Two Wins Advances Wolfpack Girls Varsity Team to SENE Semi-Finals

Hyde-Woodstock Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Marianapolis

Hyde-Woodstock – 49
Marianapolis – 38

Hyde’s final regular season game was on Monday against cross town rival Marianapolis.  The wolf pack unveiled its press which caused MPS a great deal of trouble getting the ball up the court.  PG Trayneice Mims and senior Dossou Ndiaye combined for all but two of the points in the game.  Trayneice had 5 three pointers to put the team solidly in front.  Junior Joanna Ren came off the bench and played great defense in both rebounding and steals.  The score at the half was Hyde 24 and MPS 19.  The press took its toll and the team captains continued to work together effectively on offense.  Freshman Cameron Yale has been rebounding very well of late and junior Maya Steindler has been a solid contributor on both ends of the floor.  Hyde travels to Providence Country Day in a SENE quarter-final match-up on Wednesday.

Hyde-Woodstock – 52
PCD – 38

Hyde went into the SENE League Tournament as the five seed and traveled to fourth seed PCD on Wednesday in a quarter-final match-up.  The team had lost both games during the regular season.  Hyde scored first and kept the lead the whole game.  Junior Maya Steindler scored 7 much needed points in the first half as PCD played a triangle and two defense on Trayneice Mims and Dossou Ndiaye.  The team pressed which was effective in making PCD struggle to get the ball up the court.  PG Trayneice Mims stole the ball several times which led to lay-ups on the other end.  The wolf pack played well in the first half never relinquishing the lead the score at halftime was Hyde 28 and PCD 21.  In the second half PCD put two defenders on Trayneice so it was senior Dossou Ndiaye that picked up most of the slack, however, the team got scoring from freshmen Cameron Yale and Annika Morris as well as junior Joanna Ren. Once again solid rebounding effort by Cameron Yale, Dossou Ndiaye and Joanna Ren.   Hyde managed to put more distance between themselves and PCD leading by 22 in the second half.  The wolf pack managed to hold off a last minute barrage by PCD to win and move on to the semi-finals on Friday against the number one team St. Andrews.  It was a good, confidence building victory for the girls.
