Come grow with us!Friends of Les Feldick 263903 ERIC GUTIERREZSTAFF WRITERPastor Tim Grosshans took a deep breath as he stood among other audience members who were listening to President Donald Trump deliver his State of the Union Address. He savored the moment and thought about how lucky he was to be there. The thing that hit me is what a privilege I had to be in that room, Grosshans said. It was really a one in a 300 million chance that I would be one of the folks to be able to sit in that room and hear the president speak. Grosshans, a senior pastor at First Baptist Church of Winter Garden, said he was invited to attend the State of the Union Address after he got a call from Sen. Marco Rubios office. Ive been a big fan of Marco Rubio; he was my pick for president, Grosshans said. Rubio has actually been here to the church on a couple of different occasions. His outreach director is a personal friend of mine. Before the address started, Grosshans mingled with other attendees and got to meet reigning Miss America Cara Mund. She was really sweet, Grosshans said. She was real chatty (and) having the time of her life. She was just taking it all in. Grosshans thought the presi dent delivered a good speech that was well received. However, he said some people in the room that day may have thought differently. The partisan divide was palpable, (and) I was saddened by that, Grosshans said. I would understand that there were some policy things that they disagreed with but like I said, the partisan divide is sad. In addition to a speech from the president, attendees also heard from Ji Seong-ho, a man who defected from North Korea on a pair of wooden crutches. Another inspiring moment was the young man from North Korea who had lost his legs, Grosshans said. He had a set of crutches that he held up that he had (used to) travel across (North Korea). Although the experience is one he wont ever forget, this wasnt the first time Grosshans had seen a president in person. In fact, Grosshans has had the opportunity to meet presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and Bill Clinton. (Bush) actually came to First Baptist Church of Orlando when I was there, Grosshans said. That was great fun fooling with the Secret Service. I had such fun with them. They were just a bunch of good ol guys. We were laughing and cutting up, and when Bush showed up, its like a steel rod snapped in their backs. They just went from casual young guys to meaning business. Grosshans didnt get to meet Trump that day, however, he did sit 12 seats away from First Lady Melania Trump. Shes as good looking in person as she is on television, he said.Winter Garden pastor attended Trumps SOTU Courtesy photoFirst Baptist Church of Winter Garden Senior Pastor Tim Grosshans met with Sen.

He excelled at pranks and jokes, some too inappropriate to share in a newspaper. Although, were he the one writing his own obituary, he likely would have considered making an exception if only to ensure a smile on someones face. So heres to Mr. Kelley, a retired Ocoee fire lieutenant who died Feb. 4 after a battle with thyroid cancer that included fearsome dragons and epic sword fights. Mr. Kelley, also known as Stumpy to his friends and colleagues for his short stature, is remembered fondly as none other than the greatest guy on earth to his lov ing wife, Charlene Kelley.SERVING THE COMMUNITYHe was a very loving husband and father, said Charlene, who enjoyed a 27-year marriage to her husband. He was an amazing friend to everyone he was close to. He would give you the shirt off of his back or the last dollar in his pocket. He absolutely loved to make you laugh. He could make a joke out of anything. His jokes you would just sit there and think, Oh my gosh, I cant believe he just said that. It was those type of jokes. But he was just an allaround great guy; the greatest guy on earth. Mr. Kelley was born on Aug. 23, 1967, in Winter Garden, and graduated from West Orange High School. He lived most of his life in the city of Ocoee and served the Ocoee community with the citys fire department for 24 years. He started working at the department as a volunteer firefighter after listening to various stories of how the firefighters had helped save people. It wasnt long before a few firefighters employed at the station at the time took him under their wing and helped him become a full-fledged firefighter in 1992. Mr. Kelley worked his way up from firefighter and became an engineer, and later was promoted DANIELLE HENDRIXBLACK TIE EDITOR HORIZON WEST Legendary mobster Al Capone always said he supplied a demand. Now, a restaurant inspired by his story plans to supply the Hamlin area with coal-fired pizza. 