New turf installed at TWHS stadium By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The new artificial turf at the Thomas Worthington High School stadium is expected to have a real impact on the whole community. “We’re so excited,” athletics director Dan Girard said on Aug. 9 as he reviewed all of the new ways the high school stadium could be used after the artificial ground cover is ready. That will be on Aug. 26, he said, a week later than planned. The original green cover placed over the field earlier this week has to be removed because of a defect in the manufacturing process. The Motz Group of Cincinnati discovered the problem and was supposed to lay the new turf today (Aug. 11), Girard said. Six junior varsity and varsity soccer games will have to be rescheduled because of the delay. Once all is ready, though, the new ground cover will provide a safer surface for all athletes, will require less maintenance than grass fields, and

will allow the stadium to be used much more than in the past. No longer will use be limited to about 40 events a year. Now all field teams — from football and soccer to lacrosse and field hockey — will be able to play in stadium. Not just varsity teams will play there, either. Junior varsity and freshman teams will play contests there, the band will play there, and physical education classes can be held there. On Sundays, youth booster games will now be played in what is expected to become one of the community’s showplaces. “Aesthetically, it makes the place top-notch for the kids,” Girard said. The use will extend beyond students. Community events, from Independence Day celebrations to picnics, can be held on the artificial turf. The turf project was financed through fund

School district to put ‘overflow’ policy in writing


By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Parents who move into the Worthington school district believing their children will attend a neighborhood school are sometimes surprised when those children are forced to ride a bus to a different school. Such overflow occurs when classrooms become overcrowded. It is more cost-effective to pay for a student to ride the bus to another school than to pay for additional teachers for smaller classes, said Worthington administrator George Joseph. The Worthington Board of Education does not plan to change that policy, but it has instructed Joseph to put it in writing and distribute it to families who move into the district. The overflow policy is not new. Fiftynine students were sent to schools outside of their neighborhoods last year. Board members have been receiving complaints recently, and told Rachael Dorothy on Aug. 8 that they plan to put the policy in writing. Dorothy, president of the Colonial Hills Civic Association, said she has heard from several neighborhood families that their children will be bused out of the subdivision to Wilson Hill Elementary School this year. The district begins assigning new stu-

dents to out-of-neighborhood schools when classrooms reach capacity. Primary classrooms, which include grades one through three, should contain 23 to 27 students. The ideal fourth- to sixth-grade class capacity is 28 or 29 students, according to board policy. Administrators try to plan for acceptable class sizes, but sometimes the numbers do not work, and sometimes overflow happens when families move in near the beginning of the school year. There are times when new students are bumped by open enrollment students. All students are eligible to “open-enroll” at any school in the district as long as there is space and they provide their own transportation. Educators try to inform open-enrollment students of their school assignment by July. If a class then becomes full, a new student will be bumped rather than the openSee POLICY, page A2

One exits school board race; one enters bid for council seat By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Steve Kucinski has dropped out of the Worthington Board of Education race. “I was very excited about the possibility, but I thought it was in my best interest to step out of the way,” he said. Kucinski is a languagearts teacher-leader at Dublin

Coffman High School. His wife teaches music in the Worthington schools. They have three children and live in Colonial Hills. The campaign might have been too stressful for his family and him, he said. With financial constraints and collective bargaining expected to be issues in the race, the salaries and benefits of teachers likely will be part of the dis-

cussion. Instead, Kucinski will work with an organization of parents to communicate about problems and to spread good news about the schools, he said. That leaves three announced candidates for two open seats on the board. Board members Julie Keegan and Charlie Wilson both plan to run for reelection. The third candidate is John Hyre, a tax lawyer, accountant and real estate See RACES, page A2

By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers Two years ago, the Worthington Food Pantry and Resource Center opened in a small building on the campus of the United Methodist Children’s Home. That first month, a few volunteers distributed food to 25 families. Today volunteers number more than 300; the pantry is in large, modern quarters on the Harding Hospital campus; and 879 people received assistance in June. With that kind of growth, and more needs to be met, the pantry’s board of directors recently decided it was time to hire its first paid employee. Debra Gray Boyd started as the first paid, part-time executive director in June. Her job is to make sure Worthington school district residents receive the food and assistance they need. “I love my new job,” Boyd said. “I enjoy getting to connect people and organizations to better help our neighbors.” The pantry, located in the old Harding cafeteria and kitchen, is open three times

a week. Shelves are lined with all kinds of food that can be selected by clients, who are referred by social service agencies. Each family can take home enough food for three days on each visit. Besides food, the center helps with utility bills, job searches, furniture and other basic needs. The more than 300 volunteers include businesses that have donated fixtures and furniture as well as money and food; organizations such as the Dublin-Worthington Rotary Club; and schools and faith-based organizations. “It has really been everyone pulling it all together,” Boyd said. Boyd, from Upper Arlington, has a master’s degree in organization development and change management from Bowling Green State University. She has worked with small and large businesses has owned her own small business, and has been involved with other nonprofit organizations. See PANTRY, page A2

drives, corporate and private donations, and a brick-paver fundraiser. Total cost is expected to be $619,000. Of that, approximately $101,000 was paid by taxpayers with bond issue money that was approved by voters in 2006. That money was earmarked for improvements to the sod at the stadium. The biggest individual contributor was Dennis Hamilton, who donated in excess of $250,000. He has a son who is a sophomore and one who is an eighthgrader. Hamilton said he wanted to see freshman and junior varsity teams have an opportunity to play in the stadium, and wanted the field to look better for the whole community. His sons have played select soccer in some attractive stadiums, and he wanted the local teams to be proud of their facilities as well. “I wanted to see everyone get a chance to use the stadium,” he said.

Overflow students are sent to the nearest school possible, and are put on a list to be reassigned to their neighborhood school as soon as a position becomes available, Joseph said. Also at Monday’s board meeting, Superintendent Thomas Tucker said he would look at changing the 2011-12 calendar as soon as possible. The calendar calls for students to return to school following winter break on Jan.2, 2012. Joseph said the district’s calendar committee realized Jan. 2 was a federal holiday, but didn’t think that would interfere with school. The idea was to get students back to class as soon as possible, he said. Now winter break may end on Jan. 3. It seems that because Jan. 1 is a Sunday, which is the day National Football League games are played, the college bowl games usually played on Jan. 1 will be played Jan. 2 next year. One option is to move the start of winter break from Dec. 21 to Dec. 22. Also, a day could be added to the end of the school year, or adjustments made to the spring break schedule, Joseph said. Board members Julie Keegan and David Bressman tried to distance themselves from the notion that the school calendar is based on the NFL/college football schedule. “I don’t want to hear we’re doing it because it is related to some sports activity,” Bressman said.

