Twenty-two receive highest county athletic honor


“She stands among the best swimmers in GHS history. She still holds four school records,” Devon Hoffman said in her introduction. “I have no doubt in my mind she would have been a state champion if she would not have had to jump in the pool at the same time as Lindsay Benko.”

Ramer went on to swim at Florida State where among other accomplishments she was on an ACC-winning 200 medley relay in 1998. She placed in six ACC tournament events and earned a Golden Nole as a freshman.

“That’s an award they give for athletics and academics,” Milun said. “I was truly honored as a freshman to receive it.”

She shared how her career in the sport began.

“I cried when mom took me to swimming lessons,” Milun said. “The lessons were at the same time my brother was going for club swimming. Thinking back there might have been a connection. I made up my mind that I was not going to quit. If my brother could do it so could I.

“I did a lot of laps to get here and I’m very honored. I had great support from my parents, family and friends. I’m blessed.”

Milun is a charge nurse in an operating room at a New Jersey hospital.

Don Ogle earned eight letters in football, basketball and baseball at Goshen, but is probably as well known for his work as an athletic trainer. He was the head trainer at GHS from 1977-86 and he spent time at Goshen College, both as a trainer and helping set up a teaching program.

“Don was confident, conscientious and excessively organized,” Hoffman said. Those qualities make for a solid trainer. What set Don apart was the compassion he showed for athletes.”

Ogle was a two-way starter on the 1966 GHS football team that became the first Redskin squad to defeat Elkhart at Rice Field, he was the starting point guard on the 1966-67 basketball team that finished 17-3 and the starting center fielder on the baseball team that won a sectional title in 1967.
