High School Football: Brunswick at Elyria


ELYRIA — Being in the right spot at the right time will never mean the same for Mikah Price following Friday night’s heart-pounding win by Elyria over Brunswick.

NORTH RIDGEVILLE — Midview did a lot of the same things other opponents have attempted in an effort to slow down North Ridgeville junior running back Demario McCall — stacking the box, putting two guys on him and stalking him around the field. But the Middies finally found a way to limit the Rangers star, Read More…

Elyria Catholic junior Becky Horvath does not look at herself as any kind of a trailblazer. She knows she has a job to do and is more concerned with making herself better.

H.S. Football: Midview knocks off Avon 49-42 in instant classic


EATON TWP. — It’s hard for two highly touted teams to play a game that lives up to the hype, but Avon and Midview exceeded all expectations Friday night.

Three plays later, Cody Shields scored his Read More…

WESTLAKE — Typically a high school football game doesn’t begin with a starter’s gun, but Friday night’s Homecoming track meet between Westlake and Olmsted Falls wasn’t missing much else. While they didn’t flatten the corsages or t-bone the float, the Bulldogs did wreck the football portion of the Demons’ weekend with a rousing 51-45 Southwestern Read More…
