STEPHANIE COMISAR

Lakota West Class of 2003: Soccer, Basketball & Track

Stephanie was named All State Honorable Mention, All Cincinnati First Team, and Butler County Player of the Year in basketball in 2003. This was the culmination of a three year varsity basketball career that resulted in her selection to All GMC and All Southwest Ohio teams in each of those three seasons.

Equally proficient as a goal keeper for the soccer team, she is the Lakota District all time co-record holder for most shutouts in a season, and lowest goals allowed average in a season. In this sport she was selected All GMC First Team, and All Butler County First team. She received these honors for both her junior and senior seasons. She was chosen by the area coaches to play in the Cincinnati All Star game at the conclusion of her senior soccer season.

Upon her graduation she was the recipient of the Pringle Award in recognition of her many and diverse athletic achievements in basketball, soccer, and also track and field.











MEGHAN CONNELLY

Lakota West Class of 2003: Soccer & Track

Meghan’s senior year in soccer was one of the most honored in Lakota history. She was named GMC Player of the Year, Butler County Player of the Year, Cincinnati Player of the Year, was All State First Team and runner-up for Ohio Player of the Year. She also garnered national attention by being named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s (NSCAA) All-American team.
In her two years at Lakota West she was twice named to All State teams, earning Third Team honors as a junior. Likewise she was twice selected to All GMC First Teams. Her successful play resulted in team success as well as personal success. She was the MVP of two Firebird teams, both GMC champions, both with final rankings of #1 in Cincinnati, and both with final state rankings in the top 3.

As a senior she further contributed to a successful Lakota West effort to capture the League All-Sports trophy by joining the track team. In her only Lakota track season she earned All GMC Second Team track honors, setting or helping set West records for 800 meter, 1600 meter, and the 3200 meter relay. She ran the anchor leg for the 3200 meter relay team that set a Firebird record which still stands. In the State meet series she placed in District competition and advanced to the finals of the South West Ohio Regional in the 800 meter run.










ZACH FLAKE

Lakota West Class of 2003: Wrestling

Zach, in his senior year, won the Ohio 140 pound State Wrestling Championship. No stranger to State competition, he had previously competed in two other State tournaments winning a second place medal in his junior season.

As a senior he went on to win the silver medal at the United States Senior National tournament. In this elite competition he lost in the finals to an opponent who had won four State Championships but not before Zach had bested three other wrestlers who had won a cumulative seven State Championships.

His 179 matches in a Lakota uniform represents the most ever by any Lakota District wrestler. Of these he won an outstanding 152, now the third highest total in District history. These 152 wins included, in addition to the State championship match previously described, three GMC championships, two District championships, two Sectional championships, and numerous other championships in Cincinnati coaches and invitational tournaments.

As a senior he was named Cincinnati Wrestler of the Year by the Cincinnati Enquirer, and Butler County Wrestler of the Year by the Hamilton Journal. He was also the winner of the Pringle Award, given to the most outstanding Lakota West male athlete in each graduating class irrespective of sports played.








JASON HOTALING

Lakota West Class of 1999: Golf

In 1998 Jason Hotaling captained the first Lakota West golf team to qualify for and play in an Ohio State Championship tournament. He finished tenth in the tournament as an individual earning All State Second Team honors, and was the teams low scorer leading the Firebirds to a ninth place finish, the best finish by a Lakota boy’s golf team up to that time.

He made his first trip to State the previous year when he had been the first Lakota West golfer and only the third in Lakota history to qualify as an individual. This he accomplished by winning a Cincinnati Sectional Championship to progress to the Southwest Ohio District tournament, and then finishing tied for third in the District tournament.

He played in three GMC tournaments, earning Honorable Mention honors as a junior and then coming back to achieve First Team status as a senior.

His round of two under par 70, carded as the medalist at the Centerville Quad match in 1998, was at that time the Lakota District eighteen hole scoring record, the lowest score shot in the first thirty plus year history of Lakota golf.









JENNY HURST

Lakota West Class of 1999: Diving

 
Jenny’s fifth place finish at the 1998 State meet is still the best finish ever recorded by a Lakota District diver, boy or girl. She is also the owner of the second best finish ever, eighth place, achieved in the 1999 State Diving Finals.

She is the only Lakota diver to date to have qualified for as many as three State meets.

She won the Greater Miami Conference diving championship in 1999 and in so doing set a new Conference record. A decade later that record still stands. She was only the second Lakota athlete to win a GMC Diving Championship and the first to do it after the league expansion to ten teams.

She is the first and only diver to be inducted into the Lakota Hall of Fame.










 ANDY LEE

Lakota Class of 1995: Baseball

Andy was twice named to the All Cincinnati Metro First Team by the Cincinnati Post. In 1995, the year of his second selection, he led the Cincinnati metropolitan area in strikeouts.

1995 was also the year he was voted by the league coaches as the best pitcher in the Greater Miami Conference. He had been virtually unbeatable in league play for two consecutive years.

In 1994 his GMC record was a perfect 6-0 as he led the league in both strikeouts and earned run average. His performances powered the Thunderbirds to a first ever Greater Miami Conference championship in baseball. He was credited with critical league victories over Hamilton and Middletown, both ranked in the top 10 in Cincinnati that year. He finished the year with an overall record of 8-1.

