MHS girls bolt to 3-1 record

by Tom Chillemi

The Middlesex Lady Chargers varsity basketball team is off to a 3-1 start with wins over Colonial Beach, Nandua and Essex, and a 61-21 loss to Lancaster in recent action. 

The Lady Chargers started fast on Friday in a 55-23 win over Nandua. The Lady Chargers jumped to a 29-3 first quarter lead and never looked back. “It was nice to see the fire they came out with,” said Lady Charger head coach Neil Wake, “but the best part is they continued that type of play throughout. This was a true team effort, and as long as the team comes first, we will be successful.” 

Emilie Smith led Middlesex with 15 points. Sarah Walton and Ellie McMinn had 9 points each. Amber Self and Ariana Beverley added 8 points each. Lane Anderson had 4 points, and Taylor Witcher got 2 points.

Wake said he was impressed by his team’s depth.

Emilie Smith is solid in her leadership and “led as a senior should,” Wake said. 

Freshman Ellie McMinn “owned the inside.”
