CINCINNATI GIRLS BASKETBALL ROUNDUP


Fenwick shoots down No. 2 seed Summit

        Middletown Fenwick registered the first upset of the Cincinnati Division IV sectional tournament Thursday, knocking off No. 2 seed Summit Country Day 46-32 at Madeira.

        The run by Fenwick was started when Emily Sauers sank a three-point field goal and continued into the third quarter when the Falcons outscored the Silver Knights 16-6.

        “We went to a zone defense in the third quarter, which was effective,” Rossi said.
