Cavs Headed to College; Buckeye Basil Visits Ceremonies
Wednesday 05-19-2010 8:03am ET
Family and friends gathered in the Chillicothe High School cafeteria this week in honor of four more Cavalier athletes heading to college.
Monique Lee, a 4-year starter for the Lady Cavs, will be reunited on the basketball floor with her sister Megan at Division II St. Andrew's Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, North Carolina.
Mo is excited to get to be on the same floor with her sister again saying "Just playing with her, we know each other, I know playing with her (again) will be fun."
Lee hopes to be an orthopedic surgeon.
Three football Cavaliers Troy Netter, Tyler Holz and Keagan Arledge announced their plans.
Netter is headed to Division III Otterbein who plans to use him at wide receiver. He'll also see some familiar faces when camp opens this summer. Former Cavs Kent Parker, Jordan Benson and Ron Smith. "Ronnie's gonna be a big help because he's playing wide receiver just like I am... Kent, always a familiar face and JB. I mean, we'll have friends everywhere."
Netter will be a business major.
Holz, who's going to Division III Defiance, says he'll miss the Friday night atmosphere at Herrnstein Field. "High school football is probably one of the purest things you'll ever see and if you're a part of it, it's something that'll stick with you through a lifetime. You meet friends, and honestly, the guys they'll be family, brothers the rest of your life. It's a new chapter, I get to continue my career and I am blessed enough to continue that."
Holz will be majoring in Criminology and Psychology.
Keagan Arledge is headed to Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania to study Veterinary Medicine. "It's been my life long dream. I've always loved animals and science, it's been my choice forever."
Arledge says getting to play sports at Washington and Jefferson is a plus "... going there for academics and the opportunity to play football... and hopefully swimming."
Arledge became the 40th Cavs football player to head to college under retired coach Bill Davidson.
Davidson's 35th player, Drew Basil, just completed spring practice at Ohio State.
As an early enrollee, Basil had the opportunity to get on the field quickly. He participated in the Buckeyes' Kick Scrimmage and in the Spring Game nailed two PATs, handled kickoffs and hit a 47-yard field goal.
Basil said kicking in the 'Shoe is pretty awesome. "It's an amazing feeling... the closed end just seems like it's forever and ever away."
He adds there's plenty of backdrop for taking aim, "We (kickers) have alot of targets to pick from through the uprights. You have the flag poles up on the top, the flag pole right down the middle and I guess even sometimes there's the security guards up on the towers that you can pick a spot and aim for."
Basil's biggest thrill of the spring game wasn't making the kicks, it was walking onto the field and hearing the Buckeye faithful. "The crowd just just went crazy. And seriously, the bumps on my arms just popped up as soon as they started cheering."
The Buckeyes open play with Marshall September 2nd.

Lady Cavs 2nd in SEOAL Meet, Boys 5th
Saturday 05-15-2010 9:53pm ET
The Chillicothe Girls finished second to host Marietta by just a point and a half (150.0-148.5) in the SEOAL league meet.
The Boys finished 5th.
The Lady Cavs won seven events, including Megan Osborne's league record 400 Meter Dash (58.19) breaking the previous mark by one-hundredth of a second. Osborne also won the 100 Meter Dash.
Chillicothe's Girls relay team of Kailey Longpre, Baylee Stark, Emilie Kemper and Nicole Alberta also won the 4x200 and the 4x400 team of Longpre, Kemper, Osborne and Alyssa Mathis also finished ahead of the field. Mathis also grabbed the 800 Meter Run championship. The Cavs' Audra Metzler and Erin Barnes were first and second in the Long Jump
Gallia Academy nipped Chillicothe in two events. Peyton Adkins won the 1600 Meter Run just 3 seconds ahead the Cavs' Mathis with Hannah McCorkle third, and in the Shot Put where Gallia's Hannah Loveday threw a foot and a half further than Chillicothe's Alyssa Oates who took second. The High Jump was also close with Gallia's Allie Troester out jumping McCorkle and Metzler who were third and fourth. A position switch in one of those events would've swung the meet Chillicothe's way.
On the Boys side, Logan took the team title. Chillicothe won three events. Isaac Beverly won the 400 Meter Dash and Cameron Lowe won the 800 Meter Run. Beverly and Lowe teamed with Tyler Semancik and Patrick Byrd to take the 4x400 Meter Relay.
