Big Fourth Quarter Powers GA Past Warriors

PHILADELPHIA — So far this year, the Germantown Academy girls basketball team has beaten teams from Pennsylvania and California on their way to an 11-3 overall record. On Jan. 7, they added a team from Delaware to that list.

The Patriots took on Sanford School in the Blue Star Classic and proved to be too much to handle. GA defeated the Warriors — who are the No. 1 ranked team in Delaware — by a score of 61-56.

Three different players scored in double figures for Germantown Academy, with Elle Stauffer ’20 led all scorers with 18 points. The sophomore added seven rebounds and was also named Player of the Game. Jaye Haynes ’20 chipped in 16 points and six rebounds, while Alexa Naessens ’18 added 14 points and seven rebounds.

While those three handled the scoring, it was Catherine Polisano ’18 that got them the ball. Polisano tallied five assists to go along with six points and six rebounds.

The Patriots would need all of those points, as they found themselves trailing Sanford, 49-43, entering the final quarter of play. However, a huge fourth quarter in which GA outscored the Warriors 18-7 flipped the outcome and gave Germantown Academy it’s 11th win of the year.

Germantown Academy will be back on the court, albeit on the road, on Jan. 9 when they take on The Baldwin School at 4:00 p.m.
