Lady Lions want to regain NFL title

Lady Lions' 1-2 punch of Cheatham and Franco will be fun to watch on the basketball court

(Continued)

LOCKPORT —

Fresh off a tremendous soccer season this fall is fleet-footed freshman Gretta Dry, who can play the two guard as well as point guard, sophomore Alyssa Wagner, who has looked strong in scrimmages, and versatile sophomore Hailey Bechtold, who can play inside and out, Shaw said.
Rounding out the LHS 11-player roster are juniors J’Vonna Clarke, Roserita DiMillo and Kennedy Smith; and sophomore Johanna Jenkins.
“Our goal is the same every year, to win an NFL championship and a sectional championship,” Shaw said. Grand Island has won the league title in each of the last two years, but Lockport won six in a row before that.
“Grand Island still has (Cassie) Oursler and Niagara Falls should do well. (Coach) Mike Esposito has done a tremendous job of getting that program turned around. Those two will be tough and Niagara-Wheatfield with their guards (Melissa) Smith and (Rachel) Pollock will be strong as well.”
Assisting Shaw again this season are Pete Dickinson and junior varsity head coach Jill DiTullio. The LHS trainer is Rosie Heinemann.
