2003 TimesLedger All-Queens CHSAA Girls Basketball Teams

First Team

Roslyn Gold-Onwude    G.    So.    Molloy

The were plenty of times during the season when Gold-Onwude was the best player on the floor, and that phenomenon will undoubtedly increase next year. As a sophomore, the Rego Park resident averaged about 14.5 points per game, 8 rebounds and 5 steals per game. “She can control the game just with her ballhandling,” coach Marty Towey said. “She sees the court very well. She allows everyone else to be better. She can play with anybody.”

Caitlin Kennedy    C-F.    Sr.    St. Francis Prep

Called “a warrior” by coach Tom Finn, Kennedy has played 86 games in three years for the Terriers, leading Prep in rebounds all three seasons. This year she averaged 13.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, while recording 46 steals and 80 assists. The 5-foot-11 Baldwin, L.I. resident will play ball at Stonehill College in Massachusetts next season.

Amanda LoCascio    PG.    Sr.    Christ the King

LoCascio was the rock on the CHSAA state championship Royals. Running the offense out of the point guard position, the Maspeth native proved to be as versatile as she is talented, averaging 8.5 points, 5.9 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game. One of seven Division I signees on CK, LoCascio will attend George Washington University in the fall.

Leslie Dickinson    G.    Sr.    Christ the King

The third guard or swingman in the Royals’ dangerous backcourt, along with LoCascio and Doron, Dickinson was as much a threat as any, scoring 13.8 points per game while dishing out 3.2 assists and snatching a team-high 6.9 rebounds per contest. The Queens Village native will play for James Madison in September.

Rachele Burriesci    C.    Sr.    Mary Louis

“Without Reachele we wouldn’t have had a team this year,” said coach Joe Lewinger. And it would be hard to argue. The Middle Village native averaged 17.4 points per game during January and February — 14.9 overall — as well as 8 rebounds and an unofficial five charges per game. The 5-foot-7 center will play for Division II New York Institute of Technology next year.

Second Team

Candice Lindsay    F.    Sr.    Christ the King

The talent on the Royals did not stop with the backcourt, as Lindsay — along with fellow forward Corrine Turner, proved more than a match for the opposition. Lindsay, a Brooklyn resident, was credited with 7.3 points, 1.9 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game. She will stay close to home next season, attending Fairfield University in Connecticut.

Jessica McEntee    C/F.    Sr.    Molloy

Dubbed “Ms. Double-Double” by Towey, McEntee averaged approximately 13 points and 10 rebounds per game. McEntee also logged more minutes than anyone else on the Stanners. The 5-foot-11 forward from Flushing, who was a point guard on the junior varsity, also runs the floor very well and has a knack for drawing a lot of fouls.

Corrine Turner    F.    Sr.    Christ the King

Turner rounds out the Christ the King starting five, all of whom earned a spot on the TimesLedger All-Queens teams this season. The Glen Cove native averaged 8.3 points, 2 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game. She will join teammate LoCascio at George Washington University in the fall.

Keri-Ann Jetter    G.    Jr.    Molloy

“When she’s on, she can carry the team by herself,” Towey said of Jetter. A terrific outside shooter, Jetter broke the school single-game scoring record, pouring in 28 points during one encounter this season. In addition to being the third leading scorer on the team, Jetter led the team in steals.

Shaniqua Edmonds    G.    Sr.    St. John’s Prep

Edmonds, a two-year starter out of Queensbridge, led the Red Storm in scoring, with 16 points per game, including a high-game over 25 against St. Savior in the CHSAA Division II quarterfinals. At 5-foot-6, Edmonds did most of her scoring going to the basket and was also a top-flight defender.
