Girls Basketball Season Comes to an Hard Fought End

Audrey De Zutter, Staff Writer

The girls basketball team played Saint Peter Marian on Thursday in the first round of playoffs. It was a hard fought game by the hawks who only lost by four points.

It was the first time since 2004 that the lady hawks made it to playoffs, and this team worked hard to get there.

The game was close the whole time and both teams played with grit down to the last seconds of the game.

As captains, Caroline Pollard and Allura Carney have spent four years building up a team that rarely won games to the dominating team it is today.

“It’s really good to see how over time the way people look at the program has changed. It used to be how basketball was a joke but now we’ve improved and are not as much of a joke,” Pollard said.  

To the girls who have been playing for a while it means a lot to have improved so much since their freshman year.

Junior Alex Sousa said, “It means so much because Hudson’s known for losing, and I think that us changing the dynamic of that means so much to the town and just everyone else.”

The team has improved a lot over the past four years from when Pollard and Carney were freshmen. This year their record was 13-6 compared to Pollard and Carney’s freshman year when their record was 3-17.

“A lot of people didn’t expect us to do as well as we did this season due to past seasons and to prove them wrong feels good,” freshman Angel Bethea said.

Considering their from last year, junior Brianna Cabral feels they have improved a lot since her freshman year through becoming closer as a team.

Cabral said, “We made playoffs and drastically have grown as a team over the span of the season.”

Junior Lexi Moreira agreed, “As a team, we have bonded a lot over the season and that has helped with our chemistry over the season.”
