City budget woes

Online survey allows residents’ input By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A crowd of more than 100 filled the Bexley Public Library auditorium May 24 to give city council and administration officials their two cents worth on how to make up a projected multimillion-dollar shortfall in the city budget. After a review of the city’s finances, and pre-

senting a variety of possible solutions, city officials listened to nearly two hours of suggestions, criticisms and alternative solutions from 20 different residents. Financial projections call for the city’s expenses to outpace revenues as early as 2012 and to continue to escalate over the following four years. City Auditor Gary Qualmann has estimated the city will need to increase revenues and/or reduce expenses

by $2.9 million a year in order to balance the city’s budget over the next five years. Finance and Judiciary Committee Chairman Ben Kessler said city tax revenues have remained relatively flat over the past decade while expenses have increased. He said state budget cuts to the Local Government Fund and the proposed elimination of Ohio’s estate tax could spell financial disaster for the city. Those two sources account for approxi-

Westbrook to address CSG Class of 2011 By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Britanny Westbrook, a 1998 graduate of the Columbus School for Girls (CSG), will serve as the keynote speaker for the school’s 2011 commencement ceremony. The ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, June 9, in the Jeffrey Courtyard at CSG. Sixty-two members of Brittany the CSG Class of 2011 will Westbrook participate in the ceremony, which is a compilation of hymns, readings, and prayers that recall the lasting ethical values that have traditionally governed school life since 1898, and reflect the growth of the school and its cultural diversity. The school is guided by its history, respect for all faiths, the principle of unity in diversity, and the firm conviction of the worth of each person’s life. The ceremony is rich in tradition. All graduates wear long white dresses, and each carries a dozen long-stemmed red roses. All underclassmen attend graduation in their official school uniforms, and all faculty and board members attend in traditional commencement regalia robes. All the younger girls at CSG have a big sis-

mately 25 percent of the city budget, Kessler said. City Council President Jeff McClelland told audience members that no decision on how to solve the budget crisis has been adopted by city council, although a tax increase of some kind is likely to be placed on the November ballot. Kessler presented three possible options during

Eric Fingerhut, former Ohio legislator and Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, will give the commencement address at Bexley High School’s graduation at 4 p.m., Sunday, June 5, in the high school stadium at 348 S. Cassingham. Each of the 192 graduating seniors has selected the faculty member who will present his/her diploma at the ceremony. Bexley High School’s choral students and concert band will perform at the ceremony as well. A senior fellow at Jobs for the Future, Fingerhut served as the seventh chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents from 2007 through 2011, developing a longterm strategic plan for Ohio’s higher education system. Fingerhut currently advises on higher education policies and practices at Jobs for the Future, a Boston-based organization with operations in 41 states. The nonprofit seeks to improve educational opportunities for low-income youth and adults. Fingerhut, a Cleveland native with a B.S. degree from Northwestern University and a J.D. from Stanford University, served as director of economic development and entrepreneurship at Baldwin-

Wallace College in Berea. He was an Ohio senator from 1991-93 and 1999 to 2006; he also served a term Eric Fingerhut in the U.S. House of Representatives, 199394. The leaders of Bexley High School’s senior class nominate and choose their commencement speaker. Class officer Evan Soll said Fingerhut has a unique ability to identify with people. “As a member of Congregation Agudas Achim, I have witnessed him quickly move from a new congregant to our president,” he said. “When he walks into the room, it lights up, as he never misses an opportunity to greet a friend or make a new one — always making people feel at home. “Since it is very important for the graduating class to feel both comfortable and welcomed during the ceremony,” Soll said, “Eric Fingerhut will do a wonderful job. He has a very impressive ability to identify with all ages ... We are very privileged to have Eric with us.”

BHS Class of 2011: Diverse, talented Editor’s Note: While Bexley High School does not recognize a class valedictorian or salutatorian, there is an abundance of talented, involved students in the community. The following profiles are four examples of the students who make the BHS Class of 2011 a special one.

emorial Day was not conceived to be the kickoff to summer activities or as a reason to schedule a three-day weekend. It was established to recognize the nation’s military veterans who died while fighting for their country. In keeping with efforts to recognize and honor the sacrifices and service of military veterans, ThisWeek Community Media is launching Honoring Heroes, a continuing series through which we will share the stories and remembrances from and about local men and women who are either on active duty or retired from service. As part of covering their beats, our reporters often hear about and write about veterans leaving for overseas or com-

We’ve written about soldiers who arrive at their homes or their children’s schools to unexpectedly surprise their delighted families. We know many more stories are out there, waiting to be told. We want to tell them. And we need your help.