Faith and Fellowship

From Our Daily Bread Written by Phillip Yancy

For a good portion of my life, I shared the perspective of those who rail against God for allowing pain. I could find no way to rationalize a world as toxic as this one. As I visited people whose pain far exceeded my own, though, I was surprised by its effects. Suffering seemed as likely to reinforce faith as to sow doubt.

My anger about pain has melted mostly for one reason: I have come to know God. He has given me joy and love and happiness and goodness. It leaves me with faith in a Person, a faith so solid that no amount of suffering can erode it. Where is God when it hurts? He has been there from the beginning. He designed a pain system that, in the midst of a fallen world, bears His stamp. He transforms pain, using it to teach and strengthen us if we allow it to turn us toward Him.

August 10, 2009 it was discovered that Sam had bone cancer. After a courageous battle against the cancer that included an amputation of one leg, surgery on the other leg, removal of cancer from both of his lungs, as well as chemotherapy, Sam’s body could endure no more. After returning from his Make a Wish trip to Disney World in July 2010, it was discovered that the cancer was growing rapidly in too many places to treat. He went home from Nationwide Children’s Hospital to be with his mother and father to live the last of his days on Earth. While Sam’s body could no longer fight, his mind could. Sam did not want to die. His family and friends did not want him to die…But God had a different plan. During his time in hospice care, surrounded by those who loved him best, Sam mostly came to accept that he would not continue life among us. His hope laid in the knowledge that Jesus and his beloved grandfather Greg, his great grandmothers Martha and Kathryn were waiting for him in Heaven.

He has hurt and bled and cried and suffered. He has dignified for all time those who suffer, by sharing their pain. But one day He will gather the armies of heaven and will unleash them against the enemies of God. The world will see one last terrifying moment of suffering before the full victory is ushered in. Then God will create for us a new, incredible world. And pain will be no more (Rev. 19:11–22:6). He left His Father’s throne above, So free, so infinite His grace! Emptied Himself of all but love, And bled for Adam’s helpless race. —Wesley Pain will either turn us against God or draw us to Him. _____________________________________________ O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? __1 Corinthians 15:55

Sam took comfort in the knowledge that God does not count time as we do, and that he would see his family again “in a blink of an eye.”

Sam and his family believed that God could and would heal him from the cancer. The problem for many was that God did not heal Sam the way they wanted Him to. However, even though Sam’s story did not end as his friends and family wanted, it did end as God desired. While his mom, dad, sisters, all his family and friends miss Sam, many believe that Sam is with Jesus – hanging out, having fun on 2 good legs, and waiting for us to join him. This may seem like foolishness, but God’s plans and our human plans are so very different. God is trustworthy all the time…despite the situation.

If you are struggling and need hope – turn to Jesus...The Christ. He will never turn you away. For more information on turning to Jesus for help, contact the Pastoral Staff at Westerville Christian Church at 614-891-6842 /

As it were

Artists bring their talent to Ohio’s ‘infant’ capital Perhaps because Columbus is the state capital, it should not be surprising that there would be a couple of artists practicing their trade in the early history of the town. Established as a created capital city in 1812, Columbus was somewhat isolated in its early years. The village was overshadowed by frontier Franklinton across the Scioto during the War of 1812. Columbus only had a few hundred residents when President James Monroe whipped through in 1817 and ED dubbed it an LENTZ “infant city.” When English immigrant William Bambrough arrived in town from England in 1819 at the age of 27, most of the streets were still simple dirt paths. The only substantial structures in town were the buildings on Statehouse Square and the rather formidable prison where the Cultural Arts Center is today. Still, Bambrough, an accomplished sketch artist, thought there might be a future for him in the new town. As things turned out, he was right — but just barely. A lover of nature, Bambrough bought a house lot “out in the country” near the corner of Long and High streets and, in due course, planted an elaborate flower garden around his cottage. A naturalist at heart, Bambrough made the acquaintance of John James Audubon and accompanied him on several field trips through the South between 1824 and 1832. Returning to Columbus, he lived modestly until his death in 1860. His most commonly observed work in Columbus was a full-length portrait of George Washington, which was placed in the Statehouse. By the time he died, Bambrough had seen the arrival of a canal and several railroads, and the growth of the town to a city of more than 18,000 people. He had also seen the emergence of several competitors. Some of the competition came from the new art of photography. Faster and simpler than portrait painting, the first daguerreotype studio was opened in Columbus in 1840, only a year after Louis Daguerre invented the process in France. By 1842, there were several “Daguerrean Artistes” operating in Columbus. But for many people, only a formal “sitting” for one’s portrait would do. To meet the need for such portraits, the formidable family of John Macey Walcutt rose to the challenge. Walcutt came to Columbus early in its history. A carpenter and cabinetmaker by trade, he bought a lot at the southwest corner of Town and High streets and opened a shop in his front room. Wandering across the river to Franklinton, Walcutt met and married Mariel Broderick, a daughter of one of the earliest settlers in the area. Over the next couple of decades, the Walcutts had no fewer than 17 children. Twelve of them lived to maturity and three of the sons of John and Mariel Walcutt would become wellknown American artists, even though none of them had much formal training until they were adults.

The statue of Dr. Samuel Smith at the corner of Broad and High streets by William Walcutt.

