MADISON TWP. — The Madison High girls basketball team is looking to improve from its 7-15 record from last season.
Mohawks coach Brian McGuire, who was at the helm from 2001 to 2004 before taking the reigns again in 2015, said his squad hopes to make a statement in the Southwestern Buckeye League.
QUOTABLE: “I expect us to be much more improved from last year,” McGuire said. “Having Saunders back immediately made us better. We gained valuable experience last year even though we struggled. I expect us to be in the top 3 in the league this year, and hopefully challenging for a league title.”
NOTABLE: Kenzi Saunders, who missed last season because of ACL surgery, returns having been a starter as a freshman and sophomore. … Grace Baker averaged 8.7 points a game in 2018-2019. … Carley McMonigle grabbed 8.5 rebounds a game last season.
2018-2019 POSTSEASON: Lost to Valley View in the first round.
