Sentinels, Lions win in Alzheimer's Awareness tournament

TICONDEROGA — Andrea Rich’s 25 points and aggressive team defense helped power the Ticonderoga over Westport 47-31 in the Alzheimer’s Awareness girls’ basketball tournament Tuesday.

The Sentinels advance to today’s final, where they’ll meet Elizabethtown-Lewis.

The rest of the team scoring for Ticonderoga was pretty balanced with all but one player recording points. Meg Campney added five points while Lexi Moore, Maura Jebb and Mckenna Kelly each added three a piece. The only player to not score for the Sentinels would be Logan Mars, but Mars’ presence was felt elsewhere.

“Even though she did not score, she made a big difference with rebounding and outlet balls, producing several opportunities for us,” Ticonderoga coach Shelly Young said.

Westport had a valiant effort from Brendee Russell, who scored 20 points. Danielle Schwoebel added another eight points, and Sarah Looby recorded three points in the losing effort.

“We have more experience this year, and it helped,” Young said. “We played aggressive defense and got out in transition.

“We only scored five points in the first quarter, and the girls were a little nervous. Our game plan started to work in the second and carried us to the end.”

Westport will play Schroon Lake in the consolation game.
