Decatur Girls Fall To Washington, 68-55

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s girls’ varsity basketball team fell to host Washington High, 68-55, on Monday to drop to 2-2 on the season.

Last Thursday, the Seahawks won a big Bayside South conference game with a 48-34 win over Crisfield at home. The win was the second in a row for the Decatur girls after dropping the season opener to Queen Anne’s back on December 7.

However, the mini-streak ended with the 68-55 loss to Washington on Monday. The Decatur girls played Worcester County rival Snow Hill on Thursday in a game played too late to be included in this edition.

After that, the Seahawks are off until December 27 and December 28 when they compete in the North Caroline Holiday Tournament at Chesapeake College. The impressive field of eight girls’ varsity teams in the event also includes host North Caroline, defending champion Huntingtown, Cambridge-South Dorchester, St. Mary’s, Arundel, Sherwood and Southern of Garrett County, which is the defending state Class 1A champion. There are also four boys’ varsity teams from all over the region competing in the North Caroline Holiday Tournament next week.
