Sports exams are not enough.

Teens need yearly wellness visits, too.

While sports exams are an important part of your teen’s health, they do
not replace yearly wellness visits. At wellness appointments, in addition to
performing sports exams, your Parkview Physicians Group provider will: check
for abnormalities and teach about self-screening, talk with your teen about
lifestyle choices and habits, examine mental health and social pressures, and
review family medical history.

Contact your primary care physician today to schedule a wellness
visit. If you do not have a primary care physician, call 800-426-7307.

Many insurance plans now cover up to 100% of wellness and immunization visits for
children. Check with your insurance provider for details of your plan’s coverage.

Montpelier Homecoming 2017 Enjoys Summer Like Weather

By: Nate Calvin WE’RE A TEAM

It certainly didn’t feel like homecoming weather
with temperatures in the low 90s during the day. Stu-
dents of Montpelier High School enjoyed the weather
as much as the activities that were part of the 2017
Homecoming. Festivities actually began on Thursday
night with a parade that included football players,
cheerleaders, marching band, class banners, and the
2017 Homecoming Court, snake dance down Brown
Road, and a bonfire behind Montpelier High School.

On Friday night things started with each class en-
tering the football stadium displaying their class ban-
ner. In judging that happened earlier in the day, the
Freshmen received fourth place, the Sophomores third
place, second place went to the Juniors and first place
was awarded to the Senior class. The Homecoming
Court was then introduced starting with the freshman
attendant Addison Thompson. She is the daughter of
Nathan and Tashia Thompson and her escorts were
Gavin Stratton and Tylor Yahraus. The sophomore at-
tendant was Sage Gauden, daughter of Jim Gauden
and Heather Goebel and she was escorted by Cole
Dewire and Alex Vankham. The junior class was rep-
resented by Rheanna Stoy, daughter of Mark Oliph-
ant and Lana Stoy. Rheanna’s escorts for the evening
were Dakota Benner and Tanner Sanders. There were
three senior candidates for Homecoming Queen be-
ginning with Jacqueline Carlson. She is the daughter
of Andy and Julie Carlson and was escorted onto the
field by Austin Grubb and Jaden Vantong. The second
candidate was Summer Moon, daughter of Duanne
Moon and Annie Moon and her escorts were Christian
Blosser and Nathan Hutchison. The final contestant
for queen was Aubree Moss, daughter of Taber Moss
and Jody Moss. Her escorts were Evan Friend and
Kolden Uribes. Last year’s Homecoming Queen Meili
Leung was in attendance to crown the 2017 Montpe-
lier Homecoming Queen which went to Miss Summer

The Montpelier football team capped off the evening
by taking care of business on the field as they defeated
Toledo Christian 49-27 to earn their first win of the

o For the first time in many years, the baseball tour-
nament resulted in a financial net loss ($3,205). The
total attendance for the state tournament at Huntington
Park was 12,522.

o The softball tournament resulted in a financial net
loss of $300, which is less than the typical net loss.
The state tournament at Akron Firestone Stadium drew
7,437 fans.

o The inaugural lacrosse tournament resulted in net
proceeds of $73,492. Of note, the tournament begins at
the regional level (similar to the OHSAA football post-
season) and lacrosse is designated as an emerging sport
with different financial parameters, including team en-
try fees.

o The boys tennis state tournament at the Lindner
Family Tennis Center in Mason drew 1,122 fans and
resulted in a financial net loss of $2,702.

o The two-day high school track and field state meet
drew 27,409 fans and resulted in proceeds of $21,824.

FREE AT WWW.THEVILLAGEREPORTER.COM Going to the land of Dorothy and Toto is a long
trip, but not only is Dani up for it, so are her parents,
Annette Kubiske and Bruce Stevens. They saw their
daughter take a shining to the alleys long ago. “That
was really early on,” said Annette. “She started two-
handed...the two handed push, when she was about
five. She graduated to the one handed, and I think that
was when I bought her the leopard bowling ball when
she was about eight. She named it ‘Cheetah’.” “She
names all of her balls,” Bruce said. “She has twelve of
them, and she’s named them all.” If the names don’t
catch on, their scents do. The ball she named ‘AC’,
which is short for ‘Apple Crisp’, smells just like...well,
you know. “Each one has its own unique name and
gender,” Dani said with a smile.

Regardless of aphorisms, Dani’s aromatic arsenal
has raked in a ton of hardware over the years, and
there is no sign of her slowing down. Some of the ac-
colades that she has attained with her pin-splintering,
scented spheres include...

First Team All-Ohio (2015, 2017)
NWOAL First Team All-NWOAL (2015, 2016, 2017)
NWOAL High Average Champion (2017)
First Team All-District (2015, 2017)
...and those are just the ‘local’ individual awards.
There are other awards from other states that have
been won as well.
Having this level of skill is impressive, and drew the
attention of several collegiate programs. What makes
Danika Hickey a true gem and a beacon for recruit-
ers is the fact that she carries a game average of 206
on the hardwood...AND a 3.66 GPA in the classroom.
She is a member of the National Honor Society, and an
Academic All-Ohio scholar athlete. She was tabbed for
the Outstanding Ohio Scholar Athlete Academic Award
in 2016 and 2017, and is a published poet. Ottawa
University is so excited to be welcoming her, they have
already offered her a graduate assistant post as an as-
sistant bowling coach...and she has yet to even take
her first class. Dani likes the idea of coaching, but it
takes a back seat to what she truly loves...writing. She
chose Ottawa University because the small campus
can be traversed on foot in about five minutes, and
with a total enrollment of 750 students, “It’s home,”
Dani said. “It’s just like being home. It felt like one
big family. I’m going to major in a kind of communica-
tions, publishing and writing, because I like books. I
want to get into publishing; I want to be an author. I
know that’s a huge risk, so I’m going to minor in biol-
ogy to back it up.”
Dani already has a head start in the writing depart-
ment. “I write fantasy. I write mythical stuff and fic-
tion,” she said. She gave a brief synopsis of one of her
stories, which has an M. Night Shyamalan ring to it.
“The setting is for a girl that is born into a world of
our technology, with cars, TVs and cell phones, and
then she crosses a huge mountain and winds up in a
completely different time period, which is where the
fiction part comes in. It’s mostly fiction, but it’s tied
into reality.”
To read the achievement résumé of Dani Hickey,
then follow that up with the imaginative dreams and
drive of an accomplished fantasy writer that has been
offered a post-graduate assistant coaching position,
you would naturally assume that she is approaching
her mid-twenties, and is about to graduate from col-
lege. Dani has yet to set foot in college as a student,
and has yet to walk across the stage as a graduate of
Bryan High School. She has accomplished all of this
while still a high school student, which is why it is a
fool’s errand to judge her capabilities by her size.
Remember...dynamite comes in small packages.
