Girls’ JV Basketball Continues to Roll

With a pair of victories against Newton Country Day School and Dedham Country Day this week, the girls’ JV basketball team extended their winning steak to four in a row. Currently, at 4-1 on the season, the team has used a balanced attack to outscore their opponents by a combined 76 points so far. This week the team leaned on Sue Kelman and Emma Kass offensively. Both girls recorded double-digit tallies in the scoring column and finished strong at the basket. On the other side of the court, first-year players Shireen Griffith Ebrahimi and Olive Kiraly took advantage of increased playing time by creating turnovers and grabbing rebounds. The team will look to keep their winning steak alive next week against Nashoba Brooks and Carroll.
