The Cathedral basketball season has been filled with ups and downs. We are in the A Division of the ISL, and we hope to compete for the championship this year. We have had some close games against opponents like Saint Stephen’s and Holton Arms. Unfortunately, we came in second against both Holton and the Saints, but we know both teams are easily beatable the next time we face them. Our biggest threat is Maret, who we play again on our senior night (February 14th, so mark your calendars).
This year, we gained Skylar Lach ’22, Sydney Barta ’22, Josephine Freis ’21, and Harper Darden ‘19. These valuable players contribute to each game and get points up on the board. Both Lilly Keller ’19 and Nina Davy ’20 are averaging 10 points per game and lead our offense. We have been looking to our best three-point shooter, Miranda Giambi ’20, in time-pressured situations, and she has never failed us.
As my last CVB season comes to a close, I am grateful for the community and support that my teammates provide. Whether we’re lifting weights, spurred by Coach Berry’s encouragement, or sweating on the court, I am always filled with gratitude for my strong female peers who push me to challenge myself every day.
Overall, we are excited about the hard work we have put in this season. We are looking forward to finishing our season strong and coming out on top after the playoffs.
