The Rockin’ Radnor Girls, a basketball team made up of 12 fourth-grade girls from Radnor Elementary School, brought their basketball skills to the Nerney Field House on Monday, Jan. 23, during halftime of the women’s basketball game. The team was invited by women’s head coach Kate Pearson to play in front of Cabrini’s fans.
The Rockin’ Radnor Girls play in the Malvern Basketball League and are coached by David Granson and Bill Gallagher. The team has a 5-1 record this year and have four games remaining on their schedule.
Many of the team’s young players have used the experience to learn how to improve their basketball skills.
Bayla Granson, one of the team’s players, cited Michelle Petronaci, Brittany Sandone, Colleen Stewart and Leithie Faison as being very helpful.
“They taught us how to do picks, screens and guarding,” Granson said. “They showed us how to get the ball and guard.”
The Rockin’ Radnor Girls played an intramural game among themselves that lasted eight minutes. While this was the team’s first game at the Nerney Field House, the girls do typically hold practice at the venue. The game was all about having fun and Granson still enjoyed the time spent with her teammates.
“I think my team rocks,” Granson said. “They are amazing and I can count on them.”
