The merger between two central Ohio synchronized swimming programs has proven successful, as 24 area girls will be competing in the Junior Olympics Championships from Friday, June 24, though July 2 in Long Island, New York.
When the Ohio High School Athletic Association began combining boys and girls enrollments to determine postseason divisions for cross country in 2013, one of the coaches who expressed disappointed in the decision was Watterson’s Matt McGowan.
The pressure of having the championship on the line brought the best out in both Linden-McKinley High School senior Jeffery Floyd and the Eastmoor Academy boys 1,600-meter relay in the Division II state track and field meet June 3 and 4 at Ohio State.
On its way to the Division II state tournament last season, the Watterson High School baseball team went through the regional that featured teams from the Southwest District and eventually lost to Poland Seminary from the Northeast District in a state semifinal.
Some of the City League's top Division II boys track and field athletes will try to build on standout district performances when they compete in the regional meet Thursday, May 26, and Saturday, May 28, at Lexington.
