Betty Geoghegan, Fairmont West High School, Class of 1979 -- 1978 was a memorable year for Dragon women’s sports and for Geoghegan, who earned seven letters while in high school in gymnastics, track and cross country. In that year, she literally set a “very high bar” for future Fairmont women track athletes. She broke, and still holds, the All-Fairmont Schools women’s high jump record of 5’7”. This record, which has stood for almost 40 years, is believed to be the third longest-standing record in All-Fairmont Athletic history for both men and women. Geoghegan and teammate Ginny Moore, were pioneers in cross country when they became the first females to run cross country in Fairmont West history. She inspired other Dragon women to try out for the team and eventually a women’s cross country team was established. Geoghegan teaches math at Montgomery County High School in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, and lives with her husband, Jon, in Lexington.
Kelly McCoy, Fairmont West High School, Class of 1981 – An elite gymnast who set her sights on the 1980 Olympics until an ankle fracture knocked her out of the running, McCoy joined the Fairmont gymnastics team her senior year and went on to be the State Champion in the vault, the bars, and floor exercise at the 1981 Ohio State Gymnastics Championships. She was second on the beam, and won the All-Around Award as the finest female gymnast in Ohio. The team won the OHSAA State title with a score of 198.25 points, which still ranks sixth all-time in state gymnastics competition, and McCoy’s point total of 18.65 in the floor exercise remains an OHSAA record. McCoy is an occupational therapist and lives with her husband, Andy, in North Carolina.
Andy Metzler, Kettering Fairmont High School, Class of 1995 – As a three-year starter on the Men’s Varsity Basketball Team, Metzler was his team’s most valuable player in both his junior and senior years. He scored 1,138 points in his career at Fairmont, which was a career-scoring record that he held for several years until it was broken by Fairmont Athletic Hall of Fame member, Lamar Skeeter. One record that has stood the test of time for the past 23 years is Metzler’s single-game scoring record of 47 points. He achieved this milestone against the Wayne Warriors his senior year. Metzler lives in the Dayton area and is employed in the City of Dayton’s Finance Department.
