Stamford defeats Greenwich, claims CIAC Class LL girls basketball title

Tiana England has had a remarkable four years with the Stamford High School girls basketball team. She put the exclamation point on her storied career when the Black Knights were crowned state champions on Sunday afternoon.

Sophomore Alexa Kellner scored a game-best 19 points, including nine in the fourth quarter, and England delivered a solid all-around game as Stamford topped the Greenwich Cardinals, 50-45, in the Class LL final at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville.

Both teams were making their first appearances in a state final, and thus the championship is Stamford’s first. Stamford and Greenwich were the only two FCIAC teams to reach the state finals. Last year, the league had two champs: Wilton in Class LL and St. Joseph in Class M.

For 10th-seeded Greenwich (19-5), senior Abbie Wolf finished her great Cardinal career with a team-high 14 points and nine rebounds. She also had two blocks and three assists.

Junior Emily Anderson had 12 points and five rebounds. Senior Caroline Beneville and junior Jayla Faison each scored seven points, with Faison also gaining five rebounds and three assists.

For fourth-seeded Stamford (25-2), England filled the stat sheet, with 10 points, seven assists, six steals, three rebounds and two blocks.

Kellner had seven rebounds to go along with her 19 points; sophomore Andrea O’Conner had eight rebounds; junior Guirand had eight points and five rebounds; and sophomore Brooke Kelly had seven points and four rebounds.
