CONGRATULATIONS! – The GCHS Titans swept the Wirt Tigers in two games late last week to claim the Sectional Championship. On Thursday, May 12, the Titans defeated the visiting Tigers, 5-4; the next night, the Titans would repeat their performance as another, 5-4, victory sealed the deal. The GCHS Titans are the 2016 Sectional Champs!

On Thursday, May 12, the GCHS Track and Field Team competed against other talented runners, jumpers, and throwers in the region for a chance to advance to the State Tournament on Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21.
For some Nathan Stout, it was simply another warm-up in preparation for what will be his final State Tournament appearance. Stout has made quite a name for himself over the last four years with the Titan team. He has broke school records, LKC records, and even state records.
Last Thursday, his shot put distance, 59-06.00, was enough to easily secure top regional honors; moreso, it was more than six feet past the current state record, 53-05.00 - a record he set May a year ago.
In discus, Stout threw for 145-03.00. Another first place finish that advances him in his pursuit to repeat as State Champion.
The Glenville State Athletic Department is excited to announce the establishment of a new sport at GSC. After a year of consideration and planning, boxing will begin in the fall of 2016.
“I’ve always enjoyed boxing and now for it to be a part of GSC’s athletic family, I am truly excited,” stated GSC Athletic Director Marcal Lazenby.
Duane Chapman, who has been a part of the Boxing Club at GSC for several years now, will take over the coaching responsibilities. “I believe that Duane will do a great job; he has been around the sport for his entire life,” Lazenby said. Chapman is also an Associate Professor of Art at GSC where he has taught since 1997.
