The Wilton 5th/6th Grade girls basketball team, sponsored by the Wilton Deli, completed a fantastic playoff run by knocking off Greenwich Select 24-17.
The playoff run was a true team effort. Grace Williams led all scores with 10 points. Kathleen Lamanna grabbed countless rebounds and knocked down a key bucket to halt a Greenwich Select run. Charlotte Casiraghi was an inspiration off the bench, hitting a jumper to put the locals up by four late in the first quarter. Megan Hanny was aggressive on both offense and defense, scoring twice in the third quarter to put Wilton up by 10. Kathryn Cronin delivered great effort on both sides of the floor, as well as a key basket in the decisive third. Sawyer Pendergast made some key steals while Maddie Ratcliffe, Georgia Russnok and Natasha Dinshaw added great defensive intensity. Allie Giller showed great determination leading the fast break. Key rebounding, passing and shooting from Jamie Leventhal and Katie Umphred sealed the deal for the Wilton squad.
