Staff Report

Once again, the girls basketball team emerged as a state-title competing team again as the Rams put forth a very impressive 19-3 overall record this season.

The Rams had a great trip down to Florida to start the winter, earning respectable wins against Northport High School from Newport, New York, and West Garden High School (Florida). The Rams finished 2-1 in Orlando, losing a close one against Argyle High School (Texas).

In the PAC, Spring-Ford won the league championship for a third-straight year with a 47-39 victory over Methacton to avenge their lone league loss. Overall, the Rams finished with a nearly perfect 15-1 record within conference this season. The Rams finished their season in the second round of the state tournament with a loss to Cardinal O’Hara. 

Perhaps the most impressive feat is junior Lucy Olsen achieving a tremendous career milestone in the middle of the season. Olsen, in her only junior year, reached an amazing achievement of 1,000 points scored in her career. It was a historic night against Pottstown as she became the first Spring-Ford athlete to reach this accolade as a junior.
