SALEM, OHIO -- The sixtieth season of the Ohio Speedskating Tour went off without a hitch on the small tight speedskating oval in downtown Salem, Ohio.

The next tournament will be a clash of the Buckeyes and Keystones as the Pennsylvania and Ohio leagues will collide in the newest facility in the nation.
