Kiwanis unveil splash pad project for Stadium
DHI Media Staff reports
DELPHOS — The Kiwanis Club of Delphos has been
kicking around the idea of building a splash pad at Stadium
Park for several years and it looks like those plans will come
to fruition in the spring of 2017.
A splash pad is a recreation area for water play that has
no standing water. Because of the zero-depth water play
area, it can be operated without lifeguards or attendants. The
splash pad provides endless hours of fun for the entire family. It combines the sensations of different water movements
– flowing, misting and jetting.
The projected cost of the nearly 4,000-square-foot splash
pad with 29 unique water features is $350,000 with a targeted completion date for summer 2017. Innovative recirculation and capture and repurpose water management systems
reduce water consumption.
Vortex Aquatic Structures International is recognized
worldwide as a leader in the design of aquatic play structures
and has designed and will be overseeing the installation of
the project. The splash pad will be a self-contained standalone play area and will be incorporated as part of the existing swimming pool.
Unscripted free play encourages children to create their
own experiences. The splash pad will bring people together
of all ages and physical capabilities.
“The Splash Pad will be another fantastic attraction for
the young people of Delphos. We want children to get outside and be active. The Splash Pad will not have any age
restrictions, making it a fun activity for the whole family,”
Kiwanis Club president Jamey Wisher said.

DELPHOS — The Delphos
Jefferson Competition Cheer
Team is enjoying a successful
freshman run with an appearance at state competition
March 6 in Columbus.
The team was formed
about a year ago with the support of parents, cheerleaders
and school administration and
then approved by the board of
education. The team is fully
self-funded through numerous
fundraisers and parent/guardian support.
After a very successful
summer and early fall fair
and festival competition season, the cheerleaders continued on for the dream of a
regional qualification into the
OASSA State Cheerleading
Competition.
“After many difficult
practices, hard work, and
dedication, the first Winter

Teman and Beth Geise said.
Jefferson will compete at
St John’s Arena in Columbus
in Division 4, Non-Mount in
the morning session beginning

at 9 a.m. Their routine must
consist of perfection, tumbling passes, jump sequences,
numerous formation changes,
defined and sharp motions,

MARION TOWNSHIP — Marion Township residents will see a familiar issue on their March Primary
ballots. Trustees are again asking voters to pass a .75mill, five-year operations levy.
“We are feeling the pinch like everyone else,”
Township Trustee Jerry Gilden said. “We keep losing
Local Government Funds and other monies and still
have to provide the same services.”
Since 2008, the township has lost an average of
$101,154 a year, an approximate 25-percent decrease,
in income from the state.
“The fact is, the State of Ohio has caused this
problem to take care of their problems,” Gilden
said. “They now have a Rainy Day Fund at its
max.”
The new levy will generate approximately $113,625
costing $26.25 per $100,000 valuation. If passed, this
will put the township’s funding back to the 2008 level.
Gilden said the levy benefits those who live in
Delphos as well as the rural residents.
“As soon as you leave town, you are on township
roads,” Gilden explained. “With the cuts that have
been made, our only alternative is to not maintain our
roads and reduce snow plowing. Residents are going
to see a reduction in services.”
The township serves just over 6,700 people and
is responsible for the maintenance and care of 45.31
miles of roads (paving, chip sealing, crack sealing
and plowing), mowing the road ditches; drainage tile,
catch basin, culvert and road sign repair and replacement; and mows three cemeteries.

St. John’s students engineering success

DELPHOS —Research indicates that by 2018, the U.S. will
have more than 1.2 million unfilled
STEM jobs because there will not
be enough qualified workers to
fill them. St. John’s High School
juniors and seniors are getting a
taste of what it would be like to be
an engineer, one of those STEM
positions that may go unfilled if
qualified people are not found.
Teacher Jeff Bockey and
assistant Tim Staup are proving
Principals of Engineering using

Project Lead The Way, the nation’s
leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math
(STEM) programs.
Students are using Auto CAD
software, drawing and drafting
their way to producing a train
engine. While it sounds simple, the
young engineers are building skills
not offered in most of their other
classes.
“These students are learning
how to draw and use math and
language skills they aren’t used to,”
Staup said. “It’s also bringing students together and they learn each
other’s strength and weaknesses.”
Bockey likens the offering to the

old drafting classes.
“Students are using the computer instead of a paper and pencil,” he
said. “The biggest drive behind the
program is to get students to think
in a different way. This is a unique
opportunity and a good base course
for the first year of college.”
Students use statistics and other
math skills to bring their drawing to
life, carefully marking off the measurements of each piece of the train
engine. While they build their train,
they learn how to read blueprints
and other documentation related to
the project.

Local/State
Riedel running for State Rep.
Information submitted

Craig Riedel, a Defiance
Republican, has announced
his candidacy and filed his
nominating petitions for State
Representatives for Ohio’s
82nd House District, which
includes Defiance, Paulding,
and Van Wert Counties as
well as part of northern
AuGlaize County.
Riedel, 49, a retired businessman, is excited to begin
his campaign for office. He
looks forward to speaking
with the citizens of the 82nd
District in the coming year,
and sharing his ideas on how
to improve the state of Ohio.
“Our best days lay ahead of
us and I cannot wait to get
started,” said Riedel.
Craig grew up in north
central Ohio on a farm just
outside a small town named
Attica. He played football,
basketball, and baseball as
a youth and graduated from
Seneca East High School in
1984. He went on to earn a
civil engineering degree from
The Ohio State University
in June of 1988. Shortly
after graduating from OSU
he took a job with Nucor
Vulcraft Group as a design
engineer, and he and his
newly wedded wife, Danette,

