AVON – Starting with tonight’s games the West Shore Conference seventh grade boys ‘ basketball tournament was down to four teams with Avon playing Bay in one semifinal game and North Ridgeville playing Midview in the other one.

 The two favored teams are North Ridgeville and Avon and those were the two that came out the winners tonight to set up tomorrow night's title game. 

The Rangers have one loss in league play while the Eagles have lost only twice, both times to their back door neighbors to the south. Rocky River was the only team to beat the 13-1 Rangers this season.


More important than the wins to the Rangers has been their success in the classroom. Ten of the 13 student/athletes were on the honor roll this past quarter with seven of those 10 attaining high honors status.


Most of them play either AAU or Lake Erie League ball as well.


“This experience has taught them many fundamentals and skills,” said Ridgeville coach Jason Brown.”Everyone has contributed significant minutes this year.  They really have a good teamwork mentality.”


In first-round action, Midview bettered River, Ridgeville eliminated Vermilion, Bay dropped Firelands and Avon bounced Fairview.


Ridgeville was a 44-30 winner over Midview tonight to earn the right to play Avon for the championship. The Eagles got by Bay tonight to get into the finals,

North Ridgeville 7th graders are: Top Row: Tyler Arnold, Jonah Bowden, Steven Snyder, Ben Rankin, Nathan Colbert, Shayne Erny, David Dowell
bottom: Oscar Frazier, Andrew Dowell, Chad Ferrara, Logan Armaro, Brendan Myers, Austin Leininger
