Two-sport star Jacob Matuska led the Hartley Hawks to a key win in the Central Catholic League over rival St. Charles Friday night.

Matuska, who is going to Notre Dame on a football scholarship, scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and helped lead his team on an 8-2 fourth quarter run in the 45-36 win.

CCL battles are usually low-scoring and Friday’s game was no exception as the two schools scored only 39 points combined after three quarters.

Hartley improves to (6-1,3-0), while St. Charles drops to (5-3,1-2).

The post-season awards keep piling up for Northland senior guard Trey Burke.

For the third straight year, a Vikings player has been honored on the Dispatch All-Metro Player of the Year Award.

Burke this season became more of a scorer, shooter and team leader in leading Northland (26-2) and a Ohio Division I State Runner-up finish after losing to Cincinnati La Salle on Saturday night.

Burke scored 23.6 ppg, 6.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 steals, while shooting 59 percent from the floor and 73 percent from the free throw line.

He is joined on the first team by other area stars including Matt Bingaya of Delaware, Brian Sullivan of Upper Arlington, Traevon Jackson of Westerville South and Stevie Taylor of Gahanna.

Coach of the Year goes to Hartley Hawks head coach Randy Kortokrax, who’s team was 22-2 and made it to the Division II state semifinals against Akron St.Vincent-St. Mary’s.

Kalida, Ohio native Randy Kortokrax is the Division II coach of the year.

Kortokrax has the Hartley Hawks in the state tournament playing Thursday morning at 10:45 a.m. against Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s (17-9). The Hawks, winners of the Central Catholic League, are 22-1.

The Hawks basketball team have had an exceptional year, considering they had a late start to the season because the football team won a state football championship and most of the players from that team play on the hardcourt as well.

This is Hartley’s first state appearance since 1990.

Kortokrax himself was a top-notch basketball player himself at the University of Findlay from 1983-87. He is the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,575 points, 1,242 rebounds and number one in points per game 23.4 and rebounds per game 10.9. He holds 14 Findlay school records in basketball.

Kortokrax is a 2010 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Hall of Fame Inductee.
