Feb 15, 2009
Wilmington closed the campaign with three straight wins by knocking off playoff-bound Sharpsville in a District 10, Region 2-AA matchup.

The Lady Greyhounds (3-9 region, 9-13 overall) altered the playoffs down the stretch, eliminating Mercer with a win on Thursday.

“I want to thank my team for their hard work,” Wilmington coach Brian Turk said. “Our record doesn’t show they are a competitive team, but I believe we are.

“We ended the season the way we wanted to, on a strong note. I’m looking forward to a strong season next year.”

Wilmington built a 42-41 advantage after three quarters and held on for the win. The Lady Greyhounds were 13 of 16 from the foul line, including 10 of 11 at the stripe in the second half.

“It paid off for us to put our foul shots in the hole,” Turk said. “We got a great effort from everyone.”

Julie Burns netted 14 points for Wilmington and Stephanie Kish was next with 12.

Miranda Summers paced all scorers with 22 markers for the Blue Darlings (6-6, 15-7). Sharpsville struggled at the foul line, converting 17 shots in 29 attempts.
