The Crestwood girls’ basketball team ended its regular season with a bang, beating Garden City 53-36 and Taylor Truman 42-35 to extend its winning streak to 15 games.

Early on against Garden City, Crestwood found itself in an unfamiliar position. For the first time in 13 games, the Chargers were not in the lead. After two quick Garden City threes, the Chargers were forced to play catch-up.

Oreyanna Curry, however, was able to change things, hitting a couple threes of her own. She ended up just three assists away from a triple-double, scoring 21 with 10 steals and seven assists.

Fellow star Danielle Clarke also had a good game. She had a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Coming off the bench, Magan Mourad was able to pick up nine points for the Chargers.

The win secured an undefeated season in the Western Wayne Athletic Conference.

The final obstacle between Crestwood and the district tournament was Taylor Truman. The Chargers stayed true to form and closed out the season with a solid win over the team from the Downriver League.

Curry had 19 points and seven steals and Clarke picked up her second straight double-double scoring 14 and pulling down 13 rebounds.

Crestwood finished the season 18-2. Crestwood’s district tournament at Edsel Ford begins tomorrow. They Cougars have a first-round bye and will face the winner of Monday’s Fordson-Dearborn game.


The Annapolis Cougars picked up a big win against Redford Union Friday closing out their league season.

After withstanding a second-half surge from Union, the Cougars held on for a 31-25 victory.

The Cougars started off hot and led 14-2 at the end of the first period. The second period was more of the same and the score at the end of the first half was 29-13.

But the game turned into a tale of two halves as the Cougars went cold after the break.

Annapolis mustered a measly two points in the entire second half.

However, the defense held up as Annapolis went on to win the game.

A big factor in that defense was Shileah Williams, who held Union’s best player to just two points.

Leading the way for the Cougars on offense was Vanessa Cox. She picked up a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Annapolis also got a boost from the play of Mary Lewandowski.

Annapolis wrapped up its regular season against Allen Park on Friday.
