Roses to the United Local girls basketball team. The Golden Eagles won a district title before falling to unbeaten Smithville in the regional. United?Local finished 21-4 under head coach Sam Mathias. The Golden Eagles weren't expected to be that good heading into the season. They had a first-year head coach and didn't boast a ton of varsity experience. But their season-long efforts - including a district title win over favored and perennial area power Youngstown Ursuline - proved what can be accomplished by believing in yourselves and committing to a goal. Well done, girls.
