Olentangy hopes to cut step-pay costs By TOM SHEEHAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Olentangy school board on June 22 approved a $157.3 million general fund budget for fiscal year 2012 that includes about $500,000 for all-day, everyday kindergarten for about 300 students and a freeze on step-pay increases for about 300 non-union classified staff. The step-pay freeze, along with no

base-pay increase for central-office supnot begun yet.

Both Lucas and treasurer Becky Jenkins said everything will be on the table when union negotiations are held. Despite approval in May of a threeyear, 7.9-mill levy and combination nonew-millage bond issue, school officials have said they still need to cut at least $9.3 million in about three years. They said they plan to spare academic programs from cuts. The all-day, everyday kindergarten

will affect about 20 percent of all kindergarten students. Currently, Olentangy offers all-day kindergarten to about 1,400 students on Mondays, Wednesdays and every other Friday.

State budget woes have dashed Liberty Township’s hopes of securing more grants to improve its parks. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is not funding two grant programs to which the township applied this year, letters from the department said. In winter, trustees paid a grant writer $15,000 to better their chances of scoring some state funding for a pedestrian trail and restrooms in parkland behind the YMCA,7798 N. Liberty Road. The site is referred to as South Liberty Park. Township administrator Dave Anderson on June 20 told township trustees the grant failure is a disappointment and an unforeseen circumstance. Anderson said the township applied for NatureWorks and Land Water Conservation Fund grants to help pay the $112,000 cost of a restroom facility. The township also applied for the Clean Ohio Trails Fund and Recreational Trails Program grants for $200,000 to help fund a pedestrian trail that would connect Olentangy Wyandot Run Elementary and Liberty Middle schools to the park, as well as provide for crossing lights at Woodland Glen Drive. The township planned to use bond proceeds remaining from building the YMCA facility, which can be used only to improve the site. Those proSee LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, page A2

Local governments meet new sign regulations By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Local government officials say nothing frustrates them more than unfunded mandates from the federal government. One such mandate is the new reflectivity standards for traffic and street signs. The standards take effect in 2015 for traffic signs and in 2018 for street-naming signs, area officials have said.

City of Powell Powell City Council’s operations committee discussed the city’s approach to meeting the standards June 21. City manager Steve Lutz in April said the city put some “stop” and “yield” sign decals on existing signs to meet the new standards established by the Federal Highway Administration in 2008. To avoid buying new traffic signs, the city’s public service Steve Lutz department is testing how easily the decals can be put on and how well they weather. Public service director Jeff Snyder has said the cost of decals, which is less than that of new signs, See LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, page A3

Olentangy hopes to cut step-pay costs Continued from page A1 School were those deemed most at-risk by assessments earlier this year. Sending children to the program is voluntary. “For right now, it’s a one-year (program),” Lucas said. “We’ll continue to monitor this.” He and other district officials think this will be money well spent. “Spending resources toward the most needy students obviously makes a lot of sense,” Lucas said. Providing more classroom time for those students should better prepare them for first grade, he said. Lucas said the district had been developing a plan to gradually implement statewide all-day, everyday kindergarten, when the Ohio Legislature eliminated the mandate. The district last year received a one-year waiver from

the requirement, saying the districtwide program would cost about $4.5-million a year. Also June 22, Lucas told the board the district wants to rehire two retiring administrators. Pamela J. Bachman, director of elementary curriculum and professional development, and Elizabeth E. Hutchinson, director of pupil services. Each will retire effective Aug. 1. The board will act on the rehirings at the July 20 meeting. If rehired, each would make $10,000 less a year. Bachman currently makes $90,464 annually and Hutchinson $95,089. Before the meeting, Lucas said both administrators are high-quality individuals with proven track records. They would be hired under one-year contracts. In the past few years, five people, including three teachers, have been rehired, saving about $130,000. The board also:

• Approved a weekly four-day, 10-hour-a-day summer work schedule for employees working in schools this summer. The shortened schedule means buildings will be closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays except for special events. The goal is to save about $70,000 in utility costs over a six-week period ending Aug. 5. • Approved a three-year contract with the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office to provide three resource officers for the district. Olentangy will pay $132,695 a year for the officers, which is half the cost. The sheriff’s office will pay the remainder. • Heard a short report from board member Kevin O’Brien, who is heading a task force to look at reducing health-care costs. O’Brien said he hopes the task force’s work can be completed in six months. The district pays about $20 million a year in healthcare costs.

Liberty Township loses bid for grants Continued from page A1 ceeds total about $300,000. The township also approved spending an additional $70,000 from another fund. Though the township could seek some of Delaware County’s $42,000 carryover balance from ODNR’s NatureWorks grant, trustees decided to wait until more funds are available. The township had sought $50,000 in NatureWorks funds. “It’s our sense we could probably do better if we waited another year and pursued it,” Anderson said. Anderson said a number of local governments would compete for the carryover funds. The township could use the same grant applications next year, with some minor number adjustments, Anderson said. He also said the bike path estimates from engineering firm Floyd Browne would need a bit of adjusting. The township paid $2,500 for those estimates. Trustees asked Anderson to talk with Pow-

ell and YMCA officials to see if it’s possible to collaborate and share costs on South Liberty Park improvements. In other park discussion, trustee Curt Sybert said the township should consider putting permanent restrooms in Havener Park on North Liberty Road. The park gets a lot of use and has portable toilets. “You can’t have a nice (park) facility like that and have that toilet that we have up there,” Sybert said. Anderson said the township could pursue grants for restrooms, but it would require matching funds from the general fund. Trustee Mary Carducci said because of the slow economy, she prefers the township put funds toward maintaining and improving roads. “I’m more concerned about roads and the general fund,” Carducci said. “We can’t spend money if we don’t have it.” Sybert said the township likely would receive more complaints about the lack of bathrooms than road conditions. bbutcher@thisweeknews.com

