215 shots? 94 Three-Point Attempts? Gotta be the Berkey Classic.

First off....that's a lot of 3-point shots. Secondly, that's what All-Star games, especially the Berkey Classic have always been for. One last fun game for area seniors.

The "home" team, made up of seniors from Norwayne, Smithville, Rittman, Wooster, Dalton & Central Christian, defeated the "away" team, comprised of seniors from Orrville (Teven Mitchell and Syndel Gant), Hillsdale, Chippewa, Waynedale, Triway and Northwestern, 112-105.

The home team shot 16/50 (32%) form 3-pt. range, while the away team shot 14/44 (32%).

Smithville's Kenny Kornowski was named the MVP, scoring 20 points, grabbing rebounds, blocking shots, leaping tall buildings in a single bound.

Orrville's Teven Mitchell scored 16.

Representing OHS in the girls game were Libby Ladrach (13 points), Kelley Johnson (8 points, 3 assists) and Casey Bishop (8 points, 11 rebounds). Their team came out on the short end by a 97-60 score.

My favorite (and only) Berkey Classic memory....the 1996 game when 5 Orrville seniors (Reusser, Irby, Ray & Denson were 4, not sure of the 5th. Maybe McAllister or Nawyn?) started the game. Orrville brought a big crowd that night and loved the gesture. Can't say the same about the fans of the other county teams. But that group just finished off their 2nd straight state title, and deserved one more time together on the floor.
