If you have not yet seen a quality City League girls’ basketball game, do it.


It can be impressive just watching the state-ranked Start Spartans or their City League foe, the Waite Indians, play basketball.

“We like to keep it competitive and exciting,” Waite coach Manny May said. “That’s our job as coaches, is to get it to the next level. I’m happy the fans are enjoying it.”

The much-anticipated matchup does not happen until Feb. 19 at Waite’s Grant Murray Field House.

“That’s at the end of the season in February when we play Start, but that’s something we’re not even looking forward to that point. I mean, that’s down the road. We’ve got plenty of games before that time before we can assess that game itself,” May said.

Waite remains undefeated in seven games, and this Wednesday the 2-4 Clay Eagles will have the dubious pleasure of hosting their east side rivals.


To most of us, it’s “Eastwood,” but around the state it’s “Pemberville

Eastwood.” “Pemberville Eastwood” got mentioned quite a bit in state-wide media during 2009.

It’s not Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller, Canton McKInley, or Lakewood St. Edward, but it’s getting there.



In another showdown for the top spot in the league, Bethlehem No. 2 captured two games at Stony Ridge on Dec. 21 to increase its lead atop the Wood County Church Dartball League standings to a pair of games.