Riedel
moved to Fort Wayne, IN.
In 1989, they bought their
first home in Defiance, Ohio.
Craig enjoyed a 27 year long
career with Nucor. Most of
his tenure with Nucor was
spent in a sales capacity with
the last 13 being Division
Sales Manager. The Riedel
family moved several times
during his Nucor career: living in Fort Wayne, IN; Grand
Rapids, MI; Springfield, OH;
and finally the last stop being
back in Defiance, OH. Craig
retired from Nucor in June
of 2015 in order to follow
his passion and hopes to represent his friends and fellow citizens as their State
Representative.
“As part of the manage-

ment team at Nucor, I helped
strategically lead our company into the future. I want to
do the same for the state of
Ohio.”
Riedel has been very
active in the communities
where he has lived. He was
a youth football, basketball,
and baseball coach, and he
and his wife have always
been active member in their
church. He recently was a
member of Defiance St. Mary
Pastoral Council and currently serves as a Eucharistic
minister. He is an officer
with the Defiance High
School Athletic Boosters and
is a member of the Defiance
Rotary Club. He volunteers
his time freely with community projects and activities.
Craig is a service minded
man who feels a duty to help
his community and neighbors.
Craig and Danette, who
is a licensed practical nurse,
have two adult children. Steve
lives in Columbus, OH and
Renee in Chicago, IL. Both
are graduates of Defiance
High School and Ohio State.
Craig and Danette have been
married for 27 years.
Getting back to his
retirement at the age of 49,
Craig stated that the reason

he reached this decision is
because he felt a tug in his
heart for more in his life. He
is not interested in money or
fame or notoriety, but, “I just
want to serve, and I knew
this was the right thing for
me,” he stated. Since Riedel
is a seasoned business man,
he feels that this experience
will equate to a good foundation for entering the political
arena. Riedel has no previous
political experience, which
he feels gives him an advantage because he has new eyes
and fresh perspectives to the
race. He stands on strong
conservative values such as
the sanctity of life and support for the 2nd amendment.
It is an important concept to
Riedel to lead by example,
with honesty and integrity,
and these are things he can
do. He truly believes that he
can help this country get back
on track and rediscover the
conservative values and principles it was founded upon.

LIMA — The story of African-American
history in Lima and the area is not one
story. It is an epoch made of hundreds of
stories, some reaching back to the early
19th century. Early Black settlements in
West Central Ohio have barely left a trace
of those who attempted to etch out a life.
Where did they go and what is their legacy?
The rapid industrialization of the twentieth century saw the migration of Blacks
from the southern states to the north. With
the promise of jobs, and holding onto
hopes, these southerners found themselves
in unfamiliar, and often, uncomfortable
territory.
The Allen County Historical Society is
pleased to present Eugene Jackson who
will offer a presentation on “The Black

“the wickedest city in Alabama,” Jackson
moved to Lima in 1956 at the age of 10.
His father had secured a job at General
Motors in Defiance. Jackson attended public school and graduated from Lima Senior
before attending Clark Technical School,
where he studied engineering. He then
enlisted in the Air Force, attaining the
level of Staff Sergeant. What started as a
summer job at Ford led to a career. Jackson
retired from supervision at the Lima Ford
Engine Plant after 33 years.
His hobby of researching and sharing
African-American history began nearly
fifty years ago. Since then, Mr. Jackson
has offered presentations on his research
at area schools, universities, and organizations. He and his wife, Henri Alice, have
five children and 21 grandchildren.
This program is free and open to the
public.

Wait ‘til next year!
Hope
springs
Jim Metcalfe
eternal.
That is the mantra of most Major
League
Baseball
fans as their favorite teams have their
pitchers and catchers
report to the annual
“Holiday” known as
spring training this
week.
Yes, it must be disgusting for these men to “have to” report
to locales in Arizona and Florida, especially if they are residing in cold-weather climes such as Ohio and Michigan and
Minnesota, and go to work.
Poor guys! I feel your pain!
It also means that spring — and presumably warmer temperatures — are coming as well and that is always a welcome
respite for us Northerners after winter.
Yes, perhaps this winter wasn’t as harsh as late one — perhaps? How about not even close? — but it seems that this “ole”
body can’t take what it used to take.
Oh well, we all have that lament, don’t we?
As I wrote in the opening paragraph, hope spring eternal —
except this year for teams like our beloved Cincinnati Reds.
The major makeover that began even four years ago —
remember, pitchers such as Edison Volquez and Bronson
Arroyo were on this team as of then but the Reds understandably couldn’t afford to keep them all — that accelerated last
year and continued into this off-season isn’t done yet.
Let’s face it, how many of us think that Jay Bruce will
remain a Red much into this season, especially by the trade
deadline?
Joey Votto will remain a Red because his contract makes
him almost untradeable — except for the cavernous pockets of
a Los Angeles Dodgers organization if they decide they could
use him eventually because they have the prospects in their
farm system to compensate — and so will Brandon Phillips
(because he apparently wants to be) unless this team is even
more miserable than what we are anticipating.
Let’s face it; we all think the 2016 season will be one miserable six months for this franchise, especially after the hopes
that were kindled when we had all the guns together just a
couple of years ago.
It seems even the powers-that-be in the Queen City
acknowledge this rebuilding — more like blowing up and
starting all over — will last for a few seasons.
Even the return of some high-quality players like Devin
Mesoraco, Zach Cozart and Homer Bailey from injury is cautious.
The first two are expected back to full form by Opening
Day but to expect Mesoraco to come back from hip surgery
as a catcher and Cozart from reconstructive knee surgery as a
shortstop to pick right back up where they left off might be a
fairy tale.
I understand medicine has done unbelievable things but
it’s still the human body in two very physically demanding
positions.
And Homer has always been maddeningly inconsistent
— he has the “stuff” to be a true No. 1 but shows no signs
of doing so and is coming off Tommy John surgery; that still
isn’t the easiest thing to return to form from, especially by a
flamethrower.
How much longer can Brandon play at that high of a level?
Can Bruce return to his form of even a couple of years ago?
Will Billy Hamilton finally become a consistent leadoff
hitter — or even a hitter, period, and be more than just a
base-stealing whiz?
That “set” lineup outside of left field and third base
(Eugenio Suarez, who has potential) isn’t so set, if you ask me.
Methinks Votto will be walked a ton until they can prove
they can protect him in that lineup and I am sure that will be
very frustrating for him.
At least the rotation won’t be all rookies — just second-year
guys and other unprovens!
And the bullpen will be … we’ll see.
The Reds hope they can sign some veterans during spring
training to add depth but that is a question mark to say the least.
I understand why the Reds felt they had to trade Aroldis
Chapman (a far too expensive luxury for a team rebuilding)
and the others (a small market just can’t spend like a big one:
Kansas City and Houston will have to face this scenario in
about two years when those stars will need to be paid).
It just … stinks!

