SPECIAL OLYMPICS LADY WILDCATS BASKETBALL TAKE SECOND AT STATE

The Wood County Lady Wildcats roared to second place in the Division 2 Ohio Special Olympics State Basketball Tournament.

The Lady Wildcats faced Delaware County at St. Francis High School in New Philadelphia. Wood County defeated Delaware 26-10. The Lady Wildcats played very aggressively scoring 18 points the first half to Delaware’s 8. The second half the Lady Wildcats added 8 points and Delaware scored 2 points. Leaders for the Lady Wildcats were Maggie Beeker with 20 points and a basket each for Anne Schooley, Maggie Hunt and Katie Rupert.

In the championship game the following day, the Lady Wildcats played against a tough Stark County team on the Kent State Tuscarawas Campus. The final score was 44-26 with Stark County coming up on top. The Lady Wildcats scored 13 points in each half. Beeker led the team with 13 points; Rupert added 6 points; 2 points each for Tonya Gebby, Maggie Hunt and Schooley; and Kim Paxton with a free throw.

Coach Emma Blank observed the Lady Wildcats’ improvement as a team throughout the season.

“They did a great job moving the ball around the court utilizing each other,” said Coach Emma Blank. “In practice we worked hard on looking for each other and calling out. I saw their efforts really pay off in each game they played.”

To get to the State Basketball Tournament, Wood County won 49-33 against Huron County in the Area Tournament on March 3. They advanced to the West Section Tournament on March 8 winning 31-25 against Wyandot County. During the season, the Lady Wildcats played Lucas, Henry and Sandusky Counties.
