Support staff to forgo wage freeze By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Members of the Worthington Education Support Professionals (WESP) and exempt classified staff have ratified a new three-year contract, agreeing to forgo pay raises for the first six months of 2012 and the entire 2012-13 school year. The Worthington Board of Education on June 27 unanimously approved the contract. The agreement covers the district’s

450 secretaries, food-service workers, bus drivers and other classified staff members. Superintendent Melissa Conrath called the agreement “very fair to taxpayers.” “Like the WEA (Worthington Education Association), it is an unprecedented settlement,” Conrath said. “The district staff understands the challenge the community faces.” Last month, the teachers union and board agreed to a similar contract. “We’re all in this together,” Conrath

said. “All of our employees contribute to the success of our students.” She said the recent negotiations were “very cooperative, and I feel good about the process.” WESP president Pam Sturiano told the board that the district’s employees did it for the students they serve. “We come to work every day because we love working with the kids,” she said. In an interview following the meeting, she said union members took a realistic approach to negotiations.

“I feel good,” she said. “We all know what’s going on in the world. My neighbors don’t have jobs or their jobs are in danger.” Sturiano said 396 of the 450 classified employees are union members, and the vote to ratify the contract was an overwhelming 244-14. More than 150 members didn’t vote. Board member David Bressman credited the classified employees for making “a huge sacrifice.” “I worry about support staff and their

ability to sustain this contract,” he said, citing concerns over the escalating cost of health insurance. Board president Marc Schare said he thought two areas deserved a closer look. He said the agreement breaks faith with an audit done last year, identifying areas where classified workers were underpaid and overpaid. He also expressed concerns that the health-care cap still requires a 90-percent pickup by the board. Schare See CONTRACTS, page A2

Family festival, fireworks featured for Fourth of July By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Alaina Kidder, 5, squints as she is sprayed at the new splash pad at Worthington Pools. The splash pad is a new addition to the pool this year and has been a big hit.

‘Lagoon’ a hit with area youth By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

When his small body activated the sensors, all of the sprays and fountains opened up, momentarily startling 20-month-old Emmitt Bradley. That moment ended quickly, as the curious toddler and his 4-year-old twin siblings ran through the splash pad, experimenting with all of the toys and gadgets.

The splash pad, officially called the Lagoon, is the newest addition to the Worthington Pools. Located on the southeast corner of the swim complex, it features sprays, fountains, buckets and two large squirt guns on a slip-proof pad. The pad is popular with toddlers to teenagers, attracting different crowds throughout the day, said lifeguard Phil Mueller as he watched the Bradley chil-

dren play in the water on Monday afternoon. Andrea Bradley said she likes the splash pad because it is easier to keep track of her three children on the small pad as opposed to in the larger pools, which sometimes become crowded. “It’s a nice addition,” she said. “Sometimes it’s a little chaotic over there, and it is nice to be able to come over here.”

The annual Worthington Family Picnic followed by fireworks at Thomas Worthington High School will be the highlight of a weekend of Independence Day festivities in Worthington. Live entertainment, food hot off the grill and fun and games for all ages will be available at the festival, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Dublin Worthington. Everyone is invited to bring chairs or blankets for a picnic beginning at 4 p.m. on the lawn of the high school. The Rotary club will sell food. Entertainment will be provided by Death by Banjo, Big Al and his Capital City Players, Shazzbots, Super Games, and animals from the Columbus Zoo. There will also be a reading of the Declaration of Independence by Worthington high school students and a salute to the anniversary of the Civil War. The city fireworks begin at 10 p.m. at the high school. Worthington Hills and Colonial Hills subdivisions will also

have their traditional Independence Day observances. In Worthington Hills, the Firecracker Trot will begin at 6 p.m. on July 1; a fun festival will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on July 2 at Worthington Hills Elementary School; softball games will be played at the school on July 3, 2 p.m. for kids, 4 p.m. for adults; and the parade will begin at noon on July 4 with fireworks at dusk at the Worthington Hills County Club. The theme of this year’s parade is “Deck the Halls: It’s Christmas in July.” Colonial Hills activities will begin at 8:30 a.m. in July 4 with a 5K run through the hills. The kiddie parade will begin at 10 a.m., followed by games and food at Selby Park throughout the day.

