Melissa Bakowski had 11 rebounds to go with her eight points, while Marissa Hudgins mixed in eight points, six rebounds and six steals. Grace Osterdale contributed seven points as Central Square’s Schyler Lax led her side with 21 points.
As the boys host the opening round of its holiday tournament next Friday, the girls Wildcats visit Rome Free Academy, setting up a Jan. 3 rematch with Westhill, the state’s no. 4-ranked Class B team, who gave WG its lone defeat in a 58-56 classic on Dec. 9.
