SOUTH RANGE GIRKS BASKETBALL COACH’S CORNER (EP 2) WITH JEFF FISHEL

CANFIELD OH- Jeff Fishel has officially begun his fourth season as the head coach of South Range girls basketball. Fourth years are always exciting to see how the players have developed over their entire high school career. This season has started much like last season. The Raiders scheduled two very tough opponents to open the gates. Edgewood and Boardman both handled South Range and put them in a position where hitting the panic button wouldve been easy.  But that’s not how this program operates.  Last they started 0-2, and still went on to be one win away from an NE8 championship.  They didn’t let the start phase them this year either. After their opening losses, the Raiders took care of their first two league opponents in Hubbard and Jefferson. Now it sets up the game that has decided the conference every year, the match up with Poland.  Poland vs South Range round 1 of this season is set for Thursday at 7:00.

Coach Fishel took the time to catch up with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig to talk about bouncing back from the tough start, his confidence in this group of players, and much more. Get ready for the week ahead with Episode 2 of Coach’s Corner with Jeff Fishel.

SOUTH RANGE GIRLS BASKETBALL COACH’S CORNER (EP 9) WITH JEFF FISHEL

CANFIELD OH- One step closer. Although the Raiders have kept the day by day mentality, they have also been clear that getting to the state tournaments in Dayton felt like a tangible goal. Well, after Tuesday night’s 51-44 win over Warrensville Heights, the Raiders find themselves one win away from a trip to Dayton. People on the outside have been expecting this since the end of last season after the Raiders were just a few plays away from getting to state. Returning virtually everyone, the expectations were real. Those messages and expectations were kept away from th team though, that is until now when the day by day mentality has gotten them to a regional final. The Raiders will play Waynedale for a trip to Dayton on Saturday at 1:30 at Cuyahoga Falls High School.

Jeff Fishel caught up with Anthony Hartwig again this week to recap the regional semifinal win over Warrensville Heights. Also discussed in this episode is a preview of the regional championship, what it took for the Raiders to get here, and much more. Hear from coach Fishel ahead of their regional championship match up in Episode 9 of Coach’s Corner with Jeff Fishel.
