Lady Rockets holds off Bucyrus to win sectional title

With her performance in Oak Harbor's 48-40 victory over Bucyrus in the Division III Sectional Final, Andrea Cecil added to her impressive resume.

Two years ago, in her first tournament game, Cecil had what was probably her most impressive performance in the postseason as she helped the Rockets rally from a nine-point, second-half deficit by scoring 17 points, including 10 in a 15-0 run that helped Oak Harbor rally to defeat Perkins, 39-38, in a Div. II Sectional Semifinal.


Port Clinton beats Fostoria to end skid

After watching an eight-point lead evaporate in the closing minutes, Port Clinton rebounded to defeat Fostoria, 51-48, and bring its seven-game winning streak to a halt.

After seeing their 43-35 lead become a 48-47 deficit on Kaleb Bemis' layup with 2:04 left to play, the Redskins rebounded, taking the lead for good at 49-48 when Joe Brenner scored inside off a pass from Ben Mueller with 30 seconds remaining before Carter Rumball's two free throws pushed the advantage to 51-48. Bemis' three-point attempt at the buzzer hit the back iron, clinching the victory for Port Clinton.


Cecil sets career scoring mark in victory 

Just one month after eclipsing the 1,000-point mark for her career, Oak Harbor junior Andrea Cecil did herself one better by scoring a career-high 40 points and breaking the career scoring record of 1,152 points in the Rockets' 80-41 victory over Elmwood. 

On Jan. 13, Cecil scored what was then a career high of 36 points in Oak Harbor's 79-58 win over Edison, a game that saw her score the 1,000th point of her career. During that game, Cecil also broke the school's single-game record of 35 points, which was held by Kelly Kretz for 33 years. And the career scoring mark, which she now holds with 1,164 points, was held for 29 years by Amy Klavinger.
