Beaumont won it all, but students Beaumont and Cleveland Heights won other awards Saturday
Cleveland Heights High School lost in the quarterfinals to the eventual winners of the 2013 RoboBots Competition, The "Beaumontsters," but students from both schools left the event with prestigious awards. The Alliance for Working Together could have selected nominees from any of the 19 teams from various schools to win the U.S. Air Force award, but its selections were students about both of the schools in Heights. Cleveland Heights senior Bryan Kent and Beaumont junior Elizabeth Stanitz both won the award. The award is given to students who demonstrate leadership qualities in a team, problem-solving atmosphere. Coaches and company sponsors nominated a member of each team, and The Alliance for Working Together, which produces the RoboBots…

The Beaumonsters will travel to the national competition in Indianapolis next month
The 2013 RoboBots team from Beaumont faced West Geauga in the final round for the second year in a row, but this time the Cleveland Heights school brought home a championship. The group of sophomores and juniors dubbed the Beaumonsters spent much of the school year constructing Ramses, a polycarbonate robot with an 18-spike, titanium spinner that powered through six rounds of destruction. The Beaumonsters were lead by biology teacher Gretchen Santo and sponsored by Christopher Tool & Manufacturing Co. of Solon. Beaumont also won the competition's "Coolest Robot" award, selected by their peers. The award was for the team with the robot that had a "you know it when you see it" factor, announcer Ray Somich said. Nineteen teams from schools …

The Beaumont senior is in the running for a National Merit Scholarship
When Tori Kulbago was told she had to report to the principal’s office, she thought she was in trouble. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, what have I done?’” she recalled. The Beaumont School senior was actually about to hear great news — she was a semifinalist for the National Merit Scholarship. “(The principal) told me I was on the list. First I was relieved, and I was also very excited, proud, you know,” Tori, 17, said. Snagging one of the approximately 16,000 semifinalist spots nationwide runs in her family. Her dad won the National Merit Scholarship when he was in high school, she said. “My dad was a National Merit (winner), and he’s a genius type for sure. I’m not so much equal to my dad, but I’m making him proud,” she said. She earned the …

Beaumont knocks off Lake Catholic in NCL dual meet
Beaumont head swimming coach Tania Younkin would love to have more people in the pool, but right now, she’ll have to settle for a team that goes two swimmers deep per each race. Whatever limitations it might present, though, the two-deep system certainly worked well against Lake Catholic as they handled the Cougars, 105-69, Tuesday evening at the Carol and John Butler Aquatic Center of Hathaway Brown in Shaker Heights. “We’re down in numbers this year. … In a meet lineup like today’s meet, you can put three girls in each event, and I can’t even field three girls. So I’ve got two in most events,” Younkin said. “When you go into a meet like that, you’re always a little concerned, but the strength of those No. 1 and 2 girls is what allows us …

Beaumont knocks off defending state champion Lake Catholic
To paraphrase tennis great Vitas Gerulaitis, nobody beats Beaumont’s volleyball team three times in a row, at least not Lake Catholic and not when a trip to the state semifinals is on the line. Behind the attacking play of Lauren Youngblood, Courtney Bowman and Molly Davet, the Blue Streaks knocked off the defending Division II state champion Cougars, 3-1, in the Region 5 final at Stow and reached state competition for the first time in the school’s history. The game scores were 27-25, 25-20, 25-27, 25-18. Beaumont (18-9) will face Columbus Bishop Hartley in a semifinal at 4 p.m. Thursday at Wright State.

Despite losses, coach sees potential on his team
Perhaps the Cleveland Heights girls’ soccer team’s record of 1-5 looks daunting, and the 4-1 loss at Laurel School on Saturday doesn’t inspire much confidence to outsiders, but coach Robbie Helfgott sees a bright future ahead for the Tigers, especially with a few adjustments the team made this week. After all, the Tigers did earn their first victory this week, and a resounding one at that. Cleveland Heights pounced on Euclid, 9-1, on Wednesday as Chloe Sudduth scored five goals and teammates Mariah Williams, Kalah Saunders, Lesley Saunders and Nichelle White joined her in the record book. Goalkeeper Doleisha Moton had four saves. “We just switched to a 4-4-2. The back four were figuring it out. We just made a switch after the Mentor game (…
