It’s February 2nd and Punxsutawney Phil, the legendary groundhog came out of his burrow today and saw his shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of winter. So how well would Phil do, or any sports analyst for that matter, in attempting to accurately predict the future for the Girls Varsity Basketball team, who have already surpassed all expectations for this season, and have done so without their McDonald’s All American standout?
However they finish this season - and they are currently on track to vie for both the Fairchester League and New England titles again - clearly it’s the ride, and not the final stop, that means the most to the players. Eveani Okwuosa, a senior guard, says the chemistry is even better than last year. “We miss Kendra Hill and Ellie Moffat for sure, but with another year together, we have incredible chemistry. We are not only positive, but everyone can also be very honest with each other; we are all comfortable with offering and accepting feedback that pushes us harder.”
