ICHS BASKETBALL

Preseason Girls Basketball

Wintersville- At Indian Creek High School, the girls basketball season is about to be on its way.  This Friday at Indian Creek High School, the girls will be playing St. Johns, of Bellaire.  This will be the opening game of the 2015-2016 season.  Indian Creek will have only two seniors returning this year, and they are Bethany Davis and Alaina Taylor.

The girls will have a younger roster this year with many freshmen making the transition from junior high to the varsity level.  This year the team will be hurting with the loss of Bre Berryman.  This team is very young, but dedicated and has two great senior leaders. Hopefully, they will lead The Redskins to a great season.
