The U16 girls retained their County Championship title on Monday.  The girls beat St Martin’s 78–53 in a very physical game.  In the first quarter they played some excellent basketball with Zoe Willis scoring an impressive 16 points in the first 10 minutes and taking the lead.  Megan Jones and Summer Osborne also scored 3 pointers in the first quarter.  In the second quarter St Martin’s came out fighting and won by 15–23.  The girls now only had a lead of 8 points.  The third quarter was extremely close with Greensward stretching their lead by an extra 2 points.  The final quarter was going to be close but the girls showed their quality with winning this quarter and the game.   Megan Jones who had been injured for the second and third quarters came back into the final quarter with a bang, scoring 10 points.  Congratulations to Zoe Willis who scored an incredible 35 points.