Metcalfe’s
Musings

Jefferson senior Jessica Pimpas has some awfully tight quarters to operate within Tuesday night in Division III
Sectional-opening action at Bluffton University: Paulding twin towers Faith Vogal (6-0) and Bri Townley (5-10). (DHI

Lady ’Cats end Panthers’ season
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
BLUFFTON — Sectional girls basketball opened around the area Tuesday
night.
Jefferson and Paulding met up once
again after meeting Feb. 4, this time in
the Division III Sectional at Bluffton
University’s “The Dam” inside the
Sommer Center.
The Red and White had dispatched
the Panthers 63-36 then in the Northwest
Conference.
As one might expect, this time was
much closer but the outcome wasn’t as
the Lady Wildcats (12-11) grabbed a
53-39 victory.
Last time, Jefferson used a 15-0 run
in the first period to take command.
This time around, it was again a
quick start that paced the Wildcats —
13-2 with four each from seniors Jessica
Pimpas (8 markers, 6 boards) and Tori
Black — with an early basket by Pimpas
giving the Wildcats the lead for good
at 2-0. This time, the Panthers (3-19)
had other plans behind four each from
junior Allison Arend (8 counters) and
freshman Bri Townley (11 counters, 16
boards, three blocks). The battled within
15-12 on a transition jumper by sophomore Audrey Manz (6 points) at 18 ticks
before Jefferson senior Bailey Gorman
banked in a foul-line jumper to beat the
horn for a 17-12 edge.
Both coaches agreed that the start
would be different coming in.
“You expect them to be better.
Paulding is a young and inexperienced
team that gained more as they went
on,” Jefferson mentor Dave Hoffman
explained. “They didn’t turn it over as
much and they got some help from the
JV team. Still, we wanted to use our
pressure to force them to adjust. Every
time we changed it, it took them a

possession or two to adjust to it and it
was effective. We would deny one time
down and then not the next. Again, it
was effective in getting us some transition looks.”
“We still had too many turnovers but
we did better at handling the ball. It was
a step for a young team to continue to
make, even though our season came to
an end,” Paulding coach Mark Rhodes
noted. “Every chance we could, we’d
make adjustments and the girls responded. Jefferson just did the same things
they have done in the past that have
worked for them and it did again tonight
with their experience against our inexperience coming through in the end.”
The second quarter was the doom
for the young Panthers. They combined
2-of-7 shooting — with Manz scoring
their only baskets at 4:05 and 3:20 —
and 11 turnovers (29 total). Delphos,
which used a combination of pressures
to confuse the Panthers, turned that
largesse into points. Despite their own
seven errors (14 for the game), they
drained 5-of-10 shots and 6-of-10 free
throws (a cold 13-of-29 total for 44.9%)
— with senior Taylor Stroh (4 assists, 3
steals, 3 rebounds) downing six of her
11 markers — to erect a 33-16 edge on
her two foul shots with 48.6 ticks on the
board.
Paulding took better care of the ball
in the third (7 errors) and shot 5-of-10.
However, they put the Wildcats on the
line eight times, though they hit only
two. Thus, the Panthers — with four
from Arend — couldn’t get any closer
than 15 — 43-28 on a bomb from junior
Skyler McCullough at 55 ticks — before
a steal and layin by sophomore JV callup Mikayla Bennett (5 steals) at 7.1
ticks made it 45-28, Delphos.
With an urgent need to get hot in a
hurry in a fourth or else see their season
come to an end, the Panthers didn’t
have the firepower to do so, shooting

4-of-12. The Wildcats again didn’t help
themselves at the line, shooting 2-of-8,
but their lead never fell below 15 as the
coaches gave their deeper reserves playing time down the stretch.
“We only lose one senior — Samantha
Meggison — but she means so much to
this team and these girls. She is a leader
and these girls respect her so much for
what she has meant to this program,”
Rhodes added. “We’ve come a long way
this season and we have a long way to
go from here on to next season.”
Paulding downed 17-of-42 shots
(1-of-5 long range) for 40.5 percent and
hit 4-of-6 at the line (66.7%); collected
41 rebounds (14 offensive) as Kaylen
Hale had six and Meggison five; and
added 18 fouls.
“It’s always nice to get the tournament jitters out of the way and get that
first win,” Hoffman added. “We got the
chance to get some of our younger girls
that don’t normally see the varsity floor
in there in their first tournament game.”
Jefferson finished 2-of-52 shooting
(0-of-6 downtown) for 38.5 percent;
with 31 rebounds (16 offensive) as sophomore Sarah Miller matched her gamehigh 13 markers with six boards; and
with 14 fouls.
Jefferson advances to a Saturday
night (6:15 p.m.) battle another NWC
colleague, Columbus Grove.

