The 2021-22 Ada varsity swim team has a good chance to advance a few individuals and a relay team to the state meet this winter.

Former Ohio Northern University swimmers Katey Stuart and Marisa Barton will coach the Ada swim program this season. Ada native Stuart is back for her second season at the helm. Stuart has returned from pharmacy rotations out of state for most of November.

The team is practicing at the ONU natatorium after using the Kenton YMCA last season due to COVID restrictions. Assistant coach Barton ran practices during November.

The Ada varsity wrestling program has its biggest team in recent years as co-athletic director Eric Perkins takes the reins of the program after a two-year hiatus.

Just two of the 13 matmen on the roster are returning lettermen, but newcomers including seven freshmen show promise. "We are young but the roster is bigger," said Perkins. "It is exciting to have a roster with so many freshmen."

One senior, two juniors, three sophomores and seven freshmen comprise the roster. In one key loss, district qualifier Antonio Pettit transferred to Kenton.

A visit to the Ada Rotary Club

By Paula Scott, Ada Icon

As the new Ada Icon editor, I was invited to attend a weekly meeting of the Ada Rotary Club. While I’ve known about the Rotary for as long as I can remember, this was my first time attending a meeting. The experience taught me that I had a lot to learn about Rotary International and the Ada club.

My first impression: great turnout for a weekly meeting. Fourteen of the club’s seventeen members came for lunch, club business, and a presentation by Hardin County board of elections director Stephanie McCullough and board member Michael Hubbell.
