Today marks the start of the 2016/2017 varsity girls basketball season at St. Augustine High School (FL) and in Northeast Florida. The St. Augustine High School Yellow Jackets girls basketball team travel to Flemming Island High School to participate in a preseason match-up against other teams in the region. St. Augustine High School has a young team this year as they graduated 6 seniors from the team in 2016. Brooke Reed (#11) will see her first action as a Jacket on the court as a freshman this year after participating in the High School Summer League this past Summer. Stay tuned for the posting of the season schedule and game highlights.
On Monday, October 21st, Brooke Reed and her Sebastian Middle School Eagles Girls Basketball Team wrapped up their 2013 season with a disappointing loss to the Fruit Cove Middle School Flyers in the first round of the St. Johns County basketball playoffs. The Flyers proved to be way too much offense for the Eagles to handle as they easily won by a score of 28 – 10. Brooke, playing starting point guard, and the rest of her teammates just couldn’t get the offense going in game.
On the season, Brooke played very well for her first year in the St. Johns County Middle School Girls Basketball League. Starting at point guard for each of the 10 regular season games and the final playoff game, Brooke averaged over 4 points per game, countless steels, and assists. Her hard work on the court added to the much needed leadership on the young team. Brooke will continue to work hard in the off season and prepare for the next year of basketball as a Sebastian Middle School Eagle. Until then, stay tuned to BrookeReedSports.com to see her exciting play in PAL Flag Football (Winter) and PAL Girls Lacrosse Season and Tournament Play in the Spring.
Last Wednesday, Brooke Reed and the rest of the Sebastian Middle School Eagles girls basketball team visited one of their cross town rivals the Gamble Rodgers Middle School Stingrays girls basketball team. In a game that featured tight competition for three quarters, the Eagles pulled it out in the 4th quarter winning 29 – 20 to extend their record to 2 – 0 on the season.
Brooke and the rest of her Eagles teammates played to a packed house. Brooke, starting at point guard, scored 5 points on a three point shot and a nice short jumper, and provided her teammates with several scoring assists and rebounds. The next two games for the lady Eagles are at home against the Swiss Point Middle School Raiders (Monday) and then on to play their other in town rival the Murray Middle School Bulldogs on Wednesday.
It was a great start to the season for Brooke Reed, #11, and the Sebastian Middle School Eagles Girls Basketball Team as they routed the Liberty Pines Academy Wolves yesterday on the road by a score of 31 – 19 to start the season 1 – 0. Starting at Point Guard for her first basketball game as a 6th grader, Brooke was able to help lead her team to the victory scoring 6 points and giving out 6 assists to her teammates during the game.
The next game for the Sebastian Middle School Eagles Girls Basketball Team is scheduled for Wednesday, September 18th against their cross town rivals Gamble Rodgers Middle School Stingrays.