Solar panel project nears at City Hall By BONNIE BUTCHER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Powell’s city operations committee on June 21 heard that preliminary work began on the installation of a solar system for City Hall. When finished, the system is expected to produce half the electricity used by the building. The city met with the contractor, Thomas & Marker Construction Co. of Marysville, who is developing the plans for the solar panels’ installation, city manager Steve Lutz told council. Comple-

tion is expected in September. As part of the project, the city will have an interactive educational exhibit that will help educate the community on the project. The exhibit will include a device showing in real-time the energy produced by the solar panels, Lutz said. Council approved a $687,900 contract with the company June 7. The project is funded by an $821,861 federal energy-efficiency grant through the Ohio Department of Development. Council and committee member Brian Lorenz said, “Hopeful-

A closer look The project is funded by an $821,861 federal energy-efficiency grant through the Ohio Department of Development.

Local governments meet new sign regulations Continued from page A1 would vary, depending on the type of signs. A new 30-inch stop sign costs about $60 and the decal is $24. Decals cost less if bought in quantity, he said. Lutz said applying the decals is easier than had been anticipated. The city is taking an inventory of the signs it would need to change to meet the standards. Liberty Township Liberty Township began changing signs last year, said Randy Leib of the township’s road department. “By the end of this year, we should have all of our through streets meeting the standard, (and) next year we will begin working in the subdivisions,” Leib said. “We are using a blanket replacement method, meaning we replace every sign on the road we are working on. The old signs that are still in acceptable condition are reused as temporary replacements when other signs

are damaged. Signs that are removed and (that are) in unacceptable condition are recycled.” Liberty has used the opportunity to begin a sign inventory system, Leib said. “As each new sign is put up, it is labeled with a numbered inventory sticker and logged so we can keep track of each sign’s location and age,” Leib said. “All new signs are printed on highintensity prismatic sheeting and are expected to meet reflectivity standards for 10 years.” Leib said the township has budgeted $7,500 per year for the program. Orange Township Orange Township plans to use sign decals to meet the new standard, said Beth Hugh, township maintenance and parks director. The township is taking an inventory of the signs and will determine the costs, she said. “We are working on the replacement schedule and will phase the replacements with the main roads first (before) moving into the neighborhoods,” Hugh said.

the $687,900 contract. The city has heard comments about the savings not seeming to justify the cost, said city information officer Jeff Robinson. Lorenz said, “You’re always going to hear those comments.”

The grant also will fund the installation of LED and light sensors on city property, plus energy-efficient improvements in Adventure Park. Fischer said the city will have about $120,000 of the grant left over after construction costs. That money will be used for additional energy-saving features that will be approved by the state under the grant’s terms. “We are working on options to submit ... to the state for approval,” Fischer said. “Some items being considered for expansion ... include solar carports, (which) would be

over several spaces in our police department parking area (and) twoto four-car charging stations in the public lot. (The) hybrid (cars) coming out within the next year will be plug-in hybrids like the 2012 Prius. (Also planned are) additional LED lighting retrofits for our street lights as well as for 260 Adventure Park Drive. We are waiting to see what kinds of prices come back to us.” The grant money comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Awards for Local Governments.

ORANGE JULY 4TH PARADE Continued from page A1 including U.S. Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township). The U.S. Air Force will do a flyover, Taranto said. Around 5,000 spectators are expected, she said. Taranto started the parade eight years ago. “I came from Pickerington and I would walk down the parade route (there) and I knew every second or third person,” Taranto said. “And when I moved here 12 years ago, I didn’t know people. The way you get to know people

is by having a community event like that. And I went to Jim Agan a (township) trustee at the time. I asked him if it was possible and he jumped on the bandwagon for me. We were forming the business association at the time and we thought it was a good thing for us to do as a new group.” Taranto said that people from the city of Powell, especially Shea Alltmont, who was the city’s public relations and events coordinator at the time, helped them learn the ropes of putting on a parade. The city stages the Memorial Day parade and shared in-

formation with Orange Township Business Association members, Taranto said. “It’s all about being part of a community. I love the community I live in,” Taranto said. The cost of participating in the Freedom 4 Miler is $30 through race day. For more information, visit the Orange Township Business Association website at www. otba.net.