CSG building project groundbreaking slated CSG

The community is invited to join Columbus School for Girls (CSG) for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the kick-off of the Landmark Campaign and the start of the Landmark Building Project, Friday, June 10, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at CSG’s Jeffrey Courtyard, 56 S. Columbia Ave. The festivities will include an original song written specifically for the event by Jenny Young and will be performed by Young and students in CSG’s Program for Young Children. The groundbreaking is scheduled the day after members of the class of 2011 attend their commencement ceremony. Although this class will not benefit from the new structures and enhanced spaces, all students are considered the foundation of the project; therefore, the class of 2011 will all sign their names on stones that will be placed into the foundation of the new construction. In the fall, the entire CSG student body, faculty, and staff will all sign a steel beam to be used in the construction to signify the

strength of the school community. The school motto is Forte et Gratum (Strength and Grace), and the construction motto will follow suite with “Building with Strength and Grace.” The Landmark Building Project is a progression of CSG’s strategic planning process. “It was created from an extensive facilities master planning process, led by the board of trustees and consultants, which ultimately resulted in a comprehensive and prioritized list of needs,” said Susan Tomasky, president of the CSG board of trustees. “The goal of the Landmark Building Project is to upgrade the Bexley campus to better align CSG’s facilities with the school’s mission, priorities, and needs,” said Liza Lee, head of school. “The larger objective is to have excellence as the hallmark of every aspect of the school and to ensure that the facilities fully support the academic, artistic, athletics, and wellness curriculum and programs. The result will be a state-

of-the-art Wellness and Athletics Complex, as well as a comprehensive Performing Arts Center.” Construction of the Landmark Building Project will be completed in two phases and is being funded through private donations. The Landmark Campaign has been quietly and successfully raising leadership gifts for over a year. The groundbreaking ceremony on June 10 will kick off the public phase of the Landmark Campaign. The total campaign goal is $20 million, which includes $1112 million for Phase I and $6-7 million for Phase II, and a $2 million endowment. Phase I of the Landmark Building Project will expand and enhance CSG’s athletics, physical education and dining facilities to create a comprehensive Wellness and Athletics Complex that will benefit every student through physical education classes, athletics, and playing a significant role in developing wellness habits that will serve them throughout their lives. Phase I of construction, will also include a more vis-

ible main entrance that will be created on Drexel Avenue. Phase II will see the creation of a Performing Arts Center to support existing performing arts programming. Enrollment in the performing arts is at an all-time high and CSG is a proven leader in theatre, music, and the arts. The new theater will serve as a classroom and rehearsal space as well as accommodate the many performances by students. A generously-sized lobby in the performing arts center will double as a long-needed flexible space for special events and community gatherings. RSVP for the groundbreaking ceremony to Tiffany Duncan at 614.252.0781, ext. 131 or Renderings of the project can be seen at the Columbus school for Girls website, then click on the Landmark Building Project button.

the public hearing. Achieving the entire $2.9 million in annual savings through costcutting measures alone or two options, both of which would involve a combination of cost reductions and increasing the city income-tax rate from 2 percent to 2.5 percent. Bexley residents who work outside the community and earn $100,000 a year currently pay $400 in city income taxes. The options outlined by Kessler would cost that taxpayer an additional $275 to $475 a year, depending on the percentage of credit that resident would receive for taxes paid to the community where he or she works.

Bexley High School Class of 2011 has talented, diverse graduates Continued from page A1

“It was a very good experience and opportunity taking AP classes,” he said. “I think that AP classes are more like the type of class you have in college, so it’s good that I was able to experience that in a more controlled, supported environment.” This fall, Humphrey plans to attend Ohio University in the Honors Tutorial College, where he will study business or, most likely, business administration. “I absolutely feel that BHS has prepared me for college,”he said. “The rigorous classes and homework helped me prepare myself to be academically independent next year in college.”

Adugna was one of the 14 Bexley high-schoolers recognized last year as academically successful central Ohio minority students by the Columbus Chapter, The Links, Inc., an African American civic and service organization, and Ohio State University’s Office of Minority Affairs. This past winter, Adugna earned a berth at the state speech and debate competition held in Toledo. According to her club adviser and BHS teacher David O’Reilly, she did well in four preliminary rounds against tough competition in the category of dramatic interpretation. “Rahel’s goal was to make the Jeanette Klamfoth state tournament from the very For the past four years, Jeanette beginning and proved that hard Klamfoth has juggled a schedule work enables one to reach one’s busier than that of most high goals,” O’Reilly said. school students.

Medical Center, neurosurgeons from Central Ohio Neurological Surgeons Inc., and a pediatric orthopedic surgeon at Nationwide Children’s Hospital before shadowing another pediatrician. She has also had the opportunity to work in Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine Clinics one day a week with different athletic trainers. “She as been involved with multiple rounds in several hospitals in central Ohio and has also shadowed during brain and spinal cord surgery,” her project adviser, science teacher Scott Logsdon said. “She scrubbed in and was present right next to the doctors.” Part of her goal for her senior project was to develop a better idea of what direction she wants to pursue in the future. She will attend Wittenberg University this fall. “I intend on majoring in biology or chemistry, with a minor in education,” she said. “However, my ultimate goal is premed.” According to Klamfoth, the best thing about going to Bexley High School is that the classes are small and everyone is given the opportunity to challenge themselves in honors and Advanced Placement courses. “With the small classes, students get the individual attention that allows them to succeed,” she said. “Additionally, teachers are always available to students if extra help is ever needed.” Bexley’s many honors and AP courses “allow anyone who is willing to work a little extra to get an advanced education,” Klamforth said. “With all of the help and knowledge that I have received while at Bexley High School, I believe that I will be prepared for the next steps in my college education, or that’s my hope at least,” she said.

