Port Clinton Redskins

Head Coach: Von Graffin
This Season: 10-13 Overall
Last Season: 9-14 Overall
Graduating Seniors: 7
Returning Lettermen: 4
Pre-Season Media Day Prediction: 3rd of 7 teams (8-4)
2015-2016 Season Finish: 4th of 7 teams (7-5)

Season Review:  For the Port Clinton Redskins, it was a season of “what might have been.” Only six players played in all twenty-three games as injuries and other factors kept PC from being at full strength for most of the season. Despite the lack of continuity in the line-up, the Redskins pulled off an upset of conference leading Sandusky Perkins at Sandusky to put them back in the conference title hunt.  Unfortunately, a poor shooting night at home against Huron ended any chances for a title. They did, however, finish with a winning mark in the SBC which was quite an accomplishment considering all the obstacles they faced this season. It certainly would have been an interesting season had they been able to stay healthy as a January stretch saw PC go 6-2 and showed a flash of the potential within this team.

Port Clinton Lady Redskins

Head Coach: Toby Bickel
This Season: 11-13 Overall
Last Season: 20-4 Overall
Graduating Seniors: 6
Returning Lettermen: 5
Pre-Season Media Day Prediction: 3rd of 7 teams (8-4)
2015-2016 Season Finish: 5th of 7 teams (5-7)

Season Review: The Port Clinton Lady Redskins were looking forward to the 2015-16 season as soon as the 14-15 season ended as they would enter the year as defending Sandusky Bay Conference champions for the first time. But that anticipation soon changed to despair as a pair of knee injuries downed two senior starters before the season even started.  What started as a season of high hopes led by six seniors turned into one of opportunity and learning for the younger members of the squad forced into service by circumstance. Despite the setback, the Lady Redskins improved as the season wore on and were playing their best basketball as the season ended. Their best effort of the season came up just short of an upset of SBC champion Oak Harbor in the sectional tournament.

Danbury Lakers

Head Coach:  Nate Keller
This Season: 11-12 Overall
Last Season: 3-20 Overall
Graduating Seniors: 5
Returning Lettermen: 3
Pre-Season Prediction: 7th of 9 teams (4-12)
2015-2016 Season Finish: 6th of 9 teams (7-9)

Season Review:  Despite being one of the smallest schools in the TAAC (8th of 9), the Lakers were looking to make strides this season and move up the ladder in the TAAC standings. Coming off a 3-20 season in which the Lakers finished 8th in the conference, the 2015-16 season was a success as the Lakers finished in the middle of the pack and were able to compete much better against the conference’s top contenders this season.  Danbury exceeded pre-season expectations and if not for early games against Stritch and Emmanual Christian, a 2 point and 3 point losses, it would have been an even bigger success. The two December losses were missed opportunities that would have left the Lakers with an overall winning record, a TAAC record of 9-7 and a fourth place TAAC finish.
