NEWTON FALLS, Ohio (WKBN) – Newton Falls made their way through the first three rounds of the 2021 playoffs by outscoring their opponents by 29-points during that span before falling to McDonald in the District Final.

The Lady Tigers graduated all 5 senior starters. “We’ll be very young and inexperienced,” indicates coach Mark Baker, “but, the young kids have talent and will look to compete in a very strong conference. As the season progresses, hopefully their gained experience will show.”

Newton Falls returns a handful of juniors (Shelby Fowler, Natalee Albert, Jazzi Dangerfield, Ashley Harvey) and a strong sophomore class (Danielle Drake, Chloe Butler, Gigi Morgan, Aubrey Cadle). “Shelby is a returning letter winner,” Baker states. “She’ll provide much-needed offense as well as defense. Natalee is an all-league player. She shot close to 40% from beyond the three-point line, so she’ll be expected to score for us.”

The Tigers open play on November 22 against Mineral Ridge at home.
