Two winter season T-Bird coaches have decided that this will be their last season, and both of them deserve to be greatly thanked by our entire community. The first coach to decide to leave after this year is boys and girls bowling coach Eric Schwaiger. Eric has been the head coach of both teams for eight years, and most importantly, all the while volunteering his time. This allowed Lima Central Catholic to keep a bowling program going, all thanks to the generosity of coach Eric Schwaiger. Thanks Eric for all you have done for the bowlers at LCC, and thanks to Eric’s wife Deb for letting us steal your husband for a few months each year!!!!
The other coach is leaving one team but will be sticking around for another T-Bird team. Dan Reinicke has been the head coach for both the boys and girls swimming teams for more than twenty years. Dan has been a fixture for T-Bird swimmers over all of those years, through all of the 5 AM practices and long bus rides. Dan has run the OHSAA sectional for many years also, rallying volunteers from LCC to allow the school to make some money for all of his efforts. Dan will not be leaving us entirely however as he will be taking over the girls golf team next fall, allowing he and his wife Pat to travel during the winter. Thanks Pat for allowing Dan the time to make a difference in the lives of many LCC kids, and thanks Dan for all you have done!!!
