GREENVILLE, Pa. (WKBN) – On March 5, Greenville accomplished a feat that no other girls’ basketball team in school history had done – win the district championship. The Trojans topped Lakeview, 46-34, at Slippery Rock to claim the crown.

Greenville advanced to the second round of the state tournament after downing Keystone Oaks (41-37). The Trojans fell to eventual state finalist Freedom in round 16.

This season, the Trojans return all five starters (Grace Cano, Anna Harpst, Josie Lewis, Sarah Mallek, Reese Schaller). Look for juniors Lily Chapman, Josie Hart and Taylor Whitesell to contribute as well as a pair of sophomores Lexis Busch and Peyton Davis.

Cano led the team in scoring (15.7) and rebounding (7.1) last year. Josie Lewis (12.5) and Anna Harpst (11.5) each averaged double-figures. Reese Schaller put together a strong stat line of 5.1 points and 6.2 rebounds while Sarah Mallek was a stat sheet stuffer as she finished by putting together 4.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.8 steals last season.

After last year’s incredible season, coach Samantha Faler pointed out, “We are approaching this year the same as we did last season. Our goal is to outwork people. We have spent so much time on the basketball court and in the weight room. We truly believe good things come to those who work hard. We believe we’ll have another successful season if we become the best version of ourselves both on and off the court.”

Greenville begins the season at the Grove City Tip-Off Tournament on December 2.
