The Queens of the Court
by Nick DiGiovanni on Tuesday, February 12th, 2013
Milton’s Girls’ Varsity Basketball has had an incredibly successful year thus far, and currently sits atop the ISL with a stunning record of eight wins and one loss. Much of the team’s success can be attributed to the tight friendships that exist between the players. Jordan Quintin (I) believes that the team “has great chemistry on and off the court.” Additionally, she adds that the team is “competitive and has the [positive] mindset that they will win every game.”
There are a handful of girls who have performed exceptionally well on court this year. Anna Lachenauer (II) averages a triple-double (double digit points, assists, and blocks), and Kayla Jang (II) has had a consistently dominating year as point guard. Jordan Quintin (I) says that Jang and Chandler Quintin (II) are both amazing point guards who are “very unselfish and have excellent court vision.”
Sadly, there are three beloved seniors that will be leaving the team after this year, and they also happen to be the three captains. Jordan Quintin (I), Allison Ward (I), and Sam Clifford (I) all have played an irreplaceable role on the basketball team in their years at Milton. Their teammates believe that the three seniors have “brought life and spirit to the team.” Erika Lamere (III) adds that they have “not only irreplaceable talent, but also irreplaceable personalities.”
While the basketball team seems to be tearing through their season, the girls know that they cannot relax yet. After a dissapointing loss to Rivers on February 6th, the girls know they will have to fight a tough battle against arch rival Nobles to take back control of the ISL rankings. Be sure to support the MA Fly Girlz during the coming weeks in their run to the playoffs.
