Thornton Academy Girls Basketball
Keneisha DiRamio of Deering pulls up for a jumper over Olivia Shaw of Thornton Academy. Deering won 33-25 and will meet Cheverus in the semifinals.
|Coach: Eric Marston, third year
Last year: 11-9, lost in West quarterfinals
Returning starters: 3
Impact players: Tori Lands, sr., F; Katie McCrum, soph., G; Olivia Shaw,
jr., F; Lauren Leskowsky, jr., C; Aurora Connolly, sr., F; Ashley Howe,
Outlook: The Trojans look to have one of the better teams in the SMAA
this year despite several key losses and injuries. In Shaw they have one
of the SMAA’s brightest young stars, capable of playing inside or out.
McCrum gained much experience in her rookie season and is much improved.
The team is versatile and deep, with many players capable of playing
several positions. Look for this team to make a deep run in the playoffs.
