directions to Lancaster for tonight's game:

Take 270S.  Merge onto US-33 E toward Lancaster

Follow the Lancaster ByPass (US-33)  left two lanes just past Carroll.  Do not take the Lancaster Business Route. 

Take the Exit for 22. Turn left onto 22. 

Martens will be on the left (3rd traffic light after you make the left turn onto 22)

 There is signage out by the road.  I didn’t include the map, because when I do Google Maps, it tries to take you on 188 instead.  Their way will still get you there, but going PAST 188 to 22 is going to be EASIER for your parents to locate.

Interscholastic Team Sports (girls and boys at the seventh- and eighth-grade level)

After-school interscholastic athletics provide an excellent forum for rigorous competition, while helping students develop a sense of loyalty, sportsmanship and teamwork. Interscholastic competitions provide an excellent compliment to the values outlined within the Gahanna-Jefferson Graduate Profile.

Intramural program (during the school day, traditionally during the lunch period)

The term “intramural” simply means “within the walls.” Such involvement is always under supervision and guidance of the intramural director and are age-appropriate. Students may participate in a variety of activities including kickball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and other sports. Our intramural program is all-inclusive and open to every student. In addition to further developing a sense of community within the school, the program provides students an opportunity to practice and internalize the skills, attitudes, and knowledge acquired in their physical education class.

The following forms must be completed by parent, student-athlete, medical examiner, and returned:
