Summer basketball is winding down as the month of June fades away and local teams that have participated have gotten a jump start on the 2016-17 campaign. One of those team is the North Adams Lady Devils, who have been in action in numerous venues this summer, including a MondayWednesday night summer league.

That summer league saw them travel on June 22 to Eastern Brown High School, joining the host Lady Warriors, the Fairfield Lady Lions, and the Hillsboro Lady Indians as the evening’s quartet of competition.

In their opening battle of the evening, the Lady Devils faced off with another member of the Southern Hills Athletic conference in Fairfield. With Coach Rob Davis using a lot of different combinations of players throughout the two 20-minute halves, a basket by Avery Harper gave North Adams a 35-34 advantage with 15 seconds to play. Fairfield ended up with the ball under its own basket with just one tick left on the clock and the out of bounds play for the Lady Lions resulted in a basket off the baseline at the buzzer for a 36-35 win.

After their opener was played in the Eastern Junior High gymnasium, the Lady Devils moved across to the high school facility to face off with the host Lady Warriors. The game was back and forth and close all the way, with Eastern beginning to pull away late. Down by 10, a three-pointer by Taylor Hesler made it 36-26 in favor of Eastern and a later basket and free throw by Lakyn Hupp pulled the Lady Devils within 37-34 with 26 seconds remaining. An Eastern turnover gave North Adams a shot to tie but a Hupp three was off the mark and an ensuing pair of free throws by Allison Day secured the 39-34 win for the Lady Warriors.

The summer league concluded on Monday, June 27 with the Lady Devils traveling to Whiteoak for the final night of action.
