Commitment, accountability, and leadership. Those were the three words that Ridgefield High girls basketball coach Tom DiMarzo used to define his team's lone senior, Caroline Curnal, prior to Monday's Senior Night game against New Canaan. Held scoreless through three quarters, Curnal came through in crunch time, scoring all seven of Ridgefield's points in the final quarter as the Tigers held off the Rams, 37-32. \u201cI had never expected that this would be the dynamic of my senior year in basketball, but sometimes you\u2019re put in improbable situations,\u201d said Curnal about being the only senior (and upperclassman) on a team filled with freshmen and sophomores. \u201cNow, at the end of the year, I couldn\u2019t have asked for a better team.\u201d New Canaan entered the game with just three wins but proved a formidable opponent. Trailing 6-1 at the end of the first quarter, the Rams pulled within 13-12 at halftime. An invigorated third-quarter effort helped Ridgefield open a 30-20 lead going into the final period. The Rams regrouped and trailed by just six points, 34-28, with 3:27 to play before Curnal and the Tigers closed out the victory. \u201cOur energy level was high, but we didn\u2019t execute the plays to match that,\u201d said DiMarzo, whose team improved to 13-6 with one regular-season game remaining. \u201cBut I told the girls that good teams find a way to win, and we were able to come around and make that happen.\u201d Freshman Kate Garson was a force for Ridgefield, finishing with a team-high 13 points and grabbing six rebounds. Fellow freshman Katie Flynn added six points, and sophomore Kate Wagner contributed five points. Sophomores Megan Klosowski and Sabrina Grizzaffi and freshman Faith Arnold had two points apiece. The younger Ridgefield players were happy to get the win for Curnal. \u201cWe\u2019ve always been aware of our age differences, but it\u2019s really only inspired us to work even harder,\u201d said Garson. \u201cHaving Caroline as our leader really motivates us to do that every day.\u201d \u201cThese young girls that Curnal has looked out for really wanted to win for her tonight,\u201d said DiMarzo. \u201cTogether they\u2019ve learned what it means to be a teammate, and I\u2019m hoping they carry that with them as we move towards the postseason.\u201d Notes: Sophomore Jane Charlton led New Canaan (3-15) with nine points. Senior Leigh Charlton added six points, followed by four points each from sophomores Elizabeth DeMarino and Katherine Dunn.
