Saturday was such a pleasant day, the Fenwick girls' basketball team decided to play two non-conference games.
Actually the Friars (26-1) were already scheduled to play two games in one day as many teams were in the Sweet 16 tournament held at Lake Zurich. The Friars downed Mother McAuley handedly 64-37 in their opener, and followed up the two-game affair with a 48-37 victory over the host later in the afternoon.
Devereaux Peters led the Friars against the Mighty Macs, scoring 15 points. Fellow sophomore Alison Jackson added 14, and senior Brittany Johnson chipped in 12. Holly Harvey contributed nine points in the win.
Johnson's 20 points led the way past Lake Zurich. The Friars held an 18-point lead at the break. Erin Power dished out six assists and Jackson finished with six points and eight rebounds.
Fenwick had no trouble trouncing East Suburban Catholic Conference foe Nazareth on Jan. 26 to win its 11th straight conference title. The Friars pushed their perfect conference record to 8-0 with a lopsided 67-19 win over the Roadrunners.
Johnson finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Peters had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Friars who led 39-6 at halftime.
On Tuesday night (after deadline), the Friars took on ESCC rival Marian. They travel to Maine South for the final Sweet 16 game on Friday.
