Kaesta Sandy topped the scoring chart with 12 points while also pulling down six rebounds. Emilia Maria Babcock reached double figures with 10 points and made seven steals and Casey Martinez chipped in nine points and made six had steals.

“We are 1-1,” said Dunn. “I’m excited about this team and this season. We got off to a slow start, but I think we can be great defensively. We have quick guards and a well rounded post crew as well. Emilia Maria Babcock will be an integral leader this year for our team, using her two years of experience and just great energy and hustle to keep this team ready and hungry.”

Dunn and her crew, who faced Lynn Classical this past Monday, will host Lynn English tomorrow (Thursday) with the opening tip set for 7:00.

“We’ll be looking to go 2-0 and protect our home court going into Christmas break,” noted Dunn, whose squad dropped a 44-22 decision to Malden in their season-opener last Tuesday.

“The girls played tough and hustled the entire game,” said Dunn. “It was a tough loss, but we bounced back against Chelsea.” Emilia Maria-Babcock hit for 10 points and pulled down six boards.
