Kitley and King Carry NWG to Title #2
CHAPEL HILL -
Northwest Guilford women's basketball team capture their 2nd consecutive state NCHSAA 4A title. It was their 3rd consecutive trip to the title game as well. SE Raleigh was the opponent for 2 of 3 games, unfortunately it was they fell on the losing end of both.
NW Guilford's center Elizabeth Kitley proved to be the difference once again. SE Raleigh spent most the first half shooting over the outstretched hands of Kitley. It worked really well but then when the shots didn't fall like they did the first half, then the turnovers started adding up.
Guard Cayla King had to fight most of the game through double teams and traps before she was able to get some shots to fall. Senior Bria Gibbs didn't have the points but grabbed a critical rebound late to help seal the win the Northwest Vikings.
BAD NEWS for the other teams in the state, Northwest Guilford has a team full of juniors and 3 seniors. Neither of which names are Kitley or King.