Vikings get revenge for PCL loss, oust Kalida girls
By Charlie Warnimont
Sentinel Sports Editor
news@delphosherald.com

FINDLAY — For a young
basketball team, playing
in the tournament can be a
tough learning experience.
Leipsic is a young team
that starts two juniors, two
sophomores and a freshman and will often have two
freshmen and two sophomores on the court at times
during games.
Despite their youth, the
Vikings were able to get off
to a good start. And when a
veteran Kalida team — six
seniors — rallied in the fourth
quarter, Leipsic’s youngsters
were able to hold on for a
43-39 win in a Division IV
sectional semifinal game at
Findlay High School.
The Vikings
(14-9)
advance to the sectional finals Saturday at 6:15
p.m. to face Wayne Trace at
Findlay. Kalida saw its season end at 16-6.
Leipsic got off to a solid
start playing good defense
and using their height advantage to get second chances
on the offensive end. The
Vikings jumped out to an 8-0
lead with six of the points
coming on second-chance

opportunities.
“That was one of the keys
we had on the board, was
rebounding,” Kalida coach
Adam Huber said. “They are
bigger than us and a couple
of weeks ago they beat us on
the boards. We said we had
to limit them to one shot. We
didn’t do that. To their credit
they came out and punched
us in the mouth right away
and we seemed a little timid
and it just kind of snowballed
from there.”
Kalida finally scored
with 5:15 showing on the
first-quarter clock on a steal
and layup by Brittany Kahle.
However, the Ladycats had
trouble getting going offensively as they scored just four
first quarter points as they
trailed 12-4 after a Kierra
Meyer basket in the closing
seconds of the quarter.
“We wanted to start
fast,” Leipsic coach Gary
Kreinbrink said. “Kalida
plays such good man-toman defense, especially on
the weakside. We knew they
were going to pack the paint.
We needed to get the ball
moving side to side, get some
touches inside and we were
able to get some points off
offensive rebounds. We talked about that all week, that

we had to get some offensive
rebounds because we hadn’t
been doing a good job of
that.”
For Kalida, things didn’t
get any better after the shaky
first quarter as they managed
to hit just one shot in the
second quarter, that coming
from Kylie Osterhage with
1:25 left in the half. Leipsic
also hit just one shot in the
quarter, but went 5-of-7 at the
free throw line to take a 19-6
halftime lead. The Ladycats
missed all three of their free
throw attempts in the quarter.
Shooting-wise in the
opening half, Kalida was
3-of-24 from the field and
Leipsic was 6-of-24.
“We’ve been there before,
having trouble shooting the
ball,” Huber said. “We hang
our hat on defense and they
guarded us pretty well, too. I
don’t know if it was tournament jitters or what we just
couldn’t put the ball in the
basket, for both teams.”
Leipsic opened the second
half much like they did the
first scoring four quick points
for a 23-6 lead. That’s when
Kalida started to show some
signs of life. The Ladycats
ended the quarter on a 15-7
run to find themselves down
30-21 after 24 minutes.

Kalida finished the quarter
with a 7-3 run that saw Joni
Kaufman hit the game’s only
3-pointer, while Kara Siefker
and Allison Recker both
grabbed offensive rebounds
and scored. Heitmeyer scored
a basket for Leipsic and
Mindy Ellerbrock had a free
throw.
Leipsic had a 10-point
lead in the fourth quarter at 33-23 after a Brooke
Gerdeman basket. That’s
when Kalida went on a
10-0 run to tie the game at
33-33 on two free throws by
Katelyn Siebeneck with 2:44
left. Although Kalida had the
momentum, they were never
able to take the lead as four
points by Meyer, three on
a 3-point play, pushed the
Leipsic lead to 37-33. Kalida
cut their deficit to one point
twice on baskets by Recker,
but the Vikings tried to keep
the ball in the hands of the
sophomore Meyer and she
responded by hitting 4-of-6
free throws, while Heather
Lammers, another sophomore, went 2 for 2 at the line.
“We are young, we had a
couple of freshman, a couple
of sophomores in there and
that’s not easy to do against
a team full of seniors,”
Kreinbrink said. “We just