George Walcutt painted portraits and landscapes and assisted in his father’s chair business. He raised a company of soldiers to fight in the Mexican War. Noted for his historical knowledge, he once won a medal in a statewide history contest in Cincinnati. His brother, David Walcutt, was primarily a portrait painter, and many of his portraits of Ohio’s governors are still hanging in the Statehouse. David Walcutt later went into partnership with Cincinnati sculptor Thomas Jones for a time, and then went on to open a portrait studio in St. Louis. Probably the best-known of the Walcutt artists was the older brother of George and David. William Walcutt was born in Columbus in 1819. Specializing in portrait painting, he acquired a reputation that brought him work from eastern cities as well as the rest of the state of Ohio. In middle age, he traveled to Europe and studied with some of the best French painters of the mid-19th century. In time, he would become the first American to be awarded a medal by the French Academy. Returning to America, William Walcutt spent most of his later career as a sculptor. Some of his more memorable works included the Perry monument in Cleveland and the statue of Dr. Samuel Smith that stood for many years at the corner of Broad and High streets. The story of the travels of the statue of Dr. Smith probably deserves a story in its own right. Originally commissioned by his family, the statue extended a bit into the street. Eventually becoming a traffic hazard, the statue was moved several times, stolen at one time and recovered, and stands today on the OSU campus near the College of Medicine. As more artists came to Columbus, the Walcutt family competed by opening one of the first art galleries in the city on the site of their father’s carpentry shop. Branching out from there, the

family later expanded the gallery to include other exhibits and opened the city’s first and only Dime Museum. The museum included all sorts of examples of taxidermy, souvenirs and mementos from famous and infamous people, and paintings and sculpture from the prolific Walcutt family. It was apparently a wonder to behold. Unable to compete against the formidable Walcutts, John Henry Witt carved out a niche of his own. Born in Wayne County in 1840, Witt trained as an artist in Cincinnati and came to Columbus in 1862, during the American Civil War. After buying a home on Franklin Avenue near Washington Boulevard, he began to paint portraits of prominent military and political figures. Handsome and socially adept, Witt soon was painting governors and generals until he left Columbus in 1878 for New York and Washington. One of the people Witt left behind in Columbus was his pupil, Silas Martin. Born in Columbus in 1841, Martin grew up in Westerville and studied art with the wife of the president of Otterbein College. She later would become a pupil of his. Martin came to Columbus, studied with Witt and turned to portrait painting. He painted a number of prominent people, including Gov. William McKinley. In his later career, he turned his attention to landscapes. In 1889, Silas Martin became head of the art department at Ohio State University, serving until his death in 1906. By that time, Columbus boasted well-established art schools, a Gallery of Fine Arts and a whole new generation of Columbus artists. Many of them, like George Bellows and Alice Schille, would set new standards for a new century. But that is another story for another day. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Do you suffer from

Library focuses on fall With all the heat and humidity these last few weeks, it’s hard to believe that fall is just around the corner. Summer’s end means lots of things, good and bad, to everyone. Kids may miss their outdoor pooltime, but there’s nothing like playing in a pile of newly raked leaves. Teens may dread the first few days of school, but at the end of the week there’s always the anticipation of a Friday night football game. For adults, nothing says summer like a barbecue, but cider or s’mores in front of a roaring fire is OK, too. At Worthington Libraries, we’re excited about fall. With just a sampling of the programs we’ve scheduled listed below, you’ll see why. Tales from the Gridiron: A Look at OSU Football History, Sept. 8 Jack Park, Ohio State football historian, radio commentator and analyst, will discuss the program’s storied history and milestone events that have made it what it is today. Author of “The Official Ohio State Football Encyclopedia” and “The Ohio State University Football Vault: the History of the Buckeyes,” Park will sell and sign copies of his books at the Sept. 8 event that will start at 7 p.m. at Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Road. Diana Britt Franklin author visit, Sept. 13 Also at Northwest Library, Diana Britt Franklin will discuss her newest work of Ohio-based true crime, “Gold Medal Killer,” which tells the story of Dr. James Howard Snook, an Ohio State University professor who, in 1929, murdered his 24-year-

HILLARY KLINE old coed mistress. As Britt Franklin will explain at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13, Snook, a two-time Olympic gold medalist with a wife and young daughter, met Theora Hix when she was 21 and working as a stenographer for OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Zombie Invasion, Oct. 14 Oct. 14 will be Z-Day at Northwest Library. Part of TGIF, a library series offering unique afterhours programs for teens, Zombie Invasion will feature gruesome games, like Pin the Pancreas on the Zombie, and a monstrous makeup demonstration. Those attending can come in costume, and should be prepared to shake a leg during an outrageous dance contest. The event starts at 7 p.m. Family Reading Festival featuring Will Hillenbrand, Nov. 13 Old Worthington Library will again host this year’s festival (formerly the Read to Your Baby Festival), which focuses on early childhood literacy and fostering early reading skills at home. During a 3 p.m. presentation, award-winning children’s book author and illustrator Will Hillenbrand will focus on the process of creating a book, from journal entries to final artwork. A book-signing will follow, with proceeds benefiting the Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries.

Wolford enjoys fun, games overseas By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Margaret Wolford almost walked away from what she called “a life-changing opportunity.” A 2009 Worthington Kilbourne High School graduate and junior on the Fresno State University women’s lacrosse team, she helped lead USA Athletes International to a second-place finish in the Berlin Open Lacrosse Tournament held June 17-19 in Germany. The U.S. team lost to Global Players, a team comprised of Europeans and Americans, 11-10 in the final. “I didn’t know any other girls who were going on the trip and I had never traveled overseas before,” said Wolford, who was talked into playing for the U.S. team by her aunt. “I was really nervous how things were Margaret Wolford (center) poses with USA Athletes International going to go. Now I am really glad I went. I coaches Amy Archambault (left) and Kathryn Durki. The squad met some really amazing girls and really neat finished second at the Berlin Open Lacrosse Tournament. coaches.”

According to Wolford, the U.S. team rarely was challenged until the final. Global Players, however, was an experienced team featuring several players who had played Division I college lacrosse. “Overall, the U.S. is still ahead (of Europe) in lacrosse,” Wolford said. “We played some decent teams, but we also played some teams that were just awful. We played the German (Under)-19 national team and beat them by a pretty good margin. There was some good competition, but it was more of a fun tournament.” The trip wasn’t solely about lacrosse, however. After the tournament, Wolford’s team got to do some sightseeing around Berlin and visited Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic. Among the high points for Wolford were visiting the Berlin Wall Memorial, the Prague Castle, Charles Bridge in Prague and the Terezin Memorial in the Czech Republic. “We got immersed in a different culture,” Wolford said. “It opened your eyes to the

rest of the world. You realized that the rest of the world is not like the United States. It was a real valuable experience, and I am so glad I went on that trip.” Wolford said the trip also helped her rediscover her love for the game. Kilbourne’s all-time leader in goals and assists, she totaled 255 points in her fouryear prep career as the Wolves had a 40-31 record over that span. As a senior, she had 44 goals and 27 assists. “During her years at Kilbourne, Margaret was a member of teams that raised the bar for what was expected of our lacrosse team,” Kilbourne coach Doug Troutner said. “Margaret’s impact on the girls lacrosse program has continued beyond her graduation. Current members of the team see her playing at the Division I level and realize that it could happen to them as well.” Playing at the college level with a young program has been an adjustment for Wolford.

