Not ready for the final buzzer

Girls basketball players enjoy friendships made and lessons learned

While they believe there is much to look forward to next year, the players on the Medina High School girls varsity basketball team aren’t ready for the current season to come to an end.

The team’s three seniors, Clover Kaple, Jessie Holzman and Margaret Swiecicki will be missed by the underclassmen for more than their skills on the court.

“This program has taught me a lot about being successful and climbing through obstacles,” said Junior Anna Marie Smith. “It’s a great experience and has built my character.”

A highlight this season was when the team traveled to Orlando, Florida, to play in the KSA Holiday Tournament. Overall as a team, they played well and fed off of each other’s good plays and energy. The varsity team played hard in the championship game and ended up winning first place in the tournament.

Even though the seniors will be missed, and this season is not over yet, the team is already looking forward to next season. 

“There’s a lot of good stuff going for Medina Girls Basketball next year,” said Junior Delaney Cullen.

On Thursday, February 18, 2016 the MHS girls defeated Parma 44-36 making them sectional champions.

The Bees will advance to the District Tournament hosted by Valley Forge High School in Parma Heights, Monday, February 22 at  6 pm.  The Bees enter the tournament as the #3 seed taking on #2 seed St. Joseph Academy Jaguars.

Advance sale tickets will be available Monday in the MHS Athletic office.
