OHSAA Board of Directors Approves Expansion Proposal
COLUMBUS, Ohio – After months of discussion and meetings around Ohio to gather feedback, the Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors unanimously approved a proposal Thursday morning to utilize a new formula to determine how many divisions will be offered for postseason tournaments. The change affects OHSAA General Sports Regulation 17 and will result in girls and boys soccer now having five divisions, while girls volleyball, girls and boys basketball, softball and baseball will all have seven divisions. In those sports, Division I and Division II will only include 64 schools.
Cleveland Glenville rolls to state title win 38-3 over Kettering Alter
Last night, before 3,662 fans in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, Cleveland Glenville was able to take down Kettering Alter by a 28-3 score. That was never in doubt.
Things started out well for the Knights as they stopped D’Shawntae Jones for no gain, then it appeared that Ruel Tomlinson went 92 yards for the Tarblooders first score of the game, but a holding penalty, the first of eight penalties that Glenville would commit, nullified the touchdown. Glenville would shake the flag, and slowly they would work the ball all the way down to the Knights 16-yard line. From there, on the fourth play of the drive, Tomlinson rushed to his left and did not stop until he was in the end zone to make this a 6-0 game.
Marion Local Steamrolls Dalton for 14th State Title, 38-0
It started well enough for Dalton, before Marion Local settled into a dominating performance over the next quarter and a half. The Dalton Bulldogs opened the game with a 9-play, 43 yard drive spanning the first 4:15 of the game before Colin Pearson's 4th down pass fell harmlessly incomplete. Marion Local lived up to their name, as the Flyers flew down the field on a quick 8-play drive, the penultimate play being a 4th down conversion. The next play, an 8-yard run by Kyle Otte, good for six.

Massillon Tigers win the division two state title with a 7-2 win over Akron Hoban
Last night at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, two Ohio football powerhouses had the pads popping, and they were electrifying the 14,846 that were in attendance, not with offense but with defense. The two offensive juggernauts combined for a total of 298 yards as defense was the king in the state championship game. Overall, just nine points were scored, with seven of them coming on offensive plays. That play was a touchdown by Massillon Tiger Mylen Lenix, a six-yard scamper with 6:00 left in the first half. The point-after kick from Vincent Keller gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead that they would never give up. The touchdown was set up when Chase Bond blocked the Knights punt. The only scoring that the Knights could put on the scoreboard was when Tanner Mintz got help from Cartier Wiliams to sack DaOne Ownes with 1:40 left in the half, making the score 7-2.
