The Ohio High School Athletic Association approved lacrosse as a sanctioned sport Thursday in its monthly board of directors meeting.

The sport will debut in the 2016-17 school year for both boys and girls, with the first OHSAA-sponsored state tournament set for the spring of 2017.

The board has also approved new divisional alignments and regions for the 2015 season. Details and maps will be announced Tuesday.
