POLAND OH- Its been a long season of Big Dogs Of The Valley brought to you by Baird Brothers. To win Big Dog of the Year, not only do you have to win the weekly poll against the regular season, but you also have to win two sets of polls against fellow winners. It is a great testament to a community to have a player named Big Dog of the Year. The votes this season are in and Poland was the fanbase that clicked the most. Your 2023 Big Dog of the Year in girls basketball is Bulldog junior Mary Brant.
Mary brought a ton of leadership to the Bulldogs roster this season. In a year that a lot of people undervalued the team, the Bulldogs still won yet another NE8 championship. Brant was also named first team All NE8 by the coaches of the conference. Congratulations again to the Poland community, and to Mary Brant on winning the 2023 Baird Brothers Big Dog of the Year!
