Boys Basketball Wins 10th State Championship!

Congratulations to our boys basketball team, who won their 10th State Championship in program history. The boys were victorious over Gilmour Academy on Sunday, March 20th at UD Arena, 63-35. 

The boys have been to the State Championship 18 times and have won 10 times. Before the merger in 1972, St. Mary High School won a State Championship in 1929; however, the OHSAA recognizes us as different schools. 

This is Coach Dru Joyce's 7th State Championship as Head Coach and 9th overall on staff. He won two as an assistant in 2000 and 2001, before being named head coach in 2001. Coach Dru's overall record is 443-119. 

We are considered the most dominant and winningest boys basketball program in the STATE!

Minus the covid year, that canceled the season, we have been to the last 6 consecutive State Final 4's.
