Jane Rader Thomasson - MAHOF Class of 2001
A three-sport star at Midview High School from 1977 to 1980, Jane Rader excelled in basketball, track and volleyball. She was unanimously selected All-Lakeland Conference in basketball for three straight years and was named to the AAA Sectional Tournament Team, and was its MVP her junior and senior years. She led the area in scoring with 19.7 points per game as a junior and was the Lakeland Conference’s top scorer (21.2 PPG) and rebounder (17.5 RPG), her senior year.

Track was another sport to Jane’s liking as she set school, conference and county records in the discus, high jump and shot put. She set a Lorain County Pentathlon high jump record and qualified for three events at the Ohio State Track meet. She placed in the high jump and the discus in both her junior and senior years.

As outstanding as she was in basketball and track, it was volleyball that would provide her with her greatest achievements. Jane was a unanimous pick for the Lakeland Conference All-Star Volleyball Team her junior and senior years and was chosen MVP at the Strongsville invitational and would have surely been picked for All-Ohio honors had they existed at that time. Many colleges took note of Jane’s athletic prowess and she was heavily recruited for all three sports, but chose to play Volleyball at Ohio State, and was the first area female athlete to receive a full athletic scholarship to a Big 10 school.

Jane was a four-year starter for the Buckeyes and received the Coaches Award her junior year. She was a co-captain her senior year and was named to the All Tourney Team at the prestigious Louisiana State Tournament.

One of the finest all around athletes to ever attend Midview High School, Jane set records and attained levels of excellence that will stand the test of time.

Jane is currently the head volleyball coach at the Newark Campus of OSU and lives in Newark with her husband, Tom and their three children, Cory, Erin and Anne.
