Believe it or not, the local varsity hockey team, the Newark Generals, are the Ohio State runner up varsity team. Not some team from up north, but nowhere central ohio. Pretty cool. I try to go to their games every thursday, schedule permitting.
The team is a conglomerate team. Meaning, not one school has enough players to make a strong team, so the school combine players and form a joint team. The generals have players from Granville, Heath, Bishop Rosecrans, Licking Valley, Lakewood, and Newark Catholic.
