Austintown Fitch Falcons High School Girls’ Basketball Preview 2021-22

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – At the end of March, Fitch hired Jeff Wilson as the next head coach of women’s basketball to replace Dan Schurrenberger who held the position for 5 seasons. Wilson has been an assistant in the Fitch basketball program in the past and most recently he was the head coach of the boys at Crestview until 2019.

“Our expectation is to improve in all aspects of the game both offensively and defensively,” said coach Wilson. “We need to reduce turnovers and shoot basketball much more efficiently. We had a great summer going to the Eastern Ohio Sports Complex (in Sherrodsville) and participating in the West Branch Summer League. We have matured a lot as a team. We’ve been in the weight room three days a week since April. Several girls got thousands of game speed shots throughout the summer. We want to improve each day and reach our full potential both individually and as a program. Competing in our league is a must to move the program forward in the right direction. We have a mix of youth and experience with a lot of hungry players who are ready to show what they can do.

With only one senior on the team, Coach Wilson is looking for his subclasses to take on more of a leadership role. “We have an interesting mix of juniors, sophomores and freshmen who have shown signs of being leaders.”

Top scorer Zayda Creque, a junior, returns after averaging 13.5 points per game and shooting nearly 31% from three points.

Sophomore Ayla Ray is also back after averaging 2.8 points and 2.3 assists as a debutant.

Fitch begins playing November 24 at Lakeside.
