In front of a standing room only crowd at Zanesville’s John D. Sulsberger Memorial Stadium, Trae Williams led Athens to a 41-20 playoff victory over Tri-Valley by flaunting his skills on both sides of the ball.

On the 44th anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in sports history, the number 75 was written on the left shoulder of Marshall swimmers and divers.

With a 3-0 (25-20, 25-20, 25-14) sweep of Bowling Green on Friday, the Ohio Bobcats clinched the Mid-American Conference regular season title for the second consecutive season.

The Ohio Bobcats hockey team’s 13th win of the season came quite differently than the majority of the first 12, a 2-1 overtime victory over the No. 4 Lindenwood Lions.

By this time, it’s no secret that Saul Phillips will be coaching in his first regular season game at Ohio on Saturday at 2 p.m., but his opponent in Appalachian State has a new coach with Jim Fox in his first season with the Mountaineers.

Though both teams had plenty of postseason experience, Jackson and St. Francis Desales had only met one other time in history.

In a battle of power of speed versus power, Desales’s speed won the matchup as the Ironmen fell 24-14.

Eight minutes: that is how long the Beechcroft Cougars chewed off the clock on the first drive of the game.
