2A-11 district basketball: Northside Christian, Out-of-Door roll into final

ST. PETERSBURG — Thursday's Class 2A-District 11 semifinals featured two teams that seemed to be hitting on all cylinders early on.

In the first game, Sarasota Out-of-Door jumped out to an early 11-2 first-quarter lead, then held off a late second-half surge by Shorecrest on its way to a 49-39 victory.

Out-of-Door was led by junior starter Mara Falahee's 25 points off of eight field goals and nine free throws. She was assisted by senior Rachel Cannon with 13 points, which included the team's lone 3-pointer.

Shorecrest only had one player reach double digits in scoring. Freshman Molly Manella scored 19, including two 3-pointers. Sophomore Sidney Wall added nine points and senior Sara Whitecage chipped in five.

In Thursday's late game, host Northside Christian took an 18-0 first quarter lead en route to a 54-24 win over Admiral Farragut.

Northside got most of its scoring out of the starting trio of eighth-grader Deja Swinton, sophomore Rachel Boyette and sophomore Heather Percival. All three reached double digits, but Swinton led the team with 15 points. Boyette and Percival added 12 each, while junior Sarah Scultz, in her first game back after missing seven weeks with a broken ankle, chipped in six points.

Freshman Claudia Pizzarelli led the Blue Jackets with 12 points. Sophomore starter Jessie Rubin added six points off the game's only two 3-pointers.

Northside Christian faces Out-of-Door in Saturday's 7 p.m.
