The Wheatridge Middle School 7th grade girls basketball team grabbed their 2nd win of the year last night, 31-30, in a thriller on the road against the Cardinals of Eudora Middle School.
Point guard Hannah Phipps led the way with 22 points, while posts Aaliyah Green and Ellie Parks recorded 7 and 2 points, respectively.
The teams switched the lead several times until the Mustangs’ defense was able to shut down Eudora’s offense in the third quarter, allowing the offense to put some distance between Wheatridge and the home team. Wheatridge was able to withstand a late Cardinals’ rally to preserve the win.