Jaclyn Serpico Serpico graduates from Bexley High School this spring, having been named a National Merit Finalist by the National Merit Scholarship Program. She said Bexley High School has prepared her well for college, because she not only took a wide variety of Jaclyn courses, she Serpico also enjoyed a well-rounded experience with many extracurricular activities. She runs cross country and is co-captain of the Bexley High School Book Club. She has played piano for 13 years, with 10 of those on National Roll as a member of the American College of Musicians (commonly called Piano Guild). While her original list for col-

lege applications included Georgetown, University of Southern California and Claremont McKenna College, she has elected to stay in her adopted home state, at the Ohio State University in the Honors Program. Serpico, who has served as coeditor of the school’s award-winning student newspaper, The Torch, earned accolades recently from the Ohio Scholastic Media Association. One of her editorials received a rating of superior, while her “team in-depth reporting” and another editorial were cited as excellent. In addition, the publication was recognized with the All-Ohio award, the highest possible designation. Serpico was selected twice to travel on the school’s spring break marine biology field trip to the Bahamas, earning scuba diving certification. She has traveled extensively with her family as well, honing her Spanish

language skills. Her Spanish reading and comprehension are fluent, although she says she still has to “think too much” when she speaks the language. For a small school (its total enrollment is 692 students), Bexley High School offers an array of 19 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, of which Serpico took full advantage. As a junior and sophomore, she was enrolled in AP U.S. history, Spanish, language and composition and U.S. government and politics. She scored “5’s” (the highest possible score) on all of her AP exams, so she will earn college credit for these courses. She learns this summer whether she will also receive college credit for three senior year AP classes: English literature and composition, European history and statistics. She expects to enter Ohio State with at least a freshman year’s worth of courses already under her belt.

School notebook

Bexley school community supported Race for the Cure As I sit down to write, I am still riding a “high” from last weekend’s Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Columbus. Some of my euphoria is from the physical activity and excitement, of course, while some comes from my pride in our Bexley students who took on the challenge of fundraising and team building. My heart also swells from the courageous example set by breast cancer survivors who are dear to me. I was privileged to serve this year as co-captain, with Cassingham parent and breast cancer survivor Allison Nakasako, for the Bexley Lions/Cassingham Cubs for the Cure. We recruited a team of about 100 members of the Bexley school community and coordinated transportation with the Beat Bus to and from the race. Our team held several events this spring to pump up enthusiasm, including a WEAR PINK Day, Walk to School Week and a mini rally during Cassingham’s town meeting the day before the race. Various team members hosted fundraising activities on their own, such as bake sales, yard sales and parties. A group of Cassingham

MEGAN LAFOLLETTE fifth-graders put together events at home and, at our town meeting, presented me with a check to Komen Columbus. Imagine my thrill when they hit the finish line on Saturday, arm-in-arm. I had not seen them at all through the hubbub of the morning because we had arrived on separate buses, but the moment I crossed the finish line, I turned around and there they were. I can only imagine where this team of girls is headed in the years to come. Fourth-grader Malen Rankin ran the whole Race for the Cure, stopping only once to walk and finishing in 43 minutes. Pretty impressive considering that her time represents a 14-minute mile and she just turned 10. Ilana Spector, parent of a Cassingham first-grader and one of our team members, ran her first 5K in years and finished in just over 35 minutes. And my own four-year-old insisted on walking the first mile and a quarter… all by herself. Many of my Bexley Schools colleagues strive to show how health and fitness can be person-

al priorities. For example, Cassingham teacher and Pelatonia veteran Stacy Bell will ride with me in this year’s bicycle tour to fight cancer. My coworker Katie Langholf trained all winter for a half marathon and a group of us — Diana Pryor, Rachel Reigler, Ms. Bell, Ms. Langholf — regularly takes a Barre Fusion class after work here in Bexley. Montrose teachers often run alongside their students in the school’s spring Fun Run. Maryland phys ed teacher Josh Price’s contribution to the school’s “March Mathness”? One hundred different exercises for students to try out first thing in the morning. Teachers across the district make fitness and health part of their own lives every day. Not only are our actions aligned with the district’s health and wellness initiatives, we as classroom teachers try to live by example. The Race for the Cure presents a precious opportunity to combine our commitment to health with community service that benefits an important cause, so you can understand my enthusiasm for our See SCHOOL, page A6

