Triad falls to SCC

NORTH LEWISBURG – Triad, despite playing its best game of the season, came up short in a 50-44 loss to Springfield Catholic Central in OHC girls basketball.

“I can’t say enough for our girls,” said Triad Coach Jeff Merklin. “They weren’t intimidated at all, played our game, and had several chances to win it at the end. Springfield Catholic did a great job shutting down our top scorers, Cati and Frani LeVan, but the other girls stepped up, and that’s what a team sport is about.”

Kris Bailey led Triad with 18 points – including four treys. Bailey also led Triad with 8 rebounds and dished out 3 assists.

“You can’t play a more well rounded game of basketball than Kris did tonight,” said Merklin.

Makenzie Cauley had 10 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocked shots for Triad (7-8, 3-7).

Weather permitting, the Cardinals play at Fairbanks on Saturday afternoon.
