Girls Varsity Basketball
|Falls Church High School||59|
At the halfway point of the season, the Lady Jags posted their eighth win (and their first Conference victory) of the season by crushing the Lady Lancers of Lee HS. The eight wins not only equal the total for all of last season, they continue the trend toward the strongest known regular season in Lady Jaguar history. Falls Church owned this game from start to finish, dominating every quarter on both sides of the ball.
Senior Rasha Benhamida and Junior Sierra Kennard shared the highest scoring honors tonight, while six other Lady Jags players lit up the scoreboard by converting at least one basket. With three more beyond-the-arc baskets tonight, the Falls Church "Three Machine" has revved up for the third straight season as the conference leader in that category with a running tally of 48 of these long-distance baskets after a dozen games. Most notably, senior Leah Shaw's three-pointer tonight was the 100th of her career, establishing her as the Queen of 3s in Falls Church Girls Basketball history.
Scoring Summary: Rasha Benhamida, 17 points; Sierra Kennard, 17 points; Mia Pendleton, 8 points; Amari Faust, 7 points; Leah Shaw, 3 points; Nyeisha Thompson, 3 points; Torrie Maddox, 2 points; Yenessa Kasselbaum, 2 points.
