The Van Wert High School baseball team heads to Akron this weekend to take on the defending state champion, Dayton’s Chaminade Julienne in the State Semifinals game. There will be a sendoff Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. along Fox Road to wish the boys good luck as they leave Van Wert. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Saturday, June 8 with gates opening at 9:00 a.m. All tickets to the OHSAA State Tournament are $8.00 per person and can be purchased in advance here. Be mindful that while you may be able to pick a section, row and seat number when you purchase tickets, it is general admission once inside the gates. Parking is free on weekends in Akron and a map to Canal Park is available here. Good luck and Go Cougars!
