Reese scored eight of her 12 points in the second half and pulled down 23 rebounds for Murry Bergtraum, despite giving away a height advantage to Stewart. Cori Coleman led the Lady Blazers with 18 points, and Shequana Harris added 11 points.
Stewart, despite those late struggles, still nearly had a triple-double as she finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks. Kelsey Mattice also had 16 points, including all three of the Northstars' three-pointers, and Bowles contributed 10 points and seven rebounds.
CNS finished its season with a 22-3 mark and a New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class AA title. Mattice is off to Maine, but with Stewart returning for one more season before heading to Connecticut, plus the expected return of Brittany Paul, Sarah Bowles, Abbey Timpano, Julie Hauberg and Cara Gannett, more great things are expected for the Northstars.
