One year after making it to the third round of the playoffs, Coshocton found itself near the basement of the ECOL last year.

Teams always talk about having strong senior leadership in order to win. WHIZ's Evans Boston tells us in this Coca-Cola Powerade Team Preview that if Coshocton wants to get back to the playoffs, the Redskins will have to rely on not only the seniors, but the juniors as well.

Sheridan again saw tremendous success last year. The Generals won the MVL again, going 9-1, and beat the number one team in the state in the playoffs, falling one win short of the final four.

For years on end, Cambridge High School has been known for its rich basketball tradition. Gene Ford's boys won the ECOL many times, and was often ranked in the AP's top 10.

Well, there is a new team in town. Ok, not really, Cambridge has always had a football team, but recently the success of the Bobcats has taken the community by storm.

It's taken Rick Goodrich seven years to build the program, but now its off and running. WHIZ's Aaron Spragg explains in this Coca-Cola...

16-18 Year-Old Babe Ruth World Series

Licking County A's (Newark) 8 F/8
Columbia Basin, WA 7

With a trip to the championship game on the line, extra innings were needed before Newark Could put away Columbia Basin, 8-7 in eight innings.

Factor in a late start time because of rain showers earlier in the day, and the extra inning, this loser's bracket final game did not wrap up until well after mid night.

Newark went 8-2 last season, winning the OCC. Amazingly, the Wildcats didn't make the playoffs, missing the cut at Division I by five-hundredths of a point.

A frustrating end to a great season, and Evans Boston tells us in this Coca-Cola Powerade Team Preview that this Newark team wants to do better than eight wins...they want 10. And with this team, that's not out of the question.

Case in point, last year the Sheridan Generals went 9-1 during the regular season and had the best defense in the state as far as points allowed. The one team to beat the Red Rage, Newark Catholic. And the Green Wave did it two years in a row.

Needless to say, the two-year contract between the two schools wasn'...
