The Genoa Community Christian Academy boys’ basketball team is playing its first season in a new league this year.

The Crusaders are competing in the Independent Christian Schools of Ohio/Michigan (ICSOM) league with Monclova Christian Academy, Grand Lake Christian (St. Mary’s), Lima Bible Believers Christian, Fountain City Christian (Bryan), and Bowling Green Christian.

BG Christian recently expanded from a K-8 school to K-12 and is building a new complex, and officials there say they would even like to have football someday.

Monclova Christian Academy plays many Toledo Area Athletic Conference schools, including Northwood, will be a probationary member of the Ohio High School Athletic Association next year, and currently is much larger than the other ICSOM schools (25 boys, grades 9-12).

Last season, Waite boys’ basketball won the City League regular season title (10-

1) and finished the season 14-6, losing to Scott in the Division I sectional final at Central Catholic’s Sullivan Center.
Of course, every season there is plenty of competition in the CL with perennial powers St. John’s Jesuit, Scott, Libbey, Central Catholic, and St. Francis DeSales. Don’t forget that every single school in the CL always brings something to the table, whether it’s Start, Rogers, Whitmer, or whoever.
The table is not bare for Coach Dave Pitsenbarger, a 1983 Waite graduate who has done his job making his alma mater a contender.
“We have three players returning (Antonio Allen, Dishon Harris, Ke-sean Harris) who have been a part of our success the past two years. They know what it takes and how it feels to win,” Pitsenbarger said. “We have the flexibility to go with several lineups—big, small, small and quick, big and quick, and a mix.

Ottawa-Glandorf made sure Eastwood's football season came to a screeching halt Nov. 14 in the Division IV regional semifinals in Findlay.

The Titans handed coach Jerry Rutherford's Eagles a convincing 48-3 loss just one week after Eastwood dealt previously unbeaten Galion, the Northern Ohio League champion, a 35-6 home drubbing.

Rutherford, who saw his team's season end with a 9-3 record, said the loss to O-G (10-2) didn't diminish the Eagles' accomplishments in 2009.
