COVENTRY, February 4 – The Canton High girls basketball team has made it look easy this winter. After splitting their first two games of the season, the Warriors have run off 15 consecutive wins and clinched a share of the North Central Connecticut Conference championship with a 61-43 win over Coventry on Tuesday.

Canton (15-2, 13-0 NCCC) can capture the championship outright with a win over SMSA on Friday beginning at 6:45 p.m. in the Canton gym or have Suffield (10-5, 9-1 NCCC) lose another game in the league.

All-State guard Abby Charron led the way for Canton against the Patriots with 15 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and six steals. Teammate Gabbie Schinkel had 11 points, five blocks and pulled down four rebounds in the win. Allison Celmer brought down seven rebounds, dished out three assists and scored four points.

Grace Treacy had nine points, five rebounds and two blocks while Jenna Cuniowski had eight points, five rebounds and a pair of steals.

It is the third straight NCCC championship for the Warriors – a new accomplishment for the program. Canton won back-to-back titles in 1998 and 1999.
