Girls Basketball Fights, Falls In Finals
But the 2013-2014 squad did, and while they didn’t come away from Midland Park High School with the trophy, they didn’t let the Panthers sink their claws into an easy victory. Midland Park’s 49-39 victory over Verona gave the team its second championship in as many years in the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 1, Group 1 tournament. Midland Park had lost only two games this season, and dominated some opponents by more than 40 points.
Julie Rosenberg was the high scorer for Verona, with 16 points that included three three-pointers in the third quarter that got big roars from the capacity crowd. Remy Sullivan held the line for Verona under the hoop, pulling down seven rebounds.
Brielle Cummings, the third of the team’s senior starters, lit up the court. She seemed, to some spectators, to be everywhere at once, making things happen on shooting, defense and rebounding. Cummings finished with nine points and six rebounds.
Midland Park had two players in double-digits: Nicole Cartaino, with 17 and Rebecca Raberio, the Panther’s standout three-point shooter, with 19.
Verona finished the season with a 19-8 record, its best result since 2009-2010.
