WILKES-BARRE – Lake-Lehman’s Julia Eneboe was looking to have a fun time in what was the last competitive basketball experience for her and many of the players she shared the court with during the girls game of the Dr. George P. Moses Wyoming Valley Conference Senior All-Star Classic.
Eneboe found that fun experience, but also came away from the April 1 game with an award after winning the 3-Point Shootout at halftime.
During a practice session in preparation for the contest, Eneboe and Hanover Area’s Asdone Hooper made it to the finals for a head-to-head shootout in 45 seconds during halftime.
Eneboe got off to a rocky start but then hit three straight shots from the left corner late in her round to edge Hooper, 5-4.
“By the end, I was able to get my stroke down again and take my time to shoot,” Eneboe said. “I knew I had a few seconds left to be able to focus on my shot and make it.”
Eneboe and Lake-Lehman teammate Molly Storz were on Team Gavio, coached by Hazleton Area’s Joe Gavio, along with Tunkhannock’s Christine Rossi.
Nikki Wren from Dallas helped Team Parker, coached by Holy Redeemer’s Chris Parker, to a 60-50 victory.
Wren had four points and three rebounds.
Team Parker also included players from Hanover Area, Holy Redeemer, Coughlin, Pittston Area, Wyoming Area and Hanover Area.
Haylee Bobos from Hanover Area was team Most Valuable Player with a team-high nine points.
Players from Hazleton Area, Meyers, Northwest, Nanticoke, Wyoming Valley West, Berwick, GAR and Crestwood joined Lake-Lehman and Tunkhannock players on Team Parker.
Storz started and had one rebound.
Eneboe had a rebound, an assist and a steal.
“It was just really fun to be with everybody,” Eneboe said. “We were on travel teams throughout the years.
“It was a fun way to end basketball.”
Rossi hit a 3-pointer in the third quarter for her only points and also contributed three rebounds and two assists.
Berwick’s Taylor Montana had 10 points, five rebounds and four blocked shots while earning MVP honors for Team Parker.
