OHSAA moving forward with fall golf, tennis, volleyball


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) will move forward with low-contact sports this fall.

OHSAA confirmed Tuesday that boys and girls golf, girls tennis, and volleyball can hold competitions between schools in the fall. Other sports such as cross-country, field hockey, soccer, and football have not yet been approved for competitions by the state.

“The OHSAA is working with the Governor’s Office toward safety protocols and permission for those sports this fall,” officials said in a social media statement.

“The most important concern is leaving it up to the individual school districts because OHSAA has been the one who has provided guidance for decades,” said Frank Russo, athletic director for Trotwood-Madison High School. “The situation is so fluid on a day-to-day basis so we are moving forward with our operation preparing our athletes to compete in the upcoming season,” he said.