DELPHOS

The
Midwest Athletic Conference
wrestling title was up for
grabs between St. John’s,
Parkway and Coldwater
Saturday morning/afternoon
at the Robert A. Arnzen
Gymnasium.
The fourth league team
with wrestling, Versailles,
was absent due to its appearance in this weekend’s
Division III State Duals Team
Championships.
Thus, it opened the door
for the Cavaliers — with their
full lineup of 14 weight classes — to take both duals easily
against the outnumbered Blue
Jays and Panthers.
Coldwater shut out the
Jays 78-0 and bested the
Panthers 75-6.
St.
John’s
downed
Parkway 42-30 in the other
dual.
“Coldwater is just a solid
team; with their numbers,
they are a great dual team
full of juniors and seniors.
They wrestle really hard and
know how to get kids where
they need to be,” St. John’s
head coach Derek Sterling
explained.
The two best matches of
that dual — with the hosts
forfeiting six weight classes — were at 152 pounds,
when Seth Obringer bested
Evyn Pohlman 71; and at 160,
where Grant Kaiser edged
Brett Vonderwell 4-2.
“They were both good
matches against two very
good opponents. Brett lost to
him a couple of weeks ago but
he’s getting closer,” Sterling
added. “Here’s hoping he can
keep improving and get him
in the post-season.
“You’re still looking for
fine-tune what your kids are
doing. We’re still making the
small — not major — mistakes; they end up piling up
into a major thing and it’s
costing us big matches. We
have a week until Sectionals
to try and fix them.”
Against Coldwater, the
only victor for Parkway was
Peyton Hamrick at 182, pinning Desmond Brown.
For fourth-year Parkway
head coach Kevin Browning,
it’s a continuing laying the
foundation.
“Our numbers are well up
from the past, which is good.
When you go up against a
team like Coldwater, with
their 30 kids, it shows how
numbers really matter,” he
said. “They are able to not
only have the foundation but
develop the program. They
are such a solid team with
those numbers. Though St.
John’s doesn’t have the numbers, they have been and
remain a solid team.
“We’ve come a long way
this year. For example, we
wrestled well in the Indian

Lake Duals and we held our
own against some Division I
and II programs. What we are
seeking is to be competitive
in all our matches and we are
getting there.”
Coldwater mentor Rob
Schmidt was pleased with his
team’s regular-season finale.
“We wanted to use these
matches as final tuneups for
Sectionals next week. We’ve
been wrestling well all season, a testament to a great
group of seniors a wrestlers
and leaders,” Schmidt added.
“We’ve basically only had
two disappointments. One
was last week, when we
came so close to advancing to the State Duals out
of Mechanicsburg but didn’t.
The second was at the LCC
Thunderbird Invitational; we
wanted to finish third, which
would have been great in a
41-team field, but we missed
third by three points and second by five.”
All three teams begin
the second season Friday at
LCC’s Division III Sectional.

Cougars celebrate Senior Night
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

VAN WERT — Injuries
are one thing that Ottoville
head boys basketball coach
Todd Turnwald has been trying to avoid in 2015-16, only
having 12 players in high
school.
His leading scorer, sophomore Logan Kemper, became
the latest casualty as he will
miss the rest of the season.
Van Wert was celebrating
Senior Night, with six playing
their final home game before
the crowd of the Cougars’
Den Monday night, and rode
that emotion to a 53-37 nonleague conquest.
Colin Smith led the way
with 22 markers, eight boards
and five steals, while fellow
senior Ryan McCracken
added 14 (4 treys).
Josh Braun (9 markers,
4 boards), Davis Munroe,
Gavin Ferckel and Gavin
Cross also had their home
finales.
“Obviously, missing our
leading scorer is tough for
us. That forces others to step
up,” Ottoville head coach
Todd Turnwald, whose team

is 3-18, explained. “What
hurts us is we have a lot of
young kids going up against
seniors and against Van Wert,
we have 40 boys against a
Division II team with 150
kids to choose from. They
are athletic. All I ask from
my kids is to compete as hard
as they can and they do every
time out; they are battling
out there. With our lack of
depth, we play 26-27 minutes
a night consistently but we
just can’t maintain it for 32
minutes.”
Van Wert head coach
Mark Bagley — with a 6-15
record — has had his share of
struggles in close games.
“The only thing is, we just
can’t seem to get the wins.
Outside of maybe twice this
year, I have not been disappointed with how we’ve
played but we play a brutal
non-league schedule in addition to the league,” Bagley
added. “This was not an easy
game, either; Ottoville really
played us tough despite being
without their top player.
“Our guys keep working hard and competing
every night and that’s due
to our seniors leading the
way. Colin has been one of

our go-to guys all year and
seemed to have the big play
when we needed it tonight.
He is going to play football at Division II Davenport
(Michigan), which shows his
competitiveness. I believe we
have a good chance to make
a run in the tournament with
our draw because of that type
of leadership.”
Two foul shots by sophomore Nick Moorman (16
points, 4 assists) at 6:36
gave the Big Green (3-18)
their only lead at 2-0. They
would not score again until
the 17-second mark on a
turnaround by senior Dustin
Trenkamp (7 counters, 8
caroms). In the meantime,
the Cougars (6-15) took the
lead for good on back-toback drives by Smith at 6:07
and 4:30 and his eight points
paced them in the stanza. His
steal and layin at 43 ticks
gave them an 11-2 edge
before Trenkamp’s basket
accounted for an 11-4 edge.
The Cougars slowly built
up their advantage in the second stanza, taking advantage
of five Ottoville turnovers
(16 for the game) and five
offensive rebounds. Despite
the Big Green shooting 4-of-

8, the hosts’ lead doubled
up their guests 26-13 on a
transition foul-line jumper
by Jacoby Kelly (8 counters,
3 dimes, 3 boards) at 1:05.
When Moorman banked in a
runner in the paint at 41 ticks,
the scoreboard read 26-15.
That late trend in the second period carried over into
the third stanza, with the
Gold and Yellow twice getting within four: 30-26 on a
Moorman drive at 3:32 and
33-29 on a 3-ball from the corner by Andy Schimmoeller at
2:02. However, McCracken
had the answer to that rally: a
bomb from the left corner at
1:18 and his off-balance layin
at 55 ticks; to put the Cougars
back up 38-29 entering the
fourth period.
Ottoville tried to get the
momentum back in the finale
but could only shoot 2-of9 as the Cougars ran more
time in their offense. Plus,
Van Wert finished strong,
shooting 7-of-11 as Smith
closed his home career with
an 8-point stanza. The lead
reached as high as 17 before
Bagley gave his seniors their
final bow before the appreciative Cougar partisans.

