Goshen, New Richmond, and Williamsburg open county’s girls sectional tournament action

Tournament time for Clermont County’s high school varsity girls basketball teams is upon us. Three of the county’s squads will get underway right away.

Division II

Goshen (number-two seed) versus New Richmond (number-12 seed), Feb. 13, 6 p. m., at Mason High School.

Both teams are members of the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division. Goshen is in first place in the division.

“It was pretty good getting the number-two seed considering all the city schools voting,” said Jim Bowling, Goshen head coach. “It was not a good draw, though, because we play New Richmond in the tournament three days after we play them in our last regular-season game.

“Playing them concerns me because they have really improved. It’s tough for anyone to play a good team in back-to-back games.

“We’re playing much better, too. I’m pleased we’re getting more people contributing in the games.”

Bowling mentioned, in particular, the contributions of sophomore forwards Melanie Constable and Amanda Simms.
