Railroader girls wrap up basketball season

A tough season for the Whitehall girls basketball team came to an end last week with losses to Fort Ann and Bolton.

On Tuesday the girls hosted a strong Fort Ann team that entered the contest with a 13-1 mark. And despite giving Fort Ann everything it could handle for one half, the girls fell 61-35.

Three Cardinals scored reach double digit points, led by Kayla Prosser with 17 points and Casey Batchelder with 16 points.

Kelsey Farley led Whitehall with 10 points while Ashleigh Davis scored eight points.

Whitehall played stout defense in the first half, limited Fort Ann to 22 points, and trailed by only two points at half time. But the Cardinals came to life in the third quarter, outscoring Whitehall 24-6. Whitehall rebounded with a strong final quarter, but was unable to overcome the deficit.

The following night, Whitehall hosted Bolton and once again faded down the stretch.

On this occasion, Whitehall went into the half leading by two points but was outscored 28-11 in the second half in a 38-23 loss.

Sarah Calzada led the Eagles with 16 points. Farley scored a game-high 10 points for Whitehall.

Whitehall was held to single digit scoring in all four quarters, including four in the first and five in the fourth.

The team finishes the season with a 2-14 record. Although the team will be affected by a number of losses due to graduation, several key players return including starting point guard Brooke Paddock and reserves Caitlyn Sandford, Rachel Lavin, Shelby Keane, Amber Eggleston and Mallory Keough.

The team will be recognized during an awards banquet on Feb. 26.
