Marcellus girls improve to 14-1, finally reach state Class B rankings

first_imgIt took getting to 13-1 for the Marcellus girls basketball team to finally crack the state Class B rankings, entering last week at the no. 18 spot, though still behind three other Section III sides -South Jefferson, Bishop Grimes and Oneida.With a chance to improve upon that mark, the Mustangs traveled to Hannibal last Thursday and again was quite impressive, cruising to a 57-30 win over the Warriors.An airtight defense produced a 29-15 halftime edge. Then Marcellus closed 15-5, led by Katie MacLachlan, who put in 15 points.Sarah Fallon earned 11 points, while Hannah Durand, Hannah Rogalia and Sam Wynne each finished with eight points.Not to be forgotten in the Class B picture, Westhill gained a major shot of confidence last Tuesday night when it pulled away late to defeat its neighbors from Bishop Ludden 56-45 for its fifth win in a row.Though it never trailed after the game’s opening minutes, the Warriors saw the Gaelic Knights keep up with them throughout the first three periods.Led by Amarah Streiff (16 points) and Lauren Petrie (15 points), Ludden matched baskets with Westhill and only trailed by three, 40-37, going into the fourth quarter.But then the Warriors held the Gaelic Knights without a field goal for nearly seven minutes as it put together a decisive 13-2 run, with Catherine Dadey and Jenna Larrabee at the forefront.Dadey hit on three 3-pointers early and a series of baskets late to finish with 22 points, adding seven assists. Larrabee nearly had a triple-double, augmenting her 21 points with 13 rebounds and eight blocks as Erica Gangemi got nine points.Perhaps that disappointment for Ludden carried over because it lost again to Central Square 48-36 a day later, but recovered on Friday for a big 54-47 win over Bishop Grimes.Much of that was due to Streiff, the freshman forward earning 31 points on everything from rebound baskets to a pair of 3-pointers.Ludden took the lead for good when it went on an 8-0 run late in the second quarter to break a 20-20 tie. With Streiff netting nine points in the third quarter, the Gaelic Knights built a 39-26 advantage.That cushion was needed, since Grimes would increase its pressure and whittle that deficit to single digits, but get no closer than five in the final seconds of the game.Then it turned around again for Ludden on Sunday as it lost, 52-47, to Christian Brothers Academy in the Pathfinder Bank Zebra Classic at Onondaga Community College’s Allyn Hall.The Brothers led by as much as eight in the first half and was up 23-18 at the break. Helped by key 3-pointers from Leanna Heitmann, CBA extended its margin to 38-26 late in the third quarter, and would need that cushion.Cold from the field most of the way, Ludden finally started to hit some 3-pointers in the final period, and got the margin down to 49-44 with a 3-pointer in the final minute to pull within two that clanged off the rim.Ultimately, CBA senior Brooke Jarvis put the game away with a series of late free throws. Of her 19 points, 12 of them came in the fourth quarter as Streiff had 16 points, with Petrie getting 11 points and Keiara Odune nine points.As for Jordan-Elbridge, it still was in search of its first win of the season as it took on Camden Jan. 18 and lost 55-33 to the Blue Devils. Ashlee Eaton got nine points, while Mollie Yard had seven points and Kyler Langhorn earned six points.J-E fell to Pulaski 45-33 last Tuesday as Yard this time led the way with 11 points. Then a 47-37 defeat to Canastota followed, Yard earning nine points as Eaton and Langhorn had eight points apiece, and it lost 56-47 to Camden Saturday.Solvay ran into Chittenango last Tuesday night and lost 64-38 to the Bears, who got 22 points from Sarah Lanphear. Ryleigh Bidwell had 15 points and five rebounds to pace the Bearcats as Tazz Pitts got nine points.Skaneateles was close for a quarter against Cazenovia last Thursday but was held to just eight points in the last three quarters of a 37-19 defeat in this Laker clash at Buckley Gym.Maeve Canty had seven points overall as Cazenovia’s Harvard-bound senior forward, Lindsey Lawson, had 20 points. Skaneateles fell to 4-9 overall.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Bishop Luddengirls basketballMarcellusWesthilllast_img read more

Syracuse copes with players leaving for national team play

first_imgOn the open grass at Hookway fields, Syracuse players grabbed their bags and headed out of the practice grounds. Missing from the team was sophomore midfielder Georgia Allen. She was with her other team — thousands of miles away, in England.Allen, a member of the under-20 English Women’s National Team, is among the Syracuse (5-3-2, 0-1-1 Atlantic Coast) players who return to their home country throughout the season for their respective national teams. SU head coach Phil Wheddon expects other players to leave this year, not specifying whom. But in past years, Syracuse has had Swedish, New Zealand, Canadian, and United States national team players leave SU for brief stints abroad.Wheddon said players juggling two teams at once is not uncommon. Rather, it’s a double-edged sword: It means they are talented players, but he can’t put them on the field every game.“That’s the blessing and the curse of having national-team players,” Wheddon said. “We want them to grow and develop here. To do that, you have to go to these camps.”Allen did not return from England until the night before last Thursday’s game at Wake Forest. Wheddon said the week before the game that he spoke with Allen while she was overseas. He wanted to see how travel affected her and whether she was OK to play against the Demon Deacons.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAllen, who started the previous four games, did not start the night after she landed.  She played about 32 minutes and did not record a stat. It was the only game this season she didn’t record a shot.“I don’t expect to start,” Allen said Wednesday. “I have to earn my spot again.”Allen also said she was “a little bit exhausted” from the travel. She said she assumed that, since she wasn’t practicing with the team the week before the game, she would not get her usual playing time. In her place, Syracuse rotated in four freshmen. Allen, who plays a pivotal role on both sides of the field, was limited in the Orange’s ACC opener. That opened time for the freshman to make an impact.Jessica Vigna said after the game that the freshmen group performed well. Despite the 1-0 loss, Wheddon and Vigna each think they stepped up in place of Allen and others who were dealing with nagging injuries.“Baptism by fire,” Wheddon quipped.The week before the first game this season, freshman goalkeeper Lysianne Proulx was offered a spot on the Canadian Under-20 Women’s National Team. She accepted, though Wheddon said that her being gone for a week did not bode well when it came toward winning the starting job. He said she was “basically handing the job over to senior All-ACC goalie (Courtney) Brosnan.”Leaving midway through the season like Allen does not have the same effect on strategy and substitutions, Wheddon said, because the personnel is more established than it is earlier in the season. Nonetheless, Allen appeared to have secured a starting spot, but has not started in either of the two conference games since her trip to England.Allen said she will likely make trips back once per month. Her mother said it could be as little as two weeks in between trips. And while switching time zones and missing practice time was difficult for Allen, she said the jet lag will not affect her down the road.“I’ll get used to it,” she said.Syracuse will have to as well.
