The 8th grade Lady Knights basketball team finished up a spectacular season with a conference crown on Feb. 4 in Orrville.
Led by Callie Cline’s 14 points, the Lady Knights doubled up the Red Riders, and added one to grow on, with a 30-14 win. Cline equaled the out-put of the Red Riders all by herself.
Helping West Holmes to the title was Maddie Dewitt, who scored six points in the title victory. The defensive effort by the Lady Knights might have been the story though, holding Orrville to just 14 points.
Over the past two seasons, the Lady Knights own a ridiculous 35-1 record. The loss coming by just one point. As 7th graders, this team also won the conference championship. The impressive run now ends with back-to-back titles.
A 31-17 win over Madison put the Lady Knights in the title game. They were also back-to-back OCC champs.
