People seemed to write off the Trinity Catholic High School girls basketball team after it opened the season with a pair of losses.
But the Crusaders have come storming back with eight straight wins, the most impressive being tonight’s 48-37 decision over Danbury.
Trinity gets strong inside play from sisters Cayleigh and Mackenzie Griffin, and Eileen Ornousky, has a defensive stopper in Clare O’Leary, a good point guard in Erin Sottosanti and an underrated bench.
In a wide-open league, the Crusaders showed tonight they are as capable as anyone of winning the conference title.
I caught up with Trinity coach Tom Kriz after tonight’s game. He discussed the reasons for his team’s success, against the Hatters and during their recent roll.
