Clermont County’s varsity girls basketball squads are very much into their mid-season competition and not too distant from actually drawing for their respective opening round of tournament opponents.
“I expected a little bit more from them than what we’ve gotten to this point of the season, but they’re finally realizing their potential,” said Katrina Seis, head coach of the Red and Gray.
Her charges are posing a serious challenge in the Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC) American Division race.
Positive proof for their coach is the Tigers recently defeated East Cliinton Astro’s who were tied with Batavia for first place in the SBC National Division.
“They definitely improving. They’re playing much better as a team and putting together four good quarters of basketball,” Seis concluded.
Senior point guard Emily Tyler paces the team with her 12.0 scoring average. Junior pivot Chelsea Allen and freshman forward/guard Tess Jenike are dropping in more than eight points per contest. Tyler is among the leaders in all of Greater Cincinnati by averaging eight steals and five assists per outiing. She is receiving good defensive help from junior guard Ally Wallaace who is also the rebound leader at more then eight per game.