Stier eager to get started By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Being part of an opportunity that is at its starting point is nothing out of the ordinary for Brian Stier. He has been a participant in three church plants, including the current one he’s involved in with LifePoint Church in Lewis Center. Stier will be part of something new once again in a few months when he becomes the first coach of the Worthington Christian High School football program, which is expected to have a varsity team by 2014. About to begin his third season as coach of the Columbus Crusaders club football team, he will take over the Warriors’ program after the 2011 football season. “I know a lot of the families at Worthington Christian and have built relationships with a lot of the families, so I already have a connection and love of the school,” Stier said. “The second piece of it stems from my passion and involvement in church plants. I see Worthington Christian as a kind of church plant ministry opportunity. It’ll be a chance to reach out to the kids and combine that with teaching them the bible.” Worthington Christian is expected to field a middle school team in 2012, with a junior varsity team expected to be in place in 2013 and varsity the following year. Based on the OHSAA’s enrollment figures for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years, Worthington Christian has 126 boys, which would place it in Division V. Stier, who played in high school at Wheaton (Ill.) North and collegiately at Bowling Green, has been part of the Crusaders’program for 11 seasons. The Crusaders went 6-4 during his first season as coach in 2009 and 8-2 last fall. The Crusaders had 40 players when Stier first became involved with the program in 2001 but are expecting to have 70 players this fall. Because of an influx of homeschooled and charter school athletes, the Crusaders likely will have only about 10 players from Worthington Christian on their roster this fall. In past years, the percentage of Worthington Christian athletes playing for the Crusaders was significantly higher, Stier said. “(The Crusaders’ program) is a place I’ve coached for the last 10 years, so it’s a home I’ll miss,” Stier said. “I wasn’t looking to leave, but when you feel God calling you to venture into something new, you have to do it. The (Crusaders are) so much bigger than one person.”

New Thomas girls tennis coach Jill Fergus talks with members of the team during practice Aug. 4. Fergus replaces Tyler Stephen.

Girls Tennis

Fergus excited to take over Cards By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Jill Fergus realizes how important the high school years are in the development of girls and hopes to be a mentor to the members of the Thomas Worthington High School girls tennis team. Fergus recently was named Cardinals coach. She replaces Tyler Stephen, who resigned to become the girls coach at Dublin Jerome. Stephen compiled an 1817 record in two seasons with the Cardinals. “I’m really excited,” said Fergus, who began practice with the Cardinals on Aug.

1. “This is an age group I really like to work with.” A realtor with Re/MAX Impact, Fergus played tennis at Ohio University from 1973-76. Although this is her first time coaching at the high school level, athletics director Dan Girard was impressed with her knowledge of the game. “She has a really good sense of the tactical side of tennis as well as being very kid-centered,” Girard said. “She is geared for that age group.” Fergus has experience working with teenage girls. In addition to raising a daughter, Shannon, a 2005 Thomas Worthington graduate, she is chairwoman of Fairy

Goodmothers, a nonprofit organization that collects and distributes prom dresses to high school girls whose financial situations would otherwise prevent them from attending the prom. “High school girls are very impressionable,” Fergus said. “It’s a very important time to develop self-esteem and one way to do that is through sports. I’m very pleased to be a part of that.” Fergus said her father, John Semon, who was a physical education professor at West Virginia University, served as her mentor. Semon died in 1993. “My father brought me up to love sports and was always in my corner,” she said.

“He was encouraging me to get involved at the high school and college level.” Fergus said she wants to pass on what she learned from her father to her players. “I am focusing on making sure every girl has the confidence to play to the best of their own ability,” she said. “I want (them) to be very confident no matter what their skill level. “Tennis is one of the unique sports where you can play regardless of how old you are. You don’t need a lot of equipment to do it. You need shoes, a racket See FERGUS, page B2

Field Hockey

Chronic knee injuries force Brinkman to end career By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

During her career at North Carolina, Kelsey Brinkman was on Tar Heels teams that won a national title in 2009 and were runners-up last fall.

This fall was supposed to be a big field hockey season for Kelsey Brinkman, a 2008 Thomas Worthington High School graduate and University of North Carolina senior. For three years, Brinkman had been trying to make an impact with the Tar Heels, who won the national championship in 2009 and were runners-up last fall. But a chronic knee ailment has cut short her college career. “It wasn’t one quick thing. It just slowly and gradually slipped away,” Brinkman said. “I wanted to become a starter and do all that, but I never

got the chance. It ended before I could get there.” Since elementary school, Brinkman had struggled with a left kneecap that would rub against her femur. She had surgery in sixth grade after a part of her kneecap chipped off and became lodged between the kneecap and femur. “My kneecap is misaligned,” Brinkman said. “When I run, instead of aligning on a groove, it goes off to the side and goes over my bone.” After undergoing a second knee surgery during her sophomore year of high school, Brinkman worked her way back and was a field hockey All-American as a senior. A team captain, she helped lead the Cardi-

nals to their first state championship since 1988 by defeating Watterson 3-0 in the 2007 final. She also was a captain on the lacrosse team, earning an honorable mention All-American honor in 2008 and academic All-American honors in 2007 and 2008. At North Carolina, the midfielder redshirted her freshman year as the Tar Heels finished 14-6 and lost to Michigan State in the first round of the NCAA tournament. In 2009, Brinkman played in 11 games as North Carolina finished 20-2 and captured its seventh national title. The Tar Heels defeated See BRINKMAN, page B2

Strayer persevered through OSU career By SCOTT GERFEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

