WESTFIELD, NJ - Summit raced out to a fast lead behind junior guard Kate Martino, who deposited ten of her 16 points in the opening quarter to fuel a 25-6 run, and the Hilltoppers never looked back as they went on to post a 59-37 victory against Westfield on Saturday in Westfield.

“It was a team effort,” Martino, who leads the team in scoring with 177 points this season, said of the victory. “We just came off a loss and we were excited to play today. We played together, and it worked out well.”

Saturday’s victory improved Summit’s record to 5-6. After opening the season 2-1 in the first week of play, Summit went on to drop five out of the following seven games. In its most recent matchup last Thursday Summit fell just short to Scotch Plains, 59-56.

“In the first quarter our defense and offense set up everything we wanted to do. It set the tone for the rest of the game,” Summit’s head coach Brian Erikson said. “We pressured their guards, got the rebounds, hit the boards. What we’ve been focusing on in practice, things we needed to improve, clicked this game and I’m hoping we can continue this level of play.”

Summit outscored Westfield again in the second quarter when it used a 13-8 run to take a 38-14 lead. Junior guard Nicole Johnson led the first half effort with 16 of her game-high 18 points.

“They came out and put the pressure on. We had problems breaking the pressure and kept dribbling into traps,” Westfield’s head coach Joseph Marino said. “But once we got self control we made things happen. In the fourth quarter we moved the ball around better and were able to connect.”

Westfield (2-9) responded in the final stanza when it outscored Summit, 16-10, behind Martina Landeka. The senior guard scored eight of her team-leading 14 points during a 11-2 run for Westfield from in the final quarter.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
