NEW MIDDLETOWN OH- Here comes Springfield ready or not. They have been led to the mountain tops yet again.  For the second straight season the Tigers have won a district championship, and earned a trip to regional semifinals.  The Tigers knew coming in to this season that to compete at a regional level they would need to level up on defense.  They have absolutely done that. The Tigers defense has only given up 33.8 points per game.  One of the hallmarks of their stout defense is Ava Vecchione.

Ava has had the hard task this season of being put on every opponents best scorer.  The Tigers coaching staff trusts her the most for guarding talent.  Ava knew how much her defense would be relied on coming in to the year. She worked almost exclusively on her defensive craft heading into the year.  Ava averages over a steal per game as the Tigers average over 10 per game.  Ava has also increased her ball handling ability. She has become a great facilitator on the offense. She averages 2 assists per game.  She has scored over 100 points this season, and averages 4.5 per contest.  She is a Vidal asset in the Tigers success and we had to make sure she didn’t go under the radar.

Ava took the time to hop on an interview with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig to talk about her season, and the Tigers success.  They talk about the uprising of this program, the work she put in in the off-season, and so much more. Check out the latest Springfield Player Profile only on YSN.
