The CVHS girls varsity basketball team was defeated by Bishop O’Dowd on Feb. 1, losing with a score of 92-34.
Six minutes into the first quarter, the girls were already losing with a score of 26-4. By the end of first quarter, the score was 32-9 and the Dragons were shooting ahead by a margin of 21 points.
Though the girls put up a great fight to keep the Dragons from scoring, O’Dowd’s girls were shooting basketballs in hoop after hoop.
“This year, we have the youngest team. We lost eight players from last season,” said Coach Jim Lemmon.
Though the players are young, Jenna Sparks, flew on the court, playing a defensive position and blocking O’Dowd’s girls from shooting.
At the end of the second quarter, the Dragons were crushing the Trojans, with a score of 58-17.
As the game continued, the Trojan girls were falling farther behind, with a 52 point difference by the end of the third quarter. The score was 72-27.
With one minute left on the clock, the Trojans’ Jaime Massey made a grand effort to fight back, scoring two points for the team. However, with a gap of 58 points, the Trojans were still defeated.
The girls may not have a lot of experience on the court, but they still gave their best efforts. The Trojans’ record fell to five wins and 16 losses.
“All the girls can do is compete as hard as they possibly can and play smart,” said Lemmon.
