8th grade girls’ basketball wrap-up
The Washington Middle School girls’ eighth-grade basketball team recently finished a successful season. The “A” team finished with a record of 7-3, the “B” team with a record of 2-6-1 and the “C” team with a record of 0-1.
“This group of girls would have broken some records but we did not get to play our last two games. One was a scheduling issue and the other was due to weather. They are a group of girls who enjoy the game and are very competitive. They have quite a bit of speed and love to attack the basket. They are not afraid of contact,” head coach Angie Shrader said.
Morgan Brinning led Washington in scoring on the season with 105 points. Brinning also led in steals with 46. Brooke Stout set the pace for Washington in rebounding with 53.
Brinning’s point total fell just 53 short of breaking Washington Middle School’s record for points in a season. She was also just two steals away from breaking the single-season steals record.
Coach Shrader has done an excellent job developing this talented class of girls. The entire community will look forward to seeing these girls play as freshmen at Washington High School next winter.
