The Anchor Women's basketball team had a tremendous past season on top of all the guidelines they had to follow in order to remain safe. The girls were not able to participate in a full 27 game regular season, however, they were lucky enough to still be able to play 11. The teams that played alongside RIC in their conference games were Keene State, UMass Dartmouth, Plymouth State and Castleton.
Games were still broadcasted and as the season continued, close family and only a certain number of individuals were let into The Murray Center to attend the games.
Coming from a player’s perspective, upcoming junior guard Antonia Corsinetti, explains how the team was able to carry themselves through this process.
“My freshman year we ended up losing in the LEC Championship. I knew we needed to bounce back and I needed to make more of an impact in order for that to happen. This past season we were fortunate enough to play during Covid and go undefeated, 11-0 , and on top of that win a LEC Championship. Personally I didn’t believe we were going to even get a shot at being on the court, but our senior captains, Sophia Guerrier and Brooke Young, alongside Coach Cosgrove fought really hard in order for us to continue to play.”
Corsinetti and the girls continue to defend their LEC title this year and are heavily looking forward to it, in the words of Corsinetti.
“The competition this upcoming season will be competitive, at a high level, and will be a full season” Antonia adds. “We will continue to wear masks during practice and stay as safe as we can.”
Being able to now finally play a full season, the Anchorwomen will begin practice in the upcoming weeks and open the season on November 10th.
