BETHESDA — In the midst of a tight race for the number one seed in the playoffs, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons varsity girls basketball team didn’t let the visiting Northwood Gladiators get in the way, handily defeating them 75-28.
“We had to be relentless on defense and keep our intensity up,” Barons points guard Charlotte Lowndes said.
In the first game of a B-CC/Northwood varsity girls and boys double-header, the Barons scored the first basket, and the Gladiators quickly got one of their own to tie the score at two. However, that 2-2 score was the closest Northwood ever would come to the lead. B-CC quickly jumped out to a 9-2 lead, and soon left Northwood in their dust.
