2016-17 Season Preview:

The 2016-2017 Girls Basketball team will look to improve on its successful season last year after doubling our win total from the year before and making the Class A NEPASC Tournament for the first time in four years. Thayer returns three starters: Class A All-Star, ISL First-Team selection and Captain Stephanie Lyons '18; ISL Second-Team Selection Brittany Raphino '19 and point guard Sabrina Zeghibe '19. Toni Geisel '19 and Cassie Kearney '19 also return to provide crucial minutes at the guard position, as well as newcomers Diana Flynn '18 and Hannah Burrows '19. Captain Erin Muldoon '17 and Ally Rooney '17 will look to control the post position, along with newcomers Jazmin Diaz '18 and Kendall Roland ' 20. We did suffer an injury in the offseason, but senior captain Abby McGrath '17 will be looking to make her presence felt as an assistant coach. Everyone will be counted on to make their mark on the team this year.

Playing in the NEPSAC Class A division, Thayer will need be sharp at both end of the floor to have success playing one of the toughest schedules in New England.
