The Golden Bear hoops’ squads got the 2019-2020 seasons off and running last night on the road at Brookwood, and with mixed results. The girls left with a 56-37 win.
The girls will be at Pace to take on Marietta High School this Saturday.
Coach Nichole Dixon & company picked up where they left off last year after their state championship season, winning with balance as many factored in the stat sheet.
Two scored in double figures – Rachel Suttle led with 12 points; Jada Farrell followed with 10. Going down the line, Charlsie Birkel and Jillian Hollingshead both had eight, Naja Reeves and Logan Jackson each added six, Olivia Hutcherson pitched in four, and Omari Foote had two.
Hollingshead led the boards, pulling 12 rebounds to go with her eight assists and three blocked shots; Reeves passed off for four assists, Suttle grabbed seven boards, and Hutcherson blocked two shots and had two steals. -James Dunn
