The NYO girls basketball season tipped off last night with 2 great games. In the first game, the Majors Knights, coached by Pace seniors (and NYO Girls Basketball Alumni) Morgan Baker and Anna Brown, prevailed over the always tough War Eagles. In celebration for this effort, school was cancelled for Pace Academy for Thursday. In the photo, coaches Baker and Brown give advice to the players, while a few are distracted by the other interesting stuff going on inside the gym.
In the second game, Bill Klein's Lady Lions defeated Fred Fletcher's Tigers 20-19 in an overtime thriller to start the season. Hayden Bush's basket with 20 seconds left proved to be the game winner. Audrey Davies (16 points) led the Lady Lions while Kate Fletcher had 13 for the Tigers.
