Congratulations to the Buckeye Orange Varsity team on their undefeated championship season! The Bucks won the 11/2/2019 LEYFL Varsity Red Division championship game 12-6 in overtime vs Amherst Gold at Vermillion HS. Their hard work, dedication and determination showed through in the hard fought game.

This gives the Orange Varsity back-to-back undefeated seasons. For the much decorated 6th grade class it was their 3rd championship in 4 years.

Great job Bucks!
