JV/V Girls Basketball kicks off their home season tonight. JV will play Bluffton at 6:00, varsity will follow vs. Celina. Between games, we will recognize the 1998 state championship girls basketball team.

The information below from the OHSAA Regulations is why schools have decided to play 2 quarters during the JV game when they have very low numbers in their programs.
Due to low numbers & recent injuries at USV, tonight’s Varsity girls basketball game is postponed to December 4 (7pm).
