Admiral’s Pointe Honors a Dedicated Volunteer & friend.
Too often we underestimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a Life around. Emil “Buddy” Sperling was a humble man who dedicated the last almost 11 years to Admiral’s Pointe. He was a very much loved and respected volunteer, friend, mentor to the residents, staff, & families. Buddy called Admiral’s Pointe home not only the in past but also as a resident where he was surrounded with love as he made his final journey to be with Lord on September 15th. The joy of Lord was his source of strength & his main choice. Buddy gave of himself his whole life. He served in the Army from 1943 to 1945. He was present at Normandy on D-day. He received Army medals for his service, was in the 66th Division, Black Panthers. Buddy gave God all the credit for getting him through the war. He served with honor. Buddy spent his years after the war caring for his family, his wife Mary Ellen who is was married to for 51 years, and his three children. Lisa Hudson, Activity Director states, “Buddy gave us the greatest gift of all, his time.” He came faithfully five days a week, five hours a day, then later cut back to three days a week. He gave way over 10,000 hours of volunteer time. His gift of time was priceless. He gave everyone he came in contact with generosity, understanding, empathy, compassion, patience, & most of all love. Service with love was his priority; he had a smile & a hug for everyone. He positively impacted the lives of everyone around him. A great loss is felt at Admiral’s Pointe, everyone there is like family & everyone who walks through their doors is a part of their caring loving atmosphere. Just like Buddy who never knew a stranger, where everyone is a friend. Buddy’s favorite saying & verse was …love thy neighbor as thyself… Admiral’s Pointe staff hold that in their hearts as they deliver the care to each resident and truly make a difference. Please come to Admiral’s Pointe on October 1st at 10:00am to honor Emil “Buddy” Sperling in a memorial service held in the main dining room. Refreshments will be served.

Bar North to Host Fundraiser for United Way
On Tuesday, October 2 from 6-8 PM, area residents will have the opportunity to sample some great wines, taste some scrumptious hors d’ouevres, and help the United Way. This unique fundraiser, sponsored by Bar North Bistro and the Huron Hometown News, will benefit the programs of the United Way of Erie County. Specifically, the money raised will be used to support the work of the United Way in the areas of children and youth services, basic and emergency needs, and independence and self-sufficiency.

The United Way fundraiser will feature six wines that are individually paired with an appetizer created by the chefs at Bar North Bistro. If you have not been to Bar North Bistro in a while, the United Way fundraiser is good opportunity to check out all of the improvements that the restaurant has recently made. Bar North’s new motto is “Real food, real fresh”. Executive Chef Will Skinner and Sous Chef Alicia Lake have worked to incorporate as many local products into their menu as possible. Currently, they use produce from Hahn Farm, Chef ’s Garden, and the restaurant’s own garden. Chefs Skinner and Lake strive to offer homemade, creative, upscale food at reasonable prices, but also offer great burgers, wings, and handcut fries. Chef Will stated “I want to change people’s vision and the way they think about food in the area. I want to show people that you can enjoy upscale and local food at Bar North in an inexpensive way and also show how important it is to buy produce from local farmers, go to local restaurants, and support everything local.” One of the best features of the restaurant is their large patio that overlooks the 18th green and contains a large fire pit. Bar North recently expanded the patio which now seats over 80 people. Bar North offers specials throughout the week including their popular Burger Night on Thursdays. Not only are regular burgers available, but the chefs have created an impressive menu with 10 specialty burgers including The Italian with mortadella, mozzarella, pesto, and truffle mayonnaise. Tickets for the United Way fundraiser at Bar North are $20 per person and are available at Bar North, the United Way office in Sandusky, the Huron Hometown News office, and at the door. Plan to attend the fundraiser to enjoy good wine, good food, and good company all for a good cause.

