SYLVANIA- Thescorebooks have closed on thisyear’s basketball seasons for the girls and boys teams fromSouthview and Northview butthe head coaches from eachrespective school have fondmemories of the season andhigh hopes for their program’sfutures.Northview girl’s basketballhead coach Jerry Sigler’sLady Kats captured a secondconsecutive Northern LakesLeague title with a 13-1conference record (18-4overall) and made it to the
district semi-nals before
bowing out to a strong andtalented Notre Dame Academyteam.“I though that we had anoutstanding year,” Sigler said.Northview was paced byjunior guard Miriam Justinger,whom Sigler considers tobe one of the best players inNorthwest Ohio. Justinger, athree-year starter for the LadyKats, led the NLL in scoringaveraging 16.8 points per game. For her efforts, she was
named to the All-NLL rst
team, All-Toledo Blade team,
the Division I All-District rst
team, and the All-Ohio thirdteam.Junior guard Skylar Roseand junior forward JessicaJessing joined Justinger among the scoring leaders for of the NLL with 11.0 and 10.1scoring average respectively.Jessing also received All-
NLL rst team honors and was
named to the to the All-Districtthird team.Rose was named to the All-NLL second team and receivedspecial mention for all districthonors.Seniors Valerie Sohasky,who will be playing basketballat Indiana Wesleyan Universitynext year, and KatelynnMcCoy were in the topechelon of rebounding leadersin the league pulling down6.4 and 5.9 caroms per gamerespectively.Coach Jerry Sigler commented that senior Tori
Busby, who was rst off of 
the bench this season wasinvaluable as the team’s “sixthman.”“She did a tremendous jobfor us this year,” Sigler stated.Southview head coachMarc Jump considers this pastseason to be successful as well.His young Cougars compiledan 11-10 overall record and
nished 8-6 in the Northern
Lakes League.“It was a winning season,”Jump said. “We had a younggroup of kids with only threeseniors on the roster. Weworked hard to get better everyday.”Jump commented thatbefore the season started histeam lacked experience in “biggame” situations. However,as the season unfolded theCougars found themselvesplaying in plenty of big games.Seven contests were decidedin overtime or by three pointsor less in regulation play.“We had some real thrillingbasketball this year,” Jumpstated.
Jump reected that his team
was literally three possessionsaway from being 11-3 in theleague.Junior Allen Gant, whoaveraged 15.3 points per gamethroughout the season, was
named to the All-NLL rst
team and All-District thirdteam. The three-year starter,who also grabbed over sevenrebound a game, was namedas the team’s Most ValuablePlayer.Senior De’Nard Pinckney(8 points and 3 rebounds per game) was named to the All-NLL second team and receivedspecial mention for all districthonors.Todd Bostater, Southviewgirl’s basketball head coach,credits senior Taylor Halland sophomore Lexi Lopezfor stepping up to share pointguard duties and running theteam after losing Ariel Gaston,who transferred to Start for her senior year and starting pointguard Andrea Abouahmed to
an ACL tear ve games into
the season.With Hall and Lopezjointly commanding the team,
the Lady Cougars nished
their campaign with a 13-9overall record and an 8-6 NLLconference mark. The teamcaptured a sectional title witha thrilling 53-52 overtime winover Central Catholic before
falling to state semi-nalistStart in the district semi-nals.
Lopez led the Lady Cougarsin both scoring and reboundingaveraging 13.6 points and over six rebounds a game placingher among the leaders in bothcategories in the league. Her play on the hardwood garneredLopez a spot on the All-NLL
rst team and All-District third
team.Hall, averaging better than10 points a contest, was asecond team All-NLL selectionand received special mentionfor all district honors.At the team’s season-ending awards ceremony,Lopez received the offensiveplayer of the year award whileHall was named the defensiveplayer of the year. Senior Olivia O’Reilly received thecoach’s award.Terry Shadle, head coach of the Northview boy’s basketballteam, wrapped up his third year at the helm with a 4-17 record(2-12 NLL).“We were prettyinexperienced all year. Wetruly didn’t have a very muchvarsity experience and itshowed,” Shadle stated.According to Shadle, senior forward Jacob Sturt possessedthe most varsity experience onthe young Wildcat team. Sturt
nished the season averaging
over eight points per game and
better than ve rebounds.
