Eagle girls continue to battle

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  The girls varsity basketball team of Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) dropped a pair of contests last week, losing to both Lowell Catholic High School and Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School.

  The Crusaders exacted revenge on MVRCS after falling to the Eagles earlier in the season.  Senior captain Liliana Palomino produced a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.  Freshman Bailey DeLeire excelled on the defensive end while continuing to find her stride as the point guard.

  The team dropped a close contest at home to Northeast with DeLeire leading the way with 16 points and Palomino snaring 12 rebounds.  Senior captain Mairead St. Clair, in her first action back since sustaining an injury, had eight points and seven rebounds.  Sophomore Ava Green had three points and five rebounds.

  “Once again, our girls understand off the jump what our plan of execution is to give us an early lead and a fighting chance,” said coach Jonathan Currier said after Northeast game. “We have established an identity of defense and rebounding will give us ample opportunities to beat anyone night in, night out. It came down to missing many makeable shots in the third and credit goes to Northeast’s defense during that critical period. Our girls show effort and fight all the way until the end, but tonight wasn’t our night.”
