Basketball, Girls: Varsity defeats St. Paul’s

Event Details

Deerfield earned its first official win of the season on the road against St. Paul’s School on Saturday.  The team came out fired up and quickly established themselves in the first few minutes, led by an impressive 4 for 4 run of three-pointers from Tess Mannix (she finished the game 5 for 8 from behind the arc).  From that point forward, Deerfield held the lead for the rest of the game.  At the end of the first half, Deerfield went cold for a few minutes, which allowed St. Paul’s to tighten the gap heading into halftime.  While St. Paul’s cut Deerfield’s lead to just 4 points at one point in the second half, DA maintained their composure, hitting from the foul line and making some clutch steals in the final minutes (particularly Emma Reavis and Grace Arcoleo) to finish the game 8 points ahead.  Tess Mannix led all scorers with 20 points.  Emma Reavis earned 13 points, Claire Cummings netted 11 points, and Melissa Mitrovic added 10 points in Deerfield’s balanced scoring attack.
