Title delight for Warwick Academy
Warwick Academy defeated the Bermuda High School 14-9 in a repeat of last year’s Middle School Girls Basketball Championships.
BHS held a one-point lead late in the third quarter before Samara Darrell scored six unanswered points to give Warwick Academy a lead they would not relinquish.
Darrell was also busy on the defensive end late in the match pulling down vital defensive rebounds which limited opportunities for BHS to score.
Adriana Argent from Warwick led all players in scoring with eight points, while her scoring and control of the game at point guard earned her MVP honours.
Christina Dekock led the BHS scoring with five points with game MVP and captain Zorena Anderson scoring two.
Previously unbeaten BHS earned a place in the final after defeating Saltus in the semi-finals while Warwick defeated Whitney to earn their spot.
MSA led from start to finish in a one-sided middle school boys final. Somersfield entered the match minus their three most experienced and senior players and MSA took advantage on their way to a 29-12 victory.
Tiago Rodrigues was the high scorer for the game. The MSA centre scored seven points in leading the Saints. Drake Kucharik chipped in with five points on his way to being named MVP.
Cody Rego and Jordan Smith each added four points. Somersfield was led by MVP Nick Kempe with six points. Brandon Medeiros added four with Eli Carpol two.
The senior school championships will be settled on April 16 when the Berkeley Institute take on Warwick Academy in the junior varsity finals.
That will be followed by a CedarBridge Academy versus Berkeley Institute double in the varsity girls and boys final.
