GIRLS BASKETBALL IS UNDERWAY
Pre-season coaches outlook…
The East girls’ basketball program is coming off of a 6-17 season and a 7th place finish in the GMC. The 2017-2018 team returns several key contributors from last season’s varsity team including 2nd Team All GMC guard Jordan Stanley. We are also expecting contributions from some of the younger players who contributed to a very successful JV season. The team is comprised of 2 seniors, 11 juniors and 2 freshmen. After a great off-season, the team is looking forward to competing in the “always tough” Greater Miami Conference.
