Roughrider Athletics

We have a strong tradition of excelling in athletics, and we’re teeming over with Roughrider pride. Our sports opportunities help students learn the value of persistence and teamwork in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship.

Here you’ll find all of the latest information about Roughrider sports, from forms and schedules to team rosters. If you have questions, we invite you to contact our athletics director, Ryan Falknor, or the individual coaches.

Athletics Updates and Reminders

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming athletics events. Please keep in mind our special guidelines for this fall:

  • There will be no concessions at any Western Reserve games this fall.
  • We encourage fans to bring water.
  • All spectators must wear a mask.
  • If a medical condition prevents mask wearing, please provide physician documentation and wear a face-covering shield.
  • Vouchers will be required for the opportunity to purchase a ticket.
  • For outdoor events, we encourage spectators to space out even more along the rope encompassing the field. If you would like to bring a lawn chair, you may.
  • You will see tape in locations indicating six feet for social distancing. We encourage families/households to sit together.

Some great news! If any of you know Mr. Skrada, please thank him! He has agreed to live stream our three home football games, as well as three yet to be determined volleyball matches at no cost to the school or the community members who wish to watch the game while not able to attend. Each game will have a unique link that we will post on our Facebook pages and on the school website. Find the links in the sidebar of this page.

Western Reserve has formally requested a variance to permit additional spectators at our outdoor events. At this time, however, we have not received approval from the Ohio Department of Health

Rider fans, let's do this. You are all a part of this! Help us to do all that we can to comply with the requirements. We need everyone to help to give our student-athletes the best opportunity to continue to compete this fall.

OHSAA Football Playoff Ticket Purchasing Information

Western Reserve HS will host Margaretta HS in a home playoff game this Saturday night, October 10. All WR participating athletes, cheerleaders, and marching band members will receive codes that will enable parents/loved ones to purchase up to four tickets for this contest. 

We have given the coaches the codes to distribute to these participants today (Wednesday). Ticket sales will all be online, and you must bring tickets to the ticket gate as a printed hard copy or an electronic version to scan for admittance. Sales begin on Thursday at noon and end at noon on Saturday. Any remaining tickets that have not sold up to our facilities capacity limitations will then go on sale on a first come first serve basis to the general public.

This is an OHSAA Tournament event and ticket prices are set forth by the OHSAA. Tickets for the first round of the Playoffs are $12/ticket. For more information about purchasing tickets, please see the flyer below.

Cheerleading Tryouts

Attention! All incoming 7th through 12th-grade students interested in trying out for cheerleading for the 2020–21 school year should contact Coach Feaga via email or through the Remind app with class code @67ckeg. We will post detailed information about the tryout schedule soon.

Game Day Protocols

We are excited to announce that there will be a fall sports season for our students and community. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for all participating as well as for those in attendance while offering a great experience for all students involved. In order to accomplish this, things are going to look very different.

Please see the guidelines that Western Reserve will follow as we begin to hold events at our facilities. In response to the Ohio Department of Health mandates and new OHSAA Guidelines presented over the last few months, the Firelands Conference attempted to compile a list of protocols that all schools will follow during the fall season.
