The SCA Middle School Girls Junior Varsity Basketball team commenced their 2017-2018 season with a tough game against rivals Northwest Christian School. The Crusaders came to SCA with an imposing line-up of big players, but the hearty Eagles used their new skills to play team defense and work the ball around on offense.

Bree Tobin (#31) and Ana Faustinos (#52) led all scorers with eight points each, alertly driving to the basket and scoring off the dribble when only one defender guarded them. Daphne Garland (#0) shot the jumper with athleticism for four points. Abi Lund (#5), Taylor Lach (#20) and Sophia Lane (#32) all scored a bucket each. Natalia Horan (#35) and Scarlett Campbell (#1) played some lock-down defense, while Reece Gibson (#14) led all rebounders with six. Izzy Thiessen (#4) directed traffic on the court, and Scarlett Isaacson (#11) operated the in-bounds plays skillfully. Julia Claus (#15) blocked two shots to prevent a strong Crusader comeback in the final minutes of the game.

Good job, JV!
