  • The 7th grade girls’ basketball team lost a hard fought game against Charlotte Christian yesterday evening. Charlotte Christian had a 5’11” center that created a lot of problems in the paint as she had numerous blocks. However, the Cougars defense created a lot of turnovers out of their 42 press. The Cougars played a great second half as the 42 press continued to cause turnovers but our shots were just not falling. We missed 8 free throws and numerous layups and bunnies. The Cougars were extremely vulnerable as a key starter was unable to play due to being sick.  Christina Stylianou led the Cougars with 4, Maya Sturgies added 3, and Jena Metwalli contributed 2. The Cougars will work hard at practice to work on all aspects of shooting as they play three home games in a row next week. The final score was 28-9.
