MONROE — All Madison High School’s girls basketball team needed was a little calm Saturday afternoon at Monroe.

The Mohawks got off to a sloppy, overanxious start in their Division III sectional opener against Deer Park, prompting MHS coach John Rossi to call a timeout midway through the first quarter with his team leading 6-2.

His players responded with a 20-2 surge from there, and the Wildcats got buried 73-26.

“Our kids were in a real hurry,” Rossi said. “We were throwing up threes. We weren’t boxing out. On the defensive end, we were usually in a bad position where we had to slap and reach for the ball.

“We had a really good week of practice coming into this,” he added. “We just needed to slow down a little bit. Once we did that, we just did what we were supposed to do.”

Josey Harding punished Deer Park inside with 17 points and 13 rebounds, sinking 8-of-10 field goals. Meghan Miller registered 16 points and seven of Madison’s 27 steals.

The top-seeded Mohawks (20-1) advance to play Reading at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at Monroe.

“Like coach says, we’re happy, but not satisfied,” said Harding, a 6-foot-2 junior. “It’s not hard to get motivated because it’s the second season. We’ve got to expect people wanting to come after us. We have to be ready for it.”

Deer Park was led by Jami Berling’s eight points and nine boards. The Wildcats (4-17) committed 39 turnovers.

“We’ve got to get better at being confident with the ball in our hands,” Deer Park coach Laura Wilder said. “Madison’s very good. We’re trying to build a program like that where you come in and expect to win every night.”

Brittany Shields tossed in nine points for the Mohawks. Olivia Philpot added six points, seven assists, four steals and three rebounds.

This is the fifth straight 20-win season for Madison.

MONROE — For the Madison High girls basketball team, it was simply a matter of letting its defense create the offense.

After a sluggish first quarter, the top-seeded Mohawks outscored Reading 16-2 in the second quarter en route to a dominating 58-25 girls Division III Sectional win Tuesday night at Monroe.

“We just don’t start start quickly,” Madison coach John Rossi said. “Our offense was kind of stagnant tonight, but our defense was championship caliber.”

Meghan Miller led the Mohawks with 16 points, including 12 in the third quarter — all on fast breaks. Brittany Shields scored 13 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, while Josey Harding and Kaylee Bush each snagged 10 rebounds.

The Mohawks (21-1) will face fifth-seeded Dayton Christian, who upset third-seeded Carlisle in the nightcap, at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Monroe for the sectional title.

The Mohawks’ pressure forced 29 turnovers and held Reading to only 10-of-39 shots from the field.

“It takes us a while to take off, but once we get our defense going, we get going,” Rossi said. “We were able to use our length and quickness to force some turnovers and get some transition baskets.”

After Reading tied the game at six early, Madison harassed the Blue Devils over the next nine minutes into 14 turnovers and 13 missed shots while building a 26-8 halftime lead.

Reading, (10-11) was led by Kelsey Lambdin’s seven points and eight rebounds. Katie Wagner added six points and five boards while Emilie Courtney snared seven rebounds.

Madison built a 52-18 lead in the fourth quarter, and Rossi put an emphasis on executing more offense in half-court sets in the final stanza.

“We have had several good practices lately so I am not sure what was wrong with the offense tonight,” Rossi said. “We are just happy to win. It’s tourney time, so we are happy to survive and advance.”

MONROE — Madison High School’s soaring girls basketball season continues.

Brittany Shields scored 21 points and Meghan Miller added 17 on Saturday afternoon as the Mohawks improved to 22-1, earning a Division III sectional championship with a 59-50 triumph over Dayton Christian at Monroe.

“You always hope this kind of season is going to happen, but it doesn’t really set in until it’s actually here,” said Madison junior Michelle Brunswick, who had nine points, four assists, four steals and three rebounds. “It’s playing as a team and trusting your teammates to do what they need to do.”

The top-seeded Mohawks didn’t have an easy time, yet did limit the Warriors (16-6) to 13 points in the middle two quarters. Madison’s smallest lead in the fourth period was nine.

The Mohawks — who shot 52.2 percent from the field — are known for their full-court pressure, but MHS coach John Rossi chose to dial it back after his team took a 31-24 edge into halftime.

“We felt like we weren’t getting anything out of the 96 feet,” Rossi said. “My coaches said, ‘Let’s make an adjustment and pick ’em up at halfcourt,’ and that’s exactly what we did. I think it saved our legs a little bit and didn’t allow us to expand our foul trouble.”

Lisa Weber led DC with 21 points and one 3-pointer. She had 35 points and six treys in the sectional semifinals against Carlisle.

“She’s quick,” said Brunswick, who drew the defensive assignment on Weber. “We just tried to shut her down on the outside and make her beat us to the rim. She still got some shots up. There were a couple times when I was wondering, ‘Man, how is she doing that?’ ”

Megan Tolson scored 13 points for the Warriors. Rebecca Kitchens had eight points and 10 rebounds.

“We went out with a lot of heart,” DC coach Paul Orme said. “You’ve got to hand it to Madison. They pressured us. They had a lot more people to sub in and out.”

Miller tallied 13 points in the second half for the Mohawks, also notching five assists and three steals. Shields dished out five assists, Josey Harding totaled seven points and 12 rebounds, and Kaylee Bush grabbed 10 boards.

“We had a couple lapses where we lost that mental capacity, but our effort was outstanding all the way through,” Rossi said.

Madison will play Summit Country Day for a district title at 3 p.m. next Saturday at Springfield.



ATTA GIRLS!
