INDIAN HILL – After three straight winning seasons the Indian Hill High School girls basketball team is after that elusive Cincinnati Hills League championship.
Coach Chris Arington’s Lady Braves were third last season, but would like win their first league title since 2012.
From 2009-2012, the Lady Braves won four straight CHL crowns.
Last year’s squad was 14-11 (8-6 CHL) with tournament wins against Blanchester and Mount Healthy, before bowing to McNicholas in early March. Three starters return in Samantha Arington, Marshana Baskin and Ellie Schaub.
Sam Arington and Baskin are seniors and Schaub is a junior. Arington averaged 15.7 points per game for third in the league. Schaub was fourth in the league in steals with 2.8 and averaged 15 points per game.

INDIAN HILL — The upside of Indian Hill High School’s Division IV football playoff loss to Clinton-Massie was that none of coach Tim Burch’s basketball players were hurt.
Burch was at the football games this season making sure the various multi-purpose athletes that also grace the hardwood remained safe. Like Tony Arcuri’s football team, they have the talent to win the Cincinnati Hills League, something they haven’t done since 2010.

The Lady Braves basketball team opened up their season with a strong win against Norwood by a score of 50-43. The scoring went back and forth for the majority of the game, but the Lady Braves held on for the win. They are beginning to show the depth of their multiple weapons from driving to the basket to collecting key rebounds.
Throughout the game, the scoring was extremely well balanced. Sam Arington (senior) had 17 points, Ellie Schaub (junior) with 12, Marshana Baskin (senior) contributed 11, and last but not least, freshman starter, Karisa Grandison, in her first varsity game gave the Braves 10 points. 27 of the 50 points came from outstanding perimeter shooting, knocking down 9 threes.
