JV Lady Devils win McDonald’s Classic, defeat West Union in finals

Making it a clean sweep of the 2015 McDonald’s Classic JV championships, the North Adams Lady Devils JV squad picked up their championship trophy on Dec. 30 with an impressive 41-21 win over West Union in the Classic finals, played on the court at West Union High School.

“We are very excited to win the McDonald’s Holiday Classic,” said North Adams JV girls coach Tony Williams. “The Gallowitz family does a great job in providing a first-class event for the teams of Adams County. We greatly appreciate all that they do.”

In the JV title game, the first quarter was dead even as both teams scored 9 points. The Lady Dragons got baskets from Sianna Mills, Ashley Reed, and Haley Daniels, while North Adams got a three-point bucket from Madee Shipley. That 9-point first quarter turned out to be the high point of the day for the West Union girls as they put up a goose egg in the second period.

While they were pitching the seven-minute shutout on the defensive end, the Lady Devils racked up 13 points on their offensive end, led by three-point goals by Adison Wright and Brooklyn Stout and baskets by Charlee Louden and Allison Harper. By halftime, North Adams was comfortably in front by a score of 22-9.

“We started out playing with a little case of nerves and we missed some early opportunities,” said Coach Williams. “Then our half-court pressure was able to cause some turnovers and we began to attack the basket more instead of settling for jump shots.”

In the third quarter, the Lady Devils repeated their second quarter performance with a 13-point output, getting another Wright three-point goal and two baskets each from Shipley and Brooklyn Wylie. West Union got a trey from Kaley Daniels but still found themselves on the short end of a 35-16 score heading into the final period.

The final seven minutes of the JV title contest saw the Lady Devils outscore West Union 6-5 as they claimed the McDonald’s classic championship with the 41-21 victory.

“I was very pleased with everyone’s effort today,” said Williams. “One of our main goals this season was to win the McDonald’s Classic and I am very proud of our girls for accomplishing this goal.”

“The only real downfall of the day was our free throw shooting (11-23). We must improve in that area and strive to be in the 70% range as a team.”

Eight players dented the scoring column for North Adams in the win, led by 9 points each from Brooklyn Wylie and Madee Shipley. Adison Wright and Brooklyn Stout each added 6, with Allison Harper scoring 4.

West Union was led by 7 points from Ashley Reed and 5 from Kaley Daniels.
