The Fairmont Girl’s Varsity basketball team played Hamilton Heights, Tennessee on the last day of Journey to the Tourney at Lakota West. Hamilton Heights came in ranked #2 in the country featuring several top-ranked players according to ESPN. Both teams played extremely hard and went back and forth through-out the entire contest. The game went to OT on a Westbeld basket and the Firebirds were able to control the final 4 minutes. Madeline Westbeld led all scorers with a new Journey record at 36 points and 12 rebounds. Madison Bartley did an amazing job defending against a 6’7 elite post player and Bartley also finished with 11 points. Kierra Thorton chipped-in with 6 points and two crucial free-throws in OT. The Birds are off until the home opener on December 2nd vs Bishop Fenwick. Congratulations to our Firebirds! We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
