Sleepy Hollow has it pretty good.
With one of the most balanced starting five’s in Section 1, coach Nick Romeo could get a big-time performance from any given player on any given night.
On Monday, it was Alex Davis-Sumter.
The junior sank a 12-foot jumper with 20 seconds left to give the Horsemen a 75-73 win over Mamaroneck. Davis-Sumter finished with 20 points behind teammate Grace Carr’s game-high 30 points.
“You go into some games thinking, ‘Who’s having it today, who’s ready to play today?’” Romeo said. “Thankfully, everyone is ready to play.”
Jenny Bucci added 15 points, all on 3-pointers, and Vanessa Onwe nearly posted a double-double in the win. Aliza Kantor had 24 points for the Tigers, who missed a go-ahead 3-pointer with eight seconds left.
Sleepy Hollow (9-2) had to cancel or hold short-handed practices last week due to team illnesses, including captains Carr and Jessica Tucci.
Best of the rest: Liz Curcio (15 points, 14 rebounds) and Josie Amerson (14 points, 17 rebounds) led Holy Child to a 58-25 win over St. Luke’s. … Jackie Handelman scored 15 points for Blind Brook in a 51-46 win over Westlake. … Stef Frolo had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Hackley in a 57-27 win over Dalton. … Jordan Amorelli scored 17 points for Pelham in a 59-37 win over Bronxville. … Laurilyn Gelardi had 26 points and 13 rebounds for Irvington in a 58-44 win over Dobbs Ferry. … Asjha White-Silas and Lauren Smith each scored 11 points for New Rochelle in a 55-18 win over Saunders.
