Girls Basketball Week 8 Player of the Week Nominees
Maggie Cavanaugh, St. Rose
St. Rose rolled to a win over Point Boro to open the week before running into Manasquan and Wall in losses later in the week. Cavanaugh did her part in the loss to Wall, with the junior putting up 22 points on five three-pointers to go with five rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Bridget Dudas, Pinelands
With a Player of the Week Award already in hand this season, Dudas put herself in the running again last week with two more 20-point games and a career milestone to book. The senior went for 27 points, including No. 1,000 for her career, in a 37-34 loss to Brick and capped the week with 23 in 52-41 loss to Barnegat. Dudas also scored 17 points in a win over Lakewood.
Shayne Eldridge, Wall
Eldridge turned in another steady week for an upstart Wall team, averaging 15.5 points during her team’s 3-0 week. The highlight of the perfect week was a win over St. Rose, with Eldridge leading the way with 16 points and five assists in Wall’s big rivalry win.
Camryn Gardner, Red Bank
Red Bank needed to take three out of its four games last week to qualify for the Shore Conference Tournament and came through thanks, in large part, to the standout play of Gardner. The sophomore averaged 10.25 points, 13.5 rebounds and 3.75 blocks for the week and posted a double-doubles in a win over Westampton Tech (14 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks) and in a loss to St. John Vianney (11 points, 10 rebounds) – the state’s No. 1 ranked team.
Kayla Krzyzkowski, Central
It was a good week overall for the Central senior, who averaged 12.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 5.3 blocks in a 2-1 week for the Golden Eagles. Krzyzkowski really stood out, though, in a win over Brick Memorial, in which she posted 13 points, 18 rebounds and 10 blocks to notch a triple-double.
