The ACGC girls basketball team entered the first round of postseason play against a familiar foe as they squared off against the Southwest Valley Timberwolves in Corning Saturday evening. Unfortunately for the gold and black, they couldn’t secure a victory in back to back meetings with the Timberwolves. ACGC’s season ends in heartbreak with a 38-40 defeat.
Senior Jadeyn Carrick led all scores with 14. The senior knew the team gave it their best shot at grabbing their first postseason victory in program history. “I’m very impressed with how we’ve played this season. I’m very proud of us. Tonight I thought we could have done like we did in the past, just stop being the team that we want to be. Just give up, fold, and just throw in the towel. But we fought back hard, and we had determination in our eyes to win this, and fell short a little.”
Carrick finishes her ACGC basketball career with the single-game, single-season, and career scoring records for the Chargers. Head Coach Dan Baker also shared his thoughts on the conclusion to the season. “We’ve just had such ups and downs here since Christmas time. I’m not without fault either. I know that I haven’t done everything exactly right (in) trying to know the kids and what their capabilities are, but we’ve had some great games. The kids fought and came back. They had a chance to fold and they didn’t. I’m very proud of them.”
The Chargers conclude their season at 9-13.
