Girls' Basketball - Varsity
The girls' basketball program at Portsmouth Abbey encourages students to reach their full potential both on and off the court. Players are challenged to improve their individual ball handling skills, shooting, defense and rebounding in order to improve as a team and attain team goals set throughout the season. The girls' basketball program includes both a junior varsity and varsity level, allowing ample practice time to thoroughly prepare for each contest. Team play is stressed in all aspects with a particular emphasis on team defense, forcing our opponents to earn every point they score.
Our girls' varsity basketball team is a member of the Eastern Independent League (EIL). EIL member schools include Bancroft School, Beaver Country Day, Berwick Academy, Concord Academy, Dana Hall School, Landmark School, Lexington Christian, Newton Country Day, Pingree School and Winsor School. We also compete against traditional rivals St. George's, Pomfret, Lincoln, and Marianapolis.
