Update: as of Tuesday nights game against Oak Harbor, Tiffany Colston has reached 1,000 points in her high school career. Congratulations Tiffany!
Colston closes in on 1,000 points
The Redskin girls cruised to a 60-35 victory over Huron behind 19 points from forward Tiffany Colston. The win, which puts Port Clinton at 14-3 overall and 9-2 in the Sandusky Bay Conference, keeps the ‘Skins in contention for second place in the conference.
Following her performance, Colston is now seven points short of eclipsing the 1,000-point mark for her career. Hope Thorbahn finished with 11 points and Hannah Weaver chipped in with 10 to help pace the Port Clinton attack.
Due to inclement weather, Coffee with the Editor for Feb. 5 has been canceled. See you next Wednesday!
Unfortunately, I did not have the honor of meeting Firefighters Dickman and Machinski of the Toledo Fire Department. However, from the many stories and tributes I’ve read and watched on TV, I know exactly what type of person these gentlemen were and I have no doubt their legacy will live on for decades to come.
How do I know this? For the past six years and more I’ve had the privilege of working closely, sometimes daily, with the men and women of the Port Clinton Fire Department. As I heard and read the many stories and memorials of these two fallen heroes’ lives, I saw in these stories the faces of the members of our local fire department.
