Bishop Carroll women’s basketball goes undefeated and advances to the Newton tournament title

The Bishop Carroll women’s basketball team’s perfect record survived its jittery moments of the season this week.

On Tuesday, Carroll arrived in the clutch on his way to triumph in a back-and-forth battle with South-East for a 45-42 victory to take full control of the City League championship race.

Playing their third game in as many days on Thursday, the Golden Eagles survived a late Shawnee Mission Northwest rally to hold on for a 50-47 victory in the semifinals of the Newton Invitational Tournament.

In his two closest games of the season, Carroll showed why he’s ranked No. 2 in Class 5A and improved his season record to 12-0 under head coach Taylor Dugan. The team will have a day off before preparing for what is expected to be another tough challenge in Saturday’s 5pm championship game against Andover Central (No. 9 in 5A) or Olathe Northwest (No. 9 in 6A) .

While the Southeast game was a real back-and-forth affair, Carroll’s semifinal against SM Northwest on Thursday was more one-sided.

All five starters scored for the Golden Eagles as they opened the game on a 12-0 run, which included layups by Brynn Steven and Lilly Martin, a jumper by Landon Forbes, and three-pointers by Ellie McKellips and Leah Henke.

But Carroll turned icy after his fiery start, clinging to a 17-15 lead at halftime. The hot shooting returned in the third quarter, as Henke hit two straight layups and McKellips added another 3-pointer to make it 7-0 at halftime.

It looked like Carroll would cruise to another double-digit victory as he opened up a 41-26 lead early in the fourth quarter. SM Northwest had other plans.

The Cougars connected on three straight 3-pointers to cut the deficit to 49-43 in the final minute. Carroll led 50-43 with 12.2 seconds left, but SM Northwest scored, intercepted the inbound pass, and then scored again to get within three points in the final second.

Henke, a 5-foot-7 sophomore guard, was superb for Carroll during this critical week, scoring 17 points in Southeast’s win and adding 20 points against SM Northwest.

Carroll also had contributions from Liza Dugan, Laynie Winfrey and Avery McCorry during her undefeated season.
