BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA 9) — The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Lady Barons defeated Blair 56-41 on Friday to advance to the 4A West region quarterfinals.
“It was a great team win. Everybody contributed, there was a lot of energy in the gym [and] the girls were just amped up,” said Head Coach Ryan Ingalls. “We executed our game plan … we wanted to attack on the offensive end and move the ball around … and finish when we got to the free throw line.”
The Barons defeated Blair twice during the regular season and were leading 48-22 by the end of the third quarter. Bethesda-Chevy Chase senior guard Mariama Tunkara led her team in scoring with 18 points.

In the fourth quarter, Blair rallied and put 19 points on the board, nine of which came from three three-pointers by junior Camille Estrin.
Despite the Blazers’ late comeback, the Barons were able to slow down and maintain their lead to win the game. On Monday, Bethesda-Chevy Chase will travel to Walt Whitman to face the Vikings, the number one seeded team in the 4A West.
