Walpole Girls Basketball is off to a strong start with a record of 12-3. Led by senior captains Jessica Fitzgerald, Selena Giampa and Bridget Lanchester, the Rebels are currently tied for first place in the Herget with Wellesley and Natick.
“Everyone has their own role on the team and it’s obvious watching the games that we all play well together and feed off of each other’s positive energy,” senior captain Bridget Lanchester said. “I’m excited to see how we will keep doing in this second half our season.”
White takes the jump to start the game against Milton on Jan. 26 at Walpole High School.
The Rebels lost six seniors, one including Kelly Fogarty who was nominated for McDonald’s All American. Despite the loss of upperclassmen, the Rebels are averaging 56 points per game, and only allowing an average of 43 points per game. Key players such as senior Bridget Lanchester, junior Jill White and sophomore Sydney Scales have stepped up to the plate and contributed to the majority of the team’s success.
Lanchester is finishing off her strong high school basketball career with a bang. Halfway through her last season at Walpole High, she holds the position as second leading scorer. She averages a strong ten points and five rebounds per game.
