This time of the high school basketball season, each team recognizes their senior cheerleaders, managers and players.

That was the case this past Saturday night at Columbus Academy as the school recognized five special players, Michael Hoffman, Austin Peterman, Collin Ricker, Jon Dillon and intern Jeff Salamon.

All five of these players were in the starting lineups at the game’s beginning. But two of the were just glad to be a part of the team. Hoffman and Dillon both are captains and were top players at one time, but medical reasons have caused them to miss playing regularly. Dillon became the team’s manager.

Head coach Chris Jones decided to honor them with a start against the Panthers of Licking Valley in a Mid-State League Ohio Division game.

The Vikings of Academy started the game down 11-2. Coach Jones made substitutions and the team started its comeback and tied the game at 15 to end the first quarter.

Academy started to take control in the second quarter as Jacob Mikalov, a tall, wiry 6’7 inside player came into the game and caused matchup troubles for the Panthers who could not stop him from rebounding and scoring seven points.

The halftime score was 30-28 Academy.

Licking Valley, the seventh place teamĀ  in the Mid-State League, came alive and led at the end of three quarters, 43-41.

Academy finally took total control of the game in the fourth quarter as Zach Ratcliff scored 11 of the team’s 29 points and help salt the game away, 70-59.

There was a gesture of sportsmanship in the game by Licking Valley’s coach Todd Torbert saw that Jon Dillon had re-entered the game and had one of his players to foul him. Dillon, obviously a very popular student, stepped to the line with all of the student section screaming and calling his name out as he stepped to the free throw line with 35.8 seconds left and he sanked both free throws to the delight of fans.

It’ll be a night the seniors will remember for years to come.

With the win, the Vikings upped their record to 12-5, 8-4 and in 3rd place in the Mid-State League Ohio Division while Licking Valley dropped to 5-12, 3-9.
