SUMMIT, NJ - TAPinto Summit presents a quick look at the 2019-20 Summit High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team, with comments from Hilltopper Head Coach Tom Kenny.
Projected Starting 5:
Sylvie Goudreau, Annabella Yorio, Kiran McCormick, Sarah Maldonado and Olivia Lawlor.
Players Poised for Breakout Season:
All the above, plus Jessica Penner (sophomore guard); Laurel Zona (sophomore guard)
Size and chemistry
Three Things We Need to Do to Be Successful:
1. We must defend, rebound, and look to score in transition.
2. We must score more than we did last year.
3. We need to believe that we can beat anyone we play if we play together and with an attitude on every possession.
At least final four in both County and Section; win another Mountain Division championship (third in last 5 years).
