Go Buckeyes

Alot of playing time for many younger players should pay off as they get some experience.

Young Tallmadge girls basketball team looks to keep it simple
The Tallmadge girls basketball team is very young this season, so first-year head coach Joe Leonard is going to keep things simple.

“We’re going to run some zone and we’re going to play some man-to-man,” he said. “I think we’re going to be a half-court team. We’ve spent a lot of time on ball handling, shooting and being able to break a press, which always gives younger players fits.”

The Blue Devils finished 15-10 overall and 6-6 in the Suburban League American Conference last season. They will try to withstand the losses to graduation of Lizzie Bickar, Jill Catalano and Rae’lya Sibley.
