Cathedral Varsity Basketball played an outstanding game against Sandy Spring during Winterfest on January 26th. Eager students, parents, faculty, and staff formed a crowd in the bleachers, cheering on the Eagles throughout their victorious game.
The Eagles started by dominating the game within minutes. The score by the end of the first half was 21-6 with Cathedral in the lead, and at the final buzzer of the game, NCS won: 41-12. The NCS players came into the game with a great deal of energy, and all of the players played an outstanding game, both offensively and defensively. They were aggressive, striving to be the first to every ball, making foul shots, moving the ball swifty up and down the court, and swishing baskets. Miranda Giambi ‘20 and Chloe Conaghan ‘19 both did an outstanding job of pressing Sandy Spring full court, but especially at the top of the key and at the three-point line. For example, Giambi intercepted the ball from Sandy Springs and passed it down the court to Lilly Keller ‘19, who finished the third quarter on a positive note with a beautiful layup. Conaghan also aggressively intercepted the ball, sprinting down the court in a breakaway and going in for a layup, making for a great start to the last quarter. Post-player Katie Skoff ‘18 dominated, making numerous shots from the block, grabbing many rebounds, and making several foul shots.
Overall, CVB did an amazing job during their Winterfest game, and they look forward to competing in more games throughout the season.