23 Restaurant Services, which also operates the Fords Garage restaurant chain, announced this week that it is opening the second Capones Coal Fired Pizza storefront in late 2018. Capones is a Prohibition erathemed restaurant, true to the type of establishment Capone himself might have frequented, restaurant officials said. The ambiance is set through warm wood and iron accents, exposed brick coal-fired ovens, Tiffany glass chandeliers, a speakeasystyle bar and artwork of the mobster himself. Perhaps the signature feature Capones boasts is an under ground vault encased in glass beneath the dining-room floor. This stems back to the 2014 construction of the original location in Fort Myers: The vault was created from a hole that an old elevator shaft had left in the floor. In Fort Myers, the former elevator shaft now acts as a model of Al Capones mysterious vault in the floor of the restaurant, with an engraved plaque explaining the story. The Hamlin location will measure 6,000 square feet, and the photography to be featured in it was done in Alcatraz where Capone was imprisoned to capture the essence of his jail cell. We want to create a dining experience and not just a meal with all of our restaurants, said Marc Brown, president of 23 Restaurant Services, which operates Capones and several other restaurant concepts. Hamlin is an excellent location for Capones and Fords Garage because of the combination of families and professionals in the community. Aside from paying homage aesthetically to the Prohibition era and incorporating Capones story, the restaurant is known for its 800-degree coal-fired ovens and pizza so good it should be illegal. Aside from pizza, other menu items include Italian favorites such as antipasto, bruschetta and Mama Capones meatballs, as well as coal-fired sandwiches, housemade pasta, custom calzones and salads. Also offered are Capones favorite cocktails and selections of draft beer, red and white wine and more. Restaurant Services dedication to creating memorable experiences for its customers is why were eager for them to join the Hamlin community, said Scott Boyd, President of Boyd Development Corporation, the developer of Hamlin. Capones is a unique concept that residents and visitors will very much enjoy. to the rank of lieutenant in 2012 before he retired in June 2017. A HEART OF GOLDOcoee Fire Department Battalion Chief Yancy Cleveland, who supervised Mr. Kelley, recalled his dedication to his work, patriotism and involvement in community organizations, for which he spearheaded several fundraisers and initiatives. He was very dedicated to his family, his profession in the fire service and his service to the community, Cleveland said. He liked the idea of making a differ ence. He also did a lot for military veterans; he was very patriotic. He was definitely a man who loved his country and was very involved with the Home for Heroes organization and Habitat for Humanity. Although Mr. Kelley was not a military veteran, his younger brother was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marines after suf fering a leg injury, Charlene said. He was very big on the Homes for Heroes program, she recalled. I know at one point, he helped some firefighters that had gone and built wheelchair ramps. If you needed help with anything, he never hesitated. His personality was beautiful. He never tried to think negatively; he was always positive. He was my best friend and he was my soul mate and there will never be anyone to replace him. I couldnt have asked for a better person to be the father of my kids. Mr. Kelley was interred Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Gotha. He is survived by his wife, Charlene Kelley; his 20-year-old daughter, Courtney Marie-Chaput; and his 11-yearold son, Jacob Bryar Kelley.He was my best friend and he was my soul mate and there will never be anyone to replace him.

