Big Blue Beat: Girls' Varsity Basketball

By Sarah Kloss '22

Head Coach: Courtney Tierney

Last season's highlights: 

  • The 2018-2019 Girls' Varsity Basketball Team was led by captains Alyson Feeley '20 and Olivia Volpe '21. The team finished with a record of a little under .500, defeating most of their conference rivals the second time they played them. They improved tremendously during a rebuilding year.

What to watch for this season:

  • This season, Head Coach Tierney, beginning her ninth season with the team, along with captains Alyson, Olivia, and Jennifer Ryan '20 will lead the team.

  • Alyson, Olivia, and Caitlin Schwarz '22 were the leading scorers last year, and they return with Claire Keller '21 and Hope Maultsby '21 in the starting lineup. Freshman Bella Goodwin will look to come in and add to the team.

  • The team's main goals are to be competitive in the conference and at the Prep Tournament this season.

  • The team is excited for the season—their first official game is Saturday, December 21 against Kent Place.
