The Varsity Girls Basketball Team played host to Mt. Mercy Academy on Saturday afternoon and lost 47-23. The girls opened the game down 16-0 which made it difficult to climb back in to the game. Early in the third quarter Grace Zabawa nailed a three pointer from the wing to cut the deficit down to 10 but that was as close as the Lady Griff’s would come for the duration of the game. Despite the result excellent performances were turned in by: Sydney Rosati, Ivette Lewandowski and Ryan Stedman. The girls return to action tonight when they travel to JFK.
On a side note the girls basketball program hosted a “Toys for Tots” game that afternoon which was incredibly successful. Thanks to all the spectators, SGI parents, coaches and players as we were able to raise over $500 and bring in five full boxes of unwrapped toys for families within our community in need of providing a beautiful Christmas for their families. Great job everyone!!!
