7th Grade Streak Continues
The Ontario 7th grade boys bested a tough Sandusky squad Saturday morning (54-41).  The Warriors led from start to finish, but a huge (19) point 3rd quarter by Ontario was the deal breaker.  Chance Mott led all scorers with (22) points, while Cameron Todd scored his season-high (19).  Kyle Woods added (6) points, while Cade Leach added (3).  Winners of eight straight, OMS (8-2, 5-2 NOL) will travel to Tiffin on Monday.  
Warriors Take Match in Close Battle
The eighth grade boys basketball team stopped their two game losing streak on Saturday by defeating Sandusky by the score of 49-47.  The game was close throughout with the biggest lead coming at the end of the third quarter when the Warriors led 34-29.  Sandusky took a 1 point lead with 30 seconds to go in the game and Ontario turned the ball over with 17 seconds left.  The Warriors were able to force a turnover on the inbounds and Parker VanArsdalen regained the lead for Ontario with 8 seconds remaining when he was able to rebound his own miss and was fouled while scoring the go ahead basket.  VanArsdalen was able to convert the free throw and after a timeout the Warriors forced another turnover to gain the victory.  Parker VanArsdalen and Isaac Baldridge led the way with 13 points each and Lucas Burkhalter had 9 points.  Avery Fisher had 8 points and Jayden Jacobs chipped in with 6 points.  With the win Ontario improved their record to 6-4 on the season, 4-3 in the NOL conference. 
Robotics Club Takes Shape
January 6th marked the start of our Ontario Middle School Lego Robotics Club, and they are so excited! They have 20 participants, which include all grade levels. Members started off the meeting getting to know each other and learning about the different types of robots used in industry. Breaking into into smaller groups, they began assembling LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot kits. At future meetings they will be moving on to programming basics, some challenges and obstacle courses for our robots, and perhaps a competition.  It’s sure to be an exciting time!
