MOUNT VERNON — When the Ohio State Buckeyes take on Wichita State tonight in the NCAA regional finals, you can bet they’ll get a healthy boost of spirit from a pair of lifelong fans in Mount Vernon.
“I’ve been a Buckeye all my life,” said 93-year-old Martha Stull, who has resided at The Living Center for the past four years. “Because of that, and graduating from there, I watch all the games. I watch the football and the basketball, but basketball is my favorite, because it’s faster and I can understand it better. I can keep up with it, I guess.”
Stull, who battles macular degeneration these days, has the help of another longtime fan and fellow Living Center resident, 82-year-old Louise LaBenne. Although a little quieter than Stull, she is very knowledgable about basketball as well.
