(March 2, 2018) The Stephen Decatur girls’ basketball team’s season came to an end Tuesday night, when the Lady Seahawks lost, 64-24, to the Chesapeake Cougars of Anne Arundel during second-round action of the 3A East Region Section II tournament in Pasadena.

“Last night was tough. We lost by 40 to a team that had good fundamentals,” Decatur Coach Kate Coates said Wednesday afternoon.

Chesapeake was seeded second in the Section II bracket and Decatur was third.

The Seahawks finished the season with a 9-14 record.

“No one predicted that the season was going to go the way that it did. Myself and the coaches couldn’t be more proud of the way that this team continued to work together this season,” Coates said. “They remained positive, they came to practice to work hard every day and they tried everything that we asked them to do.”

The team will graduate three seniors – captain Chloe Sass, Lily Belle Baker and Zina Sbih.

“I know that this team has great potential next season. We will be sad to lose our seniors and we have greatly appreciated their leadership among this team, but the young girls are still hungry to get back to Decatur’s winning way,” Coates said. “They know what they need to improve on in the offseason and we are excited for next season.”
