The girls division of the Budd Grebb Memorial Basketball opened its seventh season Monday night and if play was any indication, the league will have its best season yet.

“We are excited to get the season going and the turnout is tremendous,” said Melanie Greco, who oversees the league. “The league continues to grow and we hope it is our best season yet.”

AMD Industries placed four players in double figures to down DQ, 59-30.

Ashley Guidone (Thomas Jefferson) led the way with 17, Bella Skobel (Charleroi) added 15, Farrah Reader (BVA) had 12 and Kaelyn Venick (Trinity) finished with 11 while DQ was led by Emily Venick (Trinity), who had 15.

“I am very happy with the girls as they all hustled and played as a team,” said first-year coach Bria Rathway. “The girls really came out to play today.”

Greco, aside from running the league, is DQ’s coach.

“They were the better team tonight,” she said of the loss to AMD Industries. “We have a ways to go and will have to work hard.”
