Basketball - Girls' Junior Varsity
The JV Girls Basketball Team had an exciting season this year. As their coaches, watching these girls learn over the course of each practice and seeing them execute the " X's & O's" of the game was gratifying.
It took some time for the team to develop the camaraderie that they demonstrated towards the middle and end of their season. Our third and fourth games against Northfield Mount Hermon were close matches in which the girls competed until the final seconds. That is when the season really started to take shape. To watch this team in those games and seeing the way in which they played was a true testament to their character. As the season progressed, the games became increasingly challenging and the girls rose to each occasion. We had an impressive 6-1 record over our last seven games and we ended the season with an amazing win against a tough opponent, Rectory. During this game Marianapolis came back from a significant deficit with their strong defensive front. They believed in their offensive abilities which ultimately led them to earn a 5 point win at home on Senior Night. They finished the season with a 6-5 record.
We are so very proud of these players and all of the hard work that they have put in day in and day out. Well done Knights!!
