The Lady Trojans varsity basketball squad won the 2014-15 MVL championship on Tuesday, Feb. 17, by defeating the Lady Tigers, 70-52, in Portola.

It was not easy sailing for head coach Harlon Sevier’s team throughout the entire game — after leading the Tigers 26-21 at the end of the first half, and leading by as much as 10 points in the opening minutes of the second half, the Trojans let Portola wither that lead to just one point by the end of the third period.

The Portola Lady Tigers made quick work of the Loyalton Lady Grizzlies last week at home, dispatching the non-Mid-Valley League foes in a 61-51 victory that featured a 25-point performance by junior Alli Ramelli, who also earned a double-double with 10 rebounds, and another double-digit (11-point) game from fellow junior Erin Sheridan.

The Lady Tigers led the Lady Grizzlies 28-23 going into the halftime break and were just as relentless in the second half, blasting a 33-point run that included a pair of threes from Ramelli and buckets from Sheridan, Sophia Selvaggio, Abby Folchi and Tabby Martinez.

Defensively, Ramelli also led the Tigers with 10 grabs, though she also had five assists and seven steals against Loyalton. Add a comment

With an eye to overcoming a two-point deficit at the halftime buzzer, the Greenville Lady Indians basketball squad and head coach Sue Weber had to get creative if they wanted to beat the Cougars of Paradise Adventist Academy last week at home.

Beat the Cougars they did — taking down Paradise on a 38-32 final score that was, in essence, miraculous given that Greenville threw away a 13-5 lead in the second period to go down 17-15 at halftime. The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Indians, who now sport a 7-11 overall record.
