Last night the Girls JV Basketball team improved their record to 2-1 with their second straight win defeating host City Honors 42-20. Meg Rehrauer led the Griffs with 12 points followed by Gracie Attebery with 7 points and Rachel O’Neal and Marie Emerling with 6 points each.
The Varsity Girls Basketball team pulled off a big upset last night by defeating City Honors 34-27. The girls defense was incredible throughout the game holding the opposition to only 7 points at halftime. Despite leading by 6 the girls found themselves down by 4 points going into the 4th quarter. That’s when Ivette Lewandowski decided to take the game over by scoring 9 of her game high 19 points in the final 8 minutes. Besides Ivette’s scoring there’s no way the team would have been able to come back without the toughness of Ryan Stedman, Bella Oakley, Kelsey Zabawa and Mackenzie Engel. The girls did a great job holding their top scorer (27 points per game) to 17 points. Nyah Solly gave her team a big boost with her hustle on defense, as did Sydney Rosati. The game was competitive throughout and the Griffs finally got a little separation after Grace Zabawa layup in transition. Other scorers on the night included: Sydney Rosati (4 points,) Grace Zabawa (4 points,) Bella Oakley (3 points,) and Leah Frank with 2 points. The girls are now 2-1 and return to action when they host MEC in the Emerling Tourney. Great job girls!
