Glen Este, Goshen, and Clermont Northeastern cagers in thick of fight for conference crowns

Glen Este’s girls have represented their school and Clermont County very well in competition versus opponents outside the county and, in particular, upstate. Last week the Trojan women won yet another game in the Greater Columbus vicinity.

Goshen holds a one-game lead over Clermont Northeastern in the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division (SBC-A). The Warriors are 9-4 overall and 6-2 in the SBC-A.

“With as young a team as we have we are doing better than I thought we would,” said Goshen head coach Jim Bowling.

His squad’s offense is lead by the highest scoring average in the area and it belongs to junior forward Staci Hicks at 23 points per game. She also leads the team with 12 rebounds per contest and is a Greater Cincinnati leader in that category, too. Senior guard Jessica McFarland is the area leader averaging 7.3 assists per battle. Their coach pointed out that junior guard Kim Steele and sophomore forward Amanda Simms have been tough on defense.
