POTSDAM — The Canton girls basketball team will get a chance to repeat as Section 10 overall champions after knocking off Class C champion St. Lawrence Central 60-53 in an overall semifinal Wednesday night at SUNY Potsdam’s Maxcy Hall.

Canton (20-3 overall), the Class B champion, will face Class D champion Hammond in the overall championship game at 6 p.m. Friday at Maxcy Hall.

Sarah Sieminski led the Golden Bears with a 21-point effort and Maddie Hoy added 14 points.

Marissa McLean scored 16 points for the Larries (11-12). Mackenzie Moreau supplied 12 points and Maggi Yandoh added 11.

Kelsey Bennett scored 16 points for the Red Devils and Landree Kenyon added 10.

Leah Gallagher paced the Huskies (13-9) with 25 points.

CANTON’S CHISHOLM HONORED

Katie Chisholm became the first Canton girls basketball player in four years to win the Jan Reetz Award, which goes to a top Section 10 basketball player who also excels as a student and in the community.

Canton’s last winner was Natalie DiSalvo in 2016. Chisholm is a four-year starter and a team captain who averaged 15.7 points this season. She played on four Section 10 Class B championships with Canton and helped the Bears reach the Class B state semifinals last year.

The other finalists included Chisholm’s teammate Sarah Sieminski, Hammond’s Avery Kenyon, Malone’s Leah Gallagher and St. Lawrence Central’s Marissa McLean.