First changes to mall include new entryways By CANDY BROOKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The fluted pillars and 1980s-style gazebo at the main entry to the Shops of Worthington Place will be removed, replaced by a brick entryway with benches and a fire pit. The south entry will be replaced as well, and Talbots will move into the southernmost tenant space, with its own exterior doors. The north entryway will also get some attention, with outdoor and indoor play areas added near the site of the former Gap store. And though the eyesore created where stores were torn down at the north end of the mall will not be finished until next year, a mural will go up to hide the area while construction occurs. Those are a few of the improvements to Worthington Place (the new name of Worthington Square) approved by the Worthington Architectural Review Board at its June 23 meeting. Work on the interior of the mall is to begin immediately and the changes considered at the meeting are also high on the list of projects to be done soon, as the mall is transformed from its fading

understands, is the trend in retailing. “It is the look of the future, it is the look of today,” said ARB chairman Richard Hunter. Though no new tenants for the mall have been announced, Carter said Talbots women’s stores would move into

the site once occupied by Talbots men’s store. Its presence on the south side of the mall will include black awnings and a separate doorway. Besides the south entryway, there will be a new entry on the east side, next to FirstWatch.

The gazebo entrance will be removed, replaced with a brick outdoor area flanked by restaurants with outdoor seating. New pavers will be designed around a fire pit in the middle. Both FirstWatch and a yet-to-benamed restaurant on the other side will feature matching curved windows. “I like the entrances, I like the excitement they seem to bring,” said ARB member James Sauer. The board also approved murals to hide the empty area between the existing mall and Kroger, and perhaps elsewhere on the site. Construction signs that will emphasize that the current shops will remain open were also approved. The board also looked at a proposed new sign, but wanted more details before granting approval. Site work was also approved. The main vehicular entrance from Wilson Bridge Road will extend to Old Wilson Bridge Road, creating a smoother transition. New monument signs at the entrances and poles with permanent banners were approved.

CONTRACTS Continued from page A1 said he was disappointed in the lack of transparency because the document was not available to the public prior to the board vote. School board vice president Jennifer Best praised the support staff. “We appreciate you stepping up to the plate and making concessions,” she said. Board member Charlie Wilson said the lack of drawn-out negotiations results in significant savings for the district in legal fees. “It is a great day for our school

district and our taxpayers,” Wilson said. The current contract, which includes a 1.95-percent cost-of-living raise for calendar year 2011, expires in December. The new contract takes effect June 30 and runs through June 30, 2014. Under the terms of the new agreement, support staff will forgo pay raises starting in the first six months of 2012 and during the entire 2012-13 school year. In the 2013-14 school year, they will receive a 1.25-percent base-pay raise but will forgo scheduled step increases based on longevity.

District treasurer Jeff McCuen said those step increases range from a low of 30 cents per hour to a high of $1.30 an hour and the total annual value of step increases is about $90,000. Under the agreement, support staff will pay any costs toward their health-care premiums beyond the district’s contribution caps: $8,750 for a single plan and $23,100 for a family plan.

Humans to trade spaces with animals at shelter Several staff members and volunteers at the CHA Animal Shelter will spend 24 hours living in dog kennels and the cat room, starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 9. The shelter is located at 3765 Corporate Drive. The new “residents” will eat when the animals eat, get time out of the kennel during walking and play groups and will share their space with a long-term animal. “In addition to spotlighting the shelter’s long-term animals, staff and volunteers hope their experience will allow them to brainstorm on additional enrichment activities for the shelter animals,” according to CHA Animal Shelter development director Terri Montigny. “The mental well-being of shelter animals is just as important as their physical well-being, which is the reason we started the enrichment program in 2008,” shelter director Stephanie Wimbish said in a statement. Wimbish will be one of the staff members spending time in “lock up.” The shelter will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on July 9, allowing people to come in and speak with the staff members and volunteers about their experience and learn more about the animal they

are co-habiting with. Special adoption fees will apply from July 9 through July 16to animals that have been in the shelter for 90 days or longer. Adopting a long-term dog will cost $25 and long-term cats will cost $5. The human residents will get to go “home” if their long-term resident gets adopted that day. The finale of the adoption special will be Picnic with the Pups from 4 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 16. This is CHA’s summer gathering at the shelter, where all dogs will have a special adoption fee of $25 and all cats $5. “Last year at Picnic with the Pups, we had 29 adoptions, which was an amazing day for us,” Wimbish said. “We hope to duplicate our adoption efforts with this promotion and get many animals in their forever homes.” The shelter will be open for adoptions from 1 to 8 p.m. on July 16. Donations made in the shelter the week of July 9-16 will be earmarked for the enrichment fund, which is used to purchase special toys and enrichment activities for the animals in the shelter.

