The Bedford fourth grade girls travel team entered the 2015 Bedford basketball jamboree looking to make a statement, and it did just that, walking away with the championship trophy! The girls executed a total team effort, as Bedford was the top team in both scoring and fewest points allowed, winning all games by a comfortable margin.

Led by strong play on the blocks by tournament MVP Lana McCarthy, Sophia LeGoullon, Devlyn McDonald and Becca Mello, the ladies kept the clock operators busy adding points at a frantic pace. Point Guards Sophia Douglas and Libby Norris distributed the ball with precision and Megan Muir went strong to the hoop the entire tournament. Kaelyn O’Neill was a force on both sides of the ball, while Kamryn Schmitt and Taylor Guibord played suffocating defense that forced multiple turnovers.

Fifth grade

The fifth grade Bedford girls capped an undefeated run in the BBL jamboree by beating Merrimack 20-10 in the finals on Sunday. Sydney Grogan led Bedford with 13 points and was named the tournament MVP. Ally Garron added three points, while Olivia King and Sam Avampato each had two points in the victory. The girls played aggressive team defense and made key steals and rebounds with the game on the line to seal the victory and the tournament for the second year in a row.

Sixth grade

Caleigh O’Connell had a pair of key drives to the hoop to lead the Bedford team to a tie in the first half of semi-final play against Londonderry. She and her teammates turned up the heat on both ends of the court to outscore their opponent 18-6 during the second half, eventually cruising to a 31-19 victory. Fiona Gillis led the team with 13 rebounds, and 6 points; Kayla Ware added six points while coming up with four big steals.

In the championship game on Sunday, Julian Bell was fantastic in getting past the tough Merrimack press, while doing her part to frustrate their guards on the other end of the court. Saphia Mumpini had a couple of great offensive rebounds that she converted to baskets, Julia Giroux hit a sweet 3-pointer late in the second half and Catherine Penick came down with some big rebounds near the end of the game. But it wasn’t quite enough to hold off Merrimack and the Bedford fell just short, 22-20.

Both ‘Connell and Gillis were selected to the all-tournament team for their division in the jamboree.
