Garden School Lady Griffins Sweep UNIS For Season
On Thursday, January 29 the Lady Griffins took a short ride over the Queensboro Bridge to the East Side of Manhattan to play a GISAL conference game against the United Nations International School (UNIS). Earlier in the season, Garden School won a nail-biter, producing a 7-0 spurt in the final two minutes to provide a 40-33 victory. This time around, GS jumped out to an 18-4 advantage at the end of the first quarter and never looked back, winning by a score of 47-32.
During the first eight minutes of the contest Ambarsom sisters Nadia and Tatiana scored all 18 points, which included two three -pointers each. UNIS continued to battle, but Garden's defense was too strong, with UNIS unable to bring the deficit under double digits. Tatiana Ambarsom, Garden's senior point guard, finished with a game-high 19 points, and Nadia Ambarsom tallied 16 points. "Nadia's shooting was impressive," her colder sister, Tatiana, commented. Claudia Kostich chipped in with five points. Senior Center Daniela Triana (two points) had an impressive all-around game, grabbing rebounds and dishing out a few assists. Larissa Ambarsom (three points) and Giana Mylan performed exceptionally well on the defensive end of the court. Frankie Altamura and Jackie Anerella led UNIS with 13 and 10 points, respectively.
With this victory, Garden School improved its overall record to 10 wins and seven losses, which includes a league mark of 2-4, while UNIS drops to 0-6 in the standings. The Lady Griffins have the weekend off before returning to action on Monday, February 2 in a road game versus Loyola School (Manhattan). Garden School will host Trevor Day School on Thursday, February 5.
