FRIDAY, DEC. 17

SKYLAND CONFERENCE

Rutgers Prep 60, Franklin 34

FRANKLIN (Somerset) – The Rutgers Prep School girls basketball team went through a near-complete turnover to its starting lineup and regular rotation since last year’s undefeated campaign. But while the cast might have changed, as has the calendar pages, the sheer dominance has not.

Junior forward and University of Rhode Island commit Katie Ledden, who came off the bench last season, excelled in her first game as a regular starter, notching 20 points and 11 rebounds, while sophomore Mikayla Blakes, the lone returner from last year’s starting lineup, added 11 points and five boards, and top-ranked Rutgers Prep blasted conference and county rival Franklin, the area’s second-ranked team, 60-34 in their season opener Friday night at Franklin High School.

The Argonauts didn’t just beat teams en route to a perfect record last year, they decimated them, as no team got closer than 28 points, and Prep averaged a 73-31 margin of victory. It was more of the same Friday night, as Rutgers Prep built a 16-5 lead after one quarter, with the Warriors not getting their first points until there were 2:00 left in the period, and extended the advantage to 33-13 by halftime.

“I think the bar is always the bar, and we’re never going to lower the bar, even if it’s a new team,” said Rutgers Prep coach Mary Klinger, whose team lost four starters to graduation and another regular to transfer. “My expectation of kids coming into the program is they raise up. It’s either play harder or you don’t play. I don’t know how else to say it, and these kids understand that.”

“Everyone knows this year the goal is to get to the TOC and win that, so everyone is stepping up into their roles,” Blakes said. “Everyone is playing more minutes this year and more people are playing, so some are trying to find their way. We’ve been working through the kinks in the scrimmages and practices, and now it’s all coming together, which I’m excited about.”

Sophomore Chloe Escanillas chipped in 11 points in the victory, while senior Christian Midgette paced Franklin with 18 points and eight rebounds.

Watchung Hills 63, Ridge 40: Senior Bella Murray dropped in 23 points and junior Julia Puglisi added 17 points as Watchung Hills rolled on opening night at home.
