After making its way to the quarterfinals of the Division-I girls basketball state tournament, the Essex basketball squad fell to CVU 45-34 last Saturday, ending its season with a record of 13-9.

Emmalee Smith led the way for Essex, dropping 11 after a 14-point performance against Rutland in the playdowns.

The youthful Hornets will graduate only one senior, Josina Munson.
