Things looked dicey early, as Senior Colleen Marshall picked up two quick fouls and the Lady Pumas claimed a 16-14 lead after the first quarter. But, the Lady Trojans’ inside duo of Jackson and Sophomore Janessa Fauntroy began to flex their muscle in the second quarter, and Gaithersburg surged to a 25-22 halftime lead.
The third quarter was vintage Gaithersburg, as the Lady Trojans picked up the pace and the intensity, outscoring Wise 18-5 to take a commanding 43-27 lead. The Lady Trojans cruised to the 60-43 win, as Senior Octavia Scott made several baskets in the paint in her best effort of the season. Jackson led the Lady Trojans with 28 points.
Head Coach Adrian “Hot Dog” McDaniel and the Lady Trojans were jubilant as they hoisted another championship trophy. Congratulations to all of the Lady Trojans!
