Girls hoops showdowns
First place is on the line in two Monroe County
girls’ basketball matchups tonight.
Fairport (4-0 league, 6-0 overall) visits surprising Penfield (4-0, 5-0) in
Division I and Division III rivals Pittsford Mendon (3-0, 5-2) and Pittsford
Sutherland (4-0, 5-1) play at Sutherland.
Sutherland will be without standout guard Ashley Cerniglia, who has been
sidelined since Dec. 5 with an ankle sprain. She was averaging 22 points. Coach
Dan Judd said the Knights hope to have Cerniglia back in time for a showdown
with Fairport in next Friday’s first round of the Livonia Tournament.
Sutherland’s only loss was to Gates Chili on the day after Cerniglia was injured
