Bishop England claims Mulkey Invitational title

Roger Lee/Journal Scene Reeves Goettee takes a free throw for the Lady Green Wave.

The Summerville girls started off well enough at the 2013 Mulkey Invitational JV basketball tournament, but things didnít end that well.

After eliminating Summerville from contention, Bishop England claimed the girlsí championship of the annual tournament with a 23-21 win over Goose Creek in the finals Monday.

The Lady Bishops pulled out to a 5-point lead at the half, but the Lady Gators came out of the locker room strong to cut the lead to 2 by the end of the third period. Goose Creek created opportunities to score late in the game but didnít capitalize.

Lexi Mummert and Kate Cornely led the Bishop England offense with 5 points each. McKenzie Clarey was the primary spark for the Lady Bishops in their earlier games with Summerville and James Island. She finished the tournament with 16 points.

Summerville opened the tournament Dec. 27 with a win over Berkeley. However, the Lady Green Wave then fell to Bishop England and Wando and finished in fourth place.

The Lady Swamp Foxes went 2-1 in the tournament. After falling into the Green (consolation) Bracket due to a loss to Goose Creek, Ashley Ridge defeated Fort Dorchester and James Island to place fifth.

The Lady Patriots opened with a loss to Wando followed by a loss to Ashley Ridge. Then the Fort defeated Berkeley Monday to place seventh.

The tournament is held annually in honor of Louis Mulkey, the long-time Green Wave coach who lost his life fighting a blaze at the Sofa Super Store in West Ashley in 2007. He founded the event 11 years ago in an effort to give JV players in the area the opportunity to experience a tournament atmosphere similar to that varsity players have during the holidays.