Lady Green closes with tight win over L-B
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
OTTOVILLE — Many coaches like
to schedule a tough season-ending basketball game to get ready for a long
tournament run.
That is why Ottoville mentor Dave
Kleman put a traditional power like
Liberty-Benton on the slate to finish the
2015-16 season Saturday afternoon at
L.W. Heckman Gymnasium.
The Lady Big Green took the lead
for good with 6:29 left and went on to
a 54-50 victory to finish the regular
season 20-2.
“It’s another great test before the
tournament. Liberty-Benton has a
solid program, they have good guards
and they are coming off two big wins
against state-ranked Carey and North
Baltimore,” Kleman began. “We knew
this wasn’t going to be a blowout but a
battle. It was a tournament-type atmosphere and there was a lot of intensity.
This was definitely a survival game.”
Lone Lady Green senior Nicole
Kramer landed a pair of threes in her
home finale.
The Lady Eagles (14-8) led 42-41
to commence the fourth period but the
Green and Gold’s Alexis Thorbahn (one
of four in double digits with 10) scored
on a putback at 7:41 to give them
the lead. Two free throws by Savanah
Richards (11 counters, 4 assists) gave
the Eagles the lead back at 6:44 but
Kramer buried a triple at 6:29 to give the
hosts the lead for good. The hosts then
held on — eventually forcing LibertyBenton to foul, with starters Jensen
Hiegel (14 counters, 4 rebounds) and
Richards eventually fouling out, and
also running some clock — and though
they never got a lead bigger than four, it
never fell below two the rest of the way.
The visitors got the lead just 20 ticks
in on a basket by Nicolette DeVincentis

(18 markers, 4 boards) but Thorbahn’s
bomb at 6:25 got the hosts the lead.
Hiegel’s foul shot and following trio
gave the guests the lead and they kept
it the rest of the period, leading by as
much as 15-9 on a DeVincentis bomb
— finishing her 9-point stanza — at
56 seconds. When Thorbahn drained a
3-ball with a tick left, that got the Green
within 15-12.
Ottoville kept chasing to open the
second period and passed their foe on a
trifecta by Mangas at 4:25. A basket by
Krista Simon tied it at 3:30 but the hosts
put together a 7-0 spurt in the next 1:20
— capped by a putback by Casandra
Kemper (10 counters, 7 rebounds) at
2:00 — for a 26-19 edge. Hiegel hit a
transition floater in the lane at 1:03 to
make the halftime scoreboard 26-21.
The Eagles came out in the third
period with an aggressive mindset and
began to get the Big Green in some foul
trouble, especially Thorbahn, Landin
and Madison Knodell. They took advantage in shooting an almost perfect 6-of-7
from the field and 8-of-9 at the line.
(15-of-22 total for 68.2%). The Big
Green kept up at the line, hitting 9-of-10
(a superb 17-of-21 total for 81.0%), but
could only hit 3-of-7 fielders. Landin’s
two foul shots finished off her 6-point
stanza and gave the hosts a 41-40 edge
at 34.7 ticks but DeVincentis ended her
7-point period with two singles at 27.5
ticks to give Liberty-Benton that 42-41
lead.
Both teams dropped in 16-of-35 shots
(Ottoville’s 5-of-16 downtown to L-B’s
3-of-8) for 45.7 percent.
Liberty-Benton took in 20 boards (5
offensive), turned it over 11 times and
had 13 fouls.
Ottoville snapped up 23 caroms (5
offensive) and added 11 miscues and
18 fouls.
“We didn’t play our best game, especially defensively. We gave up way too
much penetration — which we knew

was what they were going to do — that
we normally don’t,” Kleman added.
“We executed the game plan about 50
percent of the time and that is usually
not going to win a lot of games; it seems
we had three girls doing the right thing
and two not. We weren’t on the same
page and we have to address that this
week.”
In junior varsity action, Ottoville
took a 47-29 victory.
Kasey Knippen led the conquerors
with 12 and Haley Hoersten 11.
Abby Reynolds was high scorer for
the Eagles with 11.
Ottoville takes on Continental 6:15
p.m. Wednesday in Division IV action
at Findlay High School.

to play with intensity. We
have to create havoc off our
defense — the only other
way is to have our role players shoot 55-60 percent and
that’s difficult for anyone. I
take the blame for us not
being ready and I guarantee you it will be corrected
Monday.”
Delphos downed 17-of-42
shots, 7-of-20 beyond the arc,
for 40.5 percent; grabbed 21
rebounds (6 offensive); and
added 14 fouls.
“That is the first time we
used that defense for the
whole game all year. We
aren’t the only team to do
that against Jefferson; force
their role players to beat
us,” Thompson explained.
“Offensively, we want to get
into transition but we want to
be smart with it. I don’t want
us to be quick with the attack
— I like one ball reversal
before we attack the rim. We
also have no problem running
sets — we have sets up the
ying yang. We’re starting to
get smarter with our offense.”
Elida captured 27 off the
glass (6 offensive) as Donte
Johnson (11 counters) added
five; and had 14 fouls.
In junior varsity action
Jefferson overcame a 46-41
fourth-period deficit to take a
60-56 victory.
Alex Rode topped the
Wildcats with 15 and Drake
Schmitt 14.
Calan Henderson led the
Bulldogs with 19 and Trevor
Hooker added 15, both with
five 3-pointers.
Both teams are on the road
in league play Friday to close
the regular season: Jefferson
at Allen East (NWC) and
Elida at Bath (WBL).

