The boys and girls basketball teams won both their games in blowouts Tuesday night at Awty, while the girls and boys soccer teams split. 

Boys’ basketball won in commanding fashion, almost doubling Awty’s score in a 51-26 win last night, following girls’ basketball win earlier that night, 67-19. The boys’ team moved to 13-8 on the season, including 4-2 in SPC. The girls’ team moved to 14-9, including 5-1 in SPC, and capped off a 7-game win streak going into their final game of the season. Both teams play again on February 7 against St. John’s in a home game that matters to the success of the team.

On the outside of the courts, boys’ and girls’ soccer split games as the girls’ extended their win streak to 5, having scored 25 straight goals without conceding one. Meanwhile, the boys’ represented the sole loss at Awty in their first loss of the season after starting 12-0. The girls’ team currently has a 4-2 record in SPC, and with a win against undefeated St. John’s this Friday, can jump to third in South Zone before SPC. The boys’ team has a 5-1 record, tied with St. John’s ahead of their matchup on Friday to decide who wins first in South Zone for SPC.

“All credit is due to the midfield and defenders to help with another shutout, and to extend our streak of wins to five,” said senior goalkeeper Meredith Huston.

All four teams play their final matches of the season this Friday ahead of SPC competition next weekend.
