BRUNSWICK — The Mt. Ararat Middle School eighthgrade girls basketball team slipped past rival Brunswick, 30-23, on Thursday.

The Eagles (2-9) saved their best game for last, fighting back and forth with the Huskies all night.

Alyssa Kidd showed off her strong post presence, and Sara Lamb scored nine points to lead the Mt. Ararat offense. Sara Eggleston put everything together and was a force on both ends, adding seven points, with Erin Tome playing suffocating defense and adding in five points.

Brianna “Megz” Hamilton and Tabbi Parr both held the line on an unyielding defensive effort.