As it were

July 4, 1911, was deadly hot, but ‘safe and sane’ It was a very hot day. July 4, 1911, in Columbus was the hottest Fourth of July since records had begun to be regularly kept in 1878. In fact, it only missed being the hottest day on record by three-tenths of one degree. The temperature peaked in the afternoon at 103.6 degrees Fahrenheit, and some said it was even hotter in some of the more densely populated parts of the city. In a time ED when air conLENTZ ditioning in its modern form did not exist and when electric fans were a luxury only the affluent could afford, heat like this could be — and often was — deadly. William Theis, a 34-year-old barber, walked into a cafe owned by one A. J. Flowers on Russell Street in the Short North. He asked for a glass of water and drank it down. He then dropped dead of heart failure. Mary Gallagher, 74, of Starr Avenue, distraught over a recent death in the family, died of heat prostration on the morning of the holiday. And on the afternoon of the Fourth, Edward Daggett, 16, went for a swim in the Scioto River near the downtown bridges with two friends to escape the heat. The river in those days was rather polluted as it passed through the city, but the young man was used to that. What killed him was the cramp that seized him when he hit the cooler water away from the sweltering shore. His drowned body was found the next day. But with only three deaths, Columbus was more fortunate than some other American cities caught in the same lengthy heat wave. Twenty-seven people died from the heat in Chicago that July 4 and 25 people died in New York. In the major cities of America, more than 134 people died of heat-related causes on Independence Day. So what exactly did people do on a holiday as warm as this one? Actually, they did quite a bit. With virtually every major business, factory, school and government office closed for the day, many people tried to get out of town and celebrate the Fourth where it might be a bit cooler. More than 500 people took the train to Buckeye Lake, where the resort town welcomed them for an old-fashioned celebration of fireworks and fun. Others took the train to Glen Mary on the North Side where Camp Mary Orton is located today, and some traveled from Columbus to Greenwood Lake in Delaware for a quiet day in the country. But most people spent the day close to home. In Columbus in recent years, we have come to expect large public celebrations like Red White and Boom!, with its small, intimate crowd of 500,000, as well as neighborhood fireworks shows on the Fourth of July. But such was not the case a century ago. If anything, Colum-

bus was deeply distrustful of fireworks in 1911. For most of the previous generation, fireworks and ordnance had been available to anybody with the money to buy them. In the years after the Civil War, it was not uncommon for a militia company to fire a salute of rifle and cannon fire on the Fourth — with live ammunition. Workers at factories often set off a quarter keg of black powder, making sure to duck to avoid flying pieces of wood. And children had all sorts of fun setting off all sorts of fireworks — and blowing off all sorts of fingers, toes and facial features in the process. By the turn of the century, many people had come to believe that enough was enough. Spearheaded by the formidable lobbying power of the Daughters of the American Revolution, many cities began to try to celebrate what had come to be called a “Safe and Sane” Fourth of July. A safe and sane Fourth was one in which the only fireworks were set off by professionals. 1910 was the first year for a “Safe and Sane” Fourth in the city, and all in all, it went pretty well; 1911 was even better. In retrospect, some people argued that the young people of Columbus were finally coming to their senses and had learned not blow themselves up. Others simply concluded that it was so incredibly hot that no one had any energy to be mischievous. The real reason was probably somewhere in between. While the safety record of the city with fireworks for July 4 was admirable, a large number of people were out and about, even in the awful heat. Olentangy Park,

the largest amusement park in the city, was located along the Olentangy River, north of the Ohio State University campus. On the Fourth of July, admission was free. For most of the day, the place was packed. And at night, many people stayed for fireworks. Other people spent the day at the Glen Echo Ravine, where the Glen Echo Improvement Association hosted a day of activities and fireworks at night. Others went to a neighborhood celebration hosted by the residents of Ninth Avenue, west of Neil Avenue in the OSU area. But for people living in and near the downtown, the place to be was Statehouse Square. At 2:30 in the afternoon and again 8:30 in the evening, the Battalion Band from Columbus Barracks (later known as Fort Hayes) entertained the public with a concert on the Square. Many people, as they still do today, simply celebrated Independence Day at home. To make the day a little more special, dinner was often served on the porches of the houses or lawns nearby. And after an evening repast, what some would remember more than the fireworks — or the lack thereof — was the large dish of peach ice cream that was served for dessert. Produced in bulk by the Busy Bee restaurant and café in downtown Columbus, the seasonal treat was a “blending of fine ripe Georgia peaches with rich Jersey cream. A quart delivered to your home for the Fourth of July, 50 cents.” It was a pleasant end to warm and memorable day. Ed Lentz writes a history column for ThisWeek.

Group presents Lifetime awards Three Worthington school students and two community residents were honored with Leadership Worthington’s Leadership for a Lifetime awards at the organization’s annual meeting. “These individuals are simply remarkable in the time and effort they passionately give to this community,” said Keenan Blanke, president of Leadership Worthington. “But most of all, they are an inspiration to all of us by how much they accomplish and how much they care.” Lauryn Hickman is the Elementary School Award recipient. A sixth-grader at Worthington Estates, she was recognized for her ability in seeking to understand others. She is a visitor guide at her school, participates in the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Students program, helps primary grade students, assists the school’s book fair activities and is an active participant in the choir and school musicals. Samantha Crozier is the Middle School Award recipient. An eight-grader at McCord, she is founder, president and activities director of Chasing Hope, a student-led nonprofit volunteer organization that raises money to donate to the YMCA Family Center in Columbus. She organizes and recruits volunteers to visit the shelter twice a month, and negotiates with local activity-center venues for the group’s monthly social events. Chasing Hope donated $2,400 to the YMCA Family Shelter raised from the events. Crozier is a member of the volleyball, basketball and softball teams. Frances Lin is the High School

