CAMPBELL OH- Both teams needed a new start for the new year and one team was able to pull away early and not look back as the Lady Red Dragons got their fourth win of the season and first in 2023 50-23 against the Lady Red Devils of Campbell.
Because of no Junior Varsity game, coach Bernard Bolha decided to change it up a bit. First due to an injury to Alaina Thigpen, Jules Money got the start. Second, he decided to swap benches in the rotation. That led to Emily Macik being the highest scorer with 13 points. Abbey Reed finished with 10 points, Brooke Money, Kennedy Barrell and Katie Heinselman combined for six points, Caroline Cornell and Hannah Grimm combined for eight points, six for Jules Money and five for Gianna Wagner.
For Campbell, leading the pack was Diamon Sims with 12 points, five for Amira Kamal, four for Brooke Thomas and a combined four points for Le’Asia Miller and Cha’Deja Marshall. Campbell will host Newton Falls next while Niles will travel to Girard for the battle of 422.
After the coach, Ian O’Brien caught up with coach Bernard Bolha and player of the game Emily Macik.
