At an August 19 meeting, the Rossford Board of Education voted 4-1 to approve the contract. Superintendent Dan Creps said the contract–which runs from September 1, 2013 to August 31, 2016–grants no raise this year, a 1 percent increase next year and a 1.5 percent increase the following year. The contract does allow “step raises” to continue for additional education and longevity, he said. Board member Jackie Brown voted against the con- tract, citing her concern about the school district’s tight budget. Noting the annual loss of $1.5 million due to property values declining, she would prefer that a one-year contract was negotiated. “I would love to give everyone a raise,” she said. “But right now, I don’t think our district can afford it. My concern is the staff we could lose because of the things in this contract.” Board member Doug Miller described the contract as “a good result” of sincere participation and discussion among school staff. The contract also has been approved by the Rossford Association of Classroom Teachers (RACT). “Through trusted collaboration and the interest-based bargaining process, we have agreed to a fair contract that continues to offer a positive work environment while providing the best possible service and education to our students,” Mr. Creps said, reading a statement also supported by RACT president Steve Doughten, a junior high teacher. Board member Beverly Koch thanked RACT members “for working with us so cooperatively for a good conclusion.” Mr. Creps said the new agreement requires employees to pay more in health care premiums–currently 10 percent, which will increase to 12.5 percent this year and then 15 percent for the next two years. Teachers also will pay more for doctor visits and prescriptions, he added. About 140 teachers are covered by the contract. Personnel Issues The school board took the following action on personnel issues: •Approved the employment of classified personnel– Lori Krieger, library/clinic aide at Indian Hills Elementary, four hours per day, $16 per hour; Juanita Westdyk, cafeteria/playground aide at Indian Hills, two and one half hours per day, $13.90 per hour, both effective August 20, 2013. •Accepted the resignations of Shauna Hunter, jun- ior high cheerleader advisor, and Kelly Clarson, junior high cross country, for 201314. •Issued supplemental contracts to Kathryn Grinonneau, Michael Krieger, Eric Nycz, Alison Salmon, Heather Traxler, Pat Biniker, Kathy Herman, Sue Swartz, Briana Rothbard, Kelly Clarson, Kim Linenkugel, Stephen Doughten, all intervention assistance team; Kellie Hawk, Katy Grinonneau, Kathy Herman, Brooke Mershon, Kristen Vargo, Wendy Hilty, homebound tutors; Kathy Herman and Laura Feldkamp, mentors; Katherine Brassell, student council advisor; Stephen Please turn to page 4➧ Mike Scott resigns from council to join NWSD board By Beth Church Headed to the Northwestern Water and Sewer District, Mike Scott resigned his position on Rossford City Council Monday evening, effective August 31. “The last four years have been very rewarding–and sometimes frustrating,” he said, but still encouraged more residents to become involved in the community. Even before the NWSD board position became available, the councilman had discussed with his family the idea of not seeking re-election. “This is a very good way for me to still work with the community,” he said. Mr. Scott thanked his fellow council members, and especially noted the service of City Administrator Ed Ciecka, describing him as “a true treasure for this community.” “He does an outstanding job–it’s been a real pleasure working with all of you and Rossford City Council thanked Mr. Scott for his service to the city. From left are Council President Larry Oberdorf, Mayor Neil MacKinnon III, and Councilman Scott with his mother-in-law Steffie Verbosky, brother-in-law and former mayor Bill Verbosky and son Michael Scott. especially Ed,” the councilman said. Council members responded with praise for Councilman Scott’s service to the city. “You’ve brought so much to the table and had such an impact,” Council President Larry Oberdorf said. Councilman Greg Marquette agreed, “Thanks to Mike, for your time and your professionalism.” Council President Oberdorf and Mayor Neil MacKinnon III presented a plaque to the councilman who has served as chair of both the economic development and marina committees. “You have been an outstanding colleague,” the mayor said, describing him as “a good friend and a big brother.” Council member Caroline Zuchowski Eckel thanked Mr. Scott for his work on the ad hoc TARTA committee, chairing the Rossford Convention and Visitors Bureau board and leading the planning committee for the recent Chautauqua program. He was a founding member of the Northern Wood County Port Authority and served eight years as chairman. He also was a long-time board member of the Rossford Board of Zoning Appeals, from 1992 to 2007. “He went above and beyond to get stuff done for this community,” Mrs. Eckel said. Mr. Scott told council he has the support of seven municipalities in NWSD to be appointed to the board. Rex Huffman, attorney for the NWSD board, told council “your loss is the district’s gain.” He noted that several years ago, when the city was deciding whether to join the district, council members were concerned about having a voice on the NWSD board. Now as Mr. Scott joins the board, which also includes former councilman Leonard Michaels, “you will have two really strong voices,” Mr. Huffman added. “I look forward to working with you,” he said.

