AHS girls basketball edged by Panthers to tip off season 

By Cort Reynolds

The feisty Ada High School girls basketball team fashioned a big second-half comeback, but ultimately lost to visiting McComb 49-40 in a spirited season opener Friday night.

The Bulldogs rallied from a 14-point deficit to within three in the second half, but a 9-0 McComb spurt midway through the fourth period spelled the difference in the outcome. 

The Ada offense got untracked in the final 13 minutes, yet they were unable to overcome a slow start and 19 turnovers. However, the Bulldog girls kept battling and made a close game of it late before falling just short.

Talented backcourt to lead Ada girls under new coach

The Ada High School girls basketball team returns one of the better backcourts in the area to lead a potential resurgence under new varsity head coach Zack Ricker.

The AHS girls basketball team has not had a winning season since 2015-16, when they went 15-8 overall and 5-3 in the league. This season's core is probably the most talented since that edition, although depth is thin.

A Delphos Jefferson graduate, Ricker served as the freshman boys coach at Ada last season.
