Yesterday, the girls varsity basketball team traveled to Nobles and Greenough School to play in the New England Prep School Athletic Conference (NEPSAC) tournament for the first time in 10 years.  In an impressive upset win, the #7 seeded Deerfield team handily defeated the #2 seeded Nobles by 16 points.  Tess Mannix led Deerfield’s scoring with 16 points on 6/8 field goal attempts, including 4/4 from behind the arc.  Claire Cummings earned a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while senior captain Emma Reavis earned a rare triple-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists.  Kelly Lahart and Melissa Mitrovic rounded out the balanced scoring with 11 points apiece.  The Deerfield squad showed poise and determination from the moment they stepped on the court, and they controlled the pace of the game from the outset.  For the first time in recent Deerfield history, the girls are moving on to the semi-final round of the NEPSAC tournament and will play Loomis Chaffee School at Loomis this Saturday.