County seeks grant to keep felons out of trouble By SARAH SOLE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

The Delaware County Re-entry Coalition hopes to get about $750,000 from a U.S. Department of Justice grant to implement a training program to reduce the number of felons committing new crimes. The application for The Second Chance Act Adult Offender Re-entry Program for Planning and Demonstration Projects is due June 30. Funding comes from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The county would have to match half, or $375,000 of the total funds, $187,500 of which would have to be cash and the remainder of which could be in-kind. The Re-entry Coalition, in operation for two years, currently is funded through an Edward Byrne Memorial Grant from the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services. The Second Chance Act grant would enable the coalition to start providing services, said Re-entry Coalition coordinator Patricia Clements. “The goal is to keep folks out of public incarceration,” Clements said. The program would last for one year, and after that the coalition would seek out additional options for ongoing funding. Clements said the coalition likely won’t know until this fall if the grant is received. If it is, the coalition would start its program in January. The funding would allow for a 22-week training program for offenders. Clements said she anticipates about 100 program participants for 2012. All participants would be Delaware County residents between the ages of 18 and 60, who are assessed by the Ohio Risk Assessment System as moderate to high risk to commit new crimes. The target population would be those who have committed felonies and are incarcerated in state institutions or the county jail. Offenders would need to apply to be chosen. In training, participants would address anger management, learn to deal with disappointment and restructure their thinking regarding how they make choices and select peers, Clements said. Grant funds would allow Clements to become the program’s project director. Funding also would create three case coordinator positions. Case coordinators would contact offenders while they’re incarcerated and begin doing needs assessments. Each offender would have his or her own transition plan. Once a participant is released

The application for The Second Chance Act Adult Offender Re-entry Program for Planning and Demonstration Projects is due June 30. Funding comes from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The county would have to match half, or $375,000 of the total funds, $187,500 of which would have to be cash and the remainder of which could be in-kind.

from incarceration, case coordinators would monitor them for six months to one year. Clements said she also plans to track an offender’s ability to acquire and keep a job, to maintain stable housing, to follow through with mental health or substance abuse treatments and parenting. Grant funds also would go toward training local organizations in how to interact and provide evidence-based practices in dealing with offenders and community outreach. Clements said most participants would come from state penal institutions. Pending legislation — Senate Bill 10 and House Bill 186 — would give judges the ability to sentence non-violent fourth- and fifth-degree felons to intermediate sentencing instead of prison time. Nonviolent fourth- and fifth-degree felons would be housed in county jails, awaiting placement in treatment programs, community-based corrections facilities, reporting centers, veterans facilities, halfway houses, work release or probation. If individuals violate their terms of probation, they would be sent back to the county jail. The Delaware County Jail population would increase by 37 percent if the legislation is approved, sheriff Walter Davis has estimated. Clements said the recidivism rate is based on how many offenders return to prison within one year of release for conviction of a new crime or a technical violation of their parole. While no recidivism statistics are available for the jail, Clements said “we anticipate that that number is high.” The recidivism rate for Delaware Countians returning to state institutions was 37.2 percent in 2007 and 38.6 percent in 2008. Drug abuse, inability to pay child support and unemployment are the major factors that contribute to recidivism.

Commentary & opinion Just thinking

The storm before the calm As I speak, I’m following directions as given on several closely printed pages from a doctor’s office. The directions are lengthy, specific and repetitive, in the manner of instructions that have been re-written, re-worked and reorganized many times. They begin calmly and reasonably enough – “Water, clear fruit juices (apple, white grape) or broth” – then slide into capital letters and multiple exclamation points, like an exasperated mother: “NO SOLID FOODS, BEER, WINE, MILK OR MILK PRODUCT!!!” A person gets the feeling that whoever wrote these instructions has had it up to here with patients calling the office to ask, “Well, how about ice cream? Can I have that?” or just assuming that if white grape juice is OK, so is a nice Pinot Grigio or a liter or two of Chardonnay. “It’s a clear liquid, right? And really, practically a fruit juice.” As you may have guessed, I’m getting ready for one of those outpatient hospital procedures famous for being a breeze compared to the preparation of the day before. This isn’t my first such experience, so I feel like an expert, probably because lightheadedness brought on by the liquid diet has skewed my thinking. The first rule is stay off the Internet. It might seem like a good idea to see how nameless strangers fared during their days of procedure-prep, but trust me,

Weekly newspaper.

you’ll end up feeling like you spent the night in a Bangkok bus station. People who wouldn’t tell their coMARGO workers what BARTLETT they were doing on their days off will describe their most personal experiences in lurid detail on random message boards: Tales of dehydration, nausea and horrible over-the-counter mixtures you never heard of because those aren’t the ones your doctor has told you to use, while you read as if transfixed, your eyes round, your mouth ajar. Now, what’s the point of that? Turn off the computer. Focus on your own experience. You’re the only one you know undergoing procedure preparation today, right? Everybody else in the whole wide world is happily engaged in other things – playing with puppies, eating chocolate, frolicking in sunny meadows. For heaven’s sake, curl up in a comfortable chair, cry a little if you feel like it and think only of you. The second rule is come on. It’s not that bad. Really. It’s one day of drinking juice, eating Popsicles, spooning up Jell-O and maybe sipping broth as a special dinner course. Couldn’t we all benefit from a day away from what these instructions call Solid Foods? Our

entire digestive systems will thank us for it. I hear mine thanking me right now, in fact. It has a sort of growly voice, but I’m pretty sure the general tone is appreciative. And finally, the third rule, which is of course it’s terrible but it’s so adult. Remember when you were, oh, say 13 and you longed to be taken for a person much older, a person who had car keys and make up and plans for Saturday night? Well, now you’re older, and you have all those things and more:You have an appointment, which you made yourself like the big girl you are. Nobody wants to do this big inconvenient thing, of course, anymore than people want to have root canals or hip replacement surgery. They do it because the alternative is worse, because it’s the right thing to do, because they value their health more than they value the chance to eat SOLID FOODS, MILK OR MILK PRODUCT every last day of their lives. Having the test that means devoting the day before it to test prep is pretty much the most grown-up thing a person can do. It’s more adult than getting a driver’s license; more sophisticated than ordering a cocktail; more worldly wise than what’s her name, Lindsay Lohan. I’ll take it. With a chaser of magnesium citrate.

