Lauren Schetter scored a career-high 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Beacon High School girls basketball team in a 52-44 loss to visiting Ardsley on Monday.
“She had a great game,” Beacon coach Christina Dahl said. “As an eighth-grader, she comes on the court and plays hard, disciplined basketball. She comes out ready to compete and she was successful in doing so (Monday).”
Talah Hughes contributed 15 points and 10 rebounds for Beacon (10-6), which trailed, 36-33, after three quarters.
“We stayed with them,” Dahl said. “Down the stretch, we needed to make some of our offensive opportunities. Against any good team, you have to finish your opportunities, and we didn’t do that well (Monday).”
The Bulldogs will close out the regular season with tonight’s home game against Our Lady of Lourdes and Thursday’s road game at John Jay. Lourdes and John Jay are among the top teams in Dutchess County.
“We’re going to compete,” Dahl said. “We look forward to the challenge. They’ll present us with good games before sectionals, and that’s what we need.”
