The Clinton-Massie girls had a great season this year. This week was the year-end banquet and this video was shown. It’s a great compilation of an exciting season. Go Falcons!
Now that the regular season has concluded, the post-season honors are being handed out. Below are a couple of articles from the Wilmington News-Journal. Sydney was also named 1st Team SCOL, but that hasn’t appeared in the paper yet.
Brackemyre second team All-Southwest District
Clinton-Massie sophomore Sydney Brackemyre was named Thursday to the second team Southwest District Division II girls basketball team by The Associated Press.
Brackemyre averaged 18 points, 9 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 assists per game for the 19-4 Lady Falcons.
Brackemyre named to Dist. 15 all-underclass team
Clinton-Massie’s Sydney Brackemyre was named to the District 15 girls basketball all-stars underclass squad.
Brackemyre, who averaged nearly 18 points per game this season for the Lady Falcons, was the fourth overall vote-getter among freshmen, sophomores and juniors.
Other underclassmen on the team were Elizabeth Haley of Oakwood, Erin Dorn of Bellbrook, Susan Wollenhaupt of Carroll, Breanna Ball of Belmont, Emma Bockrath of Alter, Autumn Worley of Eaton, Janae Curtiss of Thurgood Marshall, Hannah Collins of Valley View and Ciara Poppa of Carroll.
Members of the senior District 15 all-star team are Kelley Austria of Carroll, Raytea Long of Chaminade-Julienne, Allison Bockrath of Alter, Leisha Crawford of Bellbrook, Kendra Moss of Thurgood Marshall, Emily Michael of Chaminade-Julienne, Sharae Grandberry of Meadowdale, Claire Davis of Oakwood, Simmone Gage of Chaminade-Julienne and Shelby Sigman of Bellbrook.
After winning their final game of the regular season today against Hillsboro, the Clinton-Massie Lady Falcons are winners of the SCOL. The girls had a good regular season, dropping two games in a row on back to back road trips, but won decidedly today to claim the championship.
The playoffs start next week with a game Tuesday night in Springboro. For the weekend, they will enjoy the league title.
Cutting Down the Net
The Clinton-Massie Lady Falcons continue to win in the SCOL. On Saturday (01/28) they had a good game against London and remain undefeated in league play. The Wilmington News-Journal ran a nice article that featured some good quotes about Sunday . . . and cool picture, too.
Here’s what the paper ran. Do appreciate how the News-Journal tries to highlight our area athletes.
Dominating play from the opening tip, the Clinton-Massie Lady Falcons defeated London, 53-36, Saturday in a South Central Ohio League game at the CMHS gym.
With the win, the 14th-ranked Lady Falcons remain unbeaten in SCOL play at 8-0 while improving to 15-1 overall.
Clinton-Massie scored 17 of the first 20 points in the game and led 29-11 at halftime.
Sydney Brackemyre was a scoring machine for the Lady Falcons, accounting for 19 of Massie’s first 22 points — including 15 of CM’s 18 points in the second quarter. She easily won the praise of Red Raiders’ coach Ben Ackley.
“She is such a dominant player and is virtually unstoppable,” said Ackley. “Not only does she score from all over the floor, but she hits the boards really well. By halftime I think she had seven offensive rebounds. To me, she’s a Division I prospect.
Reportedly, representatives from Michigan State were in attendance to witness Brackemyre’s play Saturday.
“When we execute like we did in the first half and play defense like that, we’re hard to beat,” said Clinton-Massie head coach Allen Wilkinson, who recently picked up his 200th career win. His career win total now stands at 205.
While Brackemyre saw limited playing time in the second half, several other players picked up the scoring pace for Massie. The Lady Falcons led 45-19 after three quarters before being outscored 17-8 in the final frame.
“Yes, we played much better overall in the second half,” said Ackley. “Massie just presents match-up problems for us because of their size. ‘Wilk’ does a great job with his kids and they’re showing great improvement.”
The Lady Falcons stayed unbeaten in the SCOL with a good win today against Miami Trace. It was a pretty intense game against an opponent that has had the upper hand the last few seasons. Massie had several players contribute and then hit some crucial free throws to put the game away at the end.
It will be a tough game when we go to Trace’s gym later in the season, but for now we’ll take the win.
The Massie girls have started good out of the gate, winning their first two games by double digits. The goal is to “go for the gold” and win the league, which I guess all teams shoot for that at the start of the season. Nevertheless, we are off to a good start.
The girls played well together, especially in the half. Syd had a good game with 24 points and some nice assists, along with a dozen rebounds.

Here’s what was posted on Ohio Locker Room today about Clinton Massie girls basketball:
The South Central Ohio League winter sports awards banquet was held Tuesday night.
Clinton-Massie athletes were honored for earning first team All-SCOL status.
The Lady Falcons basketball team had a pair of first-team players — Jordanne Gambill and Brooke Sargent. Sydney Brackemyre was named to the second team and was the only freshman among the top 14 players in the league.
Great job Syd!
