Not many high school campuses could do what Oil City did Tuesday. They held four separate home events.
On the diamonds, the Oilers had a rough day. The baseball team fell to Greenville, who put up a couple big innings in between a solid pitching effort. Up the hill the softball team was routed, but went seven innings against Grove City.
One the tennis court the Oilers had a easy go of it against a near non-existent Rocky Grove tennis team. And on the track Oil City handled their Route 8 neighbors to the north - Titusville.
Oil City's sports complex was a hotbed of competition
Route 8 Rivalry is a website dedicated the long history of the Oil City and Franklin football rivalry by former sports editor Penny Weichel. It is an amazing labor of love and valuable resource for history. It is our go-to here at 8and322.com.