‘Chamber of Commerce Day’ For 16th Billman Golf Outing
In tourist towns, when they speak of a Chamber of Commerce day, they are referring to one with absolutely perfect weather. It was truly a “Chamber of Commerce Day,” on Wednesday, Sept. 12, for the Huron Chamber’s 16th annual Don Billman Memorial Golf Classic. The outing, held this year at Sawmill Creek Golf Club, is a tribute to Billman who served as the group’s treasurer for nearly two decades prior to his death in 1996. While no one was able to sink a hole-in-one on Hole #7 and earn a 2013 Chevy Malibu from Foster Chevrolet/Cadillac, the teams had great fun attempting to “Beat The Kid. Kurt Anderson, an award winning young golfer, took them on to see who could shoot the longest drive on Hole #17. Let’s just say that the Chamber was the real winner in this contest. The Medalist Management team, from Gahanna, OH, capCapturing second place with a score of 60, was the New Sandusky Fish Co. team, comprised of Bill and Billy Haggerty, Shawn Bahnsen and Brian Sowards. The Hallmark Cleaners took third place, with a team score of 63 posted by Jeff Gnidovec, Joe Blodgett, Blake McGory and Gary Hay. . Proximity winners included: Jim Barnum, longest putt on Hole #4; Brian Martin, closest to the pin, second shot on #5; Ron Brown with the longest putt on #16. Fred Fox took home two proximity prizes for hitting his ball closest to the pin on the third shot at #12 and having the longest drive on #15.

Letter to the editor I wish to preface my remarks because in all good conscience I no longer can remain silent concerning the debacle created by three elected members of the Huron City Schools Board of Education. The humili- Huron Hometown news | Thursday, September 20, 2012
ation that their collective decisions have caused our citizenry is unacceptable. The KKK has had its own sense of justice, primarily lynching without due process with extreme prejustice. Our community is witnessing a current-day lynching in the form of three of the elected members of the Huron Board of Education: Tim Sowecke, Donna Hastings-Green, and Scott Slocum, board president. I attended the Board’s special meeting Thursday, Sept. 6. To say that I was stunned is an understatement. After Mr. Fox’s attorney discredited every one of the alleged allegations levied against Mr. Fox, the Board led by Slocum announced that the Board would go into executive session. Board member Mr. Caporini objected stating that whatever had to be discussed should be in an open, public forum. (Kudos to Mr. Caporini) Per the pattern of the past year, the bloc of three—Sowecke, HastingsGreen, and Slocum denied that action and went into executive session. Upon returning to the public forum, Mr. Caporini made a motion to drop all alleged charges against Mr. Fox and to reinstate him as superintendent of the Huron City Schools. Again, the bloc of three—Sowecke, HastingsGreen, and Slocum defeated the motion. At that point Sowecke read a lengthy legally-prepared motion to suspend Mr. Fox without pay or benefits and to proceed with his dismissal. The pattern has remained consistent with this now infamous “Bloc of Three”, and the lynching continues to play out. Soweke, GreenHastings and Slocum voted in favor of the motion with Mr. Asher and Mr. Caporini voting no. Before ending the meeting Tim Sowecke publicly stated the he is proud of what has been accomplished. As a resident, a taxpayer, a small business owner in Huron, and a former educator I cannot express just how much I am ashamed and embarrassed at the actions of these three who were elected to move our school system forward with the best interest of the students and citizens of Huron paramount. From the very beginning, the handling of this matter was cloaked in conspiracy. Purportedly, an unidentified “whistle-blower” (to use Sowecke’s words) brought concerns about Mr. Fox to him. To this day, Mr. Fox does not know who his accuser or accusers are. The Board’s responsibility at this point was to bring Mr. Fox before the board and discuss the matter with him in a civil manner. This did not happen. Mr. Fox was not brought before the board until much later after Attorney Markling had done an incomplete “investigation” of the situation. Key people were never interviewed: neither Mr. Fox, Mr. Weis, treasurer, nor Mr. Nelson from Kalahari. In fact, this law firm was never legally hired by the board. Sowecke took it upon himself to hand-deliver the Markling findings to the State of Ohio Board of Ethics, clearly a breach of his entrustment as a school board elected official. After learning that this process could take up to two years to make a ruling, a swifter route was taken. And this is where the citizens of Huron find themselves today—divided, disappointed and in despair for the community and most importantly, the students in our school system—a system the Mr. Fox brought from the brink of bankruptcy to being fiscally sound, student achievement the highest in recent years, and the physical buildings upgraded to fit the needs of the student body and faculty. FYI: Mr. Fox has not had a professional review/assessment since 2010, a review that was stellar; now he is not fit to maintain his job. Absurd! Judy & Mike Tann

