Dunham Spoils Church Academy's Final Girls Basketball Game
By Chris Chapple, Special to the The Advocate
The final girls basketball game at The Church Academy, formerly Christian Life Academy, didn’t go like the home team wanted.
Seniors Laila Hampton and Sophie Moreaux of The Dunham School made sure of that. Hampton and Moreaux combined for 42 points, 12 steals and 11 rebounds to power Dunham to a 50-38 victory over TCA Monday in a Division III girls regional playoff game.
Dunham (16-16) advances to the state quarterfinals for the third straight season and travels to No.1 St.Thomas Aquinas on Thursday. The Church Academy (21-12) had hoped to add a fourth girls state title before the school closes in May.....
Hampton scored 15 of her game-high 25 points in the second half. She hit 11 of 13 free throws. Moreaux scored 10 of her 17 points in the second half.
“Laila Hampton put the team on her back tonight,” Dunham coach Chad Myers said. “She was clutch in the second half. And Sophie Moreaux played a great defensive game. She’s our energizer bunny, and she plays harder than anyone on the floor.”
