OHSAA finalizes spring state tourney venues


COLUMBUS — The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced the venues for the track and field state tournament and the lacrosse state championships, which complete the slate of locations for the upcoming spring state tournaments.

The track and field state tournament will return to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at The Ohio State University on June 3 and 4, while the lacrosse state championships will move to Historic Crew Stadium (Saturday, June 4).

“We are very excited for our track and field and lacrosse state tournaments to be held at these two fantastic facilities,” said Doug Ute, OHSAA Executive Director. “We appreciate the support and cooperation of the folks at Ohio State and the Crew so that our student-athletes and communities can have a great tournament experience to end their season.”

Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium last hosted the track and field state championships in 2019.

In 2020, spring sports were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The OHSAA thanks Westerville North, Pickerington North and Hilliard Darby high schools for hosting the state meet in 2021 with some COVID-19 restrictions still in place.

It is a one-year agreement with OSU to host the track and field state championships.

Previously, the OHSAA announced the locations for the spring state tournaments of boys tennis at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, softball at Firestone Stadium in Akron, and baseball at Canal Park in Akron.
