Lilly Wortman

Clear Fork's Lilly Wortman drives past Ontario's Lizzie Nagel during a Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference game at Ontario. Wortman is averaging 7.9 points and a team-best 7.1 rebounds a game.

A junior sharpshooter, Labaki was one of seven letterwinners coach Scott Sellers welcomed back from last year’s district runner-up squad. The one missing piece from that team, however, was impossible to overlook.
