Our girls’ varsity basketball team competes in the always competitive Independent School League (ISL), composed of sixteen New England preparatory schools.
Our goal is not only to build and strengthen each girls’ basketball skills, but also to develop important qualities such as confidence, dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We challenge the girls in practices and games, thus enabling our team members to constantly push themselves and each other as we strive to become the best team we can be.
