New starting line-up focused on keeping Eagles at the top

Posted

There is a lot of optimism for this year’s Hartville girls basketball team as they are returning several returning starters from a squad that finished with an 18-6 overall record.

Their postseason loss was by just three points to perennial power Strafford.

They also won a share of the Summit Conference title after finishing in a three-way tie with Gainesville and rival Mansfield.

Though they lost 17.5 points per game from graduating senior Jadalyn Keith, they are returning McKinley Sanders, Kylie Harris, Molly Brown and Jenna Kelley.

Sanders averaged 17.5 points and 6 rebounds per game a season ago as she was an All-State, All-District and All-Conference selection.

Brown was also an All-Conference selection.

Key contributors to this year’s line-up includes Kaylee Ferguson, Hannah Keith, Erin Still and Jayla Ferguson, who is recovering from an injury.

Offensively, several capable scorers will look to help the Lady Eagles be successful. Defensively, the team will look to contest all shots and finish each defensive possession with a rebound.

“Our expectations are always the same. We want to compete for a conference and district championship,” said Hartville head coach Steve Sanders.
