Ben Logan Raiders

Division 3: Central Buckeye Conference; Coach Donnie Sosby

Coach Donnie Sosby talks about some keys to the upcoming season at Ben Logan:

– How do you think the move to Division 3 will affect the success of your team: I don’t think it will affect our team one way or another. Our schedule didn’t change because of the move and the DIII sectional will be just as tough to get out of as our DII sectional we were in.

– Tell me about the expectations you have for your team coming into this year: Well our expectations never really change year to year. Our number goal is always to win a league championship and compete for a sectional championship.

– You have a returning all-Ohio player and two-time league MVP Nikki Current. What does her senior leadership mean to your team this year: It means a great deal to us as she makes people around her better. We have a lot of inexperience this year and her leadership will be vital.

– Ben Logan has won 3 consecutive league titles in the Mad River Division of the CBC. What will it take to stretch that streak to four: First of all we are going to have to stay healthy and we will need a lot of younger players to step up and play key roles for us this year.

– Key players to watch:

Nikki Current, 5-7 Sr.

Stevie Plikerd, 5-6 Sr.

Savannah Pavoni, 5-7 Soph.

 – Other key players:

Olivia Roose, 6-0 Jr.

Pam Kelly, 5-7 Jr.

Ben Logan will be led by (l to r) sophomore Savannah Pavoni, 2-time all-Ohio senior Nikki Current, and senior Stevie Plikerd
