The red team will play at 4 p.m. Friday, March 27 at Kent State Tuscarawas and the black team will play at 4 p.m. at Dover Middle School. If they win on Friday, the red team will play at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 28, at Dover Middle School and the black team will play at 11 a.m. at Strasburg High School. The skills team will compete at 10 a.m. on March 28 at Claymont High School. Members of this team will be individually scored on passing, dribbling and shooting.

The red team (Division V) was 8-1 and the black team (Division II) was 7-0. Due to the inclement weather, the whole schedule was not played. The red team has both adults and students and the black team is the team that won the Division III State Championship last year. In Special Olympics, the teams are evaluated and possibly put in new divisions each year. The black team moved up to Division II this year.

A pep rally honoring the teams will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 26, at Coshocton High School in the gym.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
