COLLEGE ATHLETES: Urbana’s Baker has career game

MEADVILLE — This past week saw the fall season come to an abrupt halt for many local athletes as the winter schedule begins to take full control of the athletic world.

That does not mean our local collegiate athletes are done making news. In fact, many are just starting to get some of the accolades that will come. Others, meanwhile, are just getting the season’s résumé started ...

  • One of those just getting started is former Conneaut Valley basketball standout Casey Baker, who is just a few games into his junior season at Urbana University in Ohio.

    Baker and the Blue Knights suffered an improbable loss last Tuesday as Ohio Dominican University’s Brandon Carr sank a 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime. Turnovers cost Urbana early as ODU escaped with a 93-91 OT victory.

    Baker was stellar, even in defeat. He recorded a double-double, finishing with a team-high 23 points and 11 boards. Baker shot 9 of 13 from the field and added 3 assists to his stat line.


  • Lauralee Clements, a 2011 graduate of Linesville High School, saw her season with the Edinboro University women’s soccer team come to a close with a loss to Shippensburg in the NCAA Division II playoffs on Friday. Clements received her first honor shortly afterwards as she was named to the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference First Team as a defender.


  • Maplewood Junior-Senior High School alum Justin Dahl concluded his stellar season for Westminster College by kicking the game-winning field goal in a 30-27 win over Geneva on Saturday.

    Dahl was 3-for-3 for the game, making him 6-for-10 on the season. He hit his first of the afternoon from 19 yards, then added a 21-yarder with 4:27 remaining in the first half. His final boot was from 42 yards away, the second longest field goal in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference this season.