Wrestling

Weight classes adjusted for next season By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers Some area high school wrestling coaches aren’t pleased with the new guidelines for weight classes but realize their teams will need to adapt. The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) approved the changes during its meeting April 4-6 in Indianapolis. Tim Stried, director of information services for the Ohio High School Athletic Association, said the changes will

be in effect for the coming season. It is the first significant change in weight classes in 23 years. The lowest weight class, 103 pounds, is being increased to 106, which resulted in new weights in 10 of the 14 classes. The new weight classes are 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285. Only 145, 152, 160 and 285 remain unchanged. The previous weight classes were 103, 112, 119, 125, 130, 135, 140, 145, 152, 160, 171, 189, 215 and 285.

“The NFHS has been studying the weight classes in wrestling for several years to determine which weight classes are most appropriate for today’s student-athletes across the country that will result in fewer classes going unfilled,” Stried said. “These new weight classes are the result of countless hours of data analysis by the NFHS, and Ohio will certainly comply with the new weight classes. Like anything, it will take some time for our member schools to be comfortable with the changes, but we can all appreciate that the NFHS is

trying to do the right thing for kids.” Westerville North coach David Grant is concerned that the increase in the lowest weight to 106 will adversely affect lighter competitors. Grant said his 103-pounder last season, Santino DiSabato, weighed between 85 and 90 pounds, but now is moving closer to 106 in preparation for next season. “I don’t like the weight class changes because it hurts the kids that are little,” Grant said. “I have Santino DiSabato, who had a hard time making 103. Now

they take it to 106, so it hurts the younger kids, the freshmen. You’re going to have a lot of kids not able to be competitive at that weight. They’re too young, too little.” Hilliard Davidson coach Dominic DiSabato, Santino’s uncle, is not in favor of the shift in weight classes. “For our program, I’m not a big fan of it,” he said. “We’ll try to get every weight class filled and then wrestle. It will hurt us in duals. Hopefully, we See WRESTLING page B6

Commentary

Athletes strive to excel in school Last week, the student-athletes writing in my summer series discussed the importance of balancing their time to prepare for and excel in both the classroom and in competition. This week, the seniors-tobe are focusing on the importance of having a good academic LARRY record. LARSON Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “In school, if you study and work hard, good grades will come; you can always count on that. In sports, even if you practice hard and play hard, you cannot always play well or perform well just because of the substantial amount of luck it involves. Studying has always got your back, sports do not.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Academic success really helps in the long run, especially with colleges who love it when you can make an impact both on and off the field.” Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “My goal was always to play Division I golf at a school with strong academics. Coaches definitely look at your grade-point average and standardized test scores, so be prepared.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “Grades are very important because they only help you look better as an athlete and as a successful person.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I always have felt as though someone with a good academic record shows a great amount of potential for strong leadership. In this world, you are either leading your own life or waiting for someone to do it for you. You don’t want that.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “A strong academic record is important because it allows you to keep your options open for college and beyond. It is also important to remember that sports are just a segment of life and so I strive to be a well-rounded person.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Colleges look at your whole schooling career, not just one year. You have much better chances being a great student than being a great athlete.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “Great academics can open up many doors if you are seeking to play sports at the college level. Even if playing at the next level isn’t your dream, good grades and good test scores are essential for applying to colleges.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “With a good academic record comes great discipline. This discipline carries over into sports and daily life.” Next week, the student-ath-

Olentangy graduate Kyle Moses, the first Braves player to be named an All-American, has signed to play at High Point University in North Carolina.

Lacrosse

High Point is next step for Moses By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Kyle Moses can’t wait to play college lacrosse, but the 2011 Olentangy High School graduate knows that he will have to be patient. A defender who recently became the first player in the history of the Braves’ program to be named All-American, Moses has signed with High Point University in North Carolina. Last September, High Point announced it was adding lacrosse as part of a $2.1 billion growth plan, but the team will not play its first varsity game until the 2013 season. “At first, I’ll admit I was skeptical,” Moses said. “Like anyone else, I wanted to go somewhere and play right away. But I’m not going to be losing a year of eligibility. It’s going to give the team some time to get used to playing with each other. “It’s going to be a little weird next spring. We don’t have any games to look forward to, but I think in the long run it’s going to work out for the best. We get to learn what collegiate lacrosse is like before we ever take the field.”

