Fun Times and Big Wins @ NIT

Posted by John Wilson on 2/17/2022

Both the boys and girls basketball teams advanced to the secound round of the Northfield Invitational Tournament.

The girls basketball team defeated Assumption 40 - 16 and will advance to Wednesday's semifinal game against Absecon. Addie Pepper and Maddie Taylor sparked the T'birds defense as they forced many turnovers for Assumption. Laura Livington and Jade O'Neil led the T'Birds to victory with a combined 25 points while Sammy Funk contributed 5 points.  

The boys basketball team took down Somers Point 54-18, ignited by Luke Kerrigan who came off the bench on fire hitting 4 three pointers on way to a game high 16 points. With the team up big and lots of game left, young guns AJ Goukler and Matt Borini came in and grew the lead against the Jaguars varsity team. Next up for the T'Birds is a matchup against Margate on Wednesday the 23rd at 6:45. 

The teams were cheered on by a fantastic student section. We hope you will join in the fun during our games next week!
