Sylvania Recreation hosted Mavericks Tournament July 4 weekend
By Christine A. Holliday Herald Writer It wouldn’t have been the 4th of July without baseball, and there was plenty of it scheduled in Sylvania this past weekend. The 4-day Mavericks tournament provided plenty of competition for U-9 to U-14 teams, and was a great way for their families and friends to enjoy the holiday weekend. From 9:30 a.m. Friday until late Monday afternoon, 53 teams from as far south as the Columbus area took to the fields at Pacesetter Park and Northview and Southview High Schools to battle for bragging rights in one of what Sylvania Recreation Services Manager Mike McMahon called “one of the showcase tournaments” offered by the agency. For the U-12 Mavericks team, it was a warm-up for their trip to Cooperstown, NY and participation in their summer tournament. They and their coaches will spend a week in the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, where McMahon says they are treated “like major league baseball players.” They live in By Christine A. Holliday Herald Writer doing yard work, selling magazines and popcorn, all activities that built teamwork as well as building the group’s treasury. He explained his support for the program, “I grew up playing Little League like many other parents who have kids in the Maverick organization. The game offers a positive environment for our kids and provides so many life lessons. From a sponsorship standpoint, I can’t think of a better event to have my business linked with than little league baseball. One of the most enjoyable parts of being an agent with State Farm is working with families in our community and protecting the things they cherish. I enjoy the relationships we build and watching the kids grow up before our eyes.” The Mavericks tournament is a great way that Sylvania can show off the Pacesetter facilities, and McMahon notes that the visiting teams will spend their off-hours at local venues, including Mud Hens games. “We are proud to bring these teams to the area, and we’re glad they take advantage of what there is to do in northwest Ohio.”

Northview hockey program alum earns “perfect internship”
Many high school administrators (principals, superintendents, school board administrators, and athletic directors) receive copies of High School Today magazine eight times each year. The magazine, the official publication of the National Federation of State High School Associations (the high school equivalent of the NCAA), calls itself “The Voice of Education-Based Athletic and Fine Arts Activities” and addresses a variety of concerns related to high school students. Readers can find professional development articles, feature stories about athletes and artists, and serious pieces about sportsmanship, education funding, and other topics important to those working with high school students. The September, 2011 issue will have a decidedly local angle. Sylvania resident

He says the boys appreciated the trip even more because they had helped to raise funds for it though car washes,
Columbia Gas of Ohio and the City of Sylvania are partnering to help residents use less water. In response to a Sylvania City Council resolution asking residents to restrict water usage, Columbia Gas will distribute 1,000 energy efficient showerheads on Monday, July 18, at the Sylvania Branch Library, 6749 Monroe St., Sylvania, from noon to 5 p.m. The showerheads are free and are available to Columbia Gas of Ohio customers.

a 2011 NFS Hall of Fame inductee) and a third about a Kentucky high school tennis player who made it to the State championship after losing an arm to cancer. He is the first intern from Ohio (past interns have usually been chosen from Indiana schools such as Indiana University or Butler University) and will be responsible for a variety of tasks. Reynolds will manage online content such as the National High School Record Book, write and send press releases to different state associations, and help out with day-to-day media tasks with state associations. It’s a job he’s been working toward his entire life, although he didn’t always know it. He was a 4-year hockey player at Northview High School, after an elementary school career in the Sylvania hockey system. He had always been interested in writing, and was encouraged (“heckled” he says) by his mother to take the introductory journalism class to improve his writing. He credits teacher Ms. Sarah Huey with pushing him in the classroom, saying, “She was one of the few high school teachers I had who was able to relate so well to her students. There is a reason all her publications students over the years come back to visit her….She knew how to make everything fun, but always emphasized that dedication to the work must come first.” Reynolds took that class his junior year, and found the field was something he could see himself pursuing. He remembers, “Once I realized all of this, my specialization toward sports writing began to take shape…After my junior year, I was named co-
sports editor, and that made me like the field even more. Combining my interests in writing and sports only seems appropriate. The decision to attend Ohio University was almost a no-brainer. I knew they had an acclaimed journalism program, and I just figured if I like it now, why not pursue it in college?” After three years working in intercollegiate athletics, he is leaning toward a career in sports media relations and publicity. He says he has learned that it takes a dedicated person to succeed in such a field where the people don’t necessarily always get the credit they deserve. “Sure,” he notes, “some of the work is stressful and at times it may seem overwhelming, but if you have a vested interest in something, the end result of doing work you enjoy ultimately outweighs any of the negatives.” He continues, “In high school, I loved writing about Northview sports and even adding in the occasional column here and there. With writing, it’s not even worth putting the pen to paper unless you’re passionate about the topic you’re writing about, and I’ve taken that to heart through my time thus far at OU.” In this new writing opportunity, he is still writing about Northview sports, posting this Facebook message for his former Northview teammates, “Got to update the National High School Sports Record book today at work. All Northview people, be proud to know that according to the book, Coach Coop’s 585 wins ranks 7th on the national all-time hockey list. Pretty cool.” Reynolds also calls his parents’ support “cool,” explaining, “As for my parents…My mother (Jennifer Boney-Reynolds) always stressed the importance of literacy and communication from a young age, so she basically laid the necessary foundation for me to grow and expand as a student as I matured. At the same time, my dad (Joe Reynolds) has supported me in anything that I’ve ever pursued, whether it be in sports or school. I am very lucky! I’ve had great preparation for a great summer internship experience.”

