Hurricanes basketball is a strong contender year after year. Since 1992 the team has won 11 District 1 titles and made many deep runs into the state tournament.
Coach McCartney’s goal is not only to win championships but to help prepare her players for life beyond Villa Maria. She feels strongly that the life lessons acquired during a high school basketball career will lay the foundation for a successful adult life. Villa basketball standout Siobhan O’Connor echoes those sentiments.
“Villa basketball is such a big part of who I am today. The relationships established with teammates and coaches have proven to be lifelong connections. The biggest thing I developed during my four years was trust in my teammates and coaches. It not only made me a better basketball player, but a better person as well. You can’t win in life alone and you can’t win on the court by yourself. My work ethic coupled with my ability to trust others have been foundational in my everyday life.”
