Bounce Passes: Looking back at some of the best wins of the 2013-14 season

All too often, over the course of the two-and-a-half month regular season, big wins can get overshadowed by insignificant losses or midseason blunders.

Throughout the lengthy schedule contests sometimes seem to roll right into one another, while others stand out above the rest.

As the state tournament fast approaches and some teams continue to make that extra push towards a playoff berth, lets take an opportunity to check back in on some of our team’s most noteworthy victories of the winter.

Peabody (12-3)

For a squads with six seniors on the roster, it’s easy to get complacent in your duties. That’s never the case for captain Carolyn Scacchi, though. The 6-foot-2 forward starred in Tuesday’s 75-48 win over Salem on Senior Night, scoring a game-high 22 points with seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

“Carolyn’s been doing this for the past five games in a row,” said Peabody head coach Jane Heil. “If our games at 7, she’s ready to play at 5:30.”

Scacchi’s Tanners haven’t recorded back-to-back losses all season — and you can see why. They’re the type of team that shuts the door on losses once they’ve happened and move on to the next task at hand.

It was a season high in points for Peabody three nights ago in what could be its final home game of the season..

Salem (5-10)

One of the youngest teams in the Northeastern Conference, the Witches have had their share of ups and downs. But one high point stands out above the rest: a 38-37 victory over Beverly earlier this month. It was Salem’s most team-oreinted win of the season.

After starters Brianna Rodriguez and Jaclyn Panneton fouled out late in the game, junior captain Rachael Zipper stepped to the foul line with her team trailing by a point and just seconds remaining and made both shots to win the game.
