The girls played their best basketball of the season this week starting with a stunning 37-25 win at home vs Rutherford on Tuesday, moving the two teams into a tie for 2nd place in the league (behind Glen Rock.) Freshman Anna Kinz was the defensive star of the game, frustrating the league’s best player who scored just 6 points. On Thursday it was Addie Peretti’s turn to hold Hawthorne’s star player to just 5 points in a dominating 42-14 performance by the Eagles, led by 20 points from freshman Madison Wynbeek and a great all around performance from junior Brooke Van Lenten. On Friday at Green Meadow (NY) six different girls made 3 pointers including sophomore Hanna Faber who finished with 15 points as the team registered their 15th win of the season against just 4 losses. Next up is the girl/ boy doubleheader at Manchester on Tuesday followed by a trip to Pompton Lakes on Thursday.
