Brooklyn College Academy lost to East Harlem Pride 49-41 in the Public School Athletic League’s (PSAL) B Division Championship at LIU Brooklyn on Saturday. The loss was the first of the season for the Lady Bobcats, who had been a perfect 21-0 headed to the championship game.
“We were undefeated so I feel like my team worked hard,” Shajuana Henry said. “To lose is tough, but I’m proud of my team because of the way we worked throughout the season. Some shots just weren’t dropping so we were in a deficit the entire game. It’s hard when you are working from behind trying to get back.”
Henry led BCA with 15 points, Shanice Cadogan had 10 points and Beatrice Wallace had nine, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a strong 16-point performance from Daisha Davis and 15 points from Shawde Jones of the Pride.
“I’m proud of all of them, I love all of them,” head coach Kristin Conlon said. “It was a tough way to end the year. 24-1 and my first year here we didn’t make the playoffs, last year we were No. 8, this year we were No. 2 and in the championship. In three years we went from not being in the playoffs to playing in the championship. If we made some shots it’s a different game.”
