High school athletes and fans are taking advantage of beautiful weather in Northwest Ohio this weekend where the Napoleon Sprint Off Classic tournament begins on Friday. The outdoor competition, relatively rare in the Buckeye State, headlines the first weekend of play in Ohio as the fall interscholastic season gains momentum.

The OhioWaterPolo.com preseason coaches’ poll has the girls of Upper Arlington ranked first followed by Sycamore and a three-way tie for the third spot between Mason, Milford, and Thomas Worthington.

Defending champs St. Charles of Columbus begin the season as the top ranked boys trailed by St. Xavier and Mason.

Ohio prep water polo culminates in the girls’ state championships in Cincinnati, October 17-18, and the boys’ a weekend later in Columbus.
