Local schools form new athletic league

Several local schools have formed a new athletic league sanctioned by the Ohio High School Athletic Association called the Sandusky River League.

The schools currently committed to the new league are Calvert Catholic Schools, Lakota, New Riegel, Old Fort, St. Joseph Central Catholic and St. Mary Central Catholic. The ultimate goal of the new league is to have eight football schools and two to three non-football schools, according to a release. The Sandusky River League will begin play during the 2014-15 school year.

Any school interested in joining the league should contact Dave Danhoff at Lakota Local School District at (419) 986-6650.
