Lady Pirates’ Basketball Season Finishes

Peyton Peters, Staff Writer

The Pirate women’s basketball team is off to a strong 4-3 start with a 76-13 win in the first game of the season against Smith. Then, the Pirates took on the Dudley Panthers on January 11 resulting in a 62-35 road loss, but the team bounced back the next day with a tight 45-43 win at Uwharrie Charter Academy. Closing out the week on Friday, Dudley came to the Mac and took a 65-40 win over our Pirates. Page played two tough home games against Providence Grove on January 21 coming away with a 62-35 win but suffering a heartbreaking 54-46 loss to the Northwest Guilford Vikings in the conference opener. This week, our Lady Pirates got their first conference win against High point Central on the road 76-27 and will head to Westover Terrace to face rival Grimsley on Friday. We wish our team the best of luck!

Our Lady Pirate’s came away with the 42-35 rivalry win at Grimsley last week! Scoring for the Pirates was led by seniors Reagan Maynard with 12 points and Meredith Fennie with 10. When asked how it feels playing against their archrival, Fennie said “Playing against Grimsley is always an exciting game to be a part of. Coming into the game, the team was very focused and wanted to make a statement.” The double-digit win did in fact make a statement. The Pirates’ next game is a home conference contest against Ragsdale on February 2. Last week, the Pirate’s women’s team suffered two losses to admirable opponents. Ragsdale came away with the 42-34 win over Page, and then undefeated Clover Grove made the trip from Burlington and won 51-41. This week will also be a challenge as our team seeks revenge on Tuesday against undefeated Northwest and then High Point Central at the Mac on Friday. Good luck, Pirates!

 

The women’s basketball team struggled in a loss to Northwest Guilford 55-21 but came on strong against High Point Central with the big 61-19 win over the Bison. When asked how much this season mean to Senior Leilla Hamoud, she had this to say: “Being able to play basketball my senior year of high school was really a blessing with everything going on. This season wasn’t promised, so getting half the season was luck. It was a great experience that I’ll forever be thankful for because I couldn’t imagine last season being the last time I touched the court.”

Last week our squad wrapped up the season with a 63-28 win over Grimsley and a 55-29 loss to Ragsdale. With a 7-7 season record, the Pirates did not make the NCHSAA playoffs. This was still a great season. Thank you to seniors Leila Hamoud, Meredith Fennie, Reagan Maynard, Ellie Jones, and Amiya Martin on great careers at Page.
