The Martha's Vineyard 8th-grade girls travel team is the champion of the 2012-2013 Cape Hoops travel league. The girls beat Falmouth on February 13, in Bourne, 37-24.
Erin Hill led all scorers with 21 points, Molly deBettencourt had 7, and Whitney Schroeder shut down Falmouth's chief scorer, holding her to only 8 points. The girls had a tough road to the Championship. They had to beat higher seeds Dartmouth, Monomoy, and Falmouth to win. It's only the second Vineyard Championship ever won by any team, boys or girls, in the five years the Vineyard has been in the Cape Hoops league.
