Varsity Basketball - Girls
The Pingree girls’ varsity basketball squad competes as a NEPSAC Class B team in the Eastern Independent League. Competing in the EIL keeps every team on its toes, as one never knows which squad will bring home the trophy. Pingree games are fast-paced and aggressive.
Being a part of the girls’ basketball team means that you are a part of a family. Our program develops teams that compete successfully and instills in our players the value of always striving for competitive excellence, without compromising our commitment to good sportsmanship. Please come to the Athetic Center to watch us in action!