By Michael Krieger The 2013 varsity football team at Rossford High School has considerable momentum after last season’s tenacious effort. According to fourth year head coach Todd Drusback, the 2012 season was one of the most inspiring seasons he has experienced. Last year, the Bulldogs gained a measure of success–after several seasons of futility–by posting a 6-4 mark and the first winning season since 2007’s team earned a trip to the state playoffs. The season was an emotional one, especially for a large group of seniors still stinging—yet inspired—by the passing of teammate with the coaching staff and ultimately, the team’s confidence has improved. “They now feel like they can win; it’s a different mindset,” Drusback said. He can’t help but look ahead positively to the start of the season, which kicks off this Friday, August 30 at home against Bowling Green. That will be a special evening for Bulldog football. The RHS Class of 1993 will celebrate their 20th reunion. Players from that team (1992 season) are invited to join current Bulldogs standing on the sideline during the game. Two Rossford alums, and two of the school’s most impacting football players from the Class of ’93–Christopher Bulldogs look to contend on the gridiron after emotional season Kerry Keller, who lost a yearlong battle with cancer. “Last year moved us in the right direction,” Drusback said. “The seniors had a very emotional season, and they rode that emotion for the whole year.” The true accomplishment for the Bulldogs is that they now believe in themselves and are coming into the new season with confidence and heart–both qualities learned from last year’s squad. Despite losing several key contributors to graduation, the Bulldogs still believe that they are ready to compete for an Northern Buckeye Conference title this year. In fact, Drusback believes in his team’s goals of winning the conference and hoping for a birth in the state playoffs are realistic. “It depends on how our young guys respond. They are talented guys, but they lack some game experience,” he explained. The coach also believes that the young Bulldogs are about a year away from being a consistent contender in the NBC. The new crop of Bulldog seniors have demonstrated a strong work ethic, and all of them will play a significant role in the team’s continued resurgence. Now that the players are in their fourth season of Drusback’s system, the coach has seen improvements in team chemistry. Players are building better relationships Holifield and Robert Owens–will address the team prior to the game. Coach Drusback believes it is important for his studentathletes to connect with the Rossford legacy of football success. “I always ask [the team], ‘how are you going to be remembered? Did you make the most of your opportunities while you were here?’” he added. Several seniors will hold the key to success this season. Aaron Kolbe returns to anchor the defense from the nose guard position. Returning seniors on the offensive line–Nolan Duly and Josh Maas–should be able to open plenty of holes for the skills set players like seniors Dylan Losiewicz and sophomore Erik Davis. Junior John Allen and sophomore Kyle Sherman seem ready to initially share the quarterbacking duties, according to Drusback. In addition to swinging passes to Losiewicz, who plays a hybrid running back and wide receiver position, seniors Noah Asmus and A.J. Santellana should catch passes at the wide out positions in the Bulldogs’ up tempo offense. If the Bulldogs can continue to build on the accomplishments of the 2012 team, perhaps, they will secure their own spot in the Rossford legacy as the team continues to “Kerry On,” paving the way for a bright future. The Northwestern Water and Sewer District soon will replace an existing 12-inch public water line along River Road. The project extends from Eagle Point Road in Rossford to East Boundary Street in Perrysburg, affecting many residents in Rossford and Perrysburg Township. Construction will begin in mid to late September and continue through next spring, according to John Sopko, NWSD project manager. It is “part of an on-going effort by the district to improve water quality, service to your property and increase fire protection,” he said. Water service interruption may occur during construction, but affected residents will be notified. Local traffic to residents’ homes will be maintained. Buckeye Excavating will perform construction on behalf of NWSD, but an NWSD inspector will be on site at all times. The following neighborhoods will be affected by the water line project. Stonecroft Drive Existing 4-inch service line and 8-inch main that goes down Stonecroft will be temporarily out of service leaving everyone without water. St. Luke’s services has a 6-inch water line which will be out of service while it is being switched to the new water main. Rockledge Drive Existing 6-inch water main will leave about a dozen homes without water service while it is being switched to the new 12-inch. The existing 6-inch water main along Secor Woods will be out of service while switched over to the new 12inch. This will leave all of the residents along Secor Woods Lane without water, about 13 homes Rockledge Drive and Hufford Road Along Rockledge, the existing 6-inch water main will be temporarily out of service, leaving 10 homes out of service while it is being switched. Existing 6-inch water main along Hufford will be out of service while it is switched. This will leave about 10 homes without water for a short period of time. Ford Road and Turnpike Underpass While construction is occurring under the turnpike, temporarily traffic signals will be needed because traffic will be down to one lane. The existing 12-inch water main along Ford will put several residents along Ford between White and River roads out of service while it is switched to the new line. Duxbury Lane The existing 8-inch water main that follows Duxbury will be temporarily out of service while it is reconnected to the new 12-inch line along River Road. This will leave all residents along Duxbury without service since it is not a looped system. Shelbourne Road, Hamlet Commons, Somerset Road The existing 8-inch water main along Shelbourne will be out of water service as it is reconnected to the new main. This will put about seven Please turn to page 3➧ GARBAGE COLLECTION Garbage, recycling and yard waste in Rossford will be collected by Waste Management on Thursday, September 5 instead of Wednesday, September 4 due to the Labor Day holiday.

