It’s been a long time coming for the Oak Harbor Rockets.

Despite having a good program in place for the better part of the last 15 years, Oak Harbor girls basketball had not won a sectional title since 2003.

That ended when the Rockets defeated league foe Margaretta, 59-31, in the Division III sectional final at Port Clinton High School.

Star forward Andrea Cecil led the way with 28 points as she used her athleticism to elude the Polar Bear defense and score at will. Fourteen of her points came in the first half when Oak Harbor took control and built a 34-18 lead heading into the half.


ByBroadcasters often say a great team finds a way to win even when it does not play well. That often means grinding out a victory when pushed to the limit.

Genoa’s found a way in their 56-47 victory over rival Woodmore in the Division III girls’ sectional final last weekend was a prime example of that.

It is the second consecutive sectional crown for the Comets and third in Coach Mike DeStazio’s four years at the helm. It’s the program’s seventh in the last 10 years.


If there’s one thing that comes out of qualifying for the state swimming and diving championships as a freshman, it makes you want to go back again and again and again.

That was the position Eastwood’s Alyssa Decker put herself in last season, when she competed at the Division II state meet as a freshman in the 100-yard butterfly.

She qualified again in the same event this season – and also in the 200 individual medley – and she’s already thinking about next year after coming up short of the finals and consolation finals in both events last week.
