Jr. High Wrestlers capture State Championship Title
The Swanton Jr. High Wrestlers competed in the OAC Jr. High State dual championships on Sunday at Worthington Kilbourne High School in Columbus. In the first round of competition The Bulldogs thrashed The Milton Union Bulldogs 83 -9 moving them into the quarter finals were they would match up with The Tuslaw Mustangs. In the quarter finals Swanton got off to a slow start in their lower weight classes, but with the help of their middle and upper weight the bulldogs were able to prevail over the Mustangs 61 -32 advancing them into the semifinals. The Bulldogs would then face The Smithville Smitty’s in the semifinals where Swanton would once again be victorious beating the Smitty’s 56 -34.
The win over Smithville moved The Bulldogs into The finals where they would match up with League rivals The Wauseon Indians. Swanton would find themselves down 25 – 6 after the first six weight classes and with just twelve more weight classes to wrestle, things were not looking well for the dogs to claim the State Title. But it would be the Swanton Bulldogs who would win eight out of the next twelve weight classes to claim The State Title with a win over The Indians 53 – 43.
Congratulations to Swanton and Wauseon for Representing the N.W.O.A.L. League with their great finishes

Local School Districts partner for Grant to Improve Student Programming
Through the leadership of Fayette Superintendent Erik Belcher and Digital Academy Director Gene Rupp, the 16-district consortium of Antwerp, Archbold, Ayersville, Central Local, Delta, Edgerton, Edon, Evergreen, Fayette, Four County Career Center, Holgate, Liberty Center, Stryker, Swanton, Tinora, and Wauseon recently learned they were the recipient of a $3.4 million grant. The Ohio Controlling Board met Monday December 16, 2013 to give final approval to the grants recommended by the Straight A Governing Board, and State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Richard A. Ross, stopped at Swanton High School on Tuesday, December 17 to make the presentation to consortium representatives, and a crowd of around 100, including students from member district, onlookers.
Swanton’s share of the grant will be about $228,000 and will be used to greatly improve the district’s technology infrastructure. This will allow Swanton to move closer to prepare for other technology innovations such as one-to-one devices, and the State’s move toward online achievement assessments (OAA transitions to PARCC). The Swanton Local School District will then venture into the idea of providing another avenue for achieving success -- our own digital academy within our district.
