A big congratulations to our 5th Grade Girls Basketball Travel Team for their tremendous performance in winning the 40th Annual/Our Lady of Fatima William L. Davis Memorial Tournament on Sunday.

The Lady Vikings defeated Ave Maria, 27-20 in the Championship Game.

Once again this was a well-run tournament, and it was awesome to a packed gym for this championship game between Hopewell and Ave Maria.

The key to this game was the inside-outside threat that Coach Jamie Yurcina’s team had with the duo of Rilynn Davis and Lydia Jaquay. Davis scored a game-high 12 points, while Jaquay followed her up with 9 points.

Here is a recap of today’s championship win for Hopewell.

1ST QUARTER SUMMARY:
-First basket of the game came on a 3-point shot from Davis, who connected from the top of the circle.  Hopewell 3-0.

-After grabbing a defensive rebound, Jaquay showed off her dribbling skills by driving the length of the court for a layup. Hopewell 5-1.

-Later in the quarter, Jaquay with a missed shot but Davis gets the offensive rebound and puts it back in for 2. Hopewell 7-1.

END OF 1ST QUARTER: HOPEWELL 7 AVE MARIA 1.

2ND QUARTER SUMMARY:
