After a tough loss on Friday night to Nordonia, the South Range Lady Raiders turned things around with a win Saturday over Cleveland Shaw 58-23.

The scoring started quickly as Lexi Gules nailed a three in the Raiders’ first possession. This seemed to loosen things up for the offense, who shot a lot better than the night before. The defense of the Raiders played just as hard as they did to open the season. They used physical pressure defense to force turnovers that lead to quick buckets. They held Shaw to just 12 first half points. Another key to success was the wonderful passing ability of the team. As a group, the Raiders finished with 16 assists, led by freshman Gabby Lamparty.

Izzy Lamparty led the offense with 18 points and 7 rebounds. Lexi Giles was also in double figures finishing with 10.

The Raiders return to action Thursday night as they travel to Lakeview to open NE8 play.


HOWLAND OH- The South Range Lady Raiders opened their season at the Toni Ross Foundation Tournament at Howland on Friday night. They fell to Nordonia 48-22.

The Raiders struggled from the tip to get anything going against the Knights. Nordonia’s athleticism and pressure defense caused fits for the Raiders ball handlers. To add to their bad fortune, the Raiders couldn’t seem to buy a bucket from the field. They did however get some very tough shots to fall, showing flashes of their ability to complete tough finishes. On defense the Raiders held the Knights to their lowest offensive output in their young season. The other opponents for Nordonia were Hoover, and Buchtel. Two teams that went far in the tournament a season ago.

Izzy Lamparty led the offense with 8 points and 6 rebounds. Lexi Giles has 6 points and 5 rebounds.

The Raiders will look to bounce back Saturday night as they’ll play the loser of Howland vs Cleveland Shaw in the varsity consolation game. Tip off will be at 6:00 at Howland High School.
