Boys basketball games this Friday are sure to be full of excitement.  Several rivalry games are set for 7:30 tip offs. Long time rivals Miamisburg and West Carrollton, and Piqua and Troy are just two of the great games scheduled. One other notable game is Centerville vs. Wayne.  After recently beating one of the top ranked teams in the nation, Findlay Prep, the Wayne Warriors will be doing what they can to out score the Elks.  Wayne and Centerville are currently tied for the top spot in the Central Division, and the winner of that game will take over the top spot.  Follow the action of all GWOC games on Twitter (@GWOC) and get out to support your favorite GWOC team.  Good luck to all teams!

Good sportsmanship is a priority at all GWOC schools both on and off the playing field.  When attending a GWOC event, one would expect to see displays of good sportsmanship by all spectators and competitors - such as respect for oneself, opponents, and officials; shaking hands prior to or after competition; being humble in victory and graceful in defeat.  But at a recent Fairborn and Springboro boys basketball game, the display of good sportsmanship went far beyond the normal hand shake. The Fairborn student "Spirit Section" heard that a Springboro student passed away prior to the basketball game.  Students from Fairborn created a card as well as a banner expressing their thoughts and prayers for the family and for the Panthers.  The banner and card were presented to the Springboro students and fans at halftime.  This show of support from one school to another really goes to show the sportsmanship and closeness of the GWOC family!  

The 9th annual Battle of Far Hills wrestling match between Centerville and Fairmont was held last Thursday at Fairmont High School.  Centerville lead early and by as much as 23 to 5 at one point. Fairmont was not ready to give up and battled to bring the score within 7 but Centerville held on for the win. Congratulations to all wrestlers!
