COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Lady Clippers return five starters from last year’s 11-win team.

Tori Long, Camile Zentner and Cassie Spaite all return as seniors. Junior Addie Zohnd and sophomore Alaina Johnson also are back in the fold.

“We always have our sights set on an EOAC title,” said Coach Dave Crismon. “We want to compete at a high level in both league play and in [non-conference] play.”

Columbiana was edged last year in the Sectional Final against Champion (49-48) after topping Pymatuning Valley (56-37) in their playoff opener.

“We feel like we have a solid group of seniors who will lead us,” Crismon comments. “We also have a talented group of underclassmen who I think will bring a competitive feel to each and every practice.”

Columbiana opens the season on November 20 with a home date against Cardinal Mooney.
