EAST PALESTINE, OH- South Range’s Bree Kohler has been named 2021 Your Sports Network Softball Player of the Year.

Kohler got it done at a high level this season on both sides of the diamond, defensively, Kohler ranked among the top slingers in the circle with a 17-2 record that accumulated 119.2 innings pitched and recorded one save on the year.  BK will eclipse the 200-strikeout mark this season before it’s over as she sits on 199 at the time of publication.  Combine that with only giving up 18 free passes on the campaign leads the senior standout to a 1.17 ERA with a WHIP of .752.

Offensively, Bree exploded as well with a .491 average from the dish.  From that, Kohler launched 12 home runs, and pushed across 62 RBI’s as well for the Lady Raiders, all the while crossing the dish 54 times herself.  Kohler’s OBP was at .504 on the campaign, while her slugging percentage and OPS were through the roof at 1.036 and 1.540, respectively.

Atop of all the major statistics lies the one that stood out the most among voters at YSN: Kohler was struck out once all season long (125 plate appearances.)

Bree will pursue her academic and athletic interests next season with Youngstown State University, a commitment she made her freshmen season.

Congratulations to South Range’s Bree Kohler, the 2021 YSN Softball Player of the Year.


CANFIELD OH- South Range has asserted their dominance over area teams yet again in the 2021 softball season. The Raiders have been a mainstay with the top programs in the valley for over a decade. This season, they only brought two seniors to the table. However, one of those seniors is the highly regarded Bree Kohler. Bree has been in the circle giving other teams problems since her freshman season, she has also been committed to Youngstown State since her freshman year.

Kohler knew after the lost 2020 season, that this Raiders team would have a lot of faces that were new to the varsity level. In fact, they only returned 3 starters from their 2019 District Championship team. But the fact that she hasn’t put on the South Range uniform on since her sophomore season did not phase Bree. She has stepped up as a senior leader and has given the young South Range roster plenty of confidence.

South Range won the 2021 district championship in LaBrae over the three time defending champion Champion. Kohler hit the go ahead solo HR in the 5th, and then shut down the Flashes impressive offense the rest of the way. In the game before, Kohler threw a perfect game in South Range’s 10-0 win over Kirtland.

Kohler has put up fantastic numbers this year both in the circle and at the plate. She has started 16 games in the circle and has a record of 15-2. She has thrown 105.1 IP, and has an ERA of 1.19. Kohler has struck out 174, and only walked 17. At the plate Bree leads her team in many categories. Kohler is currently hitting .510 with 11 HR and 60 RBI. Of Bree’s 53 hits, 24 of them are extra base hits. She has 11 triples and 2 doubles. The district championship win over Champion gives Bree a total of 7 district championship medals spanning over 3 sports.

Bree took the time to once again sit down with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig as she has done many times in her athletic career at South Range. They discuss losing her junior season, being a successful athlete in multiple sports, and much much more. Don’t miss the last Player Profile interview with Bree as she closes out her final senior season.

CANFIELD OH- South Range Senior Bree Kohler has been starting on the Raiders varsity squad since she was a freshman. She came on and made an immediate impact on the Raiders program. As she goes into her senior season, the goals for her and her team have never been higher. Last season the Raiders got very close to a trip to the state final four, and everyone is hungry to get back, including a Kohler.

This season has not been a breeze for Bree however, just two weeks ago Bree tore her PCL in a game against Struthers. Determination and an unmatched work ethic have pushed Bree back on the court just two weeks later.

Kohler is officially signed on to play softball at the next level for the YSU Penguins next season.

Bree took the time to catch up with YSN again this season for a glimpse into her senior year. She’s been a mainstay on YSN over the years, and it’s time once again to catch up with Kohler. Check out the latest Lady Raider basketball player profile.



CANFIELD OH- Last season, Mooney beat South Range By 10 points, and it was a turning point to their year. The Raiders still used that loss as a rallying tool, as they had no problems with Mooney this time around with a 70-26 win. The Raiders got the victory on senior night where the honored Izzy Lamparty, Bree Kohler, Sophia Lowry, and student manager Macy Slabach.