In 2006, three seniors on the Worthington Kilbourne High School baseball team caught the attention of then-Ohio State coach Bob Todd, who had to drive just a few blocks from his home in Worthington to recruit them. From day one, Ryan Dew became a staple in the Buckeyes’ lineup before graduating in 2010 with teammate Cory Kovanda. Both contributed to a Big Ten tournament championship as freshmen and a regular-season conference title in 2009. After being redshirted as a freshman, Jared Strayer knew he would have to wait to make an impact. “It was a weird time for me,” he said. “You come from being the go-to guy in high school and then you’re surrounded by 15 other pitchers who were No. 1 at their schools. I knew at the collegiate level the only way to be successful was to buy into what they were telling you.” The wait was worth it, though,

as Strayer ended his career at Ohio State last May as one of the go-to guys in the bullpen. In his final season with the Buckeyes, the right-hander had a 3.41 ERA and two saves in 27 appearances and 19 strikeouts in 29 innings. It was a strong finish to his career, especially given the adversity that he had to overcome, including midseason knee surgery in 2010 and a broken arm early into this year. “There was never a point in time when I thought about giving it up,” Strayer said. “Baseball at Ohio State was the reason I graduated. It kept me focused because I knew I had to do well in the classroom if I wanted to play.” Strayer was a star at Kilbourne, compiling four program pitching records: career wins (21), career strikeouts (162), victories in a season (8) and strikeouts in a season (63). His senior season with the Wolves, he was 7-0 with three saves, a 2.32 ERA and 63 strikeouts. He also had a .428 batting

he knew it would take more than that to be successful at the Division I college level. “I certainly wasn’t given the easy way to success when I came to Ohio State,” he said. “I think coach Todd developed a sense of pride in my work ethic. It was tough coming out of high school, but I knew I needed to work even harder to get better.” It was a slow climb. Strayer pitched only 5 2/3 innings as a redshirt freshman in 2008 in five relief appearances, recording six strikeouts. His role expanded, however, as he tied for third on the team with 20 appearances in 2009. He finished the 2010 season with a 2-2 record and 4.95 ERA. But eight games into that season, he had an 8.75 ERA and pain in his knee that would require arthroscopic surgery. “By my fifth year, I’d say I figured it out,” Strayer said. “I As a senior, Jared Strayer appeared in 27 games as a reliever, think I pitched as good as I with two saves and a 3.41 ERA. could’ve pitched and I think I have my brother to thank for average with 30 RBI. hitter.

UNC coach Karen Shelton offered her a chance to be a team manager, but Brinkman said it was best for her to get away from the sport. She plans to study abroad in Florence, Italy. “I knew in the fall it was going to be rough to be around the team,” Brinkman said. “Studying in Florence is going to take away some of the pain of not being able to play.”

Fresno State, now entering its fourth year as a varsity program, was 0-42 in its first three seasons, including 0-14 this past spring.

him.” His younger brother, Cody, who helped Kilbourne reach a district final this past season for the first time since 2006, will pitch for Shawnee State University next spring. Jared watched Cody baffle hitters with a variety of arm angles and speeds. Jared also developed a successful sidearm delivery. Among the highlights of Jared’s senior season was striking out the side in the seventh inning against Illinois in the Big Ten tournament on May 26 at Huntington Park. The Buckeyes lost 5-4 and ended their season the next day with a 9-4 loss to Minnesota. The loss to Minnesota marked the end of his playing career. Jared, who earned a degree in human ecology, has come to the realization that he won’t be going on to play at the professional level. “I’ve accepted it and it’s been tough, but there’s nothing to be sad about,” he said.

Race for postseason begins opening week By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek

Hilliard Davidson’s Bo Delande looks to elude a Mentor defender during the Wildcats’ 36-35 double-overtime victory in the Division I state championship game on Dec. 2, 2006, at Fawcett Stadium in Canton. Delande scored all five touchdowns for the Wildcats and ran for the decisive twopoint conversion.

Top Individual Performances: No. 1

Delande delivered with state title for Davidson By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Former Hilliard Davidson High School football standout Bo Delande fondly recalls highstepping into the end zone with the winning two-point conversion in the 2006 Division I state championship game. The 6-foot, 185-pound running back’s score lifted Davidson to a 36-35 double-overtime win over Mentor on Dec. 2, 2006, at Fawcett Stadium in Canton. It was the Wildcats’ first state championship and the first Division I state final decided in overtime. Delande finished the game with five touchdowns and 236 yards rushing on 47 carries. His five touchdowns set a state tournament record. “I think about the game all the time,” Delande said. “It’s something me and my buddies still talk about. I’ll remember that forever — not only for my personal performance but also the team as a whole. I’ll always remember that game.” Delande, a 2007 Davidson graduate, keeps many mementos of that special season at his parents’ home in Hilliard, including his state championship ring. Although he played a key role in the win, he realizes the victory was a team effort. “I credit the offensive line,” Delande said. “Also, we had Connor Dietz at quarterback. We had Clay Trubiano (at slotback). Our defense was pretty tough, too. They helped out a lot. We had a talented team that year.” With Davidson trailing 3528 in the second overtime, Delande took the handoff from Dietz on first down at the Mentor 10-yard line and fumbled at the 6. Mentor’s Danny Kelley appeared to recover the ball at the 1, but the ball squirted loose and Davidson lineman Mike Saul recovered it at the 3. Delande scored on the next play, making it 35-34. Then, during a pair of timeouts by the Wildcats, kicker Colby Catlett ran on and then off the field. Catlett actually was lined up for the extra-point attempt that coach Brian White later admitted would have been a fake before the second timeout was called. After the second timeout, White opted to put his offense on the field and give the ball to Delande. “None of us coaches had any idea during the course of the game that Bo had scored one, two, three, four or five touchdowns,” White said. “It’s not like we purposely were trying to get him to score touchdowns. We were running our offense. The thing that gets lost a little bit — and I believe Bo would be the first to admit this — is the offensive line we had that year was pretty special.” A preferred walk-on at Ohio State in 2007 who is preparing for his senior season with the Buckeyes, Delande finished the 2006 season with a program-

Counting down to No. 1 ThisWeek Community Newspapers has been around for 22 years. That timeframe was used as the basis to compile a top-10 list of the top individual performances we’ve covered. Along with the experienced sports staff at ThisWeek and Steve Blackledge, high school reporter at The Columbus Dispatch, we arrived at a top-10 list. Below are Nos. 2-10. Let us know your thoughts at

