Going to the state tournament is getting to be old hat for Ottawa-Glandorf.

The Titans went to the state tournament in 1977 and 1978, and then returned again in 2004 to win the Division II state title.

They also won the Division III championship in 2008 and made it back to the Final Four last year.

O-G (24-3) finds itself making back-to-back trips to Columbus after beating Bloom-Carroll 60-56 in overtime on Saturday. The regional title means the Titans will play the Ironton Fighting Tigers (23-2) at 10:45 a.m. Thursday in the Division III state semifinals in Columbus.

The Titans lost in the state semifinals last year to eventual state champion Cincinnati Summit Country Day. But O-G returns with its entire starting lineup in tact.

Ottawa-Glandorf is led by seniors Michael Rosebrock and T.J. Metger and 6-7 sophomore Noah Bramlage, Also back are seniors Caleb Siefker and point guard Matt Kaufman.

In the win over Bloom-Carroll, Bramlage had 15 points and nine rebounds while Metger and Rosebrock scored 13 each.

A key for the Titans was on the glass where they dominated 38-25.
