Lady Blackhawks return four seniors for 2021-22 basketball season.
GREENVILLE – The Mississinawa Valley Lady Blackhawks competed well in scrimmage play taking on the New Bremen Lady Cardinals and the Greenville Lady Wave basketball teams in a Tuesday night scrimmage.
“For only having a week and a half of practice we got up and down the floor really well,” said Lady Hawks coach Michael Paige. “We have a lot to work on, we have a lot of girls to sort through but I think we played really well today.”
Coach Paige welcomes back four seniors for the new season along with a host of younger players.
“We have four seniors, all of them are pretty well versed in the offense,” said Paige. “I think they are going to make a huge impact on our team – we have that senior leadership.”
“We’re young – we have a lot of young talent even though we have those four seniors, but we have a lot of talent,” Paige added. “I think we are going to surprise some people this year.”
The Lady Blackhawks hope to make an impact playing in the Western Ohio Athletic Conference (WOAC) in the league’s inaugural season.
“I like our chances,” Coach Paige said of conference play. “Obviously Tri-Village is a monster and Arcanum is pretty good but I like our chances in the conference this year.”
