When they appear on the court, Bishop fans prepare to see basketball played at its best. The Lady Bishops have earned 7 State Division 3 banners, most recently in 2013,’ 15,’ 17 and ‘18 and are in pursuit of another one this year. With recent impressive wins over Dedham, 61 -31 and Rockland, 72 -48, the women are looking forward to the Semi- final competition against Apponequt. A victory there sends these talented athletes to a Garden Party!
Junior Meg Mercel (Plymouth) speaks for what many of the Team is feeling as the season turns into tournament play: “We are really confident and we are playing better as a team because we know it’s either win or go home. Everyone expects us to win. If we don’t win, it’s not what we trained for all season and that’s what really motives us. It’s pressure, but it’s always fun, of course.”
Girls Basketball has given fans a lot to cheer about this year. The Lady Bishops have shared with the AWHS community their skillful talents, good sportsmanship and tenacity which makes all of us proud. And we get to enjoy the ride of another championship season.