High Point will become the third Division I lacrosse program in North Carolina, joining Duke and the University of North Carolina. Until last fall, Moses hadn’t heard of High Point, a school nestled in the Appalachian region of North Carolina, and probably still wouldn’t know about it if not for coach Jon Torpey. A 2000 graduate of Ohio State, Torpey was an associate coach at Dartmouth College who tried to recruit Moses to play for the Big Green. When Torpey was named coach at High Point, Moses was one of the first players he called. “Kyle is the type of guy we want to build our program with,” Torpey said. “More than being a great lacrosse player, he’s a fantastic guy. He’s a great student as well as a great lacrosse player. He’s the total package.” “To be honest, I had no idea High Point existed,” Moses said. “(Torpey) called me, I went there and committed to the program a couple of weeks after hearing about it. It’s a beautiful campus. It has a great Southern feel to it. Everyone we met down there would say hello and asked me what See MOSES, page B4

Area players named to All-American teams By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Eight area high school lacrosse teams placed seniors on the All-American and Academic All-American boys and girls teams announced by U.S. Lacrosse. Attacker Ryan Borcherding of Dublin Coffman, attacker Leo Horine and defender John Horner of Dublin Jerome, defender Kyle Moses of Olentangy and midfielder Luke Treece and attacker Cam Williams of Upper Arlington were boys first-team All-Americans.

In addition, UA midfielder Ben Grindle-deGraff, Hilliard Davidson defender Matt Arthur and Westerville Central midfielder Jake Marburger were named Academic All-Americans. UA attacker Adriane Ghidotti was the only central Ohio girls player named first-team All-American. Wellington attacker Grace Korandovich and Thomas Worthington midfielder Lily Yednock were honorable mention selections. Horine and Horner helped Jerome finish 19-1 overall and See LACROSSE, page B6

Club Soccer

Two teams win pools, advance to semis By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Only two of the nine central Ohio boys and girls soccer teams competing in the Midwest Regional Cup, held June 25-29 in Fox Cities, Wis., won their four-team pool to advance to a semifinal. Four of seven local squads reached a semifinal in 2009 and three of eight area teams made it to a semifinal last year. However, Crew Juniors Under-19 coach Brian Bliss said the decrease in central Ohio pool-play winners probably was because of bad luck and not a lack of talent or effort. Bliss led the Crew Juniors U-19 boys squad to regional and national titles last year. This year’s Crew Juniors U19 boys team, which didn’t retain any of last year’s players, went 1-0-2 to finish second in its pool. “There’s some luck involved in being By Patrick Ferron/ThisWeek able to win this tournament, and in our Alexis Milesky of the Ohio Premier Eagles U-16 team case, it ended up being the bad luck of controls the ball against Kansas City Fusion during a getting a tough draw,” Bliss said. “This See LARSON, page B5 game of the 2011 Midwest Regional Cup. team has as much or more talent than

Regional champions in the U-14 through U-19 age groups advanced to the national event July 27-31 in Phoenix. The Ohio Premier Eagles’U-18 and U-19 teams each went 2-1 to finish second in their pools. Ohio Premier Eagles U-13 coach Kevin Dougherty was surprised to see his squad outscore its three pool play opponents 12-1. “It’s pretty unusual to win three games here the way we did because all the teams competing here are very good,” Dougherty said. “The way our U-16 team made it is more typical of this kind of tournament because there isn’t much separating most teams from a win or loss here.” All five local boys teams fell short of qualifying. The Crew Juniors U-19 and Team Ohio F.C. Blast U-18 (1-11 in pool play) each finished second in their pools, and the Classics Eagles U13 (1-1-1), Team Ohio F.C. Green U17 (0-1-2) and Team Ohio F.C. Juventus U-16 (1-2) each placed third.

we had last year, but we drew into a tougher group where every game was tough. If we would have drawn into a different group we may have gone on to win this again, but we had to spend a ton of energy in the three games we played here and we didn’t even make it out of our pool. The (blind draw for pool play) is one of the biggest reasons you rarely see a club win this tournament two or three years in a row.” The one local club that did fare well this year was the Ohio Premier Eagles, which advanced two of its four representatives to semifinals. The Ohio Premier Eagles’four girls teams combined to go 10-2 in pool play. Its U-13 squad went 3-0 to win its pool and its U-16 team advanced on a tiebreaker by beating Eclipse Select of Illinois 1-0 on penalty kicks. In semifinals played June 28, the U13 team played Eclipse Select and the U-16 team played KCFC Force from ablankenship@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com Kansas. The finals were June 29.

2011 Midwest Regional Cup

Team Ohio F.C.

