As the regular season winds down for the 2003-04 girl's basketball season, sometimes it can be hard to focus on the final games of the season. For some, their basketball season will end, but for others the season is extended for as long as your team comes out on the winning side during the playoffs. The Minutemaids from Washington Township was that team not only prepping for the playoffs, but also leading the Olympic Conference American Division. During their interdivision basketball game against Pennsauken, Township's second quarter surge built a lead that was able to withstand the Lady Indians rally in the final quarter. Washington Township picked up the 56-50 victory at Pennsauken High School.
Washington Township expanded on their first quarter lead to double-digits as they led 31-15 at the half. Both teams played an evenly match third quarter, but Pennsauken would begin to chip away at their deficit. Washington Township’s first half success was too great for Pennsauken to overcome. Township would hold onto their lead to pick up the victory. Jessica Saggiomo finished with a team high 18 points and Amanda Jennings added 13 points for Washington Township. Amber Parker led all scorers for Pennsauken with 23 game high points and Shamira McNair dropped in 15 points.
