Coach Matt Lang '94 returns to lead the Patrick Henry Women's Basketball program after graduating from here in 1994.  He's hoping to bring our Program back to the glory days of when he was a student here.  Here is Coach Lang on first impressions of his team:   "This year's squad is a very young and inexperienced one, full of freshman and sophomores with a couple of juniors and seniors sprinkled in. The attitudes of these young ladies has been tremendous so far this season! They come to each practice ready to work and give it their all; at this point making my transition as a first time head coach a seamless one! 
 
Our team had their first game of the season on November 27th taking on St. Agnes in St.Paul. We lost by a final score of 63-23. We had a rough first half giving up 39 points, but played extremely hard in the second half giving up only 24 points! Led by our captains; senior Tasheanna Washington and freshman Niara Keyes. Our team played better defense and were a little more patient on offense in the second  half.
 
Senior Shakyria Jackson, sophomores Malli Holmberg, Ja'Vae Williams, Samantha Lee and star volleyball player Erica Spies, followed by freshmen Je'nee Brown and Kattelyn Dunbar, all contributed in positive ways, getting valuable experience. We look forward to spending this season getting better together and establishing a more positive and disciplined program. Our home opener is Thursday, December 6th against North Branch so we hope to get as much support as possible. JV game starts at 5:30 followed by the Varsity at 7:00. Hope to see you then!"
