A Tale of Two Seasons

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the best of times.” With apologies to Charles Dickens, this pretty much summarizes the varsity football team’s 2018 season. What started with a promising 17-14 victory over the perennial playoff-bound Millington Cardinals, languishingly became a discouraging two month stretch that saw…

Cougar Cross-Country: A Tradition of Excellence

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these runners from the swift completion of their appointed race. Until last week, that is. Due to the unrunnable conditions at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio, the annual OHSAA cross-country state championship was postponed for one week. That didn’t discourage Southview runners Cameron…

There’s a First Time for Everything

For all but one Northern Lakes League school, football season is over. Ditto volleyball, golf, soccer, and just about every other Fall sport.

Even though the students clearly enjoyed their time making art,…

A Funeral for Andrew Jackson

Mr. Fritz’s AP US History class continued the tradition of eulogizing important figures from American history.  Today’s funeral was in honor of Andrew Jackson, Old Hickory.   Given the divisive nature or our 7th president, it wasn’t surprising that both friend and foe (perhaps more foes than friends) were on hand to speak about the deceased…

If You Build It, They Will Come

The play clock read 0:00 and for many loyal Cougar fans the unforgettable words, “And the Sylvania Southview Cougars are the 2008 Division II football State Champions”, were shouted over the PA system. In Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium a group of determined teenagers executed an unblemished 15-0 season culminating with a 29-25 come from behind victory…
