Shaver's 21 points lead the way to a victory over Cuyahoga Falls Jan. 22.
Bob Podges wasn't satisfied with a seven-point halftime lead and let his Stow-Munroe Falls High School girls basketball team know it. Alexandria Shaver paid particular attention to Podges' plea to put more effort into the offense. The junior guard scored 21 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs to a 58-45 win at home over rival Cuyahoga Falls on Saturday. "Shaver stepped up in the second half and responded," Podges said. "I challenged her at halftime, told her to get aggressive offensively, shoot the ball, and play like she knows how to play." Shaver scored four points in five seconds early in a 23-point fourth quarter by the Lady Bulldogs (8-3). She drove down the lane for a layup, then picked off Cuyahoga Falls' inbounds pass and turned that …

Four players score in double figures; record now 7-1.
The Stow-Munroe Falls High School Bulldogs came out running and never looked back as they defeated the visiting Barberton Magics, 64-48 Tuesday night at home. Stow's (7-1) up-tempo running style gave them a 15 to 8 lead after the first quarter, and 12-point lead at halftime (32-20). Though Barberton (6-3) equaled Stow's point production in the third quarter, they didn't match up well with the Bulldogs and faded in the fourth quarter, losing by 16. Stow's aggressive defense, backcourt quickness, accurate long-range shooting, and favorable matchups in the middle gave head coach Dave Close a distinct advantage. “We didn’t have to body up to people [tonight],” said Close. “We blocked a lot of shots with length. We didn’t have to get physical…

Twinsburg buzzer-beater misses, Stow wins by three.
As the last few seconds ticked off the clock, Twinsburg senior Michael Timm hung his head as his shot, that would have sent the game into overtime, fell short. The Stow-Munroe Falls Bulldogs were able to hang on for the 49-46 win Friday night at Twinsburg High School. The Tigers came out firing in the first quarter and were helped out by a few Bulldog mistakes as Twinsburg was on top 13-8.

Bulldogs earn two wins by Dylan Hartwig and Connor McMahon.
The night wasn’t all lost for the Stow-Munroe Falls Bulldogs wrestlers in a 56-20 loss at Cuyahoga Falls Thursday night, according to Stow coach Randy Jenkins. With only two wrestlers claiming victories — sophomore Dylan Hartwig at 112 pounds and junior Connor McMahon earning a pin at — you would have expected Jenkins to be somewhat disappointed. He wasn’t. Jenkins said he understood that some nights you are overmatched. This was one of those nights, although it didn’t start out that way for the Bulldogs. Stow won the 103-pound weight class due to a forfeit (injury) for a 6-0 lead. In the following match, Hartwig registered his pin for an 11-0 lead. "This was fun,’’ Jenkins said about the lively crowd in attendance. It was Alumni Night for…
