WARREN OH- The Champion girls sports programs have a high standard of winning. From soccer, to basketball, to softball the Golden Flashes expect tow win a lot of games, and to be in the discussion come tournament time. This year is no different, the Champion girls basketball program has been voted the four seed in the tournament and looks to repeat as district champions and get back to regionals. Leading the way this season is senior Emma Gumont.

Emma had a strong junior season in 2019-2020, she put in her 1000th point as a junior, which is not something you see too often. She also had a 30+ point performance in last season’s district championship against Garfield. So what goals could she possible have for this season after completing so much already? Well she wants to focus more on her teammates this season. Coming in to the year Emma knew there would be a lot of new faces on the floor this season for Champion. She has done her best to encourage the new comers to be the best they can be. Now as they approach the end of the season, Champion seems to have finally gotten in sync after a late start due to Trumbull count shutting down during the month of December. Things are looking bright for the Flashes and senior Emma Gumont is going to give it everything she has to extend her last go around the basketball court.

Emma is signed on to play softball at the next level with Notre Dame College. She says softball is always on the mind, and everyone is excited to finally get a spring high school season. The area certainly knows what her and her softball team at Champion are capable of.

Emma was kind enough to take the time to talk with Anthony Hartwig about her senior campaign and her career at Champion. They discuss what fuels the winning culture at Champion, the community support, and much more. It’s time to meet one of the area’s most well rounded student athletes in the latest Champion Basketball player profile “Gumont Gives It One Last Go”

The start of the new season for the Poland Lady Bulldogs looks very similar to the start last season when they won by two at Salem. This time around they escaped Champion with a 52-49 win.

The Bulldogs had to deal with a very slow offensive start. Plagued by turnovers Poland couldn’t find a rhythm in the beginning stages of the game. However Jackie Grisdale and Brooke Bobbey both covered up the miscues with three pointers. Poland’s shut down defense didn’t miss a beat, holding down Champion while their offense worked things out. Poland trailed 12-10 after one quarter.

Poland opened the second quarter with a 9-0 rally and it looked like they were going to run away with the game. The Flashes fought back though, answering with a 6-2 run as the half dwindled down. Bobbey hit her second three of the game before the halftime buzzer to give the Bulldogs some breathing room heading into the locker room with a 24-18 lead.

Champion outscored the Bulldogs 16-10 in the third quarter helped out tremendously by the work of Emma Gumont down low. After three the game was tied 34-34 and it promised to be an exciting finish.

After the teams traded points back and forth for the first couple minutes of the fourth, the perimeter game came in to effect for Poland. Grisdale and Bobbey both hit threes late to give Poland breathing room. With a 46-40 lead the Bulldogs found themselves in a position to win the game at the foul line. They struggled though to knock down free throws down the stretch which gave Champion the opportunity to inch closer and closer. The Bulldogs went to the line leading by 2 with about 10 seconds left. They hit one out of two to make it 52-49, but it also gave Champion a last shot opportunity. Grisdale stole the ball away to deny them that chance and Poland escaped with a 52-49 win.

Jackie Grisdale led the way with a strong 26 point performance going 4/8 from three. Brooke Bobbey also finished in double figures with 12.

Poland stays on the road traveling to Struthers on Thursday night.