Lamparty led the Raiders with a double double. She finished with 26 points, and 15 rebounds. Gabby Lamparty and Lexi Giles both finished in double figures with 13. Bree Kohler has 8 points, and 5 steals.

The Raiders can look ahead to their holiday hoops event on Monday where they will play Boardman at 5:00. Mooney is scheduled to travel to Valley Christian on Wednesday.


CANFIELD OH- South Range did not shy away from a big challenge on Saturday as they welcomed in Division 1 powerhouse Akron Hoban. It was a battle to the end with the Knights outlasting the Raiders in an overtime thriller 92-83.

The Raiders grabbed a lead out of the gates, but it was clear from the tip that the game was going to be high tempo and high scoring. Both teams used their athleticism to trade transition buckets. After one quarter of play Hoban led 21-16.

In the second frame with a couple of players in foul trouble, it was the Raiders bench that came in and kept the pace for their offense. Emma Cunningham, and Hannah Crouse Player well in the quarter to keep it close. Crouse got a bucket at the end of the half to bring the Raiders within 3 at the break 40-37.

The Raiders opened the second half on a 8-0 run. Like most of the night though, moderate leads went away fast. Before a blink of an eye Hoban took a lead back and led 63-59 after 3. Izzy Lamparty had a great third quarter scoring 13 points in the frame with 5 rebounds.

The final frame was the lowest scoring quarter of the game, as the Raiders held Hoban to 13 points. With a break out layup by Izzy Lamparty the Raiders took a 76-74 lead with around 26 seconds left. Hoban’s Abby Stephens who didn’t score much in the game went to the free throw line and tied the game at 76 with 12 seconds left. Bree Kohler drove straight down the court but couldn’t finish a game winning shot, the Knights brought down the rebound and had 4 seconds to get down the floor. They very nearly did, but Hoban couldn’t get a shot off and the teams headed to overtime tied at 76.

The Knights outlasted a tired Raiders team in overtime, outscoring then 16-7 to win 92-83. The combined score of 175 points is the highest scoring game in South Range Girls Basketball history. The previous record was 147 in a 75-72 South Range win over Jackson Milton on February 8th, 2000.

For the Knights, they had an unbelievable performance from junior Lanae Riley who dropped 47 points in the game.

South Range was led by Izzy Lamparty who finished with 28 points. 21 of her points came in the second half. Lexi Giles had a strong night right behind her with 26. Bree Kohler was also in double figures with 10 points.


CUYAHOGA FALLS OH- South Range was ready to go Saturday for their first regional championship in program history. They fell in a hard fought game to Elyria Catholic 51-37.

The Raiders jumped out to a impressive start, much like their semifinal win against Champion. They forced turnovers, and jumped out to an 11-4 lead in the first frame. Elyria calmed themselves down quick though and ended the quarter on a 5-0 run to only trail 11-9 after a quarter. The Panthers has 8 seniors on their roster, and this was their third straight regional championship. That experience helped them out a ton in moments where most teams would panic. Their defense, especially down low gave the Raiders problems in the second quarter. Lexi Giles hit a couple threes in the frame to save the Raiders from a disasterous halftime deficit. Instead, it was only three, 22-19.

Out of the half Elyria would create the separation they would need. The Panthers put together a 7-0 run out of the break to go up 29-18. With the way the Panthers were playing defense, 11 points felt like 20. However, the ever resilient Raiders scrapped back to close the quarter on a 10-4 run and make it 32-28 heading into the 4th. Elyria once again pushed forward to start the final frame. They got their lead back up to 9, but Izzy Lamparty gave the Raiders a four point swing grabbing an offensive rebound off a missed second free throw, putting in the bucket, and hitting the foul shot with it. It cut the Panther lead to 41-36. Unfortunately that was the Raiders last gasp as Elyria used a flurry of free throws towards the end of the game to go on a 10-1 run.

Izzy Lamparty led the Raiders with 13 points. Lexi Giles hit three treys and finished with 12. Bree Kohler was also in double figure with 10.

