Girls’ basketball thumps Indians to open season

Sam Lack, Sports Editor

If their first game is any indication, this year’s girls’ basketball team is going to have a strong sesason.

Behind a game-high 17 points and 5 assists from Sophomore guard Lydia Kline, the Lady Wildcats dominated their way to a 56-16 victory over the Edgewood Indians.

“It’s great to win the first game,” Kline said. “Now we have confidence going forward, for the rest of the season.”

The Lady Wildcats overwhelmed the Indians from the start, at one point leading 46-10, and their lead was so commanding that officials put the running-clock rule into effect, meaning that the game clock ran uninterrupted for the remainder of the contest.

“It was literally like a practice game,” Junior forward Nora McSorely said. “It was just a warm up game for the rest of the season.”

Aside from Kline’s impressive performance, Freshman Gilian Foster scored 14 points, and senior Victoria D’Esposito tallied a double-double, with 12 points and 12 rebounds.”

“We played really good defense,” Kline said. “That kind of defense leads to really good offense.”

The team continues play on Wednesday night, against the Melbourne Central Catholic Hustlers, with JV competition starting at 5:30 p.m. and Varsity at 7 p.m.
