1/9/2019 6:09 AM

In a critical mid-season conference showdown against Nottingham Tuesday, one of Cicero-North Syracuse's youngest, yet most experienced varsity players stole the show. Sophomore Jessica Cook scored a career-high 32 points, including six from the free throw line, to propel the Northstars past the Bulldogs, 53-44.  C-NS led just 36-34 entering the final frame, but a 17-10 close enabled Cook and company to gain some breathing room and close out the win in the end. Cook was the only member of her team to score in double-figures and had at least double the point-total of every other player in the contest.  Nottingham got a team-high 16 points from Lauryn Withrow and 12 more from Amaya Williams. Cook's previous single-game high mark was 27 points, which she scored on Dec. 18 against Liverpool.  The Northstars victory was an important one, as the teams had entered the evening with identical 6-4 overall records and 4-1 marks within SCAC Metro Conferenceplay. With the win, C-NS maintains their hold on second place in the conference, while the Bulldogs are in third.
