Lady’s Tiger Basketball Finishes Season 15-8

Posted on February 27, 2015 by


Winning is Fleetwood’s tradition, and girls basketball was looking to do just that. After coming off a 26-4 season, the girls were ready to get back to their winning ways.

“I just want help to take my team far this season,” senior team captain Cyre Virgo said.

The girls would start their season off in non-league competition. A big win over Manheim Central gave the girls confidence for the rest of the season. Unfortunately, they would fall short to Ephrata in a tough battle. After that, they would go on a four-game winning streak, including wins over Oley, Muhlenberg, Hamburg, and Twin Valley. They would then lose just their second game of the season to Owen J. Roberts.

“We knew so far we were in a good spot,” sophomore Lexi Nowotarksi said.

Emmaus and Exeter were the next opponents the Tigers would face. Both were big wins for Fleetwood. You could say the team’s big rivals came to Fleetwood next, Berks Catholic. The Tigers would fall to Berks Catholic at home. The lady Tigers would bounce back and go on yet another winning streak with victories over Conrad Weiser, Schuylkill Valley, and Hamburg again.

Easton then handed the Tigers a loss. Fleetwood responded by defeating Brandywine and Twin Valley. The girls then went on a two-game losing streak to back-to-back tough teams. West York defeated the Tigers 62-24, and Berks Catholic went on to win 61-33.

After a tough time for the Tigers, they would go on to win three straight with wins over Conrad Weiser, Susquehanna Township, and Schuylkill Valley, setting the Tigers up for a good position heading into playoffs.

The Tigers would face Conrad Weiser in the first round of Counties. Unfortunately, the Tigers would fall short.

“We thought we were ready for them, but we weren’t,” senior capton Izzy Mullen said.

Fleetwood would then have a couple weeks off waiting for Districts. They would face York Suburban. Cyre Virgo reached 1,000 points in her final game on her home court. The lady Tigers would fall just short to a tough team. They finished with a final record of 15-8.

“It was a great season,” sophomore Lauren Lister said.