NOS. 2-10: 10. MAURICE HALL, Brookhaven football (Oct. 27, 2000) — During a season in which he rushed for 3,057 yards to rank fifth on Ohio’s all-time list, Hall’s most memorable individual performance came during the final week of the regular season. The Bearcats beat Briggs 75-16 as Hall rushed for 411 yards and eight touchdowns on 19 carries. 9. LATOYA TURNER, Pickerington girls basketball (March 19, 1999) — The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Tigers advance to the Division I state final with her 29-point performance in a 51-35 win over Wadsworth. The Ohio State recruit made 12 of 14 shots from the floor and was 5-for-6 from the free-throw line while adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists. 8. DARCY FISHBACK, Upper Arling-ton girls swimming (Feb. 27-28, 2009) — During preliminaries Feb. 27, Fishback broke the state record in the 100-yard butterfly when she finished in 53.38 seconds. She won her fourth state title in the event the next day in 54.17 seconds. Fishback also swam on two state-record relays: the 200 medley (1:43.59) and the 200 freestyle (1:34.24). 7. CHARLES JOHNSON, Watkins Memorial boys basketball (Feb. 24, 1995) — There have been few more surprising performances than what this 5-8 senior guard accomplished in leading the Warriors to a 93-87 overtime upset of second-seeded and state-ranked London in the second round of the Division II district tournament. Watkins Memorial was just 1-19 entering the matchup but got 57 points from Johnson, who made 19 of 34 from floor, including eight 3-pointers, and was 11-for-15 from the freethrow line. He added eight rebounds, six steals and five assists. 6. KHALILAH CARPENTER, Brookhaven girls track and field (June 2-3, 2000) — At the 2000 Division I state meet, the junior broke the meet and state records in the 100 meters with

record 2,208 yards rushing and 23 touchdowns on 398 carries. He was named first-team allOCC-Buckeye Division and alldistrict and special mention allstate. “Bo has been a huge part of our offense this year,” White said during the 2006 season. “He isn’t necessarily the fastest kid on the field. He normally isn’t the biggest kid, isn’t the strongest kid, but I find it hard to believe there’s too many kids tougher than him that are on the field when we’re playing. “He never falls backward, he’s always falling forward. He gets positive yardage.” Davidson rushed for 345 yards on 72 carries against Mentor, outmatching the Cardinals’ no-huddle offense that passed for 327 yards. “That had to be the most ridiculous ending to a game, let alone a season, that I can remember,” said Dietz, who is entering his senior year at the U.S. Air Force Academy. “Everything fell into place.” “It was a pretty special night for everybody in Hilliard,”

a time of 11.59 seconds on June 2. The next day, she won the 100 in 11.71 and the 200 title in 23.69, a time that lowered the state mark she already held. 5. JEFF BACKES, Upper Arlington football (Dec. 2, 2000) — In leading the Golden Bears to the Division I state title, the 5-9, 180-pound senior turned in a performance worthy of the Ohio Mr. Football award that he had received days earlier. Backes rushed for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries and preserved a 159 victory over Solon at Fawcett Stadium in Canton with an interception with less than a minute remaining. 4. COURTNEY SMITH, Hilliard Davidson softball (May 17 and 19, 2006) — Smith brought to a close what remains the longest OHSAA softball tournament game, hitting a grand slam in the bottom of the 22nd inning for a 4-1 victory over Olentangy Liberty and a Division I district championship for the Wildcats. It was Smith’s first career home run. She also stood out in the circle, striking out 29 while pitching a complete game. She didn’t allow a run until the top of the 22nd. 3. GREG AVERY, Newark boys basketball (March 15, 2008) — Avery led the Wildcats to a 65-52 victory over Lakewood St. Edward in the Division I state championship game. The 6-3 senior forward tied his career high of 33 points on 14 of 18 shooting and added 11 rebounds, three assists and four steals as the Wildcats captured their first state title since 1943. Avery made third-team all-state his senior season as he averaged 18.9 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists. He became the sixth player in program history to score more than 1,000 points, finishing with 1,131 career points. 2. RYAN WILSON, Westerville North boys track and field (June 5-6, 1998) — Wilson qualified for the Division I state meet in four events all four years of his prep career. Perhaps his greatest feat at state occurred in 1998, as he lived up to his own high expectations in many aspects, winning the long jump (23 feet, 1 inch) on the first day of competition and coming back on day two with titles in the 110meter hurdles (13.95 seconds) and 300 hurdles (37.1). He also placed seventh in the 200. The three titles he won that weekend gave North 30 points and a co-championship in Division I with Brunswick. In 1999, he defended his titles in the 110 hurdles (13.7) and 300 hurdles (36.46).

White said. “It was one of those things that you never expect to happen and when it happens I don’t know if you really know how to react to it. Everybody tells you enjoy the moment, but at that time you’re so concentrated on what you’re trying to accomplish, I don’t know that you can really enjoy it. We’ve certainly looked back upon it with some fond memories since then.” Delande, who had rushed for 1,304 and nine touchdowns as a junior at Davidson, is the oldest of three brothers who have excelled athletically for the Wildcats. Spencer Delande was a key member of the football team when it won the 2009 state championship by defeating Cleveland Glenville 16-15 in the Division I final. Chase Delande won the Division I state wrestling title at 145 pounds last March as a junior and also is a member of the football team.

A little more than two weeks remain before the first official snaps are taken on central Ohio high school football fields. For traditional playoff contenders, the first regular-season game begins a journey that includes the expectation that it might take a dozen games or more before true satisfaction comes. The teams in the middle, meanwhile, enter the season with a different kind of anxiousness. One team from Division I, Region 3 — Lancaster — went 7-3 and failed to make the playoffs last year. There were seven other teams in the region that went 5-5 or 6-4 and had their seasons end before the postseason. For programs such as Gahanna and Upper Arlington where long playoff runs have come in the recent past, the need to move back into the postseason race is one that can be a consuming desire. Gahanna has missed the playoffs the past three seasons after qualifying for the postseason five of the previous seven seasons. Upper Arlington has missed the postseason the past two years after making the playoffs nine of the previous 12 years. The Golden Bears won the Division I state title in 2000. “Obviously, winning football teams are expected at Gahanna Lincoln,” Lions coach John Snoad said. “We’ve been a .500 team, and that’s not acceptable in our community. They understand there’s a great tradition with great playoff teams. Last year, we were literally three points away from being 7-3 and the eighth seed. “A good team has good discipline. The key here is if we take care of business in key plays. Those are the things that separate the fine line between being 5-5 and being 7-3 or 8-2. We have some tremendous talent, and now we have to work very hard to get

