The Twinsburg track star hopes to be on the podium in Columbus this track season.
State champion. That's the one title Twinsburg High junior Garrett Crichlow wants to hold in the 1600 Meters at the end of this track season. "That's the ultimate goal for him this season; to be on top of the podium," Coach Sarah Kmet said of her star runner. Based on previous times, Chrichlow is the second-fastest of all Division I returners in the 1600 Meters in Ohio, and he is anxious to become No. 1. Last season he smashed the Tigers record by posting a 4:16, going to the state meet where he finished seventh. At one point Chrichlow was the eighth fastest sophomore in the nation. “I hate waiting for the next season to start, so I’ll go very easy,” Chrichlow said of this past offseason. However, easy for him is about six miles at a time…

State funding to Twinsburg is expected to increase 104 percent in 2014.
Twinsburg is one of the big winners in state funding over the next two years. The district is expected to get nearly $5.5 million in 2014 from state funding, according to preliminary numbers from the Ohio Department of Education. That is $2.8 million more than in 2013, when the district received $2.7 million, an increase of 104 percent. In 2015 the state is expected to dish out $6.8 million to the district, another 25 percent boost, resulting in another $1.3 million. These numbers are from Gov. John Kasich's budget proposal, and will likely change at least a little as the state legislature haggles out a final budget deal.

Head Coach Julie Solis has Twinsburg primed for another big season with a 5-0 start.
Three straight state titles and an in-state winning streak. Those are two subjects Twinsburg girls basketball coach Julie Solis doesn't have on her mind. "I honestly, and this is the truth, i don' t think about those things," Solis said. Obviously she is still competitive and wants championships and winning streaks, but like all good coaches, she won't give it the time of day. She simply focuses on the next game. "We had a good start and we're just trying to learn how to play with each other," Solis said. "I'm pretty happy." But sitting at 5-0 this season, the Lady Tigers are primed for another run at the state championship and haven't lost a game to an Ohio team in about two years, according to the Plain Dealer.

Twinsburg girls basketball coach Julie Solis is looking to a strong group of seniors to step up this season.
Trying to win a third-straight state championship while losing one of the best players in the state would be a challenge for any team. But if one team could do it, it would be the Twinsburg Lady Tigers. Head Coach Julie Solis is entering the season off to a great start already, leading the Tigers to a 5-0 record. And she's done it without the size of Malina Howard, who is suiting up for the University of Maryland this season. "Malina is a great player and it was great to have her but our identity is a lot different," Solis said. "It makes a difference not having someone who's 6'4"." Solis said her team is playing well so far and trying to learn to play together. She's happy with their start. "We're going with what we have," Solis said. "…