U-18 boys settle for 2nd in pool play By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Team Ohio F.C. Blast Under-18 boys soccer team found itself with a shortened bench in the Midwest Regional Cup in Fox Cities, Wis., after defender Angelo Pagani and midfielder Drew Pang were injured in the first game. Despite the loss of those starters, Team Ohio Blast managed to go 1-0-1 in its first two pool-play games, tying CUP Crew Juniors from Cincinnati at 2 on June 25 and beating the Michigan Wolves 3-0 on June 26. However, it couldn’t overcome the ejection of starting defender Max Rohda less than 20 minutes into its final game of pool play June 27 and lost to the KCFC Rangers from Kansas 1-0. The KCFC Rangers won their four-team pool with a 3-0 record and nine points to advance to a semifinal June 28, while Team Ohio Blast finished second (11-1, 4). “That was a nightmare because we had a player sent off the field for a penalty that didn’t happen,” coach Steve Dawson said. “We had three players collide and the referee gave (Rohda) a red card out of it. They got a penalty shot on that play, too, and our goalkeeper (A.J. Fleak) made a great save to keep us in the game. Our team dealt with the situation the best they could and Colton Bloecher had a couple of great opportunities where he could have scored, as did Frazier Fernandes. But it was tough to play with 10 men because it was warm and it was our third game in three days. Our players grew tired as the game wore on and we finally gave up a goal with about 20 minutes left.” Jesus Villarroel and Bloecher each scored goals to help Team Ohio Blast rally from a 2-0 deficit to tie CUP Crew Juniors. The following day, Bloecher, Villarroel and Fernandes scored as Team Ohio Blast defeated the Michigan Wolves. “We had some injuries, but we played well overall and came one win away from making it past group play,” Dawson said. •The Team Ohio Green U17 boys team went 0-1-2 to finish third in its pool with two points behind Grand Rapids (Mich.) Crew Juniors (3-0, 9) and Elm Grove (Wis.) Premier (1-1-1, 4).

Team Ohio Green opened June 25 by tying Shattuck-St. Mary’s from Minnesota at 1, as Ray Gans scored the tying goal on a penalty kick with 20 minutes remaining. The next day, Team Ohio Green battled Elm Grove Premier to a scoreless tie behind goalkeeper A.J. Tresoline. “It’s frustrating because we played better than both those teams and should have beaten them, but we didn’t finish our chances,” defender A.G. Basiakos said. “We played great defense, but we didn’t score enough to win.” On June 27, Team Ohio Green lost to the Grand Rapids Crew Juniors 4-2 despite goals from Ryan Magee and Trevin Pitroff. The Grand Rapids Crew Juniors, who are ranked first in the U.S. Region 2 club soccer rankings, outscored their first two opponents 11-0. “We were the first team to score against Grand Rapids and By Patrick Ferron/ThisWeek we were down only 3-2 late in Sage Gardner of the Ohio Crew Juniors U-19 team chases down the ball on June 25 during a game against St. Croix, Minn.

2011 Midwest Regional Cup

Classics Eagles

Missed chances haunt U-13 boys team By AARON BLANKENSHIP ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Even though the Classics Eagles Under-13 boys soccer team had squandered several scoring chances against the Wichita (Kan.) Lightning in its Midwest Regional Cup opener June 25, coach Mike Lentz felt comfortable with a late one-goal lead because his squad was dominating possession. However, those missed opportunities came back to haunt the Classics Eagles. A Lightning player drew a foul 19 yards from the team’s goal with under a minute

left and scored on a free kick to tie the game at 1. That tie proved costly to the Classics Eagles in the tournament in Fox Cities, Wis. They lost to Vardar from Michigan 4-0 the following day and eventually finished third in their four-team pool with a 1-1-1 record and four points behind Cleveland Pacesetter (2-1, 6) and Vardar (2-1, 6). Out of the Classics Eagles’pool, only Cleveland Pacesetter advanced to a regional semifinal June 28. Cleveland Pacesetter finished first on a tiebreaker because it had beaten Vardar.

Nick Teutsch beat three defenders en route to scoring on a low, hard shot just inside the far post to put the Classics Eagles ahead 1-0 in the first half against the Lightning. Will Bolton almost made it 2-0 with 20 minutes left, but his shot hit the left post. “We had total ball control and we only gave up one shot on goal each half, so I felt pretty comfortable in the way we were playing even after we missed out on all of those chances to score a second goal,� Lentz said. “But we got called for a foul and gave up that late goal, and

it took away our momentum and confidence. Had we won that game, I’d like to think we’d have played much better against Vardar. Knowing we had to beat Vardar to have a chance to win our pool, we pushed forward a little more than usual, which left us more vulnerable defensively. And we just didn’t match Vardar’s intensity.� The Classics Eagles concluded pool play June 27 with a 2-0 victory over Cleveland Pacesetter. A.J. Smith scored what would become the winner 12 minutes into the game from 25 yards out.

In the second half, Teutsch scored off an assist from Jake Harr and goalkeeper A.J. Smith made a diving save to his left to preserve the shutout. “That was the best we’ve played all spring,� Lentz said. “We dismantled them in every category, especially when it came to shots on goal and time of possession. It was nice to beat our group winner. We finished a great spring run with a commanding performance.� ablankenship@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Ohio Premier

