Spirited young W&L girls basketball team loses to St. Margaret’s

Coach Kelsey Farmer is trying to rebuild the W&L Eagles girl’s basketball team with young and spirited players, but playing at home against the St. Margaret’s Scotties the opponent’s size and experience were the deciding factors in a 69 to 24 loss.
St. Margaret’s, of Tappahannock, displayed its size and skills immediately, running up a 28 to 2 first period lead.  “St. Margaret’s is experienced and well disciplined, and most of them played varsity last year,” Coach Farmer said after the game.  Elizabeth McCarthy was the Scotties leading scorer with 22 points.  Genesis Claure had 15 for the visiting team.

“We have one returning player and many of our girls have less than a year of experience,” Coach Farmer said.  The one returning player, senior guard Jaid White, led Eagles scorers with 10 points.  Freshman Alexia Tate had nine points and sophomore Teondra Brooks contributed three points.

Coach Farmer, who lost 10 players to graduation last year, praised the competitiveness of her team. “Jaid is my only returning player, my most experienced player.  She is my go-to-girl,” Farmer said.  “Alexia is aggressive and developing fast.  She’s a freshman, but she has become our most versatile player.”

After falling behind 38 to 4 at the half time and losing the battle of the boards to the taller Scotties, the Eagles girls showed their mettle in the second half, scoring 20 points to St. Margaret’s 31. But despite their better rebounding and ball-handling, they were unable to close the gap against the veteran Scotties.

In the junior varsity girl’s basketball game played before the varsity contest, the W&L JV girls gave a hint of better days ahead for the W&L girl’s basketball program by trouncing the St. Margaret’s JV 48 to 16.  Alexia Wilson was the high point girl for the JV Eagles team with 28 points.
