Congratulations to Carla Siegel ’93 on receiving the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Award. Siegel was selected by the 22 coaches associations and four allied professional organizations that comprise the OHSAA for reflecting the values of sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in her professional responsibilities.
Siegel, a fifth grade teacher of science and reading at the Fort Loramie Local Schools is beginning her 15th season as the Women’s Head Basketball Coach at Fort Loramie High School. Since becoming head coach, Siegel has won 75% of the games her team has played with a record of 272-88. With this record it comes as no surprise that her teams have won seven league championships, 11 district titles, were the 2013 Division four state champions, the first state title for that program.
From the list of awards she has been previously awarded, it is evident that Siegel not only understands the game, but also knows how to coach her team. Since beginning her career, Siegel has been named the District 9 Coach of the Year three times, the SW District Coach of the Year twice, the 2007 Coach of the North-South game, and the 2013 Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association (OHSBCA) Division 4 Coach of the Year.
Upon receiving her award, Siegel said, “I am deeply honored to receive this award from the OHSAA. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to continue my enjoyment and passion for the game of basketball through coaching. I truly believe this award signifies all the hard work and the commitment to excellence of my entire coaching staff and current and former players.”
