On Friday, March 20 the Jerome Schottenstein Center in Columbus saw a pair of familiar teams. The Kettering Archbishop Alter Lady Knights and the West Holmes Lady Knights. The same-named teams faced each other in the Div. II state championship just a year ago with the Lady Knights of West Holmes coming out on top in that one 62-45.
This time around the two met in semi-final. And this year there would be a different result. The Lady Knights of Alter would come away with a 53-37 victory, ending West Holmes’ season one step shy of a chance of repeating as Div. II champs.
Alter’s sensational senior Emma Bockrath led all scorers with 23 points and Hayley Combs added 12 for Alter.
West Holmes was led by Alex Starr’s nine points and Alex Brown’s eight.