Kathy Kornasiewicz, one of the event’s coordinators, said the funds will be used for new landscaping in the downtown business district. “Those participating in the walk enjoyed meeting the business owners and learning more about what is available in our downtown business district,” she said. Participants also visited the Edward Ford Memorial Park and the memorial itself–many for the first time, she added. Music provided by D.J. Hiner, choral director at Rossford High School, brought many comments that the park would be a perfect venue for a regular “Music in the Park” event. “All who participated thoroughly enjoyed this event, and would like to see Strolling Downtown held again next year,” Mrs. Kornasiewicz said. The following businesses participated Amerasia, Bulldog Diner, Danny’s Cafe, Delightfully Done Cafe, Dear Editor: Special praise and recognition to Kathy Kornasiewicz, Barb Montague and their committee for the outstanding job of organizing Strolling Downtown. It was a great idea, and I’m glad I survived it. I met several new businesses in town and the people operating them. If you weren’t able to make it, you won’t want to miss the opportunity next year. Please support your local merchants in town. I can’t understand why more people don’t avail themselves of the opportunity to support these people. They are honest, hard-working people who provide something for you, and you don’t have to travel far to receive their services and merchandise. Become a proud member of the community and support them as often as you can. I know they would appreciate it.

Staff from local school districts attended a training August 16 at Owens Community College that featured the mock hijacking of a school bus. A bus departed from the Rossford School District garage at 8:30 a.m. and was “hijacked” by a member of the Northern Wood County SWAT team, demanding the bus be taken to the Owens Center for Emergency Preparedness on Tracy Road. Above, school staff sit on the Owens campus to watch a live video feed from on- board the bus of students “taken hostage.” Participating school districts were Rossford, Springfield, Toledo, Washington Local, Otsego, Bowling Green, Perrysburg and Northwood. The intent of the training was to better prepare professionals to manage services during an emergency situation, according to Jeff Culler, Rossford Schools transportation director. Below, SWAT members prepare to enter the bus. Rossford, Lake and Perrysburg Township police also participated, along with Rossford, Northwood, Lake and Perrysburg Township fire departments. Above, the “victims” of the hijacking are treated by Rossford EMS personnel. All students who took part in the training were aware of the drill and agreed to participate. They signed waivers, and those under 18 years old had parental permission.

BZA At the August 20 meeting, the Perrysburg Township Board of Zoning Appeals denied a request to increase the size of a monument sign along U.S. Route 20. Perry Retail Associates, LLC, 5800 Monroe Street, Toledo, asked the BZA for a variance to install an electronic message sign above the existing Tuffy sign at the intersection of Route 20 and Oakmead Drive. The township’s zoning code calls for monument signs in the C-2 community business district along the Route 20/23 overlay zone to “not exceed eight feet in height, 14 feet in width and 80 square feet in area.” Because the proposed sign exceeds the maximum sign height by 2.9 feet and the maximum area by 35.73, the company needs a variance. Bruce Kearns of Perry Retail Associates said the signage is for a new tenant, Grape Leaf Express, which is opening a restaurant in the corner of the L-shaped retail plaza. Noting that other signs along the Route 20 corridor are larger, Mr. Kearns said the signage request is not “unreasonable.” Board members pointed out that some signage was grandfathered prior to the change in the zoning resolution, and other signs on Route 20 are outside the township jurisdiction in Rossford or Perrysburg. Mr. Kearns contended that adding the electronic sign will provide Grape Leaf with “immediate recognition” and believes the addition to the monument sign will be less objectionable than placing a lighted sign on the building itself. In denying the variance, the BZA noted that the board has rejected past similar requests by other businesses in the overlay district. –Jane Maiolo Growing To Give Garden, a local nonprofit garden located in Perrysburg, is accepting donations from local gardeners.

