On Tuesday January 23, the lady Sequoits traveled to Grayslake Central to play against the Rams. After a hard match, the Sequoits fell short by nine points but stay optimistic about the rest of their season.

In the beginning of the game, the Sequoits started the first quarter strong with junior post Rachel Phillips and senior shooting guard Olivia Ori both scoring three points. Although the first quarter ended with the score of 18-6 in favor of the Rams, the Sequoits stayed hopeful.

During the second quarter, the Sequoits gained the lead of 26-24. Phillips got four points for the team along with junior Kaitlynn Stay contributing five points of her own. In addition, junior guard Piper Foote scored three points and Ori scored two points adding to the lead at the end of the second quarter.

The Sequoits then fell short during the third quarterwith the Rams pushing past the Sequoits by three points. Points in t

he third quarter were scored by Phillips and freshman post Faith Miller. The end of the quarter ended with the score of 37-34.

“I believe I need to work on not getting in much of a panic when I have the ball and also, I think that if I could drive to the basket more I’ll be able to score more points,” junior Noor Abdellatif said. “ I think that I played really good defense for the amount of rebound and steals I had in the game. Defense is probably my best skill while playing.”

After the tough match against the LadyRams, the Sequoits ended the game with the final score of 49-40. The final scorers were Phillips and Foote contributing six points in the last minutes. The girls’ next game is Saturday, January 27 at Round Lake.
