Moving further into the school year, the fall sports teams are wrapping up their seasons and the winter sports teams are itching for their seasons to start. One of these teams is women’s basketball. Last year, the women’s basketball team had a winning record of 17-12 and made it to the quarter finals of the NE10 championships. The team has faith they will be as successful, if not more so, this coming season.
Head Coach Karen Pinkos has been working hard to make sure they do just that.
“We are excited and will be prepared to play every team, one game at a time. This group knows that last year’s success has prepared us for this year and has made them hungrier,” Pinkos said.
Freshman Danielle Sirois (‘19), who is going into her first season as a Penmen, is ready for their season to get going.
“We have such depth and talent on this team; there’s really something special here. I’m excited to see how far we can get with our hard work,” Sirois said.
The team has been getting ready both on and off the court since the beginning of the year, with preseason workouts, team apple picking and team weekend retreats. Building a bond between players is important for any sports team seeing as it translates to their performance on the court.
Coach Pinkos spoke on the teams bond with one another this year. “We have great chemistry which is really important in a successful team. They really enjoy each other,” Pinkos said.
It is sure to be a great season as the Penmen have worked tirelessly.
“Our goal is to improve on last year’s record and have the most successful season in years,” Coach Pinkos said.
