Speedway Opens CNG Facility In Findlay

11/3/14 – 8:14 A.M.

It appears Findlay is becoming a destination for Compressed Natural Gas fueling facilities. Roughly a month-and-a-half after CNG Fuel Inc. opened a fueling station on Distrubution Drive on Findlay’s north side, Speedway has followed suit. The company’s second compressed natural gas facility is located at the Speedway store on County Road 99, just off of I-75.

A release from Speedway says one of the store’s fuel lanes is now dedicated to CNG. The company has partnered with IGS CNG Services to help run the compressed natural gas operation.

Bluffton Council Disagrees On Water Tower Maintenance Issue

9/4/14 – 5:25 A.M.

There was plenty of disagreement over a water tower maintenance program at last night’s Bluffton Village Council meeting. The Courier reports the issue began when council member Roger Warren said he didn’t agree with a contact proposal for water tower work. The proposal had been been talked about at a recent Utilities Committee meeting. Warren said he wanted to know why more bids weren’t being sought.

Councilman Everett Collier said that Warren was out of order since he isn’t a member of the Utilities Committee.

Before that, Warren had requested an executive session, but it was voted down. That upset Councilman Sean Burrell, who said any council member should be able to request an executive session.

In the end, council agreed to seek more maintenance proposals from other companies that can service water towers.

Allen County Teen Pleads Guilty To Planning Attack At Middle School

8/12/14 – 6:49 A.M.

A 13-year-old Allen County boy has entered the equivalent of a guilty plea to charges stemming from a school threat. The Lima News reports the boy, who has not been named, was charged with two counts of possession of a deadly weapon in a school safety zone. He’ll be sentenced at a later date.

The teen had planned to kill the principal and assistant principal at Elida Middle School. Investigators say he also planned to attack anyone else who approached him. The boy brought three knives and a box cutter to school, but ended up admitting his plan to the principal instead of carrying out the assault.

College Baseball: Findlay High grad Orwick pitching well for Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Findlay High School’s Jimmy Orwick is already making an impact as a freshman for the University of Notre Dame’s baseball team this season.
The left-handed pitcher leads the Fighting Irish (6-9) with 10 appearances, all of them in relief, and has a 6.23 ERA.
In 41/3 innings pitched, he has allowed three earned runs on five hits. He’s walked four batters, struck-out three and hit two batters.
Orwick’s best outing came in Notre Dame’s 2-1 loss to UCLA. He pitched 12/3 scoreless innings of relief, had a strikeout and threw eight strikes in his 11 pitches.

Yost hitting .308 at B-W
BEREA — Baldwin Wallace University senior Jay Yost, a Hopewell-Loudon graduate, is making the most of his appearances at the plate for the Yellow Jackets.
Yost, who usually plays second or third base, is batting .308 (4 for 13) in his four games for Baldwin Wallace (4-3). All of his hits are singles, and he has scored a run as well.
He went 1 for 3 in each of his last two games (Tuesday’s 4-2 loss to Montclair State and Sunday’s 8-0 win over Salem State). Yost also went 2 for 4 with a run scored in the Yellow Jackets’ first game against Transylvania in a double-header on March 1, in which they won both games 8-5.

Watson off to solid start
TIFFIN — North Baltimore’s Jordan Watson’s first season as a pitcher for Heidelberg University is off to a good start, much like the Student Princes’ start to the season.
In his four appearances, the 6-foot-1 right-handed freshman has a 3.38 ERA and four strikeouts in eight innings pitched for Heidelberg, which is 8-2 and on an eight-game winning streak.
Watson also recorded a save in Saturday’s 14-4 win over Olivet in Fort Myers, Fla., in which he pitched three innings, allowed an earned run on three hits, and struck out three batters.

Prep Hoops: Princeton’s Mitchell is Ohio’s Ms. Basketball

AP Sports Writer
COLUMBUS — Kelsey Mitchell, a unanimous choice as the 27th annual Associated Press Ms. Basketball winner, stands out from the crowd.
Except for team and family photos, that is.
Kelsey, a 5-foot-8 senior from state-bound Cincinnati Princeton High School, is a twin. And they are just one of two sets of twins in the immediate family.