Jabez Wright: Huron’s Connection to the Underground Railroad

Nuclear Labyrinth on the Great Lakes Conference

Oct. 4 - 6, 2012

Huron can take pride in having been the home of an amazing pioneer, civic leader, and integral figure in the antislavery movement, Jabez Wright. Wright came from New York to the Firelands with Almon Ruggles in 1809. Wright and Ruggles had been hired to survey the area of the Connecticut Western Reserve that became known as the Firelands. This land was to be distributed as compensation to those who experienced a significant loss of property during the Revolutionary War. Wright apparently liked the area and settled on the west bank of the Huron River about 2.5 miles from the shores of Lake Erie, in ron Township. On May 11, 1811, he married Tamar Ruggles, niece of Almon Ruggles, and together they had five children: Winthrop, Douglass, Lucy, Abigail, and Ruggles. Around 1815, Wright relocated to a large parcel of land located on the north side of what is today known as Cleveland Road, West, just east of Rye Beach Road. On this property around 1822, Wright built the first brick house in Huron Township. This impressive home contained eight rooms and a basement. Wright was instrumental in the development of the Firelands region, and according to his obituary, he was “universally esteemed”. Further, the 1874 Combined Atlas Map of Erie County states that Wright was “a good citizen, an exemplary Christian, and an enterprising pioneer.” As featuring Gordon Edwards, President, evidence of his good charCanadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility acter and civic responsibility, Wright was elected as Thursday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. one of the first two county commissioners for the Village of Cleveland and, in 1815, was elected as one of the first three associate judges for the Court of Common Pleas in Huron - Free & Open to the Public County (Erie County was For details, go to carved out of part of Hu-

ron County in 1838). Wright also was elected to serve as Justice of the Peace for Huron Township. In 1820, Wright lost his bid for Ohio State Representative, but in 1823 he was elected to the position of Ohio State Senator for the Ashtabula District, which included Cuyahoga, Geauga, Portage, Huron, Medina, and Sandusky counties. Wright served in this capacity for two terms from 1822-1825. In 1836, he was nominated as the Whig party’s candidate for Representative for the 14th Congressional District, a position which Wright did not obtain. Wright also worked as a surveyor, land agent, and farmer. In addition to his public service, Wright’s exceptional character was also evident in the fact that he was one of the first residents of Firelands and the state of Ohio to aid fugitive slaves. Wright risked his reputation and financial well-being to do what was morally right, though in violation of state and federal statutes. His large home served as a regular station or depot on the Underground Railroad. Beneath Wright’s farmhouse was a 16-foot wide and 90-foot long tunnel. Fugitive slaves entered the passage through a trap door in the home’s basement and exited into a corn crib located about 100 feet from Lake Erie. There, these families and individuals awaited the arrival of rowboats that would transport them to vessels headed to Canada and, subsequently, freedom. Alternately, after resting at Wright’s home, the slaves would make their way to Sandusky or Detroit to await a ship headed to Canada. In a speech before the Firelands Historical Society in 1888, Honorable Rush R. Sloane described Jabez Wright as follows: “He never failed when opportunity offered to lend a helping hand to the fugitives, secreting them when necessary, feeding them when they were hungry, clothing them and employing them.” Wright died on December 16, 1840 at the age of 61. According to an account of his death, he “left his house early in the evening of the 16th December, with the intention of transacting some business in the village, and going out in front of his house for the purpose of getting down to the beach, he fell from the bank, and struck his head against some timber in a crib erected in front of his residence, a distance of eighty feet. He apparently made every effort to regain the bank, having succeeded in finding his way to the place where his family would usually go down to the lake for water-but the coldness of the night and the loss of blood paralyzed his efforts. His lifeless body was washed off by the waves and floated opposite the village, where it was found on the morning of the 17th.” Following the death of Jabez Wright, his sons, Winthrop and Douglass, continued the work of their father in aiding slaves in their bid for freedom. It is unknown as to how many fugitive slaves found refuge in the home of Jabez Wright, but his name should forever be remembered for his many acts of kindness.