The Raiders end their season with a 21-7 record, and earn their first regional finalist trophy as a program.


STRUTHERS OH- South Range got three scorers in double figures on their way to a dominant 58-28 win over Columbiana on Wednesday night.

The Raiders has an electric first hatter. Thanks in part to the Lamparty sisters. Gabby and Izzy combined for the first 7 points of the contest. The Clippers struggled to guard Izzy all night. The Raiders held a 17-7 lead after the first quarter.

The second quarter was when the Raiders stormed ahead. They outscored the Clippers 15-5 in the frame. Those 5 Columbiana points also came in the first minutes of the quarter, so the Raiders ended the half on a 13-0 run.

The second half brought more of the same story. Columbiana just couldn’t find enough consistent scoring to make a comeback attempt, A big boost for the Raiders defense was holding the Clippers leading scorer Kayla Muslovski scoreless in the game.

South Range was led by Izzy Lamparty with 20 points. Bree Kohler had a tremendous night adding 15. Lexi Giles was also in double figures with 14.

Columbiana was led by both Grace Witmer and Grace Hammond with 8 a piece.

South Range advances to the district championship game Saturday night against Crestview. The tip is slated for 7:00 at Struthers.


JEFFERSON OH- The South Range girl’s program finished off their regular season Monday night with a 64-37 victory over Jefferson. This was a make up game from February 6th.

The Raiders used a strong first frame to pace a dominating night in Jefferson. Gabby Lamparty scores 8 of her 14 points in the first. The Raiders jumped ahead 23-11 at the end of one. That would be more than enough room to hold off the Falcons for the rest of the night.

The Raiders offense was balanced with four players reaching double figures. Izzy Lamparty led the way with 20 points. Gabby Lamparty added 14 while Lexi Giles finished with 11 and Bree Kohler with 10.

Ava Contenza led Jefferson with 12 points.

CANFIELD, OH- The South Range girls Basketball team had a great showing in the win over Lakeview, 52-21.

The Lady Raiders are coming off a loss to Poland and needed a good game from start to finish and they did so. The Raiders started the game out strong and fast, which they carried until the finish. Lakeview slowly fought back and cut the lead down late in the game.But South Range countered every chance for Lakeview.

Izzy Lamparty was a key factor for the Raiders with 20 points and 6 rebounds. Lexi Giles had a great night from 3 hitting 3 from the perimeter and also grabbed 5 rebounds.

Two girls basketball powerhouses met in Poland on Monday as the Bulldogs hosted South Range. Last season these teams were one and two in the final NE8 standings, although both matchups between the two were double figure wins for Poland. That would not be the case this time as Poland scratched and clawed to a close 37-29 win.

It was a back and forth game of runs. Poland opened the game fast on a 10-2 run and looked to be cruising. The majority of the 2nd quarter belonged to South Range though as Bree Kohler got a couple of steals and fast break layups in a 14-5 run taking a 16-15 lead. Poland would not be silenced however as they ended the first half on a 7-0 run to take a 22-16 lead into the locker room.

The Raiders came out swinging to open the third. They spurted out to a 7-0 run themselves to go-ahead 23-22. Poland responded yet again however, they answered the Raiders run with an 11-0 one to close out the third frame.

With a ten point lead going into the final frame Poland looked poised for a win. But the scrappy Raiders team would not go away. They made it 33-29 closing quick before Poland’s defense locked down during the final stretch. Four free throws would seal the deal for the Bulldogs and they escaped a physical fight with the Raiders 37-29.

Jackie Grisdale led the Bulldogs with 17 points and 8 rebounds. Lizzy Herdman has a strong night on the boards with 9 rebounds. Morgan Kluchar was also in double figures with 12.

Izzy Lamparty was the statistical leader for the Raiders with 10 points 5 rebounds. Bree Kohler added 8.

South Range returns to action Thursday as they host Hubbard.

Poland gets back on the floor Saturday as they host Boardman as part of the United Way Classic. Their trip is scheduled for approximately 5:15.
