St. Francis Intramural Program Off To Flying Start

The St Francis de Sales Girls Intramural basketball program has been going on for five weeks now, and the girls are having a ball.

In the Rookie Division, the undefeated Bishop Kearney girls continued their winning ways, knocking off Fontbonne and a tough St. Francis Prep team.

The team is playing great behind the offensive duo of Courtney McCool and Katie Marquardt, the gritty defense from Claire Hughes, Megan Twomey and Grace DeCrescenzo,

The St. Francis Prep game was very exciting, as Team Kearney came back from a deficit and brought the game into overtime.

In the overtime period, Courtney McCool sank a free throw to win the game with few seconds left on the clock.

Stella Maris won its third straight game to even its record to 3-3. This week's win was a tremendous team effort and saw Kiera Walsh continue her dominant play at center.

Molly Breslin and Alex Wiegert have emerged as formidable forwards by providing potent offense and strong defense. Maddie McDade, Bridget Breslin, Caludia Dana and Brianna Bernath dictate the tempo on both ends of the court with their stellar ball control and blanketing defense. Taylor Tsatsis and Sabrina Lopez are the epitome of flexibility as they move easily from guard, forward and to center as game circumstances dictate.

In the Junior Division, Holy Cross White Powerettes are 3-3. They are gearing up for a playoff run led by Serena Yanello and Jenna Tipaldo. North Carolina improved to 2-3 this weekend in a match versus BC. Elizabeth Sack and Gabrielle Gzegorski led in scoring while Emily Carlton and Kelly Davan were the team's leaders in assists and rebounds.

The St. John's team is having an excellent season. All of the games are competitive and the players are doing well. St. John's top scorers have been Emma Knox, Justine Twomey and Taylor Vegh. The team also gets stellar rebounding and defense from Celeste Lynch and Shannon Maroney.
