The Fenwick girls basketball team will be looking to keep hold of the Dundee Crown Charger Classic title with its high-powered offense and unrelenting defense.

Fenwick entered the tourney in Carpentersville this week with a 9-3 overall record, coming off a 68-65 loss to Proviso West in overtime. They took last year’s title with a 64-47 victory over Bartlett, but, most impressively, tallied a total of 265 points after four games. That was with a different Fenwick team, but if the Friars are on their game they can easily surpass the point total of last season.

Led by Yale-bound senior Meredith Boardman, the Friars started out this season averaging 90-plus points per game.

The Charger Classic championship is slated for Dec. 29 at 8 p.m.

Nothing gets easier for Fenwick following the New Year. They jump into the always competitive McDonald’s Prep Classic on Jan. 14 at Willowbrook High School.

The team doesn’t return home until Feb. 3 (7 p.m.) when they host Montini, who has won the last two Class 3A State championships.
