Mark Griffin, sports writer for the Press Newspapers, reports on the current success of the Clay girls basketball team this season, in a feature story that was published in The Press newspapers on January 13, 2014.

Clay’s girls basketball team took an impressive 8-3 record into its scheduled game against Three Rivers Athletic Conference rival Notre Dame Academy, the fourth-ranked Division I team in the state.

Concerning that record, Eagles head coach Corey Slovak on offered this caveat: Clay has yet to face the meat of its TRAC schedule.

“We haven’t hit Notre Dame, Lima Senior or Whitmer yet,” he said. “I’m looking just to be competitive against Notre Dame. They will challenge us with their experience and size. They have two 6-footers and a 5-11. I don’t start a girl taller than 5-8, so our size will be a disadvantage.”

A lack of size has been the Eagles’ Achilles heel for several years now, but this year’s squad has found ways to be competitive. Clay won three of its first four TRAC games, against Findlay, Fremont Ross and St. Ursula Academy, and lost to Central Catholic.