Bexley’s America in Bloom Committee is seeking nominations for its beautification contest, which is expected to highlight many of the residential gardens found throughout the city. The contest will recognize six Bexley gardens in Bexley. The committee established the beautification contest to spark community-wide recognition and support of Bexley’s second entry into the America in Bloom contest, a national awards program that recognizes communities that emphasize and promote urban beautification. Randomly selected judges from around the country will evaluate Bexley in eight categories, including community involvement, floral displays, heritage preservation, environmental awareness,

tidiness, landscaped areas, urban forestry, and turf and groundcover areas. Bexley Beautification Awardwinners will likely share their gardens with the AIB judges who will be visiting in July. “America in Bloom provides the perfect vehicle for showcasing Bexley’s continued commitment to improving our urban landscape,” said Ginny Salamy, Bexley’s America in Bloom Committee chair. “As a part of that, the Bexley Beautification Contest allows Bexley residents to share and take pride in their own beautification efforts.” The Bexley Beautification Contest will be judging residential gardens that are selfmaintained. Awards will be based on criteria such as organization,

cleanliness, vibrancy, and diversity of plants and trees. Nomination forms can be found at Bexley City Hall, on, and at the Bexley Library. Nominations must be submitted by June 19 to Bexley City Hall, 2242 Main St., Bexley 43209 or to Award winners are expected to be announced during the July Fourth celebrations. Bexley’s America in Bloom Committee is comprised of citizens and representatives of various civic and social organizations that support Bexley.

Airport construction jets money into local economy ment runway, which will be 702 backer, the cargo-dedicated air-


ThisWeek Community Newspapers feet south of the existing south port on the south side of Colum-

Statistics released May 25 by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority show the city’s three airport facilities have become major contributors to the local economy. Elaine Roberts, airport authority president and CEO, said Port Columbus International Airport, Rickenbacker Airport and Bolton Field facilities are responsible for more than $2.7 billion a year in economic activity. The airport authority has a construction budget of more than $117 million this year for improvement and expansion projects, with more than $490 million in capital expenditures occurring since 2005. These projects are funded by federal airport improvement grants, federal American Recovery & Reinvestment Act funding, airport revenue bonds, user fees and airport authority funds. “In addition to the significant, ongoing economic impact created by the airports, several major, multi-year construction projects are fueling even greater economic growth in the region,” Roberts said. The first major project is the replacement of the south runway at Port Columbus. The replace-

runway, maximizes the use of airport property by providing enough separation from the north runway for simultaneous arrivals and departures, Roberts said. The new location also sets the stage for a second passenger terminal, which will be built in the center of the airport property, as dictated by increased passenger activity. The existing south runway, which includes original 1928 pavement in some areas, has been extended and repaved over the years and with this new project will be converted to a taxiway. The airport authority’s board of directors has approved more than $45 million in runway-replacement project funds. The majority of those funds will go to Shelly & Sands Inc. for paving and electrical work, as well as the installation of aircraft navigational aids, Roberts said. The entire four-year project, which includes modifications to the airport golf course, is estimated about $143 million. Earth and utility work is under way, with the runway expected to open June 2013. The board also approved more than $4.2 million in funds for the final phase of pavement rehabilitation and lighting replacement for a runway at Ricken-


Event Business, social media topic at breakfast The Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce will host a breakfast discussion on businesses and social media on Tuesday, June 7, at 7:30 a.m. at Embassy Suites at the Columbus Airport, 2886 Airport Drive. Michele Baker Cuthbert, owner of Baker Creative, will lead a talk on “Social Media and How It Impacts Your Business.” She has 20 years of experience working with leading brands that include McDonalds, Ohio State University Hospital,

bus, Roberts said. After its completion, the project will have spanned three years and resulted in an investment of about $15.3 million. Another major construction project currently under way at Port Columbus is the new in-line baggage-screening system that is expected to enhance safety and customer service, Roberts said. Terminal-lobby congestion will be alleviated when the screening equipment is moved behind the scenes, enabling passengers to again leave their luggage at the airline ticket counters, he said. This $34 million project started in 2010 and is expected to be functional by Thanksgiving, with some work continuing into 2012. “We recognize that our business and community partners rely on the successful operation and development of Port Columbus, Rickenbacker and Bolton Field airports,” Roberts said. “We take great pride in providing safe, enjoyable airport environments on a daily basis while also planning for the long-term growth of these critical aviation assets. We are fortunate to be able to accomplish this while also creating a significant impact to the local economy.”

St. Charles Roundup

Spees, Quinn, 3,200 relay run to state meet By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Al Hosteteler is pleased to be sending competitors to state in three events after not having a state qualifier last season. The coach of the St. Charles Preparatory School track and field team watched as the runners on the Cardinals’ 3,200-meter relay had a strong performance May 25, the opening day of the Division I regional meet at Pickerington North.