Tweens team up to make a difference In her diary, Anne Frank wrote, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” A group of fourth- through sixth-graders is spending time this summer talking about and acting on ways they can make a difference during Northwest Library’s aptly named Make a Difference Club. The club, which met for the first time on June 21 and will continue to meet on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. through July 12, has already discussed ways to help the elderly. Suggestions ranged from mowing their lawns and holding doors open for them to listening to and remembering their stories. The 18 participants made Fourth of July cards for the library’s homebound patrons. Planting seeds and seedlings was the activity for last week’s session, during which kids discussed ways to improve the environment.

where competitors get 10 pitches but can earn more by correctly answering literature and sports trivia questions. Tweens can also take on members of the Columbus Clippers baseball team during a Wii Baseball contest, scheduled at Old Worthington Library on July 15 at 11 a.m. Safety pins, soda tabs, duct tape and other items will be transformed into stylish accessories during Trash to Trendy: Accessorize, which will be held at Worthington Park Library on July 21 at 2:30 p.m. For more programs, go to Using the drop-down boxes near the top of the screen, you can limit your search to an age range, like tween, or even to a particular library.


During future get-togethers, ways to help animals (where those attending can make catnip toys for the Capital Area Humane Society) and make a difference in the community will be considered. In addition to the Make a Difference Club, Worthington Libraries has several programs planned for fourth- through sixthgraders. Fans of the Harry Potter series are invited to a magical night this Friday, July 8, at 5:30 p.m. at Northwest Library. Games and a costume contest will be followed by a Harry & the Potters concert at 7 p.m. in the library’s back yard. Don’t miss songs like “Gryffindor Rocks,” “The Missing Arm of Viktor Krum” and “Slug Club!” Old Worthington Library will Hillary Kline is communications host a Wiffleball Home Run Derby specialist for Worthington Lion Tuesday, July 12, at 2 p.m., braries. 1064 Bethel Rd., Columbus, OH 43220 614-451-8833

nd Barbara. She’s one Hi kids! Here’s a picture of my frie at the Columbus Zoo and of the bald eagles you can visit to the Zoo in 1998 bald Aquarium. When Barbara moved species list. eagles were on the endangered

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.

Propelled by the 2009 hit song Fire5 flies from the album Ocean Eyes, Adam Young, the braintrust of Owl City, went literally from making processed beats and loops in his parents’ basement to pop music stardom in a few short years. His music career in a whole new stratosphere, Young has returned with a new record titled All Things Bright and Beautiful, and a subsequent tour, which stops at Lifestyle Communities Pavilion on Friday, July 1. Tickets are $25/$28; call 1-800-745-3000. Young was kind enough to answer a few questions posed by The Beat.

The Beat: Could you have imagined the success of Ocean Eyes and the kinds of experiences that success has allowed you to have and what has been the impact and your reaction to it all? Adam Young: Never! I’m an only child from a small town in Minnesota and I was loading trucks for Coca-Cola in a sweaty warehouse two years ago. The music thing started happening and really caught me off guard. I still can’t even believe what’s going on. I remember the moment my manager called me and said one of my tracks when to No. 1 in 24 countries around the world and I almost had a heart attack. It’s been a surprising roller-coaster through and throughout.

Cabo Cocina offers good food, drinks and views Sitting up amid the treetops and watching the evening sun spend its last light on the lazily lapping ripples of the Scioto River was lulling me into a trance. Or perhaps it was the 20-ounce margaritas. Either way, perching on the aerie-like wooden deck at Cabo Cocina was proving to be an inspired idea. In fact, the groovy mood I was enjoying was so relaxing that I didn’t even mind the background reggae-tinged music Cabo plays. Owned by the Historic Dublin Restaurant Group (of the Brazenheads, Oscar’s and Tucci’s fame), Cabo sits like a roomy stone lodge high above the banks of the Scioto near Dublin. And, as I implied, its comfy patio affords some fairly spectacular riparian views. But restaurant reviewers cannot live on setting alone. Therefore, it’s fortunate that Cabo’s food is pretty fun, too. First, though, there shall be hooch. While the fuzzy-making fishbowl-sized house margaritas I alluded to (they also come in 12-ounce versions) are above

