Harvest Prep Warriors were expected to be State Champions and they fulfilled all expectations

compiled from staff and wire reporters

The buzz around Columbus in the late fall was, ‘watch out’ for the Harvest Prep Warriors; they’re going to be the talk of the town and state. They were crowned state champions of the smaller high school division before the season had begun.

When the Southwestern City school levy (Grove City) area was rumored to be voted down again, thus the elimination of sports and other activities, three of the best players in the area decided to go to another high school so they could play basketball this season.

The Warriors became the team to beat when Aryealle Beavers, Chelsea McKnight and Shicole Watts fell right into their school. David Dennis, in his second year, could feel the pressure and hear the expectations.

The Warriors reached the pinnacle on Saturday, coming from behind in dramatic fashion to beat Berlin Hiland, 45-41 in the Division IV Championship game in Value City Arena, before 4,529.

Harvest Prep, 27-1, defeated the team who has consistently been a constant winner/champion in small high school basketball in Ohio with 4 championships since 2000 and 11, count them, 11 state tournament appearances.

When the Warriors neede a key play, they got it. They pressured the Hawks all over the floor including the 3-point line. Berlin Hiland was reluctant to drive inside against the taller more physical Warriors. Thus the 17 turnovers.

The word around town and the state is that Harvest Prep will be reckoned with for seasons to come.
