Watkins girls claim large schools south crown

WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins Glen girls varsity basketball team claimed the Interscholastic Athletic Conference (IAC) large schools south crown, by defeating Odessa-Montour, Tuesday, Feb. 8.
The final score was 52-45.  By half-time, Odessa was ahead by two points and at the end of the third quarter had a 39-34 lead.  Watkins closed the point gap in the final quarter and won.
Marissa Pike led the Senecas with 22 points.  She also had seven rebounds and four assists.  Taylor Chaffee had 12 points and led in all other categories: 12 rebounds, three steals, seven assists, and four blocks.
Angela Keough was next with 10 points.  Chelsea Lehman had six points and Haley Tuttle had two.
For Odessa, Katie Ray scored 14 points.  Taylor Carey had 11 points and 12 rebounds.  Allison Stamp was next with eight points.  Michelle Melanson had six, Jocelyn Garrison scored four, and Jessica Rhodes had two.
"We executed our defensive game plan to perfection, holding Taylor Chaffee to just 12 points," said Odessa Coach Greg Gavich.  "But they hit some open shots, and banked a couple in here and there.  Marissa Pike really hurt us, scoring 10 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter.”
Watkins will be competing in the IAC championship game against Lansing, large schools north champion, Thursday, Feb. 17.  The game will be held at Tompkins Cortland Community College.
