Port Clinton High School recently announced the Students of the Month for December and January. The December 2012 Student of the Month was Sydney Adkins and in January 2013 Trey Gluth was named Student of the Month.
Besides ringing the bell for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign Battle of The High Schools between Oak Harbor and Port Clinton, this year many area schools got involved with raising awareness and funds for The Salvation Army and those in need.
Oak Harbor Middle School raised $528.72 during the OSU/Michigan Game and Danbury High School held a fund raiser designed to aid students their age who may be suffering from the effects of the slow economy.
For much of the first quarter, Port Clinton outplayed Oak Harbor and held a 13-8 lead with about a minute remaining but things changed.
A.J. Cecil connected on a layup and Sam Laderach hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to tie it at 13, swinging the momentum in the Rockets’ favor as they went on a 12-0 run and took control of the contest before defeating the Redskins, 58-47.
Greg Haar’s three-pointer with 6:16 left in the second quarter gave Oak Harbor the lead for good at 16-13 and the Rockets never looked back.