For more on Health Observed, email us at all like to save a little money. From Black Friday deals to BOGO specials at the grocery store, trimming excess expenses feels good. Many dont realize there also are opportunities to stay healthy while cutting medical expenses. Here are four ways to trim your health care budget: 1. Avoid the ER The emergency room is the most expensive place to receive treatment and should only be used when you truly have an emergency. Urgent care and walk-in clinics cost a fraction of a trip to the ER. Theyre ideal for conditions such as sprains, colds, u-like symptoms, rashes, animal bites and minor broken bones like ngers and toes. Here in Central Florida, GuideWell Emergency Doctors is a great lower-cost alternative to the ER because its priced like an urgent care while able to treat both minor and more serious health concerns with board-certied emergency doctors, on-site labs, EKG, radiology and more. 2. Ask about Lower-Cost Medications For some conditions there may be several medications that do the same thing but have drastically different prices. Ask your doctor if theres a generic or lower-cost alternative to your expensive brand name medications. Some pharmacies may offer certain generic medications at no cost. You also can save money with most insurers by ordering a 90-day supply through the mail. 3. Use Free Preventive Care Benets Because of the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans pay the full cost of several preventive care services including a yearly checkup, u shots and other routine vaccinations, and blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol tests. Depending on your age, cancer screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies are also covered. Getting regular checkups is a good way to identify and address possible medical issues before they become more severe (and more costly.) 4. Shop Around You shop around for other pricy items, so why not health services? Your costs for a medical service may vary greatly depending on where its performed, which is why its important to shop around beforehand. For starters, make sure you always go to a doctor or facility that is in your insurance plans network. Next, investigate how much you will be responsible for at different locations. Florida Blue members can visit the member website or app to search for pricing and quality information of nearby facilities for services such as MRIs, common surgeries and ofce visits. Health care can be expensive, but you may save hundreds or possibly thousands of dollars this year if you just follow these four suggestions.

The production blends pieces of Dahls Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the movie Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with new material. For this production, three actors Patrick DuChene, Jacob Gonzalez and Aidan Wamsley all will play double-casted roles meaning they each play two sep arate characters. DuChene and Wamsley each are double-casted for Willy Wonka and Mr. Bucket, and Gonzalez is double-casted for Charlie and Mike TV. How does double-casting work? DuChene: Aiden and I are double-casted, so when he is playing Willy Wonka, I will be playing Mr. Bucket. And then the next show, when Im playing Wonka hes (Mr. Bucket), so we go back and forth. How challenging is it to memorize the lines for two separate characters? DuChene: You really have to separate the two characters, because it could get confusing studying both characters at once. Gonzalez: In my situation, my two characters are always in the same scene. That poses a little dif ficulty trying to remember whose lines Im supposed to be saying. Wamsley: Its easier with two people rehearsing their characters together, because you can collaborate with each other and figure out what works and what doesnt. Its really fun. What was your favorite scene? DuChene: My favorite scene would be when the characters get to the factory and are shown the chocolate room for the first time. Theres a lot of humor in that scene, and you realize how little Willy Wonka actually cares about these children because he just does his own thing. Gonzalez: Mine is when Char lie finally finds the golden ticket after multiple tries. In that scene, hes thinking its his last chance to find one. When he finally gets the ticket, hes the most excited hes ever been in his entire life, because he hasnt had much, and its fun to portray that excitement. Wamsley: My favorite scene is the tunnel scene. Its was my favorite scene in the Gene Wilder Willy Wonka movie. Its really spooky and dark, and its very fun to do. If you were Charlie, and you just won a chocolate factory, what would you do with it? DuChene: I would invite every single person I know to help me. It says in the story that the Wonka factory has several thousand rooms. I wouldnt know what to do with that kind of space. Gonzalez: Id definitely bring my friends and family with me, because if I didnt, it would just be me and the Oompa Loompas and the chocolate. Wamsley: I would go into business school and study economics, (because) Id be an 11-year-old boy owning a large factory. Time is a precious thingThe West Orange Theatre Departments production of Roald Dahls Willy Wonka opens Feb. 15. IF YOU GOROALD DAHLS WILLY WONKAWHEN: 7 p.m. Feb. 15 to 17; 2:30 p.m. Feb. 17 and 18 WHERE: West Orange High School, 1625 Beulah Road, Winter Garden INFORMATION: THESPIANS SEEK DONATIONSThe West Orange Theatre Depart ment is seeking donations to help take its production of Bright Star on the road to the Florida State Thespian Festival and the International Thespian Festival. Bright Star is a bluegrass musical written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell. The department presented a production of the musical in the fall, and it will be the rst high school to secure the rights to perform it, said depart ment Director Tara Whitman. Whitman applied in the fall to have the departments production of Bright Star be performed at the Main Stage at the Florida State Thespian Festival in March and at the International Thespian Festival in June. What a Main Stage is is if you get selected, you take your entire show on the road (and) on tour just like a professional theatre company, Whitman said. We have to pack up every costume, every lighting instrument, all of our microphones, all of the students, all of the parents, all of the food and we go. We perform the show for an audience at the (Florida) State (Thespian) Festival and the International (Thespian Festival) this summer. Whitman said its an honor to be able to perform Bright Star at the Florida State Thespian Festival, adding that this is the secondconsecutive year the school has achieved the opportunity. This is the rst time the department was selected to perform at the Inter national Thespian Festival. Internationals is the top thing that any high-school theater could win, Whitman said. Weve won a state championship and a world championship all in the same year with the same show. The department needs help raising money to take the show on the road.

