MJ girls lose to Beech in 5AAA finals



Mt. Juliet was without forward Ronjanae DeGray after she suffered a knee injury late in the second quarter. She took a spill after going for a rebound and had to be helped off the floor.DeGray returned for the final 45 seconds of the first half but did not play at all in the second half, finishing with just four points.Beech also held MJ center Sally McCabe to nine points for the game, double-teaming her on defense and forcing Mt. Juliet to score from the perimeter. It was a vast improvement from the 12 inside buckets allowed in the District 9 title game. By DOUG DYERMain Street Media
