Lizzy Stevenson took home the tournament’s most outstanding player award and Hannah McCarthy was selected to the all-tournament team.
Grade seven girls
The Bedford seventh-grade travel team rallied from a sluggish first half to a 29-18 victory over the Goffstown squad on Sunday. Ella Natale and Ava Gaudette paced a smothering defense while Torrance Ayotte, Emma Rosenbaum and Alli Morgan sparked the offense. Zoe Michaud was the game MVP with her all-around performance and key playcalling.
Grade three girls
Bedford celebrated a hard-fought victory over Brookline 23-20. Taylor Guibord and Sophia Douglas directed the plays with crisp, clean passes. Kamryn Schmitt played attentive defense and excelled all around with rebounds, shooting and heads-up play. Lana McCarthy played assertive defense and scored 15 points, Sophia Legoullan had four points and Gibourd and Schmitt each scored two.
Grade five/six girls
The Bedford girls notched another win with a 36-6 win against Amherst on Saturday. Marie Hamill led the scoring with 11 points, followed by Nitya Upadrasta with six. The entire team played excellent defense, creating many turnovers, and limiting Amherst’s baskets in the paint. The guards, Caity Lemay, Skyler DePetrillo, Mary Provost and Grace Chopra, also did a great job protecting the ball and running the offense.
