The Ursuline Bears were victorious Monday night over Old Colony.
As the higher ranked seed, we were given a “home-court advantage." Since our tiny gym is too small to host a tournament crowd, Old Colony and the Bears traveled to Xaverian High School in Westwood. Despite the court being unfamiliar to both teams, it felt like home; the gym was stuffed with noisy green and white fans. It was awesome!
We warmed up aggressively and stepped onto the court confident and ready to go. Within the first few plays, it was obvious Old Colony couldn’t handle us. We took them in three quick games. Everyone contributed and played really well. Varsity newcomer, freshman Jill Lawlor, took advantage of joining the varsity team for the tournament and pounded down many aces.
We travel to play second-seeded Holbrook Wednesday night in a Division 3 South semifinal. We had a great practice Tuesday and we are ready to perform. I should apologize to my teachers ahead of time... school will probably be the last thing on my mind today.
