Girls basketball: Fremont Ross lets Stanfield score on FHS Senior Night

Taylor Stanfield’s basket may not have seemed like much in the final box score of Findlay’s 43-33 loss to Fremont Ross on Thursday.
But in the grander scheme of high school sports and the sportsmanship it embodies, it loomed rather large.
Findlay and Fremont Ross, usually bitter rivals when it comes to athletics, came to a friendly agreement on Senior Night at the FHS Gymnasium. Findlay let Fremont control the opening tip and score. Fremont them allowed Findlay to inbound the ball to Stanfield, who took it the length of the court for a basket.
It would the only basket of the game, and the season, for Stanfield, a 6-foot center whose senior year was lost when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament late last fall.
Elayna Ackerman scored 14 points and Val Sampson added 11 for Fremont Ross in the final Three Rivers Athletic Conference game of the season for both schools. The Little Giants (11-10, 5-9 TRAC) led just 18-17 at the half but started opening things up with a 14-8 edge in the third quarter.
Jacey Hardesty, one of eight seniors on Findlay’s roster, drained four 3-pointers and had a team-high 14 points for the Trojans (2-19, 2-12 TRAC).
Zoe Swisher and Sarah Thomas added five points each for Findlay. The Trojans finish regular season play Saturday at Defiance (5-15), then will face Lima Senior (18-3) on Tuesday in the Division I sectional opener at Fostoria.
