At Monday's Boardman Board of Education meeting, honors abounded as winter teams begin closing out their season victoriously. Among those honored were the Glenwood girls basketball team and the recent five seniors who went to the state swimming championships.

The Glenwood Girls Eighth Grade Basketball Team had finished their season winning the AAC (All American Conference). Head Coach Vince Carnevale said the girls have had a good run and fought hard in the final game against Howland.

"They stayed so steady throughout the whole game," he said. "They won it 29-22."

On the BHS Swim Team, seniors Noah Basista, Jordan Stackpole, Matthew DunLany, Will Linker and River Flatley got their names in the books after qualifying for the trip to the state championships. Noah Basista placed 7th in the breast stroke and 8th in the butterfly. Matthew DunLany ended up 22nd in state in the butterfly. Basista and DunLany combined with Will Linker, Jordan Stackpole, and River Flatley to make up the Boys Medley Relay and the Boys Freestyle Relay, which both qualified for state.

"The girls went 10-2 this year and finished fifth at sectional," said Head Swim Coach Carlo Cordon. "The Boys Team finished 12-0 and in combining the last three years, they have a record of 32-2. We like to win. We hate to lose, and we did it all without a home pool."

All swim team members got to parade in front of the school board members and get a congratulatory handshake.

Also honored at the meeting were the cast and crew from Peter and the Starcatcher, which ran at the Boardman Performing Arts Center from Feb. 6 through 9.

The Board also recognized West Boulevard School for being nominated by the state for a second National Blue Ribbon Award. West was one of only 14 Ohio schools nominated and according to Superintendent Tim Saxton, there are not a lot of schools across the nation that has a second Blue Ribbon Award.

West Principal Al Cervello said the process has begun and notice will be out in September.

On a different matter, the board accepted the following donations: Boardman Local Schools received $47,486.15 from the Boardman Booster Group for the March 1 debt payment regarding the Stadium project; Boardman Local Schools received $200 from the Kiwanis Club of Boardman to put towards the Tot Chef program; Boardman Center received $1,890 from Robert Senn to pupil support account; Boardman Center also received $100 from Glen Gardners for food pantry supplies; and Boardman Glenwood received $1,675 from Robert Senn for 2019-2020 underclass photos.

In other business:

Board President Vickie Davis noted the Boardman Band is just 50 uniforms short of making its goal for new uniforms.

Saxton released the dates for the 2020-21 school calendar. He said school will start on Aug. 31, which is the week before Labor Day (Sept. 7). Christmas break will take place between Dec. 22 and Jan. 4 and Spring Break will run the week before Easter and will include Good Friday. The Monday after Easter will be off also, then classes will resume on Tuesday. Saxton said the move to before Easter was due to the testing.
