Roy-Hart will tune-up for the upcoming Niagara-Orleans League campaign by hosting a season opening tournament on December 4 and 5.

Roy-Hart will face Lyndonville in the opening round of the tournament. The Lady Rams will then begin N-O competition at CSAT on December 15.

Looking to rebound from last year’s 2-12 N-O, 3-16 overall record, Roy-Hart returns a large nucleus of veteran players including seniors Emma Lindke, Rachael Rausch, Sarah Duewiger and Sarah Bascom along with juniors Ava Bligh, Rielly Albee and Alyssa Hess.

The Lady Rams lineup also includes sophomores Skyler Christopher, Maddy Glena, Ellie Todd and freshman Maddie Fry.

“We’re going to try to do a better job of rebounding and we want to push the ball up court,” said Coach Don Baker. “We’re at our best when we can score in transition.”
