For the 7 Seniors on the 2017-18 Bedford Buccaneer Girls Basketball team, this is the end of a two-year journey

  • Sherry Assi
  • Nicole Bianco
  • Annie Cowen, Captain
  • Jessica MacLellan
  • Catherine Marcus, Captain
  • Melanie Proulx
  • Jennifer Rennich, Captain

Why two years? A year ago, there were no Seniors on the team.  The Juniors had to step up and fill the void.  It was a rough season back then.  It was a losing season back then.

There were no giants on this year’s team.  No speed demons.  No “30-points-a-game” outside shooters.  There was, however, teamwork.  There was, however, heart.

And if you saw tears at the end of today’s game it was only because they cared.  For a small town, in the DCL, to finish second in Division 3 North with a record of 13-10, is something to smile about.

Bishop Fenwick’s defense was smothering.  Bedford rarely got a second shot.  The Bucs scored only one point in the first quarter, which put the team in a hole they couldn’t climb out of.  Bishop Fenwick eventually won, 45-22.

Bedford has three Juniors with lots of experience for next year: Julia Palazzo, Joelle DeLia, and Lauren Legere

It’s been a fine season!
