The Grove City High School baseball team advanced to the Ohio High School Athletic Association Division I Championship Game

after defeating the Mason Comets 4-1. On June 11, the Greyhounds took on Sylvania Northview at Canal Park in Akron but were

defeated 6-1 for the state title. Before heading up to Akron, the Grove City community lined the streets in support of the team.

A sensational season

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

It is easy for athletes to lose sight of great accomplishments

when their season ends with a loss, particularly one that made

them feel as if their hearts had been ripped out of their chests.

But as the players on the Grove City High School boys varsity

baseball team begin to heal after coming up short in their first

state championship final, the impact they have made on their

storied program is starting to come back into focus.

Senior outfielder Dennis Ritlinger-Nirider says high expectations

are always attached to a new season, but he added they do

not set the bar at a level where they automatically believe they

will make it far into a post-season run.

“Our coach would not like for us to do that,” he said.

It is not that head coach Ryan Alexander is a proponent of low

expectations per se — “they are trained at a high level because

they expect to compete at a high level,” he explained — but he

would much rather they stick with the tried-and-true “three

goal” rule.

“We set three goals for the beginning of each season,” said

Alexander, a special education teacher who has been coaching

the varsity team since 2009. “One goal is to win the OCC-Ohio

Conference, another goal is to reach 20 wins, and the third goal

is to win a district championship. Anything else after that is just

icing on the cake.”

He said abiding by the three goal rule helps keep them

focused on the “one game at a time” mentality but he did admit

he doesn’t mind when shoulder chips are carried over into a new

Grove City High School baseball players Braxton Bryant,

Braydon Clark, and Zak Zigman hold up their trophy after

defeating Mason in the state semi-finals.

Attending a government meeting is not

often at the top of the to-do list for most

children. If they happen to be found in

attendance on a particular night, it is usually

attributed to the lack of availability of

a trusted sitter or a school making it a

requirement to earn a credit for a corresponding

course.

But a group of preteens made it a point

to come out to the village of Urbancrest

council meeting on June 14 to press their

elected officials on a singular issue — the

continued closure of the Vaughn E.

Hairston Southwest Community Center.

“I would like to know when the center

will be open for the youth,” said Britton

Jones, 12.

For the past two years, the popular destination

for athletic recreation and educational

programming has been closed to the

general public. It was initially believed to

be a temporary closure to slow the spread

of a novel coronavirus but then a loss of

state funding prompted the site’s long-time

manager (the YMCA of Central Ohio) to

cut recreational programming at the location.

Although the organization still runs

youth development programs such as Head

Start, Positive Alternative Learning for

Students (PALS) and after-school care out

of the site, it fell on the village and its advisory

committee to find partners to run

recreational activities.

It also didn’t help matters that thousands

of dollars in upgrades to the facility

were needed.

“It was in bad shape for a while there,”

said village Mayor Joseph Barnes Sr.

SEASON

Continued from page 1

season if any number of them are not met.

Take, for instance, their season-ending loss last year to

Lancaster High School.

It was the district championship final and the

Greyhounds had not been in this position since 2017.

Although evenly matched, they were confident they were

going to pull off a win against the Golden Gales but lost 2-

1 in an 11-inning thriller.

“We felt like we should have won that game,” said

Ritlinger-Nirider. “We should have won that game.”

He said the loss left a “bad taste” in their mouth, and it

propelled them to do better, to be better, this season. With

an even more competitive schedule — they played multiple

powerhouse schools from the south — they managed to be

just that.

The first team accomplishment of the season was winning

the conference and reaching that 20 game-win

threshold. Then came a rematch with the Golden Gales in

the Division I district championship game. It may have

taken them two days to do it (inclement weather delayed

the regularly scheduled game) but they came away with a

2-0 win in eight innings, propelling them to the Ohio High

School Athletic Association’s regional semi-finals for the

first time since 2014.

What followed, said Ritlinger-Nirider, was a “whirlwind”

of nail-biting games and up-and-down emotions that

saw them defeat Hilliard Darby 2-0 on June 3 and last

year’s Division I state champion New Albany 2-0 the following

day.

And then the school was back in the state tournament

final four for the first time since back-to-back seasons in

2011 and 2012.

Ritlinger-Nirider was at the game in 2012 when the #1

ranked Greyhounds met the #2 ranked Cincinnati

Archbishop Moeller at Huntington Park in Columbus. He

said he remembers a crowd packed with fans of the

Crimson and Blue, the feeling of overwhelming sadness

when they lost 3-2, and a burgeoning determination that

he would avenge the loss and send his beloved team to the

finals when he was old enough to play the high school

level.

