Bombers’ Seasons Come to an End


Windham – The road to Columbus for Windham’s Lady Bombers and the boy’s Bombers basketball team came to a screeching halt a week ago, when both teams failed to move out of the first round of regional competition. The Lady Bombers were up against four-time state champions Berlin Hiland Hawks at Massillon Perry High School in Massillon. The Hawks proved quickly why they had been four-time state champs, racking up 15 unanswered points and never looking back. Their quickness and powerful defense proved to be too much for the Lady Bombers as they were only able to get off 17 shots the entire game. The Hawks dominated every facet of the game, handing the Lady Bombers a 64-9 defeat and putting an abrupt halt to the state championship dreams. The Lady Bombers finished the regular season with 9-7 prior to entering post-season play. They defeated Fairport, Maplewood, and Warren JFK to claim the District Title. The Lady Bombers then moved on to the Regionals, defeating Our Lady of the Elms before losing to Berlin Hiland last Saturday night. They were awarded the runner-up trophy for Regionals which concluded their season. The Lady Bombers were coached by Gregg Isler and Doug Fall. The boy’s team finished their regular season with an 11-7 record prior to entering the Sectional Tournament played at Warren G. Harding High School in Warren. The Bombers defeated Mineral Ridge, McDonald, and Warren JFK before they moved onto regional play at Canton Field House in Canton. In the first round of the Regional competition, the boys took on the Richmond Heights Spartans and fought a physical battle only to be on the losing end. The boy’s team is coached by Marty Hill and assisted by Bill Poszgai Congratulations to both teams who captured the District IV Titles!
