What I do know is this...one of Orrville's all-time greats, Kevin Summers scored 51 points against Copley in his junior year (1990-91 season) which is still a record for scoring at Orrville.
He didn't just score that night either, he tacked on 22 rebounds (also a school record), had 2 blocks and 3 assists.
I don't want to turn this into a love-fest for something that happened 20 years ago or anything, but that's a pretty awesome effort, and worth a little look-back in time.

It's also time for the 2nd Annual Wooster District Preview, brought to you by this site and Andrew Marcum's OhioBasketball.net. Andrew does a great job in tracking local basketball so we'll once again put our heads together and see if we can provide some sort of roadmap. Call it a fan guide if you will.

Girls - Triway District Bracket - Northeast Ohio Regional Bracket - Statewide "Sweet 16" Bracket
Boys - Wooster District Bracket - Northeast Ohio Regional Bracket - Statewide "Sweet 16" Bracket
She'll compete in the 200 yd Freestyle swim at this weekend's meet at the Branin Natatorium in Canton (right beside the Fieldhouse). She swam a personal best 1:56.47, good enough for a 7th place finish at Friday's Division 2 district meet at Cleveland State. The top 3 finishers in each event earned automatic bids, and the next 11 fastest times statewide earned at-large berths. Madison earned one of those at-large spots.

Great article in today's Daily Record about Northwestern guard Brennan McKean closing in on his school's scoring record. Orrville fans got to see him up-close and personal last weekend, so no more really needs to be said about his talent...only that I hope he "takes his talents to Beall Avenue" and plays for the College of Wooster next season.
As an accompaniment to the article was a list of the top 25 scorers in area history. It's stat-geekery gold for someone like me. The list is littered with names from the past and present that any area hoops fan would immediately recognize.
What also jumped out at me was the number of great players that all happened to graduate in 1992. Look at these names and their ranking on the all-time area top 25.
