Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Coach Bob Gainey

The varsity girls basketball team opened up league play on Thursday night and lost 48-33. The girls had a difficult time throughout the evening containing Maryvale on the offensive boards. Although there were times of solid play, most notably from Jess Engel, the team couldn’t quite hit their stride for the duration of the game.The loss puts the girls at  3-3 overall and 0-1 in league play.

The girls dropped their game on Monday night to a very good Lake Shore team by a score of 65-26. The girls dealt with some difficult pressure in the backcourt which led to some unfortunate turnovers with Lake Shore turning those mistakes into points. Despite the score, the Lady Griffs never quit at any point during the game. Scorers on the night included: Grace Zabawa (6 points,) Mackenzie Engel (6 points,) Leah Frank (4 points,) Ivette Lewandowski (5 points,) Kelsey Zabawa (3 points) and Ryan Stedman with 2 points.

The highlight on the night came when section 6 awarded their “Character of the Game” participant. This award is given to a player from each team who best reflects: strong character, hustle, sportsmanship, and positive communication (among other traits.) Kelsey Zabawa was the recipient of the award and a well-deserved honor for everything she did last night. Congratulations Kelsey! The girls are back in action on Thursday night when they host Iroquois.
