X marks the spot for Paul VI’s Hannah Hidalgo (Burlington County Times, 2/5/2021)
On Thursday, Hidalgo led the Eagles with 13 points in a 38-33 win over Cherokee in a matchup of the top two girls basketball teams in South Jersey. Her success as a freshman is a driving force in her game.
“I still have something to prove,” Hidalgo said. “I didn’t show everything I have last year. There’s still a lot I can prove.
“Every year I try to improve. I expect to get better each year and do a lot more. It definitely brings a lot of expectations.”

Hannah Hidalgo remembers cuts on her eyes and bloody noses — the end to her earliest memories in basketball.
There’s a half-court in Hidalgo’s backyard. And battles with her four brothers on that court — three of them older, and the younger already 6-foot-1 — were some of the first tests of her uncommon will to win.
“It gets rough out there,” says Hidalgo, the star point guard for the Paul VI girls’ basketball team. “But growing up in a house with all boys, I always had this mentality that even though they were boys, I never wanted them to be better than me. I always wanted to be better. Even though they were older, bigger, stronger, I never stopped pushing myself to be better than them.”
