The Maharishi school Varsity Girls basketball
team put up a good fight against an excellent shooting team from
Burlington's Notre Dame. The final score was 47 to 35 for Notre Dame,
however the Pioneers actually out scored its opponent in 3 of the 4
quarters. The Pioneers were up 10 to 6 at the end of the first quarter,
having scored 6 unanswered points but Notre Dame hit a desperate 3 pointer
with no time left on the clock. The Pioneers were then out scored by 16
points in the second quarter, where early season fatigue allowed Notre
Dame to take advantage. Coach Higgins however, was pleased with the play
of his team and was busily studying the game tape the next morning to make
the necessary adjustments for his next match which will be Friday,
Taylor Ross led the
Pioneers with a career high 18 points including a spectacular over the
shoulder running lay-up. Amellia Schuldt continued her steady play with 10
points. The Pioneer record is now 1 and 1.