He got his first win as a sophomore in the Butler County tournament which Lakota ultimately won and went on to record 16 career victories, a total that still today places him among the District leaders. A power pitcher, his 196 career strikeouts stands second on the all time Lakota ladder and has not been matched or exceeded in the 13 years that have come and gone since his graduation. His strikeouts-per-inning pitched ratio has never been equaled.









ERIN LEE

Lakota East Class of 2003: Basketball & Volleyball 

  Erin is one of only ten players who have ever scored in excess of 1000 points in basketball in the 49 years that the sport has been played in the Lakota District. Her final total of 1060 places her fifth all time on the girls scoring list and eighth overall.

She was a four year varsity starter, a four year Team MVP, and a three year All GMC honoree. Only three Lakota girls have ever won All-GMC honors for three years in basketball; Stephanie Comisar who is also being inducted tonight, and one other player who is not yet eligible for the HOF.

As a senior she was further recognized by selection to the All Southwest Ohio basketball team.

Although best known for basketball she was also a standout on the volleyball court where she was also a four-year varsity letter winner. In her senior season she was the Team MVP for volleyball and was named to the All GMC Second Team.

Upon her graduation, she was presented with the Lakota East Pringle Award emblematic of being the best female athlete in her class.






FRANK WREN

Lakota Class of 1975: Baseball 

Frank Wren is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Lakota baseball uniform. A Thunderbird from 1974-75, Wren rewrote the Lakota baseball record book in 1975 when he batted .371 and set school records that would still remain standing a quarter of a century later. Wren established single season school batting records for most hits (46), most doubles (12), most triples (4), most homeruns (8), most runs scored (38) and most extra-base hits (24). His 30 runs batted in were second best in the Lakota record book. These records still stood when Lakota High School closed its doors in 1997.

After graduating from Lakota, Wren served for 15 years in the Montreal Expos organization. He played outfield as a minor leaguer with the Expos from 1977 to 1981, and then served as a coach in Montreal's farm system before becoming General Manager of the team's Class A team in Jamestown, N.Y.

In 1986, he was named the Expos assistant director of scouting and in 1989 added duties as director of Latin American scouting and operations.

Wren made his way through the major league hierarchy when he served as assistant General Manager with the Florida Marlins from 1991-98 and was instrumental in constructing a team that won the 1997 World Series in only its fifth year of existence.

As a result of his accomplishments with the Marlins, Wren was named General Manager of the Baltimore Orioles in October 1998. He would serve in Baltimore from 1998-99 when he left the Orioles to join General Manager John Schuerholz as Assistant General Manager in Atlanta. Wren would remain in this position for 8 years until being named Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Atlanta Braves on October 11, 2007. In January 2009, Wren was described by Sporting News Magazine as a pioneer and leader in the use of technology to operate a major league front office and direct a major league operation.



JAIME WYCKOFF

Lakota East Class of 2001: Cross Country, Track & Basketball 

Jaime Wyckoff is one of Lakota East’s most noteworthy and talented athletes…that almost never was! She is the second of four daughters of Mike and Blair Wyckoff. Along with their two sons the Wyckoff family has a proud athletic heritage at Lakota. Jaime is the only Lakota East High School athlete and one of the numbered few Lakota athletes, to earn 12 varsity letters in three different sports. This surpasses her older sister Brooke, a 2003 Hall of Fame inductee and arguably one of the most successful athletes in Lakota School District history. By not having the benefit of an “off season” to recuperate between sports, and being one of the top students academically in her class, this makes it even more remarkable what she was able to accomplish in her four years at East. Prior to her freshman year it was Brooke and close friend Bea Milligan that encouraged Jaime to run cross county for head coach Jason Lindsey during the Thunderhawks inaugural season of high school competition. Jaime went on from that freshman year to create her own “Lakota Legacy”.

Jaime was a three-time state qualifier in cross country, receiving All-Ohio honors twice during her career. In track Jaime was a state placer and All-Ohioan both her junior and senior years. She holds the 2nd fastest 3200 meter time at East and third all-time fastest in the Lakota District. She was the first female Lakota athlete to run under 11 minutes in the State track meet. Jaime was a member of the East 3200 relay team her senior year that won GMC, District and Regional titles and placed 4th at the State meet.

During her basketball career at East, Jaime was a four-year starter, winning the programs Rebounding and Thunderhawk awards. Says former East head coach Cindy Feltman, “Jaime Wyckoff was an incredible young lady, who accomplished a feat that today is almost unheard of earning 12 varsity letters in her four year career at East!”

Jaime was a 2001 recipient of the Kristen Renneker Scholarship and the Lakota East Character and Leadership Award. When Coach Lindsey called Jaime to tell her she was being inducted into the Hall of Fame her initial reaction was one of shock and disbelief that she was worthy of such an honor. Jaime will affectionately be remembered by her family as the Wyckoff sibling with the most varsity letters and long remembered by the Lakota Hall of Fame as an outstanding athlete, student and person!
