first-round bye. DeSales is led by senior guard Maddie Lockhart, junior guard Tyler Craig and 5-foot-10 senior post player Lynnse Doran. “They’ve got three post players 5-9 or 5-10, but overall they aren’t real big,” Lindsey said. “They run the floor well and are very aggressive. They like to penetrate and kick it back out or draw fouls. They’ve very similar to us. I do think there’s a bit of a rivalry developing because they knocked us out of the tournament last season and we beat them in their home opener with a new coaching staff, so that may have left a bad taste in their mouths.” Bexley is led by senior forward Jelicia Shelton, senior guard Kylee Soga and junior guard Bailey Breese. “(Shelton) is averaging a double-double and is tough on the boards (10.8 rebounds per game), Lindsey said. “She’s an undersized post (player), but a good, strong athlete who jumps well. If we see them, we’ll have to make sure to get a body on her at all times when the shot goes up. They also have a couple good guards in (Soga and Breese). They can shoot it from the outside.” The district final is 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 3, at Ohio Dominican. Filling out the other side of the bracket would be top-seeded Olentangy, sixth-seeded Hartley, Hamilton Township or Lakewood.

Through 17 games, Jackson was averaging 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. White was averaging 4.9 assists and Wright was making 41.9 percent of his 3-point fieldgoal attempts (39-for-93). “Hamilton Township is very athletic and would present us some tough matchups,” Limbird said. “We would have to keep them out of the paint. Olentangy is long on the perimeter and they switch defenses a lot. They play some gamble defenses, so we’d have to be prepared for traps and stuff. They play well on defense.” •The girls team opened Division II district tournament play against Licking Valley on Feb. 23, 12 days after beating Westerville Central 60-38 to close the regular season. “We’re excited to get started in the postseason,” said coach Kathy Lindsey, whose team was 17-3 and had a first-round bye as the third seed. “We know it won’t be easy, but we’re hoping to continue playing for a while once we start.” The Jaguars hoped to knock off any rust early against a bigger Licking Valley team that advanced by beating Utica 58-46 in the first round Feb. 15. The winner will play seventhseeded Bexley or eighth-seeded DeSales in a district semifinal at 6 p.m. March 1 at Pickerington North. Bradley has never played Bexley, but the Jaguars defeated DeSales 58-54 in the opener Nov. 30, after losing to the Stallions bemerine@thisweeknews.com 47-43 in a district final last year. www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

to lead Davidson. Noelani Woodson scored 10 points to pace Groveport, which finished 5-16. “We thought this was a game we could win, but we didn’t have a penetrating point guard to handle their pressure or set up our shooters in this game,” Groveport coach Brad Woodson said. “My daughter made 50 3-pointers before this game, but she had only two in it because we had trouble setting her up.”

starting point guard Destiny Hicks quit the team Feb. 11 and backup point guard Alexis Smoot suffered a season-ending foot injury midway through the season. Hicks was averaging nine points and 4.5 assists per game. One of Groveport’s key post players, Kourtni Perry, also played sparingly in her first game back from a foot injury that caused her to miss most of ablankenship@thisweeknews.com the season.

Get your Irish up at P.K. O’Ryan’s in Worthington Unlike several of its competitors, P.K. O’Ryan’s wasn’t built in Ireland and reassembled over here. And this tiny Irish-themed pub doesn’t feature self-consciously eccentric seating in a splashy and sprawling setting. No, P.K. O’Ryan’s is just a neighborhoody place where actual locals gather to sip, chat and sup. Maybe that’s why P.K.’s feels more like an authentic Irish pub than its built-in-Ireland, chainy brethren. Located in quaint Old Worthington, P.K.’s is the kind of place where on a lazy Sunday gentlemen have lunch with a pint and The New York Times and ladies roll in for an entree salad. On a weeknight with the Buckeyes on TV, the comfy pub — which appropriates a cozy, pilsner-colored glow for evening lighting — gets a bit more ani-

MENU by G.A. Benton mated. But just a bit, mind you. While P.K.’s is connected to a larger, more regulation restaurant, since I prefer its taverny aspect, I suggest you sit on that side (unless you’ve got the peewee basketball team in tow) — just follow the shamrocks to the pub entry. Then plop down at a semirickety (in a good way) wooden bench with a padded back or belly up to the well used wooden bar, which is the color of Guinness stout. P.K.’s food is just solid pub grub, but some of its stuff stands out. The “so wrong they’re right” Irish Nachos ($8) fit that standout category.

