GIRLS BASKETBALL:Indian Hills picks up a long-awaited win over rival Ramapo
|Indian Hills senior point guard Aileen Carey.
OAKLAND – Without access to the results of every girls basketball played between district rivals Indian Hills and Ramapo over the last couple of decades, pinning down exactly how long a particular streak had been intact. What we do know is that Indian Hills had never beaten a Ramapo team coached by Sandy Gordon, who took over the program in 2007, and Indian Hills head coach Julie Haledjian estimated that it was probably much longer. “I don’t know for sure, but it could be 30 years,” said Helejian. “It has been a long time, I do know that.” It looked like another case of giving it a good run, but ultimately coming up short for Indian Hills, the home team that led for most of the first half before giving ground. The Braves faced a three-point halftime deficit, trailed by as many as eight in the third quarter and by six early in the fourth.