strong in the weight room and get out and be disciplined.” Others in Region 3 left on the outside a year ago when each went 6-4 were Pickerington North, Groveport, Olentangy Liberty and Mount Vernon. One school in particular that hopes failing to make the postseason won’t become a habit is Liberty, which had made six consecutive postseason appearances before last season. Olentangy, Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Olentangy Orange and Watkins Memorial all were 6-4 but were left on the outside of the Division II, Region 7 playoffs a year ago. Among the others hoping to be breakout teams this year are Granville and Licking Heights, both of which went 7-3 last year but failed to make the playoffs. •NEW LEADERS — There were several coaching changes among central Ohio’s programs during the offseason, and three of them have new coaches named White. Buddy White has taken over Reynoldsburg’s program after previously serving as an assistant with the Raiders. Last year, he was an assistant at Hartley, which won the Division IV state championship. Trevor White is Brookhaven’s new coach. He is a former Bearcats and Marion-Franklin assistant who will try to return Brookhaven to its past success after a 5-5 season last fall. The other new “White” is Westland’s Steve White, who is a former Grove City assistant. Other new coaches in central Ohio include Lewis Carter at Columbus East, Shawn Hinkle at Canal Winchester, Mike LoParo at Hilliard Bradley, Tom Roberts at Northridge and Zebb Schroeder at Delaware. Jim Collis will be coaching Columbus Academy after coach Mark Barren died June 9 following a heart attack. Collis coached the Vikings from 1996-2006, and

they won the Division V state title in 2003. •SWITCHING DIVISIONS — Several central Ohio teams have changed divisions for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Moving from Division II to Division I are Bradley, Scioto, Jerome, Olentangy, Orange and St. Charles. Columbus West, Franklin Heights, Mount Vernon, Northland and Worthington Kilbourne dropped to Division II. Licking Heights moved from Division III to Division II, while Centennial and Independence both dropped from Division II to Division III. Fairfield Union and Jonathan Alder moved up from Division IV to Division III, Ready and Northridge moved up to Division IV from Division V and Madison Plains switches from Division IV to Division V. Africentric dropped from Division V to Division VI. •ALREADY VERBALLY COMMITTED — The first member of the 2012 recruiting class from central Ohio to verbally commit to a Division I college was Olentangy linebacker Joshua Perry with Ohio State. Since Perry made his commitment in June 2010, the Buckeyes have added DeSales running back Warren Ball, Pickerington Central offensive lineman Jacoby Boren, Upper Arlington wide receiver Frank Epitropolous, Lancaster linebacker Luke Roberts and Pickerington North offensive lineman Pat Elflein from central Ohio. Other area players who have made a commitment include Olentangy offensive lineman Kenton Playko (Northwestern), Jerome wide receiver Cameron Wilson (Iowa), Pickerington Central linebacker Jake Kincaid (Kent State), Pickerington Central defensive back Jason O’Bryan (Kent State), Upper Arlington offensive lineman James Henry (Toledo), Marysville tight end Craig Runyan (Toledo) and Lancaster defensive lineman Aaron Woosley (Ball State).

Have You Heard? by Greg VanHorssen A LOSING PROPOSITION FOR MEN New research showing that men taking the erectile-dysfunction (ED) drug sildenafil (Viagra) and similar drugs are at increased risk for hearing loss bolsters previous anecdotal accounts and laboratory work that arrives at a similar conclusion. While the new study does rely on self-reported hearing loss among men taking sildenafil, it is certainly worth noting that the new study reveals that taking ED drugs may double a man’s risk of developing hearing loss. The study also went on to show that, while other studies focused on sudden hearing loss, the hearing loss noted among the Viagra users may be more incremental in nature. Thus, some users of ED drugs may not notice any hearing loss associated with the medications right away. If you’re taking a medication for erectile dysfunction and have sudden loss of hearing or vision, seek medical help right away. If you or a family member are not hearing as well as you could, please call us today at 614-654-4309 to schedule a complementary hearing & speech evaluation.

Chile Verde Café serves familiar fare with a special twist There’s a combo platter of reasons why El Cheapo, order-bynumbers, Mexican-ish restaurants are plentiful and popular in Columbus. Let’s face it: Dining at these generally fun margarita-hustling and “enchirito”-slinging casas is like party-crashing your way into an instant fiesta. Didn’t eat much lunch today? Then dig into free chips and salsa; they’ll practically arrive at your table simultaneously with you. Boss acting like a jackwagon again? Make that a grande margarita. Need a burrito-load of feelgood food? Cue the zesty meat, melting cheese and gooey beans. Yep, this crowd-pleasing formula works — thus all the busy and successful El Restaurante clones. Too bad there aren’t more places like Chile Verde instead. Semi-recently (and significantly) enlarged and packing in loyal reg-

MENU by G. A. BENTON ulars for around two decades, the much-beloved Chile Verde fulfills all those above obligations while separating itself from the peso-a-dozen competition. First of all, rather than risibly making bogus claims of Mexican authenticity, Chile Verde wears its gringo-ness on its salsa-splattered sleeves. See, this non-chain joint goes its own southwestern way, whipping up familiar yet distinct (and quite spicy) food it proudly refers to as “the cuisine of New Mexico.” So expect the usual taco, enchilada and chile relleno-type fare to be served with a special twist, and expect a few unexpected dishes, too. Yeah, everything’s a little better — and/or a bit different — at

ity) in the cheaply priced ($5.50) House version. For something tarter and smarter, try the Skinny Margarita ($9). Chile Verde’s cheery and charming dining rooms also clue you in to its sunny and noncookie-cutter “Land of Enchantment” personality. Above a handsome terra cotta tile floor, metallic desert By Will Shilling/ThisWeek critters scale the walls; turquoise Beef enchiladas at Chile Verde in Dublin. tassels dangle from lamps; and Chile Verde. This includes the margaritas. For instance, you can currently, a great little local art taste actual fresh limejuice (a rar- exhibit of brashly painted Mexi-

Food-wise, no visit to Chile Verde is complete for me without a big bowl of the terrific Green Chile Stew ($5.50). Topped with cheese and tasting tangy, smoky and fiercely spicy, it’s filled with chunks of beef, potatoes, beans and carrots and is a must. Also quite spicy but much lighter was an inspired cucumber Gazpacho ($5). A recurring special, it’s cumin-kissed, pulpy, aggressively tart and thoroughly refreshing. Another frequent feature is the very fine fish taco. Generous hunks of mahi mahi were not battered and deep-fried but rubbed with a jerk-like spice mix and skillet-seared for a much lighter preparation. Enchiladas take on extra interest when wrapped in organic blue

tortillas (two Blue Corn Enchiladas with two sides are $12). Here, you can make neat sauceand-meat combinations like shredded beef with the killer chile verde or mushroom merlot sauces; chunky chicken with a zingy chile rojo (spicy roasted red chiles enriched with chicken stock) or salsalike ranchero sauces. Ordering the Combo Plato dinner affords tons of mix-and-match options (three mains, two sides for $13). You could choose a very good chile relleno properly leavened with egg whites to go with a masa-intense tamale and a meaty fajita taco. As for sides, I’d avoid the boring rice and go with the hearty, dip-like black beans and unusual, dense skin-on smashed potatoes with a hint of cinnamon.

