2018 Ulbrich Christmas Tournament Champions 8TH Grade Girls Travel Team

Dillyn Boyd led the Hamden Fathers’ 8th Grade Girls Travel team with 19 points in a 51-42 victory over a tenacious Cheshire squad in the Ulbrich Christmas Tournament Championship.  Boyd connected for three of Hamden Fathers’ four 3 pointers in the contest. Cheshire, playing shorthanded with two starters out due to injury, took a two point lead with under eleven minutes to play.  Hamden hit on 8 of 13 free throws in the second half as foul trouble proved to be too much for Cheshire to overcome. Gianna Donnarummo, Hamden’s all everything point guard, took control of the game hitting a 3 pointer and converting 6 of 8 from the charity stripe down the stretch. Gianna Robert, plagued by some early foul trouble, also sparked Hamden in the second half, dominating on the boards and chipping in with 8 points.  Madison James added 9 points and Thailyn Jeter 4. To get to the championship game, Hamden Fathers’ beat the tournament hosts, Ulbrich, 52-25 in the quarterfinals with Donnarummo and Robert pacing the victors with 13 points each.  In the semifinals, Hamden upended Cheshire 46-30 with Madison James pouring in a game high 16 points. After the Tournament Championship, Hamden Fathers’ ran their overall record to 6-2.  Hamden Fathers’ continues play in the FCBL next Sunday at 10:30am at Hamden Middle School against the Milford Knights.

With the bucket, Thompson set the Hamden High School All-Time Career Scoring Record, for both boys and girls, with 1,482 points. The previous record, held by Katie Donahue, stood for 23 years.
