With the playing field shrinking to four teams, here’s a look at how the top female Morris County, New Jersey ballers performed at the MCT semifinals Friday at the County College of Morris.

Their impressive play helped guide their respective clubs to the MCT Championship Friday night at the County College of Morris, while others performed well, despite their clubs falling short.

There’s an old adage that says the cream always rises to the top. In Chatham’s Maddie Hartnett’s case, it couldn’t be truer, as the senior scored 13 of her game-high 14 points in the second half, leading the second-seeded Cougars passed No. 3 Randolph, 40-28, at the MCT semifinals Friday night at the County College of Morris. 

Randolph held the guard to one point in the first half, as she missed all seven of her shots from the field. But what could be Hartnett’s biggest attribute in her multifaceted tool belt is her steely determination to succeed, which came shining through in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter, when she drained seven points. 

The University of Scranton-commit also featured her trademark stellar defense. 

Angeleen Mulero, Guard, Randolph 

Angeleen Mulero played well, dropping a team-best 13 points for the Rams in the defeat to Chatham. 

Emma Wax, Guard, Montville 

Emma Wax proved why she’s one of the best female scorers in Morris County, draining a contest-best 22 points in top-seeded Montville’s 48-34 win over No. 4 Villa Walsh, leading her team to its MCT championship match against the Lady Cougars. 

Wax also added four rebounds and two steals to punctuate her impressive performance.

Brett fought hard to keep her team in the tilt; her hardwood mettle is another defining characteristic of her intense playing style.