While it was definitely a team effort, the Greyhounds

did beat an upstart Mason High School 4-1 on June 10 at

Canal Park in Akron and made it to their first Division I

state championship final.

“It was a very special moment in our school’s history, in

our program’s history and to our community,” said

Alexander. “We have had some fantastic teams that

have come along through the years but no one in

our storied history has made it this far.

“But that’s baseball for you. It’s a game of skill,

COMMUNITY CENTER

Continued from page 1

While there is still some work to be completed, village

officials were able to give Jones and his group of

inquisitive friends an answer to their most pressing

question.

“The Vaughn E. Hairston Southwest Community

Center is open to the youth and the public as of (June

15),” said Barnes.

According to Barnes, the community center was

able to open this summer primarily due to grant funding

provided by the Franklin County Department of

Job and Family Services. He said the county has designated

the community center as a “Ready to Earn”

worksite for teenagers seeking employment and they

will serve as camp counselors for daytime youth programming.

“We are excited to be able to partner with the county

commissioners and St. Stephen’s Community House

to not only provide our youth with some much needed

summer programming, but our community with access

to the center as well.”

The Southwest Community Center will be open

during the weekday and the hours of availability will

be divided among age groups.

Senior citizens will have access to the facility from

7 a.m. to 11 a.m.; youth ages 7-17 will have access to

the facility from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a free lunch provided

daily; and those with ages that fall in-between

those groups will have access to the facility from 5 p.m.

to 7 p.m.

Use of the facility will be free throughout the month

of June but it will transition to a monthly fee starting

on July 1, 2022. Barnes said the fee schedule will be

$25 for all seniors and young adults who reside in the

a game of inches and ultimately a game of luck. And sometimes

you don’t have that luck and sometimes you do and

it runs out.”

Unfortunately, he said, that is exactly what happened

when the team met Sylvania Northview in the final game,

losing to the Wildcats 6-1 on June 11.

“Our game is small ball and they played it against us

and they played it better than us,” said Alexander. “That’s

just the way it goes sometimes.”

After the loss, the players were plagued by what if’s and

all of their pride in the team’s accomplishments and the

individual accolades were tossed to the wayside. They didn’t

remember that they met all three of their seasonal

goals and they certainly didn’t bask in the knowledge that

they made it to the regionals, the semi-finals or their challenging

division’s final game.

Eventually, those great memories and all of the good

feelings attached to them started to filter back in, so much

so that they can now acknowledge the history that was

made — sort of.

“I think we’re starting to wrap our heads around it but

it is still settling in,” said Ritlinger-Nirider.

Alexander said when it finally does, they ought to be

proud of what they did as a team this season.

“We scrapped all year, we met and surpassed our goals,

and we played the game the right way,” he said. “You can’t

ask for anything more.”

village; $30 for young adults who do not reside in the

village; $15 for non-resident youth; and $10 for youth

who live in the village.

Although the general public will now be able to

access the facility, what the center can offer in terms

of organized programming is currently limited to the

daytime youth programming portion. For instance, the

fitness center will be open for solo or buddy-partner

training but there are no scheduled group workout sessions

led by an instructor at this time.

Much to the disappointment of the children (and

some adults) in attendance, the indoor swimming pool

will also be unavailable as it needs upgrades related to

the pumping system. There is also the question as to

whether it could be adequately staffed due to the

nationwide shortage of lifeguards.

Barnes said while village officials know the

Southwest Community Center still has a ways to go

before it can be fully operational, they are pleased to

have it open to the general public in some capacity

again.

“It has taken us a little while but we are getting

there,” he said.

In other news, Barnes said the village is accepting

applications for youth (especially those who live in

Urbancrest) between the ages of 14-18 to work as daytime

youth counselors at the site through the “Ready

to Earn” program. Inquiries can be made in-person

during normal business hours at the village administrative

office, located at 3357 Central Ave., or by calling

(614) 875-1279. The program will run through the

beginning of August.

In Education

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The South-Western City School

District’s administrative personnel have a

new contract.

At its regular meeting on June 13, the

board of education unanimously approved

a new management agreement with the

members of the South-Western

Administrative Association (SWAA).

Under the terms of the management

agreement, which runs from July 1, 2022

through June 30, 2025, classified administrators

will receive a salary increase of 3

percent in the first two years of the contract,

and a 2.8 percent increase in the

third year. Certificated administrators will

receive a 1 percent salary increase and a 2

percent board paid retirement in the first

two years of the contract, and a 2.8 percent

salary increase in the third year of the contract.

