The Emerson girls basketball team’s seasons got off to shaky starts this week, as they collectively dropped three games. On Tuesday, the varsity opened at St. Mary’s, and had a hard time generating offense in a 32-10 defeat. Thursday the girls hosted Spiritus Sanctus of Ann Arbor. The junior varsity got off to a slow start, trailing 10-2 after the first quarter. The margin stayed around 10 points until the last quarter, when the girls made a bit of a run, closing to 22-16 for the final score. The varsity kept it close through the first half, but their offense faltered in the second half while SSAA cranked things up, pulling away for a 31-14 final score.
Next week the girls will host Ann Arbor Christian Tuesday and Steiner School Thursday.