They moved to Walbridge, in April 1966 after Tom secured employment with D.D. Fitzgerald’s serving the railroad industry. Mr. and Mrs. Forbush moved to Rossford in 1967, where they raised their four children, and all were graduates of Rossford High School. Mr. Forbush eventually secured employment with B&P Motor Express, formerly in Northwood, where he worked as a truck driver for nearly 10 years. He earned an associate’s degree in computer programming from Owens Technical College on June 10, 1982. After providing computer and administrative services for numerous state agencies, he became employed by Bob Evans Restaurant in Perrysburg, where he enjoyed working as a cook for many years. He continued to enjoy working with computer programming and PCs as a hobby, as well as occasionally traveling with his wife to many locales throughout the continental United States. Mr. and Mrs. Forbush moved to Toledo in 1999. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Carolyn; daughter, Karen; sons, Martin, Aaron, and Glen; sister, Ruth Ann (Forbush) Harper of Gallipolis Ferry; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Ruth and Richard Osten of Monclova, Ohio, and many nieces and nephews. The family will hold a private memorial in the Toledo area, as well as another private memorial in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia.

ROSSFORD RECORD JOURNAL — August 29, 2013 — Page 5 IN THE CHURCH OF YOUR CHOICE ROSSFORD UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 270 Dixie Highway Rossford, Ohio 43460 Phone 419-666-5323 Pastor: Rev. Robert Ball SUNDAY 9:00 a.m. Sunday School 10:00 a.m. Worship Service Nursery Available •ROBERT CHROMIK Robert John Chromik Sr., 65, died August 20, 2013, at his Springfield Township home. He was born April 14, 1948, in Toledo, to Steve and Cecelia Chromik. His goal to reach his 40th wedding anniversary to wife, Bonnie, was fulfilled on May 14, 2013. A 1967 graduate of Calvin M. Woodward High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he received an honorable discharge. He continued serving his community when he was hired at the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office in 1969, where he obtained numerous commendations and awards. He also trained with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office of Criminal Identification and Homicide Investigation, among others. He received the Outstanding Officer of the Year award in 1976. As a robbery/homicide detective he tirelessly devoted himself to serving the citizens of Lucas County by providing a voice for victims of crime. This commitment to the community continued after leaving law enforcement, as he wrote many letters on the behalf of deceased victims, when their perpetrators were up for parole. He chose to change his profession in 1980 and joined the Seaway Food Town Company, where his career focused on corporate security. After his career ended with Seaway Food Town due to a corporate transition, Mr. Chromik began a vocation with the Department of Homeland Security under the Transportation Security Administration out of Toledo Express Airport. Throughout the years it was not uncommon to find Mr. Chromik working on his boat and enjoying time with many friends at Bay View Yacht Club. His passion for hunting and fishing continued into retirement. At home, he enjoyed working in his yard, and showing off his home improvement skills. He remained a steadfast supporter and in contact within the law enforcement community, and this continues today with his immediate family. He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Warchol Chromik; children, Robert Chromik Jr., and Carolyn Chromik Sellers; son-in-law, Robert Sellers; mother, Cecelia Chromik; brothers, Steve, Thomas, and James; brother-in-law, Bill Warchol. He was preceded in death by his father, Steve Chromik. A Memorial Service was held Saturday, August 24, at the Sujkowski Funeral Home of Rossford, with the Rev. Thomas Leyland officiating. Interment was private. Memorial contributions may be made to the Retired Police K9 Assistance Fund, P.O. Box 126 Holland, Ohio 43528 or online at www. retiredpolicek9assistance fund.com. gh Need a pair for glare? w w w.

