Corunna Ends Ovid-Elsie Season in District Semi-Finals

The 2020-21 girls basketball season came to a close as Corunna defeated Ovid-Elsie, 53-33, in the District Semi-Finals at Owosso Wednesday night.  Corunna (12-3) will advance to play Lake Fenton (12-1) in the championship Friday night.  Ovid-Elsie ends their season 12-5.

"This is a tough way to end our season," said Head Coach Ryan Cunningham.  "But if we put it into perspective, all-in-all we had a great run.  We recorded 12 wins and really didn't have a bad loss - the teams that beat us were just better and that includes Corunna tonight."

Those five teams have a combined record of 57-17 and four of them (Byron, Dansville, Portland and Corunna) are all playing for District Championships.

Corunna got out to a fast start and led 10-7 after the first quarter and followed it up with an 11-5 second quarter run.

"They have two standout players that were tough matchups for us," noted Cunningham.  "We played them hard and we played hard all night but I have to give credit where credit is due and as I said, they were just better."

Corunna standouts Ellie Toney and Sydner Gillett scored a combined 43 points, 24 and 19 respectively to propel the Cavaliers.

Junior Caitlyn Walter finished with a team high 10 points while freshman Ava Bates added 8 points and 8 rebounds.  Hailee Campbell added 5 points and 6 rebounds while Evalyn Cole scored 4 points, and Kaylee Hall, Tristin Ziola and Kiah Longoria each added 2 points.  Madison Cunningham added 3 steals while Longoria led in assists with 4.

"I'm disappointed for our seniors," said Cunningham.  "They have done so much for our team and I hate to see them go out with a loss.  Hopefully they, and everyone associated with this program - players and families, will look back at this season and realize what we accomplished.  We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to be proud of.  And we have a lot to look forward to in the future."