Bath washes out
Blue Jay boys in OT

DELPHOS — After dropping a Midwest Athletic Conference
game on the road Friday, St. John’s hosted the Bath Wildcats to
wrap up its final double-weekend of the season.
Bath outscored St. John’s 4-2 in overtime to win 54-52.
With the score knotted at 50 at the end of regulation, the
Jays struck first as freshman Jared Wurst nailed the turnaround
jumper on the inbounds play. Bath missed a golden opportunity
to take control of the game with five free attempts in the opening minutes of overtime but converted only one to trail 52-51
with 1:42 remaining. The Wildcats took the lead 15 seconds
later when junior Kaden Sullivan sank both charity tosses in
the double-bonus. The Jays made a costly turnover as they
tried to move the ball across the center line against Bath’s fullcourt pressure and were forced to foul. Sullivan made 1-of-2
to put the visitors ahead by two with 34 ticks left. After a timeout by St. John’s, they got the matchup they wanted: 6-8 Tim
Kreeger inside the paint. Bath’s Dylan Burkholder made the
stop of the night, swatting away Kreeger’s game-tying attempt.
The Jays got one final chance when the Wildcats turned the
ball over with 4.4 seconds left. Having to go the length of the
floor, St. John’s executed the inbounds play perfectly but Ryan
Hellman’s 40-footer at the buzzer fell off the rim.
The first quarter was back and forth as the hosts’ Robby
Saine opened with a triple. Bath attacked the inside with spin
moves to the rack in converting their first four attempts from
the field. Kreeger scored seven points in the first quarter, only
to see the Jays trail 13-12.
Bath opened up a 5-point lead as the second stanza began
but Saine brought the Jays back with his second bomb. As the
Jays’ defense collapsed close to the rim to shut down Bath’s
inside game, the Wildcats began to hit from outside to open a
27-18 lead. Owen Rode hit from beyond the arc for the Jays
but Bath’s Cam Clark answered with a 3-ball to keep the lead
at nine. After a free throw by Kreeger, Bath’s Burkholder
grabbed an offensive board and his putback beat the buzzer for
a 32-22 lead for the Wildcats at the half.
The St. John’s offense found its range in the third with
Collin Will hitting twice from long range and Saine adding
another triple. Wurst added to the comeback with a baseline
jumper and Saine remained zoned in with a NBA-length
3-ball, pulling them within one at 37-36. The Blue Jays finally
caught the Wildcats with 3:00 left in the third on a free throw
by Connor Hulihan and took the lead on the high-low combination of Hellman to Kreeger for the layin. Bath tied the game
at 40 as the quarter ended on a spin move for two by Andrew
Renner.
St. John’s went on a 7-0 scoring run to open the final eight
minutes with a pair of buckets by Rode along with three points
by Kreeger. The Wildcats’ offense clawed back, reducing the
Jays’ lead to three with 4:41 remaining. Under pressure, senior
Hellman calmly sank a pair of charity tosses, extending the
Jays’ lead to a handful. Bath outscored St. John’s 6-0, eventually taking a 50-49 lead with 1:41 showing on the Robert
A. Arnzen Gymnasium clock. Kreeger’s free throw knotted
the battle at 50-50 as Bath ran out the regulation time with an
unsuccessful last shot.
“Our defensive philosophy didn’t change tonight during the
course of the game,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer explained.
“We just did a better job executing our game plan in the second
half.”
Bath scored 13 points in the first quarter and 19 in the second shooting 63 percent from the floor.
More aggressive defense by St. John’s in the second half
cooled Bath to 38 percent, scoring only 18 points in regulation
after intermission. The Wildcats scored all their points in overtime from the charity stripe for the victory.
“I’m proud of our guys as they fought back from 10 points
down. We haven’t been in that situation before where we got
the lead back and couldn’t hang on. It’s tough to learn from a
loss but hopefully if the situation arises again, we’ll know what
to do,” Elwer added.
The Blue Jays (7-13) were led in scoring by Kreeger with
18 points. Saine hit four of their seven 3-pointers for 12 points.
St. John’s made 40 percent of its attempts from the floor and
were 11-of-22 from the line.
The Wildcats also had two players in double digits:
Burkholder (11) and Chase Clark (10); and made 14-of-25 of
their charity tosses.
On the glass, St. John’s outrebounded the Wildcats 27-19.
In junior varsity action, Bath exploded for 23 points in the
final quarter to pull away with a 62-48 victory.
Zac States led the ‘Cats with 13 points and Curtis Schwinnen
scored 18 for the Jays.
The Blue Jays will wrap up their regular season Friday night
with Senior Night as they host Parkway in a MAC matchup.
Bath hosts Elida in the WBL.

