Daily Herald report

Senior Justyna Chojnowski recorded career highs of 20 points and 20 rebounds along with 5 steals to help Leyden's girls basketball team to a 47-27 win over visiting Elmwood Park in the nonconference game in Northlake.

"Justyna (5-10 forward) was very tough on the boards and she scored a lot of layups and putbacks," said Leyden coach Drewann Pancratz, a former Schaumburg High basketball-volleyball standout. "When she got the ball, she attacked the basket."

Also reaching double figures for the Eagles (5-21, 1-9) was sophomore guard Alondra Chavarria, who scored 16 points.

"Alondra had a lot more jumpers than usual and also drove to the basket well," Pancratz said.

Senior guard Vik Galizia added 11 points with 6 assists and 2 steals and junior guard Silvia Vasquez had 3 steals and 2 rebounds.

The Eagles hosted "World Cancer Night' and raised more than $1,000 for the cause.
