Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Chartiers Valley girls basketball team.
"Ashley Battle has seen high enough levels of basketball, from high school, to college to professional, from domestic to international leagues, to know one season is not a reason for panic.
After a highly successful collegiate and professional career, Battle began her coaching career last year at Chartiers Valley.
She had to fill the shoes of Spencer Stefko, who resigned after leading the Colts to the WPIAL Class AAAA final in 2013. Battle also had to take over a team that was competing in Section 4-AAAA, home to veteran coaches and powerhouse programs, including Mt. Lebanon, Bethel Park and Upper St. Clair.
The Colts struggled. They finished 7-15 overall and 4-8 in section play, missing the WPIAL playoffs."
