BGSU LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Athletic Director and Coach Ryan Wikel, along with SMCC High School students, Bella Fischer, Emma Maschari, Clay Wimmer, and Kyle Pelz, attended the Northwest Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NWOIAAA) Leadership Conference on the campus of Bowling Green State University. The students took part in leadership activities, listened to social media presentations, and had a question and answer session with Bowling Green student-athletes. Coach Wikel said, "I believe it's important for our student-athletes to be proactive in their approach to leadership. We need to learn as much as we can from people that are doing great things. It was a good opportunity for them to hear from college athletes and professors."

We thank you for your cooperation.
