Lady Cougars Hit the Court
Women’s Basketball Season Underway
The HCC women's basketball team has begun the 2017-18 season, playing a pair of home games in November to open their campaign. Kari Manning enters her second season at the helm as the Lady Cougars' head coach.
The Cougars welcome back two returners from last year's team who are joined by a strong group of new freshmen. Bethany Serrano (Holyoke, MA / Paulo Freire Charter), who led the Lady Cougars in scoring in 2016-17, is back and leading the charge in the early part of this season. Joining Serrano is Talisa Perez (Holyoke, MA / Holyoke HS) who has played very well this year, picking up right where she left off at the end of last season.
Although neither opening contest resulted in a victory, the Lady Cougars have looked great offensively and have worked extremely hard defensively. They will play four games in December, looking to notch a few wins before the semester break. Let's go Cougars!
