G Basketball 2000

The 1999-00 girls’ basketball squad

On this day 18 years ago, the girls’ basketball team topped Pierson in overtime, 43-37, thanks to some late-game heroics.

Michelle Spurlock hit a 12-foot jumper with 17 seconds left, the Bears’ only points in a taught fourth quarter, to knot the game at 35-35 and push it to an extra period. Gwen Powlison’s jumper gave the Brook the lead for good at 39-37 and the Bears hit four free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

Michelle Spurlock led the Bears with 14 points, including 4 in overtime, while Brooke Meserole (9), Powlison (8), and Carolyn Gilroy (7) helped carry the scoring load.

The Bears would go on to win a fourth consecutive League Championship later that season.