Marie, as she was known by most, was born in Gardner, West Virginia, and in 1958 moved to what was then the pristine shores of Lake Apopka with her second husband Haven (deceased). Although Florida became her home, she loved going back to visit the mountains of West Virginia whenever possible. She was the eldest girl in a family of 10 siblings and began working at age 14 for Lisagors Department Store in Princeton, West Virginia, as a counter hostess. She had an eye for fashion and a natural way with people that led to her becoming a clothes buyer. This gave her the opportunity to travel to fashion houses and clothing shows in places such as New York and St. Louis. Marie was an avid reader and believed education was a gift to be savored. While raising her two girls, she completed her GED through Mid Florida Tech and started an associates degree at Valencia Community College. The majority of her career was spent in various clerical roles for Florida Gas Co. and Florida Power Corporation (now Duke Energy), where she developed a wanderlust for travel that took her to all but two of the seven continents. Her real passions though, were her faith, her family and her community. She loved people, particularly the elderly, and she dedicated the majority of her retirement years as an elder advocate through AARP. Holding various leadership roles with AARP at both the district and state levels, she traveled throughout the state of Florida and made regular trips to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., to help craft elder-care legislation. Her advocacy and passion for her beloved West Orange County led her to the West Orange Chamber of Commerce, where she became a Lifetime Ambassador. She was also an active member of VFW Post No. 2093. She loved gardening, cook ing, playing washboard in the AARP band, bowling (Orlando Champion for Mixed Doubles in 1963 and 1964), and college football especially the UCF Knights (gooooo KNIGHTS!). Widowed twice and a cancer sur vivor, her faith in the Lord knew few, if any, limits. She was a lifelong Methodist who understood fully her calling to reflect the light of Christ into the world. She loved volunteer ing over the years at Pine Hills UMC in various roles as youth chaperone, choir member and Vacation Bible School assistant. As the effects of aging made it difficult for her to attend worship services, she transferred her membership to St. Lukes UMC, where she volunteered by writing greeting cards to those who were shut-ins or going through illness. She would often say, They may not know me, but it doesnt matter. God knows them, and I can pray for them. She is preceded in death by husbands William Wesley Smith and Haven J. Williams and is survived by: daughters, Karen Wesley Williams and Alice Marie Williams, along with her adopted daughters, Pammie OBannon and Debby Zutter; sister Lillie Mae White (West Virginia); brother, James H. Johnson (Tennessee); and dozens of nieces, nephews and greats all of whom she dearly loved. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 a.m. Feb. 17, at St. Lukes UMC, 4851 S. Apopka-Vineland Road, Orlando, FL 32819. In lieu of flow ers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Lukes UMC designating either Shepherds Hope or the East Winter Garden (EWG) Initiative. WEST ORANGE OBITUARIES TINA MARIE IRWIN DIED JAN. 12, 2018.Tina Marie Irwin (Ping/Peters) was born on Feb. 20, 1959, in Indiana. She lived in Winter Garden for 45 years and just recently moved to Arizona with her husband of 35 years, David Irwin, to enjoy retirement. She passed away suddenly from the flu on Jan. 12, 2018. She is survived by her husband, David; mother, Sara Ping Robbins; son and daughter-in-law, Tom and Amy Peters; stepchildren, Jason Irwin, Greg Irwin and Jill Irwin; and three grandchildren; sister and brother-in-law, Patsy and Ronnie Starling; sister, Glenda and the late Ray Glass; brother, Ralph; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father, Harold Ping; brothers, Junior, Jim Bob, Greg, William (Bezo), Ronnie, and sister, Penny, the late Joe Kline; and niece, Samantha Glass. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20, at Temple Freewill Baptist Church, 1208 E. Story Road, Winter Garden, Florida.