The relay of Stevyn Spees, Will Herriman, Colin Merrill and Chris Quinn finished second in 7 minutes, 52.22 seconds, just behind Westerville North (7:52.05). The top four in each event qualified for state Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, at Ohio State. “We talked for a half hour as a group and thought we would change things up a little,” Hostetler said. “We visualized what we needed to do and they went out and did it.” The meet concluded on May 27

as Spees advanced to state by placing second in the 400 (48.79) and Quinn qualified by taking fourth in the 1,600 (4:20.87). “Going into the race, my goal was just to get top four,” Quinn said. “At this stage, fourth is just as good as first. Next week (at state), I’m going to be giving it my all. “I worked my butt off in this race. I think I could have had a little bit more at the end. That wind on the homestretch is tough.” The Cardinals tied for 15th (21

points) with Big Walnut and Pickerington Central behind co-champions Thomas Worthington and Westerville North (37) as 39 teams scored. •The tennis team had a doubles team playing in the Division I state tournament, which concluded on May 28 at Hilliard Davidson. Seniors Grant Dolven and Weston Niermeyer won their opening-round match against Jake Youse and Chad Buchanan of Lexington 2-6, 7-5, 6-3. See CARDINALS, page B2

Lions qualify for state in four events By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Bexley’s Kendra Wilson (left) and Abby Fagin are members of the 3,200 relay, which finished third in the Division II regional meet May 28 in Dayton with a 9:30.09. They will compete in the state meet, which is Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, at Ohio State.

As quarterback for the Bexley High School football team, Jalen Robinette is used to handing off the ball. This spring, the junior has had to work on receiving a baton handoff. Robinette anchored Elijah Scott, D.J. Jones and Rasheed Morgan to a third-place finish in the 800-meter relay (1 minute, 30.76 seconds) in the Division II regional boys track and field meet on May 28 in Dayton’s Welcome Stadium. The relay will compete in the preliminaries of the state meet at 2:45 p.m. Friday, June 3, at Ohio State, with the top eight advancing to the finals at 2:40 p.m. Saturday, June 4. “We’ve worked on our handoffs all season,” Robinette said. “It’s nerve-wracking being on that line waiting for the exchange. Once that baton hits your hand, all the adrenaline kicks in.” The boys tied Cincinnati Mariemont, St. Paris Graham and Dayton Oakwood for 22nd place (9) behind regional champion Dayton Dunbar (78) as 43 teams scored. The girls team placed 12th (19) behind champion Hartley (82) as 49 teams scored. The top four finishers in each event at regional advanced to state.

The 800 relay is the boys team’s first state qualifier since 2008, when the 3,200 relay placed ninth (8:12.72). The Lions are tied with Hartley for the 15th seed in the 800 relay behind top-seeded Steubenville (1:28.37). “I’m not one of these guys who compares times and stuff,” Robinette said. “We’re just going to run and see what happens.” Charlotte Myers will be quite busy at state. She is seeded second in the girls 400 after placing second at regional (57.02) behind Hartley’s Aisha Cavin (56.19). Myers also will compete on the 400 relay with Emily Winnegard, Eva Jerkins and T.T. Siler and the 3,200 relay with Abby Fagin, Regan Detwiler and Kendra Wilson. The Lions were fourth in the 400 relay (50.11) and third in 3,200 relay (9:30.09) at regional. •The boys tennis team defeated Lima Shawnee 3-1 in a state semifinal and lost to Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy 3-2 in the final to finish second in the OTCA Division II state team tournament on May 29 at Hilliard Davidson. Against CVCA, Bexley tied the match at 2 after the Lions’ David Seckel and Max Schottenstein defeated Mason Blake See LIONS, page B2

CSG Roundup

Strategy works as Chatas reaches state track meet By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Things went according to plan for Columbus School for Girls junior Sophie Chatas. Expecting her top competition to save energy for the final two laps of the 1,600 meters in the Division II regional track and field meet on May 28 in Dayton Welcome Stadium, Chatas knew not to panic if she got passed by a few runners. She didn’t, and in the final few hundred meters, Chatas made her move. The top three runners finished within one second of each other, as Kettering Alter’s Olivia Albers was first in 5 minutes, 13.29 seconds,

Cincinnati Wyoming’s Emily Stites was second in 5:13.68 and Chatas took third in 5:13.72. Chatas will compete for the state title at 1:35 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at Ohio State. “It was pretty exciting,” Chatas said. “I (got a personal-best time) by a second, and I’m really excited for state. I’m happy to make it to state. I just need to keep my eyes on the front of the crowd and hopefully run another PR. If I can just stay in that front pack, I should get close to the podium.” Chatas began competing in cross country as a sophomore but hadn’t run the 1,600 until this season. See UNICORNS, page B3

