The Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes started out slow, but they finished in a big way by defeating the New Lexington Lady Panthers 57-46 in their season opener.

The Trimble Tomcats were no strangers to second half heroics: they trailed at the half in each of their previous two games. However, that second half push was nowhere to be found tonight against Norwalk St. Paul.

The Ohio men’s basketball team had three different players score in double-figures, but they couldn’t hang on as they fell to Belmont, 83-81, on Saturday.

Despite a valiant comeback attempt, the Ohio University volleyball team fell to Dayton in five sets (25-20, 25-22, 17-25, 13-25, 15-9) Friday night at the Frerick’s Center in Dayton.

After a pair of disappointing seasons, the Meigs basketball programs are looking to bounce back this season.

Looking Back

The Athens Bulldogs have been an offensive powerhouse all season long, averaging over 60 points per game in the regular season.

Alexander High School saw both its boys’ and girls’ basketball teams finish around the middle of the pack in the TVC-Ohio last season. The Lady Spartans finished in fourth with a 5-5 conference record, while the boys ended the season in third place with a 4-6 record in conference play.

Last season, the Nelsonville-York boys team surprised many with their push towards the Schottenstein Center. Few fans expected them to make it past the first round, and even less expected them to get their revenge over Crooksville.

It was closer than they may have liked, but the Ohio men’s basketball came away with the 69-60 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff Tuesday night in the Convo.
