Hyde Lady Phoenix 35
Seacoast Christian 18
The Hyde Lady Phoenix finished out an undefeated month of December with a convincing home victory over Seacoast Christian 35-18. This was truly a team victory as everyone in the blue, gold, and white uniform played and contributed to the team’s success and helped the team to improve their season record to 4-0. Jr. Shannon Ward led all scorers with 12 points while teammate Allie Helfrich chipped in 9 points to the team total. Fr. Chloe Blaylock added 5 points and Jr. Cailin Darling scored her first basket of the season to the delight of her teammates on the bench. Jr. Sabrina Wang was excited to suit up for the first time with the varsity team and she made the most of the minutes that she played and gained valuable experience. Perhaps one of the greatest highlights was when the team took the opportunity during a time out to cheer, “Happy Birthday” to their injured teammate, Jr. Carolyn Moore who was keeping the books at the scorer’s table. The team is excited to welcome back Moore to action when we return from break. The Lady Phoenix basketball team would like to thank all of its fans and wish them and each other a happy and safe holiday season. We look forward to returning in 2013 to continue the ongoing RISE OF THE PHOENIX.
