Our Middle School girls took to the court in their 3rd mini-tournament of the season, matched up in this one against St Michaels’s and Wheeler.

Our first group played great defense against a tall and talented opponent, showing improved awareness and positioning from prior games. Maddie Gustavel ’29 (North Kingstown, RI), Olivia Micklich ’29 (Saunderstown, RI) and Ava Blair ’29 (East Greenwich, RI) all had great moments denying St Michael’s in important moments while Emma Morrison ’28 (East Greenwich, RI) and Brenna Samponaro ’28 (Wakefield, RI) led the charge on offense while playing their normal, lockdown defense. It was a great 16-9 team win for the girls in this one.

Our second group came out with great energy and teamwork and also got the W, taking down Wheeler, 13-7. Ella Wearmouth ’29 (East Greenwich, RI) had a really big game with Everleigh Pascale ’30 (Newport, RI), Charlotte McGinn ’29 (Exeter, RI), Jordan Bradley ’30 (Wakefield, RI), Juliana Sardelli ’30 (Warwick, RI), Lucy Wilhelm ’29 (North Kingstown, RI), Serena Ya ’30 (Cranston, RI) all playing great defense! Multiple players showed up in the scorebook in this one and it was a great team win with energy and support everywhere!!!

We have an end of season middle school tournament next weekend for part of our group and the remaining players will wrap up the season in our “Blue vs White” game on February 27th. It’s been a great season so far with a 5-0-1 record and the girls have all improved so much!!
