Basketball, Girls: Varsity defeats Choate

Event Details

Deerfield girls’ basketball ended their successful season on a high note on Friday evening when they defeated perennial rival Choate Rosemary Hall.  The Choate gym was packed with rowdy student fans, and the DA players stayed calm, cool and collected in the face of loud distractions.  Deerfield went into half time down by 11 points, but vowed to come out in the second half and leave it all on the floor.  They displayed poise and determination in executing their press break and half court plays with patience and precision.  Felicia Renelus hit a key three-pointer with approximately four minutes left to give Deerfield a 42-41 lead.  Megan Graves and Emma Reavis hit important free throws in the final minutes to further secure the lead.  The final buzzer sounded with Deerfield ahead by 8 points and the scoreboard reading 53-45.
