Tom Archdeacon: Ex-swimmer dives in to save WSU program
 According to a former Wright State University swimmer who is now an international business director for a company that manufactures medical equipment, a “large donor” has emerged and could help raise the funds needed to save the targeted WSU swimming and diving program for the coming season. “Our goal was to raise $85,000...

Archdeacon: Right place, right time for new basketball coach at Miami
 He’s taken over a Miami University basketball program that has had eight straight losing seasons, has been to one NCAA Tournament in the past 18 years and saw attendance at Millett Hall last season drop to an announced average of 1,490 per game although, at times, the crowd looked to be almost half that size. He has taken over a team...

Tom Archdeacon: A tribute to Dayton’s own pool shark, ‘The Maestro’
 It was the early 1970s — the era of the Vietnam War — and Minnesota Fats was in town to promote a Prisoner of War/ Missing in Action (POW/MIA) fundraising event at Memorial Hall. At the time Fats was a well-known, fast-talking, bigger-than-life figure in the sports world. He was known for his tall tales, engaging banter and his...

Tom Archdeacon: Local legend Duffy ready to revive Miami program
 Frank Goldsberry sat in his office at Millett Hall on Thursday afternoon and told a story from a decade and a half ago that he believes relates to today. It’s from the days he was the Chaminade Julienne High School girls basketball coach and his teams weren’t just a perennial state power — 170-16 in his seven seasons &mdash...

Tom Archdeacon: How Central State hurdler went from ‘knucklehead’ to national champion
 Humble pie to victory cake. “Knucklehead” to national champ. From being in his dorm room, alone and mad at the world, to being celebrated by everyone from his family, the Dunbar High School track team that just won state, the entire Central State University community, collegiate hurdlers from across the nation and even over on...

Tom Archdeacon: Stroll through cemetery brings legends to life
 Here are three stories from the grave: One is about a 5-foot-6 world champion bicycle racer — “The Little Dayton Demon” — who was also a famed racecar driver until he lost a leg in a flaming crash that brought fans rushing from the grandstands to save him from the flames. Though small in stature and later hobbled,...

Tom Archdeacon: Bales embarks on second career — as a doctor
 She said her mom has a word for it. “She calls it synchronicity,” Alison Bales explained Friday. “There’s even a book on it. It’s a concept that has to do with coincidences and how your life lines up.” But while analytical psychologist Carl Jung penned one book on the subject and British author Arthur Koestler...

Archdeacon: Dayton Flyers community rallies around Kyle Davis
 They told him not to come home. They didn’t want him to see it. “I grew up in that house my whole life,” Kyle Davis said. “My mother has been there her whole life. Some of the family members have been there for 60-plus years, so it was a real mix of emotions to come back and see what had happened. “Every window...

Archdeacon: Remembering Trona Logan and the lessons she taught us
 A few years ago — before Lou Gehrig’s Disease incapacitated her — Trona Logan led me from her assistant athletic director’s office in Central State’s Beacom/Lewis Gymnasium out onto the basketball court. I had been quizzing her about the efforts of her Hall of Fame career as a player — her four years as...

Tom Archdeacon: Dragons fan celebrates 100th birthday in style
 Nathaniel Scott is going to be busy this week. He’ll be spending time in the front yard of his Jefferson Township home working on his pitching form with the help of two of his grand-nephews, Marqus Corney and Sidiq Anderson. Then on Friday evening, Scott — a Dayton Dragons season-ticket holder who usually sits behind home plate...

Archdeacon: 22 years after leaving for the NFL, Central State Hall of Famer again makes good on promise to mom
 She cheered him when he was a two-sport star at Southside High School in Muncie, Indiana and she came to all his games at Central State, where he was an All American offensive lineman and his 1992 team won the NAIA national title. She beamed when he and his championship teammates were celebrated by President Bill Clinton at the White House...

Tom Archdeacon: Horseman, wife a great team at the track
 This is not to say it’s a commentary on her driving, but when Becky Woebkenberg gets behind the wheel of their white Ford F-150 pick-up, her husband Mike gets in the back seat, turns completely around and looks out the rear window. “I’m a true backseat driver,” Mike grinned. But he wasn’t kidding. And that&rsquo...

Tom Archdeacon: Steubenville offender gets second chance at Central State
 One of the more controversial, polarizing — and, some say, mischaracterized — football players in the nation has joined the Central State Marauders and is vying for the stating quarterback job. How the venture ultimately plays out will make the story of Trent Mays one of second chances or second guesses. Five years ago, Mays &mdash...

Tom Archdeacon: Former Buckeye considering Central State
 Even though the newest edition of his Central State team was out on the McPherson Stadium field for a spring game preview of the season, it would have been understandable Saturday if coach Cedric Pearl was keeping one eye on the sidelines, as well. Future promise was there, too, in massive form. Marcelys Jones, the 6-foot-4, 315-pound offensive...

Tom Archdeacon: UD rowers determined to make a difference
 The first time she saw the photo of the missing brown-eyed girl it mesmerized her.

Tom Archdeacon: New Flyers coach unfazed by roster, coaching vacancies
 You know how the Easter parable goes: They roll back the stone and the tomb is empty. Well, Anthony Grant returned Monday from his trip back to Oklahoma City to see his wife and kids over the Easter weekend and when he got back to the Dayton Flyers basketball program he certainly didn’t find it empty, but there were a couple of noticeable...

Tom Archdeacon: The sack man sings for Central State Marauders
 He gave the perfect description. “My coaches here was mouth-dropped,” John Franklin said. “They was shocked.