‘Conservation Corps Improves Sylvania’
Have you noticed some of the many improvements being made to the community this summer by the City of Sylvania Youth Conservation Corps? The seventeen junior high students are planting thousands of flowers and making improvements at public parks and building grounds, all while learning new skills and building confidence for their futures. Their work for 2011 will end with a family picnic and ceremony at Harroun Park on Saturday, July 16th. Improving our quality of life is important for all of us, and the Sylvania Youth Conservation Corps works toward that goal in multiple ways. First are the plantings and improvements made to our parks and the grounds surrounding our public buildings.

The Youth Conservation Corps is a program unique to the City of Sylvania and benefits our most important community asset – our young people.
Members of the Sylvania Conservation Corps were planting flowers at the Sylvania School District Administration Building on June 29. The flowers were grown by horticulture program students at Southview High School, Sylvania. Rich Fredricks, the instructor for the Southview horticulture class, was also on hand to transport the plants to the site and to help the students with the landscaping duties. The program is part of the city’s Parks and Forestry division and has been in existence for 19 years. There are 18
children participating this year in the four-week long program. The students also plant flowers at the Courthouse, Southview High School, Pacesetter Park and other locations. The Corps is made of 7th and 8th-grade students who must live in Sylvania to participate. Students are paid for their work but half of all wages are required to go into a savings plan to teach the students the importance and value of financial planning. The city’s annual River Ball Race is the traditional end of this Sylvania tradition.

Sylvania Gymnasts “Rock the Gym” at YMCA National Gymnastics Championships
by Scott Grau Herald Sports Editor Given the exorbitant cost of traveling these days, the families and friends of the young gymnasts from the Sylvania community that competed in this year’s YMCA national gymnastics championships got a little relief in their wallets and posteriors since they did not have worry about such things as fuel, food, lodging and endless hours of riding in a car to make it to the event venue. Instead the 21 local athletes ranging in various ages and skill levels competing for the local YMCA Gymcats girls team and the Y’s Guys boys team simply traveled 20 minutes or so east to downtown Toledo for the opportunity to tumble and flip with approximately 1,700 other gymnasts representing 99 YMCA branches from 18 states across the country. And best of all they could go home at the end of the day and sleep in their own beds. The YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo hosted its 4th National Gymnastics Championships on June 22 through June 25 at the SeaGate Convention Centre. Previous tournaments were staged in 1992, 1996, and most recently in 2001. This was the 46th annual national tournament. According to Jim Wheaton, the National Director of Events for the YMCA of the USA, the fact that Toledo has successfully hosted several national meets in the past was a big advantage in being selected for this year’s meet. “What Toledo brought to the table was not only the local Y having [hosted the meet] before but the local Convention and Visitors Bureau and the community at large basically coming together and rallying around the Y and saying ‘hey this is a significant enough of an event that we want it to be here and we’ll do want it takes to get it here.’ Their bid was very proactive in bringing us to town.” said Wheaton. Upwards of 8,000 people were expected to have visited the Toledo metropolitan area during the duration of the tournament. According to Destination Toledo, Inc, the regional convention and visitors bureau, the economic boost for the area was estimated to be $6.5 million. Casey Koenig, the director of the gymnastics program for the local YMCA branches, and her team had a year to organize the tournament. Normally a host city receives approximately 18 months to two years to prepare for the event but due to a change in the bidding process, the Toledo association had to make it happen in 12 months. Last year the tournament was held in San Diego, California. Partnering with the Toledo Mud Hens, the Greater Toledo YMCA kicked off the four-day event with opening ceremonies of the tournament at Fifth Third Field on June 22. All of the teams marched on the field in an Olympic-style parade of athletes prior to the start of the Mud Hens’ game against the Columbus Clippers. Peter Vidmar, the highest scoring American gymnast in Olympic history and the current Chairman of the Board of USA Gymnastics, was the keynote speaker. An attempt at setting a new Guinness Book of World Records for the longest group handstand fell short but the sight of over 1,500 boys and girls standing upside-down on their hands in the outfield was impressive. The ceremonies concluded with a street fair and fireworks after the baseball game. For the first two days of competition, the cavernous SeaGate Centre was configured with four separate gym layouts. Competition of all skill levels were conducted simultaneously which at times appeared as organized chaos. On the final day of the meet a single gym layout was erected so that the gymnasts and spectators alike could concentrate on a single event without distraction. In the girl’s meet, gymnast must compete in the floor exercise and on the vault, beam, and uneven bar apparatuses. Their individual scores for each event are then combined into a cumulative all-around score. Awards are given for each individual event as well as the all-around. The boy’s meet follows the same scoring format but the gymnasts must compete on the pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bar as well as the floor exercise. Girls and boys from local elementary through high school participated in the championships. Even though all of the gymnasts live in the Sylvania community they practice and compete at the Gymnastics Center at the Super Sport Zone, an auxiliary facility

The Sylvania Mavericks U12 Baseball Team won the Ohio Select Division State baseball tournament recently. It proved to be the best team of the 63 teams entered in the tournament. The Sylvania-area boys only allowed 11 runs in seven games and upset the #1 seed. Team officials believe that this is the first such championship in the Mavericks Baseball history. The team went 7-0 and had to win four games and ending by beating a physically superior team (good thing it wasn’t footballl!). We were the LAST team standing out of the 63 teams entered. It was a great and memorable weekend! These boys represented Sylvania, their

More than 3,000 Sylvaniaarea residents packed Centennial Terrace on Friday, June 24, to attend the annual Disco Night event. Several participants dressed in period disco wear. Tickets were sold out long before the show. Duane Horst, who has volunteered with the fund-raiser for the Make-AWish Foundation from the first event 16 years ago, said it takes a full year to plan and 100 volunteers to run the event. $1 of every ticket goes to the charity said Kelly Wallington, another volunteer with the event. Wallington also noted that each year, more and more people dress for the event. If you weren’t there -- it’s probably because your Volkswagon Thing or AMC Pacer wouldn’t start.
