Notice To All Readers 3/29/24

Submitted by trojandave on Fri, 03/29/2024 - 12:09

I have added some content about the Lady Trojans on this site, because I feel that with the title being "Portsmouth Trojans Basketball", that presenting some material about them is necessary and appropriate. While this site has been since its inception in 2011 primarily a Portsmouth boys basketball website, and will continue to be so, there will be some inclusion about the Lady Trojans.

Lady Trojans Make The 1st Final 4 Trip in School History

Submitted by trojandave on Fri, 03/29/2024 - 12:00

The 2023-24 Lady Trojans became the 1st Portsmouth girls basketball team to make the Final 4. PHS tied for the OVC title with Fairland posting a 13-1 conference mark, and rolled through the sectional, district, and regional tournaments without being seriously challenged. The closest game in the tournament up to the Final 4 was a 42-25 win over North Adams in the regional final at Logan HS.

Submitted by trojandave on Tue, 07/18/2023 - 12:27

Trojan senior to be DeAndre Berry is set to become the school's next 1,000 scorer. He is around 320 points shy of that mark, and considering he averaged almost 17 PPG as a junior, should reach 1,000 points rather easily barring any significant injury.

Update 12/16/23: Berry now has 786 points after 4 games of the 2023-24 season. He scored 18 vs. Lawrence Co. KY, 24 vs. Portsmouth Notre Dame, 30 vs. Rock Hill, and 31 vs. Gallia Academy.
