Ocean City, Maryland is buzzing with the Baltimore Ravens and Jaguars in town (see picture below). 9th Grade Blue got off to a slow start in game 1 but clicked into a higher gear as the game progressed. Hard work at practice has translated into better offensive setup and execution and the 1-3-1 D proved a handful for the Axiom team from VA. Emily Walker and Taylor Evans led all scorers with 10 each, Marissa Sandone controlled the floor and added 6 with McKenna Kohler cotrolling the paint and tipping in 7. In the a comfortable 49-19 Jags victory. Game 2 saw some stiffer competition against a bigger Maryland team, the Lady Coyotes. The Jags got off to a better start however and built a 12 point lead by mid way through the first half. The Coyotes knocked down 3 3's just before half time to make it a 3 pt game at the half. After half time, again the 1-3-1 shut down the Coyotes scoring and the Jags were able to build a good lead with some quick transition baskets. With 6 minutes to go the lead approached 20 points and the girls were able to keep control of the game until the end. Emily Walker and Marissa Sandone lead all scorers with 9 Taylor Evans, McKenna Kohler and Rachael Hamilton all contributed 8 points and dominated the boards against some much bigger girls. Mack Smith had a break out game on D creating a number of steals with her active hands. Tori Walter got her 3 point shot going(don't talk about her layups!!!). Gab Pisano played some great D and worked her tail off the whole game. Great team effort Jags winning 42-21. On Sunday the girls advanced to their tournament champsionship game but came up short against a team of 10th and 11th Graders. Taylor Evans has 12 points, all 3 pointers.
