The Bay High girls basketball team completed an excellent season this winter, ending with a 19-3 record after a 42-38 loss to Padua in the district semifinals on Feb. 23.
While the loss was a disappointment, it does not take away from the great strides Bay has made the past three seasons. Bay has improved from being 6-16 two years ago and 11-11 last year to this season’s 19-3 mark. Winning a sectional title, Bay also ended the year as runner-up to Elyria Catholic in the Great Lakes Conference.
“We’re relatively still young. The team has just three seniors,” said Hill. “We’re pretty well balanced. We really don’t have anyone with really outrageous stats, although Maddie Edgerly starting as a freshman with 7 ppg and 12 rebounds is a real talent.
“The one stat that has kind of shocked everyone is the turnover advantage we are averaging per game. We are averaging 30 turnovers per game, running a 1-3-1 trap. I am just very proud of these girls and the commitment they have made to our program.”
Seniors on this year’s team include Lauren Heldt, Annie Peters and Nora Ziebarth.
