Garden City High School Girls Varsity Basketball Senior Day
Senior Day was held for the GCHS girls’ varsity basketball team on Saturday, February 11th when the girls took the court to play Jericho High School needing a win to earn a playoff spot. The team had defeated Jericho earlier in the season by a score of 47-31 and were confident they could repeat with another win.
After a fabulous pre-game ceremony planned and led by the underclassmen honoring four-year varsity players and captains, Kelly George and Alexis Pagonis, and seniors, Dominique Dragotto and Julianne Larsson with flowers, balloons, posters and speeches, the girls jumped out to a 30-15 half time lead. The GC girls finished the gameGC-CHERRYwith a1-56-8 Page38 win- 09-21-over16_ LayoutJericho1 with senior point guard Kelly George leading the team with a career high 24 points. Seniors Alex Pagonis added 6 points and Dominique Dragotto and Julianne Larsson each added 4 points.
The girls have come a long way since the start of the season in November and juniors, Siobhan Coen, Hope Kelly and Megan Marshall, sophomores, Ally Hildreth, Grace Kelly, Jenn Kubler and Jasmine Worrell along with freshmen Claire McGuire and Jamie Murray have all made significant contributions to the team’s recent success.
Good luck to the team in the playoffs!
