Sectional Wrestling Meet

The Sectional Wrestling Meet is at Batavia this year. Wrestling starts at 6:00 pm on Friday and 11:00 am on Saturday.

Lady Lions Get Tournament Win

The Lady Lions Girls basketball team scored their first tournament win in several years last night defeating Aiken 28-21. The #5 seeded Aiken entered game with a 13-7 record playing out of the Cincinnati Metro Conference boasting a strong inside game and quick and aggressive guard play. The Lady Lions countered with a stifling zone that proved too strong for Aiken who were held in check the entire game with most of their points coming in transition. Senior Reno Frayne led the way with 14 points and 11 rebounds while Freshmen Josie Buckingham chipped in 9 points and collected 14 rebounds. Sarah Shoemaker topped off the rest of the scoring with 5 points and provided solid ball handling against the athletic Aiken guards.

The girls play in the Sectional Semi-Finals vs Finneytown Tuesday, Feb 22 @ Withrow HS at 7:30. Presale tickets can be purchased in the HS office during school hours.
