State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Courthouse) and State Representative Ryan Smith (R-Bidwell) honored the Ohio Valley Christian School boys basketball team on winning the 2016 OCSAA State Championship at yesterday's Ohio Senate and House sessions.

“The Ohio Valley Christian boys basketball team’s championship season was a tremendous achievement worthy of recognition,” said Smith. “I was pleased to have them up at the Statehouse to present them with a resolution.” 

The Ohio Valley Christian Defenders defeated Dayton Temple Christian at Ohio Christian University’s Maxwell Center with a score of 49-28 on February 27th. This was the Defenders first OCSAA state championship title after making the final four five times in the last six years. With this win, the Ohio Valley Christian School boys basketball team finished their season with a 21-6 record.

"I'm honored to recognize these student-athletes from Ohio Valley Christian as they continue the school's tradition of success on and off the court," said Peterson. "Their resounding victory in this year's state championship has made the community proud and I look forward to seeing them back on the court next season."
