Red Raiders set to begin play in the Central Buckeye Conference
Opposing school uniforms may look a bit different this fall as the London Red Raiders officially join the Central Buckeye Conference. By moving to the CBC, London aligns itself with similar size schools and will avoid many of the travel challenges associated with Metro Columbus. The switch also means a league with greater stability after years of turmoil as a member of the Ohio Division of the Mid States League. Starting with this fall’s sports season, all middle school and high school athletic teams will be competing in the CBC except for middle school and high school football. Football will join the CBC in the fall of 2019.

For high school sports, the Central Buckeye Conference is broken into two divisions, the Kenton Trail Division and the Mad River Division. London will join the conference as a member of the Kenton Trail Division along with athletic teams from Bellefontaine, Madison County rival Jonathan Alder, Kenton Ridge, Shawnee, and Tecumseh. Members of the Mad River Division include Benjamin Logan, Graham, Indian Lake, North Union, Northwestern, and Urbana.

To ease travel between conference opponents, the CBC will be arranged geographically for middle school athletics. London will join the South division along with Jonathan Alder, Northwestern, Northridge (Kenton Ridge), Shawnee, and Tecumseh. The North division will consist of Bellefontaine, Ben Logan, Graham, Indian Lake, North Union, and Urbana.

The CBC has a well maintained league website, www.cbcsportsonline.com, where visitors will find seasonal records, stats, all-league teams, schedules, and more.  

Along with this move, there will be a change in ticket pricing at the varsity level. All events that include a varsity event will be $7 for an adult ticket and $5 for a student/senior citizen (Golden Buckeye Card holder) ticket. For this year, the only games that will deviate from this are the varsity football games, which will remain $6 for adult tickets and $4 for student/senior citizen tickets due to one more year of membership in the Mid-State League.
