Bensalem Girls' Basketball Preview


Coach:  Sheldon Per (23 years with Bensalem Boys, 2 years with Bensalem Girls)

Assistant coaches: Elena Toselli, Steve Johnson, Al Rongione, Julia Cummiskey

Last year’s record:  SOL 6-6, Overall 13-9 made playoffs for first time in a long time

Notable losses:  McKayla Sit

Key returners:  Haley Keenan (senior), Chloe Munyon (senior), Emily Whineburg (senior)

Others to watch:  Pooja Singamneni (junior), Delaney Bell (soph).

Strengths:  Great leadership from our tri-captains (Haley Keenan, Chloe Munyon, Emily Whineburg) and great team defense.

Question Marks:  Rebounding and our ability to score.

Outlook:  “We are excited to build on last year’s effort led by our three senior tri-captains. Last year was our first playoff berth in a long time, and with three returning seniors, we are going using last year’s playoff appearance as motivation for this season. Haley Keenan is a player to watch – she is closing in on 1,000 career points and will be placed in Bensalem girls’ basketball top 10 in scoring. Haley, Emily, and Chloe are three great athletes who are looking forward to a big senior year with hopes in playing sports collegiately. (Emily is already committed to playing soccer at D2 East Stroudsburg).”