Policy banning children uinder 6 not embraced locally A Pittsburgh-area restaurateur’s decision to ban children younger than 6 has drawn varied reactions from local restaurateurs and diners. Mike Vuick instituted the mandate last month at his restaurant, McDains Restaurant & Golf Center in suburban Monroeville, saying it was not a place for young kids. He said he was also tired of

fighting with parents who couldn’t conage starting healthy trol their young ones. eating habits,” he said. But many central Ohio restaurant own“A lot of parents, they ers don’t seem likely to embrace that edict don’t want kids eating any time soon. ketchup and fries. David Mor, owner of Olive Tree Those young working couples, where can Mediterranean Café in Hilliard, said chil- they go?” dren come with the territory. Carla Piolata said very few families “That’s my biggest joy — kids at this bring young children to her restaurant, Cibo, an upscale Italian restaurant in Upper Arlington. “But the ones we get, they are treated very well,” she said. Still, both restaurateurs acknowledge that unruly behavior will not be tolerated. “We expect the parents to control their kids,” Mor said. “My concern is it’s not only unfair to the other diners but it’s a liability issue.” Even the tony Refectory on the Northwest Side has experienced its occasional brush with out-of-control children, owner Kamal Boulos said. That presents a dicey situation for restaurant managers. “If the parents aren’t sensitive to the actions of their children, there’s really no easy way or gracious way you can help them to see that without offending them,” he said. Reached last week by phone, Vuick

said the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Lately, emails have been 20-1 in favor of the policy, he said. Patrons have been relaying their own stories about unruly conduct by children and lack of discipline from parents. “There’s a lot of frustration and disgust out there toward this kind of behavior,” he said. He said he didn’t do it for the publicity. But patrons have come from as far as Columbus and Cleveland to show their support. “I thought this would pass,” he said. “I was wrong.” Since the policy was instituted July 16, receipts are up 20 percent, despite threats of boycotts, he said. So far, nobody has tried to challenge the policy in person, so he hasn’t had to turn anybody away. Local diner Geoffrey Matwich, who has a 2-year-old, said certain dining experiences are good for both parents and children, but not all venues are appropriate. “As a parent who still enjoys going out to nice restaurant every once in awhile without my child, I find it not in the best interest of the child to put them in an environment where you expect them to sit and be quiet for long periods of time,” he

said. “You wouldn’t take your child to the art gallery or a symphony concert. Why would you take them to a high-end restaurant setting?” Sue Bellan, another local diner who doesn’t have children, said she understands the struggle with the issue. “I can certainly appreciate some of the higher-end restaurants having a policy of that nature so that they can offer a certain atmosphere in their restaurants, as that is what the majority of their clientele are paying for,” Bellan said. “However, on the flip side, if you are going to a mid-scale or family restaurant, you should expect that there will be families there with young children and not be upset with them acting up a bit, as children do.” David Kincheloe, a restaurant consultant in Golden, Colo., said bans on some types of behavior — certain attire, cell phones and smoking, to name a few —already exist in some restaurants. He said restaurants have to make a calculated decision whether the policy will be acceptable by the largest percentage of customers. “I think it potentially is a short-term type of thing,” he said. “Because what will happen then is someone will say, ‘Bring your kids. They’re all welcome.’”

Experience the Excellence and Passion! Since 2000, over 6,000 students have taken dance classes at NorthPointe Dance Academy. As a parent, we realize you have a choice between several different studios. All studios are not the same... We are the dance studio that cares about our community. NorthPointe enjoys performing for local charities and supporting our local PTO’s. We volunteer and teach each year at Olentangy Schools’ Enrichment Days, supplementing our children’s education with dance. As we celebrate our twelth anniversary, we invite you to compare all of our features and options to see why our studio has been chosen as one of the Top 50 studios in the country by Dance Spirit Magazine and the Federation of Dance Competitions (FDC)! NorthPointe dancers just participated in the first annual Dance Awards held at the Beacon Theatre in New York (home of the 2011 Tony Awards). NorthPointe students were also selected to dance at the World Dance Championship in Texas (an invitation only competition).

Qualified, Caring Instructors NorthPointe Dance Academy teachers have a strong commitment to teaching excellence. Offering many years of dance experience, each staff member demonstrates passion and dedication to dance in their area of expertise. They are chosen not only for their qualifications, but for their ability to love, nurture, and inspire their students.

Convenience and Choice Students and parents can choose from a wide range of dance programs. Many are offered at the same time making scheduling easier. We are conveniently located making us easy to get to from many commumities.

Class Size Our smaller class size ensures that each child will receive personalized attention, learn more, and have more fun. With younger students it is easier to maintain control of the class and make sure each student understands the concepts and instructions. NorthPointe’s commitment is to the proper and age-appropriate training of each dancer.

New Facility Our new 12,000 sq. ft. facility has six dance studios featuring full-length mirrors, ballet barres, variable speed CD players, and pro-sound systems. Our marley floor allows dancers to slide with control but not slippery. All studios have floating floors with over 700 high-foam blocks under the service. Our special floors help reduce the risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired.

Customer Service Knowledgeable, helpful desk staff are available to assist students during class time. We strive to provide outstanding service and take care of all the details so attending lessons are hassle free and enjoyable.

“NorthPointe has a sense of community, family, and relationships that make it a special place to dance. Not only do we have some of the best, current, and caring dance teachers in the area, but we have some of the best support from families! Dance has been a great way for our daughters to express themselves with the joy of music and art.” -The Playko Family “NorthPointe Dance Academy is dance, fun, and friends.” -Arrhianna and Alyse Playko “We love the experienced teachers at NorthPointe who nurture the love of dance with warmth & fun for our daughters.” -Martha Miller The staff at NorthPointe is first class! They are friendly and caring, yet strict in the discipline of dance. They have taught my daughters poise and self-confidence and they love attending the classes. -Suzanne Polk “Dancing at NorthPointe has given me the chance to express my feelings in a creative and fun way. Best of all, NorthPointe has allowed me to find friends that will last a lifetime.” -Abby Brown Our daughter Olivia has danced at NDA since 2003. Watching her transform from a 5 year old little girl into a beautiful and graceful dancer has been an amazing journey! -Mark & Julie Gutentag
