MAC New Bremen comes to Ada Friday night

Non-conferece season opener part of a two-year, home-and-home series

By Cort Reynolds
ADA - Friday's intriguing season and home opener is the first meeting between Ada and New Bremen as part of a two-year, home-and-home series.

Playing in the powerful Midwest Athletic Conference, the Cardinals are primarily a running team. NB lost quite a few seniors from last season, but is likely better than their 2018 record (6-4 overall, 4-4 MAC) indicates because of their rugged schedule. They finished sixth in the formidable 10-team league last season.

Visiting Ada lost at defending league champion Spencerville 4-0 in the Northwest Conference opener Tuesday night.

Ada fell to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in the NWC after the defeat, while Spencerville improved to 2-0 and 1-0 in league play with the win.

"We played very lethargic the entire game," said Ada head coach Doug Poling. "Even with our poor first half play we were able to hold them scoreless."

After the teams battled to a 0-0 tie at halftime, the Bearcats tallied in the first five minutes of half two to take a 1-0 lead.

Ada gridders look to bounce back in 2019

Hull regains starting QB job, will lead potent offense

By Cort Reynolds
ADA - Behind a potent offense, the 2019 Ada football team looks to rebound from an injury-plagued season as the Bulldogs come off their first sub-.500 campaign in 15 years.

A potentially explosive offense could help the Bulldogs return to playoff and league contention.

After winning their 2018 opener the injury bug bit Ada hard, and the purple and gold managed just one victory vs. Delphos Jefferson over the final nine games. The Bulldogs missed the playoffs for only the second time in the last 12 seasons.

However, there was a silver lining to all the tumult and adversity.

ONU women’s and men’s golf season underway

Women’s team
The Ohio Northern women's golf program will look to take another step forward in 2019-20. The Polar Bears have their vision fixed on the top of the conference following a fourth-place finish in 2018-19. 

"I feel real confident with the women's team," seventh-year head coach Chad Bucci said. "This is my best recruiting class, and I see the team doing exceptionally well."

The success of Northern will likely stem from junior Lydia Cranmer (Farmington Hills, Mich./Ladywood). She won four of the seven tournaments she teed it up in last season.
