Washington High School
Massillon, Ohio

Under third year head coach and alum Josh Hose ('97), the Massillon Tiger basketball team continued its winning ways despite struggles with player quarantines and getting a late start because of the extended football season (always a good thing here, but not necessarily for basketball).

The Tigers defeated a previously unbeaten Wooster team as well as local rivals Perry and Central. The roundball Bengals kept it interesting with Division I powers McKinley and Jackson, but lost by 10 points to each. In the state tournament, a sectional win over Hudson was followed by a loss to Solon. The Tigers findished out at 15-9.

It could be noted here that Ohio basketball divisions do not reflect Ohio's football divisions. For basketball, we are one of the smaller schools in Ohio's Division I.