by G.A. Benton average, they’re a bit sweet for my palate. My favorite tequila slurp here was an upgrade found on the “Fancy” list — the tighter, brighter and more lime-powered La Classica ($10/$14). Foodwise (chips and an interesting salsa bar are on the house), the slightly spicy Shrimp Tostadas appetizer ($8) delivered the double crunch of deepfried shellfish nachos. Its side players were a cilantro aioli with bits of blue cheese; a warm, smoky and chunky salsa; and a nifty jicama salad. At least as good were the unique Sweet Plantains ($6.50). These were slathered in a spicy, sweet and smoky barbecue type sauce and served with jalapeno pesto plus a cooling-off yogurt dip. As for entrees, Cabo’s got tacos, bur-

ritos, fajitas, et al., but — against type — I preferred the fusion-y, MexiCaribbean stuff from the “Cabo Specialties” section. Among these, the Adobo Pork Mojados ($12.50) were pretty good: big chunks of tender and fatty pig en-

robed in a fruity, red mole-type sauce. These came with excellent beer- and onion-flavored whole “borracho” beans. I got those same neat frijoles, along with cheesy rice, to accompany the recommended Jerk Chicken relleno

($10.50). Served open-faced, the relleno featured charred peppers, tender meat and fruity accents. For more of a showstopper, though, target the Spicy and Crunchy Tilapia ($15). It’s a pretty plate rimmed with a tangy, creamy and smoky tomato sauce and starring darkly crusted, lightly panfried fish. The successful collision of flavors also includes dense, (sometimes) bacon-y smashed plantains, a scorchedcorn salsa and more of that jalapeno aioli. This tilapia’s so good you’ll remember enjoying it even if you later float off into a little summertime trance. I know I did.

New style of barbecue to enter the Columbus market Aloha Hawaiian BBQ & Asian Bistro soon will join the restaurant-laden West Fifth Avenue corridor and serve up its own brand of quick-serve Asian cuisine. Set to open in the next week, the restaurant takes over 2,500 square feet of space in the Shoppes on Fifth, where Buffalo Wild Wings and Five Guys Burgers and Fries are located. The former Panda Express location seats about 60. The family-run restaurant was born of the culinary diverse background of Ken Tsai, the chef and partner who has spent 50 years cooking in the restaurant business.

The new enterprise, 974 W. Fifth Ave., reunites Tsai with Jin Su. The two met while working together 30 years ago in their native Taiwan. Ricky Tsai, son of the chef and also a partner, doesn’t want the restaurant’s name to be misunderstood. Aloha will not serve Hawaiian cuisine, but rather will draw on the state’s reputation as a melting pot of Asian cuisines. The style of food has become increasingly popular on the West Coast, he said. “You don’t see this in the Midwest. This is some-

thing we wanted to bring to the area,” said Tsai, whose wife, Sammi, will manage the restaurant. The menu focuses on a smattering of Hawaiian entrees, many of which use the restaurant’s three homemade barbecue sauces — katsu, teriyaki and Hawaiian barbecue — which offer their own sweet, distinctive tastes. Pork, chicken, shortribs and beef are marinated for 24 hours before being cooked to order. Other dishes, such as the shrimp and mahimahi, are deep-fried. The menu delves into several Asian cuisines: Japanese, Thai and Chinese, with several noodle dishes — soups included — and stir-fried entrees. A few salads and starters are part of the lineup, as well. For logistical reasons, they shied away from sushi but do offer spam musubi, a Hawaiian dish that riffs on Japanese nigiri, a firm square of grilled spam on top of rice and held in place by a band of nori. Tsai said he recognizes the competition from nearby restaurants such as CoCo’s Grill, Happy House, Nong’s Hunan Express and Mark Pi’s Express, so most prices at his restaurant are in the $6.25 to $7.95 range. Alcohol is not served. Aloha is open for lunch and dinner daily. For more information, call 614-298-9688. First Draft columnist Michael Paull suggests trying the mellow IPA from Breckenridge Brewery. The brew is tart upfront and sweet and floral in the Michael Paull finish, he says.

By Chris Parker/ThisWeek

Sammi and Ricky Tsai are among a founding partnership that established the Aloha Hawaiian BBQ & Asian Bistro at 974 W. Fifth Ave.

The Goat tavern has opened at 5730 Silver Falls St., off Hayden Run Road in the Dublin area. It’s the third in central Ohio. At 8,000 square feet, it’s the biggest store yet, and offers two volleyball courts with access to a nearby pool. The place offers a standard tavern bill of fare, including burgers, pizzas, wings, salads, sandwiches and appetizers. The first Goat opened in 2003 in New Albany, followed by another location in Gahanna.

street to a bigger location. The nine-year-old bar now occupies a 2,700square-foot spot at 2096 W. Henderson Road. Owner Jason Eisenhauer said he completely rebuilt the interior of the space, which used to be a salon. He’s also in the process of building a patio. On a related note, the pub has introduced food service, although it’s limited because there is no hood system. The menu includes traditional tavern fare, such as subs, panini sandwiches, pizza and The UA Pub has moved just a hair down the wings.

