If you have attended any of the Monomoy High School Girls Basketball Varsity or Junior Varsity games, you would know that it is a completely new team. This season for Varsity, the entire starting lineup from last year graduated and left the current team to pick up the pieces. Maddie Leonard, the new Captain of the team, has been a Varsity player since she was in ninth grade but just two or three other players are really varsity experienced. Three eighth graders (Maddie Crossen, Caroline DiGiovanni, and Mackenzie Balfore) made the team this year and are doing extremely well as they fill in for the graduated players. Their coach, Peter Richer, is very involved and loves all of the players on both teams very much. He played high school basketball and knows the sport in well, which is very important. The record for the Varsity specifically is 4-4, with many more games to go for the rest of the season. This is an extremely strong, talented group of girls that is sure to excel at the end of this year and many years to come.

As for Junior Varsity this year, or JV, their lineup is mainly the same as last year, with the addition of a few eighth-graders who made the team. Their record is 2-3 so far, but they are far from finished. Kellsie Sedlak, the JV coach, does an amazing job at keeping the girls positive throughout every practice and game, and comes up with really effective drills to improve all of the athletes’ skills. The JV team usually plays before the Varsity girls, and more people should come to their games to cheer them on. Theirs and the Varsity team’s schedules are on the Monomoy website and are easily accessible under the “athletics” tab. Crowds of students, parents and staff cheer on the boy’s teams, but our girl’s definitely need more support.
