The Ursuline and Mooney coaches were unavailable for comment immediately after their games as they wanted to take advantage of the victories to step-up their recruiting efforts, which are now probably state-wide.

that's a laugh, recruiting for baseball. It probably has nothing to do with these a lot of these kids playing ball almost year round and most of them playing summer ball in the class B league where local teams won the 16u and 18u NABF World Series. Because they go to CMHS and UHS obviously they must have got full rides, cars at 16 and their parents don't have to work any more, what a joke

Sporky, you'll see within a couple years when the recruiters have their own tournament when the public schools throw them out. In the meantime, continue to be an athletic supporter!

Ursuline's baseball program (the one you purchase at games) lists the grade school of every single player on the roster. I believe all but 2 on Ursuline's roster went to local Catholic schools. One went to Liberty, another to Mathews.

Ursuline has been tough the past few years. Ever think the program itself, which has been one of the best in the region for the past few decades, just reloaded yet again?

Badeepster, do you realize if the privates had their own tournament, they'd likely form their own athletic association and legalize recruitment efforts in Ohio, and the public schools and OHSAA would have ABSOLUTELY NO SAY about it. Boy that would backfire on you Catholic School haters!
