Per the OHSAA, the 2020 Winter postseason tournament will be canceled due to COVID-19. This will end our 2019-20 girls basketball season. In the press release, OHSAA stated they will not crown a state champion for this year (you can read the full release at www.ohsaa.org). While this is not the way we wanted the season to end, I would encourage everyone to remain positive in these unprecedented times. As we have signs hanging all around the school hallways, “life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react”. So, lets look at some of the positives the Lady Redskins have accomplished for this year:
- SCAL Champs – 12-0
- #1 ranking in the AP Poll
- District Champs
- Regional Champs
- 1st team in school history to finish the season undefeated – 26-0
- School record for PPG allowed
- School record for APG
- School record for SPG
- SCAL Player of the Year (Dana Rose)
- 5 named to the All-SCAL team (Rose, Meiring, Sholtis, Hoelscher, Ratermann)
- 4 named to the All-SW District team (Rose, Meiring, Sholtis, Hoelscher)
- 3 named to the All-Ohio Team (Rose, Meiring, Sholtis)
- 3 named to the Academic All-Ohio Team (Meiring, Gephart, Ratermann)
These are just some of the honors that the Lady Redskins received for an outstanding season. I think it is safe to say that they made Fort Loramie proud in the way they handled themselves on and off the court. THANK YOU ladies for a season to remember.
*OHSAA will be working on ways to recognize the remaining participants in the tournament. We will also be looking into ways to honor this season.
