High school girls’ basketball: St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy edges Grace Prep

Aubrey Weiss made four free throws in the final minutes to lift St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy to a 37-36 triumph over Grace Prep on Monday.

The Lady Wolves (2-17) rallied from a six-point deficit after three quarters by holding Grace Prep to no field goals in the final period. The Lady Storm went 6 for 16 from the line.

Weiss’ two free throws with about 11/2 minutes remaining closed the deficit to 36-35 and two more with about 10 seconds remaining made the difference.

“It was a great battle by both teams,” St. Joseph’s coach Brenna O’Connor said. “It was a shame someone had to lose.”

Weiss led the Lady Wolves with 14 points, while Bella Bassett added nine. Ellie Seibel had 17 points and Maddie Fye netted 11 for Grace Prep.
