There will be a shake-up around the state next year when the Ohio High School Athletic Association goes to a seven-division format. It will allow more teams to make the playoffs with eight teams in seven divisions as opposed to just six.

FRIDAY’S GAMES

Division VI: Newark Catholic (12-2) vs. Maria Stein Marion Local (12-2), 11 a.m., Paul Brown Tiger Stadium

  A special edition of Ziegler Tire's "Game Night" show will have highlights and interviews from tonight's Dover-Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary state semifinal game.
