The all-Ontario basketball and volleyball championships start Thursday and only three local schools are participating and they're all doing so in volleyball.
Woodland is competing at the OFSAA single-A tournament in Toronto, while Forest Heights and Jacob Hespeler are at the triple-A tournament in Windsor.
The elimination of the quad-A designation will no doubt play a role in reducing the number of schools participating at the OFSAA level.

Huron Heights has folded its boys hockey team just three days before it was to open its WCSSAA schedule against Sir John A. Macdonald.
No staff member was willing to step forward and coach the team after last year's coach was forced to take a medical leave.
Girls coach Dave Clipper had overseen the team's tryouts and the Huskies actually participated in a tournament last week.
They learned the team had been folded on Monday.