Members of SWAA include school principals,

assistant principals, and some

administrative staff at the District Service

Center.

Superintendent Dr. Bill Wise praised

the members of the association, citing their

tireless work behind the scenes.

“Effective leadership drives culture,

which shapes the experiences and opportunities

our students enjoy each day at

South-Western City Schools,” he said. “Our

administrative team works tirelessly

behind the scenes to account for the needs

of the school community and provide opportunities.”

Members of the board shared a similar

sentiment.

“We applaud our administrative team

members for their service and commitment

to the children of the district,” said board

president Cathy Johnson. “The leadership

our administrators provide is a testament

to their skills in working with children and

education.

“Expectations and demands continue to

increase and our administrative staff continues

to meet the challenge.”

During the meeting, the board also

approved a salary index increase for non-

SWAA members. They include the deputy

superintendent, the executive director of

technology, the executive director of communications,

the assistant superintendents

of curriculum and personnel and

additional DSC staff.

The new management agreement with

the members of SWAA comes on the heels

of recent board approved contracts with

members of its certificated and classified

employees. In April, the board approved a

new three-year collective bargaining agreement

with the Ohio Association of Public

School Employees (OAPSE) Local 211 and

the South-Western Education Association

Treasurer Hugh Garside said while the

increase in salaries and benefits were higher

than expected in the five-year financial

forecast, the district will be able to maintain

its strong fiscal standing throughout.

“We would not be able to certify these

salary increases if we could not prove that

we have the funds available,” he said.

In other news, the board agreed to waive

a competitive bidding process and declare

an upgrade to the HVAC unit at the Bostic

Center an urgent necessity. They awarded

a $383,029 contract to Speer Mechanical to

provide the upgrades as “expeditiously as

possible.” Garside said he expects the delivery

date of the unit to take at least 40

weeks due to the high demand of raw materials

and continued supply chain issues.

Fitness in the Park

www.columbusmessenger.com

By Andrea Cordle

Grove City Editor

The city of Grove City is inviting citizens to get

active in the park.

The city’s parks and recreation department is now

offering Fitness in the Park, a drop-in workout class.

“Our staff is always looking at creative new ideas to

get people into the parks,” said Grove City Parks and

Recreation Director Kim Conrad. “We wanted to offer

something different this year.”

Fitness in the Park offers a variety of classes with

instruction from local instructors from 6:30 to 7:30

p.m. each Thursday from now through the end of July

in the Town Center Park, 3359 Park St. The classes

include hip-hop fitness with Mike Nicholson, Zumba

led by Chauntel Horaney, yoga with Amber Philips,

and body combat instructed by Trisha Justice.

The free sessions allow residents to drop-in for the

whole class or part of the class. All ages and fitness levels

are encouraged to participate.

“It’s for anyone and everyone,” said Conrad.

According to Conrad, the instructors teach modifications

for those who need to go at a slower pace.

The remaining classes include:

June 30: hip-hop fitness

• July 7: Zumba

• July 14: yoga

• July 21: body combat

• July 28: Zumba

Residents should dress in activewear and bring

water.

Fitness in the Park has been sponsored by The Ohio

State University Wexner Medical Center. According to

Pets of the week

Calvin and his family

were rescued from

the streets and raised

in a loving foster

home. He is a 3-

month-old cute guy

who is very chatty

and loves to play.

Calvin is neutered,

vaccinated and ready

for his forever home.

He is up for adoption through Colony Cats.

FYI: colonycats.org

Emma is almost 2

years old. Her kittens

have all been adopted.

Now, she is looking

for her turn for a

furever home. She is

not happy in her foster

home because

some of the other

cats chase her. She

needs a home with fewer cats and with someone

who will work with her to gain her trust.

She is a sweet girl and just needs time to

adjust to a new home. She loves Temptations

cat treats. Emma would do best in a quiet

home with older children. She is up for adoption

through Friends for Life Animal Haven.

FYI: fflah.org

www.columbusmessenger.com

These furry friends are available

for adoption at local

rescues and shelters

Belle is a very sweet

little girl. She is a bit

plump and about 2

years old. All of her

kittens have been

adopted, so now

Belle is looking for

her furever home.

She is a bit shy but

loves to sit in her foster

dad’s lap. She

gets along with other

cats. A family with older kids might work out

best for her. Belle is up for adoption through

Friends for Life Animal Haven.

FYI: fflah.org

Cheese is a friendly

cat who would make

a great addition to

any family. He likes to

play and just hang

out. Cheese is very

eager to find a home

of his own. If you are

interested in meeting

Cheese, contact

Colony Cats.
