The sophomore

“We all want it and we all have confidence as a team,” Terranova said when asked about Division 4 North and even state titles. “As a team, we definitely think we can get to that level.”

Friends Since Kindergarten

Several Whittier players attended St. Joseph School in Haverhill before coming to Whittier.

Riley and Terranova said they have known each other since kindergarten.

“Both of us can definitely score,” Terranova said. “Kayla gets really determined and when she drives to the basket, she’s really focused. She always has that determination. Same with me. We’re similar in that way.”

Player of week

Notre Dame’s Yaniery Martinez posted a season-high 21 points in a victory over North Shore last Wednesday.

Three stars

Entering this year, the three best local girls basketball players appeared to be Central’s Casey McLaughlin, North Andover’s Morgan Lumb and Londonderry’s Aliza Simpson.

All three have not disappointed yet. It’s difficult to pick which is the best.

McLaughlin has averaged 14.6 ppg through seven games. Lumb has averaged 15.1 ppg through seven games. Simpson has averaged 16.3 ppg through six games.

Hickey dominating wins

Emily Hickey, a 5-7 junior guard, has averaged 18.8 ppg in Salem’s four wins so far.

“We have a bunch of scorers on this team but we usually go to (Hickey) in tough situations,” Salem’s Amanda Bickford said after the Blue Devils stunned Pinkerton in the first round of the Greater Lawrence Christmas Tournament.

Welcome back

Brooks’ Alex Norgaisse, a 6-0, junior forward from Haverhill, sat out all last year after having ACL surgery.

Norgaisse has averaged 8.0 ppg through her first six contests.

Fast start for reggies

Greater Lawrence’s Escarlin Reynoso, a 5-3 junior guard, is off to a strong start, averaging 14.0 ppg so far in four contests.

The Reggies are off to a 3-1 start, and have three talented freshmen scorers in Kiana Perez, Johairy Hernandez and Alyssa Goulet.
