Spackenkill High School sophomore Jazmin Diggs scored a game-high 22 points as the host Spartans defeated Saugerties 56-35 on Friday to improve to 1-1 .
"I thought we came and played with a lot of energy," Spackenkill coach Don Neise said. "I don't know if it was because it was the first home game, but once we got some confidence and had some defensive pressure, the girls started to really work together well on the floor."
Anna Thompson and Seana Tully had 10 points each for Spackenkill, with Tully pulling down six rebounds.
Neise said that Diggs, a transfer who played for Section 1's Poughkeepsie last season, is fitting in well for Section 9's Spackenkill.
"She's doing a great job. I'm sure it must be some kind of transition for her," Neise said. "The girls really love having her on the team. Hopefully, they will work well together and jell as the season goes on."
Spackenkill returns to action at 6 p.m. on Monday with a non-league home game against Section 1's Haldane.
