Barbara Lawlor, Nederland. After a season defined by playing with grit and good hearts, the Nederland girls’ basketball team ended their season with a playoff loss against the Burlington Cougars, 19-63.
The young team never gave up and walked off the court with their heads held high, knowing how much they have improved and knowing that with a bare bones team they played four periods of every game.
Junior Karen Sorokach was high scorer with nine points and she and Linnaea Thibedeau each had five rebounds.