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 46 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 have See WRESTLING, page C2

Club Soccer

Two OP teams 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 fourteam pool to advance to a semifinal. Four of seven local squads reached a semifinal in 2009 and three of eight area teams made Tourney it to a semifinal coverage, last year. pgs. C4-C5 However, Crew Juniors Under-19 boys 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 U19 boys squad to regional and national titles last year. This year’s Crew Juniors U-19 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 able to win this tournament, and in our case, it ended up being the bad luck of getting a tough draw,” Bliss said. “This team has as much or more talent than 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 U-13 team played Eclipse Select and the U-16 team played KCFC Force from Kansas. The finals were held June 29. Regional champions in the U14 through U-19 age groups advanced to the U.S. Youth Soccer Association National Championships on July 27-31 in Phoenix. The Ohio Premier Eagles’ U18 and U-19 teams each went 21 to finish second in their pools. Ohio Premier Eagles U-13 coach Kevin Dougherty was surprised to see his squad outscore its 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 advancing.

Legion Baseball

Post 239 again eyes state tourney By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The quest for the Worthington Post 239 baseball team every summer is to reach the American Legion state tournament. However, it’s the road there that is the enjoyable part for coach Jim Townsend. “Helping the kids reach their goals and watching their progression is the fun part,” Townsend said. “There are always frustrations, but how you deal with them and the approach to correcting mistakes is the key. When you see them working on what you’re trying to fix and you see them suc-

ceed, it becomes very worthwhile.” Post 239 went 2-2 at state last season. It finished 30-6 overall and 15-1 in District 12 play. “Our goal is always to reach state and it’s been that way since back in the 1970s when I was (playing),” Townsend said. “We’ll be extremely disappointed if we don’t advance to state again this season.” Post 239 was 14-6 entering this week, after going 2-1 in pool play in the Dick Kuehn Wood Bat Classic in Cincinnati. Post 239 was one of the top four seeds in the championship round, but rain June 26 canceled the finals.

The lone loss for Post 239 in the tournament was 5-0 to Pickerington Post 283 on June 24, but victories over Elkhart, Ind. (8-0) and Pekin, Ill. (5-2) gave it the fourth seed in the 12-team tournament. “Our pitching and defense has been carrying us,” Townsend said. “We’ve got good depth on the mound with four guys who can go deep into games and a couple of others who we’re hoping we’ll get back at full strength as we go on.” The top four pitchers are 2011 high school graduates Alio Gasbarro and Cody Strayer of Worthington Kilbourne, Blake Adkins of Thomas Worthington and Sean

Hoy of Watterson. Andy Bean, a 2010 Upper Arlington graduate and an Ohio University walk-on, was injured last summer with Post 239 and just began pitching again after having elbow surgery. Sam Bohon, a 2010 Thomas graduate who plays for the University of Evansville, is an injured left-handed pitcher who likely won’t return this summer. Others in college on the roster are Sam Adams, a Thomas graduate who plays catcher and outfield, and Thomas Zigo, a Dublin Coffman product who plays outSee LEGION, page C2

Wood-Bat Baseball

Gahanna squad edges Cobras in U-16 final By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Area fans were treated to some old-school baseball on June 2226. The fourth annual Worthington/Phoenix Wood Bat Tournament was held at eight fields in central Ohio, with the championship games played at Worthington Kilbourne High School on June 26. Fifty teams competed in the Under-16 and U-18 divisions, an increase from 40 entries last year and eight in the tournament’s first year in 2008. Proceeds from the tournament benefited the Kilbourne baseball program. Tournament director Travis Cox began the event four years ago, looking to give players and fans a different perspective of the game. “A lot of the coaches grew up playing in the wood-bat era, so they’re trying to get their kids to see what it was like to play like that when they were kids,” Cox said. “It definitely changes the atmosphere of the game. Pitchers learn to throw strikes a lot more because they know kids are going See SOCCER, page C6 to struggle hitting with the wood

bat. You see a lot more small ball, bunts, hit and run. The games are 2-1, 3-2.” The tournament kicked off with a college showcase event on June 22 at Kilbourne. Seventy players participated in the event, which allowed them to display their skills

to the college coaches in attendance. The Gahanna American Legion Post 797A team defeated the Columbus Cobras 3-2 in the U16 championship game. Post 797A improved to 15-4. Pitcher Alec Touhy, who will

be a junior at Gahanna, pitched a complete game. He allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked one. Post 797A broke a scoreless tie with three runs in the fourth inning. The key hit was Alex Delp’s two-run single. Touhy drew a

bases-loaded walk to score Christian Chiero with the third run against starting and losing pitcher Cody Seagraves. The Cobras, comprised of players entering their sophomore year, closed to within 3-2 with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Alec McCurry led off the fourth with a double and scored on Jarrett Peters’ single. Andrew Chacey singled with two outs in the fifth and scored on Kyle Casserly’s single. Touhy retired the side in order in the seventh. “This is big,” Touhy said. “This team has played together since (the players were) 14 and 15 (years old). We’ve come so close and we’ve actually never got it done, so this is a big deal.” After losing to the Grove City Titans 7-5 on June 23, Post 797A bounced back to win its final four games to finish the tournament with a 5-1 record. “I’m very proud of the boys,” Post 797A coach Mark Cararo said. “They worked awfully hard to come back. I just can’t say enough about them. The demeanor of the boys was still positive. They See TOURNEY, page C2

