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.

MAJORS: BEARS RIDE TENACIOUS DEFENSE TO CHAMPIONSHIP

This game was a classic matchup, that would be decided by which team could impose their will on the other. Would it be the speed and athleticism of the Bears or the rebounding prowess and raw power of the Cougars?

In the end it was the Bears tenacious defense and constant ball pressure which proved to be the difference in their run to the championship. This game started out slowly and was a back in forth slugfest; at halftime the Cougars led 14-12.  In the second half the Bears  began to turn the tables and appeared to wear down and frustrate their opponent, never allowing the Cougars to get comfortable on offense, while going on a 10-3 run in the 3rd quarter which sent them into the final quarter up 5. The Cougars attempted to apply their own pressure defense but the Bears were always able to find the open girl and capitalize. Ultimately, it was the great ball movement and outside shooting of the Bears that led to the 32-21 victory.

Tyler Brazle helped keep the game close with 13 points for the Cougar, while Jayden Worswick and Gracie Taylor each chipped in with 4 points.

Tyler McCamey had 16  huge points to lead the charge but the balanced scoring that involved all the other Bears players: Gracie Hudgins, Maggie Graham, Sarah Fuller, Lexi Baker, Lily Mason, Abby Testani and Aubrey Vaughn made this the ultimate team victory.

Congratulations to Coach David Baker, staff and team on an excellent championship performance and a well deserved Majors Title and a special thanks to all the coaches and volunteers who helped make this a very memorable girls basketball season.
