PARISHVILLE - The Parishville-Hopkinton Central modified girls basketball program saw two teams combine to produce a perfect season for 2013-14.
The eighth-grade team consisted of players in grades 7-8 while the ninth-grade team was made up of players in grades 8-9. Both teams were coached by Al Mason.
The undefeated season started with a 23-13 win over Brushton-Moira by the eight-grade team and ended 23 straight victories later when the ninth-grade team posted a 24-15 decision over Norwood-Norfolk this past Wednesday night.
The eight-graders posted a 12-0 record while the ninth-graders went 11-0 since their game against B-M was postponed due to weather and no make-up date could be arranged.
The modified Lady Panthers teams generally played their both their games on the same night against opposing schools that also lacked junior varsity teams. On those occasions when their rivals did have JV squads, only one team dressed and the other took to the floor in the rematch later in the season.
The teams members included; Brooke Ayers, Natalie Ayers, Megan Converse, Gabriella Finen, Brooke Hayes, Hannah Hannon, Sierra Keleher, Amanda Mason, Jessica Mitchell, Kaitlyn Phippen, Annurine Pullano, Alex Razi, Taylor Scovil, Keely Smith, Clare Snell, Emma Snell, Natalie Stone, Jayda Sullivan and Abaigail White.