Siefker receives NWO Pharmacists Assoc. Scholarship
Information submitted
ADA — Shayla Siefker, a fifth-year
Ohio Northern University pharmacy
student from Ottoville, was named the
Northwest Ohio Pharmacists Association
(NWOPA) Scholarship award-winner
for the 2015-16 academic year.
NWOPA officials presented Siefker
with a $750 scholarship award at an
awards ceremony in Lima on Jan. 28.
Students were evaluated on several metrics, and judges blindly selected the winner from a pool of nine other finalists.
“I am very thankful to be chosen
as the NWOPA scholarship recipient,”

Siefker said. “I enjoyed meeting the
pharmacists in NWOPA, and I am very
appreciative of the generous award I
received from them. The scholarship
money will be put toward my pharmacy
education.”
“Shayla works multiple part-time
jobs to help pay for school while participating in numerous organizations on
campus. Her work ethic, both in and
out of the classroom, is very admirable. She deserves this award, and we
know it will be put to good use as she
pursues her career in the field of pharmacy,” Dr. Patricia Parteleno, direc-

tor of experiential education at Ohio
Northern University’s Raabe College of
Pharmacy, said.
Siefker was recognized as a NCAA
All-Academic in cross-country at Ohio
Northern during her freshman year
and she was on the dean’s list during
the 2014-15 academic year. Siefker is
a 2017 PharmD candidate who will
begin her Advanced Pharmacy Practice
Experiences (APPEs) rotations this summer. She seeks to match into a residency
program in hospital or ambulatory care
after graduating from the pharmacy college at Ohio Northern University.

“I see skies of blue and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day and the dark sacred
night,
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world”
Artist: Louis Armstrong (1901-1971)
Song: “What a Wonderful World” 1968
& 1988
Louis Armstrong, one of the “great ones”,
was a trumpeter, singer, composer, and
most certainly an entertainer. The charismatic Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo” and
“Pops” enjoyed legend status in the world of
Jazz for fifty plus years”.
Should you ever need a little tune to wash
away the blues, this one delivers. The song,
“What a Wonderful World”, from the start,
is dripping with optimism, cheerleads the
mindset of gratitude, and if you let it, can even
make you cry.
The primary reason the song works so well
is of course the presence of the man singing, the gravely voice, his warm emotional
energy just pouring into the song. The great
“Satchmo”, the story has it, recorded the song
for union scale ($250) to ensure that the rest
of the orchestra got paid. (songfacts.com)
Recorded in the late twilight of his career,
the song did not make the Top 100 here at
home in 1968. More airplay in that day might
have helped some as 68 in America was
upside down. (Vietnam War, Civil unrest,

and practice space. Always
be on the lookout for cheaper options and set up a network either by email or social
media where there’s a free
flow of spending tips and discounts that might come in
handy. As for lessons, try the
classroom approach. If your
child wants to improve in a
sport, work with other parents
to hire an instructor who will
do group lessons that will
assure a lower cost per family.
Bottom line: Even if your
child doesn’t grow up with
the natural skill of a Manning
brother or a Williams sister, it’s possible to introducing them to youth athletics
without ruining your family
finances.

right coverage. Some health
insurers may sell special
sports coverage for minors,
but if your child is playing
an organized sport within a
school system or league, they
may have their own insurance requirements before they
allow your child to play. There
may be other coverage options
as well –run those options
by your qualified financial
experts or fellow parents who
are insuring their children
against sports injuries.
• Buy used. Whether it’s
equipment or uniforms, see
if there are safe options to
buy used. Auction sites may
provide some solutions while
many communities known for
particular sports may have
used equipment stores that
can cut your bills extensively.
If your child isn’t destined for
the pros, buying used makes
a lot of sense – why buy full
price if at some point their
interest wanes?
• Buy multiple sizes and
neutral colors and styles. If
you’ve got a growing child
who is likely to maintain
interest in a particular sport
over several seasons, stock
up on clothing in different
sizes and go for neutral colors
and styles that allow for gender-neutral hand-me-downs.
• Negotiate shared transportation and group fees
when possible. Again, in partnership with other parents
or your school system, see
if there are cheaper ways to
travel, buy gear and find play

Confused about your
Medicare Options?

BY NATHANIEL SILLIN
Most parents put countless
miles on the car driving kids
back and forth from various
practices and games throughout elementary and secondary
school.
As for the actual dollars
behind all that driving and
purchasing of uniforms,
equipment, lessons and various activity fees, the numbers are pretty eye-opening. A
2014 study by the Utah State
University’s Families in Sport
Lab (http://www.usufamiliesinsportlab.com) shows that
the average annual family
financial investment in youth
sports came out to $2,292.42,
or 1.84 percent of that family’s gross annual income.
Other research done within the program indicates that
many parents spend much
more – some in excess of
10 percent of gross annual
income.
Whether that figure sounds
low or high depends on your
child’s chosen sport and the
number of years your child
participates in it.
Whether your child’s interest in sports is temporary or
a long-term commitment, it’s
not only important to plan and
budget what you’re spending
but to find ways to save. Here
are some steps to begin:
• Link up with other parents. Whether it’s after-school
or weekend soccer, hockey or
baseball, your first source of
intelligence is with parents
who already have kids playing the sport. Discuss everything from the best program
for your child overall to individual costs and fees associated with play – and don’t forget to ask them how they’ve
kept their budget in line.
• Schedule for the best discounts. Don’t miss any opportunities for sales on merchandise or discounts on training
and activity fees. Paying early
on merchandise, sports camp
or pre-season activity fees can
save significant money over
time. Above all, avoid late
registration fees on all sports
and activities.
• Make sure your child’s
health insurance is adequate.
Depending on what sport
your child plays, you may end
up buying additional coverage beyond what your family health insurance allows. It
takes virtually no time for a
night or two in the hospital to
run into tens of thousands of
dollars, so take every step to
make sure your child has the
