Winter sports season begins today


The winter sports season will get underway this week for Swanton High School.

Girls basketball will tip off today with a game at Lake. Coming off a league runner-up finish, the Bulldogs will have a lot of new faces, including new head coach Eric Oakes.

The girls then open league play with a home contest against Patrick Henry on Friday. Next Monday, the Bulldogs host Springfield.

The bowling teams fell to Patrick Henry on Monday.

Boys basketball will tip off the season Dec. 3 with a non-league contest at rival Evergreen. The Bulldogs have three key starters back from the team that shared the NWOAL title last season.

The Swanton wrestling team has a preview Wednesday at Rossford before opening the season at the Fricker’s Duals on Dec. 18-19 at Defiance College.
