High School Notebook: First tourney win in 7 years for Reggies

Greater Lawrence beat Notre Dame of Lawrence 54-39 in the first round of the Division 4 North tourney. It was the Reggies’ first tourney win since the 2007 team reached the D4 North semis.

The 14 wins is also easily the most since that 2006-07 team went 17-7.

“It’s definitely a big deal,” said fifth-year coach Tara Mansour-Neilon, whose club has beaten Notre Dame of Lawrence three times this season. “We looked forward to it all season. This was one of our goals. It’s a good feeling for myself and for the kids.”

Scar Reynoso led all scorers with 19 points, Jasmine Severino added nine and Kiana Perez eight. Alyssa Goulet notched seven points and played a fine all-around game.

The Reggies play No. 1 Fenway in the quarterfinals.

Wildcats apply defense

Once Whittier got out of foul trouble, it had no trouble with Shawsheen.

With its frontcourt on the bench, Whittier trailed 27-26. But then the Wildcats, aided by some strong pressure defense, surged past their CAC rivals for a 58-39 victory.

Samnell Vonleh led the way with 18 points, 12 rebounds and 9 blocks while Andrea Terranova chipped in with 15 points and Kiana Guadalupe had three 3-pointers and 11 points in an overwhelming 22-8 advantage in the fourth quarter.

Toni Mariano played a key role off the bench in the first half with four rebounds for Whittier, which plays at New Mission at 7 p.m. tomorrow.

Local duo shines

Cara Cavanaugh of North Andover had 16 points, Kate Hoey 17 points and Kasey Hartung of Haverhill 7 points but Phillips lost to NMH 54-51 in OT in the first Northeast 8 Tourney.

Not quite

Phillips lost to Hotchkiss 53-50 in the New England Prep A quarterfinals. Brandon Michel had 18 points in just 18 minutes and Nate Meehan added 13 points.

Lezon leads way

Jessica Lezon scored 21 points, Carly Swartz added 13 points and Morgan Maiola contributed 9 points and 13 rebounds as North Reading rolled over Boston Latin Academy 71-43 in the first round of the Division 3 North tourney.