Emil ‘Buddy’ Sperling
July 22, 1924-Sept. 15, 2012 Emil “Buddy” Sperling, 88, of Huron, died Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012, at Admiral’s Pointe Nursing & Rehab, Huron. “I served with pride” was the motto written upon Emil “Buddy” Sperling’s hat. This World War II Veteran embodied this quote until his final days. Born in Cleveland, on July 22, 1924, Buddy was God’s gift to the world. After losing his mother at an early age, he had to quit school and get a job. Buddy’s job as a grocery deliverer allowed him to meet the love of his life, Mary Ellen. They wed in 1942 and soon after Buddy enlisted in the United States Army serving from 1943 to 1945. He was present at Normandy on D-day and fought a path that took him from Omaha Beach through Paris and on to Germany. Emil was once lucky enough to meet up with his older brother Norman, who also served during the war, in London. By the time Buddy was discharged, he was decorated with three Bronze Stars, a Good Conduct Medal, and a World War II Victory Medal. In his later years he was seldom seen without his World War II Veteran’s cap worn proudly on his head. After completing his service to our country, Buddy began his service to his family and friends. He created and nurtured a beautiful family consisting of his wife and three children, Jimmy, Bobby, and Barbara Ann. But when need arose, he also cared for his wife’s grandmother, her mother, his father, and while his son served in the Navy during the Viet Nam War, his daughter-inlaw and baby granddaughter. A man of humble means, Emil always opened his heart and home to those in need. After a lifetime in Cleveland, Emil and Mary Ellen retired and found a new home in Huron. They embedded themselves in a supportive neighborhood on River Road where his brother Norman and sister-in-law Marie lived along the Huron River. Fishing was a favorite pastime. The untimely passing of Mary Ellen (Pinnow) his wife of 51 years, left a void in Buddy’s life. This opening was filled by Lou Ella Herb, with whom he kept company for ten loving years until her passing. The Sandusky Church of the Nazarene became his home and the heart of his spiritual life. In Emil’s final act of service, he began volunteering at Admiral’s Pointe Nursing Home. Buddy would volunteer three days a week for five hours a day. Every day began with a quick visit to every resident telling them, “I love you and the God loves you too.” Buddy logged more than 10,000 hours of volunteer time while at Admiral’s Point which fittingly became his final home. The kindness showed Buddy and his family during his final days will always be remembered. Many have been blessed by his love and compassion. Emil “Buddy” Sperling will always be remembered for his service - service to his country, family, and anyone who needed a kind word or loving embrace. He is survived by his children, James Howard of Cleveland, Robert Allen (Joyce) of Yucaipa, Calif., Barbara Israel (Richard) of Cleveland Heights; grandchildren, Sandra, Erin, Russell, and Amanda; and seven great-grandchildren; all of whom will miss him greatly. Family and friends are invited to join us for a Home Going Service at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Sandusky Community Church of the Nazarene, 1617 Milan Road, Sandusky, Pastor David Flack presiding. Donations can be made in Buddy’s name to either the Sandusky Church of the Nazarene, or Stein Hospice Services, 1200 Sycamore Line, Sandusky OH 44870. Foster Funeral Home & Crematory, Huron, is handling the arrangements. Condolences may be shared at

United Way of Erie County to Seek Small Business Support During “Blitz”
The Blitz engages support from small businesses in Erie County for the local United Way campaign to benefit humanservice efforts. “We traditionally have support of larger businesses, which run employee campaigns, as well as from many individuals,” said United Way of Erie County executive director Pamela Brumbaugh. “The Small Business Blitz is a great way to give smaller businesses the opportunity to learn more about how they can help United Way meet community needs.” On Sept. 25, volunteers from United Way will be visiting and calling on small businesses, both in and around the downtown areas of Sandusky and Huron. Many of the volunteers will be representatives from 22 “Funded Partners” that receive local United Way support. The Small Business Blitz is sponsored by: The Sandusky Register, BAS Broadcasting, WLKR, and Buckeye Cable. The volunteers will provide information about United Way and ask for a pledge or donation. Pledges of $100 or more will be eligible to win one of four media packages, donated by the sponsors. The packages are valued between $300 and $500.. “We are pleased that The Sandusky Register, BAS Broadcasting, WLKR, and Buckeye Cable are again partnering with us on the Small Business Blitz,” said Brumbaugh. “Last year, the businesses told us that the chance to win prizes encouraged them to donate. But the most important reason to donate is the increased need in the community for health and human services.” Last year 50 small businesses made their donations on that day. United Way of Erie County has set a goal of $750,000 for its campaign this year. With economic conditions in our community, the need for the services supported by United Way is greater than ever. Early bird pledges and online donations for the Small Business Blitz are also welcome. All gifts received by the day of the Blitz will be included in the prizes. Information about community needs and programs supported by United Way is available at Donations can also be made from that secure website. There is no minimum or maximum pledge. Donations of any size will help United Way of Erie County reach its goal and help meet community needs during the coming year. United Way of Erie County appreciates the support of our local businesses as we work together to advance the common good in our community. If you have any questions or would like to make your pledge, please call the United Way of ErieCounty. For additional information or to make a donation over the phone, call419.625.4672.

Sandusky Ski Club Celebrated 50 Years
The Sandusky Ski Club celebrated 50 years of “going downhill” on April 14, 2012 with a dinner-dance at the Sandusky Yacht Club with 174 current and past members present. The program featured 3 former Presidents. Paul Goszyk (1965-66) who is still a ski instructor at Snowtrails near Mansfield at 91 years young. Don “Tiger” Lifer (1969-70), who resides and skis in Aspen, Colorado. Walter Schaufler (1970-71), who resides in Castalia and along with his wife Trude, are the longest continuous club members at 47 years. Also in the program was a re-enactment by 6 of the original 23 members that danced the Charleston at Sandusky’s Sesquicentennial in 1968. The “Top 10 Record Holders” of continuous membership in the club were recognized: the Schauflers, Bonnie & Dick Wuertz, Phyllis Wassner, Ann Portteus, Nancy & Al Meyer, and Barbara & David Stoldt. There was a display showing the evolution of ski equipment and ski clothes during the 50 years of the club’s existence. The Sandusky Ski Club continues to be active in the community by volunteering for Serving Our Seniors’ events, fund raising to support charities such as Safe Harbour Women’s Shelter and the Special Olympics. The Club has been selecting a Ski Queen since 1966, one of the longest traditions. The founders of the Sandusky Ski Club were really in on the “early runs” of skiing in America. Vail Ski Resort in Colorado was also founded in 1962 and will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary during the 2012/2013 ski season. The Sandusky Ski Club will be taking part in that celebration in February 2013 for a week of fun filled skiing and boarding. To get in on this and other ski trips and club information as we head into our 51st year, visit the web site

Jumping Ahead To Their Future
EHOVE offers a work-based learning program called Summer JumpStart to help students get an early start and real world experience in a career and build a résumé by working in their field the summer before senior year. Engineering Tech student Dominic Jones (Edison HS) was able to work at NASA for his Summer Jumpstart job. “EHOVE strengthened my AutoCAD skills, which helped me out with my internship at NASA,” said Jones. “It was a great experience.” Health Tech student Kala Shingledecker (Bellevue HS) worked her Summer Jumpstart job at Providence Care Center. “I was able to help elders perform day to day living,” said Shingledecker. “The internship went great! I enjoyed getting to know the residents and helping them out throughout their day. I earned my STNA through EHOVE, which was a big help in performing the skills I needed for my internship.” Culinary Arts Curtis Saunders (Norwalk HS) had a great opportunity to gain experience at the Culinary Vegetable Institute in Milan, as he works toward his goal of opening his own restaurant someday. “EHOVE helped me with my know-how of how kitchen equipment works and everything else I needed to know to do well for my internship,” said Saunders. “My favorite part was the food show and seeing the Trump Tower and the 16 restaurant pastry chefs that were there as well.” Before embarking on their new worksite experiences, many of the students attended a workshop at Common Ground in Oberlin. They utilized interactive, experiential “challenge” exercises to explore and learn about the role of interpersonal relationships and effective problem solving in the workplace. “Students learned to work with all kinds of kids to help them get ready for the workforce by using teambuilding skills,” said Heather Horowitz, Community Partnership Coordinator at EHOVE, who organized the event and assists EHOVE students with finding the right work-based learning opportunities. “What a fun learning experience.” EHOVE Career Center is a leading career tech school in Milan Township. This high school and adult education facility draws students from a variety of locales, and serves multiple school districts in Erie, Huron and Ottawa Counties. Students are given the opportunity to take challenging academic classes in a customized and relevant curriculum, and gain hands-on training and real world experience to prepare them for college, a specific career, or the military. For more information, go to or call 419499-4663 x232.

