Deerfield’s season ended on Wednesday with a loss to Hotchkiss in the Quarterfinals of the New England 8 tournament. Travelling to Hotchkiss for the game, Deerfield took control of the game in the first half. Pushing the pace and easily scoring in transition, the Big Green seemed to have the Bearcats’ number. However, multiple possessions resulting in a turnover in the beginning of the second half turned the momentum in favor of the home team. Deerfield let a six-point lead slip away, and dropped the playoff game by a final score of 49-37. Deerfield finished the game with 24 turnovers as a team, and failed to execute down the stretch as the game started to slip away.
Despite a less-than-desired ending to the season, Deerfield honors their seven seniors, Kayla Ali, Caroline Ashford, Lili Brown, Kate Ginna, Becca Harrington, Jess Hom and Libby Murray, for their leadership and dedication throughout the entire season.
