Amity Coach Michelle Martinik was very happy with her team’s performance after a devastating loss [51-47] to Jonathan Law on Tuesday.
“Coming off that loss we really knew we had to turn it around. We had some great contributions from our bench today, Bella [Isabella Bierezowiec #21] did awesome and Caroline [Caroline McDonald #22] really stepped up,” Martinik said. “Overall, we did really great, we attacked ‘em and our defense was a lot better than it was at Law and I think that really helped out.”
“Lyman Hall is tough. They’re all quick and athletic. It was a great matchup and Kristin [Kristin Post #12] and Molly [Molly Ronan #41] did a great job,” she said. “With this game we qualified for states and we’re 2-0 in the division.”
Other Amity players who scored are Kristen Post-4, Caroline McDonald-4, Isabella Bierezowiec-2, and Kathleen Seng-3.
