Orrville High School
Northwestern High School
The Lady Riders visited the Lady Huskies for their second showdown in a week. This time to a packed house for the DIII Sectional Championship. The Riders had the energy, the fast pace, and the fight. Unfortunately, as in the previous matchup, the Riders struggled from the charity stripe only shooting 12-22. Bad free throw shooting and not being able to capitalize on easy bucket opportunities ultimately again was the difference. Whereas, the Huskies were able to hit their free throws and make key shots down the stretch eliminating the Riders tournament run.
The Riders finished their season with an overall respectable 14-10 record, and second in the PAC with a 10-4 record.
Leading the Riders in scoring were:
Shadra Hamsher = 18pts
Mariah Goodard = 10 pts
Celeste Walters and Sophie Flinner each with 9pts
Celeste Walters = 10
Lillian Suppan and Mikaila Carpenter each with 6
