Green Wave fans: Remember that today’s boys’ regional final basketball game versus Defiance begins at 4 p.m, with the game taking place at Bowling Green State University’s Stroh Center. The address for the Stroh Center is 1535 E Wooster St, Bowling Green, OH 43403.

Also: Parking will cost $5. BGSU is playing in a CIT Tournament Game at 1 p.m., so you may have to park farther away from the Stroh Center. If you are interested in watching BGSU play Canisius College in the CIT Tournament game, tickets are only $5 for HN fans.

Additionally, there will be $2 concession items on sale, including hot dogs, popcorn, and 16 oz. fountain beverages. Bowling Green has also notified HN that those fans who purchase a BGSU men’s basketball ticket can receive a 10% discount off their bill at El Zarape. El Zarape is right across the street from the Stroh Center. Driving is not necessary to reach this establishment.

We look forward to seeing you in Bowling Green at 4 p.m.! Go Green Wave!

The Holy Name High School Boys’ Basketball Team won the North Ridgeville Division II District Title Game this past Saturday, and Namer Nation couldn’t be more excited! We are so proud of the team and coaches for their hard work, and congratulate them on moving on to play in the Regional Semi-Final Game versus Sandusky.

The game will be played at Bowling Green State University on Thursday, March 19, with the gametime set for 6:15 p.m. Because this is a great opportunity for our students to cheer on their classmates, Holy Name will be offering a school-sponsored bus to the game.

The cost to ride the bus will be $30, and this will include a ticket to the boys’ basketball game. It will NOT include food and/or beverages. Students are encouraged to bring money to make their own food purchases at the game.

The bus will be for Holy Name students only; however, Holy Name faculty members will be on the bus to serve as chaperones. Students will be supervised from the time they board the bus, until they return to school after the game. The bus will depart from Holy Name at 3 p.m. on Thursday to ensure an on-time arrival, and will leave Bowling Green immediately after the game has ended. We expect to return to Holy Name by 10:30 p.m.

If your student or students are interested in riding the bus, please turn in the medical authorization form and the permission slip form, along with $30, to the Main Office by 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 19. All forms will be available in the Main Office, and will also be emailed to parents and students. Cash or check payments (made payable to Holy Name High School) will be accepted. There is room for 50 students on the bus, so seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students must have all forms and money turned in before being permitted to ride the bus.

Pre-sale tickets for those families and students not riding on the bus will also be available beginning at Noon on Tuesday, March 17. If you have any questions about securing a spot on the bus, or about purchasing pre-sale tickets, please contact Athletic Director Jack Richardson at jrichardson@holynamehs.com or (440) 886-0300 ext. 155.

Once again we congratulate the Holy Name Boys’ Basketball Team on a fantastic 65-50 win over Vermilion to secure the Division II North Ridgeville District Championship! The Namers now move on to the Sweet 16 and play their first Regional Playoff Game at Bowling Green State University on Thursday, March 19 at 6:15 p.m. They will play the winner of tonight’s Ontario/Sandusky game. More details will be released once available! ‪All Hail Holy Name!
