Julia Focone, Thomese Holman and Amy Rajpolt were called forward in order by teammates to be celebrated for their contributions to the Masuk High girls basketball program on Senior Night.
Coach Ann Odoy’s Panthers then went out and showed New Fairfield what has made the trio’s career so special with a 50-38 sendoff at the David Strong Gymnasium on Wednesday night.
“We pride ourselves on everyone and that’s part of our success,” said Odoy, who has now played and coached during Masuk’s record string of 40 straight trips to the state tournament. “This was a nice celebratory night for our seniors.”
As if on cue, Holman forced a Rebel turnover on the game’s first possession, Focone had two offensive boards before she scored the game’s first basket, and Rajpolt passed out of a trap to Tori Schiebe for another bucket, as Masuk stormed to a 10-0 lead.
New Fairfield (6-14) made it 10-5 after one period and tied the game at 13 in the second stanza.
Masuk (10-10), behind two assists from Holman, one from Jana Migliaro, and four points by Schiebe, took a 21-19 lead into the locker room.
The Panthers upped the pressure on the ball in the third quarter, when they went on an 11-2 run that featured five players making it into the scorebook.
Jamie Madden (13 points) took a kickout pass from Paige Santee and buried a 3-pointer and Danielle Adams (six rebounds) scored off a weakside rebound to extend the Masuk lead to 32-27 with two minutes remaining in the third.
Migliaro (seven points) and Schiebe (15 points, eight rebounds) made free throws, Migliaro knocked down a 12-footer off the dribble, and Holman (seven points) ended the frame with a brace of free throws for a 38-27 lead.
Schiebe made two treys, Holman stepped into a 3-pointer, and Madden swished home another long-range shot in the fourth quarter.
Santee passed out of the high post to first find Madden and then Schiebe open beyond the arc on back-to-back possessions.
