The Ellis girls basketball won two tournament games and went on a 6-1 run before bowing out in the semifinals of the Tri-County Conference Tournament.

In the quarterfinals on Feb. 24, Ellis raced to a 16-2 halftime lead and bounced Corriher-Lipe 27-13. It was the third straight win for the Jaguars, who got six points each from Kinsley Harbour, Karah Shore and Ellyana Holbrook. Annabelle Wright had four, Miranda Sapp three and Jordyn Warren two.

Three days later in the semifinals, Ellis fell to Selma Burke for the third time in a 37-8 loss. Sapp and Wright had four points each. Ellis finished with a 9-6 record.

“We had a great season, but it didn’t end the way we wanted it to,” coach Roger Blalock said.
