Missisquoi girls basketball ready to take a step forward

It hasn’t been the easiest of seasons for the Missisquoi girls’ basketball program in recent years, but the 2016-17 season is looking more promising.

After finishing last season with a 3-17 record, the Thunderbirds were ousted in the first round of the playoffs.

After a strong summer of basketball by a lot of young players, coach Jim Daley is excited for the prospects of his team for the upcoming year.

“Coming off a difficult season in the wins/losses department last winter, we are looking to go up,” he asid. “There are two returning players and several freshmen, who will be major contributors. Summer league results point to improvements in guard-play and team rebounding. Thanks to the hard work of many volunteer AAU, Mini-Metro, summer league and open gym coaches, there are many skilled student-athletes in the feeder programs that are just now reaching the high school teams. The future looks bright in the Thunderdome.”

The Thunderbirds start off their season Dec. 12 when they travel to BFA-Fairfax.
