Girls Basketball Loses Three Straight

According to Head Coach Lisa Monroe, Andover Girls Basketball performed “particularly well” this weekend, but the team still fell to both to Choate 44-57 on Saturday and Phillips Exeter Academy 34-50 on Sunday during the Eight Schools Athletic Council tournament. On Wednesday, Andover lost 25-55 against Rivers.

Despite their loss, Andover showed strong skills in the areas and showed growth as a team against Choate, according to Coach Monroe.

“Even though we lost, we played particularly well against Choate, a really strong opponent this year. We did a fantastic job rebounding and calmly executed our offense,” Coach Monroe wrote in an email to The Phillipian.

Wednesday was the team’s Senior night. From the beginning of the game against Rivers, the worked to encourage its Seniors as much as possible from the bench, according to Victoria Kadiri ’20.

Kadiri wrote in an email to The Phillipian, “Senior night was a lot of fun. On the bench, we tried to hype up our seniors as much as possible, especially [Co-Captain Rachna Lewis ’19], our Co-Captain who was coming off a big injury.”

The team will face Exeter on Saturday as part of Andover/Exeter Weekend.
