Girls Varsity Basketball · Girls Basketball: Clippers Close Regular Season with Win at Brooklyn

BROOKLYN — The Clearview Clippers closed the regular season with a 53-23 win over Brooklyn in Patriot Athletic Conference Stripes Division action on Wednesday night.

It was a night of farewells, as Brooklyn said farewell to their seniors on Senior Night.  Tonight also marked the final girls basketball game the Clippers will play in the Patriot Athletic Conference before moving to the Lorain County League next season, while Brooklyn moves to the Chagrin Valley Conference.

The night began with a touching moment – Brooklyn senior Yanalee Ramos made her first start since tearing her ACL in a game against Clearview last season, and scored the first basket of the game.  Congratulations to Yanalee on a great career.

Clearview controlled the game, leading 15-7 after a quarter and outscoring Brooklyn 19-2 and 15-2 in the second and third quarters, respectively.  For the Clippers, Brooke Rebman led with 18 points, with Olivia Romes adding 9 and Ariana Vazquez adding 7, while senior Samantha Jancsura scored 6 points in her final regular season game.

The win tonight moves the Clippers to 11-10 overall as the regular season concludes.

The Lady Clippers will open tournament play on Saturday where, as the #10 seed, they will travel to #7 seed East Tech for a sectional semifinal matchup.  Tip is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at East Tech.

The JV Clippers also closed their season with a win, defeating Brooklyn 45-10.
