High School Basketball:

There has been some competitive competition this year in the Friends School Girl’s basketball league. One of the teams from that league was the Foxes from Moorestown Friends. The Foxes had just won a close game against George School and were looking to make it two in a row against St. Mary’s Hall. Participating in a non-league girl’s basketball game, Moorestown Friends was able to use their entire lineup to come away with the win. A seventeen point second quarter proved to be the difference for Friends in their 48-12 victory at home.

The two teams worked to get the ball inside early on to establish a lead. After one quarter was complete, Moorestown Friends owned a four point lead that they quickly expanded in the second quarter. The shots were beginning to fall for Friends while St. Mary’s had a bit of trouble getting their offense in gear on this day. Moorestown Friends would cruise to the victory with ten players finding a way to score. Lauren Nigro finished with 9 points and Jessica Oribabor added 8 points for Moorestown Friends. St. Mary’s was lead by Stephanie Spicer who finished with 6 points.
