Summer basketball action continues all over southeast Ohio and in the past couple of weeks, the Lady Devils of North Adams’ junior high girls programs have hosted two separate shootout events in Seaman, seventh grade girls on June 2 and then eighth grade girls on June 8.

Besides the host lady Devils, the June 2 seventh grade girls shootout welcomed four other teams to town, Eastern Brown, Georgetown, West Union, and Northwest. Each team was able to play three games except for the home team, coached by Taylor Jodrey, who played four times and the Lady Devils split down the middle at 2-2 on the day.

The shootout featured two 14-minute halves and the final scores for the day are as follows: Eastern Brown 20 North Adams 14, Eastern Brown 35 Georgetown 6, West Union 17 Northwest 3,

Six days later, Coach Shannon Staggs and his eighth grade Lady Devils welcomed teams from Northwest, Georgetown, and Ripley for an evening shootout event, where the home team rolled to three victories.
The final scores from the June 8 eighth grade shootout were: North Adams 22 Northwest 16, Georgetown 34 Northwest 26, Georgetown 38 Ripley 6, Northwest 33 Ripley 5, North Adams 46 Georgetown 16, and North Adams 40 Ripley 11.

“I was pretty happy with the way we played,” said Coach Staggs. “Summer basketball is all about getting better and working on things to help these kids not only get better in junior high, but getting them ready for high school. We still have a lot of work to do before this season and I know our kids are looking forward to the challenge.”

Fans looking to see the North Adams varsity teams in action can do so this Friday, June 17 as the varsity girls will be playing at Eastern Brown and the Green Devils’ varsity boys will be at Hillsboro.
