A gallant run
With Beachwood’s attention certain to be focused on Geena Gabriel, Pymatuning Valley coach Jeff Compan’s plan Wednesday night was to utilize the pick-and-roll. The Beachwood Bison were able to thwart it, and eventually frustration set in, as did the only loss of the year for the Lakers.

With all the excitement this week with the Geneva and Pymatuning Valley girls involved in regional tournament play, it would be easy for what has become a rite of passage in this area for more than three decades to get lost in the shuffle.

There’s an adage in sports that if a team hangs around long enough, it will start to believe.
After a slow start, the Geneva girls basketball team scratched and clawed its way back into its regional semifinal battle with Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary on Tuesday night at Barberton High School. Once in the game, the Eagles began to believe and battled the Fighting Irish nearly every step of the way before falling short, 45-33.
25, going after 26!
The Pymatuning Valley girls basketball team has already rewritten the team’s record book. The Lakers’ however, still have more than add to their legacy they’ve put in place.

The fast track
With the wrestling and boys basketball seasons having the curtain dropped on them, and with girls basketball season roundin’ third and headed for home, a slight change of pace would be welcomed with open arms.
