The Cape Coral girls' basketball team have risen to the challenge in the Queen of Palms Classic tournament. The unbeaten Seahawks defeated Orlando Evans 52-44 Friday night.

The semifinal victory sends the Seahawks (14-0) to the championship game of the Opal Division bracket which they are hosting. They play Leesburg at 8 p.m. today.

"This tournament has given us everything we could ask for," said Seahawks coach Kirk Myers. "We wanted to see some tougher competition and see where we are as a team, and we managed to come out with a victory tonight against a very good team."

Mackenna Beach led the Seahawks with a game-high 22 points with Crystal Townsend contributing 13 to the cause.
