On Friday, December 6, the Centennial girls’ basketball team hosted Marriotts Ridge to kick off the regular season. Unfortunately, the Eagles were defeated by a final score of 51-28. 

The offensive struggles began during the beginning of the second and third quarters when Centennial only scored a combined five points.

Despite being down 18 points at the start of the fourth quarter, the girls fought until the end. Senior Brook Anderson was the only Centennial player to score in the fourth quarter with three three-pointers. She finished the game with 15 points.

Centennial will look to capture their first win on Wednesday, December 11, where they take on top-rival Mount Hebron.
