New Season, Same Goals

New+Season%2C+Same+Goals

Girls Basketball, one of the many winter sports at Holy Angels, has begun its 2021 season. The Girls Varsity Basketball team is looking for a state championship-winning season. They have a better-than-anticipated 7-3 record so far, due to the circumstance that the girls have played several 4A teams and the best of the 3A teams. The most exciting game so far for the girls has been the Holy Angels vs. BSM game, since, of course, they are Holy Angels’s “arch rivals.” It was a highly anticipated game that the high school sports media was “all over.” Yet, despite BSM having the top sophomore player in the country and offering some tough competition, Holy Angels triumphed over the 3A team.

The girls are looking very strong this year, with both returning and new players. In an interview with head coach Dan Woods, he noted that both seniors Grace Massaquoi and Kassie Caron have come off very strong this season. On an exciting note, Caron has scored 1,000 points during her high school career, and Massaquoi achieved a career high of 32 points against BSM. Coach Woods also noted sophomore Jenna Buer “has picked up where she left off last year.” Junior newcomer Ella Prichard has been a “defensive standout.” Other standout players so far are sophomore Kiera O’Rourke and junior Elizabeth Pierce. According to Coach Woods, both girls “have been steady players and great contributors.” Coach Woods is very proud of the team considering the number of seniors they lost from last season. Despite having to rebuild, the team has adapted and is responding well, ready to achieve their goals for the upcoming season.
