By Cort Reynolds

DELPHOS - Ada senior Maddie Gossard was named honorable mention All-Northwest Conference in girls basketball by the league coaches in voting recently conducted at the annual selection meeting in Delphos.


Gossard led the Bulldogs in scoring, rebounds and three-point field goals made. The 5-8 wing will attend Heidelberg University next fall and play softball.


Senior Paige Motycka of second-place Crestview repeated as a first team all-league selection and was named NWC Player of the Year.


The Lady Knights finished in a three-way tie for second with Bluffton and Spencerville at 6-2, a game behind Columbus Grove.

ONU women next tourney game at home Thursday

The ONU women’s team will play their next OAC tourney game at home at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. Ohio Northern enters Thursday evening's semifinal matchup after a 76-60 victory over Wilmington. 

The Polar Bears are making their league-best 32nd appearance in the OAC Tournament. The Polar Bears have won the OAC Tournament title four times, most recently in 2016-17. ONU is 25-27 all-time in the tournament.

High hopes for women’s lacrosse

The Ohio Northern women's lacrosse team has high expectations entering the 2018 season.

Third-year head coach Beth Hemminger welcomes back nine starters and 12 letterwinners from last year's injury-plagued squad that went 3-13 overall and 2-6 in the Ohio Athletic Conference.

The Polar Bears played games with as many as six starters sidelined by injury last year, but Hemminger believes the added experience for the younger players will pay off this season.

Number 5 will continue football career at ONU

Seth Conley threw for over 10,000 yards at Ada HS QB

By Grant Pepper
For the last four years, fans and community members have filled the stands at War Memorial Park on fall Friday nights, eager to watch not only their hometown team, but also one of northwest Ohio’s hidden gems.

As the air got cool and the leaves turned red, they gathered to watch one of the state’s most entertaining offenses -- one that passed the ball on nearly every down. They gathered to watch a team that consistently fought for Northwest Conference championships. And in large part, they gathered to watch the six-foot-nothing, gunslinging quarterback that led the way.
