YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – In early May, Ursuline hired Bernard Scott as their head girls’ basketball coach. The former Villa Angela-standout coached at Campbell Memorial last year. Prior to his stay in the 44405-zip code, he spent time leading the Detroit Titans’ women’s basketball team for 5 seasons as he also had stints assisting in the college ranks at Youngstown State, Cleveland State, Arizona, Toledo and Dayton.

Ursuline graduated guards Rachel Fabry and Jamie Nelson along with Cara McNally and Anisah Moorman from last year’s group. The Irish return one starter from last year’s team in junior forward Alayna Smith. Coach Scott will also rely on fellow junior Grace Leslie and a pair of sophomores Lily Scott and Meredith Gray.

Scott states, “The expectations are to always play hard, always be prepared and always put the team first. Everything else will take care of itself if we have these three things consistently.”

The Irish are seeking their first District championship since 2011.

Ursuline is set to begin the season on November 27 when they welcome Hubbard.
