Lima Central Catholic earns 5th Bachman Award

May 24, 2012
By Nathan Pohlman of NWC

A year of unprecedented sports balance has resulted in Lima Central Catholic winning the “Don Bachman Award of Excellence” for the fifth time since joining the Northwest Conference in the 2006-07 school year.  This award recognizes the school in the conference that exhibits the highest level of consistent excellence in conference-sponsored sports and scholastic bowl competition.

The Thunderbirds compiled a record high 100 points to defeat Crestview by eight points. Defending champion Columbus Grove finished third with 86 points. 

The award was started during the 2005-06 school year to honor longtime Northwest Conference commissioner/secretary, Don Bachman, who served in that position for more than thirty years before passing away late in 2005.

This year L.C.C. won outright NWC titles in Golf, Football, Girls Soccer, Boys Basketball, and tied for first in Baseball.  The Thunderbirds also added second place finishes in Volleyball, Wrestling, and a tie for second in Girls Basketball.

Other NWC champions were Crestview (Volleyball, Softball, Academic, Baseball-tie ), Columbus Grove (Boys Cross Country, Boys Track), Delphos Jefferson (Girls Basketball, Wrestling), and Spencerville (Girls Cross Country, Girls Track).

The final order of finish for the 2011-12 school year is as follows:

                              Lima Central Catholic                       100.0

                              Crestview                                            92.0

                              Columbus Grove                                 86.0

                              Bluffton                                              79.5

                              Spencerville                                         76.0

                              Delphos Jefferson                               54.0

                              Ada                                                     53.0

                              Allen East                                           52.5
