Balanced Attack Leads Girls’ JV Hoops to Win over Meadowbrook

After a trio of hard-fought losses to begin the season, the girls’ JV basketball team finally got into the win column this week with a commanding 36-11 win over Meadowbrook at home. Coach Andy Rentschler was proud of his team’s performance, noting that it was a “breakout game for the team as a whole.” Belmont Day excelled in all aspects of the game and received contributions up and down their talented line-up. Seventh grade classmates Lynn Lewis (eight points) and Kiki Friedbauer (seven points) led all scorers while sixth grade classmates Kenna Schneider and Amanie Yusef logged the most minutes of their seasons and contributed on both ends of the floor. The team will look to continue their winning ways next week when they travel to Rashi.
