Led by Katherine Vaughan’s dominant performance, Bedford High School opened the 2021-22 girls’ basketball season Tuesday with a 41-28 victory at Dual County League rival Wayland.
The senior controlled the offensive and defensive boards and blocked five shots, not to mention scoring 12 points.
“The girls played great, and while there’s always room for improvement, I’m happy with the direction,” said Head Coach Ashley Kepaa. “We have Waltham at home Friday at 7—we’re hoping to ‘pack the ship.’”
Junior Marina Greaney also scored a dozen points, and sophomore Mackenzie Tierney came off the bench to score nine. Her outside shots “allowed us to open up our offense,” the coach said.
“Sydney Poor and Allie Zorn were incredible from a leadership standpoint. They had great command and control of the court,” the coach added. She also praised the defensive effort and noted how the team entered the fourth quarter with eight (8) team fouls and “had to play extremely smart” to stay out of the double bonus.
