Kaynor Tech girls reach CSC Tournament final

Kaynor Tech’s Egypt Santos (20) has had a big role
in getting her team to the CSC Tournament final.

The Kaynor Tech girls basketball team has reached the Constitution State Conference Tournament final.
The Panthers will face top-seeded and perennial power Capital Prep on Saturday at 5 p.m. at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford. Kaynor Tech, led by head coach Brian Stasaitis, clinched its spot in the final with a 57-41 home win in the semifinals over Windham Tech. The Panthers edged out Prince Tech 56-53 in the first round.
Capital Prep, on the other hand, has rolled to 58-23 and 71-21 wins in its first two games of the CSC Tournament.
In the semifinal, Kaynor used the offensive combination of Egypt Santos, Cassie Couture and Sarah Wisniewski to get past Windham. In the quarterfinal against Prince, the Panther offense was led by Santos, Couture and Wisniewski. On the backboards, Santos and Roberta King both reached double digits in rebounds.
Kaynor Tech and Capital Prep didn’t meet during the regular season. The Panthers are the No. 2 seed in the CSC Tournament.
