Call it a four-peat or a grand slam, by any name or title, the Lake equestrian team recently earned its fourth consecutive state title. The team competes in the Ohio Interscholastic Horse Show Association (OIHSA).
What makes their accomplishment more significant is the fact the team has only been in existence for five years.
"I have never seen a group of girls get along as these girls do. They are always helping each other," said Jenna Workman, who founded the team in 2009 and serves as a coach. "I'm so glad they work so well together and its a great accomplishment for the entire team."
Workman, who coaches the team along with her mother, Connie Workman, is currently a senior at University of Toledo; while her mother also serves as  the chairman of OIHSA District 2.
As a freshman at Lake High School, Jenna Workman was frustrated that Lake didn't have a team, she thus rode for Perrysburg that year and Toledo Christian Academy her sophomore year.

Why Ohio needs a Farm Bill now PDF Print E-mail

This fall, Congress has an important opportunity to create jobs and grow the economy by passing a long-term, comprehensive Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. The Farm Bill impacts every American, every day by providing a wide range of programs that strengthen our nation.
The Farm Bill is crucial to maintaining a strong agriculture sector and an abundant food supply that benefits all Americans.  Over the past two years, producers have faced a multitude of disasters - from drought, to flooding, to blizzards.  These events demonstrate how important the safety net is to keeping producers going strong. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, the Farm Service Agency was able to provide $149,657,306.00 in disaster assistance in Ohio using Farm Bill programs.
A new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would provide a strong crop insurance program, reauthorize the now-expired disaster assistance programs, and provide retroactive assistance for livestock producers.
