A two year starter in basketball and baseball, Creg Jantz was Midviewís MVP and All Erie Shore Conference in both sports his senior year.

A two year starter in basketball, Cregís senior season was outstanding. He had ten games in which he scored over 20 points including a career-high 31 points at home against Elyria. He finished second in the conference in scoring that year, averaging 17.2 points in 13 games and was named first team All-Erie Shore Conference, All-Lorain County, and third team All-District. His four teammates on the All-Erie Shore team went on to play for Div. I universities, which confirms the caliber of play represented by the Erie Shore conference.

Creg started two years, for the Middies on the diamond as a catcher and outfielder, capped off by a prolific senior season when he batted .456. He threw out 16-of 24 potential base stealers on his way to a first team All-Conference nod, and posted a .987 fielding percentage as catcher. He hit .538 in 12 Erie Shore games with 15 RBIís. He appeared in the top ten on six of the Middies all-time single season records lists: batting average (.456); doubles (8), RBIís (20); on base percentage (.613); least strikeouts (5); and infield fielding percentage (.987). His batting average ranked second all-time at the time.

After entertaining basketball and baseball offers from multiple colleges at several levels, Creg Jantz accepted a baseball scholarship to Ashland University (NCAA, Division II). He hit .436, as a sophomore, leading the Eagles in hits (17), RBIís (14) and homeruns (3) as they finished 10-4-1. His three long balls came at a Youngstown State University tournament, which included match-ups against Akron University and the University of Pittsburgh. He ended that year with a .326 average, during the fall season, including 28 RBIís and 50 hits in 46 games. The career .300 hitter batted .343 with a team-high 42 hits his final season. A two-year team captain and four-year letter winner, Creg was named the teamís Most Valuable Player and was a second team All-Great Lakes Valley Conference selection his senior year.
