The W-H girls’ baskeball team won their summer league, in which they recently competed at East Bridgewater High School.
They played against Archbishop Williams, Cardinal Spellman, Carver, East Bridgewater, and W-H Red.
The team was coached by Eric Nunez and led by captains Hannah Damon, Brittany Gacicia, and Olivia Martin. In the finals they competed against a well-rounded East Bridgewaterteam.
“It is good for the girls to continue playing with one another to develop that on court chemistry and to have the ball in theirs hands throughout the offseason,” said coach Michael Costa about the experience at summer league. “It is also good for our younger players to experience and compete against varsity level type talent. However, I do not put a lot of stock in the record throughout the summer.
“A lot of times teams are not at full strength and there are many teams that do not have coaches on the bench with them and it is a lot more lax than a regular season game,” Costa said. “Obviously you want to win anytime you step on the floor but I do not take a lot away from it.”
