Knotted at 8-8 with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Tyler Wells took the batters’ box with the bases loaded.

After traveling for its first 20 games of the 2015 season, Ohio baseball’s first home game at Bob Wren Stadium finally came on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, they didn’t benefit from some home cooking in a 9-5 loss to the Xavier Musketeers.

The Ohio women’s basketball team walked into the Wells Fargo Arena Saturday afternoon before many Ohio and Arizona State fans had arrived for the game. Determined. Focused. Ready for the program’s first NCAA Tournament game since 1995. They had four days to prepare for the No.

The Bobcats won two back-to-back games over ther weekend, which is only the second time Ohio has managed to do so this season. 

After its offense scored nine runs in the first two games of a split with the Central Michigan Chippewas, the Ohio Bobcats (12-8, 1-2) were held scoreless in a 4-0 loss on Sunday.

The historic run of the Ohio women’s basketball team came to an end Saturday night in Tempe, Ariz. The Sun Devils forced the issues defensively, forcing 18 turnovers on the way to 74-55 victory over the ‘Cats.


In Mariah Byard’s final game as a Bobcat, and Ohio’s final game of the regular season, the women’s team helped the men’s team complete the sweep over rival Miami with a 75-60 victory.

Something is becoming very clear for the Ohio softball team this season and that is that with Savannah Jo Dorsey not playing, Lauren McClary needs to be the starting pitcher for many of the Bobcats' games. 

After making school history last year, the pressure was on for the Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes to claim a second-straight district title. 

History would not repeat itself as the Ironton Lady Tigers dominated the entire game and took the title with a 63-42 win over the Lady Buckeyes.

It must’ve been like déjà vu for the Alexander Lady Spartans on Friday.

It only seems fitting that Ohio’s seniors, a rather accomplished group, led the Bobcats (10-19, 5-13) to a 95-65 victory over Miami (13-18, 8-10) on senior night in the Convo on Friday.

Friday's game followed a similar narrative to many of Ohio's losses this season. An early deficit, a few pitching errors and a lack of offensive production ultimately saw the Bobcats drop their sixth-straight game in an 11-0 loss to Texas.

Kiyanna Black and Mariah Byard hit back to back 3-pointers for the Bobcats to start the second half en route to a blowout victory over Kent St. 69-56. The Bobcats continue their winning ways and are now 24-4 and 15-2 in the Mid-American Conference.

Some late drama in the last two innings could not prevent the Bobcats from losing to UNC Greensboro, 8-5, for their fifth-straight loss. 

The game looked like many of Ohio’s this season: an early deficit, a myriad of pitching changes, a couple hits and some early season jitters. 

The Trimble Tomcats claimed the Div. IV Sectional title Tuesday for the second year in a row as they cruised by South Webster, 76-44. With the win, the Tomcats’ unbeaten streak extends to 23-0.

The Ohio Bobcats and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were so evenly matched on Tuesday that it took 12 innings and a walk-off throwing error for the Yellow Jackets to earn a 7-6 win.
