Fenwick girls basketball went 0-3 in the Junior Orange Bowl Classic in Miami over the holidays. Read more from George M. Wilcox on High School Cube News.
Fenwick has received invitations the past few years to play in the Junior Orange Bowl Classic in Miami over the holidays.
Coach Dave Power finally took the organizers up on their offer. But with Creighton-bound guard Jade Owens still hobbled by an ankle injury, Fenwick (7-12) experienced less success in Miami than anticipated. The Friars went 0-3 during the second of its two holiday tournaments, finishing with a 69-52 loss to Miami Ferguson on Dec. 30 in its finale.
Fenwick’s first game in Miami was a 78-40 loss to eventual tournament champion Nova, followed by a 50-47 defeat to South Miami. Before leaving for South Florida, Fenwick went 2-3 at the Sterling Invitational, which ended Dec. 21 with a doubleheader loss to Moline and Montini 57-32. Owens has not played since suffering the season-opening injury.
Power said Owens could return in the next few weeks. In Owen’s absence, Fenwick got nice contributions in Miami from sophomore Kiki Sheard and junior Jenny Mackowiak.
