CCS Girls Strong In Wins

With the game decided and a matter of seconds until it was official, Clinton senior Gianna Trunfio snagged a rebound and took off.


Her quickness, and slow reaction from Westmoreland to get on defense, led to a layup at the Warriors end of the court. It put the final punch to a 56-40 Clinton win that saw the Warriors lead from start to finish.


Trunfio, who has been playing for Coach Elaine Hogan since a freshman, and the rest of the Clinton squad know that their coach calls for all-out effort for a full 32 minutes no matter the score. That hustle kept the visiting Bulldogs chasing all game as the Warriors won their first game of the two-week season.


Senior Lizzie Wratten hit two of her three free throws in the early minutes; she and Trunfio, who scored six from the line, were the only players for Clinton awarded foul shots in the game.


After Westmoreland tied the game at 4-all, Trunfio hit her first free throw after banking in a shot while being fouled.


Sydney Labayewski hit a runner up the middle for a 15-12 lead before Ella Morse put the Warriors up by six more after one quarter with back-to-back 3-pointers.
