Loss doesn’t overshadow Barnesville’s lengthy list of accomplishments

That may not occur today, next week or even next month. But, eventually, the time will come.

And hopefully it’s sooner than later because a trip to the OHSAA State Tournament is something that should be celebrated now and as anniversaries in the years that come.

Unfortunately, the Shamrocks came up short of the ultimate goal, which is to hoist the gold trophy on Sunday as Division III state champions.

But, Friday’s 7-1 loss to Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy at Canal Park should really be considered a blip on the radar.

“We might not have won (Friday), but these kids have everything in the world to be proud of,” Barnesville head coach D.J. Butler said.
