Though it may appear to be a rebuilding season for the DuBois Central Catholic Lady Cardinals basketball, the team doesn’t see it that way. Despite being bit hard by the graduation bug by losing every starter from last year, those being Riley Assalone, Gabby Caruso, Jordy Frank, Macey Hanes, and Libby Maurer, as well as now-seniors Caitlin Drahushak, Keri Hollenbaugh, and Sabrina Spencer, the team has enough talent to overcome each of those losses. The team is coached by a new face this season, with Jordan Hoover taking over the coaching duties after former coach Michael Nesbit stepped down.

 

The lone senior is Brenna Engle, who played sparingly last year but looks to gain more minutes this season. However, like the boys team, the girls are made up primarily of juniors, and that’s where their skill players are. Led by Alyssa Bittner, Abbey Pettanati, Haley Pettanati, Gabby Sabatose, Carley Semancik, and Ashley Wruble, the team has plenty of rotational depth and experience to keep them going. Sabatose, who is a transfer from Brockway, has some experience playing with some of her teammates as well as significant experience playing against them, so the transition should be smooth for her. There are also a few sophomores on the team, those being Maia Cogley, Shayleigh Gulvas, and Jordy Kosko.

 

After dropping the first two games of their season in the Brockway Tip-Off tournament to Clarion and Redbank Valley, albeit both of them close finishes, the team still has the talent to do well this season, and is looking to prove that with their first non-tournament game against Marion Center at home on December 19th. An 0-2 record may seem harsh, but both games ultimately were decided by a total of nine points. The team has high goals that they’re looking to achieve, and based on past success, that isn’t necessarily a far-fetched goal, despite the graduation losses and the transfers. We wish the girls good luck in their game against Marion Center, and just as much luck for the rest of the season. We hope that our school community comes out to support our girls, and we are proud of them for their accomplishments thus far.
