The poll results read, “No. 1 vote-getter: Jen Bednarek, Basketball/Softball, Class of 1976: Bednarek was a four-year varsity letter winner in basketball and softball, leading the basketball team in scoring all four varsity seasons, including averaging 28 points per game her senior year. She was a first-team All-County selection in 1975 and 1976. Bednarek set the single-game scoring record of 38 points in the 1976 championship game of the Bergen County Tournament against Cliffside Park. Continuing her education on a full scholarship at Penn State University, where she became the program’s first 1,000-point scorer, Bednarek remained in basketball and moved on to become the assistant women’s basketball coach at the University of Maryland.”
Congratulations, Coach B!
