8th Grade Football Dominates Opponents to Become Champs
The 8th grade football season began with a scrimmage at Galion and gave a good indication of the toughness the Warriors possessed as they scored four touchdowns in the victory. As the season continued, the team only improved and held their opponents in yardage and points. When the season came to a conclusion, the Warriors were 7-0. The only time they were ever behind an opponent was at Shelby, 7-6, but that eventually became an Ontario, 30-21 victory. Those Warriors outscored their opponents 222-73 in total points this season.

The final contest had Ontario matched against Sandusky who had a 1 loss record and Ontario trying to keep their undefeated streak alive. Sandusky had a lot of speed, but with a strong running game and some big defensive plays, Ontario beat Sandusky, 32-20 and finished the season as the undefeated 8th grade outright NOL champs! Great job men!

Class Visits Sycamore Run Farm
