Our basketball program continued to grow both in numbers and strength this year at the MS and US levels. The depth of talent is impressive, and the energy in the gym is contagious!
Note from Head Coach Ayo Hart:
Our basketball program enjoyed tremendous growth this winter. Our US student-athletes were fortunate to be on court each and every day that we were on campus. Even when CT put a pause on all interscholastic play and only allowed 4 players on court at a time, our incredible student-athletes persevered. While others may have seen the restrictions put in place due to COVID-19 as a burden and an obstacle, we embraced the new structure and capitalized on the opportunity to focus solely on individual skill development. Our student-athletes thrived in this environment improving their fundamental skills across the board. We are also quite fortunate to have the full Hudl platform at our disposal, which allowed the athletes to become students of the game. Once restrictions were lifted, and we were able to resume interscholastic play, our JV and Varsity teams came back stronger than ever. Both teams scored nearly double what they averaged last season while continuing with our signature Sacred Heart defense. Off the court, the girls continued to enjoy an incredible closeness perhaps even more so because they had been through the trenches together.
Our MS program was bursting at the seams with unprecedented numbers. Similar to the US, the coaches did an incredible job keeping the student-athletes engaged and challenged while offering a safe environment for them to learn, grow and compete. I am excited to see the basketball program pick up where we left off this year. The sky's the limit.
