Cassidy Bosch receives athletic scholarship from SE District board
JACKSON — Cassidy Bosch was a three-sport Logan Lady Chiefs standout and was one of the hardest-working and committed student-athletes you’d ever encounter on the Logan High School campus.
That hard work and commitment has paid off.
Bosch, who will play basketball at Capital University, recently received a $500 scholarship from the Southeast District Athletic Board (SEDAB) of the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
The OHSAA annually provides scholarships for outstanding student athletes from its member schools. Each member high school is permitted to submit one senior male and one senior female candidate for scholarship consideration, and each member high school may also submit one senior female minority and one senior male minority candidate.
The OHSAA awards 48 $1,000 scholarships on the state level to student-athletes who have excelled both academically and athletically, and the SEDAB does the same with $500 scholarships on a district basis.
The SEDAB awarded one of its 21 scholarships to Bosch at its recent Scholar-Athlete Banquet in Jackson. Fellow 2016 LHS graduate Nathan Kudlapur received a $500 scholarship as well.
To be nominated, a student must be a graduating senior, have a grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale, must have taken either the ACT or SAT, and must have received a minimum of three varsity letters in one OHSAA-sanctioned sport or four varsity letters in a combination of any two or more OHSAA sanctioned sports.
She had no problem fitting into all of the above criteria.
Bosch, who graduated in May, will attend Capital to play basketball and study nursing after being on the Lady Chiefs volleyball, basketball and track teams.
She earned nine varsity letters at Logan — four in track, three in volleyball and two in basketball — and was an accomplished participant in all three sports.
In basketball, as a 5-foot-8 guard, Bosch was named All-Southeastern Ohio Athletic League as a senior as well as being a two-time Division I All-Southeast District special mention choice.
Last season, she was second in the team in assists (2.5 per game) and third in scoring (7.9), rebounding (6.3), and steals (2.2) while shooting 41 percent from the field. More often than not, she defended the other team’s best offensive player.
She was a vital member of a Logan team that won back-to-back SEOAL championships and back-to-back Division I sectional tournament crowns before the Lady Chiefs fell to Newark in the 2015 district finals and in the 2016 district semifinals back in March.
Bosch was also All-SEOAL in volleyball as a senior and was a versatile, valuable performer on the track team in the pole vault, high jump, sprints and relays.
She is the youngest daughter of Chris (a former coach) and Christy (current assistant superintendent of Logan-Hocking Local Schools) Bosch of Rockbridge… and if Cassidy is anything like her siblings, she’ll also have a successful collegiate athletic and academic career.
Eldest sister Christen (now the Lady Chiefs’ head girls track and cross country coach) was an outstanding pole vaulter at Ohio University after winning two state Division I pole vault medals for the Lady Chiefs. Older sister Carissa had an outstanding career in women’s basketball at Muskingum College, where she was also a high jumper and long jumper on the track and field team.
