MONTEGO BAY, St James - Holland High School will seek to get a firmer grip on second place in the ISSA Western Conference Girls’ Open basketball competition on Wednesday when they take on fourth-place Irwin High at Mt Alvernia High in the penultimate round of games in the first round.

Holland High moved past Mt Alvernia High into second place and a win today would ensure that they cannot finish lower than second behind Herbert Morrison, who have already secured the top spot.

Herbert Morrison, who will face Mt Alvernia High in the second game, leads with 18 points and will end their first-round schedule today. Holland High are on 14 points, one more than third-place Mt Alvernia-13 with Irwin High on 11 points.

William Knibb Memorial and Muschett High, who will meet at Holland High, are both on nine points.

Herbert Morrison secured the top spot on Monday after a lopsided 63-2 win over Muschett High which had only six players.

Dandreika Wittingham scored 22 points, Taveena Clarke scored 21 points and Nejron Stephenson scored 10 points, while Bianca Maxwell had 10 rebounds.

Jemelia Hines scored 25 points to lead Holland High to a 44-10 win over William Knibb Memorial while Tessanne Nesbeth scored 15 points.
