Coach: Ed Conroy
Last season: (6-9 IAAM C, 7-11)
Top players: Senior Mallory Pappas (F); junior Sabrina DeLeonibus (PG); sophomores Ka'Mari Robinson (G) and Alayna Newsome (F).
What to expect: Coach Ed Conroy is entering his second season with the Lady Dragons, and with senior forward Mallory Pappas, and junior guard Sabrina DeLeonibus heading the offense, Glenelg Country will see its share of success.
The team’s first win came in a rivalry match-up with Chapelgate, where both DeLeonibus and Pappas scored and distributed with ease.
“Sabrina is an offensive dynamo who hopes to continue her dual role as assists leader and leading scorer,” Conroy said. “Her quick hands and sharp passes make her a particularly daunting match up for defenses.”
Sophomores Ka’Mari Robinson and Alayna Newsome also figure to be essential pieces to the Lady Dragons this season. Youth has become a trend with this team overall.
“For the second year in a row swelling ranks of younger athletes fill the varsity roster,” Conroy said. “Young and enthusiastic players with positive attitudes and great work ethic are wonderful attributes for this school’s growing girls’ sports program.”