There were plenty of unknowns for Jeff Carine when he took over the golf program at Foundation Academy. The team had one girl Foundation Academy eighth-grader Olivia Lu and it remained to be seen how the young golfer would adapt to playing from the boys tees. It didnt take long, however, for any questions about Lus game to be answered. The first meet was probably one of the highlights of the season just because you dont really know whats going to happen, Carine recalled. As you get toward the end, and the scores start coming in, and you begin to see (Lus) score she shot 43 for nine holes, and I just went, Wow, thats really solid. Lu medaled in that first match and continued to play well all season for the Lions. Since varsity season ended, she has continued to play well in her individual outings on local junior tours such as the Premiere Junior Golf Tour, the Top 50 Scholarship Golf Tour and the Florida Junior Tour. Lu, who won an event in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour in August, won two more events in January a Top 50 event Jan. 13 at Dubsdread in Orlando and Premiere Tour event a week later at Legends Golf Club in Clermont. Her recent success is even more impressive considering she has only been playing the game for two years. I first started with a golf summer camp just for fun, Lu said. I Olivia Lu, who competed for the Lions boys varsity golf team last fall as an eighth-grader, won two local junior tournaments in January.Foundation eighth-grader making waves in junior golf A group of young men from the West Orange area set a goal, worked hard at it and reaped the rewards. The Renegades Special Olympics basketball team, which consists of seven local men ranging from age 23 to their early 30s, won both their games at the Special Olympics Florida State Basketball Championships Jan. 26 to 27 at The Big House in Tavares. In doing so, the group of West Orange area competitors were crowned state champions in Adult 5-on-5 Division 4. The team was coached by Olivia Banks and Lisa Landsberger, and it began practicing once a week at West Orange High School in October. I think they had a lot of fun, Banks said. They applied what they practiced and saw it was actually working. They really cant wait to start the season up again. Banks moved to Central Florida from the Miami area recently, but has been involved with Special Olympics for years. It was her first time coaching basketball, although she has played all her life, and she said she was impressed by the dedication of the team. I would make them work SPORTSFEBRUARY 15, 2018 West Orange sophomore Solomon Smith has been a welcome addition to the varsity wrestling team.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHTSophomore wrester Solomon Solo Smith was bumped up to varsity at West Orange recently and has been a welcome addition for the Warriors. Not only has Smith a rst-time wrestler this winter put together a 5-2 record since moving to varsity, he also placed second at the Michael Hutchins Invitational at Bishop Moore in January. His work ethic and good attitude have made a strong impression on head coach Kristen Iannuzzi and her sta.SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSSolomon Smith THE BASICSAge: 15 Year: Sophomore Height: 5-foot-5 Weight class: 152 pounds Other sport: Football Football position: LinebackerWhat are the biggest things your wrestling coaches have taught you? To stay loyal and stay humble. They taught me to encourage other people. Do you remember in which game you saw your first var sity football action? It was the Lyman game (Nov. 9). Our starting linebacker got injured, so I had to step in. I was really nervous, but I was excited at the same time. He got injured on the first or second drive, so I played the rest of the game. Which pro or college football team is your favorite? The Philadelphia Eagles they just won the Super Bowl. Congratulations with whom did you watch the Super Bowl? I was watching with my dad (David Smith) at my house with one of my teammates. I was honestly surprised (the Eagles won). My dad is from Philadelphia. He was the most excited, definitely. Who is your favorite super hero? Spider-Man is my favorite superhero. Whats your favorite incar nation of Spider-Man? The movies with Tobey Maguire. They were the first ones I watched