With a 16-6 record, the girls’ basketball team has played a strong season this year.

Despite graduating three seniors last year, many players are “stepping up and developing their roles,” Head Coach Ms. Courtney Tierney said.

One outstanding game this season was against Peddie. With a final score of 68-53, the team played with “tremendous heart and focus,” Ms. Tierney said. “Our hustle and the pace in which we played and scored was amazing.” The team has also won games against Voorhees, Mount St. Mary, Somerville, Warren Hills, North Plainfield, and Hillsborough.

“My hopes are that we continue to enjoy the challenge of competing on a high level with the best teams,” Ms. Tierney said. “They are not afraid to make mistakes, and if they do they fight to get it back on defense. They run the floor and play with such high intensity.”

The team continued playing well at the County and Prep Tournaments.
