Manor Girls
Notch 14 Wins

By Jeanne Sager
March 28, 2003 – Livingston Manor Lady Wildcats

Overall Record: 14-8

League Record: 6-4 OCIAA Division V

Team Leaders: Junior Jen Taggart led the team in scoring and blocked shots. Charlene Vail, another Lady Wildcat junior, led the team in rebounding and was second in scoring for the season. Senior Jen Wright led in assists and steals, and senior Alys Mann was an “all-around team leader,” according to Coach Andy Taggart.

Season Highlights: The Lady Wildcats had a season filled with a number of different highlights, their coach said.
“Charlene hit a shot at the buzzer to win the Eldred Tournament,” Taggart recalled. “And after losing our season opener, we won eight in a row.”
And later in the season, he added, the girls triumphed over Chapel Field in the first round of sectionals – even though the rival team won during their regular season matchup.

Season Lowlights: Despite a good season, there were a few lowlights, Taggart said.
“We lost to the Family at Family in a game they played well enough to make us play poorly,” he recalled.
And the team didn’t play well against Roscoe in the Section IX Class D championship game at West Point.
“Losing is one thing,” he said, “but not playing well and losing is another.”

Other Comments: Overall, Taggart said, it was a good season.
“I had a very enjoyable team,” he noted. “It was just an enjoyable season – they are good girls to work with.”
The team will lose four of its leaders – Morgan Jenner, Amy Krupp, Mann and Wright – to graduation this year, but at least four of the top players will remain to play again next year.
