For the first time in school history the Southern Tornadoes are champions of the Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division. Southern shares the crown with Waterford as both teams finished 12-4 in the league this season. The Purple and Gold needed a little help from Wahama Friday night, and they got just that, as the White Falcons defeated Waterford 70-63 in Washington County. The Tornadoes finished up their regular season campaign Wednesday with a 56-50 victory over Trimble. This is the 15th conference title in Southern history, the last of which came in 1992 — two seasons before the formation of the TVC Hocking. Waterford’s last TVC Hocking championship came in the 2008-09 season.
