Windham Girls Pull Off Quarterfinal Upset, End Season in Semis
Windham guard Kelsey Schiebel drives to the basket against Kearsarge in the semifinals
Bernadette Connors leads the Windham fast break in the quarterfinals
by Chris White There’s no doubt that a great defense gives you a great chance to win in the postseason, and the Windham High girls’ basketball team proved it in the Division II quarterfinals on Friday, March 2. The ninth-ranked Jaguars stunned top-seeded Hollis-Brookline, 61-39, in front of a packed gymnasium at Hollis-Brookline High School. Windham started the game off strong, grabbing a 12-6 lead after one quarter, but Hollis-Brookline came back to tie it, 22-22, by halftime. Windham kept at it in the second half and took a 39-33 lead by the end of the third. A 6-0 Jaguar run in the first three minutes of the final frame gave Windham a 12-point edge and essentially broke Hollis-Brookline.

Windham’s Kerry White goes up strong for a lay-up against Hollis-Brookline
Over the last five minutes of the game, Hollis-Brookline was forced into an unfamiliar position of playing with a double-digit deficit. The Jaguars capitalized on the opportunity, extending their lead to 53-37 with two minutes to go and poured it on from there. In the end, the Jags outscored Hollis-Brookline 22-6 in the fourth quarter to earn the win convincingly. Kelsey Schiebel led Windham’s offense with 15 points, while Kerry White registered a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Bernadette Connors also had 13 points and Brianna Angelini contributed 11 points off the bench. Other Windham scorers included Clairee Putnam (four points), Amanda Schiebel (three points), and Ashley Adamson (two points). While the Jaguars had a balanced scoring attack, their defense is what set the tone. “We played great team defense tonight,” Windham coach Joe Mason said. “We did a good job of stopping their transition game. We made a conscious effort to not let them beat us in transition. If we made them play half-court offense and we transitioned well instead, that would work in our favor.” The win over Hollis-Brookline earned Windham the right to
play fifth-seeded Kearsarge in the semifinals at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester on Monday, March 5. The
Jags looked to knock off another higher seed in their first-ever visit to the semifinal round, but fell short in a 42-40 decision that could have gone either way. Windham held a 15-13 lead at halftime of a defensive battle, but
Kearsarge’s offense came alive to score 18 points in the third quarter and held a 31-26 advantage heading into the final frame. Windham tied the score at 31-31 early in the fourth, but Kearsarge answered with a 7-0 run to go up 38-31. The Jags whittled their deficit down to two points, 42-40, with 12 seconds remaining and had to go the length of the floor out of a timeout. They ran their play successfully and got an open look, but the shot was off the mark and Kearsarge grabbed the rebound as time expired. Connors led the Jaguars with 17 points, while White was also in double figures with 10 points. Also contributing to Windham’s offense were Putnam (six points), Kelsey Schiebel (three points), Adamson (two points), and Angelini (two points). As seniors, White and Adamson played their last games for
Windham in the semifinal contest. The Jaguars finished a solid season with a record of 15-6 in Division II and a 19-6 record overall. In addition to their semifinal appearance, the Jags also captured the Nashua North Holiday Tournament championship back in December.
