Varsity Girls Basketball 2020-2021 Season
George School vs Shipley School—Wednesday, February 17, 2021 @ 4:30 p.m.
George School beat Shipley for the first time in six years on Wednesday afternoon. Kaliyah Myricks ’21 led the team with career-high 27 points, 10 rebounds, 13 field goals, and 1 for 1 from the line. Next fall, Kaliyah will be heading to Georgetown University to play for the Hoyas in the Big East Conference. Paiyton Penn ’22 had 12 points and Alexis Martinez ’21 (heading to Colby College in the fall) had seven points. We are excited about the potential of a new freshman, Sophia Martinez who scored 8 points and has great potential moving forward. She can see the floor, make great passes, and adds intensity and pressure to our defense.
Overall, we are excited about this season and look forward to the next five games starting with Friends Select tomorrow at noon. The game will be live-streamed on the Friends Select School's Twitter page @FSSAthletics, Friends Select Game Link
