Two Lady Knights to be honored as part of the 2017 Ashland Eagles national championship team

A pair of all-time greats in the West Holmes Lady Knights’ basketball program will be honored before the Lady Knights’ varsity basketball game against Lexington on Thursday, Jan. 25.

Laina Snyder and Rachelle Morrison, both integral parts of the Ashland University Eagles’ 2017 women’s national championship basketball team, will be in attendance between the junior varsity and varsity game, where they will be honored for their part in the Eagles’ incredible accomplishment.

The public is invited to come and share in the honoring of these two great athletes for helping the Eagles achieve a national crown. The special ceremony will take place at approximately 7-7:15 p.m., depending on the length of the junior varsity game.

While at West Holmes, Snyder was the key cog of three straight state tournament appearances for the Lady Knights, the final one of those three culminating in a state championship. Morrison played a large role in the first two of those treks to state.

Snyder currently ranks third on the all-time scoring list at West Holmes while holding the career rebounding record for the Lady Knights. She also earned First Team All-Ohio honors in her junior and senior year and was tabbed as the Div. II Co-Player of the Year in Ohio in the 2013-14 season. She recently set the all-time career rebounding mark for the Eagles and continues inching her way up toward the all-time career scoring mark.
