Girls’ Basketball Team Will Play At TD Garden on Weds. March 11
March 8, 2020
The girls basketball team, for only the second time in 20 years, will be playing in the Division 3 State Semifinals. The game will be on Weds. March 11 at TD Garden in Boston at 2 p.m. Due to the timing, RHS Principal Dr. John Harrison has scheduled Wednesday to be an early release day at 12 p.m. so that students and staff can attend the game and support the girls. Busses will be provided for all who wish to attend the game. Principal Harrison said, “I feel this is a special moment for our school community.”
The girls advanced to the state semifinals by defeating Archbishop Williams on Friday night by a score of 53-37. That game gave them the Division 3 So. Sectional title and a chance to continue to the State Tournament where they will face another private school, St. Mary’s of Lynn. St. Mary’s played in the State Championship game last year. They lost to the West Champ, Hoosac in that game.
Captains Caroline Elie, Hannah Murphy and Hannah Wyllie led the girls in the game Friday night as the team looked to avenge their loss to Archbishop Williams in the semifinals last year. The team took care of business right away by going out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and continued to dominate the Bishops with suffocating defense and precision offense.
Coach Diana Newcomb said, “We followed the game plan exactly.” Expect the team to be ready for another great game on Weds.
