Nate Kramer benefit, swim scoreboard dedication is Sunday

New Richmond High School will hold its 'Fight for Nate' benefit from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the high school to benefit the ‘Nate Kramer Medical Fund’.

The benefit will be preceded at 12:30 p.m. by the dedication of the new swim scoreboard honoring the Middeler family. Judy Middeler is entering her 36th year as the Lady Lions swim coach. Her brother Joe is in his 14th year as coach of the boys swim team.

Kramer, a 2007 graduate and record-holding swimmer, was diagnosed with Leukemia last June following the completion of his collegiate swimming career at the University of Cincinnati.

After giving up basketball in middle school, Kramer switched to swimming and went on to set school records in the 200-meter and 500-meter freestyles, the 200 Individual Medley and the 100-meter backstroke and won a scholarship to swim for UC.

Lady Lions Over Bethel-Tate

The Varsity Girls Basketball team defeated Bethel Tate last night 59-42 in a game that broke a 1st place tie in the SBAAC-American Division. The Lady Lions' defense slowed down the track-meet style of basketball Bethel-Tate likes to play, limiting their transition opportunities. Josie Buckingham led the way on offense scoring a career-high 35 points while adding 11 rebounds and 5 blocks. Sophomore Bailey Workman added 13 points and 3 assists. Sarah Shoemaker contributed in many ways while providing key ball handling and contributing 4 assists, 4 blocks, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals. It was a great team effort and all contributed to the effort. Next @ Batavia Monday Dec. 19.

The lions followed the win with a tough loss at Newport on Saturday. Leading the way for the Lions was Junior Evan McKinley with 9 points.

The Lions travel to Amelia on Friday night to try to improve their league record to 2-0.
