Despite several injuries, the varsity girls’ basketball team ended league play this week with an 11-7 record. Starting for the team has been Grace Orr at point guard, Cassidy Carrafiello at shooting guard, Kelsey Simpson at forward, and graduating seniors Marissa Contento at forward, and Summer Horowitz at center. This year’s captains were Summer Horowitz, Brianna Celaj, Haley Simpson, and Marissa Contento.

Bri Celaj was a starter until Game 6 when she suffered a season ending injury to her ACL. According to Coach Don Hamlin, “The team really came together after her injury, and we have been able to win 11 games.” Summing up the regular season, he added, “Our toughest competition has been Pleasantville. While we lost that game, I am proud of our two tournament wins: the Eastchester Holiday Tournament and the Briarcliff Booster Club Tournament.”

“Looking to the playoffs,” he said, “I am hopeful that we will have some sectional winnings coming up very soon.”