His teammate, sophomoreguard Conner Hartnett, ledthe team in scoring with a10.5 points per game average.Hartnett was named to theAll-NLL second team andreceived special mention in theall district balloting.Shadle stated the highlightof the season, especially for his senior players, was theWildcats’ 52-51 overtimewin over cross-town rivalSouthview.
“It was the nal home game
for the seniors and what agreat way for them to end their careers in the last home gameof the season,” Shadle said.Since high school sports isa constant revolving door of players entering and exitinga program, Southview headcoach Marc Jump commentedon bidding farewell to hissenior players stating, “Youalways appreciate the effortsthat the guys have given for four years. These seniors areno different. They have beena big part of everything thatwe have done and who we areand we are going to really missthem.Head coaches Sigler,Bostater, and Shadle echoedthis sentiment.Looking forward, all of thecoaches said the future looksbright for their respectiveprograms and they will behard at work in their gyms allsummer long working out nextyear’s teams.

The Sylvania historybooks state there was anannual Bean Festival fromthe late 60s to the late 70s.Not having grown up here, Iwondered what that was allabout. Why beans? Amused,I imagined a bean queen.So, I started researchingthis event and discovered,among other things, therewas indeed a bean queeneach year!The Allen V. SmithInc. company was a beanpacking and processingplant in Sylvania. It wasbuilt in 1951 adjacent tothe railroad behind theSouthbriar shopping center.It was located here becauseof its proximity to nearby
farmers and was Sylvania’s
only local industry at thetime. They packed beansunder the label Smith
Old York and others. 26
varieties of beans, barleyand split peas were handledat the plant, over 1.5 millionpounds processed permonth.In a 1973 SylvaniaSentinel article, theypaid homage to the bean,explained why there was abean festival since 1969 andincluded this anecdote: “Arecent incident at the plantbrought about a temporarydistaste for beans for oneemployee. He looked at therailroad car of loose beansand thought it would be fun
to jump in. It wasn’t. Buried
to the neck, he had to bepulled out by a tow chainand shivered for two hoursafterwards, not realizinghow cold a bean could get.”Held on the grounds of the Democratic Club onCentennial Road in the earlyyears, the festival was anonpartisan affair and a truecommunity event. In 1972,it was held at WhetstonePark behind Starlite Plaza.The programs were plannedby the Sylvania Jaycees, St.Francis Guild and Knightsof Columbus.
In 1974, Sylvania’s
mayor Warren Schusterhad the great idea to have
Orson Bean as master of 
ceremonies for the beanfestival. The famouscelebrity was duly invited.
Alas, he couldn’t make it,
as he was appearing oneighteen talk shows thatweek!Each year boasteddifferent menus, activitiesand entertainment. Servedwas, of course, bean soup,using an old farm recipe,and bean dinners. There wasalso cornbread, spaghettiand other delectables.There were dunking booths,creative dried bean dishcontests, parades, sky diversand more. The multi-daycelebrations were quite fun,apparently, and Sylvaniaresidents threw themselvesinto the festivitiesenthusiastically (but notinto the railroad car!).Miss Bean was selectedfrom thirteen candidatesby “an impartial panel of mayor, grocer, beauticianand editor.” I assume thesewere various young ladiesfrom Sylvania schools andthey probably wore the titleproudly, as well as lovelygowns, tiaras and sashes.Hey, I just had a thought.Were you or a member of your family ever a beanqueen or runner-up? Shareyour memories by emailingto SylvaniaHistory@gmail.com or calling 419-318-9632 and it could appear ina future column!
