SPARTA, NJ – The girls basketball took down Mount Olive on Tuesday winning 52-26.
Captain Olivia Bouma-Hannam said several of the girls were coming back from illness explaining why they were slow to start falling behind in the first quarter 10-9. Once they got warmed up they girls played strong putting up 30 points in the next two quarters.
“As long as we continue to come out with energy, we’ll do well,” Bouma-Hannam said. “We have the skills we just need the momentum.”
Brynn McCurry was a leader on offence with 27 point and defense with 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and three steals. She had 11 two pointers and dropped in 5 foul shots.
