Though it may not seem like the time, the sound of the basketball bouncing on the hardwood echoed from the gymnasium at North Adams High School as the Lady Devils hosted an opening night of Summer League Basketball. Joining in the Lady Devils in Seaman on Monday evening were the defending Southeast District champion Lynchburg Clay Lady Mustangs and the Lady Wildcats of Blanchester.
The opening clash of the evening pitted the two SHAC rivals against each other, with the Lady Mustangs coming out on top of North Adams 48-36. In this summer league, two 20-minute halves are played with a running clock that stops only on dead balls in the last minute of each half. Shooting fouls are two free throws throughout the game, and fouls in the last minute of each half are a one and one bonus situation.

After topping North Adams, the Lady Mustangs were right back in action and didn’t miss a beat, rolling past Blanchester 70-20 to complete their evening of work. The final contest of the night pitted the lady Devils with Blanchester and the home team came out on top after a slow start, 43-20.
“We got off to a rough start in our first game, but when you are playing one of the best teams around, that can happen,” said North Adams head coach Rob Davis, who was even forced to try his hand at officiating as the scheduled referees were no-shows. “We settled down and played better the second half with Lynchburg and the last game we did some things better. I was pleased overall with our effort.”

“It’s hard to really execute well without a lot of practice. It looks like we will have 14 varsity players and it was good to see Brooklyn Young back out there after three knee surgeries and even with a broken foot, Allison Harper here to support her teammates.”
Besides North Adams, games were played on Monday night at Fairfield and at Western Brown. The league continues on June 13 when the Lady Devils will be in Hillsboro, with match ups scheduled with the host squad and Western Brown. On Wednesday, June 22, North Adams will be at Eastern Brown where they will face Fairfield and then the host Lady Warriors.
The final night of action will be on June 27 and on that night the North Adams girls will be at Whiteoak High School, battling the host Lady Cats and then the East Clinton Lady Astros.
