Board Of Education Honors WHS Lady Flashes Bowling Team

The Willard Board of Education recognized the girls varsity bowling team for being state runners-up at its March meeting.

“Last Friday our girls competed in the state tournament in Columbus,” said Willard High School Principal Chris Schaaf. “I can speak as a dad that I’m very proud, I have a daughter that was on that team. As the principal of the school, I can tell you as freshmen, that’s a first time a lot of them had ever bowled.

FEC General Manager April Bordas indicated a new facility is being looked at for two reasons. “We are landlocked with no room to expand and our warehouse is in a flood plain.”

The warehouse has been under water at least twice, Bordas pointed out. “There was significant damage done to the building. In fact we have a historical mark from the State of Ohio as to how high the water was during one of those floods. It is four feet or so off the ground. Then there was a second flood, so it has been damaged twice that I know of...Read More
