Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Coach Bob Gainey
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 varsity girls basketball team pulled off a thrilling 40-33 win over the JFK Bears on Monday night. The girls trailed for most of the game and were down by as many as 8 points in the 4th quarter. The tide turned behind the stellar defense of Grace Zabawa and Sydney Rosati. Both girls were fantastic in forcing turnovers to stop the Bears from scoring. Ivette Lewandowski was fouled while taking a three pointer with two minutes left in the game. She sank all three free throws to tie the game up. From there, Rosati buried a three in the corner and Grace Zabawa made an acrobatic layup to help the girls pull away. Ivette Lewandowski and Sydney Rosati each finished with 12 points, Grace Zabawa had 8 points, Mackenzie Engel chipped in 4 points and Ryan Stedman, along with Kelsey Zabawa, scored two points each to lead the Griffs to a big comeback win. The girls are now 1-1 on the season and open their league schedule on Thursday when they play host to the Maryvale Flyers. Great job girls!
