Welcome to Girls Basketball at GVMS
A big congratulations to your varsity girls on a nice win over rival Marsteller. A fantastic 2nd half where we outscored the Bulldogs by 10 points was the difference.
Every girl played at least a few minutes to finish up strong. Great rebounding by Amelia Gresham, Ava McComb, and Caitlin Blackman was pivotal. Each had at least 6 rebounds led by Ava's 9. Caitlin also added 3 assists and 2 steals to go with her 10 points. She made 4 BIG free throws in the 4th quarter.
Scoring points also were Madison Birge, Amelia Gresham, Ava McComb, Madeline Yaeger, and Cierra Brown.
The girls showed true heart by avenging two earlier season losses with wins this week over Bull Run and Marsteller. A truly special group of girls.
Yet again our girls fought from tip to ending buzzer. We were outscored by about 2 points each quarter and lost to a very tough (and still undefeated) team in Reagan. Allowing them 2 to 3 opportunities to score on most possessions made it just too hard to overcome. We did dive on the floor, we did show patience on offense, we did play exceptional defense.
Leading the way once again was Caitlin Blackman who scored 12 hard earned points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals. Cierra Brown and Ava McComb grabbed 7 rebounds each to give us a chance. Also scoring points were Madeline Yaeger, EV Hansen, Madison Birge, Amelia Gresham, and Ava McComb.
Our last game of the year is Thursday. Come out and support your hard working girls.
Congratulations goes to the varsity Hawks on their nail-biting 3 point win at Bull Run. Trailing most of the game with multiple girls in foul trouble, the Hawks played almost a flawless 4th quarter. Holding the Eagles to 2 points and scoring 9 of our won. We played the most unselfish game of the year distributing a season high 11 assists led by Madeline Yaeger's 4. Amelia Gresham and Ava McComb owned the boards with 7 each. Despite foul troubles, Caitlin Blackman led the team with 4 steals, 7 points including a big 3-pointer and 2 free throws. Also scoring points for our well balanced attack were Cierra Brown, Madison Birge, EV Hansen, Amelia Gresham, Ava McComb and Madeline Yaeger.

Well, you would not recognize the girls who played at Stonewall if you saw my girls Tuesday night. With our star guard and center injured/sick. We needed everyone to step up. Step up they sure did. Led by Madeline Yaeger and her 14 points 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 assists. She also played tough defense (along with Kamryn Glenn) on their top player. Madison Birge and EV Hansen controlled the ball for the Hawks on offense...patiently looking for open looks. Madison had 4 assists to lead in that category. Cleaning up the rebounds was Amelia Gresham with 7 boards. Cierra Brown had 6 big points...including a go ahead basket with little time left on the clock in quarter 4. BIG bucket!! Also scoring points were Hayley Ferguson, Madison Birge, and Amelia Gresham.

The Varsity Hawks played a tough defense all game holding the Bulldogs of Marsteller to 22 points. We just could not get our shots to fall. To their credit-they dove on the floor, hustled every play, ran up and down the court, contested shots...etc. Just could not make the shots. It happens.
Leading scorer was Amelia Grisham who had 6 points. She also was our top rebounder with 6 boards.Also scoring were EV Hansen, Madison Birge, and Caitlin Blackman.
We travel to Stonewall Monday in hopes of getting back on track.
Hope to see you there.
