The girls basketball team cruised past the West Geauga Wolverines 60-43 on Saturday, Jan. 6 at West Geauga.

While it’s been a season of ups and downs, the lady bison took care of business on the road.

Led by senior Taylor Royster, the team currently sits at 5-9 overall with a 3-5 record in conference play. However, by the way they played at West Geauga, they certainly have potential to win the conference this season.

Royster, who scored 32 points in Saturday’s game, has been the leader of the team over her career at Beachwood due to her leadership and unmatched talent on the court.

During the first quarter, Royster scored her 1,638th point, breaking Beachwood’s long-standing record for career points, surpassing Selena Budge, who set the record in 2004.

Beachwood Athletic Director Ryan Peters is impressed.

“It’s a huge accomplishment,”Peters said. “I think it’s going to be hard to break Taylor’s record.”

The next game is at home against Wickliffe on Saturday, Jan. 20. If Beachwood can defeat this 3-8 team,  it will be another chance to steal a conference win.

Beachwood is currently positioned dead center in the conference standings, and winning conference games will be the key to winning the conference championship.

Peters has confidence in the team’s ability.

“Other teams are struggling to score; the defense has definitely gotten stronger,” he said.

The lady bison have been successful in conference play over the last few years. They look to continue that trend with a strong roster of seniors this year.

They also have a nice young core to carry the torch for upcoming seasons, as they continue to aim for the playoffs.
