The junior varsity basketball team looks to build off of the success achieved last season and to ultimately support the development of the varsity program. The squad is fortunate to have three returning veterans to help lead the team: Mairead Levitt ’21, Anna Matsui ’21 (elected captains) and Alexandra Mason ’22. In addition, the team is joined by a mix of freshman and sophomores, all eager to contribute to the team in a variety of ways.
The coaches have emphasized effort, camaraderie, communication, sportsmanship and leadership in practice. More specifically, the girls have been honing the skills of ball handling, passing, footwork, shooting and rebounding. As a team, they are reviewing the principles of help-side defense and of working offensively against both zone and player-to-player coverage. Both on and off the court, the team is developing a good camaraderie that will hopefully continue to grow as the season goes on.
The student-athletes and coaching staff look forward to a wonderful season and we can’t wait to see you all in the stands this winter. Go Panthers!
