The East Clinton eighth grade girls basketball team won its first game of the season Monday over Blanchester, 15-9.
Sahara Tate had nine points for the Astros while Kenzi Terrell had three and Ezzy Robinson had three.
East Clinton has just five players on its roster, coach Steven Sodini said. The hard work the team has put in over the last few months has paid off with a win, he added.
“We were able to slow down, run our offense and see some great success,” Sodini added. “We still need to work on finishing some shots and taking advantage of free throws.”
Kaylee Terrell and Taylor Brown were consistent forces on defense while Ryleigh Burns played key roles on both offense and defense. The team was just working together, Sodini concluded.
