The seventh grade girls' basketball team defeated Scarborough at home yesterday with a score of 31-26. The team worked together and each did their part to contribute to this win, whether it was playing great defense, rebounding or scoring...each player did their part. Defensively, Brianna Lopez, Lily Michaud and Tiffany Smel ran the court and trapped everywhere to force Scarborough to make numerous turn overs. Offensively, Natalie LaBrie had 15 points. Contributing to the win with four points apiece were: Jenita Virak, Tiffany Smel, Leah Cromarty and Kianna Whitmore. Congratulations on a game well played. Our final 7th grade game is on Monday at Mahoney.
