Yesterday, the 8th grade girls' basketball team wrapped up it's season against SMC. The girls finished with a great win, with some of their better team play and defense. The girls shared the basketball and got solid tries at the basket. Leading the scoring was Marie-Ange Lohomboli, putting in 22 points! Sarah had 8, with plenty of assists to go with them. Thank you to the five seventh graders who helped the eighth graders finish the season: Jenita Virak, Lily Michaud, Leah Cromarty, Natalie LaBrie, and Mad Dawg Cole. Good luck to all eighth graders as they prepare for the high school program next year - we’ll be watching! -Coach Fortin
