Basketball is a staple of the winter sports season, and both the girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams are off to a great start. The girls’ team is captained by Sophie McFadin and Bailey Hunter. The Lady Tigers are currently 3-1 in league and 10-8 overall. Returning to the team this season are Bailey Hunter, Kayla Cullen, Alexis Dibene, Sophie McFadin, Maddie Strom, and Isabella Niedermair. Some very talented juniors and sophomores have also been added to the roster from last year’s junior varsity squad: Claire Brown, Lauren Murnin, Isabel Houseman, Lauren Lehman, and Julie Ambrose are proving to be fantastic additions to the varsity team. The girls are once again being coached by Earl Passamonte.
