Junior Alondra Chavarria scored 20 points and grabbed 9 rebounds on Wednesday to lead Leyden to a 44-30 victory over Addison Trail, giving the Eagles the championship of the Addison Trail-Fenton tournament.

Chavarria, freshman Autumn McGee (6 points, 5 rebounds) and freshman Artasia Gusman (7 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals) were named to the all-tourney team.

Prospect 63, Conant 34: Junior guard Taylor Will scored 27 points to lead the Knights to their third straight win in the York tournament.

They will face Neuqua Valley (3-1), also 3-0 in the tourney, at 11 a.m. on Friday.

"Overall, I'm really happy about our offensive effort," said Prospect coach Ashley Graham. "There are still things we need to get better on defensively. We'll tweak a few things and be ready for Neuqua Valley."

Will has 20, 30 and 27 points in the Knights' three games.

"Obviously, Taylor led us," Graham said. "She has been giving us a very nice overall offensive effort."

Senior Mallory Gonzales added 13 points for Prospect (3-0) while Marissa Pacini had 6 and Catherine Sherwood 4.

"I thought Mallory (Gonzales) had a real nice game," Graham said. "We've talked to her about finishing and taking the ball to the basket. She had a nice inside and outside game.

"We were able to go deep on the bench and a lot of those kids got to show what they can do. So it was an overall good team win."

Conant (0-3) was led by Sarah Mazurek (7 points) and Nireet Dhillon (5).

Palatine 40, Crystal Lake South 30: Morgan Gallagher (10 points), Sami Heuertz (9), Morgan Radtke (9) and Erin Mayer (8) led the Pirates (3-2) at the Dundee-Crown Thanksgiving tournament.
