Put-in-Bay School has expanded their offerings of extra-curricular activities this spring. Students can now participate in track and sailing. “We have a couple of athletes who have the potential to compete at very high levels in track, so we decided to hire a coach and schedule some meets. We do not have a running track on the island, but that has not prevented us from training. Coach Seth Benner, the Port Clinton track coach, has provided us with training routines and videos. Once or twice a week our runners take the ferry to the mainland and go to Port Clinton’s track facilities to work out with their athletes,” said Steve Poe, Put-in-Bay’s School superintendent. “Coach Benner has gone above and beyond to train our athletes. We appreciate the Port Clinton administration for letting us share their coach!” Poe added.
In addition to track, Put-in-Bay has added sailing to its list of extra-curricular activities. “We have a number of students who know how to sail from being involved with the island’s summer sail program, plus Coralee Wisnewski, an experienced sail instructor, recently moved to the island. Our children can now look forward to competing against other schools,” reports Mr. Poe.
