The Lady Eagles began their season with a four game winning streak that included an exciting 50-42 win over St. Mary’s to capture the championship of the inaugural EC Christmas Ball Tournament. Strong team defense and a balanced scoring attack led by frosh phenom Madison Wynbeek, junior Brooke Van Lenten and senior captain Kelly Tanis clinched the victory. The girls faced their toughest league competition of the season last week when they were outmanned by a tough Glen Rock defense on Tuesday but responded with a well played effort at Rutherford on Thursday. Van Lenten led the Eagles with 17 points in the hard fought loss. Looking ahead, the girls hope to start a new winning streak against Hawthorne on Tuesday and then face Manchester on Friday in an exciting girl/ boy double header.
