Hundreds of cheering Lucas Cubs and Mansfield Senior Tygers fans were on hand for an evening pep rally centered in the gazebo in Central Park.

It’s State Championship Week In Richland County!

2 Dec , 2019  

The superlatives have been flying around the county for the last three days, and with good reason. Two Richland County high schools are making the first-ever trek to Canton later this week to play in championship games for their respective Ohio High School Athletic Association football divisions. One of the largest and perhaps the smallest enrollment schools are making a statement about the quality of sporting in the north central Ohio area. State championships can be transformative. When Galion won the Divison II state football title in 1985 in a 6-0 victory over Youngstown Cardinal Mooney, the win had a ripple effect that lasted for years in a city where economic hard times had eroded optimism.

Buckeye Season Ticket Price To Remain Unchanged Next Year

20 Nov , 2019  

Living in a community in the network of regional campuses of The Ohio State University, and with the proximity to Columbus, many Mansfielders take note of University news. From time to time, 1812Blockhouse has shared news of such developments.
