After losing their first game of the season to Rockdale County in overtime on Monday, the Bradwell Institute Lady Tigers regrouped and battled Riverdale’s Lady Raiders on Tuesday,
taking a 62-47 win on the final day of the Great Southern Shootout at Westside Macon High School.
The victory put Bradwell among the top three teams in their round robin division for the tournament. Lady Tiger Mariah Maternik was named to the All-Tournament Team.
The girls were neck-and-neck early in the game, closing the
first quarter tied at 10. But, according to Lady Tiger coach Faye Baker, Maternik sank 26 points and had nine assists and Seandre Lee earned a double-double with 26 points 19 rebounds, helping her squad gain an edge in the third and fourth quarters for a win.
Baker said Camille Jackson played well defensively and the victory was an overall team effort.
The girls will take a Christmas break, but they’ll be back at practice Monday as they prepare to play Long County High School in Ludowici on Jan. 2. The following Tuesday, Bradwell faces region opponent Savannah High.
