St. David’s is 2-0 in EPIC action and 4-3 overall. “This was a big win for us tonight,” said coach Alan Hinnant. “We were missing two players, but Julia Hensley stepped up at and did everything a point guard is supposed to do. She ran the offensive, distributed the ball and was aggressive. Our defense was consistently good as well.” Karis New and Claire Monaco led the balanced scoring with 12 points each. Lexi Medlin had 10 and Hensley added eight.

The Warriors opened EPIC play with a 40-27 victory at Carolina Friends Friday night. Both teams started slowly and St. David’s led 12-11 at halftime. In the second half, SDS used their press to create turnovers, which led to easy baskets. “Our press worked well,” said coach Alan Hinnant, whose team is 3-3. “The pace was too slow in the first half, so we used our trap to speed up the game. Everyone contributed and it was nice to see Ashley Baucom score her first basket.” Lexi Medlin and Karis New led the scoring with 11 points each. The Warriors are back home Tuesday against Trinity Academy of Raleigh.
