Most county girls cage teams off to slow start

Clermont County’s varsity girls high school basketball teams have mostly begun their respective campaigns very slowly.

Not one of the county’s distaff squads has a winning record in the early goings. Most victories have come against fellow county teams.

Some of the teams such as Batavia’s Bulldogs, Bethel-Tate’s Fighting Tigers, Glen Este’s Trojans, and Milford’s E-Gals have shown promise of having upcoming successful campaigns.


The Barons began their season with a 57-51 victory over Goshen in inner-county non-conference action.

The visiting Warriors were ahead 16-10 after the first quarter, fell behind 28-24 at halftime, and recovered to tie the tally at 39 going into the final quarter.

Ashley Crutcher made 16 points to lead the winning offense and Morgan Sperry and Kelly Madigan added 13 and 11 points, respectively.
