It’s very exciting to begin the basketball season. We had two pre-season
games. We won against Middleburgh High School, 44-39, and lost to Pedro
Menendez High
School, 45-52.

This year, our Varsity Lady Dragons have added a variety of new faces to
the experienced group of players from last year’s season. With 11 total
players on the
roster, our team consists of four seniors, two juniors, four freshmen, and
one 8th grader.

Senior Olivia Brown has led the team with points and assists in the last
three seasons and certainly can make it four in a row in 2021-2022. On top
of her 16.0
points and 2.7 assists, point guard Olivia also had 5 steals and 1.7
rebounds last season. She is also 187 points away from reaching 1,000
points in her five-year
career at FSDB. Olivia definitely will play all games with her heart.
Senior Cassidy Dainty missed two seasons with the ACL tear in both knees.
Forward Cassidy
finally came back last year, and she finished with 3.5 points, 5.3
rebounds, and 1 assist. This season, Cassidy is getting stronger and
quicker. She has the fire in
her. Senior Elsie Essex is an experienced basketball player. She struggled
to rebound and shoot the ball last season with 1.3 points and 1.7
rebounds. This year
forward Elsie will take a step up. She will help with the inside and out
of the paint. Like Cassidy, Elsie’s got fire. There is a trio of
experienced seniors that
will continue to provide leadership on the floor. Actually, there will be
four seniors that contribute leadership, dedication, and commitment.
Senior Anna
Lubosico has not played basketball since 2018. She is a hard-working
player. She is eager to learn and play with her teammates. She is likely
playing as the
forward.

It is more likely that junior Oceana Brown will spend this season coming
in off the bench and helping out on the scoring. She participates in two
winter competitive
sports this year. Marvelous that she is a dual-athlete! In the last two
years, shooting guard Oceana has averaged 7.1 points and 6 steals. She
will dominate the
scoring threat with three-point shooting and fast-break lay-ups. Junior
Suheily Merced also did not play basketball for two years. She is
aggressive on the defense.
She is likely starting beside the starters on the wing.

Freshmen Kayla Debrow and Ivabella Essex did not see much action as the
8th graders. Both girls are one of those younger players who will play a
much larger role.
Center Kayla Debrow led fourth in the team with 5 rebounds last season.
She is very tall and has a good talent that plays inside and out. If Kayla
can reach her
potential every game, she will see a big boost to her numbers in points
and rebounds. She also will protect the paint on defense. Shooting guard
Ivabella Essex led
fourth in the team with 2.3 steals. She is very aggressive on defense. Her
ability to drive to the basket will help with our offense. She will need
to develop a
more consistent outside shot. Incoming freshmen Juliana Diego and Dionni
Quinzy likely start beside the starters on the wing. They will work hard
to learn, develop,
practice, and improve their skills.

Our 8th grader Hannah Alford will add another ball handler, who can layup
and shoot the ball, to the roster. She is also aggressive on defense.
Point guard Hannah
will learn to play closely with our center Kayla and shooting guard
Ivabella. Our trio of younger players could help to create more offense
and defense plays.

We will have a dangerous team at the end of the season. So we look forward
to beginning another great season!

there were no captions when NCAA-III volleyball

made a big stink about it!
