The success of the high school girls basketball programs at North Adams High School has become a given each season and the 2015-16 season is no exception. While Coach Rob Davis and his varsity Lady Devils cruise along at 11-2, the JV Lady Devils under Coach Tony Williams have put together a 10-3 record.
In the win over Fayetteville, the Lady Devils were led by 10 points from Brooklyn Stout, with Brooklyn Wylie adding 9, McKayla Raines 8, and Madee Shipley 7.
“We had another rough first quarter where we were getting the shots that we wanted, we weren’t able to finish,” said Coach Williams. “In the second, The Brooklyn’s (Stout and Wylie) really gave us a lift by knocking down some shots. Charlee Louden does a great job of causing problems at the top of our pressure, and Allison Harper and Madee are doing a much better job of reading passing lanes.”
“Our defense is a success because it is an entire team effort. On offense we are doing a great job of finding people and getting easy shots. I’m very proud of the progress this team has made.”
The JV Lady Devils came back on Saturday, Jan. 9 to post another win, easily handling Portsmouth West by a final score of 43-16 for their tenth win of the season. They were back in action on Thursday, Jan. 14 when they traveled to Manchester to face the lady Hounds.
