TROY - When he returned to Troy Christian this season, Dick Steineman had a plan. It's already paying off for the Eagles. Troy Christian (11-3, 4-1 Metro Buckeye Conference) was simply too much for Dayton Christian to handle Thursday night, holding the Warriors to a mere three field goals in a 49-10 victory. "We set a goal to have a winning season this year and start to change the culture," Steineman said. "For some of the seniors, I was their fourth head coach in the last four years. But they've bought into my plan, and we're seeing some results." And when it comes to these Eagles, everybody pitches in. "We have good athletes and are about nine people deep," Steineman said. "We keep running them in and out so our legs stay fresh. We have a rule that no one plays more than three or four minutes at a time, and the kids buy into that." It showed in the scoring, too, as no Eagles hit double digits in the win. Amanda Benjamin led the way with nine points, Amanda Slone added eight and Lydia Demmitt had eight points, six rebounds and six steals. Becca Lybarger led the team with 10 rebounds and Jordane Varvel had six steals. "Our rebounding and pressure defense overwhelmed an undermanned Dayton Christian team," Steineman said. Troy Christian takes on Emmanuel Christian on Monday. DC - 10 Ritz 0-1-1, Rosenfels 2-1-7, Collins 1-0-2. Totals: 3-2-10. TC - 49 Sa. Campbell 0-1-1, Mo.
