The Midlakes girls entered the 2018 postseason with a perfect 20-0 record. Four games later in the Section V Class B Tournament they are still undefeated and now can call themselves Sectional Champions for the first time since 1975. Head Coach Nate Rich’s Screaming Eagles absolutely destroyed Bath-Haverling on Saturday evening at Rush-Henrietta rolling the the title with a 70-40 win in a game that wasn’t close from the start. After Bath-Haverling’s Jadyn Abrams opened the game’s scoring, Midlakes would close the 1st quarter on a 24-4 run and extended their lead to 41-19 heading into halftime before finishing the contest with a 30 point margin.
After the South Seneca girls varsity basketball team graduated 4 starting seniors from a group that captured a NYSPHSAA Championship and a went to the NYS Final Four in consecutive years, many assumed that South Seneca would spend a year or two to rebuild their program back to championship status. Those people were wrong. South Seneca’s girls basketball program isn’t skipping a beat after Saturday’s 55-36 win over Red Jacket to capture the 2018 Section V Class C2 Championship at Rush-Henrietta High School. It was the South Seneca’s third straight Sectional title.
