In Columbus, the Muskies fall in the first round of the OAC Tournament in four games to Capital.

Zanesville native Kevin Martin saw considerable playing time in his sophomore debut in the NBA, but failed to have a positve impact on the outcome. The Hornets hammer the Kings 93-67.

Averaging a little over 10 minutes a game as a rookie, Martin played 20 minutes in Sacramento's season opening loss to New Orleans Tuesday night.

The ZHS grad only scored three points as the leading player off the bench with no rebounds and three personal fouls. K-mart shoots a mere 1-5...

There was an empty feeling in Hanover a year ago. 2004 was the first and only time this decade that Licking Valley didn't make the postseason. Now, the Panthers probably should have gotten in, but had to forfeit four games for misfiling papers on a transfer student.

So far this season the Panthers have done their best to erase that misfortune by finishing the regular season undefeated for the fourth time in six years.

At 10-0 the Panthers are ranked second in the...

West Muskingum 21

The Tornadoes magical season continues with a huge upset at Paul Culver Stadium.

West Muskingum (8-2) intercepted Sheridan quarterback Kyle Culver three times, including two costly picks late in the game.

West M led 14-0 at halftime, and held on for the victory. There is an outside chance the Generals (7-3) will miss the playoffs with the loss.

For only the second time since 1990, the co-MVL leaders meet for the outright league championship in the final game of the season.

The last time week 10 meant so much was 1997, when Crooksville crushed River View for the Ceramics' last league crown.

Certainly Friday night will be historic no matter the outcome when West M meets Sheridan. No question about it, past history says the Generals are the favorite.

The Tornadoes haven't won a league championship since...

Breaking down the picture… In Division One in Region 3, at 7-2 Newark is 6th with a huge game against region rival Gahanna Lincoln. The Lions are ranked second in region three and just like last year, a win gets the Wildcats in and probably...