Tyler Stephen, who recently was named coach of the Dublin Jerome High School girls tennis team, will enter his new job this fall with a fresh perspective of the sport in central Ohio.

Each match consisted of 10 courts — two boys singles matches, two girls singles matches, two boys doubles matches, two girls doubles matches and two mixed doubles matches. The boys roster featured Watterson’s Aaron Casares, Jerome’s Kent Seitz, Gahanna’s Canyon Teague and Upper Arlington’s Eric Vannatta and Nate Wallace. The girls players were Lauren

WRESTLING Continued from page C1 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 275-pound 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 figure four

“We’re 15-year-olds playing in a 16-year-old tournament,” Cobras coach Tim Peters said. “We had great pitching and the kids did well. It came down to a onerun ballgame. I don’t think anyone expected us to be here this weekend.” The Ohio Yankees of Akron dominated opponents in winning

the U-18 title. The Yankees defeated the Dayton Dodgers 8-0 in five innings in the championship game and outscored their opponents 30-3 in the tournament. The top area team was the Ohio Elite, which reached a semifinal but lost to the Dodgers 11-4 to finish 4-2.

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.”

Buckeye Elite event to attract more than 200 teams By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

About 210 teams from 15 states and Canada are scheduled to play in the eighth annual Buckeye Elite Showcase Tournament that will be held Wednesday, July 6, through July 10 in central Ohio. The tournament is divided into four divisions: Under-14, U-15, U-16 and U-18. More than 40 area high school and college fields will play host to games, said Jeff Dutiel, the chief financial officer for the tournament. The event begins with a skills showcase on July 6 at Dublin Coffman, where athletes will test their abilities in front of college coaches and pro scouts. Worthington-based Big League Baseball School will conduct the invitation-only event. “Our biggest thing is to get the kids looks for colleges,” Dutiel said. The competition also will feature a Buckeye Elite Night on July 8 at Huntington Park. Before the Columbus Clippers’ game against the Toledo Mud Hens, the teams in the tournament will parade onto the field and players will participate in on-

field contests. Players also will have a chance to be honorary bat boys and throw out the first pitch. In tournament play, each division will be divided into pools: 20 four-team pools in U-18, 16 four-team pools in U-16, 14 threeteam pools in U-15 and four fiveteam pools in U-14. In U-18, the winner of each pool will advance to gold championship single-elimination play, leading up to the gold champi-

onship game on July 10 at Huntington Park. The second-place team in each pool will compete in silver championship play, with the final to be played at Olentangy High School on July 10. In U-16, the gold championship game will be at Huntington Park and the silver championship game will be at Dublin Coffman on July 10. In U-15, the gold and silver championship games will be at Dublin Jerome on July 10. In U-14, the gold and

silver championship games will be at Don Edwards Park in Newark on July 9. Each team that does not qualify for gold or silver championship play will compete in a consolation game on July 9. The Ohio Elite baseball program is expected to field teams in the U-14, U-15 and U-18 divisions. Dublin Jerome coach Chris Huesman will guide his U-17 team in the U-18 division.

“The Under-17 is the most critical time for a high school player in summer ball because that’s where all the college coaches are,” Huesman said. “All the college coaches are recruiting for their 2012 class and this is the most important time for these kids, so you want to take them to all the showcases or tournaments that will have the most exposure, and Buckeye Elite is one of those.” The Columbus Cobras baseball program will enter teams in

the U-14 and U-18 divisions. Harry Huskey will coach the U18 team, which won the tournament in 2009. “The caliber of this tournament is really good,” Huskey said. “There are teams from all over the Midwest. We use this tournament to see where we’re at before we head off to the World Series.”

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.”

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,” 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.” 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,” 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,” 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.” 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),” 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.” 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.” •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,” 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.” 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.

