Girls Basketball Preview

With the winter season around the corner, the Lisbon Blue Devils girls basketball team is preparing for what is looking to be a great season. Coach Thompson will be coaching for the Lady Devils, alongside assistant coaches Dave Crismon and Mark Pezzano. When asked what goals he had in mind going into this season, he responded, “Build off of last year’s tournament run.” This tournament run included a dramatic finish against Columbiana last year where Katy Crismon hit a buzzer beater from beyond the arch to tie the game in regulation and lift the Devils to a victory in overtime.

The Lady Blue Devils have returning letterman and 2nd team all-county player Tiffany Ketchum and senior returning letter winner Jenna Dickson in their starting rotation this season. Rebounding will be something the Lady Devils are looking to improve on, along with staying together, and having a positive attitude. The returning lettermen have large responsibilities this year for there is a lot of young talent coming to the court this winter.

The Lady Devil’s season will tip off against Southern at home on November 26th.
