The SCA Middle School JV Girls Basketball team took a nice long trek east to Fountain Hills on Wednesday for the first of two straight games against the powerful Fountain Hills Falcons.
The SCA squad played a much-improved game of basketball, spreading the court and making strong moves to the basket, led by top scorer Natalia Horan (#35). On defense, stand-out performances from Abi Lund (#5) and Taylor Lach (#20) included demonstrations of the swipe up to steal and the deny posture.
Other SCA scorers included Scarlett Isaacson (#11), Reece Gibson (#14) and Bree Tobin (#31), with Scarlett Campbell (#1) also getting good looks from the short corner, but unable to convert. Julia Claus (#15) and Izzy Thiessen (#4) continued to improve their performance on the perimeter, squaring to the basket to read the defense and make good decision.
