Girls falls to the Little Hawks

The energy was electric last night as both of the Trojan basketball teams traveled to meet with cross-town rival City High in their brand new gym. The girls game was first and although senior and starting guard Emma Ingersoll-Weng was out with a torn ACL, that didn’t stop Mayer’s squad from bringing the intensity from the start. 

City High being ranked number two and West being ranked number four, there was no doubt this was going to be a fast-paced game. Anna Prouty ’23 showed up on the court from the beginning putting up the first 8 points for the Trojans. Melae’ Lacy ’24 and Avery Vest ’22 added some three-pointers to the board, setting West at 20-17 against the Little Hawks by the end of the 1st quarter.  It was a quick and close game throughout the first half but the Trojans had trouble keeping the Little Hawks from driving the ball down the court, setting the Trojans trailing 36-25 at halftime. Tate led the girls in this game with a total of 18 points. 

West came out of the locker room ready to fight with juniors Keiko Ono-Fullard and Meena Tate running the court making the Trojans trail behind City 53-45 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Ultimately the Little Hawks put up 65 points and left West trailing at 52 points. West put up a good fight against City High junior Kelsey Joens who had 22 points for the Little Hawks.
