The Fenwick girls basketball team kicked-off its quest for a 16th-straight East Suburban Catholic Conference title by toppling Bishop McNamara 62-42 on Saturday night.

Senior forward Tricia Liston had a big night for the Friars (8-0, 1-0) with 25 points, 10 rebounds and four steals.

On Thursday, the Friars crushed 12th-ranked Loyola 67-28 behind Liston’s 24 points. The Ramblers were without starters Meghan NcKeown (hamstring) and Katie Faught (concussion), and the Friars took advantage of the mismatch from the first quarter on.

Liston scored 20 points in the first half alone. The Duke-bound senior also finished with six rebounds, three steals and three assists before being taken out in the third quarter.

Kyra Navarrete added seven points and six rebounds for the Friars, who host Benet tonight (Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.).

The Friars travel to Nazareth on Saturday for a 2:30 p.m. game.
