Area IV Spring Games
Eleven counties competed in the area qualifier on Saturday May 12th at Sylvania Southview High School. Over 400 athletes competed in track and field, volleyball, and bocce ball. Unfortunately cycling had to be canceled due to the weather conditions. Even though it was a dreary, rainy day, our athletes stuck it out and were able to get through all the events. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers we had this year and everyone who attended.
Golf Scramble a big success!
