MILLERSBURG -- The West Holmes School Board meeting had a sporting feeling to it, as a new athletic director, boys and girls varsity basketball coaches and a new wrestling coach were hired and outgoing AD Lee Ann Race gave a glowing report of the winter sports teams.

"I would like to commend Cael Woods, who was our only All-Ohioan this winter," Race said. "He is a freshman who not only made it to the state tournament this year, but stood on the podium, placing eighth, earning All-Ohio honors. I put the plaque up today."

Lindsy Snyder was approved as the girls basketball coach and Keith Troyer was rehired as varsity boys basketball coach. Scott Vaughn was officially hired as the new West Holmes wrestling coach, taking over for Jeff Woods.

Snyder is a third-grade teacher at Millersburg Elementary and has been an assistant coach under Lisa Ogi the past two years.

She is looking forward to getting things rolling through the summer.

Vaughn, too, was a West Holmes assistant under Woods the past three years after guiding Ravenna Southeast and Manchester before returning to his roots.

"I'm looking forward to getting things going," Vaughn said.

Adam Brately was hired as athletic director, extending his contract 10 days into the 2016-17 school year.

In other business, Linda Bush, representing the Lakeville/Big Prairie Community Club, addressed the board to extend her personal gratitude and that of her group to the board for sharing Lake Community Park with them.

"For the past 20 years, the group that I'm with has been operating the park; we have a walking track and stuff going on there all the time," Bush said. "I'm here to say thank you. I don't know if you have an idea how much that park means to our community, but without your support, especially Mr. (Bill) Sterling and Lee Ann Race's help and work, we wouldn't have that park. Thanks for the good job."
