One the girl’s side, Reynoldsburg will take on Pickerington Central in the Division I regional finals Friday night at Otterbein. The Raiders, who upset Newark Tuesday night, advance for a rematch with the defending state champs Pick Central, who beat out Westerville South to advance.
Africentric Lady Nubians continue to remain dominant as they prepare for the Division III Regional Semi-finals matchup against Margaretta Thursday at 10am. Led by McDonald All-American Jordan Jorston, the Lady Nubians are seeking their fourth State title in a row.
The District Finals have been set for this weekend with the boy’s side.