CARDINALS Continued from page B1 The Cardinals then lost to Ryan O’Gara and Zach Berry of Springboro 6-1, 2-6, 6-2 in the second round. O’Gara and Berry went on to finish fourth. “The first round was awesome,” Dolven said. “We were playing against (Buchanan) who used to be my neighbor. It was the first time we’ve played them this season and it’s always good to beat your friend. That was fun. “In the second round, they were very consistent on their volleys. That first match was very tiring for us, so that didn’t help us. We came back in the second set, but they were just really good players. You can’t ask for any more than that.” Niermeyer knew the competition would be tough at state. “Once you get to the state level, everyone is good,” he said. “I know the Central District teams are very strong, but the other district teams were strong, too. “(O’Gara and Berry) both had very good hands. They didn’t miss a lot of volleys. We floated (our returns) up to them and that made the points go longer and we had to work harder to get anything.” Dolven and Niermeyer finished fourth at district, which concluded May 21 at Davidson. They won the doubles title in the sectional at Hilliard Darby, which concluded May 14. Also at sectional, junior Dennis Gleason finished fourth in singles to advance to district. The Cardinals completed their regular season at 11-4 overall under third-year coach Linda Myers. They won the CCL title with a 3-2 victory over Watterson on May 16. In the league standings, St. Charles finished 4-0 followed by Watterson (3-1), DeSales (2-2), Ready (1-3) and Hartley (0-4). Expected to return are juniors Gleason, Michael Susa and Stuart Swartz and sophomores Kevin Smoot and Trey Ward. William Niermeyer, Weston’s freshman brother, was a mainstay on doubles and singles courts this season. •The volleyball team finished 19-9, losing to Akron Hoban 25-23, 25-27, 26-24, 25-20 in a Division II state semifinal on May 28 at Pickerington North.

Alec Jeffers of St. Charles reacts to a point during a state quarterfinal match against Akron Hoban on May 28 at Pickerington North. The Cardinals lost 25-23, 25-27, 26-24, 25-20.

“We definitely could have played better. We were making mistakes that we hadn’t been making in the past few weeks,” said coach Shane Farrell, whose team was making a fourth consecutive appearance at state. “But we were down (16-8) in the final game and came back right at them, so that was good. “If we were to play 10 times, I think we would have won six of them. But that didn’t happen (in the semifinal).” St. Charles won the Central Ohio Volleyball League title by going 10-0 to finish ahead of Watterson (8-2), Whetstone (5-5), DeSales (46), Gahanna Christian (2-8) and Licking Heights (1-9). The Cardinals had seven seniors, including six starters. Andy Sellan, a middle hitter who will play at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne, was first-team all-state and the East Region Player of the Year. Evan Doney, an outside hitter, was honorable mention all-state and first-team allregion.

Grant Dolven and Weston Niermeyer (below) of St. Charles competed in doubles in the Division I state tournament May 27 at Hilliard Davidson. The pair won their first-round match before losing a quarterfinal 6-1, 2-6, 6-2 to Springboro’s Ryan O’Gara and Zach Berry.

Landon Perry, a libero, was second-team allregion, and middle hitter Alec Jeffers was honorable mention all-region. Opposite-side hitter John Parent, defensive specialist Courtland Perry and setter Jonathan Stilp rounded out the senior class. “We had a great senior class and, because of that, we will be starting from scratch next year,” said Farrell, who was the East Region Coach of the Year. “When you have an Andy Sellan, who has started for us for three years, and someone like Evan Doney, who was a big part of the team for the last two years ... it will be tough to replace players like that.” Expected back are junior Tim Gartland (outside hitter) and sophomores Brian Burke (setter), Adam Reed (middle hitter) and Oliver Sarko (middle hitter). Freshmen included outside hitters Elliot Narcross and Kevin Summers.

Continued from page B1 and Michael Stoddard 6-2, 62 at first doubles. Christian Liefeld and Matt O’Hern beat CVCA’s Spencer Knowles and Aaron Reuben 63, 6-1 at second doubles. The championship hinged on the third-singles match between Bexley’s Gabe Coe, who was battling leg cramps, and CVCA’s Will Konston, who was battling the flu. Konston lost the first set but rallied for a 26, 6-2, 6-1 win. “Gabe gave it everything he had in the last two sets,” said coach G.J. Seckel, whose team finished 14-3 overall. “There’s nothing to be ashamed of to finish second in the state.” The Lions might not have made the final if not for the play of junior Will Gingery, a callup from junior varsity. Gingery and Schottenstein defeated Ezer Smith and Evan Alexander 6-1, 6-3 at second doubles to give Bexley a 3-2 victory over Columbus Academy on May 4, helping the Lions capture the first MSLOhio/Cardinal Division title. Gingery and Matt Wareti defeated Jared Clifton and Ryan Bibo 6-2, 7-5 at first doubles in a 3-2 victory over Watterson on May 23 in an OTCA district final. That victory sent Bexley to the state tournament for the first time in coach Seckel’s 22year career. As a kicker for the football

team, a guard for the basketball team and a pitcher for the baseball team, Gingery said he is used to pressure situations. “In the Watterson match it was 2-all and it came down to my court,” Gingery said. “I didn’t feel anything; I just went out there and played.” “For a junior varsity player to step up like that under that kind of pressure is incredible,” coach Seckel said. Playing for both the baseball and tennis teams was a challenge, Gingery said. He usually attended tennis practice until 5:30 p.m. and then would throw in the bullpen for the baseball team. Gingery is planning to focus on tennis next spring. Bexley swept the singles courts to score 47 points and finish ahead of Academy (43), Granville (29), Fisher Catholic (17), Grandview (15), Whitehall (8) and West Jefferson (2) in the MSL-Ohio/Cardinal tournament for its first league title since winning the Central Buckeye Conference in 2000.

