Girls Varsity Basketball Loses in Overtime to West Catholic in the Regional Championship

Game Date
Mar 9, 2023
Score
EAGLES : 45
OPEN: 53

Thursday night the Eagles finished their season. It was a heartbreaking end, but it was also the night the girls had been waiting for after four long months and they knew it would be a very hard fight. The Eagles became the first team to take West Catholic (the overall number 1 seed) to an overtime finish. After a wonderfully executed game plan and an impressive rally after a tough third quarter, the girls left every ounce of themselves on the court. As a coach it was one of those days you could not be more proud of, but you wish the outcome could have been different. Katelyn LaRue was outstanding with the ball in her hands and went down fighting, finishing with 22 points, 15 of them from behind the arc. Meanwhile Pace Rickard defended another Miss Basketball nominee better than we could have ever asked. Lydia and Hannah Sall were dynamic in finding each other down low and had great moments of attacking at the rim. Alexia Meeuwsen added huge minutes and made a big impact with pressure down low and great heads up play. Flavia Karungi was leading the bench squad in an electric Comstock Park gym. These seniors changed this program for the better and have SO much to hold their heads high about. The girls fought back from being down 12 points and even had a chance at a shot to win at the end of regulation. It was an amazing night and we could not be more proud of them. Thank you so much Eagles, you made everyone around you better.
