The Rocky River Lady Ravens varsity Girls Basketball Team is looking to rebuild upon an outstanding 2016-17 season.  The team accumulated a 21-8 overall record and was 10-2 in the SW4A Conference.  The Lady Ravens averaged 63.0 points per game.  They won the SW4A title, advanced to the third round of the State 4A Playoffs.  First year Head Coach Shatorie Jones will have her work cut-out for her to repeat last years success.  The team lost five seniors to graduation and a total of seven of eight players.  Therefore, this should be a rebuilding year for the Ravens.

Returning Starters – Junior Andre’ Sia Alexander, 5’2″ PG.

Newcomers to Watch – Sophomore Mashya Scott, 5’6″ SG.

As mentioned above Coach Jones will have a challenge to reload this basketball team with only one starter returning in Alexander who averaged 10 points per game.  The team will be young and the new players must grow up quickly and respond to compete and potentially repeat last years dominance which will be a challenge.  However, the girls are quick, aggressive, can score outside the paint and if they can control the boards close to the 25.8 rebounds the Lady Ravens averaged last season they could make things interesting.  Only time will tell how this will all play out over the campaign.  With their being no seniors, the girls will be able to build together and develop as a cohesive team.

Rocky River will open up their season on the road in a non-conference game against the Olympic High School Trojans on Tuesday November 14th at 7 pm.
