In “B” team girls' basketball action, undefeated No. 1 Edythe J. Hayes downed third seed Southern Middle 39-26 in the Dec. 13 tournament finals. The Panthers used a suffocating press to control the game from the start and finished off their opponent with deliberate slow-down sets, according to Coach Mike Graves. Kate Baker led Hayes with 13 points, and Reagan Gregonis chipped in nine. Starters Amyah Maxwell, Mikalee Bennett, and Ella Flynn helped control inside on the boards, and Shea Eisenhauer was a big spark off the bench with her rebounding and defense.
Also this season, the sixth graders won their district tournament, and the JV squad won the KBC tournament.
