EHS Girls Barrel Into Tourney With Win Over Lawrence

The Everett High girls basketball team achieved the Holy Grail that every high school program seeks at the start of the season when coach Riley Dunn and her crew defeated Lawrence last Monday, 55-46, to guarantee the .500 record that is required to punch a ticket for a Journey to the Tourney.

The Lady Crimson Tide were paced by the duo of Malaica Guillaume (13 points, 11 rebounds) and Nehemie Lucien (10 points, 10 rebounds), both of whom achieved powerful double-doubles.

“Malaica and Nehemie were all over the boards,” noted Dunn.

Captain Kaylee.Rossi led Everett in the scoring department with 17 points and also dished out four assists.

“This was a team win,” said Dunn. “I’m very proud of these girls for stepping up, playing with confidence, and refusing to lose. Here we come, playoffs!”

Although the Tide dropped their final regular season contest of the year to Lowell two nights later, Dunn saw some positives.

“It was a tough loss against a solid Lowell team and only made us better-prepared for the playoffs,” said Dunn.

Guillaume had 10 points in the loss.

Dunn and her squad, who finished with a 10-10 record, were ranked 40th in the Division 1 playoff bracket. They were scheduled to travel to 25th-ranked Weymouth (11-9) last night (Tuesday) for a preliminary round game. The winner will move onto the round of 32 and travel to eighth-ranked No. Andover (14-6) Friday evening at 5:30.
