High school sports are supposed to be fun, a point that hasn’t been lost on Highland Park senior guard Sydney Ignoffo.

“I’ll miss team dinners, and the free food for sure,” she joked. “I’ll miss the team, the memories, the bus rides, and we go to Disney every other year so that was fun.”

Beyond all the fun there is also a mantle of leadership passed on from departing seniors to next year’s leaders. Thanks to seniors like Ignoffo, Alex Dayan, Maddie Abrams and Jennifer Berardi, Giants coach Jolie Bechtel can rest easy for next season.
