On March 12th, the SAR JV Girls Basketball traveled to TABC to take on Ma’ayanot in the Yeshiva League championship game.

The two teams were engaged in a defensive battle from the start and at the end of the first quarter SAR held onto a slim 8-6 lead.

In the second quarter, the Lady Sting showed why they were playing for a championship. A combination of timely shots, clutch free-throw shooting, and strong defense vaulted the SAR lead to 18-9 at halftime.

In the third quarter, SAR continued to play with the same tenacity on both sides of the ball, which extended their lead to 30-16 at the quarter’s end. Ma’ayanot was unable to mount a comeback, and the Lady Sting held on for a 39-26 victory.

Sophomore Rebecca Kann led SAR with 11 points and was named Most Valuable Player at the game’s end, while freshmen Rebecca Hyman, Sophie Hecht and Hannah Gabay scored 9, 8 and 7 points, respectively, in the win.

Congratulations to coaches Adam Brick and Abby Marcus, as well as all of the players, on winning SAR’s only championship of the fall sports season. Hopefully, more championships will come in the spring!
