Madam Speaker, at this time last year I predicted that I would be standing here once again to congratulate Coach Jamie Mahaffey and his North College Hill Trojans. Well, they proved me right after winning back-to-back Division III Ohio State high school basketball championships.

Just this past weekend, North College Hill captured its second State championship with a convincing 90-73 triumph over Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph. The victory topped off an impressive 26-1 season, including a number three national ranking by USA Today and a unanimous number one ranking in the final Ohio Associated Press State poll.

The Trojans made their road to Columbus look easy, defeating their opponents by an average of 33 points a game and knocking off the reigning Division I State champions from Ohio and Kentucky. In fact, statistics like these have already brought calls for a three-peat next year.

It gives me great pleasure to congratulate the North College Hill Trojans, the players, coaches, parents, fans, teachers, and administrators on bringing the championship back to the Cincinnati area. We are very proud of you, North College Hill.
