Our program has been shaped and guided by veteran coach Sue Liddy for almost 40 years. A 700 plus career game winner, multiple coach of the year honoree and an inducted member of the New Jersey Coaches Hall of Fame, Lid has permanently put her stamp on high school basketball in New Jersey with a fundamentally sound team concept that has produced 5 County championships with numerous players moving on to play collegiate basketball. Overseeing our Freshman, JV and Varsity teams, Lid’s constant studying, scouting and desire to learn something new has enabled our teams to remain fresh, current and always highly competitive.  

Year in Review

What a season !  What a Team!

This was a team in every sense of the word. There was no “I” in this team. All they wanted to do was win and play for each other.

We started out very well defeating DePaul and a very good Eastside team who was ranked 5th in North Jersey at the time. In the Christmas tournament we won 2 out of 3 and went on a 12 – 2 run winning 9 in a row.

We had a lot of emotional highs and lows this season but we hung in there and made it to the sectional finals by defeating Pope John and then playing IHA in the State Finals.

Our final record was 18-7, with 5 of those losses coming when we were not at full strength.

This was a very special team and they will always be remembered as having one single heart-beat.

Elena Pulanco and Liz Garcia were named 1st team All Big North. Colby DeBellis and Caroline Staff were named 2nd team All Big North, and Angela Romanos was named Honorable Mention.

Elena Pulanco was voted 1st Team All County.

Liz Garcia was voted 2nd Team All County.  She scored her 1,000 career point in our State Semi-final game, and was selected to play in the North South All Star Game.
