2018 Night of Tradition.jpg

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Night of Tradition on July 28th will

celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our 1998 Division III State Championship Team.

With their 21-14 win over Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit, DeSales became the first school in

Ohio history to repeat as state champions since computer points were instituted in

determining playoff teams (since 1972).