Eagles advance two girls squads to semis By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Ohio Premier Eagles advanced two of four girls soccer teams to Midwest Regional Cup semifinals after pool play concluded June 27 in Fox Cities, Wis. Ohio Premier went 10-2 overall in pool play. The Under-13 and U-16 squads both went 3-0 in pool play and played in semifinals June 28. The regional winners in the U-14 through U-19 age groups, which were determined June 29, advanced to the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships in Phoenix on July 27-31. The Eagles U-13 team played Eclipse Select of Illinois in its semifinal. Eclipse is a familiar opponent for Ohio Premier. “Unfortunately, our semifinal is the one that everyone says should be the final, but in a blind draw, this happens,â€? coach Kevin Dougherty said. “We’re friends with the Eclipse and know a lot about them. They have a huge organization that draws from a large area. We’ve played all five of their 13U club teams, but then they combine their best players for the tournaments. They have many very special players.â€? The Eagles defeated Carmel (Ind.) United SC Elite 3-1 to open pool play. They then beat Greater Toledo FC 5-0 and advanced to a semifinal by beating Centennial (Minn.) 4-0. Against Carmel, Kristen McFarland scored twice and Alivia Milesky also scored. Sam Grim made four saves but allowed a late goal. She then earned the shutout against Toledo, as McFarland scored and assisted on goals by Madison Moroi and Aubrei Corder. Milesky and Bailey Williams also scored. Against Centennial, Moroi had two goals. Corder and McFarland also scored and Grim and Parker Myers were rarely challenged in net. “We scored three goals in the first nine minutes and just began moving girls around, having some fun, working on some things and just trying not to get anyone injured,â€? Dougherty said. •The U-16 team had to get past Eclipse Select in pool play to advance, and the Eagles did that in dramatic fashion in the finale to move on to a semifinal against KC Force on June 28. The Eagles beat Eclipse Select on the 10th penalty kick after neither team had scored entering the penalty kicks sessions. Both teams scored on two of five penalty kicks to force the extra one-kick rounds, where they matched each other’s efforts until Bailey Wilson converted in the 10th round after Eagles goalkeeper Anna Rosa James-Buhigas had stopped Eclipse’s 10th kick. James-Buhigas made five saves in the penalty kicks phase. “She was unbelievable and came up with huge saves when we needed them,â€? said coach Chris King, whose team outscored its opponents 10-0 in pool play. “Usually, you tell the keeper to get one save in (penalty kicks) and we’ll win it. She had

saves on five of 10 penalty kicks and they were off frame with another. She was just outstanding.â€? The Eagles won their first two games 7-0 against KC Fusion and 3-0 against Michigan Football Club to put themselves into a points tie with Eclipse before their showdown. “The maximum goal-differential in tiebreakers here is four per game, so both us and Eclipse had seven total points entering (the June 27 pool finale),â€? said King, who also guided the Eagles’ U-18 team to the regional tournament. “We knew going into it that there had to be a winner and that it could go to penalty kicks. One team was going to the semifinal and the other was going home.â€? Two years ago, the clubs played in the U-16 regional championship and the Eclipse won in a shootout to send the Eagles home. Against the Fusion, the Eagles used three goals from Lindsay Agnew and one apiece from Nicole Hopkins, Alexis Milesky, Hannah O’Shaughnessy and Brooke Maletic. O’Shaughnessy, Milesky and Agnew scored against Michigan Football Club. The defense was strong in front of James-Buhigas, who made just five total saves in the first two pool games. •The U-19 team went 2-1 in pool play and did not advance. The Eagles opened by beating Dynamo of Indiana 5-1 before losing to defending regional champion Eclipse (Ill.) 3-0 and beating Bloomfield (Mich.) 5-1 in the finale. Against Dynamo, Sarah Gross scored twice. Also scoring were Nadja Kolliesuah, Ellie Gavin and

Casey Barrett. Shannon Flowers made three saves. Against Eclipse, the teams played a scoreless first half. The Eagles trailed 1-0 with about 10 minutes left when they changed their strategy to try to apply more offensive pressure. “The first half was evenly contested, but we should’ve scored first and led at half,� coach Matt Ogden said. “We needed at least a draw, so it didn’t matter if the final was 1-nil or 3-nil. We had 13 players and they wore us down in the second half. But if we score first, we can play a little different style and try to preserve the lead and get a positive result.� The Eagles got goals from Barrett, Gross, Andrea Hulls and Amber Kern in the finale, as well as an own-goal from Bloomfield. “We had nothing to play for, so we made it a farewell game for these girls who have played together for a long time,� Ogden said. “Flowers marshaled the box pretty well, but we controlled tempo and possession throughout after we fell behind 10. We definitely feel that we are a team worthy of advancing, but it wasn’t meant to be. If we played Eclipse on a different day, things might have been different. But we made mistakes and that’s soccer.

We came back and played hearts-out and that was fantastic.â€? •The U-18 team went 2-1 in pool play and did not advance. The Eagles lost their opener 3-1 to KCFC Intensity. They beat Eden Prairie (Minn.) 2-1 and then won 5-2 over Dakota Alliance Black of South Dakota. King was disappointed by the opening loss, but credited the Intensity. “That’s the best team we’ve played in the last two seasons,â€? King said. “We were down 2-1 and gave ourselves a couple good chances to even it up. But we were unable to do that and we started pressing and got caught forward. We exposed ourselves and they got the extra goal.â€? Ashley Gruenbaum scored for Ohio Premier. The Eagles trailed Eden Prairie 1-0 after allowing a goal just before halftime. But Jesse Sabers tied it and Michela Paradiso scored the winner with around 11 minutes remaining. Goalie Abbey Smith preserved the win from there. bemerine@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

“I was exposed to the best players and the best coaching in the country,” he said. “I tried to make a mental notebook of what I was seeing and hearing there. I tried to take a little bit of the things I learned and incorporate that into my game.” This spring, Moses helped Olentangy finish 11-8 overall. The Braves lost to New Albany 12-5 in the first round of the Division II regional tournament. Moses was named first-team all-OCC-Ohio Division and second-team all-state and was one of six central Ohio players to be named to the All-American team. “Kyle has been a huge asset to the program,” Braves coach Mike Kinney said. “He is a guy that takes lacrosse very seriously. He has helped raised the bar for future defenders at Olentangy.”

