New Lexington girls basketball wants to learn from Canton losses | #schoolshooting | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

NORTH CANTON — New Lexington coach Jay Chadwell was well in tune with the competition his team was facing at the Hoover Lady Vikings Classic.

His Panthers, coming off a dominant win at Tri-Valley just before Christmas, were no doubt leaving their comfort zone with games against Pennsylvania powers Mount Lebanon and Beaver Falls Blackhawk.

Mount Lebanon, from the Pittsburgh area, was the big school runner-up last season and still unbeaten, while Blackhawk claimed the 4A title.

The Panthers were on the wrong end of a pair of double-digit losses in both games, falling 57-42 to hot-shooting Mount Lebanon on Wednesday and 61-37 to Blackhawk on Thursday.

The losses dropped the Panthers, still unbeaten and alone atop the Muskingum Valley League-Small School Division, to 9-2 with the second half of the season starting next Wednesday against Morgan.

These losses proved there is still progress to be made.

“I think playing teams that we knew that were ranked in other states, state champions, I think that it was a big mental test for us,” New Lex senior Trinity Cook said. “It’s eye-opening to see their athletic abilities and just be able to mentally prepare for that in the future, teams like (Proctorville) Fairland in the future, I think it’s going to prepare us for that. We’re just going to have to turn it up and start preparing now.”
