Everett girls’ basketball takes on host Malden Catholic Friday night with postseason on the line

  The Everett High School girls’ basketball team (9-5 in the Greater Boston League, 9-8 overall) bounced back nicely with two wins after a tough loss to Lynn Classical on Jan. 31, 44-33.

  Two nights later, the local quintet topped Lynn English, 63-59. Senior captain Kayley Rossi was the star of the show after accounting for 27 points and seven rebounds. “[Rossi] also went seven of eight in free throws, hitting some big ones down the stretch, before sealing the deal with the game-winning shot,” said coach Riley Dunn.

  “Sophomore Emilia Maria Babcock and junior Malaica Guilaume were next up against the Bulldogs on offense with 14 and 12 points, respectively,” added the Everett coach. “I was very proud of the team’s composure and resiliency under pressure.”

  The Crimson Tide girls were then at home on Tuesday night, Feb. 7, just in time for Senior Night, and they completed the celebration with a resounding victory over Somerville, 52-28. “It was a beautiful way to honor and celebrate our seniors and their commitment and dedication to this program throughout the last four years,” said Dunn.

  Rossi and Babcock paced the offensive attack with 10 points apiece. Senior Nehemie Lucien chipped in with eight points, while pulling down 10 rebounds.

  “Major shoutout to our seniors Kayley, Japhnie [Pierre], Nehemie, Jojo [Nehemie Joseph], Lamiah [Wyzard], Brooke [Brookelyn Acevedo], Tanaeja [Elie], Tatiana [Moran] and our amazing manager Leandra [Germain],” said Dunn after Tuesday night’s game.

  The Everett girls will be playing a Friday night game this week at Malden Catholic against the Lancers, starting at 7 p.m., and a win down the street in Malden will clinch a postseason berth for Dunn’s squad.
