  • The Miami Dade College Women’s Basketball team completed their 2013-2014 season on Saturday against Palm Beach State College in a tight nail biting game in hopes they would qualify for the FCSAA State Tournament.

    The Lady Sharks had high hopes to make it to the state tournament this year. But, in order for them to qualify, they not only had to defeat Palm Beach but they would have to wait for the results of the Indian River vs. Brevard game in order to compete in the FCSAA State Tournament.

    During the entire game the Lady Sharks showed great promise, as they led Palm Beach at the half by 3. Despite a great team effort, they couldn’t close the game and were defeated 55-61. Sophomore Jordyn Bond stood out with a double-double  23 points, 11 rebounds and 4 steals while sophomore Vernessa Hinnant finished with a double-double as well 15 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists.

    Though the Lady Sharks did not make it to the post season tournament, they did finish the season averaging 68.4 points a game, 44.8 rebounds a game and 11.8 assist per game. They are also ranked 20th in the nation for blocks per game, and 33rd in the nation for total rebounds per game

    The Lady Sharks Women’s Basketball team finished the season with an overall record of 10-19 and 7-8 in conference.
