High School Teams Compete for County Basketball Title
East Liverpool took home the traveling plaque by winning the sixth annual Kent State Columbiana County Classic with a 66-50 score over Salem High School on the Quakers home court. With the win, the Potters tied the series at 3-3.
Always a favorite, Flash cheered and danced with fans of all ages.
At halftime, four students each received a $500 Opportunity Scholarship to be used at the Salem or East Liverpool Campus. Dean David Dees presented the scholarships to seniors Casey Miller and Corey Riesen of Salem High School and to Jamar Allen and Paxton Grimes of East Liverpool High School.
The Kent State County Classic represents the strong foundation of learning in East Liverpool and Salem, as each community is home to one of the university’s two Columbiana County campuses.
