Port Clinton girls finish season at 18-5

Tiffany Colston, who played her final game during her storied career at Port Clinton High School, drives and scores against Bowling Green.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Unfortunately for the Port Clinton girls basketball team, it happened a little sooner than expected. The Redskins fell, 68-48, to Bowling Green in a Division II Sectional Final last weekend, a difficult end to another fine season that saw Port Clinton finish with an 18-5 record.

Despite trailing just 30-27 at halftime, the ‘Skins saw the Bobcats pull away by outscoring them 25-16 in the third quarter.  Bowling Green (13-11) had four players finish in double figures, led by Tyanna Smith, who scored 23. Kendal Glandorff finished with 12 points and Livvy Dill and Hanna Williford had 10 points apiece. Tiffany Colston led Port Clinton with 18 points, Hannah Weaver chipped in with 14 and Emily Ashley finished with eight.

Placed in a district that included two of the top teams in the state, Clyde and Rogers, the ‘Skins ran into a Bobcat squad that went 11-11 in the Northern Lakes League, a conference that includes the likes of Perrysburg, Sylvania Northview and Anthony Wayne. Ultimately, Bowling Green’s height was too much for Port Clinton to overcome.

It was the final game for a special group of seniors that includes Tiffany Colston, Paige Culver, Kristen Wood and Maddie Burris. (Thorbahn, who missed the last four games of the regular season, will continue her basketball career at Notre Dame College in South Euclid, located just outside of Cleveland.)  

That quintet was instrumental in helping to rebuild a program that had struggled for a couple of years before they arrived at the high school. This group was part of a unit that went 52-17 (.754) over the last three years, finished second in the Sandusky Bay Conference twice and won the program’s first sectional title since 2006.
