Lady Eagles Advance in Basketball Play-offs

Words: Mike Moore

On Friday, Feb. 27, the Centennial girls’ basketball team took the court against the Long Reach Lightning for an opening round playoff game. The Eagles won 57-40.

The Eagles got out to a hot start as junior Ally Driscoll set the tone early, knocking down key jump shots to establish an early lead. Senior Anna Mitchell scored in double figures, but also had a great game all around, playing great defense and creating many transition opportunities for the Eagles.

In the second half, freshman Kelly Simmons led the way, hitting everything from jump shots to lay ups and free throws to score the majority of her 15 points in the last two quarters. Centennial also got good all around play from seniors Jordan Burke and Kimmy Eads, who both had two points. Driscoll finished with 19, Mitchell had 11, and juniors Jesse Dunagan, Kewa Gray, and Peyton Conley all finished with 2,2, and 3 points respectively.

The Eagles will travel to Poly for their next step in the playoffs.