The Vikings swept the doubles courts with Langston Hughes and Chris Perrini defeating David Seckel and Schottenstein 10-5 at first doubles and Academy’s Abram Schottenstein and Dan Leathery beating Liefeld and O’Hern 10-4 at second doubles. “Going into the season, we knew we had a pretty good chance to do some things,” coach Seckel said. The only goal the Lions didn’t accomplish was advancing an individual to state for the second consecutive year. Wareti and Liefeld lost to DeSales’ Michael Rosile and John Acomb 6-4, 7-5 and David Seckel and Goodstein lost to Watterson’s Aaron Casares and Clifton 6-3, 7-6 (7-0) in district quarterfinals.

Two area clubs captured their first State Cup titles, as the GNA F.C.

The Ohio Premier Eagles 2 U11 boys team beat Ohio Premier Eagles 1 7-4 in overtime in a State Cup final on May 22. The Ohio Premier Eagles club has

won three boys State Cup championships in the past two years. “We had two really good boys teams at the U-11 age level and they played a great game in the final, which was a win-win situation for our club,” Ohio Premier Eagles director and coach Chris King said. Shkreli, who has guided at least one Blast team to a State Cup championship for seven consecutive years, said the dominant run for central Ohio’s boys teams could end at any time, but he’s enjoying it while it lasts. “There’s a lot of talent and good coaching in Columbus, but honestly, the teams from around the state beat each other in league play all year,” Shkreli said. “It just goes in cycles. Columbus teams did really well in the State Cup this year, but the teams from Cincinnati and Dayton could win more State Cups next year. It’s youth soccer and kids are kids.” •Two central Ohio girls teams won State Cup titles this season. The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 squad beat Hammer F.C. Premier 2-1 in overtime in a final on May 22 and the Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 squad defeated the Blast F.C. 1-0 in a final May 15. The Ohio Premier Eagles U13 team won its second consec-

utive State Cup title on Kristin McFarland’s goal in overtime. The Ohio Premier Eagles U16 team won its fourth State Cup title as Lindsey Agnew scored the winning goal against the Blast off an assist by Kaitlin Miller. Last year, the Ohio Premier Eagles lost to the Blast 1-0 on penalty kicks in a State Cup final.

“Our U-16 team is very good and after we lost to the Blast last year, our focus was on taking back what was ours,” King said. “Lindsey Agnew had a couple of good scoring opportunities and our back line was very good.”

UNICORNS Continued from page B1 That relative inexperience, however, wasn’t evident, coach Lori Baldwin said. “It was a close race and she ran it exactly the way she was supposed to,” Baldwin said. “It seemed like none of the other girls wanted to lead. With 600 meters to go she picked it up. She got passed by a couple girls, but we told her that would probably happen. She pulled ahead of most of the group and all but the second-place girl at the finish line. She ran a very smart race.” CSG placed among the top eight in four other events and finished 16th (15) of 49 teams that scored at regional behind champion Hartley (82). Chatas joined Enri Small, Rosie Connor and Emma Harris on the 1,600 relay that placed sixth in 4:04.11 and Harris, Small and Laura Staravecka on the 3,200 relay that was sixth in 9:54.04. “We either PR’d or tied our PR in every race,” Baldwin said. •Holding back tears was difficult for the players and coaches on the lacrosse team after the Unicorns lost to Columbus Academy 14-13 in a Division II South/Region final May 26 at Westerville Central.

Bexley schools bid farewell to 2011 retirees Bexley City Schools said goodbye May 25 to five staff members who retire this spring. Each was recognized at the annual Education Appreciation Banquet at Capital University.  Julie Stewart, Cassingham second grade teacher, leaves with a total of 35 years in Bexley out of a 41-year career.  Vikki Almos, library assistant at Bexley High School, has worked in Bexley Schools for her entire 25-year career.  Ellen Miller, who has taught most recently at Bexley Middle School, will retire after 12 years in Bexley Schools and 28 years total.  Paula Hannahs, a Bexley High School administrative assistant who served in the counseling area, is retiring as well.  Penny Miller retires from teaching second grade at Montrose Elementary. She has been in Bexley Schools for 23 years of her 30 total years of teaching. Almos said that one of the

