Basketball Women Volunteer at Second Harvest 2014
The Patriot Women's Basketball Team works hard on and off the court. Read more about their trip to Second Harvest in early January.
 
From Ms. Caprini, proud Patriot Parent:  I was so impressed with the motivational words that Coach Lang, Coach Ron and Coach Kay brought to the girls at a Second Harvest at a weekend volunteer effort in January. Every bag that was packed related to basketball and the importance of team work.  I mean this literally!  We were a force in our workroom and had the least amount of waste than any other group and truly had the most FUN!!!
 
We packed up over 19,000 pounds of food and we have Alana (Lily’s mom) to thank for getting this event set up.   I saw the team bonding and it was beautiful.   We entertained each other with songs being sung and all of us getting to know one and other better...
 
Earlier this year...
 
Tuesday night, December 3rd the girls Varsity and JV teams beat Cristo Rey Jesuit.
 
The Varsity team was lead by junior Dasharay Jones who had 28 points 27 rebounds 3 steals and sophomore Je'Nee Brown who had 12 points 12 rebounds 4 assists.

Another freshmen Lakayla Frazier gave us good minutes providing a defensive presence with her height, making it difficult for the opposing team to score around the basket. Sophomore Niara Keyes added 4 points 4 assists and had a key shot down the stretch to help propel us to victory
 
It's a great start to the season, but we still have a lot of work to do, but the attitude on our team is phenomenal!
 
One more thing, we have a Henry alumni who was added to our coaching staff this year, Ron Williams '98! Thanks and hope to see everyone out to support the men and women's teams this year! Coach Lang '94 (see Coach Lang back in the day...'94)
 
 
Two years ago we thanked Seniors for their leadership:  Raekhel Gray, Aviance English and Sha'Kiyra Jackson. 

Crystal Brooks '15 for Teammate of the Week for January 10th for her defense and 22 points against Community of Peace.