and the first ones who introduced me to (the character). STEVEN RYZEWSKI Why did you decide to join the wrestling team this year? My coach, Coach Geno Thompson, was also a coach for the football team. He was telling some of the football players that they should join wrestling. So I joined wrestling because of coach Thompson. Was the conditioning and training for wrestling hard in comparison to football? Its really hard I would say more than football. Its a lot more running and a lot more endurance training. Are you glad that you joined wrestling? Im glad I joined wrestling, its very fun. I enjoy the bond you have with your teammates. What have you noticed are you strengths and areas for improvement on the mat? Im good with my throws, and I think I should work on my ground game escaping pins and stuff. Im not an easy coach, to say the least, Banks said. They improved a lot from the first time I saw them. I was really impressed by all of them. The Renegades ran a manto-man defense and worked on setting screens on offense. This helped them achieve success in the area and state competitions after a rough couple of games in the county tournament against a higher level (Division 3) of competition. In Tavares, the Renegades won their first game by a score of 30-22 and their second 43-29. Banks said the Renegades success was a total-team effort but that Shelby Forester stood out as the teams most enthusiastic player cheering and rooting on teammates whether he was in the game or on bench and that Matthew Letcher was the teams leader. Banks said the experience of volunteering with the Renegades was rewarding. It was great for me, Banks said. Id never done this before, being a head coach, so I was unsure of how they would respond. To build that trust and that camaraderie with them they confided in me, and thats a big deal. Regardless of the score, just that we built a relationship to me was the most important thing, she said.BasketballFROM PAGE 13 MEET THE RENEGADES14 Shelby Forester 24 Ryan Letcher 25 Taylor Simpson 31 Patrick Murdock 32 Tyler Venkersammy 33 Christian Emrich 43 Matthew Letcher Head coach: Olivia Banks Assistant coach: Lisa LandsbergerTwo local schools celebrated National Signing Day Feb. 7 with ceremonies to commemorate seniors signing National Letters of Intent to compete at the collegiate level. West Orange High and Foundation Academy celebrated the signings of 12 student-athletes, combined. Some other seniors, including from CFCA and Ocoee High, signed during the fall, and some are still assessing their opportunities and expect to sign in the coming weeks. thought it was really fun. I was only doing it once a week, and I looked forward to it. Lu began training with her first coach and within the last year, she has started to regularly play events nearly every weekend. Her current coach is Andrew Park, and she trains with Park out of Orange County National. She has six tournament wins to her credit so far. The eighth-grader is off to an impressive start, but she knows there is plenty to learn. I wouldnt call myself good yet, because I know there are still so many better people than me, but I realized that I was pretty decent when I won my first tournament, Lu said. She also acknowledged it was tough beginning the var sity season playing from the boys tees but she got used to it quickly and now feels comfortable playing from either tee. Carine said one of the coolest parts of Lu being the only girl on the team last season was the way she gelled with the team. What was really fun was just to see how much the team grew to love her like a little sister, Carine said. The team got to be very close over the course of the season and right away, there was a lot of respect for the quality of her game. Lu said she is hard at work on all aspects of her game and hopes to continue to progress into more competitive events. She is also thankful to her par ents, who bear the burden of getting her to events each week end and footing the bills. I am so glad and I appreciate them so much its not cheap, Lu said. Carine, who anticipates returning again next fall to coach the Lions, said he will be excited to see how his young golfer progresses and how she could do in the FHSAA State Series as a freshman. The quality of her short game, the consistency of her ball striking she just