“The Newton South varsity girls’ basketball team completed their 2020-2021 season with a 9-3 record. The team finished the regular season with a 7-1 record vs. DCL Large opponents, earning the #1 seed in the DCL Cup Tournament.
The team was led by a six-player senior class – Abby Altman, Lily Altman, Abby Matthews, Erin McElduff, Amaris Mills, and Siobhan Murphy. Amaris Mills, a Boston Herald All-Scholastic as a junior, averaged 21 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 3.6 steals per game, and finished her career with 1,043 total points.
Sophomore Maddy Genser contributed 15.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 3.5 steals per game in helping the team to a 6-1 start before her season was cut short by injury.
While a series of injuries to key players ultimately proved too much to overcome in the league tournament, the season was marked by key contributions from numerous players up and down the roster, including juniors Katy Blanusa and Caroline Hoban and sophomores Tatum Murray and Gabi Dos Anjos. We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 season.”
