Every game now, we just go in with confidence. We don’t feel down in the dumps,” junior Dayna Sclafani said. “Even at practice, we feel good. We feel fresh every time we come out, and its a new team. A new beginning."Sclafani is one of seven juniors on the team, and with several seniors and sophomores also playing key roles, the team took its form early in the season. Alex Kalafor and Julia Simoes join Sclafani in the strong junior class, while sophomores Allie Warren and Sydney Greenspan have been valuable players in the paint.Under first-year coach Keith Lane, the team has built a five-game winning streak, and he said everyone is enjoying the ride to start the season.
