CANFIELD, OHIO – There is no doubt from before the start of the season all the way to the Division II regional title game defeat, head coach Matt Reel had the Canfield Lady Cardinals laser focused on making this season a memorable one. When a team finishes a season with a 25-2 record as Canfield did, only losing one regular season game to Salem, the team is certainly a liable candidate for several postseason awards. Canfield got it done on both ends of the floor all season long, averaging 50.8 ppg as a team on offense and only allowing 32.9 ppg on the defensive end.
Canfield fell short of their goal of winning a state title, but they achieved remarkable feats that they will always remembe. With the incredible season that the Canfield Lady Cardinals had, we here at YSN are honored to select them as our 2023 girls basketball Team of the Year. Congratulations!
