Girls hit stride at Spring-Ford tourney

Thursday, January 3, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

The Parkland girls basketball team continued its strong play over the winter break, winning all three games it played in the Spring-Ford Holiday Classic.

The Trojan girls topped Downingtown West (60-51) to open the tournament and followed that with a pair of relatively easy wins against Daniel Boone (63-16) and Great Valley (60-31).

After averaging just over 41 points in their first five of the season, the girls began to find an offensive flow, going for 60 or more in all three wins.
