Ross rams its way to top of girls race


Ross used a strong fourth quarter to beat Little Miami 49-44 on the road Saturday night. The win gave the Rams at least a share of the SWOC title. Lauren Haynes led Ross with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Katie Brehm had 14 points and Karlie Becker added 10 off the bench for Ross. 

Little Miami's Kaitlyn Simpkins led all scorers with 15 points. 

Ross now sits at 9-2 in the conference, with Little Miami at 9-3 and Talawanda at 8-3. 

Talawanda hosts Ross on Saturday, Feb. 6. If the Braves win, it will create a three-way tie for the league title. A Ross win would give the Rams the outright title.
