St. Paul Courtney Hoag scored 20 points and pulled down seven rebounds, and Alexa Gaumer had 16 points and seven assists, but Seabury’s girls basketball team fell to Waverly, 64-49, on Saturday night in a Class 1A sub-state final.
The Seahawks trailed 33-18 at halftime but played Waverly even, 31-31, in the second half.
“It was sort of a frenetic pace,” Seabury coach Becky Bridson said. “It was kind of hard for us to get into any kind of flow. I think we were nervous. This is our first postseason in four years. I felt like our kids fought hard and never gave up.”
Reilly Malone added nine points and four steals for Seabury, which finished 10-8.
“We had a historical season, a record-breaking season,” Bridson said. “We had our first winning season, and all kinds of team records and individual records were set this year. We had a ton of talent, and they jelled really well and grew a lot together and improved every day in practice. We had a lot of fun.”
