The RB girls basketball team closed last season winning 10 of 14 games, and perhaps more importantly, gained valuable measures of varsity experience and confidence. The senior-laden Lady Bulldogs haven’t skipped a beat so far this season, illustrated by their three wins last week to win the VandeMerkt Thanksgiving Classic.
RB (4-0) opened the three-day event in impressive fashion with a 61-34 win over Mount Assisi. Meghan Orgler scored 15 points and Elena Duve added 11 points to pace the Bulldogs. The duo combined for 27 points in RB’s 61-55 victory over Morton in Game 2.
RB completed its perfect week by edging Nazareth 45-41 on Saturday. Orgler (18 points, 5 rebounds, 4 steals) and Duve (15 points, 5 rebounds) led the Lady Bulldogs.