highlights of her years of service in Bexley has been the Andros Libraries Project that started in the summer of 2004 with a group of teachers traveling to the island in the Bahamas to set up the first school library at Stafford Creek Elementary. “I was part of that group. Students helped in preparing books and the library soon became the ‘center’ for this project,” she said. “Working with so many individuals to keep a volunteer project going has been a highlight and I feel fortunate that Rose Blanchard spearheaded the project and kept the rest of us involved.” Bexley High School’s Book Club and the accompanying book discussions with students have been another favorite activity. “It’s interesting to hear the students’ perspectives and gain insight into their thinking,” Almos said. She said her retirement plans include travel for she and her

husband. “I’m planning to spend more time on hobbies like quilting, gardening, cooking, and reading,” she said. “Generally, I will relax and take the time to enjoy and appreciate each day with family and friends.” “Each year has been my favorite,” Penny Miller said recently, reflecting on her teaching experience. “Each year is a new classroom full of new beginnings. Teaching is such a wonderful experience because each day is different. Each day brings new growth of at least one child.” She added that teaching at the primary grade levels was particularly rewarding. “You are around to notice how children change and grow over a span of time,” she said. She has few specific plans other than taking her children and grandchildren to the beach just as soon as school is out on June 8. “There are many things that I

have been waiting to have the time to do,” she said, listing “new learning and lots of travel” as next on the agenda. Penny Miller recounted one funny, unforgettable experience

that happened during her years of teaching. When Montrose Elementary was undergoing a renovation and construction project, one of the workers set off the fire alarm with a power tool.

“The entire building evacuated into a torrential downpour. We all had to stand in the rain until the fire trucks arrived to give the all clear,” she said. “It is funny now.”

148 celebrate graduation from Academy announces McCoy St. Charles Preparatory School as commencement speaker Baccalaureate Mass and graduation were celebrated May 27 at the Robert C. Walter Student Commons for the St. Charles Preparatory School Class of 2011. The class consists of 148 members who now have their names engraved on a glass plate that has been mounted on one of the Walter Student Commons’ columns. The engraved class list is a tradition for of every graduating class in school history, starting with the Class of 1927. St. Charles does not rank its students and graduates. There are no valedictorians or salutatorians. In the past, St. Charles has held a Baccalaureate Mass the night before graduation in the Mother of Mercy Chapel.

However, that space became too small to hold the growing enrollment of the senior class and their family members. So, in the spring of 2006, when construction of the Robert C. Walter Student Commons was completed, the Mass and graduation were combined and moved to that space. Among the awards presented May 27 were:  Principal’s Award for Outstanding Service to School and Community, awarded for leadership by example, attitude, disposition and courage: Evan Leo Doney.  The Bishop Herrmann Service Award and Scholarship, presented to one senior in each diocesan high school who has, by his exceptional service to the community, con-

tinued the work of Bishop Herrmann in the diocese: Thomas Parker Sinard.  Bishop Fulcher Memorial Award. Each year St. Charles recognizes one senior who has achieved excellence in creative writing, in drama, in the visual arts, in journalism, or in music: Alexander Ian Brown.  Monsignor Paul J. O’Dea Latin Award, given to the senior who attains the highest grade average for four years in the study of Latin: Weston Lawrence Niermeyer.  The Father Charles Jackson Leadership Medal, presented to the senior Student Council president for service to the school and the student body throughout the school year: Joseph Callahan O’Brien.

Columbus Academy will graduate 83 seniors at 9 a.m. Friday, June 10, marking the 98th class of the coeducational, independent school in Gahanna. John B. McCoy, retired chairman of Bank One Corp., will serve as commencement speaker 50 years after graduating from the academy, whose enrollment is 1,070 students in prekindergarten through grade 12. Columbus Academy’s valedictorian and other award winners will be announced during an honors assembly Wednesday, June 8. “The class of 2011 has been impressive in many areas,” said John Mackenzie, headmaster. “It includes students with remarkable strengths across all aspects of school life: academics, athletics, arts and activities. Many of the

students have won recognition for their accomplishments at the state and national level. These strengths have enabled them to offer important leadership to our younger grades and have won them admission to a broad range of very selective colleges.” Academy’s class of 2011 will be represented at 55 different colleges and universities. As the seniors approach graduation, Mackenzie said, most of them are appreciating how their experience at Columbus Academy has been shaped by the close friendships they have made with classmates and faculty members who have offered them guidance and support. “As Columbus Academy celebrates its 100th year, we could not be more proud of a senior class that has represented all the best values of this school,” Mackenzie said.

After graduating as class president from Columbus Academy in 1961, McCoy earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Williams College in 1965, and he received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the Williamstown, Mass., school in 1992. McCoy also has an MBA in finance from Stanford University and honorary doctorate degrees from the Ohio State University, Kenyon College and Michigan State University. In addition to his illustrious career at Bank One, McCoy is chairman of the board of trustees of Battelle Memorial Institute, sits on numerous advisory councils and is a director at several organizations, including AT&T, Onex Corp. and SKBHC Holdings. Graduation ceremonies will be held at the academy’s senior quad at the school, 4300 Cherry Bottom Road, Gahanna.
