Northland Vikings continue to dominate the City League`

This past weekend, Columbus Northland wrapped up their fourth straight City league title with a victory over Marion-Franklin, 65-52 at East High School.

Everybody talks about dynasty, legacy and men among boys when Northland’s team is being discussed these days. There are still five weeks left in the basketball season and it remains to be seen if this team can defend their Division I championship.

The two big-name leaders of this team is Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon have been a part of this dynasty all four years, winning those four unprecedented City League titles. If you count City League records in the North Division and City Championship games, the Ohio State-bound dynamic duo were part of teams which piled up a record of 59-0.

One wonders how this team will stack up to other Columbus City League basketball programs in years past.

The senior class from Columbus East led by Ed Ratleff, Dwight “Bo” Lamar and Nick Connor that won back-to-back state championships in 1968 and ’69 finished with a 71-1 slate. But those accomplishments cover only three seasons because ninth-graders were not permitted to play varsity during those seasons. Although the Tigers went undefeated in the City League from 1966 to ’69, they lost fellow City rival and eventual state champion Linden in the 1967 regional final.

Brookhaven also set standards of excellence with 12 City North titles and a 159-14 league record from 1995-2006, including six straight City championships. The fifth, was given to them by default after Africentric forfeited 27 wins, including a win over Brookhaven in the championship game.

In the win over Marion-Franklin, 19-0 Northland received the best shot from the determined Red Devils, but their height, athleticism, depth, patience and talent was too much to overcome.

As usual, Jared Sullinger and J.D. Weatherspoon led Northland with 25 and 16 points respectively. The 15-4 Red Devils were led by Jeremy McCoy with 13 points.

Girls High School Basketball District Seedings

Pickerington North has been voted the number one seed in the Central District of the Division I girls basketball tournament. The Panthers finished the regular season with an Ohio Capital Conference Ohio Division championship and a 19-1 record and are ranked number one in the Associated Press state poll. But seedings mean nothing once the tournament starts.

Pickerington North has been impressive this season behind 6-foot junior forward Kavunaa Edwards, 6-0 junior center Jordan Householder and guards Nicole Olszewski and her sister Shelby.

Olentangy (15-5) is seeded second in the Division II Central District. Head Coach John Feasel’s team won its first OCC Cardinal Division championship last Friday; its first in 11 years.

Africentric is 15-5 going into the tournament. The Nubians didn’t win the City League Championship for the first time since 2005. They’ve also moved from Division IV, where they won two of the previous three state championships, to Division III. Africentric lost to Brookhaven 46-41 last Saturday in the City League title game.

In Division IV, top-seeded Harvest Prep (19-1) boasts a cast bolstered by Grove City transfers Shicole Watts, Aryelle Beavers, Chelsea McKnight and Jaren and Jarel Francis.
