TCCS girls fall to North Clarion

TIONESTA — The Tidioute girls dropped a road match-up with North Clarion on Monday, 67-24.

Hanna Divido shot 3-of-3 from the three-point line and finished with 11 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs. Nakiesha Krouse added eight points and Nettie Durstine finished with six rebounds.

“The girls played extremely hard throughout the entire game,” said TCCS coach Christy Valentine. “I’m proud of them for giving it their all. We set goals coming into the game knowing we would be outnumbered and outsized and achieved them.”

North Clarion’s Tori Obenrader led all scorers with 17 points while teammate Ally Carill added 11.

In JV action, Nakiesha Krouse scored 13 points for Tidioute in a 39-16 loss.

“Again, most girls played two games tonight and fatigue set in,” Valentine said. “I’m very proud of the girls and all of the progress they have made to this point in the season. I’m very excited for the future of TCCS Lady Bulldog basketball.”

Tidioute plays its final games of the season this Friday with a triple-header. The junior high boys team plays at 4:30 p.m. with varsity girls and varsity boys to follow against Calvary Baptist.

Along with being the Bulldogs’ senior night, Friday is also Brain Aneurysm Awareness night at TCCS. Attendees are welcome to wear burgundy to help raise awareness, and all money raised from the event will be donated to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
