“A lot of my confidence completely stems from my teammates,” said Schwartz, who also had two rebounds, one assist and a steal. “When I get a beautiful pass from our point guard, Sydney Fuglsang, it’s so amazing.

Fuglsang had five assists against Glenbard West, four of them on Schwartz baskets. That didn’t surprise Schwartz, who isn’t shocked by York’s early success.
“I have a lot of faith in our team,” Schwartz said. “I’ve been playing with them since third grade and I knew that once we all got to the varsity level together, we just wanted to make it the best experience possible.
“Whether we win or not, [we want to be] having fun on the court, passing to each other and having a good time.”
If players like Schwartz continue their strong play, the good times could continue for the Dukes.
“She’s been phenomenal for us,” Collings said. “She’s got a shooter’s mentality and when she gets confidence, she’s on fire.”
