The Inter-City Chargers went 1-1 last week with a 56-29 loss to Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett and a 46-40 win over Southfield Christian.

Inter-City is now 7-8 on the season.

Alyssa Saenz had a huge night in the win over Southfield Christian. She had 31 points, seven rebounds and two blocks to lead the Chargers.

“I was very proud of her not only because she won the game for us, but because of the leadership she showed by putting the team on her back and grinding out a hard fought win,” said Inter-City Coach Nathan Chatfield. “We also had excellent play from our guards, Arie Sandoval, Ashley Harrison and Karalynn Goering.”

Saenz had 11 points in the loss to Liggett.

“We came up against a good team with great pressure defense and struggled to handle them,” Chatfield said. “We played better after the first quarter but by that point the damage was done. I am proud of these girls as they continue to work, fight and improve. I am excited to see where we are at the end of February.”


The Monarchs opened the Catholic League playoffs on Saturday, losing to Birmingham Marian 52-16. Cabrini trailed 46-8 at half.

“The difference in the game was their pressure in the full court and off missed shots,” said Cabrini coach Mike Rozanski. “They do a terrific job of converting on a turnover or missed shot, then finish at the rim in transition in a physical manner. We were sending only two to the offensive glass and still could not handle their transition.

Caitlyn Lefebrve led the Monarchs with nine points.

On Monday, Cabrini fell to Richard, 41-28.

The Monarchs trailed 21-20 at halftime.

“I thought GR was playing with greater intensity in the first half, especially in transition,” Rozanski said. “They were able to get layups or to the rim off their defensive rebounds.”

Cabrini struggled to score in the third quarter.

“The critical junction in the game was when GR got up by 10, and we were able to get four consecutive defensive stops, but went 1-8 from the free-throw line during that span, along with two missed offensive rebound put-backs.”

In the fourth quarter, the Monarchs went 4-11 from the line and made only one field goal.

Lefebrve led Cabrini with eight points and three assists.
