Medina used some shuffled lineups due to illness on Saturday and came away with a 48-29 victory at Shaker Heights. The Bees up their record to 15-5 overall and 11-2 in the GCC. The win also ensures they will at least share the GCC title with Solon, marking the first conference championship for Medina Girls Basketball since 2012-13.
Medina has two games remaining in the regular season, including a trip to Mentor on Monday, Feb. 10. A victory would give the Bees the outright GCC title.
Against Shaker Heights, Lindsey Linard led the way with 16 points, 11 rebounds, 6 blocked shots. Shannon Wojciak ran the team as point guard and tallied 7 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. Elizabeth Stuart posted 12 points, 4 rebounds while Alyssa Johnson (4pts) & Gillian Wagner (4 rbs) made an impact. Nine JV & FR players played and contributed to the victory. Freshman Kayla Joyner posted 2 pts and 4 rebounds in her first Varsity appearance. Fellow 9th graders Kaitlyn Letner, Ella Silvis, Courtney Maruna, Abby Acierto plus sophomore Grace Koehler also were called upon to play their inaugural Varsity minutes over this past week.