we thought about the place.” A former football player, Moses prides himself on being able to deliver solid hits. “I like to give out hard checks,” he said. “A lot of guys avoid me in practice.” Torpey first analyzed Moses’ game at the Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip lacrosse camp at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County last summer. “We were looking for guys who were good on the ball, off the ball and with the ball,” Torpey said. “I loved what Kyle was doing off the ball and covering the ball. I think he’s going to be great in helping others learn what we want to do.” Moses also participated in the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic last July at Towson University in Maryland. He said he learned a lot about his game at the lacrosse showcas- pbatterson@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com es.

Learn at the Zoo

While living here she became part of an important breeding program. She mothered 20 eaglets that were released into the wild. Then in 2008 we received great news that bald eagles were down listed to Threatened in Ohio! Here’s a picture of one of her eaglets born at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

Juvenile eagles look very different from adult eagles. The eagle’s first feathers are all brown, including their head and tail; like this picture of Cheyenne who lives at the Zoo too. They also have a dark beak that turns yellow as they mature. These changes take place during the first five years of their life.

LACROSSE Continued from page B1 win the Division II state title with a 13-4 win over Hunting Valley University School in the final on June 4 at Westerville Central. Moses said he tried to show no emotion after coach Mike Kinney told him he had been selected as Olentangy’s first AllAmerican. Moses, who has signed to play at High Point University in North Carolina, thought Kinney might be kidding. “When my coach told me I was nominated, I was excited more than anything else, but I thought I didn’t have any chance of earning the honor,” Moses said. “When (Kinney) told me later I was selected, I wanted to scream and yell, but my coach

is a little bit of a jokester, so I didn’t do anything. “I knew that I had put the time and the effort in and went to a lot of summer tournaments, but I was very surprised.” Ghidotti, an honorable mention All-American last year, said she found out before the Golden Bears’ Division I state semifinal against Hudson on June 3 that she had made first-team AllAmerican. “Paul Caldwell (the former Coffman coach who runs the NorthStar summer league) called me and said, ‘I don’t want to put any pressure on you, but you were just named first-team All-American,’” said Ghidotti, who scored three goals in a 13-11 win over Hudson. “I was like, ‘Oh great, now there’s a ton of pressure.’ It

was very exciting for me and gave me a lot of extra energy.” Ghidotti, a University of Connecticut signee, said dealing with expectations in lacrosse is a way of life at UA. The girls team, which lost to Medina 14-13 in the state title game and finished 16-5 overall, has reached the state final the past four years, while the boys team had a string of 19 consecutive state final appearances snapped this season with a 10-4 loss to Worthington Kilbourne in a Central Region final on May 28. “The tradition is so rich at Upper Arlington,” Ghidotti said. “We all have to live up to this (standard of) excellence.” pbatterson@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

WRESTLING Continued from page B1 have a couple bigger kids coming out for the team next year and it won’t hurt us as bad as it could have in the past. We just have to have our wrestlers wrestle the best they can. The other schools are in the same position we are.” Marysville coach Shawn Andrews said his program will adapt to the new guidelines, and he believes the changes actually might help his team next season. Andrews said he expects the lower weights to be a strength of his program. “Looking at it selfishly for a year or two, it helps Marysville specifically because it’s where we have more guys than less guys, but in the broad scope of wrestling, it seems a little odd that they took away a weight class from some of the weight

classes that are most competitive and then added some at the top,” Andrews said. “It helps some kids from football or some kids who are concerned about losing too much weight between 171 and 189.” According to the NFHS, the last major change in weight classes occurred in 1988, when the lowest class was increased from 98 to 103. The only other changes since then were in 2002, when the number of classes went from 13 to 14 and the 215-pound weight class became mandatory, and in 2006, when the 275pound class was increased to 285. The NFHS also adopted a rule change involving the figure four hold around the head, which now is illegal. Previously, the figure four was illegal around the body or both legs. “I like the new rule, it will work out,” Grant said. “The fig-

ure four is unfair. It’s a pretty big advantage to have that locked up like that. I don’t like the figure four. ... Two legs against the neck is usually not a good idea.” In another change, the boundary line now is considered inbounds. Previously, a wrestler was out of bounds if he or she was touching any part of the line, which is two inches wide. “I like expanding the mat a little bit and having the line inbounds instead of out of bounds,” coach DiSabato said. “I’m just curious how it’s going to be called because of the size of the gyms. The mats are closer together, but you award the aggressor as much as you can and that tends to help out if the line is inbounds rather than out of bounds.” fdirenna@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

I needed to sell my house due to a change in my job/financial status; however, my home value had declined since I purchased several years ago. Heather diligently worked with my lender to negotiate a short sale and she stuck with me every step of the way. Her marketing strategy gave my home a great amount of exposure, and her persistence helped move the short sale process along quickly. Because of the work of Heather and her team, I was able to avoid a possible foreclosure and can now move forward in my life. Heather is an exceptional realtor and I am very grateful to her for her continuous hard work, dedication, and constant commitment to helping me through the short sale process. Thanks Heather!
