Edon Blue Bomber Athletes Honored At Winter Awards Program

SPECIAL AWARD … To assure the Lady Bombers Basketball Program is set in the right direction; Coach Bob Swary offered his young student managers some helpful advice ~ and a new basketball ~ to get their upcoming careers underway.  “You get in the backyard and start shooting about three days a week,’” he told them.  “Start shooting from the basket and work your way out ~ and at your age, I don’t want to see you shooting anything past fifteen feet!”  Agreeing not to attempt any three-pointers right now (to avoid Coach’s consequences) are, from left, Claire Radabaugh, Alea Brandt, Carlie Kiess and Paige Briner.

COACH’S AWARD … Lady Bombers JV Coach John Gallehue (left) honored his friend and colleague, Varsity Coach Bob Swary (right), with a special award during Edon’s Winter Athletic Awards Night.  “He’s taught me more about the game of basketball ~ and about life ~ and has given me advice on everything,” shared Gallehue.  “He’s a great guy and this is a long time coming.”  Throughout his sixteen varsity seasons, Coach Swary amassed a record of one hundred ninety-six wins and during his four-year tenure with the Lady Bombers (2009-2013), became the second winningest coach in the program’s history.  His time and dedication to girls basketball for twenty-five years as a coach ~ both at Edon and Edgerton ~ is greatly appreciated by players, parents and fans alike.
