BELMONT COUNTY, OH (WTRF)–The Union Local Lady Jets have made quite the reputation over the years.
Taking a second to reflect on their three seniors’ high school careers, they’ve been nothing short of spectacular.
Believe it or not, over their four years on the court together, these athletes have won 85 out of their 96 games.
Not many people can say they’ve done that.
In 2021 the Jets even made it to the Ohio High School Final Four, making school history.
After their win on Senior Night against John Marshall, Union Local now hold a sturdy 19-0 record.
Torre Kildow says it was an emotional night but that she knows they have more ball to play. 7News sports reporter Ashley Kaiser asked her what she attributes their success to.
We’re a really competitive team and just the drive to win…losing is like the worst feeling in the word to us…Definitely our coaching helps a lot and our dedication to the game, like showing up to practice every day, watching film, and having really great coaches helps.Torre Kildow, Union Local senior
Kildow will be repping green and white next season as a Ohio University Bobcat.
Reagan Vinskovich is Union Local’s all-time leader in points and rebounds.

For Emily Kellaway, she says passion is what drives her to work hard.
