The Greater Western Ohio Conference (GWOC) Superintendents and Executive Board recently met to discuss the upcoming fall athletic season in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic there have been many changes to our way of life and the GWOC is adapting to those changes.  As such the GWOC has made the decision that all athletic contests played during the fall athletic season will be played against GWOC member schools only.  This applies to all sports.  This was a difficult decision but one that was made in the best interest of our student-athletes.  The primary focus is to provide the student-athletes every opportunity to compete and this decision helps achieve that.  While we realize challenges await we will remain flexible and adaptable to inevitable challenges that await as we navigate the pandemic.

As public events and gatherings continue to be postponed or cancelled, so have all OHSAA spring sports. As the spring 2020 season would have marked the final high school sports season for GWOC seniors, we didn't want to miss the opportunity to recognize them all.
GWOC spring sports seniors: Thank you for all of your hard work and effort that you have contributed to your respective schools and teams over the years. We're sure it's hard to believe that graduation is just around the corner. While we realize this is not how you imagined ending your high school careers, we hope that you feel the support of those around you and those within the Conference. It is our honor to award and name all GWOC spring sports seniors to the All-Conference Honorary First Team. Congratulations seniors! May your future be bright and successful.
