The varsity girls’ basketball team’s historic season was recently highlighted in the Bucks County Courier Times. The team’s 12–7 record this season was the most since the 2001–2002 season.
The team recently won the Quaker Cup against Germantown Friends School before facing Westtown in the first-round matchup of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA) tournament.
“Though the number 13 Cougars’ season ended Tuesday, 38–27, at number 4 Westtown School in a first-round matchup, their winningest season this decade (12–7) earned recognition,” reported Tom Pfaff of the Bucks County Courier Times.
“Reaching the PAISAA tournament was the Cougars’ deepest postseason run in six years, when they played in the main FSL playoffs during the 2011–2012 season as part of a 9–11 season,” said Tom.
Coach George Long is proud of the season the team had and the significant milestones they reached. “Working with this particular team has been really rewarding because of the girls I am working with every day,” said George. “The leaders on the team were great. Cynthia [Menna ’18] and Alexandra [Long ’20] were a great compliment to each other and to our coaches.”
One of the most impressive aspects of the team to George is how much fun they have together. “They genuinely laugh at themselves and at each other. It is a wonderful thing to witness,” said George. “The freshman fit in quite well with the returning players, and the returning players accepted the new team members with open arms.”
The team is already looking forward to next season with a goal to be one of the top four teams and to make the playoffs.
