2020-2021 NWC Don Bachman Award of Excellence

Columbus Grove won the Northwest Conference 2020-2021 “Don Bachman Award of Excellence”.  This is the fifth time Columbus Grove has accomplished this feat since the establishment of the award in 2005.  This award recognizes the school in the conference that exhibits the highest level of consistent excellence in conference-sponsored sports and scholastic bowl competitions each school year.