So while some might marvel over her unique moves on the court, others wonder about her relationship with her 5-11 sister Chelsea, a Princeton star who is also joining her at Ohio State next year.
“We’re two relatively different people,” Kelsey said. “We do our own things, but then again she is one my best friends. So we talk about a lot of things together, but she’s so different from me. She very outgoing.”
Kelsey’s play speaks volumes, however.
She’s a do-everything guard who averages 24.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 4.1 steals a game for a team that is 26-2 heading into Friday night’s Division I state semifinal against Toledo Notre Dame (24-3).
“She does it all. She can get to the basket, she can shoot the 3, she finds open people and plays great defense,” said her coach, Jill Phillips.
What most amazes Phillips is that Kelsey’s motor is always running even if her mouth isn’t.
“I guess the thing is that she never takes a play off,” Phillips said. “Practice, game — there’s never a time when she’s not giving 100 percent.”
Kelsey is a McDonald’s All American who doesn’t let her ego get in the way of the No. 1 objective, winning.
Asked what she does best on the court, the student with a 3.76 grade-point average hesitated for a second.
“Best? I think I distribute the ball well,” she said. “Lately I’ve been averaging a lot of assists. My teammates have been making big-time shots in big-time games, so I’m more than happy to distribute the ball to them.”
Beware, opponents. That doesn’t mean you can slack off on guarding her.
The lefty shot 35 percent on 3-pointers this season. In the regional semifinal against defending state champion Kettering Fairmont, she piled up 50 points.
Funny, but there’s a debate whether the best girls player in the state is even the best player in her family.
First, Chelsea can play, a three-star prospect who’s a double-figure scorer on the state’s No. 1 team in the final AP regular-season poll.
Second and third, well, there are brothers Cameron and Kevin who play for Indiana University Southeast. The Grenadiers have a 25-4 record and are in the NAIA playoffs.
“My brothers are one of the reasons that I am the player that I am today,” Kelsey said. “They’re great basketball players, so they made me better.”
Kelsey and Chelsea will be playing on their future home court at Value City Arena when they play in the state tournament. As might be expected, it’s been an exciting week around Princeton, with tickets up for grabs, people making travel plans and everyone anticipating the Vikings’ big moment in the spotlight.
“I’m very excited. I’m happy that our team has made progress to get to state and I’m just honored to be there,” Kelsey said. “We’re just honored to be there.”
Ms. Basketball is determined in voting by a state panel of sports writers and broadcasters.
Past winners include Katie Smith, the leading scorer in professional women’s basketball history, along with two-time winner Ameryst Alston, now at Ohio State, and past Cincinnati-area standouts Kendall Hackney (Mount Notre Dame, 2009), Amber Gray (Lakota West, 2008), Mel Thomas (Mount Notre Dame, 2004), Michelle Munoz (Mason, 2000-01), Carol Madsen (Reading, 1989) and Janet Haneberg (Seton, the inaugural winner in 1988).
Other finalists for this year’s award included Reynoldsburg’s Alyssa Rice, Clyde’s Amanda Cahill, Kristen Confroy of Solon, Reedsville Eastern’s Jenna Burdette, Laina Snyder of Millersburg West Holmes and Cortland Lakeview’s Alli Pavlik.

Clarion’s Kristin Day won the event with 504.1 points.
Findlay sophomore Jessica Ward will compete in the 100 backstroke on Friday and the 200 backstroke on Saturday.
NCAA opening matches
CLEVELAND — First round matchups are set as the University of Findlay wrestlers begin competition at the NCAA Division II wrestling championships Friday at Cleveland’s Public Hall.
UF senior Adam Walters will be gunning for his third All-American award in the 174-pound weight class. A 2012 NCAA runner-up, Walters (28-3) will open the tournament against St. Cloud State’s Clayton Jennissen (24-13).
Senior 125-pounder Ben Sergent (19-6) will be making his third NCAA tournament appearance and is seeking his first All-American award this weekend as he opens against Minnesota State-Moorhead’s Blake Bosch (21-12).
UF 149-pounder Dalton Nicely (14-22) will take on Central Missouri’s Frank Cagnina (36-2) while Bradley Metz (29-13) wrestles West Liberty State’s Mike Emery (16-6) in his first-round bout at 165 pounds.

College basketball: Lewis nets career-high 20 as UF women win

Kelsey Lewis turned in the most impressive performance of her career Saturday afternoon, and yet, the University of Findlay sophomore forward was as modest as could be about it.
She had just carved up Tiffin for a career-high 20 points, hitting all eight of her shots from the field, and the effort was more than enough to help the Oilers roll to an 81-59 win over the Dragons at Croy Gymnasium.
But all that mattered to Lewis was that the Oilers won, snapping a three-game losing streak and breathing a bit of life into their hopes of reaching the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament.
“I care more about how the team does,” Lewis said. “We wanted to win today and I thought we played really well as a team. It was great to get the win.”
While Lewis wouldn’t bask in the spotlight, UF head coach Jim Wiedie was more than happy to play up the performance by Lewis, whose previous career-high was 10 points.
“I don’t know what Kelsey did last night to get ready for this game, but I told her whatever it was, just keep doing it,” Wiedie said. “She has been playing so well, and what a way for her to step up. It’s a huge confidence booster for her.”
Lewis only scored six points in the first half, helping stake UF (10-11, 7-10 GLIAC) to a 36-30 advantage, but she established herself in the paint in the second half and the Dragons struggled to stop her.
Lewis scored on a layup that put UF up 51-38 and her layup with 11:05 remaining put the Oilers in front 59-45.
A jumper by Lewis pushed the UF lead to 63-47 and a strong move to the basket with 7:38 left put the Oilers up 67-49 over the Dragons (7-13, 4-12 GLIAC).
“The team did a great job of finding me open,” Lewis said. “We did a good job of moving the ball around today and were able to make shots.”
UF, which has struggled with consistency, shot 51.6 percent (32 of 62) from the field and Karli Beasley also reached double figures with 12 points.
Beasley hit two treys and also grabbed four rebounds. Margaret Wuebker and Karli Bonar scored eight points apiece.
The Oilers also stepped up on defense, forcing 25 turnovers and scoring 22 points off those miscues while holding the Dragons to 38.3 percent (18 of 47) shooting from the field.
Jillian Adams led Tiffin with 11 points.
“It’s the most complete game we played all year,” Wiedie said. “This was the team I expected since day one.”
It was tight early, but once Lacey Kessler drove in for a layup and hit a free throw to put the Oilers in front 7-5, UF never trailed again.
A layup by Beasley extended the lead to double digits at 18-8 with 9:41 left and the Oilers led 21-10 after a 3-pointer by Bonar.
The Oilers will seek to avenge an earlier loss on Thursday when they take on rival and defending NCAA Division II national champion Ashland (13-8, 11-6) at 5:30 p.m. at Kates Gymnasium. The Eagles beat the Oilers 80-55 last month at Croy.