bits of commendably houseroasted corned beef (though I would have liked more), sauerkraut, a decent Swiss cheese sauce and snipped scallions lent tons of salty and irresistible character to the good chips (Thousand Island was on the side for dipping). Also good — if less wild — was the homemade chili ($4). Meaty, thick and hearty, it was made with black beans and seemed about 85 percent ground beef — a righteous ratio. For a lighter starter, the house salad ($4.50) wasn’t bad. While it’s not something you’ll be thinking about long afterward, neither is it a total blowoff. Good sized and assembled with fresh romaine (no iceberg), it was sprinkled with shredded cheese, tomato, onions and boxed croutons and got a bit of distinction from

A huge, housemade bread bowl was loaded with a soulful, potatoheavy stew of tender pot roast, sweet onions, carrots and a thick, Guinness-sloshed beefy gravy. What’s a homemade Irish sheet cake? It’a a giant block of chocolate cake with nuts and a sweet fudgy icing ($5). In other words, what you’d call a nice Texas sheet cake when eaten in a pub that feels accommodatingly Irish.

Restaurant with Southwestern flair opens in Merion Village Robin Emrick is happy to say there isn’t anything quite like Coyote Jane’s in her immediate neighborhood – or beyond. The Merion Village restaurant, 1586 S. High St., is based on a simple premise: affordable, homemade Santa Fe cuisine and festive drinks in a laidback environment. Emrick, the chef and co-owner, said that while the cuisine has its roots in the artsy New Mexico capital, it melds global ingredients. “My cooking style is to mesh different flavors that nobody else would think of putting together,” she said. Yet the bill of fare, in which everything is currently priced less than $10, has been subject to vast interpretations. “It’s not Mexican,” she said. “The menu right now is a little misunderstood.” So, in short, expect the unexpected. The “Hop Sing” green chili burger, for example, uses 8 ounces of Angus beef topped with deepfried jalapenos, sharp cheddar and green chili agave pesto on grilled brioche. The steak chili uses a splash of Jack Daniels and is touched off with a drizzle of Mexican chipotle chocolate. There are tacos, burritos (called burros) and deep-fried burritos, otherwise known as chimichangas. Many have Coyote Jane’s signature touch, such as the “poppy shrimp” tacos, filled with deep-fried buttermilk popcorn shrimp, a traditional garnish and cayenne mayo. The signature cocktail is the grilled watermelon sidecar – tequila, agave syrup, grilled watermelon and fresh mint. An untamed version of a

■ The Powell dining scene has grown dramatically in recent years. Keile Baney isn’t worried. The chef of the Liberty Tavern says he tries to stay on top of the competition by giving diners a large variety of dishes at reasonable prices. “We have a regular crowd and they’re not afraid to tell us what they want,” he said. Keile Baney Customers can get everything from grilled mahi mahi over risotto to the Tavern “stacker” – a burger crowned with barbecue pork, bacon, cheddar and onion rings. “We have a little bit of everything,” said Baney, now a contributor to Food & Wine. Baney said his real passion is smoking. Tavern patrons are treated to frequent smoked specials, including brisket, turkey and pork shoulder. Baney is a 12-year veteran of the restaurant industry, working in Pennsylvania, Michigan and locally at such places as Hyde Park. To read more on Baney and see his recipe for fish tacos, go to www.ThisWeekNews.com/foodandwine.

What do all these people have in common?

$ 00 HAPPY HOUR 5-7 p.m.

bloody Mary offers shrimp and pickled egg. After leasing the building in March, the restaurant had a few stutter steps because of liquor license and permitting issues. It is open dinner only until March 1, when lunch hours are introduced. Emrick said she will have an entirely new lunch menu while adding some entrees at dinner. Emrick is a partner and chef in the Banana Bean Café, which got its start in Schumacher Place and later moved to Greenlawn Avenue. Her other business associates are Angela Caskey, also part of the founding partnership of Banana Bean and Skillet, and Jane Ann Wentzel, whose name served as the inspiration for the new restaurant. The building, at the northeast corner of High and East Morrill Avenue, had been home to Craters Restaurant and Bar for about 25 years. Then, the Eagle bar had been in business for about six months before Coyote Jane’s moved in. Emrick said she liked the look of the place: wooden floors, exposed brick and a cozy dining space. She shortened the bar and added several Southwest appointments for a rustic look. The dining room seats about 30 and the bar space seats another 25. “I’ve been down here for 15 years,” she said. “I’ve seen Merion Village grow in the last 10 years. And the people want something different.” Coyote Jane’s is open five days a week, closed Sunday and Monday. For more information, call 614-444-5460.
