By Post Staff

PLANTATION — The first girl to play quarterback in a Florida high school game has thrown her first completion.

South Plantation’s Erin Dimeglio entered late in the Paladins’ 41-12 win over Piper on Friday. She completed her second pass, a screen for a two-yard loss. Dimeglio had made her debut in South Plantation’s first game but threw no passes.

The 5-foot-5 senior is also a standout guard for South Plantation’s basketball team.
