Summit girls basketball team hosted Victory Christian last week and after a slow start, rallied towards the end pulling off a win and continuing their winning streak to 5-0.
“The girls played a good game,” said Coach Jeremy Robinson. “It was very competitive. It took us a while to get going offensively and Victory came out shooting the ball well. The girls stayed after it and eventually in the 4th quarter we were able to pull ahead for good.”
Summit beat Victory 52-36 and high scorers include Summit Taylor Robinson who scored 19, Sydney Sinclair had a career best with 13 points, and Christina McDonald put 9 on the board.
Taylor said they did well despite a slow start.
“We need to work on staying on our man and looking for people who are open,” said Taylor. “But I think in the second half we improved. We got more into the game and made the most of the shots we took.”
The Lady Bears played Victory a week earlier on the road and won 47- 34. Robinson said Summit Chloe Crawford came up big in that game by dominating the inside and scoring 19.
Summit Sarah Betty said the recent win at home wasn’t their best game, but they’ll take it.
“They had 2-3 good shooters that were tough to stop and some long cross court-passes, but we just weren’t ready in the first half,” said Betty. “Our heads weren’t in the game. Then we kicked up our speed and defense and came back in the second.”
Summit Karina Morales said they couldn’t get it to come together until the second half.
“I think we did pretty good,” said Morales. “We had good communication, but in the first half we were tense. We need to start off the game with more focus and kick up our defense earlier.”
Summit Jazmin Barranco said she’s happy with the outcome, but agreed the first half needed some work.
“We played well, but we could have played better,” said Barranco. “We needed to concentrate more on defense and which man we need to guard.”
