ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON:

We’re looking for our first conference championship. We’ve been very close the past three years but just missed. We intend to compete for an SBAAC title. We were very young in 2016 playing 9 freshmen and sophomores. We’ve come back bigger, stronger and faster. Our team speed is very good, but we have to play fast. We like our chances.

We lost Katlyn (Jamiel) last year for the entire season with a broken leg in our final scrimmage. She’s back with vengeance and she’s one of the best players in Ohio.

Jasmine (Jamiel) and Autumn (Housh) are building great team chemistry in our offensive third. Possibly the best chemistry I’ve seen between dual strikers the past 10 years. They’re gonna be dangerous.

We’ve had a great summer thus far. The girls are working hard and getting results. We won our division in the Xenia tournament and our preseason record currently stands at 6-1-1 and we beat three quality teams along the way, Marysville, Greenon and Greeneview.
