The Port Clinton Lady Redskins have improved their overall record in each of the last three years. This year is looking very good, as the Port Clinton girls have opened their season at 2-0.
They defeated Woodmore, 39-36, last Friday and Sandusky, 64-37. Da’Carilya Lanier had led the way with 19 points against Woodmore and 32 points to top Sandusky. Lanier also set the career record for 3-pointers with 39 in the Sandusky game with her 90th. She broke Hope Thorbahn’s record of 89.
Claudia Gillum has scored 17 points through 2 games and has collected a team high 20 rebounds in 2 games.
“I am very pleased with our start as the girls are working hard and
improving daily,” said Coach Belden this week. Coach Kevin Belden is optimistic and with good reason. He has six letter winners returning
from an 8-14 team from last year. Among those returnees is junior Lanier,
who averaged over 20 points per game last season and recently set a school record for 3-point field goals in a win over Sandusky last week.
Also returning are Claudia Gillum, who averaged 8 rebounds a game last year; Tylor Bollinger and Keileen Fullenkamp. Belden also expects to get significant contributions from Olivia Spencer, Olivia Emerson, Erieyanna Buckley, Chloe Klein and Maria Sanders.
