“We’ve won a couple more this year, the kids are working hard,” said Amesbury coach Chris Perry. “It’s still kind of a young group. But the last couple of weeks, they’ve improved.”

Emily Martin has led the Indians in scoring this season with an average of 10.6 points per game. Courtney Borkowski and Amanda Martin have also keyed the recent run of success, which includes three wins in the last five games. Perry also credited Emily Williams, a midseason call-up from the junior varsity, for the team’s improved play.

“We’re just banging away,” Perry said. “The Achilles’ heel has been scoring points, but some kids are starting to pick it up.”
