In defeating Bishop Watterson 48-42 on Saturday, the Reynoldsburg Girls Basketball team has remarkably claimed their 7th District Title in the last 8 years!
The Lady Raiders got off to a bit of a slow start this time around at Ohio Dominican University as Watterson raced to a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, but the Raiders found their footing by hitting some shots and applying pressure full-court defense to outscore the Eagles 25-6 and led 28-20 at Halftime. Watterson cut the lead to a single possession on a couple of occasions in the second half, but the Raiders (22-4) never trailed and held on for the victory and yet another District Championship.
The undefeated and top ranked Newark Wildcats will be the Regional Semifinal opponent on Tuesday night at 8:00pm at Otterbein’s Rike Center. Newark defeated the Lady Raiders back in December, but Reynoldsburg is also the last team to defeat the Wildcats – doing so at Otterbein almost a year ago in the 2016 Regional Final. The next matchup back on that same court promises to be a great one!
