Talawanda Athletic Department Update-May 11, 2023

Posted on: May 11, 2023

After careful evaluation of our Athletic Department, as well as community feedback (that we have taken into serious consideration), we regret to announce that Talawanda High School will no longer be offering field hockey as an OHSAA school sponsored sport. This is not a decision that was taken lightly or without careful consideration of all aspects around the field hockey team, our student athletes, and our Athletic Department. Talawanda Athletics is in a very difficult position given our district's financial challenges, paired with our athletic conference situation. We have weighed the positives and negatives of this decision many times over and still strongly believe it is the best decision for the Athletic Department as a whole. 

We do sincerely apologize to all our student athletes that this decision directly impacts. This is not a situation that any of us want to be in, but unfortunately we are in a position where we have to make tough decisions that help support the continued success of all our athletic teams, and all facets of the Talawanda Athletic Department. We will continue to evaluate other athletic teams within our department in the same manner and make decisions that we feel are best for Talawanda Athletics.