Jack Amlin and Greg Zlelinski Auctioneers 419-867-7653 Linda McMahon, Judy Converse honored as 2013 Patricia Gladieux award winners Rossford School District employees Judy Converse and Linda McMahon are the recipients of this year’s Patricia Gladieux Employee-ofthe-Year awards. Ms. McMahon, a clinic aide at the high school, was the classified recipient. Ms. Converse, a music teacher at Eagle Point and Indian Hills elementary schools, was the certified recipient. The award is annually presented to employees who show outstanding character in working with children in the school district. “It recognizes those who teach or demonstrate genuine concern, enthusiasm, moral character, charity, positive attitude and patriotism beyond what is required in their daily duties to a degree of being outstanding and showing un- selfish devotion to job-students-community,” Superintendent Dan Creps explained. The two award winners were surprised with the announcement at a back-toschool assembly for teachers August 16. Mr. Creps listed some of the comments about the women, who were nominated by their peers. Ms. Converse “has compassion for not only her job, but for her students” and is “a very motivating colleague and supports fellow staff. She is unselfish with her time.” She “works diligently and teaches with her heart and soul.” She has proven her dedication to the children of Rossford, the staff and parents and “puts her students first before her own self and works tirelessly.” Her colleagues also noted Ms. Converse is “passionate and has been a mentor to so many of us on the staff.” The superintendent described Ms. McMahon as dedicated to her work and concerned with the welfare of students. She is courteous and adept at spotting potential issues that may threaten students’ safety, and is calm and collected in difficult or stressful situations. Ms. McMahon is pragmatic and has a commonsense approach that helps students remain grounded. “Her commitment to our school is genuine,” Mr. Creps said. “She goes above and beyond to help everyone. She has a tremendous amount of patience and a strong desire to do whatever it takes to help.” Spaghetti dinner Club to meet Sept. 5 set for Sept. 20 Towne Towne Club of Toledo, a women’s social and philanthropic 2 BEDROOM Perrysburg ranch.

Must present this coupon Page 8 — August 29, 2013 — ROSSFORD RECORD JOURNAL RHS girls varsity tennis team looks to surprise By Michael Krieger The Rossford High School girls tennis team is off to an early 2-2 start to the season–a record that first-year coach Stacy Jurich has been happy to attain. Seven players returned from last year’s squad, although the majority do not have much varsity tennis experience. Despite youth and inexperience, the Lady Bulldogs have demonstrated a strong competitive nature so far, according to their coach. The returning players– Carly Hollerbach, Beth Bergstrom, Kaitlyn Maxwell, Bailee Self, Sarah Hufford, Aly Hope and Bethany Price–are simply focusing on improvement through the course of the season. “If we continue to improve, it’s likely that we might upset someone by the end of the year,” Coach Jurich said. Even though this is Jurich’s first season at Rossford, she is no stranger to coaching high school tennis after spending seven years at St. Ursula as a junior varsity coach. She is positive when she thinks about the future of the Rossford team. RHS girls varsity tennis team members are, from left, front row: Debora Beilstein, Sarah Hufford, Laura Reitz, Aly Hope; middle row: Carly Hollerbach, Hannah Gauthier, Bethany Price; and back row: Kaitlyn Maxwell, Bailee Self, Beth Bergstrom and Coach Jurich. “Most players are young,” Jurich said, “and it will be a learning season. We’re going to focus on developing the program and the team.” This young team is not without bright spots–most no tably, junior Carly Hollerbach who brings enough talent and experience to be considered one of the top players in the area. Coach Jurich believes that it will be exciting to see Hollerbach compete because this season is key in “taking that next big step in her high school career.” &DOOLQJ$OO$OXPQL 8MV\I+IZMMZ+MV\MZQ[[MMSQVOVWUQVI\QWV[NWZQ\[)VV]IT 7]\[\IVLQVO)T]UVQ)_IZL[ Q6WUQVMM[U][\PI^MKWUXTM\MLI0QOP;KPWWTWZ )L]T\-L]KI\QWVXZWOZIUI\8MV\IXZQWZ\W Q)XXTQKI\QWV[IZMI^IQTIJTMJaKITTQVO!WZ ^Q[Q\___XMV\IKIZMMZKMV\MZWZO Q+WUXTM\ML)XXTQKI\QWV[,]M";MX\MUJMZ If the team gains contributions from the rest of the squad, the girls should improve on last year’s 9-11 overall record. Tennis teams at RHS do not play for a league title as Rossford is only one of two schools that have tennis in the Northern Buckeye Conference. Still, with continuous improvement and budding competitiveness, the team looks to peak for the sectional tournament by the end of the season. Bulldog football schedule 2013 Aug. 30 vs. Bowling Green Sept. 6 at Port Clinton Sept. 13 vs. Springfield (Senior Night) Sept. 20 vs. Genoa Sept. 27 at Fostoria Oct. 4 at Otsego Oct. 11 vs. Woodmore (Homecoming) Games begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 18 at Eastwood Tickets are $6 for adults; Oct. 25 at Lake $4 for students.

