By Marcus Stone, Sports Editor
Brentwood’s girls basketball team is state tournament bound, defeating Mt. Juliet 64-50 Saturday night in the Class AAA sectional round.
The Lady Bruins, trailing 26-19 at halftime, outscored the Golden Bears 25-7 in the third quarter to take command of the contest.
Paige Hood sunk a team-high four 3-pointers on her way to 18 points while Jessi Boozer came off the bench and scored 18 points – and two 3-pointers.
Mt. Juliet was led by Sally McCabe’s 16 points and Savannah Sanders’ 14 points and four 3s.
The win advances Brentwood to the BlueCross Basketball State Tournament quarterfinals Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. against Riverdale in Murfreesboro.
