Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Hyde-Woodstock – 37

Southfield – 49

Fifth ranked Hyde traveled to fourth ranked Southfield to play in the quarter-finals of the New England Tournament.  Southfield were the reigning champions in Class “D” for two years running and were very comfortable in their own gym.  They went on a run and the wolf pack had no answer and found themselves down 17-2 with a lot of time on the clock in the first half.  Defensively the team was flat and offensively nothing was falling.  Hyde could have folded but instead the girls took a breath found it in themselves to fight and came back to within 11 at the end of the half.  In the second half Hyde tightened their belt on defense leading to some steals and easy baskets off turnovers.  The team pulled within five and that was as close as they would get.  Hats off to Southfield for their tough play.  Hyde had a solid season and has much to look forward to in the future due to returning players; Cashmir Fulcher ’15, Janicha Diaz ’14, Jenna Dubinsky ’14, Maia Johnson ’14, Samri Krogmann ’14 and Virginia Garrity ’14.  Thank you to captains Maureen Bellwoar ’13 and four year player Katherine Hagood ’13 for their leadership and inspiration this season.  Thank you also to seniors Jenna Kowalski and Tina Zhang for their contributions the team and its coaches wish you the best next year and beyond.

 

The scoring was as follows:  Cashmir Fulcher ’15 6-1-13, Janicha Diaz ’14 6-2-15, Maia Johnson 2-0-4, Jenna Kowalski ’13 1-1-3, Maureen Bellwoar 0-2-2
