A lot of people have seen the sports briefs that area schools have tournament tickets for sale in advance. A lot of people just buy their tickets at the door when they arrive to make things more convenient for themselves.

However, fans can help their players and schools by taking a few extra minutes to stop by their respective schools and purchase tickets in advance.

Schools only receive 25 percent of the presale. The remainder of the presale and all the money at the gate goes to the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

Ticket presales have been slow for this week’s district tournament games to be held at Ohio University’s Convocation Center.

Ironton plays North Adams at 7 p.m. Saturday.

There are actually six Division III games and one ticket will allow fans to watch all day.

Fairland’s boys play Vinton County at 8 p.m. on Friday in a Division II district semifinal.

On Sunday in girls’ Division III district title games, Ironton plays Adena at 2 p.m. followed by Fairland and Portsmouth West at 4 p.m.
