EHS Girls Basketball Seeking Elusive 10th
After coming up short in its lone contest last week at Haverhill, the Everett High girls basketball team was seeking to punch their ticket for a Journey to the Tourney when the Lady Crimson Tide took on Greater Boston League rival Revere last night (Tuesday).
Everett opened its season with a 7-0 record, but has split its past four contests. The Lady Crimson Tide now stand at 9-2 and need one more victory to qualify for the MIAA post-season state tournament to assure themselves of a .500 record, which is the minimum mark needed to play in the post-season.
After the contest wth Greater Boston League rival Revere, coach Tammy Turner and her crew will take on another GBL foe, Medford, tomorrow (Thursday) evening.
They then will entertain GBL opponent Malden next Tuesday at 7 p.m. Turner’s squad stands at 4-0 in the GBL and defeated all three of those GBL rivals this week in their initial meetings earlier this season.
Victories in all three of those encounters will ensure at least a GBL co-championship for Everett.