knows how to play the game, Carine said. She knows how to get the golf ball in the hole. She has a tremendous amount of resilience. She has a bad hole, and she comes right back.LuFROM PAGE 13Local seniors ink NLIs on Signing Day FOUNDATION ACADEMY Kenny Ames Notre Dame College, football Lance Axson Campbell University, football WEST ORANGE HIGH Andrew Brickweg West Florida, football Adelyn Claborn University of South Carolina Upstate, womens soccer Ronald Dimatteo University of Mary, football Demond Harp University of Mary, football Brennan Harrell Franklin Pierce University, football Dametri Hill Murray State University, football Franklin Jackson Florida Atlantic University, football Savannah Sellers Ohio State, womens crew Kayla Strehle Spalding University, womens soccer Simon Sutherland Mount Union University, football

Things looked bleak for the West Orange girls basketball team early in the Class 9A, District 3 Final Feb. 9. A second-quarter deficit the Warriors faced ballooned to as many as 20 points. But something clicked with the halftime adjustments West Orange coach Shrell Chamberlain made. The Warriors who trailed 30-14 at the break rallied to outscore the Wekiva Mustangs 34-15 the rest of the way. With that, West Orange's 48-45 victory gave the program its first district title since 2012. We just went into the locker room and told the girls, Youre not playing your game, Chamberlain said. Christina Kline drained five three-pointers on the night including four in the second half to lead all scorers with 17 points. Point guard Morgan Beacham also stuffed the stat sheet for the War riors (23-4), scoring 10 points to go along with seven rebounds, seven assists and five steals. Sarah Placide scored nine points to pair with 12 rebounds. It was the third meeting of the teams, but perhaps not the last. Wekiva won the first meeting, but West Orange has bounced back to take the next two. Should both teams prevail in their regional quarterfinal match-ups Feb. 15, they would meet again in the regional semifinals. STEVEN RYZEWSKIIt was quiet in the gym, and then everybody was really loud when I made it. Tya scored 11 more points in a district final loss to Orlando Christian Prep to bring her to 1,026 points so far in her Eagles career. On the season, Tya is averaging 18.8 points per game to go along with 4.1 steals per game and 3.2 rebounds her scoring and steals averages lead the team. Despite the relative inexperience of the team at Legacy Tya is programs only player who plays travel ball year-round the team has had success and is in the regional playoffs for a second consecutive season. The Eagles (11-9) finished as district runners-up last week and will face Keswick Christian Feb. 15 in the FHSAA Class 3A Regional Semifinals.Legacy junior is girls hoops programs rst 1,000-point scorerTya Freeman eclipsed the 1,000-point threshold during the seminals of last weeks Class 3A, District 3 Tournament.STEVEN RYZEWSKISENIOR SPORTS EDITOR When Blessing Freeman was hired in 2015 by Legacy High Athletic Director Jarrett Wiggers to start a girls basketball program, Wiggers impressed upon her that because of the small student body at the charter school she would be teaching many of the girls how to play the game. Freeman, who played basketball collegiately at Mississippi State and also coached in college, prepared herself for the task. Wiggers words mostly held true, with one exception thenfreshman Tya Freeman. I went to (Wiggers) and said, You know, theres somebody here that knows a little bit of basketball, Freeman said. I think (Tya) was a little bit of light for me coming in. Although they share a last name, the player and coach first met at the programs first open gym in fall 2015. Three seasons later, Tya now a junior has become the first player in program history to reach 1,000 points. The dynamic point guard cleared the milestone by scor ing 25 points in a district semifinal game Feb. 6 at Mount Dora Christian taking her from 990 points to begin the night to 1,015 to end it. It was quite an occasion for the junior who, a few games earlier, had not even been aware she was closing in on the accomplishment. I was a little surprised 1,000 points is a big deal, and I had no idea I was that close, Tya said. It was pretty cool, because my 1,000th point was on a free throw.