Women’s Basketball

Area players shine for Hidden Gems By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Tapre Young could have several options in terms of her basketball career if things continue in the direction they’ve been going this summer. Now in her third season as a captain on the Columbus Hidden Gems semi-professional team, the 2004 Dublin Scioto High School graduate is one of the top outside shooters in the Women’s Blue Chip Basketball League. At 5-foot-11, Young averages more than 15 points and has been shooting better than 50 percent from 3-point range. That combination could make her an attractive possibility for overseas teams looking for players for their seasons, which begin in the fall. “I haven’t played anywhere overseas, but hopefully I will after this season,”Young said. “I really wouldn’t mind playing in Spain, France or anywhere in Europe. I’d even consider Australia. Any time you can get paid for what you do, it’s a good thing.” If Young is unable to land a professional contract, she has an offer to serve as an assistant coach for the Talladega (Ala.) College women’s team. After graduating from Scioto, Young played two seasons for Muskingum and two seasons for Salem International, a Division II school in Salem, W.Va. She then served one season as a student-assistant coach and graduated from Talladega College. Young, who celebrated her 25th birthday June 26, is one of seven players on the Hidden Gems who are central Ohio natives. “(The Women’s Blue Chip

League) is good competition, especially when you get to nationals,” Young said. “I like the fact that you get an opportunity to play and it gives you the opportunity to get looked at overseas. It’s a chance to showcase your talents.” After getting off to a 2-0 start, the Hidden Gems were 3-4 after losing to the Cleveland Crush 8474 on June 25. On Saturday, July 2, Columbus will play host to the OaklandMacomb Run from Oakland, Mich., in a Northeast Division game. The Hidden Gems lost to the Run 87-67 on June 5 but won a rematch 97-85 on June 12. The Hidden Gems play their home games at Lazelle Woods Recreation Center in north Columbus near Worthington. The roles of Young and co-captain Lorrie Poindexter, a 2003 Beechcroft graduate in her second year playing for Columbus, are more extensive than a year ago when former Ohio State player Brandie Hoskins and former Bowling Green player Niki McCoy were among the key players. Jeannie Saunders, who also was a captain a year ago, has been out with an injury but could return in July. Saunders and 2006 Delaware graduate Ashleigh Brown, who has played limited minutes with

the Hidden Gems this season because of other commitments, recently signed extensions to play for a team in Sweden in the fall. Jamika Banks, a Fort Wayne, Ind., native who also was expected to play for Columbus, currently is playing in Australia. Catherine Cain, a Dayton native, has been averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds. Jessica Slack, a Thornville Sheridan graduate, averages 13 points. The other central Ohio natives on the Hidden Gems are 1999 Brookhaven graduate Ebony Pegues, 2001 Mifflin graduate Sherrie Griffin, 2006 Africentric graduate Janicia Anderson and 2003 Walnut Ridge graduate Tina Huff. Columbus has three games remaining in the regular season before competing in the regional tournament in late July in Flint, Mich. The national tournament will be held Aug. 6-7 in Atlanta. Poindexter will begin her third season this winter as the girls basketball coach at Walnut Ridge. “I think everything is going OK,” said Poindexter, who is averaging 14 points and five assists. “We’re a whole new team really and we’ve just got to work together better. We’re better than the teams that have beaten us. We

Green U17 (0-1-2) and Team Ohio F.C. Juventus U-16 (1-2) each placed third. Classics Eagles U-13 coach Mike Lentz said most teams were just a couple favorable bounces or calls away from winning an extra game or two to advance. “There’s a lot of parity at this level,” Lentz said. “Looking at our bracket, three of the four teams could have come out on top on any given weekend.”

COOL! While there was once a time when self-conscious hearing instrument users concealed their devices carefully behind locks of hair and hid them in their bedroom bureau drawers, those days are over! Today, young hearing instrument users are looking for new ways to personalize the look of their instruments, much in the way that they brandish their cherry-red cell phones or wear designer eyeglass frames. The fact is that it is no longer unusual to see a person wearing a wireless listening device in his or her ear; in fact, it is downright fashionable! So, young people make the most of what they have by personalizing their hearing instruments. As they say, if you‘ve got it, flaunt it! At ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS we strongly encourage anyone who is concerned about their hearing to seek professional advice and have a comprehensive hearing exam. Let us test your hearing with our state-of-the-art computerized prescription analyzer! We are the only digital hearing aid specialist in Central Ohio using this amazing state-of-the-art system. 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. Many of our patients have discovered that traveling to Gahanna was worth their drive. We are First in Class on Angie List, we beat competitor’s pricing by 25% - 70%, we have the top 10 leading hearing aid brands, and we put our customer’s first. We are located at 1000 Morrison Road Suite H, Gahanna. Come see why patients are willing to make the drive to invest in their hearing. We look forward to hearing from you.

We handle Starkey, Phonak, Siemens, Unitron, MicroTech, GN ReSound, Rexton, Oticon, and Widex. Plus, we have the same products as NU-Ear, Audibel, AudioSync, and Miracle Ear, but you will save $1,000’s with us! We take a bite out of the cost of hearing aids!
