It was only a preseason exhibition game but still an impressive outing for Coach Rob Davis and his North Adams Lady Devils as they crossed county lines on Nov. 11 to tangle with the Georgetown Lady G-Men in the annual OHSAA Foundation game between the two schools. Behind a 25-point effort from junior Avery Harper, the Lady Devils raced to a commanding first quarter lead and never looked back as they rolled past Georgetown by a final count of 73-23.
“I was pleased with our effort and energy tonight,” said Coach Davis after the exhibition.  “I didn’t know what to expect the first time out but I thought we took advantage of our pressure and our height advantage against them.  They have to all be happy with however many minutes they get, it might be different every game depending on the situation.  We are all in it together.”
“We have a lot of interchangeable parts and I’m excited about the season.”
A Foundation Game is played just as a regular season game, four eight minute quarters, and the Lady Devils took control early, using a pair of three-pointers from Grace McDowell and three buckets by Harper to grab a 16-2 advantage.  With Georgetown head coach Bernie Cropper substituting five players at a time and Coach Davis using 11 girls, the first quarter onslaught by North Adams continued with a Madee Shipley three-pointer, plus baskets by Lakyn Hupp, Brooklyn Young, and Charlee Louden that gave the visitors a 28-4 lead after eight minutes of play.
A McDowell trey opened the second period and a later perfect pass from Taylor Hesler to Caitlin Young for a score finished a 7-0 run for the Lady Devils. By halftime, the North Adams girls had stretched the margin out to 44-11.
In the third quarter, Coach Davis used his starters for about half the time and with the big lead, play got a little sloppier and the Lady Devils spent a lot of time at the free throw line, with Madison Jenkins hitting 4 of 6 as her squad led 56-19 after three.
Substituting freely in the final eight minutes, the Lady Devils got points from seven different players, including a Hesler three and buckets from Maddie Toole and Brooklyn Stout, and their first outing of the preseason against outside competition was a successful one, finishing the night with a 50-point victory, 73-23.
Harper led all scorers with her 25 points, 10 field goals and a perfect 5 for 5 from the foul line.  McDowell also reached double figures with 11, including her trio of three-point goals.  Eleven different players dented the scoring column for the Lady Devils in the win.  Jenkins led the squad with 9 rebounds, Hesler with 5 assists, and Toole with 5 steals.
