It was a pretty solid week for spring sports as Red Rider teams captured not one, not two, but THREE district crowns.
The baseball team beat Chippewa 6-5 to capture their 2nd straight district title while the boys and girls track team both took 1st place at the Midview district, making it a clean sweep.
§ The girls track team only won 3 of the 17 events, but placed in all but 1 event, accumulating 127 points on the day, beating 2nd place Triway (115 pts.) and 3rd place Keystone (100 pts.). They improved on their 2012 district showing (85 pts. and 3rd place). They will move on to the Bedford regional this week.
§ The boys track team netted 100 points on the day, besting 2nd place Northwestern (94 pts.) and 3rd place Norwayne (83 pts.) to win the Midview district for a 2nd year in a row. They will move on to the Lexington regional this week.
§ For up-to-date track results this weekend, check out Baumspage.com. The link for boys results is here and girls results here. Good luck to both teams this weekend as they seek to continue the annual tradition of sending multiple athletes to Columbus for the state meet.
§ The baseball team captured their 2nd straight district title this past week by defeating Chippewa, 6-5. The Riders difficult OCC regular season schedule no doubt helped to prepare them for tournament play (as is the case in most sports). The Riders will head to Massillon's Ducky Schroeder Field this Thursday to take on Wickliffe Thursday at 5pm. If they win, they'll return to Massillon Friday to take on the winner of Youngstown Ursuline and Keystone.
§ The baseball team now has 7 regional appearances in program history. First was in 1976, then 1979, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2012 and now 2013. Only the 1976 team made it out of regionals. That team ended as state runner ups.
