2017/2018 Team Summary

The Junior Girls Basketball team competed very well in the 2017 season, winning 8 of their 10 regular season games. Post Dru Pierson recited the team's motto #FAHST:       Fast A‚Äč‚Äč‚Äčggressive Hard working Strong T‚Äčeam to beat. The girls participated in 3 very competitive tournaments where they played their hearts out and learned the importance of teamwork and dedication. On Wednesday, October 18th the team participated in the Paul Halligan Classic held at Holy Cross. The players fought hard and gave it their all but did not come out victorious with a close score of 35-23 for Regi. Coming to the end of their season they lost their semi-final match up to a tough Lasalle team. Their strong defensive play and desire to never give up made them a tenacious and extremely competitive team to play. The Crusaders look forward to working harder next year in preparation to face the Black Knights with a different end result! Any objective is possible with hard work, practice, confidence, determination, sweat and teamwork. Head Coach Mr. Paul Melim quoted Steve Alford, " We stress the little things, because the little things lead to big things!"  Congratulations to the athletes and coaches for a great season.
