In the Salem High School Weightroom, there’s a countdown on the whiteboard that reads “_________ days until we beat the team in green.” For the Salem Lady Quakers, it had been over 3,000 days since the last time it happened on the basketball court. Three thousand, two hundred and sixty-nine days later, on their home floor, Salem prevailed. Not only to break the streak but to set themselves up atop the EBC standings and in solid position for the first ever Eastern Buckeye Conference crown.
We had a chance to catch up with Coach Nittoli after the game and discuss the chess match that was/is West Branch vs. Salem. As well as the players that allowed the streak to be broken after nearly 10 years.
All that and more on Episode 2 of Salem Basketball Coach’s Corner with Vince Nittoli.