Shawnee Students Learn About Safety
The students of Shawnee Elementary School were taught safety tips, crime prevention, values and responsibility by some very special people last week. The Officer Phil Safety Program was launched for the students in kindergarten through the second grade. The Officer Phil program achieves its program objectives using education through entertainment methods, which has successfully taught millions of children nationally over the past 30 years. Huron City Schools Resource Officer Keith Lobsinger, along with a professional animator, Mr. Michael, preOfficer Keith Lobsinger introducing Cosmo to the students at Shawnee Elementary School last week during the Officer Phil Safety Program. sented a live program featuring animated characters. Mr. Mike used magic; ventriloquism and technology, often in combination to entertain yet educate the students. The program was designed to build and strengthen relationships with authority figures such as parents, educators and police. The Officer Phil Program was brought to the students of Shawnee by the Huron Police Department and donations from the Huron community funded this important safety program. For more information regarding academic happenings in the Huron City School District log on to: www.

Schoology Introduced at Huron
Schoology has been introduced to the students and staff of Huron City Schools as a method of interaction while enhancing the education process. Schoology is a technological resource offered on a secured platform that both students and teachers can educationally interact together similar to other social networking sites. It is one system that allows the users to participate in information sharing while completing tasks such as posting assignments, turning in assignments, recording grades, offering online tests & quizzes with immediate scoring, maintaining calendars, emailing and communicating with one another in a secure atmosphere. “It is like Facebook for school,” described in unison by seniors Dylan Recard and Jonathon Turner of Ms. Jennifer Telenko’s Forensic Science Class. For senior Aaron Morris, his favorite part of Schoology is Remind 101. Remind 101 is a feature of Schoology where the teacher is able to text the students as a class, a reminder about an upcoming test, quiz or homework assignment that may be due. “Education today is to build success and to make sure the work is completed,” stated TJ Houston, Director of Technology for Huron City Schools. The teachers do not have access to student phone numbers it is all completed electronically through the Schoology programming, explained Houston. For other students and teachers it is the after school hours access they have to their classrooms. They are able to ask questions and provide assistance if needed. The education process does not necessarily have to stop at 2:30 pm when the bell rings, explains Houston. Students come alive through Schoology. They have many choices when they do not understand their homework…. they can choose not to do it, ask parents or inquire through Schoology. Students tend to open up and show interest in learning when using Schoology, explained Ms. Telenko. Huron students have been using Google docs for some time now. Google docs have allowed the students to log into a school account to access their work at school or anywhere off-site. Schoology enables the students to sync their Google docs account to access their files directly from within Schoology or drop the files into the “Dropbox” and submit them as an assignment. The Schoology technology is free to Huron City Schools. Currently over 20,000 school districts across the country are using Schoology. For more information regarding Huron City Schools, log on to: www.huronhs. com

Technology Advancements Generate Re-gifting Program
The Huron City Schools is pleased to announce there are several overhead projectors in good working order available to any individual or local group/organization that may have a need for them. With the increased use of Smart Board technology, teachers are finding the overhead projector has become obsolete. Over the past several years the District has been very proactive in providing the educational tools to the students and teaching staff by providing the technology and equipment to prepare for the twentyfirst century. The Smart Board technology in the classrooms has helped to deliver information while enhancing the learning experience. Last year Ms. Deanna Schumm, District Media Specialist, was able to “re-gift” over a dozen projectors to North Point Educational Service Center and several to smaller area groups. Also included in this year’s re-gifting opportunity is a typewriter from one of the school offices that is in good condition. Interested groups and organizations should contact Deanna Schumm at [email protected] for additional information on the overhead/typewriter regifting project.

