Englewood High Schools girls varsity basketball team finished their last home game with an epic win during round one of the Regional Tournament. The game went into double overtime. Seniors say they had an emotional ride while on the Englewood court. A roller coaster of emotions as it was the last time on the hardwood at EHS in their high school career. All around player Diamante Martinez (12) was excited the game turned around when it did, “We started off very slow and our shots just weren’t falling, halftime came and we were still losing but we ended up picking up the pace in the 4th quarter; I was very proud of my effort, because DSST was the team we lost to in the first round of playoffs last season.”
