CRANFORD, NJ – The Cranford High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team is gearing up for its first game of the season on Saturday, Dec. 16.

The team is evenly split with five seniors and five juniors, all returning players.

“Our key to success will be having experienced players on the court,” Coach Jacquelyn Dyer said. “Last year, we were younger and mostly inexperienced at the varsity level, which can take some time to adjust to. This year we all have a varsity season under our belts and are meshing together extremely well.”
