In their opener against Olmsted Falls tonight, Strongsville will focus on smart play, tough defense and hard work to get the season started on the right foot
Strongsville High basketball fans are ready for a new season. Only question is, are the players ready, too? Coming into this year, the Mustangs lost five senior starters, and veteran coach Joe Lynch is now looking to a fresh set of upper classmen to step up. Seniors Sean Alexander, Justin Stephens, Brady Armitage and Jacob Even are the leaders of the new-school Mustangs, and according to the up-and-comers, they’re prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.

Mustangs knock off previously unbeaten Bulldogs; White scores 36
Judging from the crowd, this was neither a make-up game nor a playoff primer. It was the regular season finale and “Senior Night.” It was also unofficially the start of the playoffs. Both boys’ basketball teams, like the fans in the attendance, filled the Strongsville High School gymnasium with heart and passion. This Northeast Ohio Conference (NOC) grudge match between the two rivals featured pointed passing and lights-out shooting that would not be contained in four quarters of play. The Mustangs needed overtime to topple previously unbeaten Garfield Heights, 86-79, on Saturday night.
