BOWLING GREEN – Christine Chiricosta, an Avon Lake High alumna, is looking to extend her singles winning streak to eight matches this weekend when she and her Falcon teammates travel to Toledo and Ypsilanti this weekend for matches with the Rockets and Eastern Michigan.


The six-match winning streak has brought her singles record to 18-5 this year and moved her into the 17th spot on the all-time Bee Gee list for singles wins.


Last week the Falcons lost a 5-2 contest to Western Michigan although the match was closer than the score indicated.  Chiricosta won at singles and at doubles she was also a winner with mate Maddy Eccleston, but the Falcons lost the doubles point because the other two tandems were edged in their matches.

Chiricosta was named MAC Player of the Week three weeks ago.  She started the current six-match winning streak with a 4-0 week during spring break.


She is approaching her 120th career win (singles and doubles combined) this weekend.

(Note, score just in from tonight: Chiricosta fell at first singles to UT's Martina Wodzinski, but did help the Falcons get the doubles point as she and Maddy defeated Wodzinski and her mate).

ROCKY RIVER – In a first singles match that went down to the wire between a pair of guys named James neither of who go by “Jim”, defending West Shore Conference champion James Meyer outlasted Division I district qualifier James Oliver, but St. Ignatius won the team match over Rocky River today.


Meyer, who won the first singles title for the Pirates over Bay’s Curtis Lockhart (and former Wildcat) last spring in the WSC, gained the edge by nipping Oliver, 6-4, the first set, but lost it as the Iggy man came back to win the second set, 5-7.


Then Meyer won the exciting third set, 7-6 (4).


However, the Cats took the other two singles matches with Tom Mascia winning at second and Sean Frebes as third, both in one-sided straight sets.


First doubles went to Iggy with Amar Shah and Mike Nichols doing the honors in straight sets.


The 4-1 loss was the Pirates’ first setback of the season as they fall to 3-1 while the Cats go into the weekend with a spotless 2-0 record.

Oberlin, Ohio - Oberlin College Hall of Famer and former lacrosse star, Bill Webster ('61) is to be inducted into the Ohio Chapter of the United States Lacrosse Association Hall of Fame this year. The ceremony will be held in Columbus, Ohio on June 12, 2010.

Although Webster never played lacrosse in high school, he became a nationally recognized player by his senior year in college, a year in which he was named an All-American, as he led all midfielders in the country in scoring. The Yeomen captain accomplished this feat at a time when there was only one All-America team, which encompassed all schools throughout the country. 

By the end of his freshman year in college, he was a starting midfielder for the Yeomen and quickly developed into one of the best players in the nation. Through his level of play as one of the pioneer players in Ohio, he helped lacrosse in the Midwest region become accepted by the eastern elite.

While at Oberlin, Webster also was a four year starter and two-time All-Midwest selection in soccer. During his career on the lacrosse field, the Yeomen compiled a record of 39-5-1. Webster garnered an All-Midwest Lacrosse Association selection three times in his four year career. In 1961, he was selected to play in the North-South National All-Star Game, but was unable to attend due to a conflict with final exams. Webster also played on four MLA Championship teams, two of which when undefeated during his tenure.

Following completion of his Oberlin degree, Webster graduated from The Ohio State University Veterinary School at the top of his class.
