LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – LaBrae jumped out to an 8-2 start last season before finishing by winning just two of their final twelve contests.

The Lady Vikings welcome back seniors Jahnya Dorsey along with Isa’acia Box (4 ppg, 5 rpg) and sophomore Marissa Levensky (5.1 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 2.1 spg). Dorsey had at least eleven games where she scored 8-points or more and eight outings where she hauled down 8 boards. Jahnya averaged 7.9 points and 7.4 rebounds for the 2021-22 season.

“We expect our players to compete every day in practice and in games,” points out coach Mandy Rowe. “We’ll have a lot of players this year to push each other to be the best. If our girls display a solid work ethic and play with effort, good things will happen.”

Rowe adds, “We want to see continued growth in our program as a whole. We had girls working hard on their individual skills throughout the summer and fall. Our players each have the ability to contribute in different ways to help our team become better.”

LaBrae begins the new season against Niles on November 21.