Please disregard that schedule and follow the above schedule. RHS varsity cross country runners are, from left, front row: Maddie York, Taylor Smale, Jessica Pietrasz; middle row: Sara Maas, Samantha Strohm, Allyson Tayler, Nolan York; and back row: Coach George, Samantha Beck, Marty Linthicum, Madie Potts, Coach Kiehl Cross country Bulldogs focusing on improvement By Michael Krieger The boys and girls cross country teams at Rossford High School began their seasons August 24 at Mill Creek Golf Course in Sandusky at the Panther Run for Fun. This event, hosted by Sandusky St. Mary’s, is the cross country version of a scrimmage since runners only run two miles instead of the usual 3.1 miles for regular meets. The teams are led by veteran coach Vern Kiehl, in his second season at RHS. Previously, he led Perrysburg’s varsity for nine seasons and served as an assistant at Bowling Green for a year as well. The coach has placed the emphasis this year, not on winning, but simply on striving to improve in any way possible. He looks for opportunities for his Bulldogs to improve their times and their competitiveness as New members welcome to Bulldog Touchdown Club The Rossford Bulldog Touchdown Club is inviting new members to join. It is a non-profit volunteer organization committed to the support, promotion, and continued development of the Rossford High School football program and its student-athletes. With the guidance and leadership of the coaching staff, the primary purpose is to provide financial support for events, activities, facilities and equipment. The goal is to provide mentorship and scholarship to football student-athletes, encourage and motivate participation and spirit in the program and increase attendance at games. Membership levels are: •Maroon/Charter Member–$100 annual, includes voting rights •Gray Member–$50 •White Member–$25 Contact a club officer for more information: Neil MacKinnon, president; Ron Recknagel, vice president; Kevin Weaks (419-2619119), secretary; or Amy Dunk tank Friday to fund AfterProm The Rossford High School After Prom committee will hold a dunk tank Friday night at the football game. Among those participating are RHS Vice Principal Pat Murtha, RJHS teacher Bo Everts, Eagle Point Principal Jeff Taylor, Police Chief Glenn Goss and Rossford Mayor Neil MacKinnon III. Topics Camera Club to meet September 4 The Topics Camera Club will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 4, at 7 p.m., at the Way Public Library, 101 East Indiana Avenue, Perrysburg. Visitors are welcome. Visit the club’s Web site at www.topicscameraclub. com for more information about programs and activities. Topics Camera Club will meet on Wednesdays on October 2, November 6, December 4, January 8, February 5, March 5, April 2 and May 7. Last year was Smale’s first season as a cross country runner, and now according to Kiehl, has a better understanding of the sport and is more conscious about what to do to be successful this year. “It’s not out of the question for Taylor to place at the league meet this year,” Kiehl said. The girls team is nearly a mirror image of the boys. It features eight runners, four of whom (Jessica Pietrasz, Maddie York, Madie Potts and Samantha Strohm) return from last year’s team that finished sixth in the NBC. And like the boys, the they gain more race experience. Like many of the varsity teams at RHS, the cross country team also is young and inexperienced. The boys team only returns three lettermen in Taylor Smale, Evan Austin and Marty Linthicum. With only seven runners on the team, the Bulldogs are still interested in adding people to the team even at this late date. Last season the boys finished eighth in the NBC; however, the team does have a bright spot in Smale. The Bulldogs’ number one runner is a senior and again will be expected to shoulder the load for the team in races. girls’ Jessica Pietrasz is a bright spot on a team that is in the present focused primarily on developing the program. Also a senior in her second year running, Pietrasz is primed to compete at a high level this season. Kiehl believes she is ready to take the next step after experiencing a big learning year last season. Pietrasz, a former state qualifier in track, is no stranger to this kind of challenge. “If everything falls into place, she might be able to qualify for regionals–it’s not out of the question,” Kiehl said.
