One mile marker to go on Perfection Road.

Improving to 19-0 on the season, the Unioto Lady Shermans
cruised to a 56-38 home floor win over the Piketon Lady
Redstreaks on Thursday, capping an unbeaten home season for
the Tanks, the No. 5-ranked team in the latest Ohio Associated
Press girls basketball poll.

The Lady Tanks stand at the brink of greatness.

With a regular-season ending win at Huntington on Saturday
afternoon, Unioto could cap its first undefeated season in 15
years, going 20-0 for only the third time in school history.
Additionally, a win over the Lady Huntsmen Saturday would
earn the Lady Tanks their record-setting fourth Gold
Basketball, emblematic of an undefeated (14-0) double spin
through the Scioto Valley Conference.

No girls team in the 32-year history of the SVC has earned four
Gold Basketballs.

Fittingly, Huntington, winners of the last Gold Basketball
awarded by the conference three seasons ago, will try to spoil
Unioto's masterpiece. It was the Lady Huntsmen who last ran
the SVC table at 14-0 in the 2005-2006 campaign.

In front of a large Senior Night crowd at Unioto Thursday night,
senior point guard Shiann Ray – bound for Ashland College
on a hoops scholarship – shined with 15 points for the
winning Tanks. She got help from sophomore pivot Mackenzie
Arledge with 10.

Senior Taylor Corcoran and junior Liza Elliott added eight
apiece for the Lady Shermans.

For Piketon (10-9. 5-9 SVC), senior Keia Cade led with 10
points. Senior Heather Burns added eight markers while
freshman Alex Southworth scored seven.
The Lady Mustangs were able to hang
around for most of the night, but big
three-point baskets at the end of both
the second and third quarters lifted
Adena to a 53-37 win.

Ashley Jordan scored a game-high 20
points and Brytan Givens added 12
points for the winners.

In the loss, Makenzie Wippel scored
10 points and Gracie Hurley chipped in
with nine points.
Senior night in Bainbridge
equals a win for the Lady Cats
Sophomores Abbie Walls and Dacia
Posey shared game-high honors with
14 points, and seniors Tristan Rumfield
and Erica Barker - both playing at
home for the final time - posted solid
nights to lead PV to a 50-37 win over
Southeastern.

Rumfield scored nine points, grabbed
17 rebounds, and dished out four
assists, while Barker scored a dozen
and handed out six assists.

For Southeastern, both Merrilee and
Catherine Dresbach scored 10 points,
but it was sophomore Allison
Augustine scoring a team-high 13
points to lead the Lady Panthers.
ZT wins at Huntington
Pioneers and Warriors share
second place at 11-3
Zane Trace finished off its SVC season
with a 48-38 win over Huntington
Thursday night. The win puts ZT at
11-3 tied with the Warriors in second
place (both teams lost to Unioto twice
and split head-to-head).
