OHSAA GBB Tourney: Columbia advances in Districts with win over Oberlin

By Don DiFrancesco

The Columbia Lady Raiders advanced in the OHSAA Division 3 North Ridgeville district tournament with a 47-30 win vs. Oberlin on Wednesday evening. Columbia will play Patriot Athletic Conference rival Lutheran West in the sectional final on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.

Columbia (12-11) used aggressive defense plus patient offense to subdue the Lady Phoenix. Junior guards Danielle Gerda and Serena Goode formed a nice “G & G” combination for Columbia with each player sinking six baskets. The Raiders enjoyed a solid 50-30 edge in rebounding on the night.

Oberlin junior Karissa Rankin scored all 11 of her team’s fourth-quarter points and was the game’s leading scorer with 16. The Phoenix ended their season at 4-19.
