Girl’s Middle School – Fifth game of the season!
Skye O’Connell had six points! She really has been a strong player under the hoop. Our 8th graders did a great job leading the younger players who had significant playing time this game. Although Gordon was physically stronger we played with great strength and perseverance. For those that were afraid due to size they stepped up and played great defense!
Solid Effort Falls Just Short
- RHS 14 and BCA 15
- Sydney Boss – 2 pts. Lexi Cote – 2 pts. Katie Kerchasky – 2 pts. Tina Greim – 6 pts.
Once again Lexi Cote dominated on defense, along with Sydney Boss. Tina Griem showed her focus on the line after a technical foul against Barrington. August Moran, Izzy Rishworth, Katie O’Neil and Abbey Grandin all showed great improvement on defense. This game was extremely physical, but we were tough – even with the close loss. I am very proud of these girls!
Next game is a Valenines day date with Gordon!
The third game of the season is a victory!
Lexi Cote & Skye Connell were dominate under the basket both offensively and defensively. Franny McCaughey, Katie Kerchasky and Sydney Boss did an amazing job helping led the team. Our 7th & 8th graders blended nicely together while running our offensive plays. Our 6th graders all had an impact on today’s win with playing time, and cheering! This is our first win of the season!!
Tomorrow we will be playing away at Barrington Christian Academy!
