Without question, Lexington has established themselves as the premiere high school tennis program in North Central Ohio under the tutelage of head coach Ron Schaub. 

The longtime Minutemen leader has his squad headed back to state competition this weekend after clinching another boys District Championship. Lexington will now seek a third boys state title under Schaub, with the team's 3-1 victory over Ottawa Hills Wednesday evening. 

The victory punched their ticket to the final 4, where Schaub's squad will battle defending champion Cincinnati Country Day in Sunday's semifinals. 

Minutemen stud senior Mason Dragos will first compete in the OHSAA singles championships, where the Butler University commit will face freshman Andrew Pregel in Friday's opening round. Dragos returned to action just a few weeks ago after suffering a gun-shot wound to the chest that left shrapnel in between his heart and liver and badly damaged one of his hands. 

Schaub discussed Dragos' miraculous comeback to the court with Sports Buzz host Brian Skowronski. The longtime Lexington coach also touched on the team's state tournament matchup, the secret to his success and even hair-care techniques, or lack thereof. 

Tune-in for new episodes of The Sports Buzz every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. on WMFD TV.
