Ohio Dominican University, located at 1216 Sunbury Road in the Northeast Central part of Columbus, Ohio, has completed all of the requirements it had set out to do three years ago to enter the tougher NCAA Division II and boost school enrollment.

ODU started its football program in 2004 as one of several new initiatives towards shedding its image as just a commuter school. It wanted to be known as residential college.

The school has pumped more than $60 million since 2003 in construction where it has improved and expanding athletics facilities such as a student center, academic buildings and dormitories.

The NCAA notified ODU, a Roman Catholic college, on Friday that it has achieved full membership as of September 1, following the provisional 2010-11 school year in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, which also brought in Lake Erie College as a new member. Also in the league in Ohio is Findlay and Tiffin.

Division II has 302 teams nationwide.

ODU, which has an enrollment of 3,100 students, sponsors 18 varsity sports, adding track and field last fall. In football, the Panthers went 2-8 in their first season in the GLIAC.

Prior to last season, the football program had three consecutive winning seasons in the NAIA, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Kalida, Ohio native Randy Kortokrax is the Division II coach of the year.

Kortokrax has the Hartley Hawks in the state tournament playing Thursday morning at 10:45 a.m. against Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s (17-9). The Hawks, winners of the Central Catholic League, are 22-1.

The Hawks basketball team have had an exceptional year, considering they had a late start to the season because the football team won a state football championship and most of the players from that team play on the hardcourt as well.

This is Hartley’s first state appearance since 1990.

Kortokrax himself was a top-notch basketball player himself at the University of Findlay from 1983-87. He is the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,575 points, 1,242 rebounds and number one in points per game 23.4 and rebounds per game 10.9. He holds 14 Findlay school records in basketball.

Kortokrax is a 2010 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Hall of Fame Inductee.
