Apopka Memorial Middle School Girls win Orange County Basketball Championship!

Seahawks rout Avalon 50-22

Posted

It was a perfect 10 kind of year for the Apopka Memorial Middle School Seahawks Girls' basketball team.

The Seahawks took care of business in overwhelming style Thursday night when they routed the Avalon Middle School Huskies of Orlando 50-22 to capture the Orange County Championship and put an exclamation point on an undefeated 10-0 season!

The championship game was played at Wekiva High School.

On Monday, February 28th, Apopka Memorial rallied past the Timber Springs Middle School Wolverines of Orlando 42-39 in overtime of the semifinals to advance to the county championship game. The Seahawks trailed by as many as 10 points in the final period.

But in the championship game against Avalon, Apopka Memorial never trailed and was in command from start to finish.

After a modest 11-10 lead in the first quarter, the Seahawks blew the game wide open, outscoring the Huskies 13-1 to take a 24-11 lead into halftime. Then in the second half, the Seahawks continued to pour it on, scoring another 26 points.

Erin Griffin, the only eighth-grader on the team, led the Seahawks with 18 points, followed by seventh-grader Jakayla Johnson with 10 points and sixth-grader Aubrey Griffin with nine points.

Coaches Anthony Picone, Fred Griffin, Jaquan Shaw, Johnny Simmons, and Athletic Director Mel Bolden Jr. guided the girls to a successful campaign that ended with a championship trophy.
 
Congratulations Seahawks on a great season!
