LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference (MVAC) will begin its’ first basketball season with two tiers. The newest members will be aligned in the Grey Tier. Those schools were affiliated with the All-American Conference (Blue Tier) last year.

LaBrae Vikings
Coach: Mandy Rowe
2019-20 Record: 13-10 (5-7, AAC Blue)
Returning Starters: Seniors – Jenna Reppart and Lenox McConaughey. Junior – Briley Daniels. Sophomore – Laura McCoy
…”If our girls continue to display a solid work ethic and play with effort – good things will happen,” points out coach Rowe. “We return many players that will be looked upon to contribute every day. We graduated three girls last year – who all had a great impact. We’ll be looking to our upperclassmen to fill leadership roles. We tell our players that each one of them has the ability to contribute in different ways to help our team become better.”