Huron High School XC Continues to Shatter Personal Records
The Huron Cross Country teams competed at the Galion Cross Country Festival this past Saturday. Both teams were swarmed with personal bests, leading the Women to a 14th place finish, and the Men 26th. The record setting began with Seniors Alex Wisehart (25:35) and Hannah Smith (27:25) who competed fiercely to achieve their season and personal bests by several minutes. Leading the Women’s Varsity Squad, as she has all season, was determined Sophomore Madi Mize, who finished 18th place with a PR (personal record) of 20:07. Next across the line, battling through an injured-ridden season, was the ever-tough Senior Morgan Mize who stepped up for her team with a 79th place finish in 22:31. Sophomore Alison Litz continues to bump up her position on Varsity, this time placing 93rd and seconds away from her PR at 22:47. Junior Katy Evers fought bravely through injury to place 105th (23:12), alongside her teammate Freshman Abbey Black (106th), with another PR in 23:13. Senior Kayla Hamilton finished 148th (25:23). The young women of this team, those who competed and those waiting for their turn on sidelines, have amazing potential this year and in the years to come. The Men’s team was once again led by Junior Kevin Tomczyk, who placed 35th in the Varsity race with a time of 17:01. Striding in next and looking the strongest he has all season was Brennan Cockrell who came in 81st with a PR of 17:55. Sophomore Sean Martin also had a huge PR, finishing 159th in 19:28, followed by Senior Jake Ramey, who battled through injury for a 166th place finish in 19:42. Freshman Jacob Fries ran to another PR as well, coming in 189th in 21:30. This Men’s team keeps throwing Photo by Mike toMczyk. down best performances week after week. The teams will compete in the Ontario Invitational Saturday. Good Luck Kevin Tomczyk battles for position at the Galion Running Tigers! Invite.

Varsity Volleyball Program Notches 600th Victory
On Saturday, the 2012 Huron Varsity Volleyball team pushed the program to its 600th win at home against an outstanding team from Avon Lake. The Tigers came out strong taking the first two games, 25-22 and 25-21. However Avon Lake displayed the poise of a regional finalist in Division I last year and bounced right back to take the next two games. Huron, led by the aggressive, balanced attacking of Hannah Cantrill (14 kills), Kat Ferrell (13 kills), and Hadley Sterett (13 kills), won the tie breaker, 1510. Sydney Grendow led the home team with a flawless 27 assists. Meanwhile, on defense, front line blocks by Madi Orzech, Piper Miedema, Megan McCarthy, and Hannah Cantrill helped keep the strong Avon Lake team in check. The ever athletic Sydney Bragg led the Tigers with 26 digs while the latest recruit of NCAA Division I Appalachian State, Kat Ferrell, contributed 21 digs.

Tigers Stop Fliers 14-7
There is unlikely to be a bigger game in SBC play this year than the conference opener for both Huron and Clyde. The two pre-season favorites of both the coaches and media polls faced off in Clyde last week. Over the past decade, the Fliers have dominated play, but on Friday, a well balanced Tiger attack proved too much for Clyde. Huron’s offense seemed to control the first half of play despite only scoring just 14 points. But the real story was the way the Tiger defense clamped down on Clyde’s offense making any more points unnecessary. Junior QB Cody Thompson threw for 265 yards with one touchdown to go with his 77 yards on the ground. Senior Aaron Driftmyer had four catches for 110 as well as a 43 yard punt return for a touchdown. Give Clyde’s defense credit, they held the Tigers scoreless through out the second half of the game.

Above: Nick Mix catches three passes for 46 yards in Huron’s win over Clyde. Below: WR Aaron Driftmyer scampers 43 yards on a punt return for the second of the Tiger’s touchdowns.
