Loudonville enters this year’s Mid-Buckeye Conference season as heavy favorites. The 7x defending champions have won 30 consecutive league games and 53 out of the last 54 MBC games they have played.
Players to Watch:
: Loudonville, 5’9 SR CG – D3 State POY by the OPSWA and PGH a year ago, as well as a MaxPreps Small School All American. She has committed to play for Ashland University. Vermilya’s blend of size and skill on the perimeter is tough for most opponents. One of the state’s leading scorers and rebounders each year- and Corri is certainly going to help Loudonville in making a run come tournament time in February! (Featured Photo)
: Loudonville, 5’7 SR PG – 1st team Mid Buckeye Conference last year, and recent Tiffin commit. Sophia is a hard working guard with outstanding handles and passing ability. She is a great finisher at the rim. With a year in Loudonville’s system under her belt and a strong off-season, this could be a breakout year for Spangler. (Below with ball)
Jena Guilliams: Loudonville, 5’4 SR CG – Jena had 54 3’s a year ago! 1st team MBC last year. Perhaps the league’s top 3-point shooter. Guilliams – whose sister was an All-Ohioan at Loudonville and currently is playing at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, has made her own name for herself. She has a quick release and has played in many big games over her time in Loudonville’s rotation.
Kyleah Jones: Mansfield Christian, 6’2 SR Post – 1st team MBC last year. Mansfield Christian could give Loudonville a hard time, particularly in their All-Ohio post Kyleah Jones. She has the size and athletic ability to be a major mismatch for opponents. Look for Jones to have another strong season!
Katie Griffey: Lucas, 5’7 Soph Guard– Keep your eyes on Griffey! An athletic guard who is a strong shooter and rebounder for a young Lucas team looking to rebuild. She definitely has high potential in earning some accolades this season!
