Pelham girls basketball brings up three 8th graders after graduating six players; Orlando likely to miss season due to injury

Pelham girls varsity basketball returns following an impressive season with a final record of 15-5, including a 13-0 undefeated streak, but with major line up changes.

The team graduated six players, three of whom were starters. And senior Mia Orlando is expected to be ruled out for the entire season due to a foot injury.

The team returns four active players: seniors Rebecca Nicholas and Kaitlyn Howell, junior Taylor Green and freshman Emma Namba.

Along with the returnees, the team welcomes new talent in senior Alisa Prela, junior Charlotte Marion, sophomore Charlotte Gomprecht, and eighth graders Colleen Sheehy, Valendena Arakas and Brooke Green.

The Pelican’s first game is at Brewster for the annual Brewster Tournament on Thursday. Looking ahead, you can catch the home opener on Dec. 11 at 4:30 p.m. against Yonkers in the middle school gym.

Their schedule can be found on the team’s Instagram: @pgvbball
