Getting a team to work hard is half the battle, a battle that Annie Lamy doesn’t have to fight. The Oak Ridge junior varsity girls’ basketball team prides itself on hard work and it’s the main reason why the team enters league play Tuesday with a 13-0 record. In their only action last week, the Lady Trojans handed previously unbeaten Inderkum with their first loss, 63-37. The team had great starts in each half, as they led 25-11 after the first quarter and outscored the Tigers 16-4 in the third quarter on their way to a 26-point win. Krisztina Zagyi led the way with 16 points, while Grace Derksen scored 12, Celeste Vitolas finished with 10 and Yumi Drossos chipped in eight. “We worked really hard; the effort was there and we were moving the ball pretty well,” Oak Ridge coach Annie Lamy said. “We’re starting to play team basketball. Zag did a good job driving to the basket. Celeste rebounded well. Syd brought energy off the bench. Grace did a great job being focused. Lauren was a leader. Everyone did a great job.” The freshman team improved to 10-3 with a 38-10 win over Sacramento. Jessica Maglietta scored 12 points, while Katey Nill scored eight. “We were still a little too passive tonight and that’s something that we need to continue to work on,” Oak Ridge coach Greg Lamy said. “We need to look to the basket more, take care of the ball and see the floor better.”
