    To say that it has been a long season for the Galilean girl’s basketball team is, by far, one of those that’s-the-understatement-of-the-year moments. Just five girls came out to play this year and just before the roster deadline, two more joined the team. By the end, there were six on the roster.

    In just the fifth year of the program, it was the toughest season yet. Just four wins this season ahead of the mandatory State play-in game, but again, the Lady Eagles tightened their shoelaces and took the court despite the odds.
